S4:E5 Turkey Tips
You asked for it, we deliver! It's half way through Spring Turkey season here in New Mexico. Hopefully you are having success! If not, this podcast might help. This week's episode features a special guest with 30+ years experience chasing the long beards. Josh Waldrip is a Sergeant with New Mexico Department of Game and Fish. He is a native of New Mexico having grown up in Artesia. Josh started hunting turkey with his family when he was a child and has carried that passion full circle as he is now passing his knowledge along to his children. While he doesn't claim to be an "expert" on the subject matter, he certainly is well versed in the topic and passed along some great information and tips about turkey hunting great for both beginners and longtime hunters alike. We talk life cycle, habitat, diet, roosting, and of course hunting techniques. What makes this podcast so great is that Josh brings a perspective for hunting western birds which is a completely different ball game from eastern birds! He has been there and made those mistakes! We hope you find some tips you can use! I sure know we did.

S4:E4 Hunt-Fish 30 by 30
In this week's podcast we are joined by Ellary TuckerWilliams and Kent Keene of the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation. Ellary recently brought to our attention a nation wide initiative that is now being championed by the Biden Administration among others to "protect" 30% of our lands and waters by the year 2030. As with many such broad based, ambiguous movements, sportsmen and conservationists including ourselves have our trepidations, and rightly so. There has recently been an onslaught of legislation introduced, fought, and in some cases, passed attacking our long standing heritage of hunting, fishing, and trapping. Join us as we discuss where the movement started, issues with it, and what you can do as a sportsman to stay engaged and informed. We also discuss Congressional Sportsman's Foundation purpose and involvement in the issue. We want to thank Ellary and Kent for a great podcast that was extremely engaging and informative!   If you are interested in learning more about CSF and other sportsman group involvement in the 30 by 30  initiative go to If you would like to stay informed about more than just 30 by 30, visit You can also sign up for their newsletter and the Tracking the Capitols report to stay up to date with legislation impacting sportsmen in your state. You can also find a copy of the American System of Conservation Funding fact sheet for New Mexico on our website. Did you know that in New Mexico, 99.3 of NM Game and Fish's budget is sportsmen and women generated dollars? This fact sheet breaks down how conservation in New Mexico is paid for! Check it out!

S4:E3 Mountain Archery Fest
We had the pleasure of chatting with Brandon Waddell who runs Mountain Archery Fest events which are family oriented 3D Archery events. These events are unique in that they encourage involvement of the whole family and feature some seriously awesome 3D courses and much more. Check out their website here ! We thoroughly enjoyed this podcast and hope you do too!
March 31, 2021
S4:E2 Light and Fluffy
After a couple months of some pretty heavy and passion filled topics, we decided we wanted to do an episode of "light and fluffy" to loosen back up a bit. It was a long legislative session here in New Mexico and we were physically and emotionally drained from the fight, so after taking a week to recoup, we are back to re-touch on how we got started. We discuss Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast beginnings, our evolution as a podcast, our passion for the Hunt it Forward initiative and more! Tune in with us as we connect back to what started it all!
March 25, 2021
S4:E1 Give it a once over!
This podcast is a little late and we hope to start next season with a podcast on the proclamation when it comes out, but we still come in under the wire for one of the Big Game draw deadlines! We give the proclamation a once over as is needed on an annual basis so you can make sure that not too much has changed. Reminder that the deadline to put in for the draw in New Mexico is fast approaching! Good luck everyone!
March 10, 2021
S3:E43 End With a Big Win!
Season 3 wrap up. We talk about a recent big win for the New Mexico hunting community when SB312 was tabled in the Senate Conservation Committee. We also run through the crazy year that was 2020, Hunt it Forward, Hunt giveaways, and personal hunting adventures. We have been blessed to do this for three seasons, and thoroughly look forward to season 4. A big thank you to all of our listeners! 
March 3, 2021
S3:E42 SB312 A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
Just like a magic trick, they get you looking at all the extra tags you will have a chance to draw and then sneak in some real dingers. This one gets a little rowdy for sure. Come check it out. 
February 11, 2021

S3:E39 Get your Game On
We got a chance to finally catch up with a fellow New Mexico Sportsman, and businessman Adrian Vigil. Adrian started out as an airbrush artist in High School and started a business doing that. A couple years ago, Adrian started an apparel company inspired by his love of the outdoors. He has some pretty wicked designs and we had a great time learning about 'Game On Outdoors' and telling great hunting stories. Check out Adrian and Game On apparel on Facebook, Instagram, and at their online store. Also find Game On apparel at select retail locations across New Mexico and elsewhere!

S3:E38 Hunt it forward 2 part deux, back in the habit
Part 2 of our post hunt podcast with Ryan and Shay after their very first public land hunt. They were both successful in taking a cow elk and we discuss patience, perseverance, and hunting until the end. Join us for the wrap up of a great hunt for these two new hunters!
January 5, 2021
S3:E37 Hunt it forward 2, the electric boogaloo
We figured ou,t after our inaugural participants drew their first public land elk tags, but were unable to make the hunt work, that we needed to change the program up a bit. So rather than taking on new participants each year, we determined to carry participants through an initial learning year culminating in a private land hunt, then follow that up with an advanced learning year culminating in a public land hunt (hopefully!). Our second year participants Ryan and Shay join us in the middle of their hunt for part 1 of this podcast where we put this new aspect of public land hunting into practice since they were fortunate enough to draw public land cow elk licenses. Ryan came out successful and we discuss public land hunting, the gutless method of breaking down an elk, and looking forward to the next day's hunt and opportunities for Shay. 
December 31, 2020
S3:E36 The Sheep Bug
Lance Bernal joins the program to discuss the bighorn sheep bug. We talk about his first bighorn hunt in Mexico Check, the Wild Sheep Foundation, and restoration of bighorn sheep in New Mexico. We reminisce about the recent hunt we were able to guide on and the experiences that make these hunts some of the most challenging you will ever do. As has been stated about sheep hunting, your first time will determine whether you catch the sheep bug or vow never to go again! 
December 19, 2020
S3:E35 Topics from the Listeners
On this week's episode, we are happy to have a topic submitted by our listeners. We get a chance to discuss how COVID has affected hunting and the hunting community here in New Mexico. We also take up a topic that we have discussed before briefly, but get more in detail about the controversial Elk Private Land Use System (EPLUS). Join us for an extremely complex subject.
December 11, 2020
S3:E34 Out of Order Ramblings
This week we are releasing a podcast that we recorded several episodes ago. Its a little out of order but that's ok. We have a cool story about a listener and we ramble on about several topics as we head down the road. Come check it out. 
December 2, 2020
S3:E33 What is Hunting
Kyle and I take a stab at defining what hunting is. At least what it is to us. 
November 20, 2020
S3:E32 E-Plus, Change is Not Always Good
We heavily advocate for hunters to unite around common causes, however sometimes you also have to just call Bulls***. This week we do just that. The NMWF and NMBHA have significant influence with the current Game Commission and key members of the New Mexico Legislature and are leading the charge to implement some drastic rule changes that would have a negative impact on hunters in New Mexico and New Mexico's wildlife. They are pushing to double the cost of a Habitat Stamp that is required to hunt, fish and trap on Federal lands. Additionally they want to discard the current E-Pus system and make New Mexico more like neighboring states. Their vision for elk hunting in our state has far reaching, unintended consequences that we believe have not been properly addressed.  
November 12, 2020
S3:E31 A Blue Collar Kind of Day
This week we got a chance to collaborate on a podcast with another local NM podcast producer and long time elk hunter Joe Giglia of Elk Bros and the Blue Collar Elk Hunting podcast. Joe has been hunting elk (mainly with a bow) for the past 39 years on public land. He has an amazing ability to close the deal and bring home meat for the freezer and has killed bulls 37 of those 39 years using the New Mexico public land draw system. He is also an awesome teacher and has built an online elk academy to share his knowledge. We talk elk hunting, draw systems, and coaching styles to boost success.
October 29, 2020
S3:E30 The New Hunting
Adult onset hunters helping create new adult onset hunters is a really cool thing. It is what Hunt It Forward is all about. Kyle and I were very fortunate to sit down with Jen Judge and Aaron Gulley to talk about their journey into the world of hunting. 
October 15, 2020

What is the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation? What does it mean? What are the tenets and how do they work? That's what Kyle and I wanted to find out. Captain Ty Jackson, of the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, sat down with us this week to discuss what exactly is in the model and what the tenets mean, as well as how they work together. Come check it out. 
May 6, 2020
S3:E14 Hunters Helping Hunters
Hunters helping hunters, is conservation. Change my mind. You can't. This week Kyle and Rodney sat down to talk about what they have been seeing on social media since the draw results came out. There are a few trends specifically, that bother them. Also, congrats to all who drew tags and heart felt sympathy for those that did not. Adios. 
April 29, 2020
S3:E13 Tammy Bowhunts!!!
I love having guests on the podcast. And this weeks guest has no shortage of GRRR. She is a great hunter and tells some great hunting stories. For the second time Kyle and I got to sit down with Tammy, of Zephyr Fitness, to talk a little hunting. This time, fortunately, she didn't work our tails off in the gym. 
April 22, 2020
S3:E12 Live!!!
Wont let us leave the house to record a podcast, fine, we'll just go live. 
April 16, 2020
S3:E11 Everybody Has a Seat At the Table
Kyle and I often preach that we do not stand together enough as a hunting collective. Too often people get selfish and forget that there are many different interests at stake. Public land hunters, private land hunters, residents and non residents. This week we sat down with one of the oft forgotten and  if not forgotten, complained about members of our hunting community, Guides and Outfitters. We had a great guest this week, Kerrie Cox Romero, Executive Director of New Mexico Council of Outfitters and Guides. We had a great discussion about several hunting topics including lots of information about some current hot topics here in NM. 
April 8, 2020
S3:E10 Speed Goat Tacos!!!
One of our favorite thing to do at Nada Grande Outdoors is to help our Hunt It Forward participant keep their hunting experience moving forward. So for this weeks podcast Kyle and Rodney sat down with Shay and Ryan to help them learn a little about the rules and regs book and complete their very first draw hunt applications. It didn't hurt that we did this over a hot plate of speed goat tacos, cooked from Ryan's pronghorn he shot last year. Delicious! 
March 25, 2020
This week Kyle and Rodney sat down with the Tristana Bickford, the Communications Director of the NMDGF. We had an awesome conversation about some of the things happening in and around the Department of Game and Fish here in New Mexico. Come check it out. 
March 18, 2020
S3:E8 I Met Her on Chicken Tinder.
Great food, great company and a great podcast. Kyle and I are joined once again by Harvest Trail Journey and the backyard_butcher to discuss subsistence living, homesteading and hunting. Come join us. 
March 11, 2020
S3:E7 How to disagree
For this weeks podcast we touch on several subjects, but one important subject is in the title, how to disagree. It is pretty important. We cant always see eye to eye, but that doesn't mean we cant still have a good two sided conversation regardless of the topic. Come check it out. 
March 4, 2020
S3:E6 Proper Field Care
Get it done right in the field. For this weeks episode of the Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast, Kyle and I sat down with Josh Jensen, of White Mountain Taxidermy. He had some great tips on field care for better meat processing and proper techniques for caping animals for a great mount. Come check it out. 
February 26, 2020
S3:E5 The Rule Book...
One thing is for sure, the rules and regs book can get confusing for new hunters. Don't think that is true? Then go grab one from Arizona or Idaho and try to figure it out. It's not easy. But not to worry, Kyle and I have sat down with the 2020-2021 book for this week's podcast. We hope it will help. 
February 19, 2020
S3:E4 Memories
"Misery fades and the memories remain"  I hear Kyle say this a lot and I believe he is right. What we do now, for ourselves, for our friends, and for our loved ones creates those memories. Without them where is our purpose? Camping trips, hunting trips, and road trips are a great way to create these memories that will last through generations. What we do now with our friends and family, in particular the little ones, will live on in memory and campfire stories for a long time. What happens if we don't take the time to make these memories while we can? Nothing, and that sounds very boring. So, come listen to this weeks podcast about, what else, Memories. 
February 13, 2020
S3:E3 A Barbary Hunt Giveaway
Earlier this year we did a Barbary hunt giveaway for a tag we were given on some private property. During the hunt we sat down with the winner, Holt Tilton, our buddy, Gear Junky Jerry, and Russell Wilson to talk about the hunt. We also discussed the importance of private land and the role it plays for wildlife habitat. 
February 5, 2020
S3:E2 Why not hunt it....
Yellowstone is a great place. Covered in amazing wildlife and plumb full or tourists. Operating costs and infrastructure are way up there. So Kyle and I have a plan. Come check it out. 
January 31, 2020
S3:E1 Its a Brand New Season...
Season two was a lot of fun. We are hoping season three will be that much better. Hunt it forward, guests, some fun ideas and some really fun trips. Last week we looked back on season two, this week we look ahead to season three. Come join us. 
January 22, 2020
S2:E47 Season Finale!!!
What a season it has been. Thanks to all our listeners who have followed us throughout the year. Thanks to all our guests on the podcast and a very special thanks to our Hunt It Forward Participants. It was a very fun season from bear attacks to hunters education. Cant wait for season three.

S2:E45 That's My Girl!
There are a lot of firsts in life, a first kiss, a first love, your first wildlife harvest. This is one of my greatest firsts of all times though, my daughters first deer. I had to choke back some tears as I walked back to the truck alone to get the pack to haul it out but the smiles that night, on the faces of Magdalena, Kyle and I will be remembered forever. What a great hunt, and great memories that will last forever. Come hear the story as told by Maggie, Kyle and Myself on this weeks Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast.

November 8, 2019
S2:E39 A Hard Hunt.
Sometimes it doesn't matter how far you walk, how high you hike or how hard you look, animals are hard to find. Especially elk, when they are not bugling. Kyle, DeeDon and myself had a hell of a hard elk hunt this year, but as usual, it was awesome. I think. 
October 31, 2019

Kyle got to shoot a big Barbary sheep and I got to blast a bunch of hogs from a helicopter. Not much else needs to be said about the awesomeness of this trip. Thank you Cher for the great fun.
September 4, 2019
S2:E33 A Difference of Opinio... Fact.
Sometimes, a person or an organization thinks it is doing something for the right reasons, but hasn't actually stepped back and looked at what is really happening. Sometimes, they are looking so hard, they cant even see how wrong they really are. Sometimes, the mouth, or the pen, just spews words without any real thought on the matter. Sometime, someone is listening that is going to stand up and say "Words that Kyle wont let me post". On this weeks episode of the Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast, Kyle and I sat down with DeeDon Bates and Ty Jackson, to discuss an article released by the New Mexico Wildlife Federation that we think is full of intentionally misleading information. It is needed for us, as outdoorsman, to make sure that our position is not being misrepresented. In this case, the NMWF, does not represent our beliefs or what we believe should be the direction of New Mexico hunting policy. Come join us as we set the record straight. 
August 21, 2019
S2:E32 80% OF THE TIME
Kyle and I sat down with the Back Country Hunters and Anglers Southwest Chapter Coordinator, Katie DeLorenzo. What we learned is we do not have to always agree on every position, but it is always good to have the conversations about topics that create controversy and division. There is a great divide between many outdoors groups from private land owners to public land hunters and everything in between. The important part is that we can sit down and have the conversations that are hard, about topics that we do not always agree upon. Nada Grande Outdoors does not agree with all the positions that the BHA takes here in New Mexico or across the country, and that is why this podcast was so much fun. Thank you Katie for joining us and thanks to our followers who take the time to like, share, rate and review our podcast. 
August 7, 2019
S2:E31 Welcome to The Harvest Trail Journey
Kyle and I had the pleasure of joining Erin and Starson Roy for a lovely home cooked meal and a podcast. Both experiences that we will never forget. For the meal, a lovely Elk Osso Bucco with bone marrow spread and for the podcast, we talked about blending the natural meat of a hunters harvest and fresh grown vegetables of a master gardeners garden. Subsistence living at its finest. Come listen in on the conversation. 
August 1, 2019
S2:E30 Are You Fit to Hunt?
Kyle and I were lucky enough to spend some time down at the Crossfit Zephyr Gym with @tammy_bowhunts. Aside from her almost killing the pair of us, she taught us a great deal about getting in shape and preparing for a hunt physically. After some good reps in the gym and a few shots, we sat down with Tammy to record this podcast. Come check it out. 
July 25, 2019

S2:E28 Pals, and maybe some field care?
On this weeks Nada Grande Outdoors Podcast, Kyle, DeeDon and I tried to talk about field care and processing of wild game. I know we laughed a lot and I'm sure there is a yo mamma joke or two. What I'm not sure about is how much field care we talked about. It sure was fun though. Come join us.
July 10, 2019
S2:E27 Average Joe
One cool thing about hunting, is anyone can do it. Sure, top of the line gear looks good, can keep you warmer and working out everyday will help you go farther and faster. But guess what, it's not a must. Time and money are not in abundance with everyone. do what you can when you can. Buy the gear you need first and then the gear you want. Most importantly remember this. It is time in the outdoors that will fill your trophy case, and the only trophy cases that carry any weight here at Nada Grande Outdoors, are the freezer and the memory bank. 
July 3, 2019
S2:E26 Predator control, NMTA
Predator control plays a big role in our world of hunting. One of the best forms of predator control is the art of trapping. One way to get into trapping is to join the New Mexico Trappers Association. The NMTA has a rendezvous every year in Alto, NM. This year Rodney was lucky enough to sit down with the NMTA President, Chance Thedford as well as multiple time guest to our podcast and board member of the NMTA, Ty Jackson. We discussed several topics including the direction and future of the NMTA as well as what trapping means to our public lands and the wildlife that resides on it.  Come join Nada Grande Outdoors and the New Mexico trappers Association on this weeks podcast. 
June 26, 2019
