Becoming a Bowhunter
Summary: Join host Matty as he documents his journey to becoming a bowhunter while interviewing specialists within the field to help fast track your bowhunting adventures.
Imagine doing a job and getting paid to do what you absolutely love doing? Well, that’s exactly the life Rob and Tracy from The Blonde Nomads have been able to build for themselves. What started out as a hobby of capturing the moment while out adventuring… Overtime moulded the life that the Morris family now live and enjoys. It hasn’t come without hard work, dedication and gambling the comfort provided by regular full-time work and expectations of a “regular life.” However Rob, Tracy and the kids now often enjoy family holidaying around Australia. If you’re in need of a new family holiday destination, some trusted advice on gear for 4WD, camping or caravanning or travelling with a young family… Fair chance The Blonde Nomads have the content created that you need to see. Rob being an adventurer and hunter for the majority of his life, it only makes sense that the bowhunting world drew him in. And although green to the space rob has the persistence and humility needed to do great things in bowhunting. For the rest of the insights, you’ll have to listen to the full episode.

Over the course of 5 or so hunts vary from a few days to multiple weeks… Emily was able to achieve a huge goal of getting a representable Chital deer stag down. To Emily, the trophy of this Chital stag hanging on her wall will be more than just another hunt. It’ll be an emblem of what happens when you work hard. When you hop up after being knocked down. When you have the courage to learn from your mistakes. The meat that she cherished with her loved ones… Including her dog! Ans most of all.
