This is the first ever live podcast event Shoot'n The Bull has recorded. We recorded this episode at the 2018 BHA Rendezvous in front of a live audience. Listen as Corey Jacobsen, Tyler Crockett and Donnie Drake share their colorful story of how Tyler killed 2 bulls in one day. As if one isn't tough enough! Their season didn't stop with filling their freezers full of delicious elk meat. They decided to embark on a wolf hunt and film and document the entire process. Tune in as the guys break down what it took to find success and what they leaned throughout the process. Kick back and enjoy the laughs and entertainment, even Corey Jacobsen cant be totally serious all the time! Cheers!
Following our last podcast with Chris Parish on lead ammunition and the toll it is taking on our Peregrine Falcon, we wanted to learn more about non-lead ammunition and its performance. We found Russell Kuhlman, a new hire at BHA. Russell is currently the California and Nevada Chapter Coordinator. He has quite an extensive background in firearms and ammunition and even has a degree in Wildlife Biology. Prior to his newly acquired position with BHA, he was the California Non-lead Outreach Coordinator. There he shot and tested the performance of various lead and non-lead ammunition into ballistic gel and jugs of water. He shot everything from pistol, rifle, shotgun and even muzzleloader ammunition. He was also a Skeet and Trap Coordinator at a local gun range. In this episode Russell shares his research and spreads a wealth of knowledge on how different non-lead ammunition types perform. It was shocking to find out just how well some of these no-lead ammo's perform at long ranges! So if your curious on how this no-lead ammo performs and where you can get your hands on it, give this episode a listen!
Here is a website Russell created awhile back on how non-lead performs at long range (400 yards).
Here is a Non-lead ammo company he refers to in the show

Chris Parish is a wildlife biologist and the Director of Global Conservation for The Peregrine Fund. Chris is a mountain of a man, ex college football player and a redneck. You could say he's our people! In this episode we learn a lot about Chris. From college football to currently earning his phd. He comes to the podcast with a wealth of knowledge regarding Falconry, The Peregrine Fund and lead ammunition. Chris isn't a pushy guy, nor is he trying to promote an agenda. He simply brings facts and scientific information to the table for others to digest and form their own opinions. We talk about the Peregrine Falcon and how our lead ammunition is taking a toll on them. The research is astounding. It was definitely an eye opener for us. It makes us think a little deeper into the organic meat we harvest for ourselves and our families. We ask that you listen to this episode with an open mind and form your own conclusions as we have. As educational as this episode is, it definitely fits the Shoot'n The Bull mold. Enjoy the scientific facts and raw entertainment! Cheers!
