If you’re a dedicated mountain hunter, you can handle yourself in the backcountry. But there is one vastly underappreciated skillset that is lacking in our community: rope handling and knot skills.
If you prefer to chase sheep, goats and mule deer in the alpine then at some point in your hunting career, you’re likely to find yourself in a position where the tools and skills covered in this podcast (and article) could save your hunt, and maybe even your life.
This is a short but highly informative episode featuring a proven system and skillset for handling less than ideal situations in the backcountry.
