In today’s social media driven world, it’s easy to follow someone online and think they have it all together as a hunter. Unfortunately, our culture today has urged us to only post our successes online, which is very deceiving and can be discouraging for some, especially new hunters.

My guest today, Mark Kenyon, has been someone that I’ve enjoyed following on social media for many years because he doesn’t just post about his successes as a hunter but also posts about the journey of growing and learning as a hunter.

In today’s podcast episode we talk about many important hunting tips for new hunters, including Tips for finding a place to hunt, Mark’s system for getting hunting access on private land, the next steps you should take as a hunter once you get hunting access, what is shed hunting and why do hunters do it, Mark’s best shed hunting tips and tactics, and early season deer scouting.
