This week on the Primitive Pursuit Podcast, we were fortunate enough to get on the phone with Chad Graham to talk about his venture making custom Wudaraz and beautifully crafted spliced fletchings. Chad is a big believer in FOC… Fir Or Cedar! We discuss an array of topics around bowhunting to include shoots, travel, and bowfishing.

We have started a Go-Fund-Me for our cancer fighting brother Chris Sekol, a traditional bowhunter, avid outdoorsman, and Backcountry Hunters and Anglers supporter. Chris is currently battling stage 4 cancer. He has been in and out of the operating room, and staying strong. Please help us by donating to Chris in order to cover medical expenses and other things life will be throwing at him as he continues the fight. Every bit helps! ALL proceeds will go to Chris and his family. This guy is one of the strongest, baddest dudes we have ever met. He WILL beat this! To stay in the loop with Chris, follow him at @endless_mountain_archer on Instagram.

This week we dabble outside of the archery community to talk about an effective Japanese fly fishing technique with Daniel Galhardo, visionary and founder of Tenkara USA. Fishing is a great skill for anyone to have in the backcountry or out in the wild. Not only is it entertaining and moral boosting, but it can provide sustenance as well. We discuss these compact lightweight rods, proper techniques and applications, and the learning curve associated.
