Show Notes

In this episode, recorded at the Houndsman XP/Freedom Hunters Extreme Hound Adventure headquarters at the Thunderbird Lodge on the Navajo Nation in northeastern Arizona, Chris and Steve are joined by Extreme Hound Adventure recipient Tanner Babb and by our guide Calvin Redhouse to discuss the week’s hunt for bobcats and mountain lions with hounds. The energetic discussion revolves around the five-day hunt engineered and carried out by Redhouse and his Rez Hounds pack of lion dogs.

Early in 2019, Houndsman XP partnered with Freedom Hunters, a non-profit organization, to provide an all-expense paid mountain lion hunt for a veteran or Gold Star family member. Freedom Hunters has conducted outdoor adventures for veterans or veteran families since its inception. Chris and Steve are veterans and after meeting with Freedom Hunter’s CEO Anthony Pace, decided upon the project which proved to be a very rewarding choice. The event was held with the help and support of several major vendors in the outdoor industry and was conducted during the third week of January of 2020 on the Navajo Nation.

Tanner proved to be an excellent choice for the hunt. Fully outfitted by the many sponsors in a full complement of hunting gear, from his boots to the rifle he would ultimately use to harvest his cat, Tanner came to the mountain fully prepared. He performed admirably, both physically and mentally, in taking on the rigors of the terrain and the cunningness of those illusive Navajo Nation cats. Listeners will hear the entire story in this episode, not only from Tanner’s perspective but also from the event’s planners and the guide himself.
