Stories From The Season: Why Pack Burros Are Awesome

Stories From The Season: Why Pack Burros Are Awesome

Backcountry Rookies  / 

Posted on December 01, 2020

Show Notes

This week on the Stories From The Season Series Chad talks to Shane Weigand. We change things up a bit this week and talk about hunting with pack animals, burros more specifically. Shane uses two burros when he hunts and this year he was stuck in a sticky situation when the New Mexico weather took a nasty turn on them mid hunt. Shane talks about handling and caring for the burros as well as how useful they are. We cover a lot of topics on this show, but it doesn’t stop at hunting. Shane is also a pack burro racer. Yep I said racer. He explains the origins of pack burro racing and how he got involved with the sport. It sounds super fun to me. I may have to borrow a burro for a run someday. You will enjoy this show

Stories From The Season was created as a way for us to let our friends share their hunting stories. I love to listen to great hunting stories to get an idea of the experience, but I think there is a lot of great opportunities to learn for other success or failure. When you hear a person talk about a stalk or how they achieved success you can apply the same techniques to your hunting strategies. Enjoy the Series!
