This is one of four short stories told by Bear Hunting Magazine editor Clay Newcomb at the Backcountry Hunters & Anglers Live Storytelling Event in Springfield Missouri. This is a story of when Clay and his son lost their mule and had to go a bar to try to locate the mule. When he went into the bar, much to his surprise, a patron of the bar knew Clay's mother and the story unfolds from there! We'll be releasing the other three stories soon!

            A father-and-son adventure in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas using a mule to raccoon hunt with hounds. Swollen creeks, big rocks, and jumping logs, this video has a lot heart. Using hounds to tree coons is culturally iconic method for gathering fur and controlling turkey nest predators.

            Using trained mules for squirrel hunting is a great tradition in the Ozarks of Arkansas and it's a valuable transportation tool when hunting these rugged mountains. Clay Newcomb of Bear Hunting Magazine goes along with Trae Autry and Michael Lanier to hunt with Treeing Feists on public land. After they kill a few squirrels they fry the squirrels in bear oil (bear grease) after battering them in a buttermilk/flour batter. You'll see Clay shoot off his mule, Izzie, and lots of other cool stuff. This video shows the joys, camaraderie and fun of hunting. Also, the great tasting meat acquired from a game animal that many overlook. Hunting with dogs while on equine animals, be it horses or mules, is a classic way to hunt! You'll enjoy this video about squirrel hunting on mules in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. 

            Billy Molls is a renowned guide, bear hunter, author and videographer who has guided in Alaska for over 19 years (Billy Molls Adventures). Be sure to check out Billy's Youtube Channel. This film, captured by Billy, is an intimate and unique look into brown bear hunting in Alaska. You'll feel like you're there with them as the peninsula wind blows, and as they glass and stalk giant brown bears. Billy's hunter takes a GIANT 9-foot 11-inch bear on day nine of this incredible adventure. Harvesting older mature males brown bears is key for conservation. Taking out animals that have already contributed to the gene pool is solid science. Billy is a prime example of hunter who intimately knows his quarry, has devoted his life to understanding them, and gives them his ultimate respect throughout the hunt. Hunters are the good guys who love wildlife and want to see them thrive. The efforts of conservation efforts of hunters over the past 100 years is what saved North American wildlife.
