East Meets West Hunt

East Meets West Hunt


The East Meets West Hunt Podcast is your resource for all things adventure hunting. This podcast is geared towards the hunter that wants more out of the hunt than just the kill. It’s for the hunter that loves planning and preparing for the hunt, just as much as the hunt. We will talk to hunters from all over the United States and Canada to provide the EMW community with useful knowledge and motivation to continue to live their life through a series of adventures that help you in all aspects of your life.

On this episode of the East Meets West Hunt podcast, Beau Martonik is joined by Zach Ferenbaugh of The Hunting Public. Zach is not only a successful deer hunter across the country, but his attitude is infectious for those around him. He shares his stories and lessons learned hunting public land in all areas of the country at all times of the year. We discuss hunting from the ground, hunting the Appalachian region, understanding how to read sign in different areas, breaking down a new area, scouting in-season, identifying different food sources and more!
