New Hunter Stories – Ronnell Lynn

The Modern Carnivore Podcast

On this week’s episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast Mark has a conversation with first-time hunter Ronnell Lynn and his mentor Erik Jensen.  Ronnell is a butcher at the Seward Co-Op in Minneapolis and has plenty experience with meat.  Erik helped to build and served as a board member for the Minnesota chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. He is also a passionate hunting mentor with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  While butchering Ronnell’s first deer, they discuss the hunt and the process/preparations for a backcountry hunting experience.  They share the good and the bad about hunting in the backcountry wilderness of Minnesota.   Listen in for plenty of laughs and a very unique way of asking someone about their interest in hunting.
