Clint Walker, firearms aficionado and fellow Montanan, joins Sam on The Wild Initiative to discuss selecting your ideal hunting rifle. Clint goes over the importance of getting a “smart choice” rifle, which means choosing one that will get the job done, but also has ammo available, especially during times of scarcity. Clint talks about his time shooting in precision long-distance tournaments with the rifles he built. He then goes into his first hunting experience and how, even though he’s great at target shooting, it doesn’t always translate into a perfect shot on an animal. After his realization that he had no clue how to dress an animal, Clint turned to YouTube and the numerous helpful how-to videos available. He says you have to get out of your comfort zone and try new things to feel a rush you’ve never experienced. Later on Sam and Clint discuss long distance shooting on animals when you have so many things to factor in and how it’s crucial to be comfortable with your rifle or any weapon and the shot you plan to make.
