Introducing Janis Putelis’ new hunting show!

I have had many amazing experiences in the field. From my early days as a moose guide to my years traveling the world with Steven Rinella, I have been fortunate to hunt and fish in some of the most incredible places on the planet.

Still, I believe that hunting requires a lifelong obsession with learning. “On the Hunt” is dedicated to my love of being both the mentor and the mentee. In some episodes, I take a new hunter out into the field to show him the ropes. Other times I bring out experienced hunters, like my friend Rue Mapp, and try to show them something new.

But I still have a lot to learn. That’s why some of these episodes will also take me places where I’m not an expert, which I rarely am, and allow me to master new skills. In this season alone, I learn moose singing from Jason Phelps, lion biology and management from Bart George, and bear hunting from Clay Newcomb.

I’ll also introduce you to people who have mentored me in the past, like my friend and moose guide, Ethan Kohn, and my turkey hunting mentor, James Miller. These two have impacted my hunting style and life in general, and I can’t wait to get them involved in the fun.

Whether teaching or learning, I always try to add a touch of adventure to these episodes. Tune in every Tuesday at 4pm MST from May 3 to June 7 and let me know what you think in the comments. I will be there to answer as many questions as I can.
