This Week On HSCF’s “Hunting Matters” Radio & Podcast: Exo Mtn Gear Brand Manager Mark Huelsing Talks About Hauling Packs & Frames, Western Big Game, His Annual “Death Hike” – And further!

The Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF) and “Hunting Matters” welcome Mark Huelsing, brand manager for backcountry hunting gear manufacturer Exo Mtn Gear and host of the Hunt Backcountry podcast. Mark met Exo Mtn Gear co-founder Steve Speck through the hunting industry over 10 years ago. In the early days of Exo, Steve approached Mark for help with the technical aspects of getting the online part of the business up and running. Over the years, Mark became involved in more areas of the business, eventually leaving his job in technology to invest his time and energy entirely in Exo. These days, Mark manages marketing, the podcast, partnerships, customer service, and pretty much anything else he sees online that comes from Exo.

Exo Mtn Gear’s mission is to build the best backcountry hunting pack systems available, provide the best service possible, and do it all right here in the USA.
