MDF Podcast – Talking Mule Deer with Steve Belinda and Jodi Stemler
S2 E22 – Identical Draw
Today on Talking Mule Deer we visit with Thomas and Nathan Krick, identical twins from Lincoln, Nebraska who produce an online outdoor television program known as Identical Draw. Their first season was featured on Carbon TV and the second season is available on Bear Archery’s Youtube Channel. The brothers grew up hunting and learned film production through Heartland Bowhunter’s film school. As outdoorsmen and mountaineers in their early 20s, the duo is focused on social media and other online platforms as a way to target younger hunters offering techniques for do-it-yourself, backcountry public land hunts. We hear a bit about their first mule deer hunts in the sandhills of Nebraska as well as last year’s intense mountain mule deer hunt in Idaho. Nate and Thomas tell us about their efforts to integrate a conservation message into their episodes, this year they began working with the Mule Deer Foundation to provide more detailed information about our organization’s work.
The Mule Deer Foundation is the only conservation group in North America dedicated to restoring, improving and protecting mule deer and black-tailed deer and their habitat, with a focus on science and program efficiency. MDF is a strong voice for hunters in access, wildlife management and conservation policy issues. MDF acknowledges regulated hunting as a viable management component and is committed to recruitment and retention of youth into the shooting sports and conservation.
