Those three words sum up what Backcountry and Barbells is all about.  Show hosts, Jarmey and Joe, started swamping trade secrets from their areas of expertise and came to find they had a lot to offer one another.  The tips and tricks they swapped, products they test and tried, and advice they offered one another always seemed helpful.  With those thoughts in mind they decided to make their conversations public, to learn from the best in both hunting and training, and share what they believe to be the best way to TRAIN, HUNT, and LIVE life to the fullest.
