EatWild Podcast 012: Jody Peck - Bush Cook, Hunting Guide, and Artist - A fresh take on the guide outfitting industry (commercial hunting)
This podcast I’m joined by my friend Jody Peck for a chat about the hunting guide outfitting industry. Jody grew up in commercial hunting camps cooking, guiding and hanging out in the wilderness. She still cooks for the industry during the hunting season, but spends her offseason as a successful artist working on cool projects. Jody brings a unique perspective on the guide outfitting industry, new hunters, and life as an artist in the city of Vancouver.

There are no sheep here! After three days of hunting, we are coming to the realization that we are not in sheep habitat. All hunters will experience this at some point where they are hunting an area that is devoid of the target species. In this episode, we reflect on why there may not be sheep in the area, what are the contributing factors to the lack of sheep in the area, and why there is an abundance of other fritters around. We also talk about hunting pressure and the effect on wildlife populations and the hunting experience.
