Cody Rich. Cody is an Oregon based hunter and host of The Rich Outdoors Podcast. For Cody, the adventure, pushing the limits, discovering the unknown, and becoming the best he can be is what it's all about and through his podcast he's able to share what hunting is and what it means to be a hunter. Now at 100 episodes, The Rich Outdoors has been host to some of the biggest names in hunting, providing both experienced and inexperienced hunters with an amazing resource to learn from the best and hear some great stories from those that have dedicated their life to the sport.
Ryan Callaghan. Born and raised in Montana, Ryan grew up fishing and hunting as much of the state as possible. He fell into guiding naturally and has been able to see some amazing places because of it. In 2011, Ryan traded in his truck bed for an apartment; his seasonal life for a spot with First Lite in Ketchum, Idaho. Working as the marketing manager at First Lite has been incredibly gratifying. He gets to exercise his brain, work on filling his freezer and still guides a trip or two.
