John Barklow is the Big Game Product Manager for Sitka, a hunting brand based in Bozeman, Montana.
Prior to his current profession, he served for 26 years in the United States Navy as a Diver. We met in 1997, when I was a punk new guy, and he was running the dive locker for SEAL Team Five. His background and experience is diverse…In addition to classical dive training, he is a wealth of knowledge in climbing, skiing, back country travel, snow safety, and survival, to mention a few. For 15 years he worked at, and lead the Kodiak training facility where all SEAL candidates now go for their cold weather and survival training.
To add icing to the cake, he has been a bow hunter for 30 years, and we recorded this podcast at the end of an epic bow hunt for Axis deer on Lanai, Hawaii.
