Fred Eichler lives the dream. His ranch near Aguilar, Colorado is tucked in the game rich foothills of the Spanish Peaks holding elk, mule deer, whitetail, pronghorn, turkeys, bears and more. He lives there with his three boys and awesome wife Michele, running Full Draw Outfitters and living off the land.
The Eichler homestead features a garden, bee hives, chickens, hounds, fainting goats and as many dogs as you can count. The fruits of this labor is fresh honey, homemade jams, veggies, eggs and of course wild meat. I’d move in tomorrow if I could. Following a kickass turkey hunt I got together with Fred to talk about his two decades in the industry, the changes in archery and how that change is perceived. It was a fun one, recorded in his truck rolling through the ranch.
He also claims to be the originator of #justglassin, which I support. Enjoy.
