Land of the Free 2.0 With Born and Raised

As Land of the Free 2.0 is released, the Born and Raised team continues to prove they can roll out quality, compelling content. Here’s a look at their latest series.

The team at Born and Raised Outdoors gets after it. We’re always excited to work with the group of four “brothers”—Trent Fisher, Treavor Fisher, Steve Howard and Kody Kellom. They’ve been making quality “over the shoulder” bowhunting content since 2007, and continue to carry on their vision of capturing the reality of bowhunting and the rollercoaster of emotions all hunters experience.

“My best memory would have to be all the great people that I got to meet,” shares Trent Fisher. “I have learned that you only get so many Septembers in your lifetime—it’s what you do with them that really matters. I have been blessed to spend time in the woods with a lot of different people and for that I’m grateful!”

Working on the premise of “Entertain. Inspire. Educate.” Born and Raised is currently releasing the second year of their ambitious series Land of the Free. Here’s a look at Land of the Free 2.0—and a review of the first year as well.

Land of the Free 2.0

– Five Hunts, Five States, 45 Days of Bowhunting
– Oregon, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho
– The mission: to showcase public lands and issues surrounding land transfers across the Western U.S.

And in case the winter doldrums are really settling in, here’s a look at Land of the Free 1.0—the first season of the series—with five hunts in five states in 50 days.

The Born & Raised team relies on onX to ensure they can make the most of their hectic schedule.

Trent notes, “There wasn’t a day during this whole last elk season that I didn’t look at my phone and believe me, I wasn’t in service very often. This year I never even took my Garmin GPS with me. I made sure to download maps ahead of time and all I used was my phone. I didn’t need to bring any extra batteries cause I was on airplane mode all of the time. The ‘share waypoint’ feature was also a big help when your hunting with as big of a group we have. We can simply just text a waypoint of where we’re going to be and not have to worry about giving exact directions.”
