Huntavore - Chasing Public with Vincent Batiata and Audrey Hoag

Show Notes

On this Episode of Huntavore, Nick is joined by Vincent Batiata and Audrey Hoag, of Chasing Public. Together, they share their passion and motivation for the “Chase”. Go deep in a discussion about taking a life, and share some great stories about mishaps that turned into adventures. All this, and along with some Wild Game talk, on this episode of Huntavore. Nick is joined by Vincent Batiata and Audrey Hoag of Chasing Public, a budding Instagram blog and YouTube channel documenting their pursuits. Michigan natives that transplanted down to Tennessee, Vincent and Audrey are no strangers to finding and scouting public hunting grounds and taking on the challenge of out-of-state hunts. Living in an apartment in a state away from family forces you to be resourceful and think on your feet. However the hardship has given way to loving the process and each hurdle, mishap, or challenge makes the venison taste sweeter. While Vincent has the background in hunting, Audrey has joined along with him and taken on the challenge of learning this whole hunting style. Becoming skilled with a bow, and building form, Audrey has already had several encounters and took a beautiful buck last year. What was very noticeable from these two is that they challenge themselves to “earn” the right to take the animal’s life. Without having some sort of struggle on their end, it doesn’t feel right. I find that a very noble approach. Digging into their venison preparation, being able to settle down some roots, both are open to the idea of butchering their own deer. Going to processors out of necessity and having uneasy feelings about what they were getting back.  While on a bit of a life break, transitioning back to Michigan, Vincent and Audrey will be creating more content to follow along with. Maybe because they are from my home, but I truly am excited to follow along on their journey. They don't shy away from what's hard, they take on intimidating challenges all for the reason to better themselves and continue to chase what they love.
