The Best Bowhunting and Archery Podcasts

UPDATE: I now co-host a podcast with my friend, Steve Speck, from Exo Mountain Gear.  Be sure you check out The Hunt Backcountry Podcast!

If you, like me, are looking to learn more about archery and bowhunting, then I highly recommend that you consider subscribing to what we will be discussing today – The Best Bowhunting and Archery Podcasts.

Why Podcasts?

Podcasts have become my favorite, most effective method of learning about any topic. Not only are they free, but they can be consumed nearly anywhere, at any time, and on any pace. I often struggle to find the time (and concentration) to sit down and read, but with podcasts I can consume new information while I’m driving, exercising, or even doing chores around the house. Best of all, I don’t have to go searching for new content – it is automatically delivered to me. (Learn more about how podcasts work at Apple’s Podcast FAQ.)

Which Podcasts?

I wouldn’t have written this article a few months ago. There was, at that time, a lack of quality podcasts that focused on bowhunting and archery. In fact, as a humble attempt to fill that void, I considered starting a podcast myself. Thankfully, there are now 3 great podcasts that are well worth your time…

Nock On

The Nock On Podcast is hosted by professional archer, hunter, and the host of the Nock On TV show – John Dudley.  John’s vision for this podcast is to unite the two, often separate worlds, of target archery and bowhunting.  The first few episodes have already proven to be a treasure chest of valuable information for any archer (target or hunter) that wants to take their game to the next level.  I just recently finished listening to Episode 3, in which John interview the one-and-only, Randy Ulmer – amazing stuff!  If you only subscribe to one podcast, make it this one!

Bow Junky

Bow Junky is quickly becoming the destination source for information throughout the archery industry.  The podcast is a newer addition to Bow Junky’s offerings, but it’s been one of the most valuable things that they’ve done to date.  The Bow Junky podcast is often recorded on location at archery tournaments around the country, and in addition to providing the scores and stories about the tournament, the podcast features candid interviews with all types of archers.  Even if you’re not a target archery junky, there is still plenty of good information and inspiration to be found in the Bow Junky podcast.

Petersen’s Bowhunting Radio

Petersen’s Bowhunting Radio is hosted by the Editor of Petersen’s Bowhunting Magazine, Christian Berg.  This podcast excels in providing a variety of content, while always remaining relevant to bowhunters.  On one episode you might be listening to an in-depth, incredibly detailed discussion on arrow technology, while on the next episode you might enjoy a laid back, “hunting camp style” interview with a bowhunting personality.  New episodes aren’t posted as frequently as other podcasts, but they are always worth waiting for!

Back In Time

If you’re looking for more quality podcasts, considering subscribing to Bowcast and Bow Dudes. Neither podcast is actively publishing new episodes, but both podcasts have older shows that are worth listening to.

    I absolutely love Bow Junky and Nock on. The Bowdudes were also good and contain a lot of info. Hopefully they will pick up soon. I was actually headed to your website to email you about Nock On’s new podcast (it fits what you are doing in your articles so perfectly), but it appears you are a step ahead of me. Hope everyone gives them a try, and heads over to the Bowjunky website as well as they work very hard to do what they do. Totally worth it. As always thank you Mark! Great job.

      Yeah, I had to laugh when I listened to the 2nd episode of Nock On and they discussed sight vs pin focus; it re-inforced what I was saying with the article that I had just published the day prior. Dudely is a wealth of info, and it’s a real treat to be able to learn from someone with his history and credibility.

    Great post. I have been looking for whitetail podcasts, but they were so hard to find! Thanks so much… this will make the daily commute much more enjoyable in the off season!

    • SoleAdventure

      These podcasts are a God-send for my commute, too!

    I don’t have a smart phone or anything like that, but I do have a computer. Is there any way I can view this via computer?
