Ep. 7 Pat Rauch | Shed Hunting and Combat Tuning


Pat Rauch grew up at the Roaring Judy Fish Hatchery, between Crested Butte and Gunnison.  We discuss what it was like growing up there, and how things have changed over his lifetime.  Pat’s passion is shed hunting, which is searching for deer and elk antlers for those of you who are unfamiliar with the term.  We spend a lot of time discussing shed hunting in the Gunnison valley, as well as the new rules which limit when you can search for antlers in Colorado. If you love scavenger hunts, shed hunting might be the thing for you.  Finally, we discuss ski and bike tuning- Pat has worked as a ski and bike tech for over 25 years at Crested Butte Sports, sometimes called “the home of the combat tune”.
