EP:177 | Tales of a Helicopter Biologist and Wrangler

By: Mossy Oak GameKeeper


This week we have a really interesting and hardcore gamekeeper named Andy Orlando, whose profession is “helicopter wrangler.” Andy works for a private firm contracted by various agencies to safely and ethically capture live animals such as pronghorns, elk, big horn sheep, mule deer, bears, and others via helicopter. From there he bails out of the chopper and performs whatever analysis is needed to fulfill the contract. He recently celebrated his 10,000th successful catch-and-release. Andy talks business and shares his methods and some crazy stories, but also hits on the pursuit of his US turkey slam to boot!  You’ll love this one. Listen, Learn, and Enjoy!
