 Rob's archery addiction takes him all around the world to countries you may have never heard of in pursuit of species you may have never heard of. Bowhunting aside, international travel comes with its own set of challenges. From sitting it airports in 3rd world countries, bouncing around in the back of a 1960's Russian Jeep in the Caucuses Mountains, to exploring the streets of Skopje, Macedonia, Rob gives us his recommended gear list for international travel.

 

 

4 ITEMS THAT ROB NEVER LEAVES THE HOUSE WITHOUT:

  1. A Good pair noise canceling headphones - Sit through one 18 hour flight next to a noisy 12-year old and you'll be happy you brought them.
  2. A Neck Pillow - A bouncy 12-hour flight into Baku, Azerbaijan isn't that enjoyable - might as well try to sleep through it.
  3. A Really Good Camera - Being able to capture the whole experience, both during the hunt, and the adventure to and from is why Rob does what he does.
  4. A Celebratory Davidoff Cigar - Sometimes the Davidoffs come out to celebrate a successful harvest of the animal, sometimes it's just to celebrate not falling off a 3,000' cliff in the Southern Alps of New Zealand.
