2023 Recap

This episode Tigger & BEC dig into the BEST OF stories shared during this last year. Including how BEC on several pheasant hunting trips with Tigger, family and friends was the only member to be skunked each time. It’s a memory that is one now filled with giggles of a nephew shouting, “How did you MISS HIM?!” too Tigger’s dad getting BEC a gift of a “rubber rooster” so that she truly wasn’t “Skunked”. That’s what the outdoors is all about. Enjoying one another’s company and remembering the funny times!

Tigger interviews Chris (aka Cheech) Holznagel from Washburn, North Dakota on how he partook in a domestic Buffalo hunt in Nebraska. He called his dad, as we all know making memories with those we love, and the two headed south. The Holznagels packed their gear and headed to Antler J Outfitting

The hunt was bittersweet as the rifle Holznagel used was that of a recently deceased  Uncle. He took down a cow buffalo using a Remington 700 chambered in a 30-06. A story with twists, turns, and a memorable extraordinary hunt shared with his father.

  • A two-thumbs up was given to this outfitter. They treated this hunter right, and fit the hunt to the guest. Check them out on Social Media as they offer a variety of hunts from domestic buffalo to turkey to deer and more.


While BEC was on one of her recent “Catch BEC If You Can” ( #catchBECifyoucan ) adventures, her being a PRCA Pro Rodeo Music Director takes her to some great rodeos which leads to meeting amazing individuals paving the way in the rodeo world. This trip was no different.

Sage Newman, A PRCA World Saddle Bronc Leader on the road prior to making his 3rd Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) appearance, took time to visit with BEC (aka Rebecca Wanner). We learn there is more to this cowboy than riding broncs and making 8-second rides that score big. 

Sage Newman hails from Melstone, Montana where he grew up on his family’s ranch. When not chasing the next rodeo, this man is found back on the ranch and enjoying the outdoors. He is a humble, genuine man that always has a smile. BEC caught up with Sage after another outstanding performance and in chatting learned what he does when not rodeoing or ranching. He is enjoying the outdoors. Taking advantage of where the road leads such as getting to fish while saddle bronc riding in Alaska to looking forward to archery season now back in Montana. Hunting and fishing, enjoying the backcountry with family and friends keeps Sage Newman revived and focused for when it’s time ‘To Ride.’ Great interview that leaves one proud and happy to know there are people like us doing great things, setting examples for the younger generation. He graciously took time to hang too with BEC’s nephew Hank Wanner and made sure all of his fellow rodeo pals, fellow PRCA saddle bronc riders signed Hank’s cowboy hat as well as shook his hand. 

Thank you Sage Newman for what you are doing by setting a good example, being a role model and we here at The Bend Show will definitely be cheering loud for you wherever the road may lead and we cheered EXTRA LOUD when you competed in December in Vegas at the 2023 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (The NFR!) finishing 2nd in the World.
