Great Resource for New Hunters!

As a relatively new hunter who moved to BC this past year, finding this podcast has been a godsend! The guys have tons of great info to share, and there is something useful in every podcast. It’s particularly cool to hear them interview some of the big names in hunting from a BC perspective.

Keep up the awesome work!

Finding this podcast was like Christmas.

I’m 35 and never grew up around the hunting crowd but have always been interested in it. Listening to these guys has helped me turn off all the excess information and just take it one step at a time. Also nice to hear from some good old Canadians fellas who are just hanging, talking shop and drinking some mighty fine ales.

Excellent podcast, with loads of info! I’m 32 and trying to break into the hunting world and have been binge watching and collecting info. Cannot be more happy to have found this and would recommend to anyone new and experienced!
