Love this show!!! Great group of outdoorsmen. I’ve met Alex a few time, he’s an awesome guy. He knows his stuff when it comes to hunting. And he can call turkeys like no other. My name is Jeremy Dean, and you can count me in as a loyal fan. I always bought the Hunters Specialties videos to hear you do some amazing calling.
