    After all but giving up on my 2019-20 deer hunting season, I had my best 3 days of hunting ever, including my first public land Florida buck and another buck on a hang and hunt with my oldest daughter.

From the Florida panhandle

I happened upon your podcast a couple weeks ago and have been listening almost everyday to get caught up. I’m originally from south Florida so I really enjoy the stories from down that way. I now live in the Florida panhandle and hunt public land almost exclusively. You have a lot of great topics and guests, keep up the good work.
