    From Fabled Delta Marsh, Manitoba

    From Fabled Delta Marsh, Manitoba

    Paddling quietly into an expansive marsh, setting longlines, hunting canvasbacks, and almost stepping back in time as winter approaches, Ramsey joins Scott Stephens, Ducks Unlimited Canada, for an immersive tour of iconic Delta Marsh. The long-time friends discuss the region's history and importance, wonder aloud how one of the long-standing traditions would apply in parts of the Lower 48, and other topics.

    Who Was "Wild Goose Jack" Miner?

    Who Was "Wild Goose Jack" Miner?

    Long before the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, a former market hunter named Jack Miner was the very first person in Canada--and likely anywhere in North America--to attach metal leg bands to migratory waterfowl. And the leg bands he attached to his "flying preachers" were very unique. Known as Wild Goose Jack, many famous American celebrities were among his closest associates. But who was Jack Miner really? Have you ever even heard of him? What did he mean especially to locals in the southernmost portion of Canada and to the conservation movement in general? What's becoming of his legacy in this modern era? In candid conversations with local hunters, foundation board members and long-time staff, the Jack Miner legend is explored in-depth. Whether your lanyard carries a few highly collectible Miner bands or you've never before heard Jack Miner, here's an episode that you'll definitely want to hear and share with friends!

    Manitoba Canada Father-Son Hunting and What It's Really About

    Manitoba Canada Father-Son Hunting and What It's Really About

    "The sounds of wild geese set me free," explains Ian Kilpatrick, who's spent most of his life hunting very near his home in Manitoba. From a cozy basement room adorned with bear, deer, antlers, furs, feathers and other sentimental reminders of their lifestyle, he and son, Cole, describe memorable times, special people, by-gone retrievers. While hunting styles and technologies have changed since the father was the son's age, their then-and-now stories explain that what it is really all about remains unchanged. 
     
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Canada Goose Deep Dive

    Canada Goose Deep Dive

    From ginormous Giants to mallard-sized cacklers, Canada Goose subspecies express tremendous size and color variability. Ever wondered why? Once lumped as 11 subspecies, they're now classified as 7 Canada Goose subspecies and 4 Cackler Goose subspecies--but it was once proposed that there be 200 subspecies! Confused? Don't be. Jim Leafloor is Head of Aquatic Unit for Environment and Climate Change Canada. A recognized authority, Leafloor's spent a considerable portion of his extensive career researching Canada geese and throws a million candle-power spotlight on the otherwise murky subject of Canada goose subspecies.  We do a deep dive and you're bound to learn a thing or 3 about North America's most iconic goose.

Always interesting and well done

Another great episode with “Uncle Hank”. Ramsey, you need to get Hanks son Matt on to talk about soloing the Mississippi. There some great stories he has about his time on the river.

Swamp Witch - favorite episode so far

The Swamp Witch episode is my favorite episode so far. Filled with life advice, culture, wisdom and joy. Caught me by surprise. Alison seems like a person anyone from any walk of life would benefit from meeting.

Deuce-4 ,

Must listen for duck hunters

Ramsey is the authority on waterfowl culture
