Great podcast guy

Unfortunately I just discovered your podcast this week but with traveling great distances to get to and from work I have already listen to roughly a dozen episodes. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening as a person that enjoys the management side as much as the hunting part. As a owner of 258 acres in central pa which is largely covered in reclaimed coal mine land I was wondering if you have any podcast episodes that would relate to my land or any recommendations of anyone for advise with that type of land
Keep up the great work guys

Something learned every week.....

I’ve hunted for 55 years, and managed land for deer for 20 years, and every week I learned something from you guys. Thanks!

Great whitetail podcast

I’ve been hunting my whole life but never put too much thought into our deer habitat. I’m learning a ton and can’t wait to start implementing the great advice heard here.
