One of the best
I always enjoy this podcast. I came into hunting in my fifties and Randy Newberg has been a big part of my new found support of public lands.
Randy, Marcus, Michael and gang are a great resource...and good guys!
I’m in my late 60’s and the Newberg team is the best out there in the hunting and conservation media space.
Having lived in Alaska, Utah, and now Northern Idaho for the past +25 years I’ve hunted for over 50 years, but still have much to learn.
Your team has taught me much watching your YouTube channel (we don’t have a TV...or any social media...) and have found myself gravitating to your sponsors (or at least giving them a look...) when I’m in the market for hunting gear. I’ve told my wife that Sitka is the guys version of Nordstrom!
I appreciate your efforts at consolidating your ‘brand’ and I’m sure that with Marcus by your side you have ‘succession planning’ well under control.
As a retired College of Engineering Dean, if I was younger I’d come to work for you for free!
Thanks again for all that you and your team have done for hunting and conservation.

(P.S., this is the first online review I’ve ever submitted!)
I appreciate the new format,missing fish while explaining the policy process was entertaining and informative.
As a member of multiple wilderness/wildlife/access organizations,I still was unaware that they could not directly lobby for our causes.I’ll be stepping up my email campaigns in the future.
I eagerly await the new conservation model as a 501.c6?? I think is what Randy said,I’ll be an impassioned member,sign me up.
