First listen & GREAT

After hearing Three Rivers Land Trust present to our Rocky River Trout Unlimited group, I subscribed to the podcast. I am not a duck hunter, but the new 2021 episode was incredible! I will be bringing back episodes!! Nice story and LOVE the HubHub idea! I’d have that as a contact for sure! Don’t forget...camping trailers have axles like boat trailers do, and with Covid record numbers of people are camping now

One of best outdoor podcasts!

Listened to the latest podcast and though it was entertaining, I would be amiss if I didn’t mention Cody’s belt buckle. I get it from a reliable source that he has retired that buckle for “impressing the ladies” purposes. It now serves as a conversation starter for the guys.

Keeping you informed- Anonymous
