An expert at hand to hand combat with both knives and firearms, Bill is also a Christian father and husband, serves in his local church, and invests his time training boys and men.

    Men Are Made to be Protectors

    Men Are Made to be Protectors

    In this episode, hosts Dan Berkholder and Eric Conn talk about why men are responsible for the protection of their family and other innocents. From weapons to personal defense, men are made to defend the perimeter and shed blood for the sake of their family, community, and country. We'll examine the historical understandings of defense of life and talk about why some Christians today are mistakenly pacifists.

    Men Are Made for Provision

    Men Are Made for Provision

    In this episode, Dan Berkholder talks about how and why men are to be providers. There’s a primal instinct for men to provide food, protection, and shelter for their people. A great way to harness these skills today is by sharpening them in the wilderness.

    Why Men Need to Be Sages

    Why Men Need to Be Sages

    What is a sage? It's a man who is mature in wisdom, which is a skill for navigating well through a complex world. He knows how to sharpen an arrow, stalk an elk, run a small business, cultivate a strong household, and so much more.

    In this episode, Eric Conn and Dan Berkholder talk about how men can become sages, and why it's important. So many of our wilderness heroes were deep, thoughtful, well-read men, something we aspire to be today.

    Show Notes: 
    Carry A Big Stick, by George Grant (Teddy Roosevelt biography). Endurance, Alfred Lansing (Shackleton's antarctic voyage). Future Men, Doug Wilson (on raising sons). My friend Joseph von Benedikt has a great podcast (Backcountry Hunting Podcast)

Fearless and steadfast

Men are to be protectors, sheepdogs of sorts. The theology behind this is missing from many pulpits today. So thankful for these men who are pointing out a weakness in today’s society.

Fantastic podcast

This is a great podcast from a couple of down to earth and Godly men. It’s providing a lot of practical advice and philosophical wisdom. Listen and go hunting/hiking/fishing/scouting.

Good Stuff

Good stuff. As the wife of a hunter (who doesn’t come from a hunting family) I can pick up some helpful tidbits. I’m just wondering when the Wilderness Warrior Wives podcast will begin?
