I'm A Bison Not A Buffalo ,

The three letter agency profile picture.

As another person who wears coyote brown leather boots and works for a three letter agency, the guy with a personal photograph of him and his brown bear kill sure put a lot of effort to get that “personal” photograph on the TS system. Not that it’s impossible, but was it correctly done? And to Cal’s point, yes, what a waste of time to do so and care about. Maybe get someone in the position who actually does the job as opposed to a person spending hours getting a social media shot on the government’s classified networks to own the libs.

Come for the podcast stay for trivia!

Great conservation information! Looking forward to getting a Sandhill season in MI too.

Used to be good……

I love the variety of guests and they often have a lot of interesting info to share. Unfortunately I find myself deleting them before the end due to Steve’s corrections, tangents, and overall disruptions. I didn’t realize how much better it was until I listened to the trivia game with the Weatherby’s. No Steve, it was so much more enjoyable without all the arguing about hints, no hints, grammar, phrasing, etc….
So after that one, the next trivia game, which wasn’t in order was the one with the question about Christopher McCandless. I got so tired of Steve’s whining I couldn’t finish the podcast and deleted it, I then unsubscribed as I start cringing most of the time when he speaks now. He is seldom productive on the podcasts anymore. I’ll miss the great information available from the guests, I won’t miss Steve.
