    S3, E1: Crossbows and Men Playing Women's Sports

    S3, E1: Crossbows and Men Playing Women's Sports

    Ben Smith talks with Matt Langford and Hunter McCool.

    Season 3 kicks off with plenty of controversy. We begin with the Mississippi Governor's Election before turning to things that really matter. Hunter traded in his bow for the extreme opposite, a long range rifle, and now desires to kill deer from 1000 yards. Matt talks the pains of wounding a good buck during archery season. Then, the crossbow debate. Likened to men playing women's sports, the group all agree that crossbows should not be used unless you're a certain age, or have a disability.

    S3, E2: Puntin 'n Huntin

    Ben Smith talks with Hunter McCool, Matt Langford, and Logan Cooke.

    Jacksonville Jaguars punter, Logan Cooke, joins us for this episode. The former Mississippi State standout discusses his time in the NFL and hunting/fishing while juggling being a parent. The group talks about the Jaguars (Ben's favorite team), currently in first place in the AFC South before diving into some college football talks regarding NIL. Logan shares some stories about his time at MSU before Hunter goes completely off the rails with quite possibly the most outlandish question ever asked on the show! Also covered on the show is Matt's experience with his kids during the Mississippi Youth season.

    Ben Smith talks with Matt Langford, Luke Williams, and Chris Hardy

    Coming to you from Float Road Hunting Club in the Mississippi Delta, it's duck season. Float Road Club has been around for a loooong time as one of the premiere duck camps in Mississippi. While up for a hunt, we were joined by members Luke Williams and Chris Hardy. During the show the group discusses the current state of ducks in Mississippi as well as our favorite and least favorite things to hunt. Matt talks about a buck that he shot with his bow that Ben Ward of the Mississippi Blood Trailing Network came to help with. Luke shares his waterfowl experiences from across the country and Chris talks about rut hunts in the Midwest.

    S3, E4: Recapping 2023

    S3, E4: Recapping 2023

    Ben Smith talks with Matt Langford and Hunter McCool

    In the first episode of 2024, the guys talk about the good and bad from 2023. From Hunter welcoming a newborn into the world, Matt's son killing a big buck, and Ben joining the duck hunting world, 2023 was definitely more good than bad.

    The show does open with some somber material, though. Far too many tragic "hunting accidents" have happened this season and the group discusses ways to prevent them from happening, as well as repercussions that should be assessed to those who neglect the responsibilities of using firearms.

    S3, E5: Treestand Safety

    S3, E5: Treestand Safety

    Ben Smith talks with Matt Langford, Heath Trussell, and John Louk

    Each year there are hundreds of injuries due to treestand incidents. We sat down with Executive Director of the Treestand Manufacturers Association, John Louk to discuss safety and prevention. Louk is the founder of Ol' Man Treestands and has been in the business for almost forty years. According to a survey by TMA in 2022, most treestand incidents were due to user neglect. Also discussed on the show is a new duck report from Matt following the winter storm.

    S3, E6: Hunting Culture in the South

    S3, E6: Hunting Culture in the South

    Ben Smith talks with Matt Langford, Hunter McCool, and Kolbe Verdun

    We talk about hunting culture all of the time, we just don't realize it. Kolbe Verdun, a recent recipient of a Master's Degree from Ole Miss, joins us to talk about his thesis paper from graduate school: Hunting Culture in the South. We cover a wide variety of topics, but barely scratch the surface. Also mentioned on the show is the end of duck season and a recent trip that Ben and Matt took with good friend, Weston Windham.
