Notable Quotes A smart person knows how to spend time with other successful people, learn from them and leverage their expertise. Not all hunting strategies will work for you, even when they come from experienced experts. Hunt at the right time. Otherwise, you will run into burnout and lose the most important relationship in your life; the family. Cornfields are better to hunt than bean fields. When you have a food source, late-season hunting can be the best.

Second to none
Very entertaining and informative content. I have learned a ton from listening and using their products. Best customer service I have ever experienced with any company!
One of my favorite Hunting podcasts !
Love the whitetail information! I would highly recommend listening to this podcast. Awesome arrow ordering structure - makes it easy to find the correct arrow for anyone. It’s highly impressive!
I can easily say, I will continue listening weekly because I love this podcast.
Excited that the Exodus team came out with a more budget friendly cell camera. I have yet to purchase a cell camera due to the costly investment. I can’t imagine the increased benefits of owning a cell with all the perks Exodus provides. Time sensitive intel on target bucks would definitely help determining which stand to hunt on a daily basis.
This is one of the best whitetail podcast out there! But, FJE. Can’t stand him.
