Spenser dropped ball

Dumbest game I've ever heard of and Steve is 100% right why on earth would you do something different and commemoration to something we are 15 minutes into the episode episode and no one has a clue what's going on and Spencer is still saying it's simple. This was a mistake.

Big deer hunter frfr ,

Amazing

Best podcast

If you love hunting you must listen to this podcast I’m 9 years old and it’s crazy how much I love this podcast because it’s so simple
