    Wild Game Writing, Lobbying, & Cuisine

    Greg and Eric cover a lot of ground with guest, Courtney Nicolson, Associate Director of Communications for Sportsmen's Alliance. Courtney shares her travels around the US and how she got into hunting and working in the outdoor/hunting industry. She's been a writer for several well-known outdoor and hunting publications. She also cooks exquisite wild game recipes sourced from her 'round the country hunts.
    From there, we dive into the world of politics and lobbying from the lens of the Sportsmen's Alliance and how they help to protect our heritage and rights as hunters. It's a well-informed articulation of how they operate and what you can expect from them as an organization as well as how to get involved in a practical way to ensure your voice as a hunter is heard.

Awesome Podcast

Found these guys on tiktok and bought one of their hats. After listening to their podcasts they are awesome! Great values and great content.

The way hunting should be!

This podcast, and all their social media content, to me is what hunting is all about. Having a great time, camaraderie, and eating food. I hear a lot of hunters get so worked up over seeing a bunch of deer but not the big buck they “want”. But they are miserable the entire time. Give these guys a listen and just have FUN!!!!
