Power6.5 ,

Great podcast with a lot of info!!

Can’t thank these guys enough after listening to the Garry Vines episode. Went and bought the Spurmaster and killed my first turkey by myself this season!

Rambo Bambi ,

Great podcast and even better people

I had the pleasure of meeting Jacob and Andrew at the Southern Mobile Hunters expo and the guys that you hear/see every time you play an episode will be the guys you get when you start a conversation with them in person. They took the time talk deer and tactics with everyone who wanted too despite being tired and probably needing a water break or maybe a beer lol. If you listen to the podcast and apply the tactics you will grow as a hunter and see results. Great work guys and keep it up!

Cayson31 ,

If this podcast was any better it would come with free Reese’s cups.

I spend my days behind the wheel of a fedex truck and this podcast keeps me rolling. I’ve listened to every episode and multiple episodes more than once. Guest list is phenomenal and the listener success stories are insane!
