Fascinating podcast

This is such an interesting podcast. I love animals & oddly enough, having had several encounters with wild animals in my life, all have been peaceful and respectful on both parts. Most often I was young and too ignorant to know to be afraid and I personally believe the lack of fear and God’s grace saved my life. I even had an owl fly right beside me in a tight spot where his wings clipped my neck and we both kept going without aggression or defensive behavior. On another outing, it was pitch dark and I did not see the Black Bear. I can only assume it didn’t see me either, as we physically brushed right by each other and we each just kept walking. An elk stood five feet behind me without me knowing it was there until I turned around and I found myself once surrounded by about 40 Big Horned Sheep. It was as if they escorted me across the meadow. I just talked to them as we walked. Buffalo, wolf, mountain lions, bobcats. God looked out for me. Each encounter was unexpected and I was so grateful to have experienced them but never would I have pursued them. God was merciful to me. This podcast would have told me what to do but most were long before anyone had heard of a podcast or even had home computers. Just a blessing in nature. I love the respect yet common sense taught about close encounters with wild animals in this podcast. I give it five stars and hope many will listen and learn from this intuitive and wise man.

My Favorite Nature Podcast!

As a Naturalist/Educator for 30 years, I always enjoy listening to other naturalists express their views on the natural world. This is my absolute favorite nature podcast to listen to. I love how it encourages others to explore nature and how it takes me to new and familiar places and gives me another view of these places. I also enjoy the conservation side of many of the episodes. Thank you so much for producing The Wild!
