A Podcast dedicated to Chukar hunting and the People and stories that fuel the adventure

    Episode 91: The New Zealand Chukar Hunter

    Episode 91: The New Zealand Chukar Hunter

    Episode 91: Joe Carson, the New Zealand Chukar Hunter.
    I'm back! After two months off, its great to be back in the podcast booth (aka the guestroom closet). I wanted to bring a great episode to you, and this one hits the mark.
    Joe Carson lives and hunts Chukar on the South Island of New Zealand. Like many places, Chukar were introduced there way back in the 1920s. Now, only a small group (25-30) New Zealanders still make the trek to hunt them. Like us here, we relish in our little niche and the die hard community it produces.
    Join me this week as we are transported to the Southern Hemisphere and learn all about New Zealand Chukar hunting.

No longer a family show

I have listened since episode one and I have always appreciated that my kids could listen with me. After listening lately I am sorry to say that you have lost a fan and listener.

A great resource!!

I am an avid hunter and angler and like many have fallen into an addiction to chase these birds. Listening to this podcast has not only kept me stoked before and during the season. I love how easy the conversations are to listen to. It almost feels like you could be sitting there with them as they are recording. The content is great and there is more information then you will know what to do with. I also really appreciate the non bias approach to the information delivered. It’s nice to hear all sorts of different approaches and opinions when it comes to chasing birds. Thanks!
