    Bird hunting podcast: Wild chukars in Northern Nevada opening weekend! How dogs ”talk,” and your own opener in words & pictures

    My music-school buddy Dave and I debrief our opening weekend in Northern Nevada ... wild chukars and valley quail, rugged ground, some pretty good dog work, and better shooting than usual from this guy! We talk habitat, tactics, eye-melting scenery, strategies, and keep our music insider chat to a minimum :)


    You'll also get a chance to win a Peet boot dryer, find out how dogs warn us - sort of, and everyone chimes in on their own opening weekend - if they had one!

    Bird hunting podcast: public access from A-Z, a prize, and the ultimate simple survival kit

    Bird hunting podcast: public access from A-Z, a prize, and the ultimate simple survival kit

    Start the season with a bang ... maybe a double!


    "This Land is Your Land," and this primer on finding public access hunting grounds will take you from nowhere to unexplored (by you) territory that might become your favorite spot. From online and IRL information sources, to the people and apps that can help you find walk-in land and the birds you and your dog love to pursue.


    A few warnings about who you can and can't trust or don't want to piss off (bureaucrats), whether you should trust your mobile mapping app (NO) and the main reason you should exploit every information source you can.


    Then, don't leave home without it: the ultimate "10 Essentials." Call it a survival kit if you like, but these must-have, must-carry lifesavers should be in every hunter's vest.


    And a chance to win a Peet boot dryer too!

Most professional

It is obvious Scott has the most experience in both media production and bird hunting combined out of all podcast hosts. His production value is the highest, no doubt. I really like how he doesn’t interrupt his guests. His self-deprecating sense of humor is right up my alley too. I get excited to listen to every new episode knowing I will learn something valuable. My only critique is I wish he did more deep dive long form episodes with especially interesting guests. Keep them coming Scott!

Scott really does a great job bringing experienced speakers to the table. Tells the story and engages the listeners comments! Can’t wait to see Scott speak Live at an event. Our family listens. Some podcast uses vulgar language not thinking that we have youth and family engaged in our podcast. Good job in keeping it fun!
