    -
    “...If you properly respect what you are after, and shoot it cleanly and on the animal’s terrain, if you imprison in your mind all the wonder of the day from sky to smell to breeze to flowers—then you have not merely killed an animal. You have lent immortality to a beast you have killed because you loved him and wanted him forever so that you could recapture the day…” - Robert Ruark, author and big game hunter.

Great Podcast from a Down to Earth Crew

This is a great podcast even if you’re not into hunting and fishing (though it’s even better if you are). The guys are well round outdoorsmen and really do their homework prior to recording, which makes their topics and interviews worth while. One of the things I enjoy most is that the crew is made up of diverse backgrounds and they are from different regions of the country. This gives great points of view and captures various aspects of hunting, fishing, and cooking.
