Thanks.

Episode 351 was exactly what I needed today. Sane coherent outdoor people speaking reverently about the natural world, unselfishly about the pandemic, with affection for children and respect for the lives of the creatures they hunt.

Thank you.

Great Podcast

I found wired to hunt recently and have become addicted to it. It is slam packed full of great advise for every type of hunter. If I had one thing I wish they did would be a few more episodes on hunting in the south like Georgia, Alabama, etc. but overall live the podcast.
