  • #139: Flip Flops

    Have you ever made up your mind on something, only to rethink your take sometime later? That sounds remarkably unfamiliar in this day and age, but we decided to take a run at some things we’ve reconsidered in our outdoor approaches – from baits to boats, duck hunting to dove hunting, hear us flip flop our way through our adventures. Plus, Keep and Release is back, Nate talks weather, Em talks surge arrestors, and Travis talks baseball.  Also, new band names. Go to Patreon and become a friend of the show OFFICIALLY here!

  • #137: Fiances, Fudd, & Fishing

    For the first time in what seems like a million years, the gang is ALL.  HERE.

  • Conversations 2.12: Marcia Brownlee, Artemis Sportswoman

  • Bonus Episode: Field of Dreams

    We’re on Vacation this week, which means a Bonus Episode! If you’re here for hunting and fishing, check back Thursday for a great conversation about Artemis Sportswomen and a fantastic story of how the Program Manager got into hunting! But, in the meantime, so we don’t get penalized by the Apple Overlords, here are some random thoughts on the 1989 Kevin Costner Classic, Field of Dreams . . . PS – if you know someone who’s not always down to talk hunting, fishing, or conservation, this might be a great episode to introduce them to our platform.  Provided they like the movie.  If not, just don’t tell them!

  • Conversations 2.11: Dr. Richard Chandler

    Recently, FWC revealed the final product of the South Florida Deer Study, a multi year paper that provided a in depth examination of how deer in both Big Cypress and Panther NWR behave and are affected by hunters, predators, and hydrology. This study is remarkably timely, given the backdrop of the Western Everglades Restoration Project coupled with hunters observations of the Big Cypress deer herd. The study can be found on FWC’s website or you can find it on Dr. Chandler’s site here, where you can also follow Dr. Chandler’s other works.

  • #136: the One about Conservation

    What happens when you take an article entitled “The Message of Conservation Failed” and mix it with the North American Conservation Model, Space X, the National Wildlife Refuge System, and Fisheries Management, while at the same time giving the funny host the week off and letting the other one take a break to (airquotes) “get married” . . .

  • Conversations 2.10: Jerod Newman

    Dogs Spend any time around any group of waterfowlers and the conversation will eventually turn to dogs – good ones, bad ones, crazy ones. This week, we’re joined by Jerod Newman of Doyle’s Farm Kennels, the premier retriever trainer in Florida.  He gives us a broad overview of the world he exists in, from bumper colors to e-collars, force fetch, hunt tests, and how answering an ad in the Orlando Sentinel changed his life.

  • #135: Nate’s Bachelor Party

    What do you do when your best friend has to miss his bachelor party AND postpone his wedding, but still gets married this week? You throw a virtual bachelor party and record it as your podcast episode. If you’re here for hunting, fishing, conservation, Florida – boy, did you pick the wrong week . . . But, we’re more than just those things – we’re a family, and when it’s a landmark event in someone’s life, sometimes you just roll with the good times. That’s what this is.  Hope you enjoy it.
