#62: Hunting and Ecology with David Mizejewski

If you don’t know David Mizejewski, he’s a naturalist, spokesperson, and television personality for the National Wildlife Federation.  He’s appeared on the Today Show, Wendy Williams, Conan, Good Morning America, and more, as well as hosted shows on Animal Planet and NatGeo.

We invited him to join us to discuss his perspective on hunting . . . An ecologist who doesn’t hunt, we felt like this was a great opportunity to hear from a voice who is both important in conservation and could provide a non-hunter’s point of view on some of our favorite pastimes . . .

Follow David here: WebsiteInstagramTwitterFacebook

Keeps:

Nate:  Keeping our fingers crossed for full funding of the Land Water Conservation Fund – LWCF

Travis: The new Tactacam 5.0 – what GoPro wishes it could be!  Message Travis for more details . . .

#59: Are There Too Many Duck Hunters?

This week, we tackle something near and dear to our hearts . . . the debate about recruiting new waterfowlers to our sport and, potentially, our spots.

But, before we get to that, we draft country music artists, discuss BHA’s latest promotion, pay your age hunts, our missing fishin’, and more!

Here’s the link to the Delta Waterfowl Article we referenced during the show!

Emily – The 90’s Country Spotify Playlist – warning: DOES contain Kenny Chesney, and the Myofascial Ball Release video that changed her life

#56: Southernisms

Remember last week how we sounded all smart and stuff?  Additive harvest and predator swamping and protandric hermaphoditism and whatnot?

Y’all.

We asked “what are your favorite southern sayings” and boy, did y’all come through in a MAJOR way.

Constipated turkeys, fence sitting turtles, sock wearing roosters, and perhaps the world’s most awkward anatomy lesson are just the beginning!

Warning – may not be safe for little ears.  But we tried.

Other warning – forgive us.

#55: The More You Know

Remember “The More You Know” from NBC Saturday Morning?

This is the podcast equivalent of Blossom talking about reading or Matthew Perry talking about exercise or Al Roker talking about being a good dad, only it’s us talking about outdoors things.

Predator Swamping.  Protandric Hermaphroditism. Additive vs. Compensatory harvest.

Plus, French Fries, April Vokey, Hurricanes, Hot  Weather hatred, and Beef Jerky!

Here’s the link to the article Travis mentioned about Waterfowl Surveys

Keeps:

Nate – the BHA Patagonia GOSA Event – if you’re in the Greater ATL area, make sure you don’t miss this event!

Emily – Florida’s Finest Beef Jerky – We discovered this at the Florida Sportsman show – and, well, we agree – it is the finest . . .

Travis – April Vokey’s Podcast, Anchored – This is the best outdoors podcast on the planet.  We’ll settle for second place*

#54: Long Division

We’re back – and better than ever!

This week, we discuss the things that divide outdoorsmen, and we talk about ways to bring ourselves together.

Duck hunters vs. duck hunters, fishermen vs. fishermen, hunters vs. fishermen – one day, we’ll wake up and realize we should’ve paid more attention to the things that unite us!

A new season of MeateaterDarkwater calls save early wood duck season – Emily’s stoked about Season 3 of Serial . . . plus – ice cream!

#52: The Voices in Our Heads

When you’re spending time in the Great Outdoors, what voices are in your head?

From our parents to our kids to Steve Rinella and Randy Newberg and Rocky Leflore, technology coupled with memories has given us a fantastic perspective on why we do, what we do . . . This is our discussion about that!

Bonus: Here’s a link to Emily’s Wasabi Oreos . . .

Keeps:

Emily – Hipcamp – need a campsite?  This site is like airbnb, only for campers!
