#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 . . .

Emily: The Staves . . . particularly this cover of Jolene . . .

#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!

#44: iCast 2018

Did Nate really just join a cult?  Plus, we recap much of the new and noteworthy stuff we discovered at ICAST 2018 last week, including:

GoLock: mygolock.com

A mobile electronic locking system designed for Outdoorsmen.

Seigler Reels: seigler.fish

Wes Seigler taught himself how to work with metal and fashioned an ICAST 2018 Best in Show Fly Reel!

Tactacam: tactacam.com

We think this is BETTER than a GoPro – lighter, a better on/off system, AND zoom capabilities, plus lowlight features and a new fish cam!

RidgeMonkey: ridgemonkey.co.uk

What DO we want from RidgeMonkey?

How about: A Modular Bucket that Travis is going to turn into the ultimate blind bag? Or what about a PowerBank that would recharge your iPhone 35 times?  CookwareCamp Stoves?

Cauldryn: cauldryn.com

It’s a coffee cup.  It’s a blender.  It’s a percolator.  It’ll cook your soup.  It’ll zap bugs, light up your camp, and who knows what else.  Our pick for “Best in Show” at ICAST 2018 was the Cauldryn system . . .
