• #101: Did We Just Become Best Friends?

    What makes you instantly connect with another hunter or fisher?  Is it when they crank up the radio and “Careless Whisper” comes pouring out?  Is it when they choose Mose as their favorite character on the office?  Or maybe it’s their choice of boat snack, beverage, or nicotine delivery method. This week, we’re discussing the things that make or break best friends in the outdoors world! Plus, rapping country, dove hunts, preservation vs. conservation, recipes, and really bad segue’s . . .

A little less than 2 years ago we took to the airwaves and forever changed the face of podcasting (note: we didn’t say we changed it for the better) . . . with our first episode taking a tongue in cheek view of Things Fishermen Like.
