• #53: Jumping Sharks

    We live in amazing times – Youtube, Cable, Satellite – so many choices for outdoor programming. But what if we could re-invent the genre? This week, we put ourselves in the director’s chair(s) and pitch our best ideas for new outdoor entertainment. Here’s the link to Travis’ column on the loss of our beloved French Brittany, Coleman. Here’s the link to the Peterson’s Hunting article Nate discussed about Hunters and Non-Hunters co-existing . . . Follow Cast and Blast Florida . . .

  • #51: Ducks as College Football Teams

    Duck season is fast approaching.  College Football Season has already started. How does a wayward outdoors podcast combine the two? Simple – we take the AP Top 10 and assign them duck species that correlate to their various program identities. Oh.  And Emily drafts country music singers.  And maybe rappers. If that sounds like the most ridiculous 40 minutes you’ve ever spent, wait until you click play! PS – if you’re in Florida, and hunt the Kissimmee River Basin, make plans to be at this meeting!
