  • #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 . . .

  • #62: Hunting and Ecology with David Mizejewski

  • #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. Follow Cast and Blast Florida . . .
