Best hunting podcast, PERIOD! I’ve heard a lot of podcasts about hunting and they are typically all the same. Except this one, he is HONEST and he does his homework on each subject that he speaks on. Not to mention that he also includes the word of God as well. You have a terrific podcast sir and don’t change anything. Thanks for what you are doing!

I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work. Your podcast has been an absolute pleasure to hear, and I have listened to every episode. As a new hunter who has been trying to find a mentor for a couple years to go big game hunting, your podcast has given me the confidence to go out on my own and just get started.

I am a brand new deer hunter and I’ve had all kinds of questions about deer hunting and I’ve been searching for a podcast and it has helped me in a lot of way more than I can explain so keep up the good work.

I just wanted to say thanks for doing this podcast. As a new hunter, I have found this podcast as a huge resource in helping me prepare, train and equip for my first turkey hunting season. I have listened for the past few months and feel this has been an invaluable resource to me. Please keep the good info flowing.

Hi I love your podcast, new deer hunter, and it’s helping me a lot.

My whole life I always wanted to go hunting but I had no idea where to start. I found your podcast at the beginning of this year and because of you, I decided this was the year I am going to go hunting for the first time in my life (I am 35 years old). I listened to all of the episodes and I even heard some episodes more than twice. I am completely clueless about hunting so I had no idea about having a meat processor ready, taxidermy ready, hunting bibs, and other information. So, I followed your advice and took notes, and by September 2020, I had mostly everything ready for my first hunting experience.

When your podcast episode about bibs came out this month, I went on the app called “Offer Up” and found a brand-new pair of Under Armor bibs, with an attached price tag of $250 and I bought them for $70. 

So finally, it is Friday, November 20, 2020, in Northern Illinois, (my home state) firearm/shotgun deer season and I’m ready to go. I’m wearing my bids and I am seating on my stand. Within 2 hours, a 4-point buck is directly in front of me, 35 yards away and I took the shot. I just harvest my first deer, and because of you, I was able to gut it, take him to the meat processor, and asked for his rack.

Then on Saturday, November 21, 2020, within the 30 minutes of legal shooting time, a 6-point buck walks to the west of me, 20 yards away and I took the shot. I harvest another deer.

I have to say, what a great experience. I harvested two bucks in two days on my first-ever hunt. And I know this does not happen to everyone, and most likely I will never experience something like this again. It may be years before I shoot another deer, but I enjoyed it and I can’t wait for next season.

George, please keep doing your podcasts, you have so much great information. And after hearing your episode on duck hunting 101, I am already planning a duck hunting trip for next year. I found a great outfitter near my residence, at a reasonable price and I am taking my teenage son with me. I’ll send you an update on that trip. Thank you again and may God Bless you and your family.

Just discovered your podcast after hearing you on the Hoosier Outdoorsman podcast. I wish I had this before I started hunting 2 years ago, it is perfect for where I am in my development as a hunter. I have listed to most of your episodes in the last couple days.

Thanks for your podcast. I started listening this December and have listened to a lot of episodes and learned a ton. I have never hunted before but am determined to start and this is great.

Great for new hunters, especially on a budget. I am a new hunter as of the past 2 seasons. I discovered this podcast in late 2020 and immediately wished I had found a year before. No matter, I have listened to nearly all the past episodes on hunting in general and really all the deer hunting episodes. Very practical, technical but not overly so for us new guys.

Many explanations and definitions given so I could learn the language and jargon of hunting. No fluff. Budget conscious. Etc, etc. love it. If you are new to hunting or wanting to learn something new and perhaps change up some of your old patterns, you have to give this podcast a serious try. I don’t believe you will regret it.

Even for the experienced folk. I’ve been deer hunting for about 20 years. Seriously bow hunting for about the last 10. Before this year, I turkey hunted a handful of times and I had killed 3 turkeys. So I’m not exactly a new hunter, but I still love this podcast and find it so helpful. I tagged out with 2 toms the first two mornings of spring turkey this year, and then a couple days later took a friend out and he tagged out on the first sit. I credit those three birds 100% from knowledge gained from podcasts, and this podcast was one of the best. Love all the approaches you take into tactics/strategies/equipment and explaining the pros and cons of each.

It’s also refreshing to hear somebody who talks about getting it done by just going back to the basics. With how complex the world of hunting has been getting, I myself need to be reminded that you can get it done with the bare minimum and have a ton of success. Kinda makes it fun again too. I think it’s good for even experienced hunters to be reminded of the foundational basics that can sometimes be complacently blown over while overthinking everything. Just get what you NEED and get in the woods.

Excellent. I just started listening to the podcast and have found it very informative. I’m new to hunting and have found it difficult to get the right information. I’ve read multiple books, but have found they are too advanced or too basic. George’s podcast really gets to the point and helps a new hunter understand what is and is not needed.

Informative & Entertaining! I thoroughly enjoy each of George’s podcasts, even when I don’t plan on hunting the species that he’s talking about. As an amateur hunter, I’ve enjoyed the way he cuts through the marketing and “things you should have” and tells you what you need and what you don’t (or maybe don’t need until you get more experience). Seems to me to be a man of strong faith and character, and I believe that you’ll enjoy the podcast as well!

Fantastic. This podcast taught me a lot. I am a new hunter and really leaned a lot of useful info from this series. A lot of hunting info is designed to sell products or is designed to appeal to trophy hunters. Neither approach appeals to me. This show really helps you learn about hunting.

Hey I just wanted to let you know I love your podcast and have been learning a lot. I’ve been getting into hunting this past year in my 20s and it’s hard to ask all my hunting questions to people who have been hunting for years. Your podcast has answered so many questions and always has great info. Thanks again for all that you do.
