Hey Mark I listen to you all the time and I'm a fan of you and all the guys you had on the Tethrd Saddle Hunting Episode. Your best episode to date. You have to invite those guys again. Nothing is better than hanging in a tree hunting! Keep up your amazing work and I look forward to hearing your next podcast! And by the way you have a great voice! Sincerely, Mark Pardo

you guys can talk about your kids and how it correlates with hunting all you want. I never had a problem with it before but now that I'm about to become a father it resonates with me even more.

Hey man, like the show. Lots of good info on tactics and great stories. Was kinda hoping to ask a favor about scents. Specifically doe in heat types, whether it's a wick or a drag or a dripper. was hoping to get your opinion on this tactic. I've been hunting for 20plus years and used them, not used them back and forth. I do most hunts on Ohio public land. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this. thanks a lot, much appreciated.

Hey Mark, listening from North BAMA, I'm an avid hunter and outdoor enthusiast who loves listening to your podcasts but I don't hear much about hunting in the south east . Do you have anyone updating you on activity down here ?
