Today I'm joined by new Shedding Light Outdoor contributor Nate Root! We talk all about Nate's passion for archery and his journey in the IBO tournaments. We also discuss the ins and outs of his big buck he took on November 19th. It's a fun one!Check out Nate's video here: 
Today I'm joined by Jacob Silvey from Arkansas. He shares stories from the past couple of years and how he has gotten into hunting. One of which is a cool experience about a buck he was able to harvest with a recurve he made himself! Jacob is willing to not only share some good experiences but also so mistakes he's made as well. Hope you enjoy!
Today we meet Jim Nelson, Iowa native, and avid pheasant, deer, and turkey hunter. Jim tells some funny stories and some great experiences but highlights a near death encounter that happened only a week or so ago. Jim did all the right things and still nearly lost his life as he climbed up his sticks with lineman's belt attached. I'd encourage you to listen to this one and take some mental notes of what you'd have done in his situation and ways in which you can be even safer on your next hunt. 
A hunt isn't just a hunt. There's always more to the story and things happening in our lives that surround a hunt. Such was the case for 2022 and Wyatt Damron. Today he tells not only the story of a giant buck he was able to get on but also the story of his dad's fight for survival. It's a beautiful story. To watch Wyatt's video go over to Roost and Rut on YouTube or click here:
Today I'm joined by Holly Ziegler, the wife of my wife's cousin. Holly was able to harvest her very first antlered buck this past week...from the treestand...8 months pregnant! She shares a little how she got into hunting and how it all went down. She had spent some time in the woods and was "due" for a great encounter! Congrats Holly!
There's a new host in town this week! My brother Jacob Williams comes on the show to interview me about the buck I was able to take this past week. BUT first, I get to ask him questions about his buck he was able to take on the property I grew up on on October 3rd. This is a fun one. Also, head over to YouTube either before or after you listen to this and be sure to SUBSCRIBE. My buck video is done and I'll be releasing it the same day this episode drops. 
Today I'm joined by a local guy named Jansen McCloy. In early October Jansen was able to do some quick in-season scouting that led to an encounter with a huge Ohio whitetail! And before October was over he'd have another story to tell about his son's first buck as well. Jansen does a fantastic job telling these stories and also explaining how he balances hunting and home life. And to check out Dead End Game Calls that Jansen mentions, click here: 
On October 17th, my wife had a meeting up until 5:45pm but the conditions were right for me to go hunt a property I gained access on last year. From the time I pulled into the property to the time the arrow launched, only 25 minutes had elapsed. In this bonus episode I unpack what happened and the lessons learned. And I throw in one tip that might just save your hunting season.If you have a store you’d like a towel please send me an email at sheddinglight

Emma Dearing started hunting about 8 years ago. And she hasn't had a whole lot of luck in those 8 years. No deer and no turkey but that all changed in 2022!

When Gary Meinke heard about a study where they had banded some turkeys in Colorado, he had hoped he'd get the chance to get one. But after a few years passed, he figured his opportunity was slim to none. Yet that luck changed and he was no only able to get one, but two banded Toms in one year! Gary also tells the incredible story of a 28 year wait between his first Bighorn Sheep and his 2nd. Great guest and some awesome stories. Hope you enjoy and if you do please leave a rating and review!
Today I am joined by my lovely wife, Kate Williams. In Episode 88 my wife came on to talk about her perspective as a non hunter. She was never against hunting just didn't care to try it. Yet after watching a video online where wives surprised their husbands by doing an activity they really enjoyed, Kate mentioned to me she'd be willing to give turkey hunting a try. This is the story of that moment and how it led up to an incredible hunt on Saturday April 30th. Hope you enjoy this one and be sure to check out the YouTube video of the hunt here:
