#15 - Hunt, Harvest, Health with Ryan + Hillary Lampers

Since I started this podcast, I’ve been wanting to have an in-depth conversation about the negative way that hunting is portrayed in the media and what it really is and what kind of people make up the hunting community.  This episode is just that.

I sit down with Ryan + Hillary Lampers of the Hunt, Harvest, Health Podcast. It's one of my favorites. It's long and full of so many life lessons and stories.

[Stay tuned for a video of me hanging out with the Lampers]
