It was a normal morning in the whitetail woods for bowhunter Justin Swift when one miss step nearly cost him his life. However, quick thinking and a quick response by local emergency personnel ultimately left him with a hell of a story and one gruesome scar. Justin joins the show this week to relive that October day with us. I hope the conversation leaves you reflecting on if you’re prepared for a similar emergency situation.

Justin arrowed this spike in 2020, he missed the majority of the 2021 archery season while recovering from his injury.

Then we switch gears and talk bobs and blues with Dr. Brad Dabbert of Quail Tech Alliance. The Texas Tech University based research organization is one of the leaders in quail conservation. Dr. Dabbert discusses the latest projects they’re currently working on including predator management and quail life cycle mortality rates. Thanks to Quail Coalition and Park Cities Quail for their tireless support of organizations like Quail Tech.
