They say most people switch careers 3 times in their lives. I hope that never becomes my reality. It’s no secret that I am blessed to get to call hunting and fishing a job. Of course there are the hours upon hours of behind the scenes prep/taping/editing/content creation etc that goes into all this, but at the end of the day I get to do what I love. All of it is only possible however because of the good Lord and one saint of a wife. So to celebrate this little milestone of 700 episodes, I figured we’d have Erin join the conversation to discuss her thoughts on the Lone Star Outdoor Show. Get ready for a couple of laughs as we pull the curtain back just a little bit.
Then our old friend and John McAdams of the Big Game Hunting Blog makes his return to the program. We talk about upcoming mule deer and coues deer hunts and the respective rifles we are each taking on those adventures (6.5 PRC and 7 PRC). Then we do a deep dive on different bullet construction types (cup and core vs copper and bonded) and their expected performance once impacting a big game animal. John is a big fan of copper bullets and he explains why that is. Of course, there are also drawbacks to copper as well which we also make note of. We even get some historical context on how bonded bullets came to be with John Nosler’s experience with a tough bull moose.
