Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Oct 27, 2019

John Eberhart joined us last on Episode 209, where we broke down John's tactics and answered questions based on listener curiosities.  This time is a little different. Jay, now with a few saddle hunts under his belt and a first hand account of what it's like, hits John with numerous questions from the novice to the legendary saddling hunting expert. Jay and John engage in many details of saddle hunting overlooked in the first interview.
