Welcome to the Rich outdoors podcast. Thank you guys so much for all the messages and DM’s this time of year it seems we get a ton of new listeners and I just want to say thank you and my apologies if we didn’t get back to you. Today’s podcast is with Mr. Jaden Bales, who has been a huge help to me over the last year and I can’t thank him enough. Jaden has been helping me with social media and various other tasks as the podcast grows. Going back to last January we did a podcast with Mike and Angela Haralson about financial planning for hunting, which has had thousands of downloads and a ton of feedback. Jaden had the idea that we should also do a podcast about hunting on a college budget. After reminiscing about all of our hunting trips during those broke ass college days we decided to just hit record and go over some tips to hunting on the cheap. This was a fun episode and if you enjoy this podcast be sure to go back and check out Ep 198 with Mike and Angela. Also, Stay tuned after the show for an iTunes 5 star shoutout and free gear!
