Joshua Carney–you may know him as Son of the South, or the animal calling guy. Joshua not only has an amazing ability to make all kinds of game call sounds with his mouth (and yes he beats me in a calling contest as you’ll hear in the show) but what is incredible about him, is his outlook on life and his upbeat positive attitude. Despite being told he would never walk again after a hunting accident left him paralyzed, Joshua is out there enjoying his passion for the outdoors.
Mr. Son of the South’s upbeat attitude and positive outlook on life is all but contagious and inspiring. Not only is he a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, Josh works his butt off to be a successful hunter. In this podcast, we talk about many of the struggles and challenges he faces and how he approaches those situations. As Josh shares his story, its hard not to be both impressed and inspired to do more and work harder.
All seriousness aside, Josh and I had a blast recording this episode, having a calling competition, talking about using dogs to pick up chicks, and cougar hunting (at a bar) vs lion hunting (in the woods).
Hope this episode inspires everyone to be better, or at least puts a smile on your face. Joshua “Son of the South” Carney is an inspiration to us all.
