With the world virtually at a standstill and many wishing, they had more survival skills. James Nash and Lampers join me today for a conversation about how we as sportsmen can up our skills to be better prepared for chaotic times such as these. So many things are unknown right now and we talk about some issues as it pertains to both spring closers affecting bear hunts and also what fall hunts might hold.
One big take away is that you must be flexible and be able to adapt as things change and evolve. We talk about how this hunting season for many will be much more about filling the freezer as times are very uncertain. Ryan gives some great tips on canning meat and we also cover freezer management ideas.
