TJ Mallette is the founder and owner of Black Duck Waterfowl in Saskatchewan, CA and Stuttgart, AR. He is also one of the most waterfowl crazed individuals I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. So naturally, he was the perfect person to have come in and talk ducks with. We talk guiding, outfitting, the differences between hunting ducks in Canada vs. the Southeast, and several tips that could help you be more successful.
I strongly believe upland hunting doesn't get the shine that it deserves. Although I'm still very new to it, I have fallen in love with it quickly. In this episode we dissect a recent pheasant and quail hunt we went in on Northern Kansas. We talk about what worked, how poor of a shot I can be sometimes, how much joy it adds to the experience to have your dog out there hunting with you, and how it was truly one of the most fun hunting experiences I have ever had. We also give some advice on how someone who is interested in the craft could get started in chasing upland birds. Give this episode a listen. I promise you won't regret it.

We love the opportunity to bring people on this show that come from all different walks of life. It gives us the chance to get different perspectives and better understandings. Our good friend, Hunter Renfroe, has been playing baseball for the San Diego Padres since 2013, and can tell us from first hand experience what it's like to put the extreme work schedule of an MLB outfielder against a strong love for hunting and time in the outdoors. As always, there are several good stories and laughs along the way.
