Andy Warhol was wrong

It's actually about 47 minutes of fame. Or at least that's how it worked out in this case.

Judging from the stats, a lot of you saw the interview I did with Orvis hunting product developer Brett Ference who I got to know as a result of a random call one Friday afternoon. Brett also hosts the Orvis Hunting and Shooting Podcast (formerly known as the Orvis Double Barrel Podcast) and is currently doing a series on hunting the various regions of the country.

He asked if I would help with the southeast region episode and the result is nearly an hour of high wisdom and pure insight coated in enough sarcasm and stark reality to keep you from knowing which is which. If some of the guys I hunt with heard Brett refer to me as an expert they'd herniate themselves laughing, but I've always considered an expert someone who knows five things more than you about a subject. Give me long enough, boys from the 'hood, and I can come up with at least three.

Brett's an incredibly down to earth guy and we had a great time recording the show. Subscribers (it's free) should already have the episode available in their app. You can access it from the podcast website - Southeast Hunting Tips episode - at
