On this week's episode, Rick is joined by Phillip Culpepper of Hunt Club TV and Realtree Outdoors. Rick has been a fan of Phillip's for a long time and the two met each other a couple of years ago during a men's retreat through church (of course it was a hunting retreat!) After a few conversations, it was just a matter of time before schedules could line up for Phillip to join the show!
Phillip talks about his journey through the outdoor industry, and how chasing his passion of hunting led him from Realtree warehouse worker, to video producer, and now host of his own show, Hunt Club TV. It's a great story, proving that hard work, never quitting, and being willing to sacrifice always pays off. While "hunting for a living" is an amazing gig and true blessing, Phillip talks about the behind the scenes blood, sweat and tears that goes into making that dream a reality, and shares some great stories of him and other outdoor personalities like David Blanton and Michael Waddell, that helped shape what is Hunt Club TV today.
If you follow Phillip, you know that turkey hunting is his passion. While it's still somewhat early in the 2023 turkey season, he's been a busy man, already covering several states and has several more trips in the plans. He shares the details of his season so far and some of the tactics that have helped him be successful along the way. The guys cover decoys, calling techniques, TSS turkey loads and some conservation topics, and with Phillips knowledge of the game, there is a lot of good info here. If you like turkey hunting, or the outdoors in general, this is an episode you do not want to miss. Rick has been looking forward to this one for a long time and it does not disappoint. Big thanks to Phillip for joining and looking forward to him coming back again in the future.
