Ep. 021 - Shane Simpson with The Callie Chronicles
Grab your pen and paper to take notes - In Episode 20 we got to sit down with Shane Simpson, the owner of Callie the tracking dog. Shane and Matt kick off the podcast talking about turkey hunting, but after a minute get into the meat and potatoes of why Lethal Podcast wanted Shane to come on the show - his tracking statistics. ALL THE STATS HE TALKS ABOUT CAN BE FOUND ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE. Shane has kept copious amounts of data on his tracks that is giving us a better insight into what we should expect out of broadheads and recovery rates on whitetail deer. Spoiler alert: it's not looking good for mechanical broadheads. You guys are in for a treat. Check out Shane on social media. YouTube Facebook Instagram

Ep. 020 - Garrett Weaver with On Point Podcast
This week we were lucky enough to do a collaboration episode with Garrett Weaver from On Point. We felt that Garrett was cut from the same cloth as us. An honest guy who doesn't want to be bought in the archery industry. We have a great discussion about the current state of the archery industry, bro-staffers, and particularly about uniting the whole hunting front against the anti-hunting community in a really positive way. When you look up "Good Dudes" in the encyclopedia, we're pretty sure there's a picture of Garrett Weaver. Check out Garrett's social media. YouTube Facebook Instagram
