Great job Jason. I especially loved listening to you talk about sharing things with you dad.... your voice changed each time and I could feel the love and passion you share with your dad.... pretty cool. Can't wait to see both of your kill photos this Fall. Lots of good tips. Well done sir.

Excellent podcast guys. Thanks for all of the insight Whitetailassasin. Coming up on my third anniversary on the Beast, this is exactly what I needed. In the past few years, I have often times found myself asking the question "Why do I do this?" My buddies keep asking me, "Are you going to hunt the same way this year?" Internally I think "It's so hard", but my answer is "I have no choice." Knowing what I know now, it seems like a waste of time NOT to hunt like a beast. You have given me a lot of needed propulsion to stick it out and up my game this season. Congratulations on all of your effort and payoff.

-"You literally gotta almost try to remember what it was like how you hunted it before you knew these tactics"

-"how would I have hunted this area before I would've hunted the Beast?"

Great quotes.

Thanks again guys.

I just listened to this at work and really enjoyed it. As always I'll have to listen multiple times to retain it haha.

I liked how Jason mentioned keying in on the lesser seen/talked about edges. Great tip! I also related to when you said you begin your transition into a big buck hunter, how you didn't feel "that feeling" after shooting a buck. It seems to be frowned upon to talk about it but I felt that in 2013 and 2014. That meant that it was time to step the game up. Very motivating listen.

Good luck to you and the family this season!

Great Job Jason and Mario!

Take your bow and a quiver full of arrows, and go out into the open country to hunt some wild game for me.

Great job guys! To me, the podcast really reinforced the importance of finding overlooked primary bedding, and that there are at least a few mature bucks living on public in Michigan. Good stuff.

great job Mario and Jason, the podcast was well put together. i liked how you drove home the point of really learning a property well. It can be real easy for a guy to spread himself too thin and not really learn the details of the properties he's hunting.

Great podcast guys! Another podcast that reinforces how hard work pays off!
Jason I hope your dad gets a good one this year.. It hit home When you were talking about your hunting history with your dad and that one of your goals was to share a p&y kill with him...That is one of my goals this year as well.

Been listening on and off all day. Good stuff. The relationship with your dad...awesome. I know last year I got to help my dad drag out the first deer he has killed in 22yrs. It was pretty special. Some dads can be a bit more stubborn...lol.

Probably my favorite podcast so far. Great job again Mario and thanks for doing this Jason. I know you like to keep to yourself and be a little more low key on things but you have alot to offer when it comes to hunting pressured bucks. Thanks again and goodluck to you and your dad this year!
