Today on The Wired To Hunt Podcast we’re joined by Jim Shockey, the renowned big game outfitter and legendary outdoor TV host. And in this episode, given Jim’s extensive experience hunting and filming in Canada, we’re chatting about hunting big Northern whitetails. Jim’s passion for the hunt just oozes from this conversation and I think you’re going to enjoy this episode just as much as I did.
