Keith Beam On Hunting From A Ground Blind And Children’s Hunting Books

Today’s guest is going to share some interesting thoughts with us on another piece of gear that is really popular for some whitetail and turkey hunters, but also actually has a lot of applications for hunts out west: ground blinds. Keith has really been around the block a time or two when it comes to hunting out of ground blinds today he’s going to share a BUNCH of tips and tricks with you guys on how to get the absolute most out of your ground blind regardless of whether you’re hunting whitetail deer, turkey, mule deer, pronghorn, or even elk.

Now, make sure you stick around at the end of the show because Keith and I are also going to talk about a couple of really cool hunting books he specifically designed for kids that should really be interesting to those of you who are parents or grandparents to small children and want to introduce them to hunting at an early age. 

Feel free to send me a message with any feedback you have on the show as well as topic requests for future episodes.
