On this week’s episode, I answer a listener question about online resources that can help awaken the outdoorsman in you and your kids.


I am not a fly fisherman, but Adam has really become interested in it.

  • He’ll go on YouTube and search for different fly fishing topics and show me what he’s learning.
  • My favorite channel on YouTube is called GrowingDeer.tv
  • If you’re a deer hunter, or really just an outdoorsman, it covers a lot of topics like feeding, nutrition, what to do with your land, predator control, etc.
  • It’s produced by wildlife biologist Dr. Grant Woods and is a great testament to the spirit of entrepreneurship.
  • I see such a great dad and husband in him. There are probably 40 or 50 hunting shows on TV, and GrowingDeer.tv on YouTube is by far better than any of them.


I can’t find anything to do with my sons that has more time attached to it or is more intimate than sitting in a box with nothing to do but talk.

  • Deer hunting is different than fishing or bird hunting—you’ve got to be still and quiet.
  • When you’re sitting shoulder to shoulder and whispering, there’s time to talk about things that might not normally come up or things that need time for you to think over to answer.


Some friends of ours have a farm that they hunt on, and over the past 20 years they’ve given away several thousand pounds of meat.

  • My dad brought me up that if you do harvest an animal, you eat it or give it to a family in need.
  • It’s great for families that don’t have anything, and there are drop-off places that hunters can take a deer to give away to families in need.


Tune in to hear the statistics on why a certain kind of meat (you can probably guess which one) is so healthy compared to beef and other popular meats.
