I have to admit, I was a late adopter of the whole podcasting craze. While I enjoy reading about hunting and watching a good hunt, the thought of listening to guys just talk about hunting didn’t appeal to me. But like a lot of things in life, I gave it a try and was surprised to find that I really enjoyed them — well most of them, anyways. I started off with some of the popular national hunting podcasts, and soon found myself seeking out podcasts that spoke more to my specific interests: hunting public land and, more specifically, hunting in the South. And while there isn’t an overabundance of hunting podcasts with a southern flair, there are several I listen to on a regular basis that I would highly recommend checking out.
Here are my top 5 favorite southern hunting podcasts, in no particular order.
Whitetail Guru Podcast
The Whitetail Guru hunting podcast, hosted by my friend Nathan Unger, is specifically designed to educate as well as entertain hunters in the South. The podcast primarily focuses on whitetail hunting, however it does occasionally highlight other species as well as different regions. The show features interviews with biologists, hunting experts, and the average, everyday hunter so you can glean valuable insight from all different perspectives.
