Chalk this episode up to fascinating thing learned while duck hunting along Arizona’s Salt River. John Odell is Arizona’s Migratory Game Bird Coordinator and holds the claim to fame as first known hunter achieving a little known North American Slam – you won’t guess it in a million years. Along the way, he tells a thought-provoking story about his dad’ last buck. What makes Arizona one of the most unique landscapes in North America, and what are the predominate duck species bagged? Why do small game intrigue him, what’s a Jackson Rifle, and how’d he “find his tribe” while attending a championship cook-off in Bentonville, Arkansas? What is the Big Breast Contest in Yuma, Arizona entail, and what annual hunting event is regaled as very best in North America? Part 1 of a 2-part series with John Odell will have your head reeling like a hell-bent squirrel scrabbling up a piñon pine, bark flying! Odell’s an incredible story-teller, plenty interesting subjects you’ve likely never thought of, but like me will probably add to your bucket list.
