Duck Season Somewhere Podcast

MOJO’S Duck Season Somewhere Podcast

Brandon Cereke AND Lee Kjos, Old School

Brandon Cerecke and Lee Kjos of BOSS Shotshells join Ramsey for a fast-and-furious roundhouse, full-on old school discussion. Plowing like a meteor through a snowbank, the trio talk about shotguns, chokes, patterns, exciting new BOSS copper-plated bismuth  shotshell developments, duck season expectations, and good ol’ rock-n-roll!  What’re the boys readying for duck season? Is there really a sub-gauge revolution happening in America? Why are young hunters now shooting grandad’s generations-old safe queen, or suddenly buying hunting shotguns older than their dad?  Who’s listening to what, memorable concerts and what does Kjos propose as a future episode topic?

Robbie Kroger, In the Blood

It’s all about hunting values. It’s a cold January morning preceding Dallas Safari Club. Blood Origins producer Robbie Kroger breaks for coffee with Ramsey Russell before interviewing Weatherby Award winners. In a time that sport hunting is increasingly marginalized, that trophy hunting is said to be evil, Robbie’s Blood Origins project has given an authentic, selfless voice to hunting. Why it’s “in the blood” speaks importantly to the non-hunting majority and to hunters themselves. What’s your why?

Luke Naylor, Arkansas Greentree Reservoir Management

Lee Kjos, Classic Rock

Grounded from their normally hectic travel schedules due to worldwide COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders, Ramsey Russell and photographer Lee Kjos recount meeting while duck hunting in the epic, 1870s-like Rio Salado Argentina duck hunting destination, but having formed a brothers-from-different-mothers bond over shared appreciation for classic rock music.
