The first guy they interviewed sounded very accomplished, but I didn't get anything super insightful from it. It was a general approach perspective, which was good, but it kind of seemed like a mile wide and an inch deep. Good, but I didn't think it separated itself from the herd like maybe he was hoping it would.
What it left me wanting was two things:
1) a deeper dive on whats truly sets that hunter apart. For example, I think Mark Kenyon did this on Wired to Hunt podcasts with JoeRE on trail cam strategies and with Andy May (RR7... Although it might not have been on WTH) on attention to detail, particularly as a it relates to bow setup and archery preparation. These were advanced classes, not introductory ones.
And 2) more info from Jesse himself on just what/how he does when he goes in completely blind into areas without even cyber scouting them... What he looks for, what causes him to jump to another property, etc. And what he keys in on to seal the deal.
Pretty much the same thing I thought.
From what I understood, the first guest Caleb, is young, was/is single, and has a job/profession that gives him most of the fall off. Other than that, I didn’t learn what makes the guy so successful.
As far as the host goes - I actually liked his personality better in his new podcast rather than the last W2H one, not really related to the swearing, just more the way he kept saying how easy it was to kill big bucks. Even if it is, you become a heck more unrelatable to the audience when you say so. Here he seemed a little more humble.
As far as the swearing goes, I’m a 3rd generation dairy farmer. I’ve heard it all and I’m pretty fluent myself, but I think he’d get more out of his swear words if he used them more sparingly and at times where they really are needed. Reminds me of one of my Dad’s cousins and another friend of his that he has shared a hunting camp with for 30+ years. I’m pretty sure those 2 guys don’t get to swear at all in their daily lives, so when they get to camp it’s like tearing out a beaver dam. Sound just like Jesse for a few hours until they calm down a little...
