Podcast Ep. 231: PF Editor Tom Carpenter on 9 Pheasant Hunting Lessons Relearned

Host Bob St.Pierre is joined by Pheasants Forever Journal Editor Tom “Carp” Carpenter to discuss his feature article from the upcoming fall edition of the PF Journal titled, “9 Pheasant Hunting Lessons (Re)Learned.” This upcoming season will be Carp’s 50th spent chasing roosters and he has boiled down five decades worth of tricks into a list of nine core tips that will help add tailfeathers (and a roostery sag!) to your vest this autumn. 

Episode Highlights:
  • Bob retells the story of a Facebook friend proclaiming Carp as “a national treasure.” 
  • The conversation is filled with terrific discussion about finding public land spots, hunting the “golden hour,” using the wind to advantage, being ready all the time, the importance of confidence in finding birds, and some of Carp’s hunting tales.
During the conversation, Carp expresses his passion for onXHunt as a scouting tool by converting the company name to a verb, “onXing.” If you’ve not yet unlocked the bird hunting secrets of onXHunt, use the code PFQF at for 20% off this year’s membership.
