This podcast is recorded live, as the action unfolds, on one of many vast ranches in the mountains of the Eastern Cape, South Africa. It is completely unscripted and unplanned. Much like many parts of the USA— farmers in South Africa use trained hounds to help control local predator populations. They do this to reduce predation on their far roaming-livestock and new-born animals. Despite this training, hound success rates tend to be low, but help keep the cats and jackals a safer distance. We learned this from two local hound hunters named Themba and Gogo, who we interviewed spontaneously on the side of a mountain. This is their story.(Robin and his bow-hunting buddy Callum Methley of @kudu_hunt are asking questions)A big thank-you again to Themba and Gogo, to Callum for all the guidance (and catering!) and to Fred Hammer for the heads-up that morning.Don't forget to follow Fred and @kuduhunt on Instagram.-----------------Subscribe to this podcast so you're always up to date.

The homesteading, veggie growing, fish-slaying artist known as Ejler is back! Fishing season is just around the corner — not one to hold his cards close to his chest, in this episode Ejler casually throws down a killer-hand of stories and tactics from the ocean. This is hard-earned knowledge from over 40 years spent fishing local waters in a wooden row-boat, designed and constructed by his own fair hand. If you haven’t had the chance to listen to his earlier episodes, then we we highly recommend you circle back and hear the many adventures that made Ejler the man he is today.A big thanks again to Ejler for being such an open (and entertaining) book!And thanks to everyone listening.

Today we're doing things a little different: 'TWD - In The Field' is a shorter format recorded out in the wild, capturing moments, as they happen. The Wild Dispatch will continue to churn out its 'normal programming' but every few weeks one of these experiential nuggets will pop up in the feed.In this Episode Robin narrates a turkey bow-hunt live, as it happens. Then takes a break to reflect on the first 25 episodes of TWD, the importance of work/life balance, and how much fun it is chasing warthogs in South Africa. Note one story about pursuing a particularly large warthog back in the Eastern Cape who we dubbed Sir. Tuskalot.  Video evidence on Instagram.We'd love your thoughts on this new format.
