Samuel  Ayres
Red Bluff, California
Bio: I’m an outdoor rookie in most every sense of the word. I grew up in the suburbs of Southern California where my exposure to the outdoors was pretty much solely encapsulated in a yearly trip to the Sequoia National Forest. I began my blog turned podcast years ago in an attempt to share my love for the “country” lifestyle and activities and, because of my passion for hunting, it quickly became focused on the hunting and outdoor lifestyle. Since then, it has continued to grow and my audience has followed along with my journey into the outdoors.
