Ian Hurley: When Hunting Clubs Fail & Succeed | The Australian Huntsman Podcast #4

Video description:

In this episode of the Australian Hunters Podcast Chris Waters speaks to Ian Hurley co host of @TheHuntersCampfire podcast and past president of the Queensland ADA branch. During this conversation Chris and Ian talk about Australian hunting clubs, the good, the bad and the ugly. Ian shares his unique insights having been involved in a few different clubs, leading clubs as well as starting his own new venture and has some fantastic insights worth hearing.

What Ian and I both agree on is that it’s important for Australian hunters to be involved in a hunting club. It’s through healthy clubs that you can learn and develop your craft as well as grow and connect with other hunters.
