Hunt2fish Outdoors is a new and exciting podcast service by Ken Scicluna that just came online this year in 2017. Ken’s vision is to share the celebration of the outdoor lifestyle with anglers and hunters who really want this information.

Ken was inspired to begin his podcast at the age of 18 after hearing the broadcast of Bob Bauer’s Outdoor World on the radio. He remembers what it was like to have to work on Saturdays when everyone else was in the outdoors. He found the Bob Bauer radio show to be a great way to get through the day.

Ken started fishing as soon as he was able and eventually, expanded to hunting as well. Now that podcasting has come of age as a medium, he saw the opportunity to promote the outdoors, similar to Bob, whom he admires.

My thanks goes out to both Ken and Co-host, Dom Guzzardo for being great at what they do and asking me to join them for a podcast.

Look for more great content to come from Hunt2Fish Outdoors soon.
