    You can keep the HWX logo, but you have to change Hinderaker to Happe. Paull has been on the podcast long enough to be included in the title.

    I really enjoyed this episode, particularly the Liberal Fantasy Island promo – so many comedic possibilities there. Saturday Night Live should make a sketch out of your idea (not that I think they ever will).

    The Corinthian leather references had me reminiscing about this SCTV sketch in which they parody Fantasy Island, Casablanca, Hope & Crosby road movies, and Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire simultaneously. Unfortunately parts 1 and 3 have been taken off YouTube, but here’s part 2:

    I can’t believe how prescient y’all were about the animal rights activists looking to see who the dentist had donated to.

    Instant masterpiece.

    Given the hype about Cecil the Lion, the time is right for HWX to revive “Manimal”.

    Most states have some form of doe hunting. Usually to control size and quality of deer herds.

    A dentist does make enough to drop $50K for a hunt. I know several that do.

    As for the 40 hours, a PH (professional hunter, or what we call a guide) must track wounded animals, by law or regulations, at least PH ethics.

    Taking a male lion with a bow has got to be one of the most dangerous species to hunt in the world. Brown and Polar bears, Cape Buffalo are up with it.

    Brilliant. Loved the Fantasy Island discussion. You guys are killing it – the GLOP podcast wil have to step it up.

    That Cecil the Lion story part that is not mentioned in North America is that the farm land where the killing happened was Mugabe’s buddy’s tkne from a Zimbabwean. People who are going to hunt should ask for the title deeds of the farm to know who is looking after the place. The dentist probably followed all the rules he thought were correct.

    PH is supposed to rack a wounded animal as Jim Gone Wild says, and there are cases where the hnter gets taken out by usually a buffulo.

    Really enjoy your conversations.
