712169ef-691a-4003-a690-3666f7e2d0ad Host Bob St.Pierre is joined by MeatEater’s Ryan “Cal” Callaghan for an entertaining conversation that took place during National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic 2022 in Omaha. Known for his big game adventures on MeatEater, the host of Cal’s Week in Review dives deep into his love for Labrador retrievers, bird hunting, and wild upland places.   

Episode Highlights:
  • Throughout the episode, Cal marks his journey in the outdoors through the lives of four female yellow Labrador retrievers.  
  • Cal also talks about the harrowing experience to save his new pup, Snort’s, life after a rattlesnake bite in the deep Idaho wilderness last September.  Every bird dog owner who hunts “Snake Country” should listen and learn from this one.  
  • The guys close the episode with thoughts on the Grasslands Act and the panel Cal moderated during Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic devoted to the legislative #ActForGrasslands concept.
