Jonathan Goode:  In Cleveland Alabama, Blount County and a fascinating interview with Mr. John McRae.

Dave Milton:  Yeah and then we called ol’ Randall you know normally he’s in Alabama, and Georgia Mississippi, Tennessee looking at poultry farms, but he was down in PCB with the kids having a good time catching fish and enjoying the beach, but we talked about some great poultry farms, and he always brings good information.

Jonathan Goode:  Yeah and then we wrapped it up with the closer of the Wildman Tim Baker. He was talking about this new program he’s involved with DoeNation Outdoors, and that’s D-O-E Nation Outdoors, and that’s donating some deer to those who are less fortunate.
