Nick Larson is the host and creator of the Birdshot Podcast. He and his family, which includes a pair of English setters, reside in Minnesota where he grew up and fell in love with the outdoors. Naturally, his favorite pursuit is upland bird hunting dating back 25+ years from his humble beginnings as a “partridge” hunter. Today, he chases adventure across the uplands wherever his bird dogs and the people he connects with inspire him to go.

Avid pheasant hunter and shooting coach Bob Brotzel joins the show to discuss his hunting season so far and his involvement in youth shooting sports.

A lifelong upland bird hunter and experienced shooting coach, Bob Brotzel has much to share when it comes to chasing birds and coaching shooters. Bob began honing his craft with a single shot .410 while growing up on a farm in South Dakota. Today, Bob shares his passion and his knowledge with his student athletes and individuals interested in becoming better shotgun shooters and upland bird hunters.
