  • Loved the episode with the Jersey boys!
    Brought me right back home as I grew up in north west NJ. I think I possibly went to high school with this Joel you spoke of as well. I would just like to extend and offer to any Jersey guys and you of course, that would like hunt the mountains in Colorado for dusky grouse, possibly ptarmigan, and pheasant in the eastern plains. Just bring your dogs!
