March 29, 2023 By: NDA Staff
Dave Maas and his son with a deer taken on public land.

It’s hard to beat a good, old deer hunting story. Imagine sitting around a campfire with the drink of your choice in hand as you listen to this podcast episode with our guest, outdoor writer Dave Maas. Dave is the editor of Bowhunting World and Archery Business magazines for Grand View Outdoors, and he joins the show to talk about his profession and how he got to where he is now. Dave also shares some great deer hunting stories, including one from a recent hunt with his dad. He even offers some pointers for anyone interested in trying professional outdoor writing.

In this episode’s B-Team Report, Nick learns yet another lesson the hard way while The Doctor can’t seem to stay on his feet as winter refuses to loosen its grip in his neck of the woods. This is also an Ask NDA Anything episode and our hosts answer questions about rubs and changes to the opening day of the Pennsylvania firearms deer season. If you have an Ask NDA Anything question or a B-Team story, you can send them to nick@deerassociation.com.
