Hunting Gear Discussion With Jason Nickerson and Zack Smith of American Outdoor Brands

July 19, 2023 By: NDA Staff

American Outdoor Brands is home to some of the most recognizable brands in the hunting industry, and among the most popular are BOG and Schrade. It’s getting to be that time of year when going over hunting gear and deciding what you’ll need for the coming season is important, so Nick and The Doctor invited Jason Nickerson and Zack Smith on the show to talk about tripods, backpacks, and knives.

There are new products from AOB in all those categories, including an impressive replaceable blade knife in collaboration with Rage broadheads. In addition to providing great products, AOB is a proud supporter of the National Deer Association.

In this episode’s B-Team Report, one of our hosts attempts to tempt fate by pushing his mower’s gas tank to the limit, while the other once again finds himself needing a wardrobe change! Remember, the next episode is an Ask NDA Anything show, so please send your questions to
