Gritty Podcast

This is the GRITTY podcast where we talk about ALL things GRITTY. Life is not easy… life isn’t fair, it never was and it will NEVER be. A good life takes GRIT--because the best things in life come from hard work, sacrifice, resolve, determination, and perseverance--because GRIT means never quitting, it means coming back time and time again until you succeed. So on this show we talk hunting, we talk outdoors, we talk conservation, we talk family and life. We talk fitness. And we talk strength. Strength of body, strength of mind and strength of character. Prioritize who you are and who you want to be. Get GRITTY--because life isn’t fair and a little GRIT can make all the difference.
