Brian, I just heard on a recent podcast about some guy who doesnât like your podcast and says he is unsubscribing after 2 years. My question is this. Why did it take him 2 years to figure out he didnât like the podcast? His beef had something to do with you doing tech reviews and such. Anyway, I want to say that I enjoy all your podcasts very much. I love how you donât sugar coat anything. You tell everything how it is even if it sheds a negative light on your skills and abilities. You are not afraid to be who you are, and share your experiences with other in an attempt to at least inform others. Keep up the gear podcasts. Keep on keeping it real, and stay Gritty!
And still the standard bearer for hunting podcasts. Itâs not just about rehashing hunts, itâs about getting ready for the hunts and methods for doing it. Much better at gear review than all you jackwagons thought heâd be and is an authority on nutrition and exercise to get ready for days on the mountain.
Tired of listing to Brian and his rants. No one wants to listen to Brian Call at beginning of the podcast and what your daily life entails, or how money doesnât bring happiness and what movie you just watched. Stick to hunting and outdoor related subjects. We are listening to hear your guests speak and what skills and ideas they would like to share with us. I would rather listen to most boring Kifaru Cast - Podcast ever released all day long for a week, then have to hear Brianâs voice talk about his Low T or hormone doctor. Hopefully you have a day job because this will eventually fizzle out for you.
I have been interested in archery and bow hunting for as long as I can remember. I never had the money to start shooting when I was a kid. Now that I am on my own Iâve been spending all my money on learning to shoot and all that, your stories and the people you talk to have inspired me beyond imagination to hunt. I canât wait to go on my first hunt. Each episode I consume feeds my hunger to collect my own meat even more. Thank you for all your values and positive educational stories!! Keep up the good work. Keep bringing more hunters into this world with true ethics and morals. Thank you thank you thank you!
Iâve been enjoying this podcast far too long to not write a review. Itâs encouraging for me to get listen to good people with a strong voice in the hunting community. Keep up the great work guys! Thank you for representing hunters well.-Jason
Brent, Iâve seen you a handful of times at the MTN OPS gym. Iâm goin to start your workout program!! Brent Smash! Love the podcast guys! Been a huge motivator for me in various aspects of life. Question for either of you, Iâve been needing to step up my physical activity a work on some weight loss. My biggest struggle is finding the motivation. I can take supplements etc for the energy when Iâm tired but what do you do for the mental drag?? Thanks guys! Stay gritty!
I love your podcast! Thanks for keeping it real and really interesting. -Lindsey in TX
If you donât agree with local laws itâs okay just break them! Brian says so.
Was much better when it was the gritty bowmen, other than the DC outfitter stuff thereâs not a podcast in the last 6 months Iâve actually gotten through. Finally unsubscribing. Brianâs whiney rants are too often anymore.
Quality went down hill after Snyder left, but I hung on. Then once he said he doesnât feel like killing an animal illegally if it is feral is a big deal, he lost me completely.
Lots of information from lots of different folks for lots of different folks. This podcast has lots to offer and no ones perfect. I do disagree with Brianâs as well as his peers perspective on ranching. Many times now you guys bring up raising livestock and generally itâs in the form of factory farming. Thatâs not the whole livestock industry and you are speaking out of place when you say this. With out ranches we could not sustain hunting, in no way could we maintain the population or the native grasslands if we all hunted for our produce. So please either step off your high horse of i brain call are more ethical than thou or educate yourself so you can actually speak on the topic. Ranching communities do far more for native grassland restoration and contribute heavily to game populations all across the U.S.
Brianâs calm demeanor and extreme passion for all things hunting makes this one of the best, most unique, hunting podcasts out there. I appreciate the wide range of topics he covers, his insightful guests, and continued drive to make his show even better. A must listen. If you donât like Brian and this podcast then youâre the problem!
Your podcast is great and I appreciate all the hard work you do to create great content. Please please please tell us when the interview starts.
Great podcast for everyone. Has good content for learning even if you already know. Yes maybe there is some episodes that donât interest me personally but I just donât listen to that whole episode and listen to the ones that do which is most of them. Keep up the great content Brian. Grittybroman you freaking crack me up man. You always have something funny to add. Love it guys and stay gritty!
I love your show, I love the content you keep putting out, and Iâve learned a lot from you and Aron, and my wallet has suffered checking out all the gear you use lol! As strange as this is and sounds watching you and Aron and learning from you both I feel a connection like a friendship if you will. I appreciate all you do and continue to do, you put all this info and gear reviews out for us for free and I appreciate that! Thank you for being gritty and for staying Gritty. Gritty fan for lifeNick Webb SPC United States Army

I caught onto this podcast about a year ago or so, and itâs my go to podcast for everything outdoor related. There are a bunch of other podcasts out there that are great and focus on great things, but I find Gritty to be fairly all encompassing in regards to hunting, archery, the outdoors, conservation, and life itself. I donât ever feel like youâre stepping out of your element when youâre discussing new topics, and Iâll say you have a lifelong fan. So ignore the haters, and as long as you all keep producing, Iâll keep listening! Stay Gritty, and thanks for all the good information and all you do for the lifestyle!Mike L
Iâm not an avid listener of the show but I do tune into certain episodes. Brian does what he wants with each show and tells it like it is!!! Itâs refreshing to hear someone bring up health related issues!! Iâm 35 now but plan on hunting till the good lord calls me home. Keep up the good work and stay Gritty!-Chase (Florida listener)
Brian, it was great catching up with you at the hunt expo. Keep up the great work. I truly enjoy your content and positivity! Your short film release at the expo was phenomenal and for me, really hit home. We never know what life has in store for us and we have to live our life as if it can be taken away tomorrow. We are not owed anything in this life. Hard work will be rewarded and noticed. Thank you for your sincerity and honesty! Stay GrittyBrad Hunt
Hey brian whats up. Ok ill just get right to it. You are to sensitive period. I used to look forward to listening to you but now I have to listen to you and your brother whine about people talking about you for 15 minutes before each show. Bottom line you are arrogant. You do assume you know to much but who cares. Go back to the old brian. Listen to rogan quit reading the comments including mine. Im gonna give you a three star just because of all the whining before each show
Gritty thank you for all of the free content that we all listen too regardless if we agree. You have passed along tons of info and given us access to individuals that are experts on topics you discuss. Hats off keep it up. I love the comments you address at the beginning of the episodes. Stefan
Gritty show is great all these bad comments are just people wanting to hate.like my momma said if you ainât got nothin good to say, donât say anything at all. If you want great info about brands good hunt stories and just all around great conversation then give this podcast a view!
I wanted to take a second and thank you for all the free context you put out each week/month/year. Iâve got to be honest, you and a few of your buddies seem to only give authentic advice that doesnât feel biased or sponsor driven. From Sitka to mystery ranch to Crispi .... the list goes on and on with products that youâve recommended and Iâve gone out and purchased with 100% satisfaction. Iâm even looking at upgrading to Valkyrie next. For a new hunter like myself, this podcast allows me to avoid certain pitfalls and quickly improve on my hunting skills faster than I would have by learning it on my own. Please put out some gear, so that I can buy a few shirts to pay you back for all that you do for us.Thanks again for everything you do! Keaton Payne
Iâve been listening since the beginning. At first I really liked the dynamic between you and Aron, at first. But then it started to bug me that Aron was âcensoredâ and I always felt like he was holding back. And sometimes Brian sounded a little preachy to me. Then the split! And I was like crap now I have to make time for twice as many podcasts. I donât listen to every Gritty episode any more. However when I see a guest or topic that interest me I give it a listen and Iâm never disappointed. What I used to take as Brian being preachy I now see as a man who has a family and a faith and who isnât afraid to put them first. As a former USMC combat engineer from Oregon Aronâs sense of humor really hits home with me. But every once and a while Brian makes a funny that makes me laugh. So like I said I donât know if I like Brian. But I know I donât dislike the guy or his podcasts. So I guess Iâll just keep listening and leaving some 5 star reviews.
Brian thank you for all of your content I am pretty sure I have listened to pretty much all of your podcast and love every video you have put out! It has been a joy learning and growing with you as I have taken in all of the info you have available! It is extremely valuable to have people like you and others to learn with and enjoy while working wishing I was on a mountain somewhere! Forget the haters and my God bless you and your family keep up the great work! Kaylub
Keep up the good work guys! Realize that youâre never gonna make everybody happy, though you guys obviously strive for it. I just want you to know that I appreciate your show and every time I see a new episode has been updated I get so stoked!! Thanks a lot, Iâve listened for a while and I realized I have never let you guys know...-Pete Hust
Really enjoy your podcast. Iâm amazed what I have learned in the past few weeks, and I have been bow hunting over 30 years. Steve Dinkelman
Steve Rinellaâs âAmerican Buffaloâ was about a bison hunt that took place in Alaska not Canada, and if I remember correctly they were not part of a herd that migrated. They were part of a herd that was transported, and released in that area.
I canât say enough good about Gritty. Iâm amazed that he is the same guy I imagined as the guy I met. He may be too humble, when I tried to comment on how much I enjoyed his podcast all he could say is âI know some people get a little heated by it but itâs who I am.â Thanks for being the man I imagined and keep making great content. âStay Grittyâ
This could be a great podcast but it doesnât make the hunting community look very good for them to be constantly promoting a hunter who has been accused of poaching in Australia. He (Adam Greentree) is yet to be proven innocent and yet to even make a statement about these charges. You are the company you keep.
This podcast is a Game Changer! If it was gear it would be bomb proof. One hundred percent! Sorry I had to. In all seriousness, I do like the guests and the variety of topics.
Iâm not diggin the 10-15 minutes at the beginning where your answering question, get to the podcast, do a separate questions podcast
Brian,I listened to the podcasts on masculinity and hunting with Ryan Michler, I know you and I have commented back and forth and you know I love the podcast and listen to it daily! I especially loved both of these and I completely agree! One thing I thought was pretty cool was how you and your brother talked about the previous podcast from 2017 ATA with Aron Snyder and Kristy Titus. I was actually there and wish I could have heard the part about the fight A-Aron had with his friend live. Thatâs hilarious! Thatâs how I am with my friends but you can also tie that into this podcast about masculinity. Modern day society is very weak for the most part. You know our grandparents and parents fought with their friends like that when they were growing up and it was nothing to see them get up laughing bloodied and bruised. Iâm glad thatâs how I was raised. Anyways thanks for everything you do! I look forward to your podcast every day! Only thing is I miss the intro-pep talk and the epic quote at the end but I know you got to mix it up! Stay Gritty!
I have listened to the podcast for roughly 2 years now . And loved it at first as you continue you have gotten further and further from the idea in my opinion . I understand this podcast is yours and you should do what you want with it . But please stop giving tech advice Brian . You are no where near knowledgeable enough to be recommending arrow set ups or usages of certain releases . Please stop with the tech advice . Talk about hunts and get people who are knowledgeable with tech on the podcast . But for now Iâm unsubscribing and in following as I have been seeing you regurgitate things you have heard and not do it with the justice needed you are going to create huge issues for people down the road . Good luck .Jesse
Selling my 07 jk because Iâve found the 93 cruiser is superior.
I bought a bow with the intention of trying my hand at bow hunting in Colorado this coming season. I have learned a lot about being an ethical and efficient hunter listening to Brian and his guests. Next time you are in Colorado, let me buy you a beer to say thanks for all the education. ðð¼
I started listening to Gritty Podcasts after listening to one of Joe Rogans podcasts on predator management. I now listen to the Gritty podcast almost every day listening to the old episodes, and keeping up with the current. Brian Call and his team do an excellent job on informing the public on conservation and what the true definition of a hunter is. They always have awesome stories to tell about there experiences that keep you listening. You learn a lot about how to hunt certain species and how truly difficult it is to be a bow hunter. The Gritty team has inspired me to push myself to be a better bow hunter and will inspire others as well. I can go on and on about this podcast! Thanks for all you guys do! Stay Gritty!
Really enjoy the podcast but Brent needs to stop trying to be cute with everything he has to say, its obnoxious. The recent episode with Aron Snyder all the condescending comments Brent made in the beginning were derailing of the topic at hand and were just annoying. My Instagram is travismccollum if you feel the need to respond. I think itâs great youâre going on this journey together as family but when it comes to topics as touchy as predator hunting there needs to be a level of professionalism as well as acknowledgment and understanding of the oppositionâs feelings. Without that we are simply building a bigger divide between our groups which is not the answer.
I have been hunting a few years now .this is my first year has a bow hunter through the ups and downs of my first season ,I have found a new meaning of my own life and harvesting a animal I have found a new respect for any animal I have the opportunity too hunt /harvest .Through your words and conversation I believe I have found a better understanding of my own life.Thank you
I just recently got into hunting and went on my first bow hunt this last season. I didnât even get an animal and Iâm hooked. This podcast gets me really excited for next season and gives awesome information about hunting, gear, fitness and everything in between. Iâm so happy I was able to come across this and gain more knowledge in bow hunting and hunting in general. Awesome stuff!
Iv always enjoyed listening to your show but not that you do the negative and positive reviews itâs even more sweet! The voices your brother does of the reviews are priceless. Please continue to do that in your shows and keep up the good work!
Looks like great guy with guts to hunt hard !
Great info, good flow, and the best intro ever. Always fires me up!
Covers a wide range of hunting topics. Never a dull moment. Thanks for all the great content
Great podcast that shows multiple points of view and introduces listeners to new products, new ideas, and talks through controversial topics. Brian is an awesome interviewer by doing a great job asking questions to keep the conversation going and shows he really loves his platform. Brian is a great guy in person, I meet him at the Mtn. Ops headquarters in July after Total Archery Challenge in Big Sky, MT. I just said âHi, love your podcastâ, he then took 30-45 minutes out of his day to talk about backcountry hunting and archery! Thanks for this content, keep it going! I am a dedicated listener!
Iâm new to the elk hunting game and Iâm trying to soak up as much content as possible. Gritty Podcast is really worth the listen. Lots of tactics and strategy talk plus lots of entertainment too!
Good information on hunting, archery, backcountry, and life philosophies. Some occasional episodes are more fluff than subustance but overall Gritty is well done.
I have been subscribing and listening for about a year. The content is informative, inspiring and also fun. I was in fact sitting in the rain on top of a PA mountain last Saturday, without rain gear, freezin', bow at the ready, and so badly wanting to bail out, but chanted in my head "Be gritty, be gritty, be gritty. . . .".
Proud of yâall and the way you present the love of our outdoors! You are bringing good content and strong ethics to the hunting and outdoors community! Keep up the Strong Work!
