    Does pineapple belong on pizza?

  • Mitch's avatar

    Curious about that famous smoked venison chili?

  • Wicked's avatar

    What brand/ product are you most excited to see/ use in 2022. Yes I’m baiting you on insider knowledge…..

  • PinBall's avatar

    Is a hot dog a sandwich? Is cereal soup?

  • RKE 🏕️'s avatar

    @Jim I’m not @Brad, but no!

  • Matthew's avatar

    What’s your favorite piece of gear other than you weapon

  • Mike's avatar

    Watch your 6 man….

  • William's avatar

    Did u get bear this year

  • Brad's avatar

    @Jim ham pineapple and bacon is my favorite pizza and I will not apologize

  • Brad's avatar

    @Mitch https://timetogowild.com/stories/gowild-recipe-smoked-venison-chili

  • Brad's avatar

    @Wicked I’m not allowed to give the one I’m most excited about… but I will say I am super pumped about these new Tactacam Reveals. They seem legit.

  • Brad's avatar

    @PinBall a hot dog is a hot dog. Cereal is only soup if you take too long.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Bradley Hatcher https://timetogowild.com/stories/gowild-recipe-smoked-venison-chili

  • Brad's avatar

    @Dave Henson I would love to do a caribou hunt in Alaska. @Cody is making me jealous today with that trophy.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Dave Henson To give you a sense of security.

  • Wicked's avatar

    @Brad aww the suspense is killing us! Tactacam Reveal 2.0 is 🔥🔥 tho!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Matthew my favorite gear I’ve bought lately would be these Irish setters. Super comfortable and surprisingly warm

  • Brad's avatar

    @Mike oh I welcome that fella to come this way

  • Brad's avatar

    @William have not been out bear hunting

  • David's avatar

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

  • David's avatar

    @Brad I'd like to see a video of that fight!

  • Brad's avatar

    What has been your hardest lesson learned in the field? Example - my daughter pulled up on a doe and the bolt was popped up just enough the gun misfired. Lesson - keep the bolt lock on and always check before firing.

  • Amos's avatar

    What’s your favorite advice to give to new hunters?

  • Brad's avatar

    @Brad probably just patience. I’ve been busted so many times from lack of patience. Moving around, leaving the stand too early, shooting a doe on opening day of gun 😂 (that one was fine but shows my point).

  • Brad's avatar

    @Amos quit worrying about shooting something or making mistakes and just get out there and see what happens. It’s ok to get busted. It happens to literally all of us.

  • Amos's avatar

    @Brad thanks! 👊🏻

  • Brad's avatar

    @Cory Fels Favorite movie all time is hard man. O Brother Where Art Thou comes to mind so we will roll with that. And my favorite brew is Kentucky Breakfast Stout by Founders

  • Brad's avatar

    @Cory Fels indeed. It’s more of a dessert than breakfast. Aged in bourbon barrels and has chocolate hints

  • Jim's avatar

    @Brad congratulations… you’ve passed the first test…

  • Little's avatar

    Dang, I'm missed out on this... I would have asked what is your favorite phase of the deer season to hunt?

  • Brad's avatar

    @Little the pre and peak rut for sure!

  • Aaron's avatar

    I would really like to know how you make your chili! It’s sounds delicious! @Brad

  • Brad's avatar

    @Aaron link is above!

  • Aaron's avatar

    Thanks man!

  • William's avatar

    Ok

  • Ted's avatar

    How did you get started hunting and in the outdoors

  • Brad's avatar

    @Ted been in the outdoors my whole life. Started riding fourwheelers as soon as I could ride a bike 😂. Started shooting with my papaw at 6, fishing at about that age with my dad and started small game hunting with my dad at 12

  • PinBall's avatar

    Which @Charles album do you like more, How the Mighty Fall or Seneca?

  • Brad's avatar

    @PinBall too soon to say but Seneca is amazing. I have only listened to the new one a few times

  • Dan's avatar

    When will the t-shirts get back in stock

  • Brad's avatar

    @Dan SOON! We’ve re-ordered. Maybe 2 weeks at most

  • Brad's avatar

    FYI this post is from a few days ago but I’ll totally do this again tomorrow

  • Dave's avatar

    @Jim yes

  • Dustin's avatar

    Whats your favorite hunting cartridge

  • Shane's avatar

    @Jim no. Never. Ever. Ever. Ever. Gross. I just shot a pineapple and it is just gross

  • Keith's avatar

    Is there a way to share a link to posts?

  • Vernon's avatar

    If you do nothing, how do you know when you’re finished?

  • Dominick's avatar

    Any plans to add camera gear to the app? I'm a hunter, but a professional wildlife photographer. Would be cool to add my camera gear here. Love the app! Awesome community here.

  • Kyle's avatar

    What are the action items or takeaways from the survey you put out a while back? Was it helpful?

  • N's avatar

    Preferred gun for squirrel hunting? .22 lr rifle or shotgun?

  • Dave's avatar

    I have the HD fury binoculars. The edge to edge clarity is not great but I love having the range finder in the binocular.

  • Adam's avatar

    Trophy or meat?

  • Brad's avatar

    @Dustin just picked up a 6.5 Creedmoor. First year hunting with one but I’m projecting a winner

  • Brad's avatar

    @Shane pineapple pizza for the win

  • Brad's avatar

    @Keith not right now but we are working on this

  • Brad's avatar

    @Vernon when you realize time is finite

  • Brad's avatar

    @Dominick we used to have some. Not sure if it’s still there. Try uploading some custom gear

  • Brad's avatar

    @Kyle honestly I haven’t heard yet. I think @Zack is looking at that info. The surveys are always helpful though they help us make the app more of what people want

  • Brad's avatar

    @N shotgun but I often wish I had my 22 when I go out with a shotgun 😂

  • Brad's avatar

    @Adam I go for a good bucks in archery and through the first weekend of gun. Then it becomes about the freezer for me.

  • Mike's avatar

    Have you heard that deer carry COVID-19?

  • Ian's avatar

    @Brad What’s your favorite book? Or even top 5? I constantly read & looking to expand my library & knowledge. Thanks.

  • Robbie's avatar

    Why are pants called a pair of pants when it’s just one?

  • Brad's avatar

    @Mike I saw that. Not too worried about it personally. We already knew animals could carry it so doesn’t seem like a concern to me 🤷‍♂️

  • Brad's avatar

    @Ian my favorite business book is Creativity Inc. It’s about the founding of Pixar and how they built a great culture. Other great business stories are Shoe Dog (founding of Nike) and That Will Never Work (Netflix). As far as novels I loved anything by Cormac MacCarthy, and The Dog Stars and The River by Peter Heller are excellent too

  • Brad's avatar

    @Robbie because pantaloons were originally a matching pair of legs

  • Kristopher's avatar

    @Brad GoWild expanding into outdoor TV? Videos submitted by members as the episodes, could be multiple videos to make up an episode, hosted and commentated by you…or me…I have a face for TV and a charming personality. Go from showing one video to the other with commentary in between that closes out one and intros the other. Thoughts?

  • Travis's avatar

    Are you hiring? Haha

  • Brad's avatar

    @Travis we were but the role was filled!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Kristopher super fun idea but we are at capacity already with the current content we manage. We have some stuff in the works for 2022 that will be fun

  • Travis's avatar

    @Brad well dang haha. I'm new her (second day I think). I've got a comp science background and love hitting the field.

  • Kristopher's avatar

    @Brad looking forward to it.

  • Jack's avatar

    Biggest deer you ever shot

  • Tarra's avatar

    What do you think the future of outdoor media will be?

  • Brad's avatar

    @Jack I don’t score them but I have a good 10 point hanging in our conference room

  • Brad's avatar

    @Tarra I think something like GoWild will be critical for the social. I think you’ll see more private equity firms buying up old namesakes and power house brands and turning them into subscription or advertising monsters

  • Ian's avatar

    @Brad Thanks Brad. Much appreciated. I’ll be looking into all of those recommendations and getting some new reading in.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Dave Gray that sucks, it definitely happens

  • Cowboy's avatar

    Ok, i know i am quite late to the party but will there ever be a trail for memes? And do you prefer .308 win or 30-06 spring? I am more of a .308 guy.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Cowboy 😂 memes are welcomed on any trails. And I love a 30-06, I have hunted mostly with that caliber. Just switched to a 6.5 Creedmoor

  • Cowboy's avatar

    Ok, 30-06 is the gun that my bro wants wants, it is what my grandpa and my sensei shoot too.

  • PinBall's avatar

    @Brad

  • RKE 🏕️'s avatar

    @PinBall forgot that the meme had been updated

  • Brad's avatar

    @RKE 🤷‍♂️

  • Brad's avatar

    @Cowboy yeah honestly it’s a classic round.

  • Jack's avatar

    Are you guys planning on hiring more positions anytime soon?

  • Brad's avatar

    @Jack not in the near future unless you want to be Sasquatch at the great American outdoor show for a weekend 😂

  • Jack's avatar

    @Brad I mean that could be a strong possibility but not what I had in mind 😂. Thank you for answering and if I’m the future you want to hire more let me know!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Jack 😂 sorry that’s the best I got right now

  • David's avatar

    @Brad as long as there's free food, I'll be Squatch. A short one but I have the long hair. 😂

  • Roy's avatar

    Unintentional consequences by John Ross. Is a great read. I was so caught up in the book I lost track of time.

  • RollTruck's avatar

    Would you rather go fishing or hunting @Brad ???

  • Brad's avatar

    @RollTruck hunting unless it’s saltwater.
