In this episode, I talk with Brad Luttrell, one of the founders of the outdoor app GoWild. GoWild is an application for both the iOS and Android platform that is built by outdoors people for outdoors people. This is an app designed to be used by hunters, fishermen, and anyone else who enjoys outdoor activities. Unlike some of the larger social media platforms that remove hunting or fishing content, GoWild is all-embracing of it as are the people that use it.
Brad also does a podcast called Restless Native and you can access the website www.everrestless.com). When the app was released in 2017, there were articles that interviewed Brad and discussed the application. Here are links to them:
