Urban hunting is a term that we have heard of but, don’t know much about. So, we decided to track down someone who is a self-taught urban bowman to explain all the inner-workings of hunting in the burbs. Taylor Chamberlin joins us to discuss the benefits that hunting within city limits has on the habitat & other wildlife, the keys to urban hunting including access, travel patterns and property limitations, and the amazing program “Hunters For The Hungry” that feeds the less fortunate in Virginia.
