The Orvis Hunting and Shooting Podcast
The Orvis Hunting and Shooting Podcast (formerly the Double Barrel Podcast) with host, Reid Bryant brings you hunting and shooting tips for more success and fun in the field.

Ronnie Smith and Susanna Love join Reid for a conversation about canine psychology, mindset, and some of the lessons they use to enhance both. Ronnie and Susanna are owners of Ronnie Smith Kennels, and they have collectively trained thousands of dogs in the methodology that began with Ronnie's late father and Uncle Delmar Smith. Ronnie and Susanna have taken dog training to a remarkable new space, looking for ways to leverage a positive canine mindset for maximum result in the training environment and in the field.

On the eve of Reid's first hunting junket of the season Reid spends a bit of time with Matty Rawlinson of Owens Valley Wingshooting. The two discuss Matty's early days afield in the UK, the differences between UK and US shooting styles and perceptions, and even the nuances of load efficiency. Not to be missed is the segment on Snipe, a species for which Matty has a soft spot. Enjoy!


With upland bird season already underway through much of North America, Reid chats with Durrell Smith of the Gundog Notebook, discussing all facets of hunting, shooting, guns, dogs, and the upland aesthetic. Durrell Smith is an artist, art teacher, and avid gundog owner who has immersed himself in his passion for all things hunting related. Reid and Durrell wander in and out of their shared stories of a late introduction to the sporting life, finding ample common ground and shared interests. Enjoy!
