Podcast: Durrell Smith of Minority Outdoor Alliance


In this episode, Reid again sits down with Durrell Smith of The Gundog Notebook to discuss the complex role that race has played in the bird-hunting culture of the American Southeast. Recognizing the sensitivity of the subject matter and a history that has indeed included racial stratification, Reid and Durrell lean into some tough questions. The duo take an honest look at the roles relegated to African-American men on southern quail plantations, the value of that heritage, and how to learn from and celebrate aspects of that heritage while acknowledging what aspects are ripe for change. They also discuss the fruitful common ground that a love of hunting and dogs cultivates.
