The Mossy Oak GameKeeper Podcast Presents “The Reelfoot Lake Tragedy”

Reelfoot Lake tragedy podcast

The GameKeeper Podcast is aimed at teaching and sharing compelling stories with hunters of all types. The three hosts, Bobby Cole, Lannie Wallace, and Dudley Phelps provide hours of entertainment, mostly at each other’s expense, and plenty of nuggets of wisdom on the outdoors. The three sit down with a new guest each week to talk turkey, deer, waterfowl, property management, southern folklore, and more.

In late January, the duck hunting community was shocked when the news broke out of Reelfoot Lake that two duck hunters had been killed, and a manhunt for the alleged killer was underway. Rumors ran rampant, especially when the body of the suspect was recovered. Now that the dust has settled, we've learned the truth is different than what rumors led most hunters to believe. But the murders still leave many unanswered questions. The GameKeeper Podcast welcomes Outdoor Life Senior Deputy Editor Natalie Krebs, who interviewed the only witness, and other Reelfoot hunters, to write a very compelling story of the events that occurred that fateful day. A GoFundMe has been set up for the families and funeral expenses of the two men who were killed.

A good friend of mine recently asked if I would like to try his take on a cucumber Tzatziki sauce to try with one of my recipes. Of course, I said yes. To achieve the two goals of wild game and wood-fired smoke flavor, I decided to take two of the 8-ounce elk medallions from the GameKeeper Butchery.
