Kacey Edwards moved to Tennessee from Florida for a nursing job at the start of the pandemic. Despite the timing, she found a husband and a welcoming trapping community in her new state. While Kacey was working night shifts as a nurse, she made an effort to get her young dog out for exercise during the day, usually at the farm she was trapping on. That led her down the path of training a bird dog, which Kacey talks about in this episode. Plus: bobcat meatballs, coyote recipes, shopping for "dog bones" in Ghana, and boykin spaniels.
