Episode 87: Willi & Sherry Schmidt
We have another awesome podcast from Western Hunt Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah. Willi Schmidt, host of Pure Hunting on the Sportsman Channel, joins us to talk about how he got into the industry after being a commercial banker for 14 years and how rewarding it is to still be doing the show 7 years later. He also talks about how much the hunting television industry has changed over the years and how he has to focus on so much more as far as social media, writing blogs and doing testimonials, that has now turned into a year-round commitment instead of just a television season. Then we have a surprise guest! Sherry, Willi’s wife joins us to talk about their upcoming move from Colorado to Bozeman, Montana and what the experience has been like to build their dream home. She also shares her perspective as a non-hunter being married to hunter, the experience of seeing their daughter follow in her father’s footsteps & why she has so much respect for hunters and the hunting community.
