Episode 6: Otters, Wolves, and Adventure at Camp Hackett with John McDaniel

On this episode of the WWIA Podcast, WWIA Founder and CEO, John McDaniel is on-site at Camp Hackett, WWIA’s Northern Healing Center in Wisconsin. John has come to Camp Hackett to do some required “housekeeping” at the property, to ensure it is in optimal condition for the Purple Heart Heroes who visit the Camp for our world-class sporting events, but also for the wildlife who frequent this 410-acre sportsman’s paradise.

Another purpose for his visit, and the underlying subject of this podcast episode, is John’s attempt to fulfill a lifelong dream of trapping an otter. This episode follows John’s over a series of days in the Northwoods as he talks about the challenges of trapping, wolves and other animals in the local area, understanding animal behavior, adjusting to the environment and weather conditions, as well as the pleasure of the pursuit as he brings us along on his adventure to fill an otter tag.
