Nick Larson is the host and creator of the Project Upland podcast. He lives with his wife, son and English setter in Duluth, Minnesota where he avidly pursues the outdoors with a passion. He spends most of his time hunting, or at least thinking about hunting, grouse and woodcock in the northern forests of Minnesota and Wisconsin.
When he's not upland bird hunting, he truly enjoys spending time at the cabin, reading outdoor literature and continually studying his pursuits. He also enjoys sharing his passions with others as well as interviewing and connecting with those that are deeply immersed into the outdoor lifestyle.
