Asian culture has been eating duck tongues for centuries. After experiencing it for myself recently, I think I’ve found a new favorite part of the duck as far as table fare is concerned.
Greg Pavur jumps on this week’s show to discuss the preparation we enjoyed at his duck camp last weekend. You might be surprised to find out which duck species was the best tasting, they were all good btw!
Next, restaurateur, chef and hunter Michael Hunter jumps on to discuss a variety of topics. Namely, his experience dealing with anti hunting vegan activists who routinely protested in front of his restaurant ‘Antler Bar and Kitchen’.
The Toronto native also gives us his take on the current gun climate in Canada and the growing movement to make the already strict gun laws even more rigid. He also has a new wild game cook book coming out and we hit on that as well.
We wrap up the show with Part 2 of our mini series with Dr. Dale Rollins of the Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch. In this discussion we dive into the the bird dogs that make quail hunting “Grand Opera” as Aldo Leopold once put it.
Cabela’s Public Relations Nightmare, The First Ever Smith Family Deer Hunt Flies off the Rails and Bears, Mule Deer and the Upcoming Dallas Safari Club Convention with Corey Mason
It’s not always as clean and quick as you see on outdoor television these days. Sometimes hunting is messy and it can be something we’re not proud of. While those times are few and far between, it does happen.
And one of those rodeos unfolded a couple weeks ago when I had all three kids and my better half in the deer stand. While there was a happy ending, it was a circus getting there. Albeit one I wouldn’t trade for anything as I feel incredibly blessed to share a hunt with my girls for the first time.
By now you’ve probably become aware of the dumpster fire Cabela’s has been trying to put out regarding the renewal contract they sent one of their pro staffers. Life long huntress and 3 year member of the Cabela’s team Jeanette Hall joins the show this week to discuss exactly what happened.
For a company like Cabela’s (that makes a profit off the hard earned dollars of big game hunters) to mandate pro staffers refrain from posting image of their exotic or African trophies is flat unacceptable. Jeanette explains her reaction and how she believes the Bass Pro/Cabela’s merger has affected the Cabela’s brand and their future. (Jeanette with a Gemsbok she took while on safari in South Africa- the exact kind of photo Cabela’s mandated she refrain from posting on her personal social media accounts in 2019)
The contract renewal that Cabela’s Pro Staff Team sent Jeanette:
We wrap up the broadcast when our old friend and Dallas Safari Club Executive Director Corey Mason makes his return, and boy do we have a lot to discuss! From his recent trip to South Africa to meet with big game policy makers and DSC partners PHASA to an epic mule deer hunt in Texas Panhandle, the class action lawsuit filed by a British Columbia outfitter against the current government due to the grizzly bear ban and of course the upcoming Dallas Safari Club convention- ‘Mogambo’ 2019. We dive in headfirst with Corey.
(Heck of a mule deer! 190 inches of mature grey ghost)
2016 was a banner year for quail numbers and quail hunters alike. But since then the bobwhite has again fallen on hard times. Is it due to weather or other factors like predation or even the increasing number of feral hogs on the landscape, what about parasites?
Our old friend Dr. Dale Rollins of the Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch makes his return to the broadcast to shed some light on the before mentioned topics and why bobwhites are once again on the skids. Dr. Rollins is currently enjoying his 52nd season chasing these sporty little birds
Then it’s the buck everyone has been talking about. The Collin County monster taken by hunter Chad Jones. When I heard the buck was killed in my home county, I figured we needed to hear the tale firsthand.
Thanks to the power of social media I was able to get in touch with Chad and he was more than happy to come to the studio to talk about hunting this once in a lifetime buck. The Green Score was 235 3/8 inches which would put the deer top 5 all time for Texas archery bucks.
