Synopsis of Episode 27:
This is a very special week as bow hunting legend Fred Eichler joins the program. Fred is the only man to have harvested all 29 North American big game animals with a recurve. Which animal was the hardest hunt? What’s up with the pink arrows? With a wife who likes to hunt as much as him, who watches their three sons? (Michelle is the CEO of Muzzy Broadheads). Did he ever think he was going to die while on one of his hunting adventures? All that and a whole lot more.
Also, President and Founder of Army Bass Anglers Major Cody Roberson, talks about the history of Army Bass Anglers, it’s mission statement and his love for fishing. Founded in Texas, ABA now has chapters in 29 states! We appreciate all of the ABA’s service to our great country.
Synopsis of Episode 26:
We start things off by diving head first into the Deepwater Horizon oil leak that has shocked the Gulf of Mexico. CCA Texas Excutive Director Robby Byers joins the show to talk about the magnitude and consequences of this disaster.
Then we lighten things up with Chumlee of the History Channel’s hit series- Pawn Stars. Chum probably knows nothing about being an outdoorsmen, but I am a little jealous that he routinely gets to handle and fire some of the world’s oldest, rarest and most valuable firearms. Pawn Stars averages 6 million viewers on Monday nights- and I am sure that we will be entertained by this star of stars.
We will also visit with 16 year old Wesley Brown of Canyon Lake, TX. Wesley joined his father on an Alaskan black bear hunt this summer and we find out how a B&C All Time Record came to be harvested.
Synopsis of Episode 25:
Well, there isn’t much of a debate when it comes to who is the planet’s best bass angler. With 5 Angler of the Year titles and 3 BassMaster Classic Championships Kevin Van Dam is the world’s best. Kevin stops by for a visit and talks about his love for fishing as well as hunting!
What does Kevin look for first when pre-fishing? How does he draw large spawning females off their beds and what bait would he choose if stranded on an island? All that and much more with KVD !!!
Also, for you Texas waterfowlers- Delta Waterfowl’s Director of Coservation Programs Joel Brice talks about Delta’s hands on approach to waterfowl conservation- Predator Control. With an ever changing landscape dominated by farmland in the Prarie Pothole Region, it has become necessary to take out one animal to ensure the survival of another.
This program directly benefits the Texas waterfowler- since Delta is based in the Central Flyway’s northern most state North Dakota. Predator control means more ducks for us in the Central Flyway’s southern most state- TEXAS!!! This week we go in depth into the philosophy of predator control with one of the world’s oldest and most deicated conservation organizations.
