Synopsis Of Episode 46:
This week is gonna be a diverse one. Off the top we visit with our old buddy from the Texas Coast, Captain Pat Hunt. Captain Pat has been fishing Corpus Christi Bay and the surrounding areas since the mid 1950s. Needless to say he is still whackin’ the redfish at a pretty good clip. Where are the trout this time of year. What wintertime bait is the most effective for both trout and reds? All that and a lot more with Captain Pat.
Then with the December 4th Pheasant opener less than a week away and with Maverick and I loading up the truck and heading West on Friday I figured we better find out what to expect this season. Nobody knows more about our state’s roosters than Texas Parks and Wildlife Upland Game Bird Program Leader Robert Perez. TPWD has been conducting surveys throughout the Panhandle since the late 1970s and Robert will tell us what this year’s results mean. We also cover the history of the Ringed Neck Pheasant in Texas. When was it introduced and why?
We round out this week’s broadcast with a very special guest- Texas Rangers hurler Tommy Hunter drops in. Tommy is not only an avid outdoorsman, but his 13-4 record was good enough to lead the majors in winning percentage. An integral part of the best Rangers team in club history Tommy is currently en route to Mississippi in hopes of taking a monster whitetail. Other off season plans include duck hunting with Mitch Moreland Ian Kinsler and possibly hog hunting with Cliff Lee…sounds like a blast. Also, where the heck did the claw and antlers originate? Should be a lot of fun with a genuine good ‘ol boy!
Synopsis of Episode 45:
This past week I was able to harvest my first buck. A Montague County 8 pt at Goin Day Hunts. My friend Don Gresham invited me back out to his place in Forestburg and Don joins the show to visit with us about my hunt and Goin Day Hunts. The Greshams have had this land in the family for well over a century and I was honored to head out there and share their little piece of paradise.
Becky Clark of Rustic Reminders Taxidermy and GR8 Mounts also stops by to talk taxidermy with us. It’s very important that you take special care of any trophy animal you plan on taking to the taxidermist. Becky reminds us of some of those important details that often get overlooked. GR8 Mounts have also donated 3 awesome mounts that we will give away on the show including: a whitetail shoulder mount, a full body bobcat mount and a whitetail euro mount. Be sure to listen to the podcast to find out how you can have your trophy mounted for FREE!!!
Shawn Roberts, Regional Field Supervisor of the National Wild Turkey Federation drops in to give us an overview of the NWTF. The great thing about this organization is that so much of the money raised stays in your state and with your local chapter. I am thrilled to be involved as we look to get a chapter going in McKinney. If you have any interest in conservation and making a difference then contact Shawn as we always want to add to the 75 NWTF chapters already in Texas. Shawn with a beautiful spring gobbler:
And of course November means bucks and ducks are on the brain, but it also means that Sharelunkers are usually being caught on Lake Fork. Our Lake Fork guide Heath Hardwick checks in to give us a detailed report on what the big ones are hitting and where. It’s gonna be a great show.
