We start things off when our good friend and Dallas Safari Club Executive Director and passionate big game hunter Ben Carter drops by. We get his take on the lion situation and black eye that that was dealt to the hunting community after the harvest of a particular lion in Zimbabwe last month. We also discuss the decision of a few major airlines to ban the transport of African trophy animals such as lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. What will the long term affects be? Who are the real losers in this whole ordeal? (Ben with a nice Cape Buffalo- one of the 5 species many major airlines will no longer transport)
Next we check in with an old fishing buddy when Army Bass Anglers Founder and President Cody Roberson joins the broadcast. Cody just returned from ICAST in Orlando, FL (the fishing trade show of all trade shows) where the new products for 2016 were introduced. What technology or products blew him away? Anything he thinks will revolutionize the industry? We also talk about the upcoming ‘Fishing For Freedom’ event on Lake Belton and what is new with Army Bass Anglers. Check ABA out on World Fishing Network. Their hit bass fishing show “Force on Force” airs multiple times a week.
Texas Deer Association President Chase Clark then drops by to give us the latest news on the CWD issue that has completely shut down the billion dollar a year whitetail breeding industry in the Lone Star State. How does Chase feel that Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Texas Animal Health Commission have handled the situation thus far? What about live testing that could potentially save the lives of animals that TPWD says should be euthanized? All that plus we dive into the upcoming 17th Annual TDA Convention and Deer Auction.
Then a real treat when Rock N Roll icon and outdoor personality Ted Nugent makes his return to the broadcast. We discuss division within the outdoor communities ranks, black bear hunting, Africa and whatever else is on the Motor City Madman’s mind.
