Synopsis of Episode 62:
Well, Saturday April 2nd is the North Zone turkey opener. I have anxiously been awaiting turkey season like so many of ya’ll have, and our old buddy- TPWD Turkey Program Leader Jason Hardin will drop in tell hunters what to expect this season. We had a great hatch last year so expectations should be high!
Then, an authority on crappie joins us to talk about the spring spawn. The slabs are in the shallows and nobody knows how to catch ’em like ‘Mr. Crappie’ Wally Marshall. Never a dull moment with Wally as he gives us some tips on how to take advantage of the great crappie fishing that comes each spring.
It’s no secret that feral hogs are not well liked by farmers and ranchers, they cause over 400 million in damages each year in Texas alone! Poisons have been considered in the past, but a new sodium nitrite based poison could hit the market very soon. Texas Wildlife Service’s Mike Bodenchuk joins us to talk about this poison and a new feeder that is in the works that only allows feral hogs access to the bait.
