We kick off this week’s show with a very special guest when GoDaddy.com founder and CEO Bob Parsons drops in. Not only is Bob one of the most successful businessmen in the world, but he also is longtime outdoorsmen who is extremely passionate about big game hunting. Last year Bob came under fire for harvesting a problem elephant in Zimbabwe. Elephants are overpopulating Zimbabwe and that causes a major problem for the villages who rely on agriculture to survive. Not only did Bob remove the problem but he also helped feed three villages with this kill. You tell me who the real humanitarian is PETA.
Then we get serious about our state’s rapidly declining quail population when Quail-Tech Alliance founder and chairman Charles Hodges joins us in studio. Founded in 2008, the Quail-Tech alliance has a ranch in over 30 west Texas counties that are dedicated to helping the bobwhite rebound. However, the 2011-2012 season is a critical one and Charles explains the importance of a new management strategy all of us quail hunters should adopt this season. One of the Alliance’s many projects- releasing birds back into the wild such as the banded chick below.
Then we round things out when Ducks Unlimited Dallas’ CO-chairman Keith McDonald joins us. The Dallas chapter’s 2011 banquet is coming up on November 16th and Keith talks about some of the great raffle and both live and silent auction items that will be featured that night. Including a duck hunt with Texas Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland! There are a few tickets left and we will give away a $200 couples ticket for the event live on the show Saturday morning. It’s thru local chapter efforts across the country that DU raises the funds to keep images like the one below happening. Ensuring there are full skies for future generations is what it’s all about!
