Wow so much to cover this week and so little time to do it! If you haven’t heard the liberal tree huggin’ vegan hypocrites at PETA recently sent a letter to the mayor of Turkey, Texas (home of Bob Wills). PETA asked that Turkey rename it’s city ‘Tofurkey’ for Thanksgiving Day. So just to prove once again how idiotic these folks are…I called PETA and asked for an interview- posing as a radio show host who supports their backwards views. I think you will find peering into the soul of their organization both funny and sad.
Then we get into some serious blood tracking talk when we are joined by Rod Buvens and Courtney Farris of the National Lacy Dog Association. Today it is illegal to use blood tracking dogs in 22 East, Texas counties. It’s my belief that the ethical hunter does everything in his power to recover a wounded or dying animal. And preventing the use of blood tracking dogs on a lead makes no sense at all. The legislation is outdated and needs to be changed. Rod and Courtney are spearheading that effort. The couple also owns two lacy dogs- a versatile working breed that originated right here in Texas. They make excellent blood trackers, hog dogs, cattle dogs and love working. One of their lacy’s hot on the trail of an archery whitetail.
Next we talk waterfowl with Delta Waterfowl’s Regional Director Travis Sheridan. Travis talks about Delta’s work in Texas as well as upcoming events with the Ft. Worth and College Station Chapters. If you are passionate about waterfowling I encourage you to get involved with a local chapter. Delta turned 100 years old in 2011 and their goal is to ensure that full skies fill the marshes for future generations. One of their projects is getting kids involved with building wood duck boxes such as this one:
We cap things off by checking in with our old friend Captain Len Girard. Captain Len joined us live from the Upper Laguna Madre this week for our coastal fishing report. The reds and flounder are staging for their December and they are hungry! Capt Len breaks down where he is finding them and what he’s using. Gulf coast flounder is one of my absolute favorite dishes. It’s gonna be a great show!
