Most deer hunters enjoy taking care of their deer herd. Providing food/nutrition is a major part of that. Especially after the rut when bucks have lost an incredible percentage of body weight and are at their most vulnerable. Planting those winter food plots is an essential way to make sure that your bucks have what they need in order to recover. In part 1 of our miniseries on whitetail management- Dr. James Kroll, (aka Dr. Deer) breaks down when we should plant those winter food plots and what kinds of nutrients we should look for in a seed. We also get into protein feeds and when those should be offered as well.
Then a real treat when longtime Dallas radio personality George Dunham of the Bird Dogs joins us in studio. George and some buddies formed this great Texas Country band two years ago and just released their 2nd studio album Fool Hearted Dreams. We will hear a couple of tunes and talk some fishing as the Dunhams love to get down to their Possum Kingdom Lake getaway and wet a line. George and Steve Porcarry jamming out.
We round things out when Justin Beckendorf of Double JJ Outfitters drops in. Justin and his partner Joe having been hunting the Katy Prairie their entire lives. With over 1.5 million ducks and 1 million geese wintering along the Upper Texas Coast it’s no secret that it’s one of the nations premiere waterfowl destinations and we talk about the beauties of hunting such a place. Waterfowl nest success was up 20% across the board this year so now is the time to head to the prairie and take advantage of those full skies!
