What a show this one was! We got the ball rolling when Dr. James Kroll dropped in for Part II of our miniseries on Whitetail Management During Drought. What should you shoot? When should you shoot them? What about deer and humans increasing contact…will they be viewed as a nuisance in the same way racoons and coyotes are? Great stuff as always with Dr. Deer himself!
Then with Pheasant season upon us I was thrilled to have TPWD Biolgist Todd Montandon join us. Todd handles all the pheasant data for Texas. Todd tells us what to expect this season and mentions a couple counties that are holding the most birds. While the of the drought of 2011 will cause it to be a poor year across the board- there are still some mature birds out there as Maverick found out on our trip last weekend!
If ya like Texas country- then you probably have at least one Kevin Fowler record. As one would expect Kevin’s latest record Chippin’ Away is full of good timin’, honky tonkin’ Texas tunes. But even with a full tour schedule promoting the new album- Kevin found some time to sneak away and drop this 180″ monster! We talk some music and a lotta hunting with one of the greats.
We then round out the show with a very special guest when Duck G of G&H Decoys stops by. Duck G is a 3rd generation owner of G&H, which was started by his grandfather in 1934. Times have changed, decoys have changed. But the folks at G & H haven’t. They’re still American made and family owned and operated. Duck G talks about the evolution of the sport and how G&H has been able to stand the test of time. G&H has proven to be the must reliable and realistic decoys I have found as a dedicated waterfowler. Three generations in the family business (below):
