We all know how tough public hunting in Texas is. Our state is 95% privately owned so public hunting opportunities can be few and far between. We’ve all driven by a beautiful piece of private property gazed wistfully at a tank full of greenheads or a flock of turkeys in a field…and how we long to hunt that property, knowing it’s unrealistic. Or is it? Our buddy and outdoor blogger Noah Van Hochman (The Outdoors Guy) gives us his tip on how he frequently gains permission to hunt those desirable tracts of private land. Noah’s Website
If you haven’t heard, the hunting community was dealt a heavy blow by the California senate and HSUS last week. Backed by the HSUS, the senate approved a bill that would outlaw the use of hounds to hunt bear and bobcat in California. This bill would ultimately put alot of hardworking outfitters out of business. One of those outfitters is Dean Collins of Clavey River Guide Service. He joins us to talk about the dire situation threatening to destroy his livelihood, way of life and heritage. Make no mistake, the Humane Society won’t stop in California and they won’t stop with hounds. Their goal is outlaw all hunting in this country. Here is Dean with a couple of his hunting buddies and a California black bear.
We then round out the broadcast when STI Guns President & CEO Tim Dillon stops by. STI is based out of Georgetown, TX. Their guns are Texas made and the company is employee owned.
