Its monster crappie right out of the gate this week when our good friend and 6 time Crappie Anglers of Texas Angler of the Year Paul O’Bier drops in!Paul gives us the latest news from the Crappie Anglers of Texas Tournament Trail and their upcoming state championship on Lake Palestine. Of course we also get Paul to tell us where he is finding good numbers of big crappie. What depth, are they relating to structure, what type of structure, is the morning or evening bite better and what bait is he using??? Paul tells all. So get ready for some slab daddy insight from the Lone Star State’s best.

Next a very special in studio treat when one of my favorite country musicians joins us in studio! Granger Smith will be here to talk about his love for growing big whitetails, predator hunting, big bass, catfish and much more. We also discuss his latest record “Dirt Road Driveway” which has done extremely well both in his home state of Texas as well as on the national scene. We also take a listen to a couple tracks off the record including the latest single “If Money Didn’t Matter.”

Of course, if Granger Smith is here then that means the dip spittin’, stick whittlin’, frog giggin’ Earl Dibbles Jr. is right here with him. Granger talks about how the Earl Dibbles Jr. phenomenon came about. You might be surprised to learn that Earl is a pretty close representation of a couple of Granger’s uncles from central Texas! So pull up a stool and get ready to crack a few cold ones with Earl Dibbles Jr. Yee Yee!

We then round out the show with another in studio guest when Phillip Morris swings by the studio. Phillip is on the pro/field staff of quite a few well know companies in the archery industry. He is a seasoned bowhunter and competitive shooter, and he has accomplished all of this while being born deaf. Speaking through his friend Donny who is translating for us, Phillip talks about tackling that challenge head on, in life and as a hunter. His love for the outdoors and archery is matched only by his desire to be an example for other deaf individuals whom he hopes to inspire to pick up that bow or rifle and join in this outdoor lifestyle we all love.
