Dan Infalt is a whitetail hunting junkie, plain and simple. It’s what he lives for. He’s harvested over 30 Pope & Young bucks with the majority of them coming off highly pressured public land. This week, we are thrilled to have Dan back on the show to discuss a variety of topics related to killing mature bucks. Specifically, what are some common mistakes that hunters make during the peak of the rut? We also spend a fair amount of time patterning post rut whitetails. Like some whitetail hunting ninja, Dan has a knack for sneaking up on bedded bucks and putting them to bed- PERMANENTLY. Get ready for one of the best to share his expertise with us.

Greg Hackney is on fire! Not only did Greg win the BASS Elite Series Angler of the Year Title in 2014, he also won tournaments on both the Elite Series and FLW Tour while still finding time to compete on Major League Fishing. But for Greg, it’s all business as usual as he now adds a BASS AOY Title to his BASS Rookie of the Year, FLW Angler of the Year and FLW Forrest Wood Cup Championship. Elite company indeed!

Greg also provides tips on his signature technique of fishing a swim jig. Does he prefer fluorocarbon line or braid? Under what circumstances does he use each? And what about lb test and jig weight? Greg lays it all out for us. Great stuff with one of the nicest guys on tour.

We round out the broadcast by checking in with our good friend and longtime sponsor – Craig Smith of Game Guard Outdoors. Now in it’s 12th year, Game Guard is widely considered to be the official camo of the Lone Star State. In addition to the wildly successful outerwear and fishing shirts, Game Guard recently released it’s signature line of high end leather/Camo luggage and accessories. 100% of the proceeds from this line will go to charity.

Craig talks about the calling to give back and his families’ involvement in the mission field. Also, we have some exciting news to discuss concerning the Gulf Coast Cooler line as well! Of course, we’ll get into some mule deer discussion as well. Big mule deer are Craig’s real passion. He took this one in Colorado this fall:
