We get things going by visting Oklahoma Game Warden Dru Polk. How has the recent flooding affected the landscape and fishery of Broken Bow/Beaver’s Bend Oklahoma? With 9 out of 10 anglers visiting Broken Bow hailing from Texas, this little fly fishing gem holds a special place in the hearts of many Texas anglers. But with entire stretches of trophy trout streams washed away, what does the future hold for Broken Bow? Game Warden Polk explains why it’s not at all a bad thing.
Then we are joined by Texas Parks and Wildlife Spokesman Steve Lightfoot to discuss the positive Chronic Wasting Disorder test that was found in a Medina County whitetail deer. What is TPWD’s protocol as we enter these uncharted waters? Steve tells us how the agency plans to deal with this unfortunate news and the importance of keeping the disease contained.
Then we are joined by pro bass fishing legend Tommy Biffle. Tommy specializes in shallow water fishing and so we go shallow for summertime lunkers. Many anglers focus on deep water this time of year but Tommy explains where to find shallow summer bass and how to catch them.
We round out the broadcast by discussing the importance of using trail cameras as a management tool. Not only for your whitetail herd, but also for all existing wildlife on your property. Stealth Cam’s Ben Smith chimes in to give us his thoughts on how trail cameras have revolutionized the way we hunt and manage wildlife.
