We start things off when Todd Porter – Secretary of the Texas Lacy Game Dog Association drops by the studio with his dog Bois. The Blue Lacy is the official state dog of Texas and they are regarded as great bay dogs for hog hunters as well as blood tracking dogs for all manner of wounded game. We get into the breed’s history and what these working dogs have to offer the outdoorsman/woman. Me and Bois (short for Bois D’Arc) in the studio.

Then we are joined by longtime outdoorsman Bob Richardson- host of “Scentblocker’s Most Wanted” on Outdoor Channel. We discuss the rut and how it affects buck movement and the likelihood that they will expand their home range for about a month each year when their hormone level is at an all time high. We also hear the story of how Bob was able to put his tag on the legendary Picket Fence Buck- A 194 inch free range typical monster! Lastly, we get into a crazy black bear story that ends up with a 300 lb male blackbear coming into Bob’s ground blind and trying to steal is IPAD- you can’t make this up! It’s all on film and Bob explains what he did to lure the bear so close (too close to be exact!). Bob with the Pickett Fence Buck:

We round out the show talking early winter bass patterns with renown tournament angler and guide Charles Whited of Barefoot Fishing Tours. Where is he finding the big girls and what are they biting on? Lately the key revolves around white bass. Charles explains why that is. The reigning Texas Tournament Zone Angler of the Year also happens to be on a solid crappie bite so we might mix in some slabbin’ discussion as well. One of Charles’ anglers with a recent Lake Austin 8 lb’er!
