We get the ball rolling by breaking down “9 Tips for Late Summer Catfish”. The long days might be hotter than heck, but so is the catfishing. Longtime friend Chad Ferguson of North Texas Catfish Guide Service drops in to tell us where to find and catch good numbers for fish fry during the dog days of summer. Drifting, Chumming, Live vs Dead Bait, Punch Bait, Big Flatheads, and Understanding the Thermocline are all on the table for discussion!

Next, we take on the controversial Benjamin Airbow (recently released by Crossman). This weapon projects an arrow, but as you can see in the photo it looks like a gun. So, we’ve invited Archery Trade Association Director Of Government Affairs Mitch King on the show to give us the ATA’s take on the airbow. Do they think it should be allowed during the regular archery season? Apparently this thing flings arrows at 450 feet per second! I will give my opinion as well, plus we take a look at Crossman’s reply to the ATA’s press release on their airbow.

Carp, Gar, Buffalo, Paddlefish??? Do you eat them? Would you eat them? Field and Stream Hunting Editor Will Brantley makes his return to the broadcast and we discuss his article “Fish on A Stick”. These before mentioned rough fish are favorite targets of bowfisherman and Will has tried them all. He tells us which ones are bad, which are good, which one is a true delicacy and even one that is served proudly in many southern restaurants. (Don’t shoot paddlefish in Texas by the way, they’re protected here but are fair game in many other states).

We wrap up by doing a little urban bowhunting for cottontail rabbits and I share a personal story you might find humorous. Lets just say a couple friends from New York City got more than they bargained for when they came and ate at the Smith house last weekend!
