Have you ever traveled on an airline with your hunting rifle or bow? Domestically or Internationally? There are some things you need to know on both fronts. Our friend Derrick Ratliff of Horizon Firearms is well versed on each and we are thrilled to have him join the show this weekend as lots of folks are gearing up for bucket list hunts this fall. Tune to find out how to navigate through the red tape thrown at hunters by TSA and international travel with your weapon.
We also are joined by Third Coast Sharking founder and disabled veteran Michael Williams. We discuss his passion for catching, tagging, taking DNA samples and releasing big sharks. Over 50% of the Third Coast team is made up of disabled combat veterans. Randomly, I had the pleasure of meeting and fishing with a few of them on Bob Hall Pier in Corpus Christi last weekend. Michael with a giant PINS tiger shark that was tagged and released.
Then we check in with Dallas Safari Club Executive Director Ben Carter and we discuss the rampant anti hunting and overreaching nature of the USFWS. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service appears to have forgotten who pays their salaries and what their actual purpose of existence is.
