We start things off by talking public hunting opportunity in Texas with our TPWD Public Hunting Director Justin Dreibelbis. We find out how the funds created from our public draw system are appropriated back into hunting and conservation. How many applications does TPWD get every year? What are some of the public draw opportunities? How much funding is created? All that and much more! (Desert Big Horn Sheep taken by the 2015 Big Time Texas Hunts Grand Slam winner).
Then we are joined by Taylor, Texas native Kelton Malish. This young man is pioneering the sport of spear fishing from the bank. He makes his own spears and posts videos of his spear fishing adventures on social media. The lifelong outdoorsman talks about how he found a passion for this type of fishing and how he hand makes each spear. Looking forward to trying my hand at it with a Kelton Malish original spear that he sent me!
Then we wrap up the broadcast with me offering up some advice that might help our listeners bag that big buck this season. Hand corning was a key factor in me taking the biggest archery buck of my life last weekend. The big ones get smart for a reason and sometimes avoid feeders all together. But they still feel comfortable coming to a hand tossed bait bile. (I chased this buck for two seasons before arrowing him at a hand corned bait site opening weekend of archery season)
