Next we are joined in studio by Collin County bow hunter Cody Griffin. In back to back seasons Cody has taken Boone and Crockett caliber archery bucks on his families’ 200 acre homestead. These also happen to be the ONLY bucks he has ever killed. Talk about lightning striking twice!!! Cody breaks down the details of each hunt and how a rare force of nature resulted in deer showing up on the family farm in the first place. Up until 2013 Cody had never seen a deer on the property. (Cody and I in studio with both his 2015 and 2016 bucks)

We wrap things up by discussing the fall migration of waterfowl and how this past week’s cold front will affect migration trends. Ducks Unlimited’s Chris Jennings sheds some light on not only that topic but also global warming and increased agriculture’s affect on longterm duck migration trends.
