We get things going by talking snow goose and specklebelly hunting with guide Chris Slemp- owner of Live Oak Outdoors. The longtime El Campo, TX waterfowler breaks down the do’s and dont’s for each species. We talk decoy spreads, calling, shot shell selection, concealment and much more. Then we unplug our guns and hit the spring snow goose conservation season! It’s all things goose hunting coming at ya with one of the best.
Next, we hit the water with Trev Gowdy- longtime host of Outdoor Channel’s ‘Monster Fish’. Trev has spent the better part of a decade traveling the globe internationally and domestically in search of the next big catch. The New Times even called him the most well rounded angler on the planet. All that aside, Trev is as down to earth as they come so we pick his brain on a myriad of topics related to both fresh and saltwater angling.
We round out the broadcast with my ‘Six Late Season Duck Hunting Tips”. In 15 or so years of relentlessly chasing ducks, I’ve come to love the last 3-4 weeks of the season more so than any other time period. Maybe it’s the ice on Belle’s coat, or steam coming off the water…but more likely it’s the thrill of outsmarting late season puddle ducks that really gets my blood flowing. These birds have been shot at for over a 1000 miles, they’ve heard every call and seen every Mojo on God’s green earth. So, decoying these wary birds has become something I take alot of pride in. I’ll talk decoy spreads, motion decoys, hunting a head wind (crazy right?) and offer up a few retriever tips as well.
