We get things going this week by checking in with Joe Baker of GeoBallistics and the BallisticsArc Calculator. If long range shooting is something that intrigues you then you won’t want to miss out on Joe’s expertise on the subject. We not only talk about what goes into dialing up a long range shot, but also what things a shooter needs to consider in a long range caliber. Be sure to check out the BallisticsArc App – it might sound intimidating, but if Cable can do it so can you! (I was hitting steel with ease at 700 yards after a few minutes with the GeoBallistics crew).
Then we check back in with Captain Len Girard who is finally back on his feet after a serious accident. Nearly two months ago, Captain Len fell and suffered a ruptured spleen that nearly killed him! So we are certainly glad he’s on the road to recovery and are thrilled to be talking bay fishing with everybody’s favorite captain once again.
Next, we talk off season whitetail management with our old friend Dr James Kroll – AKA Dr. Deer. Prescribed burns, spring planting, timber harvest are just a few of things we get into. Also, 31 states have experienced a decline in whitetail population since 2000. We get Dr. Deer’s take on that alarming trend as well. Plus we’ll discuss the upcoming 13th Annual Dr Deer Field Day in March.
We wrap up the show by talking snow geese hunting and conservation season with waterfowling legend Duck G. The 3rd Generation owner of G&H Decoys has been around for 82 seasons and has witnessed the evolution of the sport like neither you or I can claim. Duck talks about the good old days on the Katy Prairie, the changes in decoys and camo, lead vs steel shot and much more. Never a dull moment with the salty old duck hunter.
