It’s not always as clean and quick as you see on outdoor television these days. Sometimes hunting is messy and it can be something we’re not proud of. While those times are few and far between, it does happen. And one of those rodeos unfolded a couple weeks ago when I had all three kids and my better half in the deer stand. While there was a happy ending, it was a circus getting there. Albeit one I wouldn’t trade for anything as I feel incredibly blessed to share a hunt with my girls for the first time.
By now you’ve probably become aware of the dumpster fire Cabela’s has been trying to put out regarding the renewal contract they sent one of their pro staffers. Life long huntress and 3 year member of the Cabela’s team Jeanette Hall joins the show this week to discuss exactly what happened. For a company like Cabela’s (that makes a profit off the hard earned dollars of big game hunters) to mandate pro staffers refrain from posting image of their exotic or African trophies is flat unacceptable. Jeanette explains her reaction and how she believes the Bass Pro/Cabela’s merger has affected the Cabela’s brand and their future. (Jeanette with a Gemsbok she took while on safari in South Africa- the exact kind of photo Cabela’s mandated she refrain from posting on her personal social media accounts in 2019)

We wrap up the broadcast when our old friend and Dallas Safari Club Executive Director Corey Mason makes his return, and boy do we have a lot to discuss! From his recent trip to South Africa to meet with big game policy makers and DSC partners PHASA to an epic mule deer hunt in Texas Panhandle, the class action lawsuit filed by a British Columbia outfitter against the current government due to the grizzly bear ban and of course the upcoming Dallas Safari Club convention- ‘Mogambo’ 2019. We dive in headfirst with Corey. (Heck of a mule deer! 190 inches of mature grey ghost)
