Over the past few weeks I have been sent quite a few videos and trail camera images of bucks exhibiting rutting behavior into late February and early March. Are does really going into estrous this late in the winter? Is there a 3rd whitetail rut that hunters don’t generally acknowledge? Texas Parks and Wildlife Whitetail Deer Program Leader Alan Cain makes his return to the show this week. We discuss what exactly is the cause of these recent instances of bucks fighting way past the typical breeding season.
Next, we dive into my first handgun hunting success. We do it with our good friend and longtime handgun hunter Razor Dobbs. We take a look at the history of the 10mm caliber and some of the most effective loads currently available to handgun hunters. Razor has taken 3 cape buffalo with this caliber and is one of the most respected authorities on the caliber and handgun hunting in general. (blackbuck I took at Koon’s Canyon Ranch with a 10mm Pistol, Vortex Razor Red Dot and Hornady XTP 180 gr bullet)
Then we spend some time with Phone Skope founder Cheston Davis. We get into the new Skoped Vision line as well as the all new Pyro Putty. As a backcountry hunter, I am really excited about the capabilities of this fire starter. It’s something I believe will eventually end up in every backcountry hunter, angler and hiker’s pack.
