Now that ice fishing season is here, we kick off this week’s show with advice on staying safe from retired Coast Guardsman Joe Marion. Joe is also an avid ice angler and has some great suggestions for preventing an accident on the ice.
Then Karl Ieuter of the Ieuter Insurance Group dispels the rumor that your vehicle isn’t covered while on the ice.
We continue the ice fishing theme in hour two as I talk with Mark Romanack of Fishing 411 TV. Mark has some great advice for targeting panfish and other species on first ice.
Next, Brian Mastenbrook of the Michigan dnr has an update on the December elk hunt. He says the department uses the hunt as a management tool to control the elk population, but for a lucky group of hunters, it can be the hunt of a lifetime.
The hour wraps up with Ed Roy of the Michigan Wildlife Council (HereForMiOutdoors.org). Ed has an update on the “Here for Generations” campaign to promote hunting and fishing in Michigan.
Coyote hunting is the topic in the final hour of this weeks show as I talk with Blaine Bailer of Jays Sporting Goods. Blaine is a veteran predator hunter and has great advice on getting started.
We wrap it all up with Chef Dixie Dave Minar. This week the chef has a very nice rabbit recipe.
I hope you like the show.
