Show Rundown for 7/28

The first hour of this week’s show features Ohio hunting guide Bill Pyles of Ohio Bowhunting Outfitters. Bill is a friend of mine who runs a first class bowhunting operation in the central part of the Buckeye State.

Here’s an example of the quality bucks Bill is keeping an eye on this summer.

Next, Derrick Poet of Jay’s Sporting Goods joins me to talk about getting ready for the fall bow season. Derrick has some great suggestions on new gear to check out.

Then Kent Wood of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs talks about a new threat to guns and shooting in Michigan. Kent has details of a court decision that jeopardizes commercial shooting ranges.

The final hour kicks off with “Michigan’s Mr. U.P.”, Dan Donarski. Dan is a veteran outdoorsman and outdoor writer with strong opinions on a variety of hunting and fishing related issues. He also runs a booking agency for top quality African hunts called Hunter’s Horn Adventures.

We wrap it up with Chef Dixie Dave Minar. This time Dave has a very nice salmon recipe.

A fast paced show filled with lots of great information. I hope you can join me.

Radio Rundown for This Week’s Show (7/21)

I kick off the show talking once again about Asian carp. I’m in the minority, but I’m not convinced the sky is falling and I ask the question why this issue has dragged out so long with no action.

Then Eric Sherwood of Whitetail Select joins me to talk about food plots and how the hot, dry summer has affected them.

Tom Campbell of Woods-n-Waternews wraps up the hour. Tom has a preview of their next edition, including the first hand story of a family stranded on Saginaw Bay during a recent fishing trip.

Hour two features veteran angler Jim Felgenauer of the St. Clair Chapter of Sturgeon for Tomorrow. Jim is an avid sturgeon angler and he has great advice on fishing for the prehistoric creatures.

Tony Hansen of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs is up next. This week Tony has some early information on an issue regarding shooting ranges that could prove to be a big threat to shooting in Michigan.

The final hour kicks off with fishing guide Mike Schultz of Schultz Outfitters. Mike is a flyfisherman who concentrates on southeast Michigan rivers. Mike says it’s been a tough summer because many streams and rivers are very low from the lack of rain.

Next I talk about a picture released by the Michigan Wildlife Conservancy of a cougar they say is from the Upper Peninsula.


It’s interesting to note, that picture attracted more attention on the Outdoor Magazine Facebook page than any other previous post.

We wrap it all up with wild game chef Dixie Dave Minar. This time the chef has a very nice lake trout recipe.

This is a very busy, and interesting show…I hope you like it.

Show Rundown for 7/14-15

An interesting show coming up this week on Outdoor Magazine Radio.

First, I tell the story of a recent fishing trip on Saginaw Bay where my granddaughter decided to be the distributor of night crawlers from now on.

Then, Ted Harpham of Darton Archery joins me with a look at their new bows for the fall hunting season.

The hour wraps up as I draw the winner of this month’s Ameristep Carnivore ground blind. Congratulations to Jason Skeen of Douglas Wyoming.

Hour number two features one of the most riveting conversations I’ve had on the show. Dave Mull, editor of Great Lakes Angler Magazine, talks about sinking his fishing boat on southern Lake Michigan. Dave spent three and a half hours in the water before being rescued. If this happened to Dave, it can happen to any one of us and there are some great lessons to be learned from the accident.

The hour wraps up with Tony Hansen of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs. Tony brings us up to speed on the latest outdoor news and information out of Lansing.

Chris Keefer is my first guest of the final hour. Chris is one of the stars of the Back Country Quest and Dropped:Project Alaska TV shows on Sportsman Channel. He’s also an owner of the Rack 1 Whitetail System.

Chris talks about using his products to grow a healthier deer herd and addresses the question of whether it’s legal to use in Michigan.

The show wraps up with wild game chef Dixie Dave Minar. This time Dave has one of his classic walleye recipes.

A very informational and interesting show. I hope you like it.

Rundown for July 7/8

Summer continues to fly by as we kick off the first full weekend in July.

First, Lake Michigan charter captain Paul Schlafley of Riverside Charters joins me with a live fishing report from the water. Paul’s clients had a couple of big king salmon on the line while we were talking, which added to the excitement level of our conversation.

Next Tom Campbell of Woods-n-Waternews joins me. Tom was taking advantage of a small lull between editions to work on some food plots.

The second hour features musky fisherman and avid sportsman Jim Felgenauer. Jim says I’ve become “cynical” about the Michigan DNR and we talked about the relationship between that department and it’s constituents these days.

Tony Hansen of MUCC wraps up the hour. Tony has details on the 75th anniversary celebration of his group. He also talked about the controversial land cap bill in Michigan.

Outdoor writer and expert outdoorsman Tom Lounsbury joins me in the third hour of this week’s Outdoor Magazine show. Tom tells of fishing for smallmouth bass on small farm creeks and rivers. He also has advice on mid summer woodchuck hunting.

And speaking of woodchucks, the show wraps up with a very tasty woodchuck recipe from wild game chef Dixie Dave Minar.

Another fast paced and informational show. I hope you like it.
