Rundown for the Last Weekend in April

My first guest this week is a guy I called “the most interesting man in Michigan”.  His name is Bill Hoffman (WCHoffman.com) and he’s a writer, podcaster and avid turkey hunter (among other things).  Bill talks about the world of outdoor podcaster and has some advice for Michigan turkey hunters who need more action than our state can provide.

Then, Michigan dnr Law Division Corporal Dave Painter joins me to talk about the practice of  turkey “reaping”, also known as “fanning”.  There’s been a lot of confusion in Michigan about whether it’s legal.  Officer Painter has the official word from Lansing.

Hour two kicks off with Steve Winters of the Bowfishing Association of Michigan (BowFishBam.com).  Steve talks about the popularity of bow fishing and has details on some upcoming tournaments.

Amy Trotter from the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (mucc.org) is up next.  Amy talks about proposed legislation that would make it tougher to bring in deer carcasses harvested in other states to help prevent the spread of CWD.

The final hour features Tim Roller of Tim Rollers Outdoor Journey.  In honor of the opening weekend of trout season we’re talking fly fishing in Michigan.  We also talk turkey hunting and walleye fishing as well.

As usual, we wrap it up with Chef Dixie Dave Minar.  Dave has another turkey recipe this week.

I hope you like the show.

We start out this week’s show talking about Michigan’s whitetail herd with researcher Sonje Christensen.  She’s involved in a five year study to determine the impact of the EHD outbreak in 2012.

Then Tom Campbell of Woods-n-Waternews joins me with a preview of their July edition and an update on their upcoming Outdoor Weekend.

The whitetail theme continues in our second hour as I talk with Michigan dnr biologist Chad Stewart.  Chad describes the expansion of the CWD zone and concerns that EHD might be a problem again this summer.

mucc Deputy Director Amy Trotter is up next.  Amy talks about the role of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs and how hunters and anglers need to be more involved in the political process.

Outdoor writer Steve Griffin is my featured guest in the final hour of this week’s Outdoor Magazine show.  Steve talks about our recent walleye fishing trip on Saginaw Bay and takes a look at how hunting and fishing have changed in Michigan.

Wild game chef Dixie Dave Minar wraps it all up.  First, Dave has the good news of his success in the Michigan elk drawing.  He also has a very nice grilled fish recipe.

Interesting guests and lots of information this week on the show.  I hope you like it.
