Radio Show Rundown for this Weekend (4/22)

Scott Szafranski of the Linwood Beach Marina on Saginaw Bay is my first guest this week.  Scott says they’re ready for boaters and campers.  He also discusses the perch and walleye fishery on the Bay.

Then, Kenny Slavens of Jays Sporting Goods in Gaylord joins me to talk about what to look for in a ground blind for turkey season.

The hour wraps up with Wendy Scott from the Great Lakes Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau (GoGreat.com).  Wendy talks about the hunting and fishing opportunities in that part of the state.

Mark Romanack of Fishing 411 TV kicks off the second hour of this week’s show.  Mark tells about his recent trips to Lake Erie and the Detroit River for walleye.  He also has advice on how to be more productive while trolling big water.

We’re talking turkey in the next segment with Al Stewart of the Michigan dnr.  Al says the season is off to a good start and reminds us licenses for some areas are still available over the counter.

Jeff Poet kicks off the final hour this week.  First, Jeff wears his Michigan Wildlife Council hat to talk about their “Here for Generations” campaign (HereforMiOutdoors.org).  Then, he switches gears and tells of his family’s store, Jays Sporting Goods.  He describes how they got started and what sets them apart from the big, national outdoor retailers.

Wild game chef Dixie Dave Minar wraps it all up.  This time with a nice turkey recipe.

I hope you like the show.

Radio for September 10/11

We celebrate the unofficial kick off of the fall hunting season this week on Outdoor Magazine Radio.

First longtime friend Greg Abbas of A Way Outdoors joins me to talk about talking with whitetails. Greg and his dad Fred, developed the popular Bowgrunter deer call many years ago and it’s still very popular today. Greg has some great advice and examples of the types of calls to use throughout the season.

Tom Campbell of Woods-n-Waternews wraps up the hour with some last minute promotion of their big Outdoor Weekend in Imlay City.

Hour two features a man I’ve come to respect more each time we talk. Jeff Poet of Jay’s Sporting Goods is my guest. Jay’s is celebrating their fortieth anniversary this weekend and Jeff has some great behind the scenes stories on how the store got started. He also talks about his dad Jay, for whom the store is named, and his passion for the outdoors.

Robert Miller of Michigan Deer Trackn Hounds finishes out the hour. Robert offers a unique service to hunters who are having a hard time recovering their wounded animals. For a fee, Robert will bring one of his tracking dogs out the site of your hunt and put the dog on the last known track. No blood trail is needed, the dogs follow the interdigital scent of the animal. This is a great service that could help recover the trophy of a lifetime. You can reach Robert at (810) 240-4891.

We stay with our Michigan company theme is the final hour of this weekend’s show. Pat McKenna of Ameristep joins me to talk about the history of that company and the products they’re marketing today. Pat’s very excited about their new line of ground blinds and treestands.

Chef Dixie Dave Minar helps me wrap the show up. There’s no recipe this week, instead Dave talks about a Friends of the NRA banquet coming up in a couple of weeks. For details and ticket information you can call Dave at (989) 624-9349.

Another busy fall show. I hope you enjoy it.
