We kick off the month talking about salmon fishing on Lake Michigan with Paul Schlafley of Riverside Charters in Manistee.  Paul says they’re seeing some nice kings already.

Dan Laux of the Michigan dnr is up next.  He talks about preventing wildfires and the benefits of prescription burns for habitat and wildlife.

Fishing is the topic of discussion in hour number three as I talk with outdoor writer and veteran angler Dave Mull (MidwestOutdoors.com).  Dave talks about getting into the rapidly growing sport of kayak fishing.

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

Outdoor Magazine Radio (weekend of 9/17)

An interesting show this weekend on Outdoor Magazine Radio.

First, I talk with the Michigan Conservation Officer who investigated the bear attack in Mackinac County. Kevin Postma says the hunter was forced to shoot the sow and describes how the situation unfolded. By the way, hunter Jeff Starks will join me on next weekend’s show to describe the attack first hand.

Next, Tim Hart of Q1 Buck Pole kicks off this year’s contest. Tim talks about how the contest is run, details on entering and discusses prizes available to hunters.

The hour wraps up with Tom Campbell of Woods-n-Waternews. Tom recaps the big outdoor weekend in Imlay City and has a preview of the next edition of their magazine.

Our second hour features Chuck Keefer of Rack One. Chuck talks about his company’s line of whitetail nutritional products and how hunters can use them to grow bigger bucks. Keefer says Rack One can also be used as an attractant, but unlike some other products, Chuck makes no claims to have “magic in a bag”.

Tony Hansen of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs joins me next. This week Tony talks about the Michigan DNR’s unexpected decision to allow ten and eleven year olds to hunt with a gun this fall. He also describes a new group formed to fight the invasion of asian carp in the Great Lakes.

Our final hour kicks off with veteran outdoor writer Steve Griffin. Steve is an avid angler who has discovered the benefits of fishing from a kayak. Steve describes kayak fishing, how to get started and where to go to enjoy the sport.

As always, Chef Dixie Dave Minar wraps up the show for us. This time he has a tasty salmon recipe, and Dave also reminds us about the Friends of the NRA dinner coming up next week.

Another fast paced show. I hope you like it.
