Radio for weekend of 12/10

A diverse and fast paced show this week on Outdoor Magazine radio.

I start out talking about my last Outdoor Magazine television show. That show includes video dating back to the late eighties and it was very interesting for me to look back on that part of my career.

Next, Jim Wale of JW Kennels has some great advice on rabbit hunting with beagles.

Then Mark Romanack of the Fishing 411 show talks about why early season ice fishing for perch and panfish can be so productive. He has some great information on locations, gear and techniques for catching more fish.

Also, a very interesting conversation with Michigan Conservation officer John Borkovich. John has details on finding a group of illegal aliens from Mexico involved in an alleged poaching incident in St. Clair County. That bust turned up several illegal guns, and resulted in 29 charges against 5 men.

Tony Hansen of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs wraps up the second hour with a look back at the firearm deer season. He says there are lots of unhappy hunters in Michigan this year and stresses the importance of filling out the DNR hunter survey.

Bowhunting for late season whitetails is the subject in our final hour with Tim Roller of the Wild Addiction TV Show. Tim says hunting can be very tough this time of year and hunters need to capitalize on the primary instinct of whitetails in the late season….their stomach.

We wrap up with wild game chef Dixie Dave Minar. Dave and I discuss our working relationship going back to the early days of Outdoor Magazine. He also reminds us gift certificates to his restaurant are a great Christmas gift idea.

A fast paced show this week filled with lots of great information and tips. I hope you enjoy it.

Outdoor Magazine Radio (10/31)

This week on Outdoor Magazine radio…..

We start out talking about whitetails, and my recent week bowhunting in Ohio. The weather was warm and the hunting was surprisingly slow, but as hunters we need to make the most of such situations.

Next, Bill Pyles of Ohio Bowhunting Outfitters joins me with his thoughts on the lack of deer movement.

The next show segment featured a topic that’s getting lots of attention in Michigan. Dennis Lennox of Cheboygan County told me about a plan by the DNR to ban walleye fishing on Mullet lake next year. He says that’s being proposed because the indians want to increase their catch, and as a result, sport fisherman have to reduce their harvest. We haven’t heard the last word on this one yet.

I wrap up the first hour with Randy Jorgenson of the Woods-n-Waternews.

In the second hour noted outdoor writer Dan Donarski of Hunters Horn Adventures joins me. Dan recently returned from a family safari to South Africa and he shared stories from that adventure.

We also discussed the state of deer hunting in Michigan today.

Next, another respected Michigan outdoorsman….Mark Romanack. Mark was also on the road hunting, but he was waterfowl hunting in Saskatchewan. Mark talked about that trip and his bowhunting adventures back home in Michigan.

Our final hour kicks off with Glenn Duncan of Duncan’s Outdoor Shop in Bay City, Michigan. Glenn is an veteran gunsmith and veteran shooter. We talked about the choices hunters have for deer season and he talked of the perfect Michigan deer gun.

As always, the show wrapped up with chef Dixie Dave Minar. Dave was in a treestand during our conversation, but he had time to give us a tasty venison recipe.

Another busy show….I hope you enjoy it.
