First, wildlife biologist Chad Stewart of the Michigan dnr joins me with a preview of what to expect from the upcoming deer season.  He also talks about the biological and social impact of the youth hunt and has an update on CWD and TB in the Michigan deer herd.

Hour two kicks off with Conservation Officer Lt. Jeremy Payne.  Jeremy says they’re looking for more officers and describes what it takes to be a modern day Game Warden.  He also has some advice on staying legal in the field this fall.

Paul Yauk is up next.  Paul has details on the Michigan trail system and the upcoming national trails week program.  You can learn more about the trail system at Michigan.gov/trailsweek.

We wrap up the hour talking about pheasant hunting in Michigan.  Ken Dalton is on a crusade to get the DNR to release pheasants on state land and the movement is getting some support.  You can follow the project at mphi.info.

Matt Pedigo is the featured guest in hour number three this week.  First, Matt talks about the Michigan Wildlife Council and their “Here for Generations” campaign (HereforMiOutdoors.org).  Then, Matt puts on his Michigan bear hunters hat to discuss the state’s bear population and the number of tags issued by the DNR.

Chef Dixie Dave Minar wraps it all up.  This time Dave has a very nice squirrel recipe.

I hope you like the show.

Radio Rundown for the Ides of March

There’s an interesting mix of guests and topics this week on the Outdoor Magazine.

First, television producer and veteran whitetail hunter Tim Roller joins me to announce the  University of Whitetail.  Tim has teamed up with another well known deer hunting expert John Eberhart on a series of intensive, video based seminars to help hunters be more successful.

Then, Tom Campbell of Woods-n-Waternews talks about the April edition of their widely read outdoor magazine.

Hour number two features expert angler Mark Romanack of the Fishing 411 TV show.  Mark talks about late season ice fishing and looks forward to the open water fishing season.

Kevin Swanson of the Michigan dnr is up next.  Kevin is  wildlife biologist in the Upper Peninsula.  He talks about plans to improve whitetail habitat there and has an update on how the deer are doing during this rough winter season.

The final hour of this week’s show kicks off with veteran surf angler Bill Olar.  I know we’re a few weeks away from fishing open water, but I just can’t talk about ice fishing anymore.  Bill has some great advice on how to fish big water without a boat.

We wrap it all up with Chef Dixie Dave Minar.  This week he has another very nice fish recipe.

Great guests and good information…I hope you like it.
