We kick off this holiday weekend with a heartfelt thank you to those who have served in the military.  I find it humbling that so many have made tremendous sacrifices so we can have the freedom to enjoy our way of life.

In the second hour Ken Kelly of Michigan based Magna Port  joins me to talk about porting and muzzle breaks.  Magna Port is known as a pioneer in the field of reduce recoil for handguns, rifles and muzzleloaders.

Whitetail fawns are the next topic of discussion as I talk with Michigan dnr biologist Ashley Autenrieth.  Ashley says those fawns might look abandoned but the doe is nearby and she warns against picking up any baby fawns.

Bass fishing is the subject in hour number three as I talk with Gerry Gostenik of Great Lakes Bass Fishing Guide Service.  Gerry says Michigan has some of the best smallmouth fishing in the country….especially on Lake St. Clair.

Outdoor Mag Radio (Weekend of 5/22)

People often ask me how I can talk about the outdoors for three hours each weekend. The truth is, it’s easy. There’s always lots going on in the world of hunting and fishing…and this weekend’s Outdoor Magazine radio show examines several aspects of that lifestyle.

First, Terry Webber of Michigan Stinger lures joins me to talk about his company and products. Stinger is a leader in trolling spoons and Terry explains why spoons are some of the most versatile lures for salmon, trout and walleye.

Then Tom Campbell of Woods-n-Waternews joins me. Tom tells me what to expect in the June edition of the magazine.

We kick off the second hour with audio from an interview I did with the legendary Fred Bear back in 1985. You can see the video of that interview this week on the Outdoor Magazine TV show.

Next, Doug Reeves joins me to talk about bear, elk and whitetail fawns. Doug is the Assistant Chief of the Wildlife Division in the Michigan DNR.

We wrap up the hour with Tony Hansen of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs. Tony brings me up to speed on some key issues coming out of Lansing, including a plan to increase the cormorants killed to protect Michigan’s fish population. Tony also talks about his plans to catch thirty species of fish in thirty hours to bring attention to the asian carp threat.

Walleye expert Lance Valentine is my guest in the third hour. Lance is a fishing guide and the man behind Walleye 101. Walleye 101 is a series of programs designed to teach anglers how to catch more fish. Lance is also known as an electronics expert, so I made sure to ask him about getting the most out of a sonar unit and gps system.

The program wraps up with Chef Dixie Dave Minar. This week Dave and I shoot the breeze about a number of topics, including Dave’s efforts to control cormorants on his pond (with the appropriate permit of course).

Another busy show this week. I hope you enjoy it.
