Outdoor writer and former Charter Captain Mike Gnatkowski is my first guest this week. Mike tells the story of leaving his home state of Michigan to move west and work for a big outdoor retailer. Mike talks about the hunting and fishing opportunities in the west, and why he decided to move back to the Great Lakes State.

Then, Michigan’s Meteorologist, Mark Torregreossa joins me to talk about the changing weather patterns and Great Lakes water levels.

Hour 2 kicks off with Tom Nelson of The American Archer TV show.

Tom talks about how he got started in the world of outdoor television, why he loves bowhunting and his passion for the Pope and Young Club.

MUCC Executive Director Amy Trotter is up next.

She has details of the recent Michigan Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus meeting and also an update on proposed commercial fishing legislation.

Matt Pedigo from the Michigan Wildlife Council wraps up the hour with an update on the “Here for Generations” campaign.

Retired Coast Guardsman and current Charter Captain Joe Marion is featured in Hour 3 this week.

Joe talks about the fishing on Lake Michigan so far this season and has some great advice to stay safe on the water.

Chef Dave Minar wraps it all up.

This week he has a very nice turkey recipe.

I hope you like the show.
