We start out this week’s show talking about the number of Michigan deer hunters. We lost 17,000 hunters in just one year, but the drop wasn’t as severe as some had predicted.

Then, retired Michigan DNR wildlife biologist John Ozoga talks about how whitetail research has changed over the years and shares his thoughts on deer management today.

We switch gears in the second hour and talk fishing with Mark Romanack of Fishing 411 TV and Precision Trolling.

Mark says late fall is a great time to catch trophy walleye and he looks ahead to early season ice fishing for panfish.

Eric Hilliard from the Michigan DNR is up next with details on the Pure Michigan Hunt. He says time is running out to apply for this year.

Brad Dupuie of Apex Marine wraps up the hour. Brad says their Angler Qwest Pontoons continue to gain in popularity and he explains why they’re excited about the acquisition of Polar Kraft Boats.

We’re talking with retired Coast Guardsman, and current charter captain, Joe Marion in the final hour this week. Joe talks about his career on the water and has great advice to stay safe on the ice.

We wrap it up with Chef Dave Minar and a very nice pheasant recipe.

I hope you like the show.
