Michigan bear hunting is the opening topic this week as I talk with UP bear guide Johnny Bowler. I’ll be hunting with Johnny in September and we discuss some details of what to expect from that hunt.

Then, Tony Soave tells the story of how he got a Michigan bear tag AND an elk tag for this fall.

“Catfish Andy” Brennan kicks off hour two this week. Andy is a fishing guide for big flathead catfish. He says that species doesn’t get the respect it deserves and has some great tips on how to catch them.

Next, Jason Wolverton from the Forward Corporation talks about his involvement in the upcoming “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign to fight breast cancer. He also has details of a promotion involving Michigan Brand Meats that can save you lots of money at the gas pump.

We switch gears in the final hour and talk deer season prep with Tim Roller of Whitetail Journey. Tim says it’s never too early to get ready for the season. We talk about food plots, trail cameras and more.

Wild game Chef Dave Minar wraps it all up once again. This time Dave has a very nice salmon recipe.

I hope you like the show.
