We kick off this week’s show talking about bear hunting with Keith Shafer of the Michigan Bear Hunters Association. Keith says the state’s bear population is expanding further south, but still needs to be protected from overhunting.

Then outgoing member of the Michigan Wildlife Council, Matt Pedigo talk about his time on that group and what they’ve accomplished over the past seven years.

Hour two features Glen Duncan of Duncan’s Outdoor Shop in Bay City. He talks about the ongoing ammo shortage, the challenge of getting guns for his customers, patterning a turkey gun….and much more.

Nick Green from MUCC is up next. Nick describes the ongoing battle with anti hunting groups over a possible Michigan wolf hunt.

We’re talking fishing on southern Lake Michigan in Hour 3 this week with Captain Russ Clark of SeaHawk Charters out of St. Joe. Russ says the steelhead fishing in the river was slow this spring but coho action on the big lake has been good.

Wild game chef Dave Minar wraps it all up with another great fish recipe.
