Cody Johnson on Hunting and New Record, Vertical Jigging Spoons for Winter Bass and Raising Bird Dogs and Quail With Whiterock Upland Game Birds
We start thing off with Texas singer songwriter Cody Johnson! He talks about his passion for deer hunting, bass fishing and short but successful career rodeoing. We also talk about the new record “Gotta Be Me”. Lucky for us, too many broken bones in the rodeo arena resulted in Cody switching to honky tonkin’ full time.
Next we head for open water and talk winter time vertical spoon jigging for big bass with Wired2Fish’s Walker Smith.
We wrap up the show with a couple segments on different upland breeds, quail hunting and raising pen raised quail in order to keep your dogs sharp. Whiterock Upland Game Birds’ Corey Robinson shares a lifetime of upland knowledge with us.
Myself, Zane Williams and Corey with a mess of his pen raised birds. Corey talks about keeping his birds as wild as he can and the ways he creates as honest a hunt as possible. Great dogs, great birds and great people.
Christmas Special- Opening Up the Audio Vault With Phil Robertson, Jeff Foxworthy, Nolan Ryan, Ted Nugent, Bo Jackson and Louis Cahill
One of my favorites in recent memory- Louis Cahil of Gink and Gasoline explaining how a soft drink can save a gill hooked fish from bleeding out.
Then we hear a timeless interview with the Duck Commander concerning hunting vs attending the birth of your child. Which is more important? Tune in to hear Phil break it down.
Next, we go back in time and recount Jeff Foxworthy’s favorite deer camp prank of all time! It’s a knee slapper.
In a career that spanned 4 decades as a Major League pitcher, Nolan Ryan missed very few starts. But one unfortunate bite from a coyote meant the Hall of Fame hurler wouldn’t suit up on game day. Nolan reflects on that infamous encounter with a Texas coyote.
Bo knows football, Bo knows baseball and Bo knows bowhunting! Classic interview with one of the greatest athletes we’ve ever seen. The Heisman Trophy winner shares his passion for the outdoor lifestyle in this interview from the audio vault.
Then, it’s one of my favorites with everybody’s favorite uncle- Ted Nugent! You never know what Ted’s going to say.
Extreme Weather Back Country Tips with Aron Snyder, Flounder Gigging the Coast and Bobwhites Go Boom Boom in Back to Back Years
We start off by talking extreme cold weather back country hunting tips and survival with Aron Snyder of Kifaru International and the Gritty Bowmen Podcast. Aron spends over 180 days/nights in the back country each year hunting and testing new gear. He gives us his top tech tips on how to stay warm during that late season back country hunt. From clothing, to footwear, how to stay warm in your sleeping bag and what he uses for ground cover in his tent.
Then we head down to the Texas coast and gig some flounder with Texas A&M Galveston Marine Biology Senior Cody Klindt. The flounder are in the shallows and each cold front provides excellent gigging opportunity for these delicious flat fish. Cody walks us through the gear needed to get in the gigging game and what to look for as far as areas to target large schools of congregating flounder preparing to head out to the gulf and spawn.
We wrap things up by taking a look at the banner quail year of 2016 with the Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch’s Dr. Dale Rollins. Nobody knows more about, or has studied Texas quail more than Dr. Rollins. After back to back population boom years, what does he forsee moving forward? Remember, it was just 3 years ago that quail numbers were so low that there was real concern for the species’ longterm survival as a viable game bird. Dr. Rollins also gives us the latest on eyeworm mortality rates in bobwhites and much more.
