Get ready for a good one! We kick off this week’s show by visiting with one of the best athletes every to lace up a pair of cleats. Bo Jackson is a Heisman Trophy winner, NFL All Pro running back and Major League All Star Game MVP. But these days, Bo spends as much of his time as possible in the woods, preferably with a stick & string. How does sticking a 10 pt buck compare to hitting a home run off Nolan Ryan or Randy Johnson? Bo also talks about the time he swore Big Foot was going to steal the buck he’d just killed. And of course we find out what hunts are at the top of Bo’s bucket list.
As seen on the recent ESPN 30 for 30 on Bo, he enjoys spending time in his man cave and finds it therapeutic to work on the massive collection of arrows he has acquired over the years.
Then we check in with one of the luckiest hunters you will ever meet. Not lucky in a sense that he doesn’t know what he is doing afield, but lucky as in he won the Texas Parks and Wildlife Big Game Grand Slam hunt package!!! We are thrilled to have Weatherford, Texas native Britton Schweitzer join the show to tell us all about his Grand Slam experience. The 4 hunts included in the Grand Slam are: whitetail, mule deer, pronghorn antelope and desert big horn sheep.
With TPWD issuing only 2-3 big horn sheep permits a year, you can see why that tag is the hardest tag to get in the entire Lone Star State- hands down. The hunts are all 5 day hunts and food and lodging is included, heck even the taxidermy is included! Britton recaps his experiences on each specific hunt including the shocking ending to his desert big horn sheep adventure.

We finish things up talking trout and redfish when our good friend Captain Len Girard joins us live from Baffin Bay. The trout bite is looking good and big schools of redfish are moving into the shallows. We break down what live and artificial baits are really bringing fish into the boat right now. No matter what, there’s never a dull moment with our favorite captain.
