This week we get the ball rolling by talking urban bow hunting with renown outdoor writer and 2nd Amendment activist Frank Miniter. In addition to having a recent New York Times Best Selling book “The Ultimate Man’s Survival Guide” – Frank also pens regular columns for Outdoor Life Magazine. His recent piece ‘Greenway Ghosts’ provides useful information and tips on how to gain access to private land in urban settings and ultimately nail that big neighborhood buck.
One thing is for sure, whitetails have proven very adaptable and are even thriving (often to the point of becoming a nuisance) in many suburban neighborhoods throughout the country. Bowhunting opportunities for giant urbanized bucks are becoming more and more available in Texas. Frank with a great urban whitetail taken in 2011.
Next a very special guest drops by the studio. Cody Cannon is the front man for the great East Texas southern rock/country band Whiskey Myers. He also happens to be an avid bow hunter and big time bass fisherman. We talk bucks, bass, bowhunting and hear some brand new tunes off of the band’s upcoming album “Early Morning Shakes” which comes out February 4th 2014.
A couple of these tunes of Whiskey Myers’ 3rd studio album have never been heard on the radio – so get ready for some brand spankin’ new music and passionate outdoor talk with one of Texas premiere singer/songwriters. Cody rockin’ out with us in studio:
We then round out the show by talking some duck hunting with Mike Gee of the Wingsport Depot. Mike and his partner Ed are longtime duck guides and upland outfitters. We are thrilled to have them sponsoring our October Photo of the Month Grand Prize and one of our lucky listeners will get to take a buddy on a guided duck hunt with Mike and Ed. The Wingsport Depot also specializes in bringing quail hunts to your ranch which includes the birds, dogs and guide.
Pretty cool stuff to be able to hunt quail in areas where they used to be abundant but have since faded away from particular landscapes. Check out the Wingsport Depot Duck Hunting video! Be sure to email us your best outdoor photo for a chance to win the 2 man duck hunt!
