This Week on Lone Star Outdoors!

No Comments

We start of this week’s broadcast by heading to Louisiana to talk redfish with longtime Louisiana Captain Kirk Stansel of the legendary Hackberry Rod and Gun Club. Calcasieu Lake is famous for the brackish water that holds redfish by the tens of thousands. We discuss the unique fishery and one of Captain Stansel’s favorite preparations – redfish throats. Don’t throw them out, throw them in hot grease!

Then, our good friend and Dallas Safari Club Foundation President Richard Cheatham drops by the studio. We run the gambit on a variety of conservation topics with Richard. Specifically, why do hunters shy away from the term “trophy hunter”? What can we do to reverse the negative connotation associated with that term? Richard gives us his first hand observations of what occurs on the  Dark Continent once a Westerner harvests an animal.

Richard then discusses the Foundation’s purpose and how it chooses to allocate the conservation dollars that the club raises. I am also really excited to have Richard unveil the “Hunt for Life” initiative that the DSC Foundation will release in September. It will be forward thinking, aggressive, factual, unapologetic and designed to make hunters, anti hunters and those on the fence about hunting THINK about the role hunting truly plays in wildlife conservation. (Because of hunting, South Africa alone has seen it’s wildlife herd increase of 700,000 in the late 90s to over 18 million today.)

We then wrap up the broadcast by checking in with PhoneSkope founder and owner Cheston Davis. The passionate Western big game hunter talks about the inception of this incredibly practical product. One that I truly believe belongs in every hunter’s pack. We talk archery elk hunting, his brief foray into our world of Whitetail deer hunting (something most Western guys don’t have much experience with) and much more! BTW- if you choose to order a PhoneSkope, be sure to use the promo code “lonestar” upon checking out online to save 10% off your order.

We’ll see you Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.
