First we hear the full story on the would be state record deer poached by Denton County resident Travis Johnson this past October. Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Warden Story McCuistion headed up the investigation and he joins us to explain how Travis illegally harvested the deer and what punishment he faces for unlawfully taking a truly once in a lifetime buck. Travis Johnson with the would have been state record buck that he shot after dark.


Then I share my harrowing duck hunting tale from 2 weeks ago. My 4 legged partner “Belle” fell thru the ice. I had to go in and get her. Talk about a scary situation and a new kind of cold!


We wrap up the broadcast by checking in with Kurt Davis and William Wilkinson. This duo recently won the West Texas Big Bobcat Contest. Nearly 700 teams entered and the tournament paid out over $100,000 – including a $48,440 payday to Kurt and William for their 34 lb 7 oz tomcat.

Join us Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.

Social Trends in Hunting and A Historical Look at Hunters Admiration of All Wildlife With Shane Mahoney

Why do I hunt? I don’t know,  why do I wake up in the morning? I just don’t know any other way. It’s who I am.

Luckily Conservation Visions Founder – Shane Mahoney is much more articulate and eloquent in explaining the answer to that question.

When Shane speaks, I listen intently.  In over 8 years of hosting this show, I found my recent discussion with Shane to be as interesting as just about anything I’ve ever aired.

Wade Fishing for Trout and Redfish with Captain Nick Dykes of Triple D Charters in Galveston Bay

Captain Nick jumps on to discuss what artificial baits are catching the most fish this winter. We also get out of the boat and get into his passion for wade fishing and why he finds that style of fishing so much more attractive.

Join us Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.
