Good Morning,​

We start things off by discussing scent elimination with Troy Kloever of ScentKapture. Every whitetail hunter obsesses over trying to keep their scent profile at a minimum. Troy explains how Scentkapture uses the latest scientific molecule trapping technology to squash human odor. There are plenty of scent control formulas on the market, but Troy gives us some insight on what works and what doesn’t and why.

Then we do some backcountry scouting for giant, public land mule deer with passionate bow hunter Ryan Alspach of Warrior Fuel Supplements and Warrior Fuel Hunt. We discuss where to find those elusive giants and how to use digital scouting technology to help try and arrow one come archery season.

Then we spend a segment on something every guy  should be interested in: testosterone. Our bodies make it, and we need it to live a healthy and satisfying life, yet due to today’s world some of us suffer from insufficient testosterone levels. It can make you lethargic, unmotivated and leave you in a zombie like state day in and day out. Ryan and I give our first hand experiences and how it has changed our lives for the better. Go get your levels checked fellas! If it makes you happier and healthier, it will make you a better hunter and angler.

We round out the show by discussing the Bowhunter Box Club with Jason Feldt. This monthly box is a great way to get to test out some awesome archery related products each month.

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.

This week on the Lone Star Outdoors Show, we kick things off by talking with shark angler Tim McClellan of League City, Texas. Tim recently caught a tournament winning and new state record hammerhead shark that measured 14.5 inches and weighed 1033 lbs! We get the firsthand recount of this once in a lifetime catch that took 3 hours to reel in even while chasing the fish down in a 30 foot off shore boat!

Then we take a look at some concerning news coming out of Northern California and the conservation impact that it might have. Last week, the 2nd ever wolf pack was discovered in Northern California, the implications for deer and other cervid species could be huge as wolves continue their Southwestern expansion.

Next we are joined by Dr. Nancy Rabalais of Louisiana State University. We’ll discuss the Dead Zone in the Gulf where life ceases to exist due to a lack of oxygen in the water. The area, void of sealife is the size of the state of Vermont this year, the largest Dead Zone on record. Dr Rabalais tells us what causes it and how humans can help prevent it going forward.
Then we discuss summertime blues with Greg Pavur of Pavur Outdoors. Greg is on the blue catfish bite as usual and he tells us where to find ’em and how to catch them.

We talk about the ever increasingly popular sport of long range shooting with Horizon Firearms CEO Derrick Ratliff. Derrick recently shot in a North American Long Range Shooting Association event and advanced to the 2nd round shooting out to 700 yards. We talk about the new long range circuit which is run by the same folks who head up the Professional Bull Riding Circuit (PBR). Derrick discusses how to judge the wind at extreme distances and which calibers were the most prevalent at the shoot. We then dive into our upcoming Africa Safaris and which calibers each of us are taking and some of the game we’ll be pursuing with each.

Then we spend a couple segments with Gulf Coast German Pointer Shorthair Club President Gene Moseley. A lifelong bird dog trainer and upland hunter, Gene talks about the advantages of the GSP over other bird dog breeds in the field. We also look back at the history of this breed dating back to it’s roots in Germany where it was used for much more than upland birds. Then we discuss the upcoming snake breaker clinic- a great idea for any hunting dog owner to enroll their dog in. If you hunt in the southern United States, it’s not a matter of if your dog will come into contact with a venomous snake – it’s a matter of when. Arming them with the knowledge to associate snakes with danger is the least we can do for our loyal hunting partners.
