We start off by talking spring bear hunting with Mossberg Firearms’ Linda Powell. Our longtime friend has harvested more bears than just about anyone we know and she talks about why hunting both brown and black bears is so addictive. Linda has taken black bears all over North America and brown bears in both Alaska and Russia. We also discuss the Mossberg 835 Turkey Shotgun we’ll be giving away on the show this month.
Next, we discuss the use of thermal imaging drones for hog eradication and wildlife management surveys. I had the opportunity to go out with Jason Douglas of Thermal Wildlife Drones last week and take in first hand how a drone can help landowners find and eliminate feral hogs. But this technology comes with a gray area for me. We discuss all the details with Jason. (Jason waiting for dark to fly the drone- we would kill 14 hogs with the drones assistance that night)
We round out the show by visiting with Dallas Safari Club Executive Director Ben Carter for the last time. Ben is stepping down after a decade at the helm of DSC. We take a look back at what he’s most proud of during that tenure. I also ask him what to expect and how to prepare for my first trip to Africa this summer. We’ll see you Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
