When you have been kicking around the outdoors for about 55 years, it's tough to find "something new". Luke discovered a new way of hunting rabbits this past week that he thoroughly enjoyed. Luke joined his friend Deryl Markgraf on his hunting least in north Texas along with Terry Tate and Matthew Yates. The group set up what they kiddiingly referred to as  their "mid winter rabbit camp".

Bitcoin has billionaires now. So everybody's suddenly paying a lot more attention to it. The problem is, not a lot of people actually know what Bitcoin is. And whether being rich with it is really being rich or it's like having Monopoly money up to your ears is still a question we're trying to answer.

In this week's show, Luke discusses the study currently underway to use sodium nitrite to control (kill) wild hogs.

In this week's show, Luke discusses the study currently underway to use sodium nitrite to control (kill) wild hogs. In preparation for an upcoming magazine article on the topic of controlling wild hog numbers, Luke has some insights into the study of the use of sodium nitrite, the preservative used in curing ham and bacon.

David Hanson joins Luke this week and talks, of course, about the awesome fishing for trophy blue catfish now underway at Lake Tawakoni but David shares a bit more good news! His son in law, Kaylab Glasco took his first ever whitetail deer a few days ago. The buck sported a rack just over 20 inches inside spread. Not bad for a "first" deer.  Late season buck hunting can be very good because many of the doe fawn born back in late May and early June are coming in estrus the first time which is the reason for what many call the "second rut".

Rabbit!

Fried Rabbit
Luke Clayton

Wintertime is time to go after an often overlooked source of some great table fare; the cottontail or swamp rabbit. In this week's show, Luke talks rabbit hunting and shares a couple of his recipes cooking rabbit. 

Are wild hogs good to eat? This is a question Luke is asked often. His answer is YES but not every hog! The pork from younger boars can be transformed into tasty meals IF it's prepared and cooked properly.
Luke Clayton

In today's show, Luke discusses hunting and cooking wild hogs and... a few other topics that came to his mind during his weekly impromptu visits.

Most outdoor folks take photos of their catch/harvest so that they can recall that special time on the water or in the field. Luke's guest this week is noted wildlife photographer Geroge Barnett (www.georgebarnettphoto.com).

Enjoy some one-on one time with Luke this week as he discusses some current trends in deer hunting. Luke stresses the point that we all need to be acceptable to each other's form of style of hunting, whether it be with a rifle, bow or whatever, just as long as the style of hunting is deemed legal by Texas Parks and WIldlife Department. 

Luke also gives his recipe for what he considers to be the very best tasting venison  BBQ he has eaten. It's an easy recipe and one you can do "just right" on your first try.

Brandy and Brian remember what they can about their mother, Carey Mae Parker, and how her disappearance shaped their childhoods and the adults they became. Brandy's father Leonard dies suddenly in Dallas, under circumstances that Carey's younger sister Patricia views as suspicious. 

Mule Deer Chili
Luke Clayton

This week, Luke shares a recipe for making smoked venison chili  and discusses the process necessary to insure that the big buck or doe you harvest will be excellent eating. Luke also covers some fine points of meat processing and storage. 

Some things are best left broken, as cruel as that sounds- some problems should be left open and unsolved. This episode explores stories about broken people, things and relationships that simply don't need to be repaired- and why they should be left behind.

Lake Tawakoni guide David Hanson shows off a catch.
Luke Clayton

Tune in this week and listen to a couple of old friends talk about everything from catching trophy blue catfish to the current stage of the white tail rut here in north east Texas. David Hanson is a regular on the show, most listeners know him and many have spent time on the water fishing with him. David has spent the past several days hunting deer and gives not only some catfish catching tips but some very current news concerning the whitetail rut.
