Robert Hillard talks with me about his book "A Season on the Allegheny." Rob, his dog Hunter, and some human friends make for an interesting, historical and sometimes comical story of one full hunting year in the Allegheny forest. From geese to grouse and ducks to deer... if you like a hunting story laced with history, this one is a must read.
Had a great talk with Jim Wood, executive chef at Antlers bar and grill. He owns a Vizsla and a Braque Francais. He can help us get the most out of our wild game. He also is featured on Michigan Out of Doors television. Raised by a Father that is a custom rifle builder, he had two choices, so, he lets his dad make fine guns and he makes fine cuisine.
Rick Noble is the Pro Staff Manager for Ruff Tough Kennels. He brings years of experience to the table from his background in saftey with NASCAR and years as police K-9 handler. Now with his first fully trained Lab(Nitschke) We cover alot of subjects, from family heirloom guns, duck and goose hunting, and why NASCAR drivers all have hot wives!!! And let me know,if you old enough to figure out where Rick came up with his dogs name??
This was recorded in Wyoming after we wrapped up an episode of Meateater, with my friend Steve Rinella. Not a lot of dog info but more of a wrap up of the hunt. 3 nights in a tent was plenty for this old fart. On day four, Bravo and Artie were finished. Oscar the young dog had to pick up the slack.
