As the seasons begin to change, we start looking ahead to new outdoor activities. One activity that’s becoming more and more popular with waterfowl hunters is hunting snow geese in the spring. We continue our radio series on the snow goose chase with Tony Crotty of Mid Migration Outfitters. He’s in South Dakota following the migration and will get us an update on what part of the migration is passing through.
We also get a fishing report from Mille Lacs with Jamie Dietman and get his “secret” (or not so secret?) fish smoking recipe and prep.
The sturgeon spearing season wrapped up on Lake Winnebago last weekend, with a record number of spearers taking to the lake. With ice conditions variable leading up to the event and water clarity issues, the season was bound to be a tough one. How did they finish up and why does the Upriver Lakes area end up with a significantly higher success rate? Ryan Koenigs from the Wisconsin DNR will join us to explain. Ryan grew up on Lake Winnebago and was able to work as a sturgeon biologist right in his backyard on Lake Winnebago.
And the Northland Outdoors staff is back! Greg Kaiser, Brian Peterson and Becca Clemens will (willfully?) play another game of “More Than You Ever Wanted To Know!” This week it’s about state parks around the region. We’ll highlight some unusual attractions during this week’s show.
We’re making it easier for you to listen to the radio show, with 23+ airings across 21 stations on the network. Of course after they air, we offer the chance to listen online too, in our podcast section. Find a station and listen to past podcasts here.
A lot of you have been asking for the ability to listen in iTunes and we should have that available soon. We’ve also got a few more affiliates coming later this month, so if the show doesn’t air where you are, just wait – it might be soon!
