Luke speaks with Jeff Rice about squirrel hunting this week
Luke Clayton

Join Luke and his guest and good friend Jeff Rice for a tutorial on hunting squirrel during the breeding season (rut). Most hunters are aware of the whitetail rut and know that it is the best time to harvest a wise old buck when he lets his guard down. Squirrels mate twice a year and right now is the peak of the squirrel (rut). No better time to collect the makings of a big pot of squirrel stew or dumplings!

The topic of Luke's outdoor show today is deer hunting. He used his 45 caliber Airforce Airguns Texan air rifle on the Dale River Ranch (www.daleriverranch.com) to harvest his first ever whitetail buck with an air rifle.

Lake Tawakoni catfish guide Tony Pennebaker with one of many ‘eater’ size catfish landed this past week. Trophy blue catfish are biting well but on this trip, Luke was after the makings of a big fish fry and that’s exactly what Pennebaker produced.
Luke Clayton

As I walked up on the dock this past week at Lake Tawakoni Marina, I was greeted by catfish guide Tony Pennebaker. I could tell by the expression on his face that he had something humorous on his mind. “Fryers or trophy” he asked as I walked up to his guide boat. “Knowing you, Luke I think I already know what your answer will be!”

Luke Clayton

When I first discovered the power of modern day air rifles about 8 years ago at an outdoor show in Waco, I was amazed at their power and accuracy. John McCaslin, president of Airforce Airguns invited me to the Airforce Airguns booth and indoor range to shoot one of his companies .25 caliber PCP (Pre-Charged Pneumatic) rifles. I think John could see that I was eager to learn more and I was  invited to visit the company’s plant in Ft. Worth and found myself thoroughly enjoying a totally new (new to me) style of sporting arm.

Every hunt doesn’t have to result in meat for the freezer and antlers on the wall. It’s the sights and sounds and people that leave lasting impressions.
Luke Clayton

Walking back to the ranch headquarters after an afternoon mule deer hunt last week in northern New Mexico, I stopped to cast a backwards glance at the night sky and the outline of the Continental Divide, the summit of which lay about a half mile to my west. A brilliant bright sliver moon was well above the Divide and just below the moon appeared the most awesome display of multi layered clouds painted in colors that my camera and long lens simply could not do justice to.  The sun had long disappeared over the western horizon but still gave just enough light to illuminate the night sky.

Catching and eating “Fryer” size catfish

by Luke Clayton

I was well into my twenties before I set down to a platter of catfish fillets. I was raised eating catfish either fried whole or cut into ‘steaks’. My Dad probably didn’t even know what a ‘fillet’ was. Had he known, I’m positive he would have considered the practice of filleting a waste of good fish!

Frying Catfish
