  • Lake Caddo offers a smorgasbord of fishing opportunities and for many years Luke relied on his long time friend guide Billy Carter to keep him informed and to supply fuel for his articles in newspapers and magazines. Billy passed away a year or so ago and with his passing went a lifetime of fishing and hunting knowledge pertaining to this beautiful part of Texas. Luckily, Dottie Carter, Billy's wife, put Luke in contact with guide Chaz Warren who grew up on the lake fishing with older guides such as Carter and Henry Lewis. Chaz operates out of Johnson's Ranch Marina and like Billy Carter, fishes for white and yellow bass, catfish and crappie. Contact Chaz through the marina or call (903) 371-8087 for more info on fishing.
  • Luke is joined this week by Paul Tyson, owner of (www.gearthehunt.com) and a Facebook page titled North Texas Piggin. Paul is an expert in night hunting for wild hogs and today's show is devoted to the use of Thermal Scopes, particularly the Rattler Brand by AGM Global Vision company. With the introduction of the Rattler line of scopes last year, the affordable price point combined with a very solid product, hunting with thermal was made available to many hunters that previously could not justify spending thousands of dollars for a thermal scope.
