Hour two kicks off with turkey hunting guide Chet Loar. Chet shares some of his tips and tricks learned over two decades of chasing longbeards. Nick Green from MUCC is up next. Nick has details of a lawsuit against the Michigan DNR Director Dan Eichinger filed by an anti hunting group over the wolf advisory committee formed to investigate a possible wolf hunt. The “Ask Avery” segment wraps up the hour. This time the question deals with the use of drones for hunting in Michigan. I was told by a DNR representative there are currently no laws on the books to restrict such activity, but I later found out that’s not the case. I’m still investigating and will have an update on next week’s show.
