It’s just been a great day!

Who shot this?

Look at that, wow!


[Bob] Folks, this week we’re on location in Norwich, Kansas. A trophy book of outdoor outfitters, filming for 2020. 2019 was another great year to be in the outdoors and I had a chance of a lifetime to hunt and fish in some of the greatest locations in America with some very special folks. As you know, we’re always taking you to some very special destinations around the country. And that’s what brings us to Kansas today. We’ve traveled to Kansas over the past few years and you’ve seen us do some shows out there. But I’ve really only had the chance to do some spring turkey hunting. Folks, this is going to be my first trip to Kansas where I’m going to have the opportunity to take a big buck and do some duck hunting while we’re out here. What a great combination that’s going to be. You know, my first look back on this week’s show it’s another great combo hunt but this time it was back in the South Carolina low country. Night hog hunting and doing one of my favorite things in the outdoors and that’s quail hunting behind some awesome bird dogs, all in the matter of 12 hours. Let’s take a look at our low country combo hunt, this week, right down in South Carolina.

Got a pretty nice sized hog, just decided to come out. Folks, I’m using my ATM night vision scope mounted on my Browning BAR 308 caliber. It’s a great tool option for hog hunting here at night. Here down at Cedar Knoll, again, the guys really got these stands in strategic places up. He’s not sure he’s ready to come out. Hi, come on guys. Alright, he’s getting a little bit braver. Come on. Still something he’s not liking out there. Okay, maybe it’s the light. He’s looking right at it. Okay here we go. Maybe we’re going to settle down here. Alright, this may be my shot. Here comes another one, he’s even bigger. This one here is probably a little over 200. But again, at about 195 yards, it’s hard to tell. Don’t leave. I’d much rather take the other one behind him but that’s okay. Sometimes if you wait too long, they decide to scurry and not come back. Maybe this one is going to cooperate here.

I know I was looking here and I seen the birds are in between. You all want to come up a little more here. You get close just shoot that little hog . I can see this is going to be a tough crowd this morning.

Yes sir.

Don’t be too hard on me Hayward.


Find them Blue, find them.

We got little Blue.

We’re fixing to find them.

Oh yeah.

Well I got my two!

I didn’t get mine, I winged them.

Alright! Well folks joining me now is a good friend of mine Joey Robinson, he’s a quail hunter, a duck hunter, a fishing guide. He lives down in South Carolina right near Sante and I tell you what, Joey has invited us to come down and join him on the deer and duck hunting adventure in Kansas, at Travis Steven’s place at Big Trophy Bucks of Kansas Outfitters. Joey I want to thank you again for

Glad you came. Coaching us, for coming out here. I know we’re out duck hunting this morning and

It’s good. Well you know, it’s hunting okay?

That’s right. And we’re having a chance to kind of catch our breath a little bit.


We’ve had birds come in, but one of the things that often intrigues me about guys that have the passion like you. You’ve been coming out here for over 20 years. What brings you coming out every year?

The deer, the ducks, the people out here are super, nice people. This is just a way of life that I love, I’ve always loved it.

You told me many times, this is your vacation.

It is, it’s a vacation to myself.

Well, there’s not too many guys that can unhook from the family and the wife and say I’ll see you when I see you.

I’m lucky I have a good one.

Exactly we all are, that’s really for us that has the passion for the outdoors like you. You got 50 years of duck hunting around your neck.


You got all those bands around your neck, I know you really love it.

It’s been a ride.

You’ve got Rooster, your dedicated lab, will travel. I mean one of those things I enjoy is being around guys just like you who understand what it’s like to be in the outdoors. And we’re getting fewer and farther between.

Yeah, we need to get more kids involved in it. Bring more kids and their parents also, get them involved in it. Let’s take a sneak peak at some of our duck hunting action we had.


We’ve been out here, we’ve been at it hard, man, every morning .

It’s been a tough week.

Yeah, I tell you, it’s always tough out here.

Well folks, I tell you what, let’s take a look at our action from earlier duck hunting this week. And maybe we’ll be able to take some sneak footage of what’s coming up in 2020.

Here, here.

Rooster’s gone again.

Come on, come here.

Nice again bro.

Perfect pair. Man.

Good start in the morning.

That Travis listens, I’m telling you.

Best duck hunting.

Listen, it’s probably the best duck hunting I’ve probably had in my lifetime. Folks, we are in Kansas just outside of Norwich Kansas not too far from Wichita. We came in, drove all night long, 18 plus hours to get here. Travis Stevens, the property owner right here, man, I’ll tell you what I’ll introduce Joey Robinson from South Carolina. He’s got Rooster the dog, he’s going to get these first two ducks that we got down. I’ll tell you, I don’t know how, Joey has kept this, Travis, is the best kept secret from me and him only living 30 miles from me in South Carolina. Rooster finally got to work. We’re here in Norwich Kansas, where Trophy Bucks of Kansas Outfitters and I’m actually trying to get one of these big hummers on camera. And, probably, a buck of my lifetime, they’re here. They grow bigger, badder, and I tell you what, antlers like this and we’re already had a chance to see some of those. And I know, you’re going to get a sneak peak in 2020. But, looking back at some of our hunts over the past year I had some great opportunities to do a lot of great things in the outdoors, but one I really value the most is I was able to do some deer hunting on my property up in South Carolina and I tell you what, I just want to show you a little of that deer hunting footage that we have for 2019. I am about 54 yards from iy. I look to my left there’s that itty bitty ugly looking buck. A young one, and I’m coming back, and it’s time and I’m going to take the shot. Well folks, joining me again is Joey Robinson from South Carolina. You know Joey and I did a show several years ago, together, and it was just an awesome opportunity to showcase one of his championship bird dogs. Joey, if you had the opportunity to give some advice to folks who either own a bird dog, want to own bird dog, or love quail hunting, I want you to think about one of those tips that you provide.

Okay, we’ll do that.

But right now what I want you to do is hold that thought because I know there’s a lot of tips that we could give.

Oh yeah.

I’ve had bird dogs over the years, as well, but you hold that thought because, first folks, I want to take you all to south Georgia and take a look at some quail hunting action we had the opportunity to do in 2019.

Come here.

Come on up Mike.

Alright, Dixie, help us out.

Nicely done, guys, I got two down.

Dixie says there’s birds in here.

I see one.

Right there.

Man, I’m on fire today.

I’ll tell you bud, you are! Man! I’d call you quick draw Mcgraw! Alright, Joey, I promised all the folks out there that you’d provide them with a tip about training a bird dog, keeping a bird dog, and if they want if they wanted to quail hunt. What would you provide them is the best advice to those guys out there or gals who want to bird dog.

Very first thing is finding the best trainer you can find, after that, find time to take your dog out. There’s nothing like working a dog, you have to spend time with them to get good dogs. Thirdly, keep them in good shape, that’s the main thing. When you get a good one, hang onto him.

Absolutely, you have and I’ve had the opportunity to have 6, or 8, 10 of them over my life time. And you’re right, if you don’t have the opportunity to put them in birds at least two or three times a week – –

Right. And that’s year round, it’s just not doing them service.

And take them out west, Kansas, Missouri, different places, take them out where they have plentiful birds and get them in those birds. Doesn’t matter where you go, just get them in the birds and work them Well, that’s great advice out there. You know folks I tell you what. Stay tuned, when we come back I’m going to take you on the boat and we’re going to be doing some great fishing action. And showing you some of that footage and some of the best of 2019.

Bob Redfern’s “Outdoor Magazine” is being brought to you today by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, life’s just better outdoors. Buy Berkley, catch more fish with Berkley fishing products, by Ranger Boats, still building legends one at a time, by Browning ammunition, Browning, the best there is, and by Southern Woods Plantations, voted one of the top quail hunting destinations in America. You know, folks, weather in 2019 played a major factor in all of our fishing trips. Extreme cold in the winter and we experienced some big, bad summer heat which was not always the best conditions for fishing. But, despite the ups and downs, we were out there doing it and we still had some great fishing opportunities around the country with some very special folks. Let’s take a look at some of that action from 2019.

That’s a little better.

Well the fog is hopefully getting out of here.

And you know, I always say, hope is never a method but this morning, that’s the best that we can do. I tell you what, you talk about soup and sandwich.

Hopefully they couldn’t see anything.
