[Narrator] On this week’s “Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine,” Bob is back at Southern Woods Plantation in Sylvester, Georgia for some more quail hunting. And this week’s “Sportsman’s Table” recipe features a South Carolina-certified fried snapper recipe. Stay tuned for this and a whole lot more on this week’s “Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine”.
Yeah, it’s just been a great day. We shot this hog. Look at that, wow! Lemme hold that thing. Nice!
Well folks, welcome to our show this week. We are back down at Southern Woods and with more of our Chevy partners. If you saw last week’s show, well, I tell you what, we had some great action with some great partners and, again, I always gotta ask you, what’s in your garage? And if it’s not a Chevrolet, then, well, you’re just wrong. I’ve got some special guests that are gonna start off with me this week, gonna be my wing men. On my far right over here is John Thornton. He’s the owner of John Thornton Chevrolet in Lithia Springs, Georgia. Next to him is my good friend Newt Strickland of Bellamy Strickland Chevrolet in McDonough, Georgia. Trey Dettmering is also with John Thornton Chevrolet in Lithia Springs. Guys, I just have to give you the old bump all the way down. Go Auburn Tigers, huh? Huh, yeah? Newt. John, listen. It is a pleasure to have outdoorsmen, but also Chevrolet dealers, who love the outdoors, and I know you guys do. This is what you do, you love doing this, and I love taking and going with you. So I just want to thank you for that. And thank for all that you guys do for all of us outdoorsmen, okay? It is a great, great opportunity for us. And John, you and I, I think. Mr. Newt Hughes is gonna put us on the first covey, and then I’m gonna hunt with each one of you guys, okay? Now, just be easy on me and John out here, okay? It’ll be all good, okay?
Well, guys, listen. Again, I thank you all in the individual. We’re going to do that all, I’ll tell you what. War Eagle.
All right, man. You ready, Josh?
Let’s go do ‘er. What are you thinking, Dixie?
[Newt] Get a bird, Dixie. Coming at you and said, “Look, let’ hunt.”
[Bob] Yeah, he did.
[Newt] Get a bird, Dixie.
[Bob] Up, there they go! They’re down? Okay, awesome. How many did you get, John?
[John] Three, I think.
[Bob] Okay, that’s all I’m talking about. Whoo!
[Bob] That’s a nice covey rise out of that. Nice covey rise. I know, I know. And the only good thing about that is it’s Southern Woods.
Southern Woods is great.
You know, listen. I have to ask how many years have you been a Chevrolet dealer? You know, your dedication is just remarkable. I mean, I know you put your heart and soul in that dealership.
I’ve been a dealer since 1983. Trey came in and took over a few years ago, so we’re good partners now. He’s a great, great dealer. He’s a lot smarter than I am and does all this newfangled stuff a lot better than I do. We’ve been able to develop a great relationship that thrives when we get out and do things like this. Right after he came to work for us I started a deal going out once a year quail hunting with Ian, my other son-in-law. It’s been great.
That’s awesome. All right, the kids say they’re here.
[Newt] Get a bird.
[Bob] Dixie’s looking.
[Newt] Go, Bill.
[John] Two dead and one sore butt.
[Bob] Gotta be more in there, Bill. Gotta be more in there.
[Newt] All right, Bill’s on point straight in there on that dead bird, so y’all watch him.
[Bob] All right, William. I see him.
Get a bird. That may be clear.
[John] Those birds moved.
[Bob] Bill says we’re done here. Okay.
[John] All right Bob, you saw I needed a little help.
[Bob] Nah baby, I’m right there with you.
[Newt] Dixie, get a bird.
[Bill] We’ll just see if Dixie gets it up.
[Newt] Get it.
[Bob] There we go. All right. Dixie did good.
There’s the other one.
There’s our other dead bird.
That was one I was looking–
[Bob] Yep! Pointing to back, William. Nicely done. Dot and Bill.
[John] Boy that’s real pretty when they get like that, isn’t it?
It is, ain’t it? Dixie makes three. I got a feeling it’s coming your way, William, whoa!
[Bob] I think it went around that tree. I had to have an excuse on that one. Ah, you know, gosh. Goodness. Oh well. I can’t get ’em all.
You know, Bob, sometimes–
I can’t get ’em all brother!
Bob, sometimes you gotta leave a little seed.
You got to, I’m telling you!
You gotta leave seed.
Listen, to us, talk a little about Bellamy Strickland and your years as a dealer and, of course, your a big outdoorsman, okay? I see you all the time. It’s just one of those things. It’s really a pleasure because you guys, you get it, and you do as an individual.
Thanks, I enjoy being outside an awful lot. I was raised in the country. I’m a country boy at heart. I love getting out there. I’ve taught my daughter to get outside a little bit. She enjoys horses and hunting a little bit. And we enjoy being out here with you guys. Chevrolet is a big part of the outdoors, as you know, and it’s been really good to both of us.
I can tell you it’s been great having you as a wingman today, but you know there’s a lot more birds out here so let’s see if we can go get some.
All right, Bob thanks a lot.
Right, man, let’s do it. All right, thanks. Whoa-ho, ah!
[Newt] Get a bird, get a bird!
[Bob] I know Dixie, I know. There he goes, take him, Trey! Oh, nice shot! Nice shot! Whoo!
Listen, you know I could tell. John’s got you out of that dealership, boy. A War Eagle, man!
A little bit, huh?
You know, it’s been a while since you and I have been, not only on camera, but been hunting together. The last time I remember, it was colder than a well digger’s butt in the Klondike.
With snow. Yeah, fourteen degrees. Ice and snow, and we were out quail hunting. Great conditions today.
I can tell you still get out and hunt a little bit.
As much as possible.
Well look, I know you love the outdoors, but you also love Chevrolet, and that’s been your life. Tell me a little bit about your background and history with that, because it really means so much to us who love the outdoors.
I have, I got into it about fifteen years ago with the family business, and have gotten to meet and do things that I never would have thought I would have gotten to do with Chevrolet, and it’s been a great ride.
Well, we got more quail out there, brother.
Let’s go get ’em.
War Eagle, okay. You know, as dedicated Auburn fans, they’re everywhere, they really are. But I have to say go Vols okay? Tennessee, gotta have it. Let’s go, man, we’ll get some more quail.
All right, let’s go.
[Bob] All right, Trey, I got a feeling they’re all going to go your way.
[Newt] Dixie! Dixie, come! Get a bird! Get a bird!.
[Bob] There they go!
There we got ’em! Whoo, they’re still coming out of there! Man! This looks like a water retrieve here. Dixie in a water retrieve. Trey, you don’t see that everyday.
[Trey] No you don’t.
[Bob] Oh, man. Look at that, aw my goodness. There she comes.

Well, folks, welcome back to our show this week. You know, I always love having great friends… Well, you know when you’re Quail hunting you got to have a good wingman, and I’ve got two of the best from the state of South Carolina. Two of my great friends. The one right next to me here, Chuck McDonald.
McDonald Law, this guy keeps me out of trouble. Tiger fan number one, okay, and I’ll tell you what. The next one is Brian White, representative from Anderson, South Carolina. These two guys are great outdoorsmen, they love it. Brian.
Thanks so much for being a guest on the show. And both of you guys.
Thank you. Coming down to South Georgia to quail hunt. Look at your style and your profile.
Brian, you do so much for the sportsmen, not only throughout the state, but you also do it on a national level as well.
That’s right. The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation has state chapters called “NASC.” Matter of fact, we just finished up our annual event here in South Georgia. Brought in people from all over the country to show ’em how great South Georgia is for quail hunting and other types of hunting. Bob, thanks for you for always being a good supporter of ours and the great outdoors, and what you do to–
Oh Brian it is a pleasure. And you know, Chuck, I’ll tell you what. The thing I gotta say about this guy, McDonald Law. You’re wondering, hmm, why has he got an attorney? Well, you never know when you may need one, okay? We always say, 9-1-1, call Chuck.
Well I’m like a Maytag repair man with you. You never get in any trouble, buddy.
You’re just rock solid.
Boy, I got two great coaches. I got two great wing men, I wanna thank you both. Let’s go shoot some birds.
Let’s do it.
All right man.
[Bob] Dot and Bill have got us a bird here, and here comes Dixie.
[Chuck] Deep fryer and they like the smell of French fries.
[Brian] Might have to buy some and try that trick on the way home. Deep fried smoked sausage.
[Brian] You have some pretty dogs.
[Bob] Good spot!
[Newt] Get a bird, Dixie. Dixie! Get it, there he is. Whoo, umm! I thought he was coming your way, I’m sorry. Gosh. Man!
[Brian] They should come my way. They know I keep missing ’em so far this morning.
But that’s some good covey rises, I’m telling you! You know, one of the great things about coming down here is bringing friends who love to do this. I have to ask you, I know you kinda do it all. What is your favorite thing? What do you love to do the most?
Well, we’re doing it.
Do you really?
Honestly? I don’t believe I’ve ever asked you that question.
I grew up quail hunting.
We had nothing else to do where I grew up in rural South Carolina other than quail hunt. It was all family farmland around, so that’s what we did. My dad taught me to respect the outdoors. If you take game you have to eat it. You don’t just take to be taking, and you thank God for his creatures every day.
Well, I have to finally ask you what’s coming up special that really pegs the needle for you with the coalition?
I think one of our biggest things that we’re doing now is the shooting sports. The fastest growing population of shooters is women, believe it or not, and we’ve getting high school youth involved in skeet and trap shoots. And just to promote sporting, clays. That’s part of shooting, because the average person doesn’t understand that by buying these guns and buying this ammo, you’re contributing to conservation which is God’s world and that’s what we’re gonna to take care of and provide that access for people to be able to do it. I think that’s the number one issue is access. Go out and buy a hunting license and you’ll preserve the great outdoors.
Brian, it’s been a pleasure, man.
Thank you so much. Let’s go get some more quail.
[Bob] All right, Chuck!
All right, Mr. Bob.
Come on, man!
Wing men on point.
[Newt] Dixie, get a bird!
[Bob] I’ll tell you what, Dot and Bill are working their heart out for us here this morning. And so is Dixie. There we go!
[Chuck] That’s one Brian wounded, wasn’t it?
[Bob] I think that was one of the… That had a leg down on it, okay, well. We got him, anyway.
[Newt] Bring it, Dot!
[Bob] Dot says, “I’m on to the next one.”
[Newt] Dixie, bring it!
Dude, I’m telling you. Dixie says, “Look, Dad, huh?” “Gimme a break.” All right, Chuck, there gotta be more. This could be the big one.
Coming my way.
I know. Oh, nicely done, Chuck. Awesome shot, wow!
Man, I think they’re gonna leave us out front. Take him! Aw, you got the tail end, and he’s coming down!
[Newt] Crash dead, right?
Right, coming down.
Hey, stayed in the wind.
Mmm. That’s okay, Chuck.
I think he’ll helicopter in.
Yeah I saw some feathers fly.
Well, Chuck, listen. I have to ask you, as Newts’s going over there. We’ve been friends for, gosh, fifteen, over fifteen-plus years.
One of the things that I have really become very fond of you is is, you know, you’ve gotten back out into the outdoors. I’m not sure if that’s just because I get you out here, but you grew up that way.
Then you kind of got away from it for a little bit.
That’s right. Absolutely.
And now I got to get you out from behind a laptop, on occasion, to do this.
I love it.
But you do.
Thank you for doing that.
Oh, listen. It’s really so enjoyable to have you out and have you as a wingman. Next thing I gotta do is gotta you on the boat.
Yeah, I need some help on the boat brother.
Okay, now look, I’m going to go ahead. I know that we’re going to date this a little bit, that your Clemson Tigers–
But I have to say this. It’s been a while. The last time we were on a show, South Carolina Gamecocks were on a roll.
They had Dabo up on the ropes. It was 5-0, okay. Now the tales have turned.
Now its 6-0 against the Gamecocks. You guys lost the national championship but you’ll be back.
We’ll be back.
Better team won that night. We’ll be back, we’ll be back.
Yeah, but folks, I have to tell you though. Chuck has the best of both worlds. He went to Clemson and got his engineering degree, and then he went to USC School of Law in Columbia. So he has a balance, but he still leans over to the Tiggers.
It’s a pretty strong lean, but I got a degree from South Carolina.
I haven’t learned the Tiger Rag yet, but I’m sure before the trips over, you’ll teach me.
We’ll sing it.
Okay, let’s go some quail.
All right, good deal.
[Narrator] When we come back, we head to the Sportsman’s Table for another South Carolina-certified seafood recipe. “The Sportman’s Table” is brought to you by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Whether you live in South Carolina or out of state, be sure to buy South Carolina-grown meats, vegetables and fruits. Make sure your food is South Carolina-certified. It’s a matter of taste.
Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Sportsman’s Table.” Folks, we’re here at Deck 383 Restaurant in beautiful Murrells Inlet, and with me today is Chef Tom Mullaly. He is Chef Instructor and he owns Strand Catering right here in Murrells Inlet. He’s got a special fish recipe for us. I’ll tell you what, this guy never ceases to amaze me. Tom, it’s always a pleasure, man! Before we get you off–
Great to see you, sir.
I’d love to get you on the boat, but I know you gotta tee time you gotta get to.
There’s never enough hours in the day. You know how that works.
I’m telling you. What do you got for us?
Fresh, local red snapper right here out of the inlet. Right in our atlantic waters.
Beautiful stuff, doesn’t get any better than that. So again, as you know, Bob, no bland food allowed. Little salt, little pepper.
Yeah, spice of life. We’ve got our pan piping hot here. Definition of saute is minimal oil and high heat. So we’re looking for that sizzle factor. Always wanna hear that sizzle, here we go! Oh yeah. On a piece of fish like that, I know you guys tell me all the time, “Don’t overcook the meat.”
Correct, there’s nothing worse than an overcooked piece of fish. You don’t want it to be dry, you want it to be nice and moist in the center. So you don’t want to cook it well, well done but like medium and mid-well. It can be a little loose in the center just so it’s a little bit tender.
We’re all about certified SC.
Poultry. All of the great things that you guys put together and you use, not only on the table, but in the restaurant, you’re right.
Always, always, from sea to land. Fresh and local, that’s how we roll. This is one of those items that people don’t frequently use, but you know Chef Tom likes to be a little bit different from the competition.
[Tom] And we’ve got rice plantations going on in our state, so I figured be nice and appropriate to have a little rice on there. And this right here, my friend, I love this. This is just fresh roasted Silver Queen corn shucked off the cob. It’s gonna go great with our fish. Just fresh and sweet. Doesn’t get any better.
Got some carrot sticks.
Yeah, yep. When we garnish, we’re looking for odd numbers. Threes and fives, that type of stuff. It’s good for eye appeal.
Yeah, man. The plate is definitely coming alive, as we can tell. Got a little yellow squash here. Look at all those colors coming together.
[Bob] Yes sir.
[Tom] These are fresh red pearl onions. I’m always up to something. I’m always in competition with myself.
[Bob] I know you are, and that’s a good thing. Right here on the “The Sportsman’s Table,” too.
[Tom] I think it needs a little bit of green. We’re going to put some green in there.
[Bob] And folks, if you want a copy of Chef Tom’s recipe just log onto bobredfern.com and it’ll be right there.
There’s our beautiful piece of local snapper. Oh man, it’s all coming alive, Bob. I can feel it! We’re gonna lace it with a little roasted red bell pepper sauce.
[Bob] Oh, wow. Gosh.
Just makes you wanna eat it.
[Tom] We’re gonna hit it with a little balsamic glaze. Balsamic glaze is just a little reduction of balsamic vinegar.
Okay, oh yeah.
Balsamic vinegar has a lot of natural sugars in there, so when you reduce it down, Bob, on a little medium-low heat it gets a syrupy texture.
And then I think we just need one more color. A little bit of fresh scallion. And there you go, sir.
There we go.
[Tom] Looks good enough to eat.
[Bob] Oh my goodness, Tom, thank you so much. And folks, listen. If you wanna see what’s fresh on the menu, log onto certifiedscgrown.com. Buy local, eat fresh. You can’t do any better. And from Deck 383 Restaurant, right here in Murrells Inlet. We wanna see you right back here again next week on another great edition of “The Sportsman’s Table.”

Had a great time.
And you guys down at Megel Chevrolet, what a mainstay. How many years you guys been down there?
We’ve been there in that location since 2004. Before we were in Dahlonega. So we moved down about nine miles outside of Georgia 400.
Well, I have to tell ya, I remember when you guys were in Dahlonega because way back when I was in college, okay, I went to U.S. Army Rangers School and that was the mountain ranger camp up there.
Yeah, that’s right.
And I remember, okay, Megel Chevrolet in Dahlonega, Georgia so.
Yeah, we do a lot with the rangers still.
Oh yeah, I, that one night on Yonah Mountain.
Comin’ down on one foot and rappel, matter of fact I hurt my heel on that thing and it still hurts me today so, but, you know you guys do a great job for the outdoorsman, for Chevrolet and I just gotta thank you guys.
Thank you, we appreciate it.
You bet man.
I’ve enjoyed it.
All right, though. Russell’s got us on some birds here.
[Shawn] There we go!

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, ease up.
[Shawn] That’s a bird.

[Bob] Poor Peaches just can’t get no respect.
[Russell] Hey, bird out.

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh, look at this dog. Come here, Richard, I got Peaches here, lookee here. Yeah, I know! Look at that.
Good dog. Oh boy.
She’s only what, eight months?
Yeah, look at that.
[Russell] Four months.
You’re a pistol. Yeah, there you go. Thank you my friend, it was awesome. Now, I tell you what. For an outdoorsman, you do it all, okay? And one of the things that I wanna talk about right now is the annual dove shoot that actually your daddy, Butch, started how many years ago?
Just got through his 34th year two weeks ago.
And I hate it that we didn’t get to come. Next year, I promise you, okay? I’m gonna come, I’ll come with an umbrella, a bubble.
You gotta come early.
[Bob] A tent or whatever it is.
We’ll put you to work.
Okay. So, folks Richard is so generous to me. He handles all my Chevrolet vehicles over there in Edgefield. He takes ’em and we’re gonna talk about the latest one that he got ready for me and that’s the 2020 HD, comin’ right back here on Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine.

Folks, welcome, we’re here at Deck 383 in Wacca Wache Marina at beautiful Murrells Inlet, South Carolina and I’ve got the sous chef here at Deck 383 joinin’ me today. This is Felicia Davis. She is a former student at the International Culinary Institute here in Myrtle Beach and she’s gonna cook a fish recipe for ya. This is actually one that you did before you graduated, huh?
Well, good. Okay, tell me what we got today?
Today we have a pecan crusted mahi with a wild rice and an orange ginger soy reduction, all local.
Okay, Felicia, what are we gonna do here to this fish today?
We are going to pan sear it.
So I’m gonna go ahead and pick it up and get it for ya nice.
[Bob] That’s a nice cut of mahi.
[Felicia] Yes sir.
[Bob] Now, caught right here off the coast of South Carolina, right?
[Felicia] Yes sir.
[Bob] Yeah, there you go, okay, awesome. Now how long you gonna cook this for?
[Felicia] It’s about two minutes on each side.
[Felicia] Get it nice and golden.
[Bob] Just a nice brown, okay.
[Felicia] Yes sir.
Now once you get it cooked, are you gonna have to put it in the oven at all to finish it or is it gonna be ready to go?
You can absolutely put it in the oven if you like your fish a little bit more on the rare side, you can go ahead and take it right out of the pan and put it right there. I personally like to stick it in the oven just to get it nice and golden and fully cooked.
[Bob] Okay. Ah, yeah.
[Felicia] Nice and beautiful color.
[Bob] And look at the pecans there.
[Felicia] They add a nice little crunch to it.
[Bob] It does.
[Felicia] With that sweetness, like it’s just.
Now in order to cook this, olive oil, butter, which do you prefer?
I prefer butter, olive oil works great if you’re trying for a healthier alternative.
You can do any kind of nut with this. You don’t have to do just pecans. You can do macadamia nuts, cashews, peanuts, any nut you wanna think about, you can absolutely do it with this piece of fish.
But while that fish is renderin’ and cookin’ here, I gotta ask ya, this is your first job outta school.
Down here at Deck 383.
How do you like it?
I absolutely love it. There’s nothing quite like it. The owners are fantastic people. They really care about their employees and their customers. I’ve never heard anything bad about this place.
See, and every once and a while you can get out of the kitchen back there, okay, if Chef Jermaine’ll let ya and look at what you can cook over, huh?
Absolutely, we have wonderful sunsets. Great backdrops for dinners. If you wanna come in for lunch, beautiful weather, great breeze, there’s nothing quite like this place.
No there is not. All right, we about there, Felicia?
Okay. You know mahi mahi is a great fish, okay, and not everybody thinks that that’s only in Hawaii.
But that thing is caught right here off the coast of South Carolina so. Okay, now what are we puttin’ this on?
So we have a wild rice here that was also locally grown.
[Felicia] But we’re just gonna place this right on top.
[Bob] Oh wow.
[Felicia] Just like that. And then I’ve got a ginger soy orange reduction here.
[Felicia] That we’re just gonna drizzle right on top.
[Bob] Oh great.
[Felicia] Nice and around it.
[Felicia] And there we have it.
There we go, mahi mahi over local rice right here at Deck 383. Felicia, thank you so much and congratulations on your first job here.
Okay, what a better place. I’d love to go to work here every day.

Folks, welcome back to the show. Down here at Southern Woods Plantation. Quail is king and Chevy trucks and Kurt Newbruck of the Chevy marketing manager for the southeastern region’s gonna talk to ya about, well, a truck that I’m excited about and I love drivin’ it, is my 2020 HD Duramax High Country. Kurt, man I gotta tell ya, Chevrolet has hit the target on this one.
Hey, we’re excited about this truck.
Well, tell me, you know, there’s a lotta changes in this thing, okay. Not from just the ride and the drive but there’s a lotta stuff that you guys did to it.
Yeah, I mean you can see from behind us here, we’ve got a 19 and a 20 as well but bigger and bolder truck for sure. We got a new 66 gas engine with 464 foot pounds of torque. We got the new Duramax diesel with the 10 speed Allison transmission. That’s got 910 foot pounds of torque and it’ll tow up to 35,500 pounds and it’s made to work. You can see trailering mirrors are standard on all trims so it’s ready to do the job.
Well, and you know one of the great things about it, you gotta tell everybody about the camera system, okay? ‘Cause that is just, that is a great piece of addition.
Yeah, that advanced trailing technology, it’s got eight cameras and 15 views so hopefully you’ve seen the ads on TV but it does a great job and a lotta safety involved with that as well.
Well, you guys have outdone yourselves. I’ve enjoyed havin’ you guys down here behind these bird dogs, okay. It’s always a pleasure to hunt with ya and, you know, I just can’t thank Chevrolet and all you guys so much for what you do and the dealers, okay? Show casin’ the dealers on the show today. It was great to get them out. It’s, you know, they do and they love the outdoors, just like you.
They do and Chevy trucks is there every step of the way and we’re proud to be a partner.
Well, folks, I tell you what. That’s our show from Southern Woods down here. Got a question I’m gonna ask you before we go, what’s in your garage? If it’s not a Chevy Silverado HD Duramax, well, maybe you need to get on down to your local dealer and you find one for your very own. As I always like to say, each and every week, the outdoors are my passion, I want it to be yours too. We’ll see you back here again next week on another episode of Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine.
This week Bob is back down at Southern Woods Plantation in beautiful Sylvester, Georgia, one of his favorite bird-hunting locations.
Joining Bob as his wing man, is Kurt Neubrecht, the Field Marketing Manager for General Motors in the southeastern region.
Grab your shotgun and get ready for some action!
[Bob] Folks, welcome to our show this week. I’m back down at Southern Woods Plantation in beautiful Sylvester, Georgia, one of my favorite bird-hunting locations ever, and with me today, and my guest, and my wing man, is Kurt Neubrecht. He’s the field marketing manager for Chevrolet in the southeastern region, and I tell you what. You know, Kurt, it’s always a pleasure to have you just with a shotgun in your hand, but I also have to say, about a year ago we were doing this, okay? We had a little bit of different conditions.
We did, and I’m glad to be back. It’s a little bit better this time, but looking forward to it. It should be a great time.
Well, you know, one of the things that I love about bird hunting is this fellowship and that sort of thing. You know, it’s bird hunting and trucks, man, I’m telling you what. And, you know, we’re also gonna get a chance to talk about the new Silverado Platform, the 2019, okay? I’m excited to hear from you on that, and maybe a sneak preview on what’s coming here soon.
Yeah, we’ll talk about all that. Looking forward to it. Should be a great time.
All right, well, listen. On the buggy we’ll be, and folks? Stay tuned, ’cause I’m telling ya, there’s gonna be birds flying, and Kurt? Well, he’s gonna be stylin’ and profilin’ this morning. Beautiful right there. What I thought initially, he might have been a jay. Fish on. Double up, double up, there. This looks like a birdy spot. Mm.
[Newt] Don’t keep coming on past the dogs. Come here, Jake. Get the birds.
[Bob] Dix, he’ll find ’em. Dix, he’ll find ’em. There we go. Oh! Ah, very nice shot. Nice shot, Kurt. I had kind of safety in mind. I really don’t like taking them behind me, you know? It’s better to be safe than sorry sometimes. Hey, that’s a great shot. Hup, there they go. Woo!
Two for two.
Woo, man. Mm, mm, mm, mm. All right, let me get reloaded here.
[Kurt] What do you think about that, Bob?
[Bob] Ah, buddy, let me tell you something. All right, Dixie. Ah. Well, I just flat missed that one. I’m sorry. I tell you what, the tree this morning just kind of got me hammered.
[Newt] Check it out, Dix.
[Bob] There it goes, Kurt. Your bird. Hey, nice shot. Nicely done, man.
[Kurt] Thank you.
[Bob] Nicely done.
Woo! Mm. What do you think, Dot? There more in there? Dot says I’m just faking you out. Okay. All right, man. But yeah, that’s awesome shooting over there.
He killed a double to start with.

Two fell right here and then one right back.
Give me bump, buddy. You on your game this morning.
Yeah, I guess I am.
You know, wow. I knew there was a reason I asked you to come quail hunting.
[Kurt] I’m feeling it today.
Yeah, I’m telling you, you are feeling it. Dixie says there’s birds in here.
[Kurt] I see one. Right there.
They’re like Shake ‘N Bake, but I helped.
[Kurt] Man, I’m on fire today.
Yeah, I tell you, bud, you are. Man! I ought to call you Quick-Draw McGraw. Okay. There we go. Man!
I don’t fool around.
Hey, listen. Nicely done, bub. Nicely done.
You know what it is? It’s the no snow.
It must be, but the Georgia snow.
I tell you, folks. A year ago, it was snowing hub-deep to a Ferris wheel. Nine degrees. Matter of fact, neither one of us could hit a thing.
Yeah, I think we were too cold!
Oh, man. It does make a difference. Woo. Well, folks, stay tuned. We’re gonna have more great bird-hunting action from Sylvester, Georgia, Southern Woods Plantation, and tell you what. I’m shooing a Browning 725 .410 this morning with Browning 2 3/4 ammo. Ah, the best there is. I’ve got both combinations. Stay tuned, we’ll be right back.

Well, listen, I tell you what. Here at Southern Woods, we really love coming down here, and, Newt, you know, it’s dogs like Dixie and Maggie and Dot and all the different dogs that you use, and I know you’re a dog trainer. You raise those dogs and so, that’s really what makes the hunt special for folks like us. So, I just got to give you a little bump out there, bro. But, I tell you what, man. It’s nice having you as a wing man, huh?
I appreciate it.
All right, let’s go get the next birds.

[Bob] Listen. You came in a Tahoe today.
[Bob] I think your wife would love, and the kids would love, to have a dog when you go home.
[Kurt] They would. Have you been talking to my wife?
[Bob] No, but I can.
[Newt] Dixie! Dixie, don’t do it.
I shouldn’t have done that. I knew I couldn’t catch up to that dog. Oh, there it goes. Folks, stay tuned. When we come back, we’re gonna have another great recipe on this week’s Sportsman’s Table.
[Announcer] The Sportsman’s Table is brought to you by The South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Whether you live in South Carolina or out of state, be sure to buy South Carolina-grown meats, vegetables, and fruits. Make sure your food is South Carolina-certified. It’s a matter of taste.
Welcome to Chive Blossom Café on The Sportsman’s Table this week, and joining me is my guest chef Andreann Geise with My Big Fat Greek Kitchen here in Myrtle Beach, and she’s got a great recipe for us. It’s got some fresh green tomatoes, certified SC-grown. Okay, Andreann. Well, I tell you what. I’m gonna let you tell everybody what you’re building here, okay? Because I love green tomatoes.
I’m baking a Greek dish called moussaka and I’m substituting the eggplant with green tomatoes. They’re a wonderful substitution for it, and they’re fresh, local tomatoes.
Oh, that’s great. Well, what’s the first step?
So, the first step in the dish is you’re gonna cook off some potatoes, and you’re gonna put them in a pan. They’re layered into a pan, and they’re just fork-tender.
[Bob] You want me to help you here a little bit?
Yeah, I’m gonna lay this over here. The green tomatoes were lightly floured and salted and sauteed up, and they’re just gonna be layered right on top of that.
So you’re basically just squeezing in there. The flour that I coated them with helps it make a nice sauce and thicken up while it cooks.
[Bob] And folks, if you want a copy of her recipe, just log onto bobredfern.com. Go to The Sportsman’s Table and it’ll be right there.
The next layer is gonna be meat sauce, and let me put this to the side. I browned some ground beef. You could do pork, you could do whatever, deer meat, if you want to. I browned it off, putting it back in a hot pan with a little bit of olive oil. Oops!
[Bob] There we go.
[Andreann] It’s decided to jump on me. There we go. Told you, everything’s so fresh, it’s alive here.
[Bob] Yeah, man, I’m helping you. I’m trying to get my certified flipping. Okay, there we go.
[Andreann] I’ve also sauteed some onions with a little bit of garlic, salt, and pepper.
[Bob] Am I shaking it right?
You’re shaking it right.
I’m gonna mix that up a little bit. And now this is my own spice blend that I’m putting in there.
It will be listed on your website, so I’m gonna give away my secrets.
Yeah, there you go.
And I like to make my own tomato sauce and I jar it, but you can buy whatever garden tomato sauce you like or your favorite tomato sauce, and that gets poured in.
Once the sauce has simmered a little bit and the flavors melded together, you pour the sauce on top, and you want a nice thick layer. The potatoes on the bottom are gonna drink a lot of this sauce. So you just pour it on there, get it pretty even. It doesn’t have to be exact.
[Bob] Oh yeah.
And we’re gonna press it down a little bit. We want it nice and flat because we have the last layer going on, which is a Béchamel sauce, but I wanted to add a little South to it, so I added some stone-ground grits to my Béchamel.
Oh, wow. Now, how long is this gonna have to cook for?
It’s gonna cook at 375 for about 35 to 40 minutes until you get a nice brown topping. Let me lay this over to the side here. And in this pan, I’ve got… Thank you.
I appreciate it.
I’m your sous chef today, how ’bout that?
Well, you’re a wonderful sous chef.
So, I’ve got the bechamel cooking. As you can see, it’s… It’s kind of like a real–
Yeah, it’s thin for grits but thick for a Béchamel, but it’s gonna bake and it’s gonna fluff up. Okay, so we pour that on top. And it’s not gonna puff too much, so you want it pretty much almost to the top of the pan, but not quite, and you just kinda spread it even.
[Bob] Okay, that’s easy.
Yeah, it’s a quick dish, and it’s all in one. You pretty much have everything you need in one dish. You got grits. You got potatoes, You got a nice meat sauce.
You do, here, let me help you with that.
Okay, put that to the side. So, this’ll go in the oven.
And we’ll put that in the oven and when it’s done, it’ll look like this.
[Bob] That is awesome. Look at that, mm. Got a little bit of salad on top there.
Yes, I do a little fresh salad. It’s got parsley, tomato, onions, a little bit of cucumber, and it gives it a little bit of color. It’s a little brightness to the dish.
There you go. Thank you so much for being our guest chef today.
I appreciate it.

[Kurt] Nice shot.
[Bob] Grab it up, girls.
[Kurt] Bird down. Oh.
[Bob] Dixie says maybe more. Maybe not.
Here she comes. Maggie’s got it. All right, dude, I’ve got to ask you. I know you’re older than me and you’ve been doing this stuff a long, long time, okay.
All right, talk to me.
Tell me how many years have you been guiding, how many years have you been raising dogs, ’cause you know, that’s a part of the sport that’s dying.
42, 42 years.
42 years, oh my goodness. Well, folks, our guide from Nashville, Georgia right here. Newt Hughes. He’s got some great dogs today. Southern Woods Plantation. It don’t get any better than that. Come on down. Log onto Bob’s Top 16. You too can come on down and book your bird hunt of a lifetime. Hey, great food, great place to stay, and great guides like this, okay? And dogs just like Dixie. All right, man, woo-hoo! Well, folks, before we go on our show this week, I’ve had some great bird hunting, and listen. This guy was just target-on with all of… I tell you, bird hunting, you making it all over today.
It was a great time.
Well, you know, and folks, I wanna take just one quick look at the new 2019 Silverado. The all-new Silverado. This one behind me happens to be mine, and these guys have put me in such a great ride. You see me in Chevvers all the time, and you have for over 18 years plus, and these guys never cease to amaze me and what Chevy and all the engineers, and, well, just everybody that goes into building these great trucks, what they do to these trucks to make them for us and the outdoors. Great, and you’ve got to talk about this new Platform. It’s all-new.
Yeah, all new from the ground up. Re-engineered. Basically, it’s the strongest, most advanced Silverado that we’ve ever made. They’re 450 pounds lighter than the previous generation. It’s got air Kurtains in the front for aerodynamic efficiency. It’s got a new trailering package integrated with the camera. LED headlights in the front and rear. Easy-lift locking and folding rear tailgate, so a lot of great features in this new truck.
[Bob] Plus, it is the first one that they’ve put a lift kit in.
It is. You are correct. This is the first Chevrolet Silverado with a factory two-inch lift. So, as you can see, it really makes that truck look good. It’s the Z71 package on top of that, so it’s a dynamite look on that truck.
Well, the Trail Boss, listen. I get great looks wherever it goes. Man, on the road, and I just can’t thank you guys enough for what you do for us here in the outdoors. Not only on our show, but what you do in the outdoors in general across this county, because everybody that drives a Chevy, everybody that proudly displays that bow tie, it’s a tribute to the folks at General Motors and Chevrolet.
It is. Thank you.
You’re wild, man.
We gotta do it again. This time, maybe it’s a rod and reel? Now that you’ve mastered the shotgun.
That’s right, on to the next sporting event.
Yeah, man, we’re gonna do it.

Guys, I’m ready to shoot some birds.

[Buddy] No it wasn’t too good.
Hey you want some advice? Seriously, try closing just one eye. Don’t close both eyes.
[Bob] Oh my goodness. BJ come here. Come here just a second. I want the folks out there to understand what it’s like being a guide on a major plantation like this, real quick. I mean I know it’s got to be stressful for you, because you guys have go so many clients that are coming through here.
Yeah, some days it is. Most of the people, I say 95% of the people we have, are… You know, some what experienced gun havers, maybe not hunters, but they’ve handled guns. We get a few every once in a while that are new and we have to kind of help them along. But for the most part, I say 95% of people truly appreciate what the guide is trying to do for them.
Every once in a while you get some that have no idea, really, they have no idea when they leave.
You’re exactly right…
For the most part most of them, most of the people that come here you know, have bird hunted before and you want them to have a good experience because, you want them to come back.
Absolutely. You know when they come back everybody wins.
Well and you know the good thing too about coming down to Southern Woods is, you guys all 16 of you guides down here take the time. Even for the novice and the ones that don’t get out, you take the time to coach, teach, and mentor them and get them back up to speed again so they can enjoy…
Well we want them to have a good time, we want em to come back.
[Bob] Yeah. Well Rudy, there have got to be more birds where that came from. Alright bro lets get on it.
Alright, find some quail.
Alright come on Buddy!
[Brian] Here Rudy.
[Bob] Alright, Buddy’s got em, Kate’s got em, Rudy’s got em. Everybody’s on em.
[Brian] Rudy get out of there.
Come on Rudy here, not yet, whoa. Whoa no, not yet. Whoa, whoa. Okay.
[Bob] Nice shot Buddy.
[Brian] Nice shot. Nicely done Buddy. Nicely done.
[Brian] Rudy, here.

[BJ] Got a dead bird right here, let’s see what he is.
[Bob] Alright. While we’re doing that guys, come on over here.
[Brian] Shooting with an audience.
[Bob] Now I have to ask y’all… What do y’all think of Southern Woods so far, as the experience of coming down here? Buddy?
I gotta tell ya it’s the … it’s the habitat is just fantastic, the food’s good, the lodging’s good and you can’t beat this guide. He is fantastic. This is a great place.
I tell ya what, Brian, I tell ya what, that pork chop we had for supper last night, man!
Good lord wasn’t that something?
Put me to bed.
Well you know as conservationists and sportsmen, you guys have done this all your life. I mean, to me, of course bird hunting is just something I love doing and I know you guys do too.
Over the back of a great bird dog, and I know you’re partial to this new…
One down here, Buddy, too. And then you’ve got your own.
So, you know, I just think coming together the comradeship and all of that it’s just a great experience.
It doesn’t get any better than this. I mean this is just beautiful, beautiful. I’m excited to be here.
I’m excited to have you guys.
I’m glad I’m a friend of Bob.
Guys I’m telling ya.
Man its awesome. Well I think there’s more out here, okay. I think I hear Drake, Jill.
And the best dog they got, it’s named Buddy, look at that.
That Buddy, there he goes. Alright men, lets go get some more. Nice Brian, nice, nice shot.
[Brian] You said shoot it.
[Bob] Nice chucker, whoo! Oh man. Wait a minute we got another point here, get reloaded. Get reloaded.
[Brian] There’s that bonus bird.
[Bob] I’m tellin’ ya. There you go, take him!
[Brian] Ahh. There you go.
[Bob] You got him, alright Buddy!
[Brian] There you go Buddy.
[Bob] Buddy takin up the rear! Alright.
[BJ] Here’s a decoy, right here. Come here boss, come here boss. Here, here, here, here.
Whoo, I’m tellin’ ya, a 747 hunt.
Well, listen. As we get reset here with the dogs, let’s talk a little bit about the congressional sports and caucus. You’ve been a member a number of years and those things that are passionate for you, what does that really mean to you to be a part of that group of legislators?
Well it’s a great organization Bob and its a bunch of legislators and the beauty of what we do is not about party. It’s about the Great Outdoors, it’s about, you know, the shooting sports, it’s about fishing, it’s just about preserving a way of life that this country was founded upon. It’s going out, it’s not only about taking game, it’s how to prepare it and how to be thankful for it and thanking the good Lord for one, giving us this great earth that we can go out and harvest these things. Some days you just don’t harvest anything, but, I mean, look where we are today.
I mean this is just absolutely wonderful and it’s about access and preserving what we do have and making sure we have good natural resources and quality air and water and those types of things for the habitat, the things that we take.
[Bob] Well the great thing for us as hunters and outdoors men is for legislators like you and the rest of the group that understand what this means to the rest of us out here across the… well not just in South Carolina, but across the country.
Oh absolutely and currently we got 48 states. Hawaii and Rhode Island are the only two we don’t have, that we’re currently working on. Rhode Island, I hope we’re going to secure it this year. But anywhere you go and it’s just a great brother and sisterhood that we have. It’s male, female, Republican, Democrat. I mean, it is absolutely phenomenal. But when we get together the beauty of it is, the folks out there that are just so divided on politics and just hate politics and all these politicians. We never talk party, we talk about outdoors. We talk about hunting, fishing, taking of game, trapping, shooting sports you know. Make sure the kids that are coming up today in high school and show them the proper way to treat a fire arm, to respect it. And not these video games or things that we do but absolutely and try to pass that on. I mean, we had that fortune that our parents would pass that along and did different things, but we got to make sure that’s still there for those kids.
Brian, thank you for all that you do man.
But, I tell you what behind these Brownings, man, listen I think there’s more birds out there. I’m thinking your Buddy’s on point over there.
I tell ya, he is.
Well lets go, lets go find them.
[Commentator] Coming up we head to the Sportsman’s Table for another great South Carolina certified recipe, featuring fresh and locally grown South Carolina vegetables and South Carolina harvested shrimp. The Sportsman’s Table is brought to you by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Whether you live in South Carolina or out of state, be sure to buy South Carolina grown meats, vegetables, and fruits. Make sure your food is South Carolina certified. It’s a matter of taste.
Welcome folks for another Sportsman’s Table edition here. We are in beautiful Murrells Inlet, South Carolina at Wicked Tuna Restaurant and I tell ya what, Ed Dombrowski, he is the owner of Lee’s Farm here at beautiful Murrells Inlet. You’ve seen Ed on the show before. Hey, Drunkin’ Shrimp, you’ve gotta remember.
Yeah, that’s right.
We love havin’ Ed come back and here, we’re on location at Wicked Tuna. Ed..
Great to see you again Bob.
Man, it’s good to see you.
Thanks for having me again.
Oh you’re welcome. What do you got for us today?
Today we’re gonna do a little shrimp dish, Shrimp Scampi, but I’m gonna do a little bit more Mediterranean style. Typically, when you think Shrimp Scampi, it’s more like Italian. Here I’m gonna make it more Mediterranean Greek. We’re gonna add little bit of feta cheese. We’re gonna use zucchini, things like that.
Oh wow, okay.
Alright, so what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna get some oil and butter in the pan.
There you go.
Gotta get that sizzle goin’.
Oh, yeah. Gotta put the butter in.
And, you know, the great thing too about these farms, you guys, it’s all about local South Carolina.
Excellent. The butter, everything.
Shrimp is local. A lot of the produce that you see here we actually grow right at the market.
So Well we got this goin’ here, I’m gonna throw some shallots. Gotta love those shallots
Gotta have shallots.
Gotta have shallots. Gotta have the garlic. Okay, I made these more like a sliver opposed to a mince. So they’ll get almost like little chips so they have a little texture to them.
[Bob] Well then your breath would be…
[Ed] Exactly, yeah exactly. Alright, I’m gonna throw a little bit oregano and thyme in it, which is, again that Mediterranean flavor.
[Bob] Gosh, you just smell the flavor.
Exactly. Now we’re gonna throw our shrimp in.
Okay now, lot of folks will argue how long to cook the shrimp, okay.
Very quick. Couple minutes, that’s all we wanna do. Is we wanna get ’em just pink.
[Bob] Now from sight, is just where they start to turn red.
[Ed] When they turn red, that’s what we wanna do.
Now instead of using pasta, ’cause a lot of people use pasta for scampis, I’m using zucchini and I spiraled it. Okay, so everything’s nice and fresh.
[Bob] Ahh, okay.
[Ed] Okay, so we’ll add that in there.
[Bob] Oh, neat.
[Bob] Now that’s a first.
[Ed] Yup. You know, a lot of people went to whole gluten free and stuff like that.
[Ed] So we do that and again you’ll notice it’s all fresh South Carolina grown. Mix that around a little bit.
[Bob] Now how long to you usually cook the zucchini.
Again, just like shrimp, real quick. Just ’cause it’s real nice and thin.
So it’s still gonna be crunchy.
I’m gonna throw a little bit more butter in there.
Okay, now I’m gonna throw a little bit, crumble a little bit of feta cheese in there.
Okay. A little bit of lemon zest.
[Ed] Mix it around.
[Bob] You know, that zucchini looks just like noodles.
[Ed] It does. Alright.
[Bob] And there we go, Scampi. Mm.
Now it’s gonna be ready to plate. So what we’re gonna do here… put that up on there, like that and then we’re gonna finish it off with a little…
Ahh, a little decoration.
Little bit more decoration. Gotta have some color on there. Okay, a little bit of lemon zest. Lemon goes great
[Bob] Oh yeah.
with this. Little bit more feta. Who doesn’t like cheese.
Yeah, there you go.
Okay and then finish her off with a little bit of parsley. And there you have, you have a Mediterranean Shrimp Scampi.
That is just fabulous. Look at there folks, another great recipe this week from Ed Dombrowski at Lee’s Farm, here at beautiful Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. I tell you what, I’ll let you hold that. I ain’t gonna shake your hand.
No definitely not.

[Buddy] Pick him up, good boy.
[Brian] Look at him.
[Bob] Look at that. Awe, looky here. Ha, ha, ha, wow.
[BJ] Bring him here.
[Bob] Amazing, fourteen weeks? Can you imagine?
[Bob] Oh my goodness.
[Brian] On point.
Is there not anybody that ever not love a puppy.
[Brian] I tell ya.
[Bob] I’m tellin’ you right there, wow. Rock the man, fourteen weeks old
[Brian] Alright Rock, time to work it boy.
I would like to buy that dog as well. But I don’t whether we’re gonna get there or not. You’ll just have to stay tuned.
[BJ] Alright Brian, you see all birds?
[Brian] No I’ve been missing it.
[Bob] Get ’em Brian, nice shot Brian. Nicely done. You had all the birds your way.
[Bob] Nicely done.
[Brian] Thank you.
[BJ] Whoa, whoa.
[Bob] Oo, look at that. Stopped on a dime.
[Brian] Buddy gonna back him up.
[BJ] Whoa, whoa.
Alright guys listen, we’ve spent a full day at Southern Woods Plantation and I asked you this morning, when we got in here, dinner was awesome, okay, y’all enjoyed the night stay, but tell me, after a full day of bird hunting here, what do you all think now.
It’s awesome. I’ve never hunted South Georgia but I’d definitely tell everyone to come to Southern Woods Plantation. It is one blessed place and birds fly great and the people are fantastic here.
You just can’t believe the habitat. I mean, it’s the most beautiful, it’s like they used to hunt in the old days, you know, with pines and broom sage like this, it’s just unbelievable. Just doesn’t exist everywhere.
Well my mission is almost complete, okay. I’ve got you guys both to shootin’ a Browning 410 and the 725 and so I know that’s gonna be in both Brian and your future, okay. We then have got you with a cocker puppy on the list, okay, and I know your wife is already on board with that, okay. And rock is awesome, I know. That was an exception this morning.
It truly was, I mean, the first time that he actually flushed a bird and the first time he retrieved a bird, I shot the bird. So, I fell in love with him, right off. I mean, I keep going up on the price but so far he hadn’t decided to sell it.
Tell ya, I know, we may have to do an alternate plan here, but the other thing that I got to work on here is I got to put Chevy’s in driveways and I gotta get one, you gotta get a new one, okay, and I gotta get one in Brian’s. Are we gonna make it?
I think so. I’m gonna sell mine and I can buy yours.
Okay, we can make that happen.
And I’ll go buy it before he has to buy that dog ’cause the price will go up on that truck ’cause he’s gonna try to make up the difference to get that dog.
There you go.
And the price keeps going up on the dog ’cause you had him in your arms the day he put him on camera so he’s now a star.
See, now he’s a T.V. star.
Oh my gosh guys. I just wanna tell ya both how appreciative I am and honored to have you guys as my wing men today on the show. That’s what our show’s about is showcasing guys like you that have that passion, who have grown up this. And I know, Brian, all the things that you do in the legislature both in the state of South Carolina and at the national level on the caucus, is just instrumental in preserving what we do. Buddy, you with your former directorship as the Director of Parks Rec. and Tourism, I mean, tourism, that’s your life and it still is. And both of you guys, it’s just been an honor and privileged to have both of you all.
Oh, thank you so much for inviting us.
We couldn’t have had a better day.
We can’t have a better spokesman in South Carolina than you for the Great Outdoors, I mean, you televise and showcase what we have across this country and you’ve always been a friend of the outdoors whether it’s fishin’ or hunting and as far as the Association of Sportmen’s caucuses, you always do a fabulous job with helping us to promote our cause and teach folks the Great Outdoors is a wonderful place. Walk out the door and just experience what God created.
You’re absolutely right and guys with that I’ll tell ya. Folks, as I always like to say, the outdoors is my passion. I know it is for these two guys. We will see you right back here again next week and we want the outdoors to be your passion too. Next week Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine is gonna be somewhere around the country. We’ll see ya then.
