Wild turkey season starts in about 2 weeks. Prime Time Pursuits are a guide service for hunters in Eastern Ontario. Jeff Gill has been tracking birds and setting out the blinds. Jeff joins Pete and Steveto talk about this year’s hunt, and why turkey hunters are addicted to the chase.

On the Go Fish in Ontario segment, Pete and Steve catches up with Gary Wallace from Timberwolf Lodge on Nagagami Lake. This was the host lodge for an episode of the Fish’n Canada TV program. The northern pike and walleye fishing is amazing and so are the meals and accommodations!

Do open salmon pen fish cages on the British Columbia coastal waters threaten the survival of the native salmon fishery? This debate has raged for years! Just recently, the link between pen raised fish and heart and skeletal inflammation (HMSI) was established. HMSI infects an estimated 80% of all pen raised salmon in the coastal waters.
