Spend a few day chasing ducks by day and huddling in hole-in-the-wall Mexican food restaurants at night teaches you a lot about the folks with whom you’re sharing the best of times. Today’s guest is no exception. Carlos Gomez recently retired as a game warden Oklahoma Department Wildlife Conservation. How’d Gomez growing up hunting in Oklahoma? How’d he get started into this particular line of work? How’d he work cases, and what were some of the most memorable? What’s his sobering opinion on how today’s hunters may or may not have changed during his career? What’s his new role as Director of Conservation for the best American-made decoy on earth entail? Like shooting green-winged teal that appear out of nowhere on a narrow Oklahoma River stretch, this tailgate episode delivers one shot from the hip after another.
