This Week on The Revolution with Jim and Trav: Fowl Fever
Trade in your rifle for a shotgun, this week on The Revolution it’s fowl – we’re talking ducks and geese. Tune in as the experts’ key in on flyway hotspots and dish on calling, concealment, decoying and more. Plus, learn to navigate the changing behavior of birds as their habitats and food sources shift and they become conditioned to hunting pressure. Joining the Revolution will be Chad Belding, host of “The Fowl Life” on Outdoor Channel. We’ll also talk to Jared Hinton of Federal Premium Ammunition and John Gechter from Rainin’ Skies Waterfowl. Finally, Trey Benton, PRCA Professional Bull Rider will stop by as he prepares to ride in his 5th National Finals Rodeo. Jim and Trav’s Fowl Fever broadcast is presented by Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network and MyOutdoorTV!

Building a Better Decoy Spread with John Gechter
Quite possibly the most critical decision a waterfowl hunter has to make is where to hunt on any given day. But, once you’ve found the right location, it’s all about the spread. Decoys can be used to manipulate waterfowl in a way that attract them to a specific location, but also work to give hunters better shot opportunities. So, how do you go about making a convincing spread and what should you know about decoys to maximize your success afield? John Gechter with Rainin’ Skies Waterfowl in Denver, Colorado joins us for a lesson in strategically positioning decoys.
