Well we finally got it done. Second time’s a charm apparently! My son Jackson and I went out to DB Hunting Ranch in late November but there were no hogs to be seen that day. Our second time out together was this past Sunday when we had the whole ranch to ourselves and we finally connected with a nice size Texas wild hog. Here’s the video or you can watch it on my video page. Thanks for your support over the years!
Another year comes to a close and I have been hard at work in the outdoor media space like usual. This year marks a full year of podcasts every two weeks and I wanted to share what I consider some of the best and most downloaded ones with you. Thanks again for listening and please consider subscribing to the show on your phone or other mobile device if you haven’t done so already.

From my formative years as a young man, I have always enjoyed writing. In my early 20’s I got into hunting and fishing more and started to write about my experiences in an effort to inform and educate others, young and old alike, about what I was learning being in the outdoors. This month marks another feature article in Texas Fish & Game Magazine. Like I always say, it is a dream come true to write for the largest outdoor publication in the great state of Texas. Thanks as always for reading this blog and here is a copy of that article:
Another day, another website goes live! And this time it is my very own. I created this blog in 2013 at the suggestion of an organization I was a part of and it gave me yet another outlet to reach the world. Before then, I launched the Dustin’s Projects/Warncke Enterprises website in 2012 as a “hub” for all that I do in the outdoors. After building multiple website for clients, including this blog for myself, in WordPress, I decided a few months ago to rebuild my main website in WordPress. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out http://dustinsprojects.com/ and the things I am engaged with now and please plug in somewhere. Thank you for all of your support over the years and for watching, reading and listening! You guys rock!
Life has been busy but I have been “going hard in the paint” as they say in the basketball world. I had a great interview with Marcus Heflin from Christian Surf Fishing Adventures and an awesome long fishing weekend in Buras, Louisana. Here are two podcasts that cover both.
Pictured below is John Oliverio, the inventor abd owner of the Power-Pole shallow water anchor and myself with some of our catches at the Buras Marsh Media Bash in mid-August.
Thanks for reading, watching and listening!
It has been a busy year to say the least. In July alone, I was on the road for two weeks at the ICAST fishing trade show and then Camp Agape for the second week. I serve at Camp Agape, which is a grief camp for children ages 7-12, every summer I am able and I do it because I love to enrich the lives of our next generation. It is a hard camp in a lot of ways but I get a lot out of it, as do many of the other adults who serve there. The situations and backgrounds these kids come from are many times tough but our message at the camp is that Jesus has defeated death and we trust in God to heal us. The last day of this camp, we took a detour to the regularly scheduled program and went fishing with some leftover biscuits from breakfast that morning. Yes, I said biscuits! It was awesome to see kids having fun in the outdoors with a simple pursuit. Some of these kids had never been fishing before. Others hadn’t been in a long time.
I tell you this all not to boast that I am helping others by volunteering but, instead, to inspire you and others to get out and give back. I have so much gratitude in my life and giving back is one of the ways I show that love. Thanks for the support and staying in touch!
This year has been crazy but man has the wild ride been fun. I have never traveled as much or “crushed it” as often as I have this year and things are rocking. It has been a year ago this month that I have been doing The Best of the Outdoors podcast nearly every two weeks on an every-other-Thursday release schedule. I have had great guests and lots of new listeners and I am thankful for all of you listening. You can check out our latest episodes at www.FishGame.com or subscribe to the show and I posted a couple of recent shows here.
I am off on a plane to ICAST for a week and, the following week, I am volunteering at Camp Agape which is a bereavement summer camp for kids ages 7-12 who have lost a loved one.
Why do I do so much? There are many reasons. For one, I want to be a source of inspiration for others and lead people to a deeper relationship to God and Jesus Christ. I am not afraid to say it. I am driven and have had a rock solid work ethic since a very young age. I love to serve others and educate through my many projects. Thanks for sharing my work with others in the outdoors. I am finally living my dream and I encourage you to go for yours too. As always, thank you so much for your support!
