Creative Conservation - Elk Solutions

In this episode (episode #230) of Leupold's Hunt Talk Radio, Randy talks with Brian Yablonski of the Property & Economic Research Center (PERC) about a new strategy to increase winter elk tolerance by private landowners who own most of the winter range north of Yellowstone National Park. Brucellosis is a disease for which elk are a risk to cattle, with strange Federal rules placing huge economic liability on cattle operators. PERC has started a brucellosis compensation fund to lower landowner financial risk when elk winter on their lands and bring brucellosis risk with them. Using partnerships, PERC has brought together landowners, hunters, and environmental groups to find solutions that allow for higher tolerance of elk on their winter range and create a solution that helps wildlife using private lands.

Hunters No Longer Needed - A Cautionary Tale

In this episode (201) of Leupold's Hunt Talk Radio, Randy has guests from Washington State to discuss the rapid deterioration of hunter's and angler's voices in the state wildlife management system and the anti-hunting slant of the Wildlife Commission's new appointments. Chris Hager and Dan Wilson give a history that started with the Wildlife Commission rejecting a spring black bear season that was supported by the wildlife agency and now brings a strong bias against science and the benefit of hunters and hunting as a wildlife management tool. A cautionary lesson to all hunters, no matter where you live, that we must pay attention and be actively engaged.
