The 7 Tenets, how the model is funded, is the model the blanket framework for all conservation, what is the path forward for both funding and these guidelines, why private lands AND public lands AND parks all matter, Chronic Wasting Disease, the Land Water Conservation Fund, the Great American Outdoors Act, Missouri v.

  • #142: Wading In

    Waders. Every duck hunter has a love/hate relationship with waders. On one hand, when they work, they’re the greatest invention of all time.  But.  When they don’t. Well – let’s just say it can make for a very “moist” season. What do we look for in waders, what do we like, dislike, want, and what we bought! Plus, free advice on non-lead shot, Foster Dogs, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Mesh Pants, unity sandwiches, the Cape Sable Seaside Sparrow and the Great American Outdoors Act!

  • Virtual ICAST with FWC: #2 – TrophyCatch

    FWC’s TrophyCatch Program is an awesome opportunity for anglers to show off their big bass, have an amazing chance at some amazing prizes, and an opportunity for the state to collect catch data on these monster fish!

Today, Ryan Hamm of FWC and Travis are joined by Drew Dutterer and KP Clements, both from FWC’s Freshwater…
