  • #108: the North American Model of Conservation

    The North American Conservation Model. We toss this term around pretty frequently on our show, and we hear it mentioned on other podcasts and platforms on a regular basis . . . but, what does it mean? This week, we take a run at unpacking the model, in a quick hit fashion, to at least bring it to the surface for future conversations. Plus – Our favorite redheads, Nate’s weekly football allegiance update, Emily recommends a curling iron (sorta), and more!

  • #51: Ducks as College Football Teams

    Duck season is fast approaching.  College Football Season has already started. How does a wayward outdoors podcast combine the two? Simple – we take the AP Top 10 and assign them duck species that correlate to their various program identities. Oh.  And Emily drafts country music singers.  And maybe rappers. If that sounds like the most ridiculous 40 minutes you’ve ever spent, wait until you click play! PS – if you’re in Florida, and hunt the Kissimmee River Basin, make plans to be at this meeting!
