#62: Hunting and Ecology with David Mizejewski

If you don’t know David Mizejewski, he’s a naturalist, spokesperson, and television personality for the National Wildlife Federation.  He’s appeared on the Today Show, Wendy Williams, Conan, Good Morning America, and more, as well as hosted shows on Animal Planet and NatGeo.

We invited him to join us to discuss his perspective on hunting . . . An ecologist who doesn’t hunt, we felt like this was a great opportunity to hear from a voice who is both important in conservation and could provide a non-hunter’s point of view on some of our favorite pastimes . . .

Follow David here: WebsiteInstagramTwitterFacebook

Keeps:

Nate:  Keeping our fingers crossed for full funding of the Land Water Conservation Fund – LWCF

Travis: The new Tactacam 5.0 – what GoPro wishes it could be!  Message Travis for more details . . .

Emily: The Staves . . . particularly this cover of Jolene . . .
