I had to write an entire essay reviewing this podcast and after in depth analysis I can say without a doubt that this podcast is truly amazing.
Amazing Man! He is a leader in this modern world of Conservation
Anyone who has not spend time reading or listening to Shane’s work is truly missing out on the true philosophy behind the modern dichotomy of hunting and conservation. He is a pioneer in his teaching and research. Most people who live wildlife and wild places will appreciate this podcast. And it is but an iceberg of the mind behind it all. We are o a collision course of change and we could unite and fight the expansion of land devouring globalism or we will be left with little to enjoy in the out of doors besides a bird feeder.
Thanks for all you do and have done for the animals and those of us who love them.
P.S. i am a hunter but wasn’t always. I was once an anti because I did not understand the true meaning of sharing and being involved with nature on a deeper level. On top of that I despise feed lots and inhumanity of livestock.
I come here to learn
And I always leave realizing that I know less than I thought I did before. And that’s a great feeling.
