    Ep. 46: Act Now - Preserve your Right to Hunt!

    Ep. 46: Act Now - Preserve your Right to Hunt!

    Grizzly bear hunting was banned in BC and now there are efforts in place to ban the wolf hunt.  Will it stop there, or is all hunting under attack?  Predator hunting, trophy hunting, and “the social licence to operate” is what this episode is all about. 
     
    Travis speaks with Steve Hamilton and Greg Rensmaag of the Wild Sheep Society of BC and the Talk is Sheep Podcast about this emotionally charged topic and what is the best way to work in harmony with nature and to pragmatically protect our natural resources.
