    The Privatization of Elk Hunting Part 3 - Montana Could Be Next!

    The Privatization of Elk Hunting Part 3 - Montana Could Be Next!

    Today we are recording with:
    Marcus Strange - Montana Wildlife Federation
    John Sullivan - Montana BHA Chair / Volunteer
    Andrew Posewitz - Hardcore Montana Elk Hunter
    We are discussing Montana elk tag allocation. Proposed changes that will take tags away from the general tag hunter and how to navigate the possibility of Montana elk hunting going towards a similar model that New Mexico has in place!
    Here are links to Montana FWP Commissioners and Commission Meetings: 
    https://fwp.mt.gov/aboutfwp/commission
    Here is the agenda for upcoming FWP Commission meeting. As you can see they will be dealing with a lot of issues, including crossbows in archery-only season, grizzly bear relocation, and new 454 agreements providing elk tags to landowners in exchange for access. https://fwp.mt.gov/about-fwp/news/commissionagendas/2021/october-28-2021-commission-meeting

    The Privatization of Elk Hunting Part 2 - NW Wildlife Federation

    Today we are recording with Jesse Deubel, the executive director for New Mexico Wildlife Federation and Ray Trejo. Both guests are passionate elk hunters who reside in New Mexico, we are extending the conversation of how New Mexico continues to support the privatization of elk hunting. If you are a regular blue-collar elk hunter, resident or non-resident, this is an important podcast to educate yourself on how the North American Model of Conservation is being ignored by the state of New Mexico.

    Today we are discussing the EPLUS program of the state of New Mexico. Special guest Joel Gay from New Mexico breaks down why he and the BHA NM chapter are strongly opposing the current structure that ends up yielding 13,000 elk tags in the hands of private landowners in New Mexico.
