    Hunting Leases, Are they Bad or Good for Conservation and the future of Waterfowl Hunting?

    Hunting Leases, Are they Bad or Good for Conservation and the future of Waterfowl Hunting?

    Disclaimer- Ben dropped his microphone which transformed him from a Tenor to a Baritone/Bass and he was too lazy to make himself sound normal in post-production. His regular voice will be back next week, so for the time being enjoy Ben's voice matching his mustache.
    In this episode, Ben, Alex, Matt, and a friend of the show Hunter from BRH, begin to unpack the question -"As they exist now, are hunting leases good or bad for the future of Duck Hunting?" ... and maybe we shouldn't have!

    Topics Discussed- The genesis of the argument, this history of the lease, the state of affairs, the empath hunter begging the middle-class farmer, nuance over action, action over nuance, redefining Access, Huntin' the highwater mark, Polls and Honey Holes, Conservative Socialism, Name Calling, Red Herrings, Canada Hunting Leases, Data Skewing and Leaning Polls, Libertarians, Devolving into Semantics, HunterFarmer Coalition, Conservation Organizations and the silent majority, Rich Dad Poor Duck Hunter, Money is conservation, we're all jerks, we're all in this together, A tale of two duck hunters, Hunting as an economic driver and a lot of other crap!

Best podcast for getting into waterfowl hunting

This was my first season hunting waterfowl and this is by far has the most useful information. I worked at Amazon this last year and listened to about 45 hours of podcasts a week. Other waterfowl podcasts like freelance duck hunting are good but to me they seem more like 3000 and 4000 level hunting and not as relatable to the new hunter. I have listened to some episodes several times they have such good info. Thanks from putting out such great content. One topic I’d like to hear about is buying decoys. The area I hunted in Colorado has had a range from woodies to canvas backs and I’d like some advice on what to buy.
