    Aaron Kindle - Outdoor Feast Podcast EP:027





    On this episode of the Outdoor Feast Podcast, Todd is chatting with Aaron Kindle.  Aaron is the Director of Sporting Advocacy at the National Wildlife Federation (NWF).  He is also a fellow podcaster!  Aaron is the host of the NWF Outdoors Podcast.  The National Wildlife Federation has been around since 1936.  NWF is a conservation organization that began with Ding Darling, Teddy Roosevelt, and Aldo Leopold.  To this day they have been fighting for the wildlife and public lands we enjoy today.  To learn more check out their website.



    Aaron is based out of Colorado where he spent some time while growing up. The other portion of his childhood was spent in Wyoming where you could find him hunting and fishing.  He then attended the University of Montana where he got a degree in Environmental Studies.  To this day he is an avid hunter and fisherman.  However, there was a time in his life when he left the hunting world because he was starting to see things he did not like.  He eventually found his way back to it and has been fighting to preserve it ever since.  To learn more about Aaron and NWF, listen in to this fun and informative episode of the Outdoor Feast Podcast!

    Outdoor Writer, Kristen Schmitt - Outdoor Feast Podcast EP:026





    On this episode of the Outdoor Feast Podcast, Todd Waldron has a great conversation with Kristen Schmitt.  Kristen is an author by trade but it has not always been that way.  She started, like many, in corporate America.  After working in this setting for many years she and her husband decided they had enough and they moved from Detroit, Michigan to a rural Vermont home.  One driver of this change was the desire to achieve a lifestyle focused more on the outdoors. She wanted to eat more naturally and to have a better connection with where her food comes from.  This was so important to her that she even started raising her own chickens and buying meat from a butcher that lives next door.



    In today's podcast Kristen also discusses her journey to becoming a writer.  It didn't come easy for her.  Writing used to just be a hobby of hers but with the support of her family and an adventurous spirit she worked hard to become the writer she is today.  Now writing is her full-time job.  She has been published in many notable journals and magazines.  Check out Kristen Schmitt's amazing work on her website.  Please listen in to the Outdoor Feast Podcast for an in-depth discussion on books, food, and the many challenges of getting outdoors with children.  This was definitely a fun conversation.

    Connection to the Land – Outdoor Feast Podcast (EP:025)

    Connection to the Land - Outdoor Feast Podcast EP:025





    During this conversation on the Outdoor Feast Podcast Todd has a chat with Katie Fernholz.  Katie is the CEO of Dovetail Partners.  They are a consulting firm around responsible land and forest management.  One of their focuses is how we connect to the land and why that is so important. They discuss the intersection between hunting/fishing and responsible land management. Katie Fernholz was born and currently live in Minnesota.  Her early days on a Minnesota farm led to her connection with the land.  These early connections really started her on the path to where she is now as a thought leader and advocate in land management.  She is a forester by training.  Between connection to nature and her education as a forester, she has solidified her place as one of the leading minds in land management.

    Floating Coast - Outdoor Feast Podcast EP:24





    On this episode of the Outdoor Feast Podcast, Todd has a conversation with Dr. Bathsheba Demuth.  Bathsheba is an Assistant Professor of History and Environment and Society at Brown University.  She is the author of the book "Floating Coast - An Environmental History of the Bering Strait". This book is a history of the Russian and Alaskan sides of the Bering Straight.  For those who are unaware the Bering Straight is a body of water where Alaska and Russia almost join together.



    When she was only eighteen, Bathsheba moved to an indigenous village in the Canadian Arctic Circle.  During this time, she learned how her actions would effect the animals and landscapes where she lived.  This had changed her perspective on the world around her.  Listen in as Todd and Bathsheba have an amazing conversation about how we can be more aware of how we effect our surrounding world.  You will also hear some great stories that Bathsheba has accumulated from her time in the Arctic.



    To follow along more with Dr. Bathsheba Demuth check her out on her website, twitter, and/or instagram!

    Hunting Maine with Brent West - Outdoor Feast Podcast EP:23





    On this episode of the Outdoor Feast Podcast, Todd sits down with Brent West.  Brent is the executive director of the High Peaks Alliance and a proud resident of Maine.  The High Peaks Alliance is a volunteer, non-profit organization founded in 2007 and made up of outdoor lovers of all types.  The Alliance comes from many different backgrounds, hunters and non-hunters alike.  In general, their main goal is to work together to ensure public access in the High Peaks region of Maine.  Maine has a remarkable 17 million acres of forest.  Previously, much of this land was private ground open for public access.  However, this access has been limited recently due to the land owners finding upkeep and maintenance with public use to be too big a task.  For this reason, Brent and the High Peak Alliance are working hard to open this land back up for public use.

    Todd and Brent start by talking about Brent's background growing up and how it shaped his career.  According to Brent, there are many great upland bird hunting opportunities in Maine.  However, not many people are aware of this.  But Brent is no stranger to sharing them with those who want to learn.  Brent was recently featured on an episode of "Cal's Week in the Field" by MeatEater.  During this episode Brent shares with Cal the wonders of Maine Woodcock and Grouse hunting.  You can watch that episode HERE.

Episode 7

As a new turkey hunter, episode 7 was worth the subscription itself. It’s absolutely packed full of useful information for a novice.
