    Randy Newberg, A Titan In Public Land Advocacy

    Randy Newberg, A Titan In Public Land Advocacy

    The discussion of public land and the notion of transferring federal land to the state is plagued with misconceptions, political messaging, and sometimes flat out lies. 
    Randy and I discuss the issue of land transfers and the consequences that lay beneath the surface of how it's promoted. 
    Randy has decades of advocacy for the North American hunter. From capital meetings to sitting on the board of the RMEF, Randy has proven himself invaluable to the hunting community. His impact on public land, legislation, advocacy, and his endless willingness to be a voice for hunting is far-reaching. We can all learn from Randy and his leadership. I'm proud to call him a friend.

Great info

I’m new to elk hunting with 2019 as my first season hunting out west. I listened to hundreds of hours of elk hunting information and Jim has been one of the easiest and most informative podcasts. He seems to really enjoy talking about elk (well hunting in general) and helping people become more successful by providing good information and helps by providing resources to better yourself. He’s been great listening to, and I highly recommend tuning into his podcasts, at minimum for the school of September series he is putting on. Thanks for the info Jim.

Great Podcaat

I just found this podcast and I love it. Right up there with my other couple favorites. Jim is down to earth and has great content. I enjoy how he relates to my imperfect hunting. Keep it up Jim.
