Great Podcast

This podcast gives awesome information on the wildlife of Utah and really helps with understanding the huge amount of effort that goes into preserving and protecting our wildlife, as well as making recreational opportunities available. It also helps to show who the DWR are, and how they help preserve these opportunities for us and future generations. Great podcast for anyone who wants an in-depth exploration of what goes in behind the scenes in Utahs wild places.

Just found this podcast and I love it! I agree with the review that asked for a native cutthroat trout episode. Would also love some episodes about non-game wildlife: birding, native reptiles and amphibians, small mammals, bats, wild horses, even insects. Then some species specific episodes—from cougars to jack rabbits and rattlesnakes to sage grouse and everything in between. Keep the great content coming! Thanks.
