Canceling Conservation? | Fresh Tracks Weekly Ep 20
Fresh Tracks Weekly • 21m
This week we get the crew fishing update from the 4th of July weekend.
We learn about the funding of the Northern Plains Grassland Project and talk about where the money comes from. We look into the current status of wildfires throughout the United States this summer and ponder the potential consequences to wildlife.
For the deeper dive we discuss Andrew Clyde’s newly introduced "RETURN Act" to repeal the Pittman-Robertson Act. He and 53 co-sponsors somehow decided this is a good idea, despite being opposed by both the NSSF and the NRA. We also look into the history of the P.R. Act and talk about how a similar Backpack tax was proposed but quickly shut down by the outdoor industry.
