Wolves are Wolves | Fresh Tracks Weekly (Ep. 22)
Fresh Tracks Weekly • 8m 14s
It's a busy week for the crew, finishing up edits from last season while prepping for the next hunting season.
Wolves being the charismatic megafauna that they are often pop up in national news feeds along with many hunting related news feeds. The reason they gain so much attention is often for very different reasons depending on the audience.
A recent article in Frontiers in Conservation Science reviewed numerous scientific articles and found many of the extreme stories that are told in regards to wolves are drastically over stated.
The Federal Subsistence Board also voted this week to close two Dall sheep units in Alaska to hunters for the next two years. It makes one ponder what the future will look like with Federal management of game species.
The publication, The Wildlife Professional, highlighted articles focusing on how they can use RADical wildlife management practices to deal with the changing climate and habitats.
We are skipping the deeper dive this week. But you can catch Randy at the Total Archery Challenge in Big Sky, slinging Dilly Bars!
