On this week’s show we discuss a bucket list trip that was 2 years in the making. There were plenty of highs and lows on my quest to harvest a wolf. We also caught other species such as lynx, wolverine, martens and much more. We dive deep into the time honored tradition of trapping with longtime trapper Jack Hooper of Babine Lake, B.C.
Jack walks us through how to set various traps and snares for different species. Most importantly, we talk about the vital role trapping plays in ensuring the health of ungulate herds of moose, deer, elk, etc.
Pope & Young Club President Jim Willems on All Things Bowhunting and What Does The Hippy Backed Organzation Earth X Have to Do With Hunting?
We start by checking in with Pope and Young Club President Jim Willems. Topics discussed include: hunting with traditional archery equipment, elk hunting the west, the Crossman Airbow, how P&Y and Boone and Crockett came to a gentleman’s agreement on scoring process, USFWS’ continued mishandling of wildlife policy and much more! (Jim and I sat down to visit this at the recent Dallas Safari Club Convention)

Then we spend some time visiting with Patrick Foigel- PR Director for Earth X (Formerly Earth Day Texas). What does this tree hugging, seemingly hippy backed organization have to do with hunting? Well, surprisingly they understand that sustainable use hunting is indeed conservation. So this is a conversation well worth having, one that I hope drives the needle in the right direction as far as two sides starting to understand each other. Maybe not agreeing with the other, but at least understanding and respecting each other’s stance.
