Good episode? Give it some love!
Today on the show I'm joined by Backcountry Hunters & Anglers CEO Land Tawney to discuss one of the most significant conservation and public land victories in decades - the Great American Outdoors Act - and what all this momentum means for the future of hunting, fishing, and public lands.
Topics discussed:
  • What is the Great American Outdoors Act
  • How significant is this?
  • The importance of the Land and Water Conservation Fund for hunters/anglers/outdoors people
  • The importance of funding public land maintenance
  • Is this a political gambit? And does it matter if it is?
  • How to make sure this becomes a reality
  • What's the MAPland Act?
  • What are hunters/anglers doing well that has led to this kind of conservation win? 
  • What do we need to do a better job of?
  • Are our public lands still suffering a "death by a thousand cuts?"
  • What do we need to turn our attention to next?
