Today I had the chance to participate in a call-in show hosted by the Versus channel. David Morris of “ The bucks of Tecomate” and Tred Barta of “ The best and worse of Tred Barta” answered a multitude of questions covering all aspects of their lives and outdoor philosophies. My first impression is both men are down to earth hunters with a deep love of the animals they pursue and habitat  they hunt in. My questions were directed toward which conservation organizations they support and ways to increase hunter participation in the future.

Both men share similar views:
(1) We need to support every conservation group we can. In no group will you be able to agree on every viewpoint they support, but all are achieving great things to help ensure the future of hunting rights and opportunities.
(2) We need to get our families involved in our sport. We can no longer afford to try to keep hunting an exclusive “Boys Club”. Children and women are the future of our sport, and we need to do the utmost to involve our families in this sport we all love so much.

It was a fun and informative afternoon that will be available on podcast on our website hopefully as soon as next week.
