Episode Info:

In this fifth episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast I sit down with Howard Vincent who is the President and CEO of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. The hunting conservation organization he leads is a pioneer in conserving and restoring habitat that benefits upland game. Their work not only supports a healthy environment for pheasants and quail, but many other wild critters, and clean water. Howard grew up in Duluth, MN which is one of my favorite places. He shares what it was like growing up in the north woods with parents who let him roam free, and how he got his kids started off hunting (and doing other things in the woods) at a young age. Listen in on this engaging conversation with a true conservation leader.   Reference Links from Today's Podcast Watch Awaken The Hunter Within here - This seven-part film is a documentary on Becca, Pierce and Alex who all decide to learn how to hunt. Follow them on their journey into the world of hunting. Why Listen to The Modern Carnivore Podcast? With all the podcasts out there why would you want to listen to this one?

Here's a transcript of today's Episode - Howard Vincent - CEO of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever Intro:        00:00:09 Welcome to the Modern Carnivore Podcast. A guide for those interested in hearing more about hunting, fishing, and other paths to eating more responsibly. Now, here's your host, Mark Norquist. Hello and welcome to this episode number five of the Modern Carnivore Podcast. Mark:               00:00:27 Today I'm joined by Howard Vincent. He is the president and CEO of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. And if you're not familiar with them, they are a conservation organization that in my mind represents a really classic example of the good that the hunting community does to promote a healthy ecosystem. Their tagline is "The Habitat Organization" and that is where they put all of their energy is in improving and protecting and conserving the habitat that these birds, pheasants and quail, but also a whole host of other types of wildlife thrive in. They've got 150 wildlife biologists that work with them across the country and they've got nearly 150,000 members that are in, I think over 700 chapters across the country. So if you're curious about them, you can probably find a chapter somewhere near you. And if you look at the results of what they've done, they've had impact on more than I believe, 16 million acres across the country. Mark:               00:01:37 Uh, and those are, those are lands that have benefited from the work that they have done to really promote healthy habitat for, for wild animals and, and clean water. The thing that I'm really passionate about with them though is getting more people out into wild places to hunt and into other outdoor activities. And I'm really excited because we're going to be partnering together on some Special Projects here in 2019 and we'll talk more about that later. But, um,
