When I was working in the capital, it was heartbreaking to see how agriculture, conservation and environmental issues worked against each other. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, you have opportunities to make an impact for conservation. Don't just be a consumer. Make sure you're giving back. — Brandon Butler We have a problem on our hands, in that the volume of hunters is shrinking overall. We pay for conservation through hunting, fishing and firearms dollars. And we have movements attempting to counteract these participant declines with messages about how hunting is conservation. But if a person doesn’t advocate for conservation, can they be a conservationist? How about if they’re not even aware their act of hunting is contributing to conservation? Few people I’ve ever met understand the ins and outs of what it means to be a conservationist and to wrestle with these questions better than today’s guest. I know this from his content I’ve consumed, being his newspaper column, interviews, our previous chats to this show and the show itself.  Brandon Butler is one of the sharpest conservation communicators you will meet, and I admire him because while this guy understands the ugly side of the state of things, he doesn’t let that take away from his own enjoyment of the outdoors. I think that says something special about his character, given the state of affairs.  Driftwood Outdoors Website Roeslein Website POMA Website
