Episode 14 : Big Island Wild Sheep, Environmentalism, and Puuwaawaa HCP
Solo podcast on Big Island Wild Sheep and my reasons for what I do and efforts to protect them for future generations. We touch a bit on game management plans and politics. Also, a touch on the Puuwaawaa Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) and how it relates to sustained public sheep hunting within Puuwaawaa. This is my attempt to try to explain the politics hunters are facing in Hawaii using one really delayed project as an example. I hope you'll want to give it listen and learn up on what is going on and how much every hunter in Hawaii must organize to overcome the challenges to secure a future for these resources.

Episode 13 : Darrell Tanaka - Hawaii Noncommercial Fishing License
Episode 13 : Darrell Tanaka - Hawaii Noncommercial Fishing License : I saw some buzz on social media for several years about Hawaii adopting a non-commercial/recreational fishing license or permit system. I wanted to learn more about it so we talk with Darrell Tanaka about this. Darrell is on Maui and has been active in marine conservation and politics. We chat about a few marine topics and get into this scoping for a license system. Hawaii is probably the only State in the country that does not have some kind of noncommercial fishing permitting system. As Darrell says at the end, "...no resource, no fisherman..." As with all my topics, I invite any organization or governmental folk to talk of Hawaii resource issues. Public resources are something I am passionate about and feel so little real education and meaningful content is out there about it.

Episode 12 : All About Axis
Solo podcast on Axis Deer hunting opportunities in the State of Hawaii with an emphasis on do it yourself (DIY) type public hunts. Also a bit on tactics and strategies to consider when bowhunting Axis. At around 16:21 in the podcast I'd like to make a correction: meant to say, "...Hawaii doesn't have the same resource enforcement as the rest of the country..."

A huge mahalo to Representative Tupola and her staff for sparing local hunters some time out of their busy campaign. I also take the liberty to throw a bit of an intro with some current events and information I think are important for hunters to know. You can fast forward about 16 minutes to get right to the interview.

Episode 5 : "Pooya" John Motlagh DLNR Waianae Aerial Shooting
In this episode, I sit down with John "Pooya" Motlagh of Makaha, Oahu. He's been involved with the controversial aerial shooting of goats in West Oahu. There may be "contentious" statements made about the whole debacle and critical of the Department. To be clear, this is an issue that I feel Hawaii hunters should pay attention to. There may be no "easy" way to talk to these things but "it is what it is." We're going to talk about it and just see where it goes. That said, I'd love to speak to any Department or environmental representatives but I'm not going to continue to climb roadblocks.
