Shane Mahoney is joined by public land advocate & TV host, Randy Newberg; outdoor writer Ron Spomer; Kimber VP of Sales, Ryan Busse and moderated by outdoor photographer, Tony Bynum to discuss the current state of public land sale and/or transfer happening between state and federal governments and what that means for conservation and wildlife. The panel took place at the Professional Outdoor Media Association Annual Business Meeting in Kalispell, Montana June 18, 2016.
This short piece was previously written for Sports Afield, "Conservation Corner" sponsored by Dallas Safari Club. Shane asks how can we convey a clearer message about hunting’s benefits to the nonhunting community.
Shane Mahoney speaks at the North American Wildlife Enforcement Officers Association annual meeting in Boise, Idaho, summer, 2013. Topics covered include: love for wildlife as a hunter, being a wildlife biologist or conservationist is not something to take lightly and is not 'easy' as some critics would suggest, what if the Endangered Species Act was enacted sooner - would that save some of the wildlife lost? And finally, why poachers kill Rhinos for their horns for the black market - it, too, is not a simple answer.
