How did Shane get so involved in the outdoors? Is hunting conservation and what does that mean? Shane Mahoney talked with Billy Kinder of Billy Kinder Outdoors Radio at the Professional Outdoor Media Association Conference this past summer. Special thanks to Billy for allowing Conservation Visions to re-air this interview.

Listen for these and more thoughts by Shane Mahoney. Original article posted in "Sports Afield" July 2012.
