This weekend I will be traveling to conquer some public hunting grounds in Ohio. Does the thought of filming and hunting in freezing temperatures and sleeping in my car in a Wal-Mart parking lot make me feel discouraged about the trip? Yes it does. I would be lying if I told you I was not discouraged, BUT there is always hope. I am an optimistic person and I feel that any die-hard bowhunter has to look at the glass half full in order to succeed. Pessimism cannot lurk for very long because if it does that’s when you start to lose everything. Anyways, enough with my self-motivating speech. This week I have provided a few links that I would really like for you to take the time to click and absorb. I think anyone who truly loves hunting and cares about our wildlife will appreciate some of the conservation related material provided in the news-feeder this week. I hope everyone is getting pumped and prepped for the upcoming shed and turkey hunting seasons. I would really like to hear about some of your plans if you have any. You can leave a comment or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy this week’s News-Feeder!
Here is a great story about wild turkey relocations, which is a collaborative conservation effort by Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks, the National Wild Turkey Federation and Safari Club International. The full story is covered by Karl Puckett from the Great Falls Tribune.
