In this episode (175) of Leupold’s Hunt Talk Radio, Randy shares a mic with Montana FWP Director, Hank Worsech, to discuss dramatic changes to proposed elk seasons. From a list of talking points, the discussion gives the Director the opportunity to explain the rationale for these proposals and the vision he has for elk management in Montana. Topics covered include; science or social, elk plans, managing inaccessible elk, whose problem is it, too many elk or too little access, problem contributors or problem solvers, who are the Trustees, incentives, bull elk permits as currency for incentives, killing the wrong elk, trust between agencies and hunters, does public comment get considered, and lots of other topics in the complicated issue of managing elk on diverse landscapes. P.S. – Sorry for the audio issues caused by Randy’s broken mic (didn’t realize it until we started editing).
