In this episode (182) of Leupold’s Hunt Talk Radio, Randy and Shane Mahoney discuss the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.  Shane is an expert on the Model, having shared many works with Dr. Valerius Geist, the person most credited with this Model’s current description.  In this first episode topics covered include what this Model represents, the history of wildlife in North America, the seven tents that comprise the foundation of this Model, why Dr. Geist defined how our Model works, what the Model is/isn’t, disruptive events that helped form our conservation ethic, and a host of other relevant history to explain the context of how the tenets of this Model were developed and the relevance of the Model today.
