Episode 1 – Funding Conservation –
Wed, 7/3 at 6:30 pm, Friday 7/5 at 12:30 pm, Saturday 7/6 at 9:30 am
Who foots the bill for wildlife management in North America? By-and-large, hunters and anglers do, through taxes on equipment, purchase of tags and licenses, and donations and memberships in conservation organizations – a funding model that has worked brilliantly for the past 100 years. But, with increasing demands, is this money enough to sustain our wildlife into the future? Just as importantly, why does our story remain untold?

Episode 2 – Oregon Elk & Healthy Forests
Wed 7/10 at 6:30 pm, Friday 7/12 at 12:30 pm, Saturday 7/13 at 9:30 am

Though logging has come under much scrutiny in past decades, the habitat created by timber harvest is a benefit to several big game species. One such species that has flourished alongside responsible logging practices is the Roosevelt’s elk. We join one hunter revisiting his old stomping grounds on a quest for this challenging quarry, and explore the relationship between timber harvest and forest health. Are our public forests in healthy condition, and if not, why not is worth knowing.

Episode 3 – Who Manages Our Wildlife
Wed 7/17 at 6:30 pm, Friday 7/19 at 12:30 pm, Saturday 7/20 at 9:30 am

Wildlife management is a delicate balance of science, politics, and PR. Who are the people charged with managing our wildlife, how and why this system was established and by whom, is one good news story that should never be taken for granted. It is why we have the abundance of game today and the opportunity to hunt.

Episode 4 – British Columbia Whitetail & Sportsmen Biologists
Wed 7/24 at 6:30 pm, Friday 7/26 at 12:30 pm, Saturday 7/27 at 9:30 am

Sportsmen have long played the part in providing information from the field to wildlife managers. Today, DNA analysis provides a wealth of new information for biologists, and sportsmen are providing the samples. Host Shane Mahoney travels to BC on a hunt for whitetail with one of the visionaries of DNA collection. We will learn how this new tool is being used to benefit everything from big game record keeping to the science of modern-day wildlife management.

Episode 5 – Wildlife Health & Wildlife Diseases
Wed 7/31 at 6:30 pm, Friday 8/2 at 12:30 pm, Saturday 8/3 at 9:30 am
Diseases such as CWD, EHD/blue tongue, brucellosis and others are an ever-increasing problem and threaten the health of our wildlife, livestock, and the public. What these diseases are, how they are transmitted, and what’s being done to control these diseases and secure the future health of our precious wildlife resources and the people is something every sportsman should know.

Episode 6 – Montana Mule Deer & Public Access
Wed 8/7 at 6:30 pm, Friday 8/9 at 12:30 pm, Saturday 8/10 at 9:30 am

More and more, private lands are becoming sanctuaries for wildlife. While the food and safety serve to benefit big game herds, sportsmen’s access to these lands and the wildlife living there is becoming increasingly difficult, causing dissention and pitting sportsmen, landowners, outfitters, and state agencies in a wrestling match over what is to be a public resources. The Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch in Montana serves as a shining example of compromise, and we follow two father and son teams on a hunt for mule deer there where private land means public access.

Episode 7 – Colorado Whitetail & The Farm Bill
Wed 8/14 at 6:30 pm, Friday 8/16 at 12:30 pm, Saturday 8/17 at 9:30 am
We join hunter George Cook as he heads to eastern Colorado on a hunt for the caliber of whitetail buck this region is becoming known to for. Along the way we will learn the past, present, and future of the Farm Bill – the single most important piece of conservation legislation that has been most beneficial to a plethora of wildlife species, including our opportunistic whitetail.
