Episode 134: A Greenhorn Sheep Hunt

In this episode I’m joined by my long-time friend Nick. I met Nick in our first couple years of college, and back in 2006, we set off to hunt sheep. It was great re-living the memories of that hunt and hopefully you can learn some lessons from our mistakes.

In this episode, I get to sit down with the man who took the NPS to the Supreme Court and won. Twice. John is a passionate hunter and now advocate for Alaskans, our lifestyle, and use of our lands. He talks about his now famous lawsuit against the National Park Service that has greatly impacted access to many of our lands. John also currently sits as president of the Alaska chapter of SCI, and is raising awareness around the upcoming meetings to decide the fate of millions of acres of federal public lands in northwest Alaska.

Episode 130: Brooks Range Sheep and The WSA Wormhole

In this episode, I’m joined by Matt Herkstroeter to discuss the push for closures of sheep hunting opportunities in the Brooks Range. Some of these proposals follow suit with the attempted closures of federal land to non-local caribou hunters via the Federal Subsistence board through Wildlife Special Action Requests (WSA’s). We discuss the reality that sheep populations have been hit statewide the past two winters, what might be coming down the pipe, and the importance of staying objective in forming our opinions on the matter. The meeting we expect these proposals to be put forward is happening now, Feb 16 and 17, 2022, and the call-in info is listed in the episode photo here on tundratalkak.com. At the very least if you can call in to stay informed and give feedback if necessary, it will help.
