Here's a great clip from Shane Mahoney's speech at the 2017 RMEF National Convention. If you are not familiar with his work, I highly recommend researching it. Born and raised in Newfoundland, Shane is a biologist and writer widely known internationally as a lecturer on environmental and resource conservation issues. A committed hunter and fisherman, Shane lectures widely in the United States and Canada on the future of hunting and sport fishing and the role hunters and anglers have played in conserving our wildlife legacy. He frequently addresses resource management agencies and professionals concerning their roles as conservation leaders in the 21st century and conducts workshops on this theme throughout North America. Also check out his recent interview with Adam Janke on the Beyond The Kill.FM podcast . It's a great listen and well worth your time.
