EP 47: 'Tis Hunting Season, On William Perry Pendley, 1.4 M More Acres for Fishing & Hunting Opportunities Open on USFWS Lands

In Episode 47 of District of Conservation, we've got much to celebrate! First, it's our one year anniversary of launching, so this show will be a special one to mark the start of Season II of the podcast. 

Gabriella discussed the start of the 2019-2020 hunting season and why it's important to get more adult onset hunters into the field. She also discussed William Perry Pendley, the new BLM Deputy Policy and Programs Director, and his op-ed at the Denver Post hitting back at critics about his positions on public lands and news from Department of Interior opening up 1.4m more acres of public land—specifically on 77 national wildlife refuges and 15 national fish hatcheries —to hunting and fishing opportunities.
