“Be more like Missouri—and less like New Jersey— with respect to wildlife management,” argues Gabriella Hoffman, host of District of Conservation Podcast, on Episode 127 of the podcast.

In today’s installment, Gabriella discusses three positive developments on the hunting front that may have slipped under your radar. Good news: COVID-19 has given new life to hunting. And it isn’t going extinct anytime soon. Here’s why:

First, Missouri’s Department of Conservation approved a highly-regulated black bear beginning October 2021—despite misinformation from the Humane Society. Second, WSJ and Pew Trusts positively covered the surge of hunting in USA in wake of COVID. And third, why you should subscribe to Blood Origins’ new podcast.
