Episode Notes

This is the first of six podcasts from our "Montana Tour." We just got back from a DIY spring mule-based bear hunt and recorded podcasts with some incredible conservationists/hunters along the expedition. Justin Spring is the Director of Big Game Records for the Boone and Crockett Club and you'll learn some incredible information and hear some incredible stories, including when Justin's wife Rebecca punched a bear in the face! Topics of this podcast include: fair chase, why we target older mature males, why net scores, understanding the scoring system, bilateral symmetry, seven pillars of wildlife conservation, scientific-based conservation versus emotional based, and the Spring's caribou and bear story.
