Dr. Sam Cunningham - Texas Bighorn Society
On this episode I am joined by Dr. Sam Cunningham, President of the Texas Bighorn Society (www.texasbighornsociety.org) at the 2023 Hunt Fish Podcast Summit held at the Warren Ranch. The history of the bighorn sheep in the Lone Star state has been a rocky one with the species being completely extirpated by the early 1960s. But with help from groups like TBS, state wildlife biologists from Texas and other states and other conservation groups like the Wild Sheep Foundation, the Bighorns are being reintroduced here in Texas and are making a great comeback! Although there are still a lot of hurdles left to overcome with disease, private land fencing, invasive species such as Audad and even human destruction of water guzzlers, the sheep are surviving and increasing in numbers. Sam and I had a great discussion on this and how you can get involved and help with their mission. Be sure to check them out online at their website and on social media. They have some great opportunities to get boots on the ground and improve habitat and more, along with numerous ways to contribute to the cause.

Steven Bardin and Kanyan Klein - Taking Fisheries Management to the Next Level

Steven Bardin and Kanyan Klein - Taking Fisheries Management to the Next Level
Steven Bardin, owner and operator of Texas Pro Lake Management, and Kanyan Klein, also of TPLM, were able to join us at the 2023 Hunt Fish Podcast Summit and we got to sit down and talk about some of the innovative ways they are able to manage private lakes and ponds for landowners in Texas and beyond. We also discussed the formation of the Black Bass Stewardship Group between Bardin and bass fishing legend Gary Klein, Kanyan's dad, and how this has all led to working with Major League Fishing and the creation of their Fisheries Management Division. With multiple research projects going on during the tournaments to collect valuable data on all the fish caught and the conservation projects that are done at a majority of their tournament trail lakes, they are doing some incredible work and in turn able to help the state DNRs that MLF visits. This is a great episode, and we really get into some great topics about issues facing the fishing and tournament industry.

Back with another episode from the Hunt Fish Podcast summit featuring Kat Hunter, 2022 graduate of the Women Hunt program who has just recently took up the sport of hunting and also jumped right into the world of conservation being involved with numerous groups including the Wild Sheep Foundation, Texas Bighorn Society and more. Kat's story is truly motivating and really makes you wonder why the outdoors market historically has been such a male dominated industry. With more and more stories like Kat's coming to the forefront, it's important for everyone to realize we all have something great to offer to others. Enthusiasm, different views and perspectives, different techniques and so much more. The Women Hunt program is doing such a great job in giving the opportunity to women across the country to get into the hunting world. Make sure to check out our episode with Renee Thornton, founder of the Women Hunt program from last year's summit and follow them on social to stay up to date on what they are doing and when you can apply to be a part of this great program!
