Ep. 58 - Austin Booth, Director of AGFC - The Future of Conservation in Arkansas
We sat down with Austin Booth, the director of AGFC, to talk about the future of conservation and his vision for "common man and common woman conservation". Former Marine, turned leader of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Austin is as level-headed and well spoken and as a wild hog is ornery, and he is impressively available to the public to hear how he and the agency could be doing a better job. Heck this man already has our vote for governor if he ever decides to run one day.
We talked about:-the biggest issues our region of the world is facing today-the exciting new proposal for a "conservation tax credit" where the state of Arkansas will pay you up to $10,000 to practice prescribed burns, feral hog trapping, timber stand improvement, flooding wetlands and more-how millions of bird species are disappearing from North America while one species in particular is increasing and why -what AGFC thinks about the mountain biking scene growing in popularity in the Ozarks-what "common man and common woman conservation" means in today's day and age
