Public land and conservation superstar

By cj wenner - May 31 2020

Listening to Randy’s podcast has not only improved my capacity as a hunter, it has pushed me to me more aware of critical issues regarding our shared lands and preservation of access. For example, a podcast this winter featured Teddy Roosevelt IV ( yes- that Teddy Roosevelt), who, like Randy is a public lands advocate. During his interview he discussed an organization he is affiliated with: ‘Represent US’, which works toward restoring a true democracy within our nation. As a result I have become involved with Represent US and feel that I now have a vehicle to do my part. This is just one example of the thoughtful guests that Randy interviews. I have encouraged non-hunters to listen as well, as his advocacy is inspirational and truly exemplary. Thanks, Randy! Chris Wenner (Cold spring, MN)

Listening to Randy’s podcast has not only improved my capacity as a hunter, it has pushed me to me more aware of critical issues regarding our shared lands and preservation of access. For example, a podcast this winter featured Teddy Roosevelt IV ( yes- that Teddy Roosevelt), who, like Randy is a public lands advocate. During his interview he discussed an organization he is affiliated with: ‘Represent US’, which works toward restoring a true democracy within our nation. As a result I have become involved with Represent US and feel that I now have a vehicle to do my part. This is just one example of the thoughtful guests that Randy interviews. I have encouraged non-hunters to listen as well, as his advocacy is inspirational and truly exemplary. Thanks, Randy! Chris Wenner (Cold spring, MN)
