EP 10 - Test & Remove
The loss of any wild sheep to predation or disease is heartfelt. It's even harder when an animal tests positive for the pathogen M.ovi and has to be euthanized. But the results of more lambs surviving to adulthood and progressively fewer sheep testing positive has proven its worth. Today, it is our best tool in the toolbox.
EP9 - Trophies & Trophy Hunting Part 2
EP8 - Trophies & Trophy Hunting Part 1
In this episode we visit with our community's sage advisor, Shane Mahoney, CEO of Conservation Visions. Like the word conservation, trophy hunting has been highjacked by those trying to advance an anti-hunting agenda. This time as a bumper sticker campaign to launch into a more personal effort, the anti-hunter.
Is the negative stereotype surrounding the notion of trophy hunting something we should be concerned about? Should we have adjectives that describe different types of hunting, or is hunting just hunting? Better yet, is trophy hunting conservation?
EP7 - Asian Sheep Hunting - Robert Logan
EP 6 - A New Look at an Old Problem
We've learned most of what we know about diseases and die-offs in wild sheep and what can be done from this think tank and research facility, which WSF and others have been supporting for years.
While we've gotten pretty good at putting wild sheep on the Mountain, keeping them there has been a struggle in some areas. Dr. Huyvaert gives us insights on new research and emerging technologies she and her team are working on, including a more reliable animal-side test for diseases.
EP 5 - The Original Hunt Adviser - Jack Atcheson, Jr.
Jack Jr. has followed in his father's footsteps as a booking agent out of Butte, Montana. Between them, they have put more people on their first and last sheep hunts than anyone. This is insider information we're all lucky to have.
EP 4 - Wild Sheep Conservation Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow
If you want to know where you're going, check where you've been. In this episode of Sheep Fever, you'll hear from the past two Chairs of the Wild Sheep Foundation, Brett Jefferson and Dr. Peregrine Wolff. They both share a look behind the scenes of WSF over the past four years.
In their tenure at the helm, both have seen tremendous growth in the organization but more importantly significant progress in Putting and Keeping Wild Sheep on the Mountain. Still, challenges and threats remain to be overcome, reminding us that wild sheep conservation is a continuum.
