About the film: “Randy Herlein never expected his life to change the way it did. He was an active upland hunter and outdoorsman that hit a bump in the road, but it didn’t stop him. In fact, he found a renewed longing to conquer each new challenge in the road ahead . Randy wasn’t about to let the cancer that took his leg keep him from a Get Busy Living state of mind. We hope Randy’s story inspires you.”
Share the Bucks to Birds campaign and featured video and podcast with your deer hunting friends.
Many grouse hunters understand that what’s good for grouse is good for deer. But how often do we highlight the symbiotic relationship between these two iconic wildlife species with our deer hunting friends? The Bucks To Birds campaign is here to help.
Thanks to our partners in conservation at The Dear Hunter Project, they’ve developed a new video to help us start the conversation. Last week they launched a conservation campaign which includes the featured video and associated podcast. We encourage you to check out both and share them with your deer hunting friends.[Read more…] about Introducing the Bucks to Birds Campaign
