Hal comes down to Missoula to talk with BHA’s Ty Stubblefield (who hosts his own podcast, Shoot’n the Bull), about his roots in Oregon’s Umpqua Valley and his life there as a millhand, logging contractor, bowhunter and conservationist in the Coast Range. Now based in Florence, Montana, in the northern Bitterroot Valley, Ty is living the hard balance of family, work and a lifelong obsession with hunting in the farthest reaches of America's wildlands. He tells Hal the story of how he came to conservation as a volunteer with Oregon Bow Hunters in 2001 after a powerful personal experience while bowhunting. Since then Ty has become one of our most thoughtful spokesmen for wild places, ethical hunting, public lands and taking responsibility for feeding yourself and your family from the American lands. He and Hal talk about all of that and about what it’s like to be working dead center of the fantastic expansion of BHA across the U.S. and Canada.
