event_description: Happy 2023! Welcome to our first Campfire Conversation of 2023 hosted by your Campfire Circle volunteer leaders Rachel and Nate.  If you missed the last issue of The Fireside have a look and you will be caught up on all that is new with the Campfire Circle.  We would like to invite you to join us for our next Campfire Conversation with our favorite sheep hunter and storytellerBill Hanlon  Thursday Feb 9th, 7pm MSTHosted by Rachel Schmidt & Nate Voris DO NOT MISS THIS CAMPFIRE CONVERSATION… While hunting Dall sheep in the spectacularly wild Tatshenshini/Alsek Wilderness Park in 1999, Bill Hanlon and his two hunting companions discovered the preserved remains of an ancient hunter emerging from the ice on the edge of a glacier. Now, 24 years later, Bill tells the story of this life-changing discovery and the three subsequent expeditions back to the discovery site of Kwäday Dän Tsìnchi or "Long Ago Person Found."  Bill will present this story with photos and updates! Bill is a wilderness hunter, backcountry horseman and wilderness advocate. He has been involved with various conservation organizations for 30 years in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. He was the first chair of the British Columbia chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers and co-founder of the Hornaday Wilderness Society. Bill was recently nominated for a second term as a Director on the North American Board for Backcountry Hunters & Anglers. Bill spends as much time as he can horse packing, backpacking and hunting – especially for wild sheep.  Campfire Conversations are an ongoing series of small, intimate virtual conversations, hosted by and for our BHA Campfire Circle Members, with featured guests who are some of our favorite folks in and around our public land, water, and wildlife.  Join in for a listen and ask any questions you like; get to know new people, learn something new about fellow public landowners you think you know, or have a conversation with an old friend. If you have friends and family, or, know other BHA members that would be interested in joining the conversation , please send them this email with a personal note and invite them to join us next week! If you missed Bill’s full interview and answers to Campfire Conversation Quickie Questions in the last issue of The Fireside… here is a highlight of what Bill had to say: Rachel: What are you most optimistic about when it comes to wild public land, water and wildlife?Bill: The federal government of Canada has a plan to protect 30% of the country’s wild spaces for nature by 2030. This 30X30 initiative has only been accepted by two provinces so far, Quebec and British Columbia. It will be through forward thinking groups like Backcountry Hunters & Anglers to help determine the best lands and waters to protect and that the right to hunt and fish are reflected in this initiative. The necessity of BHA being involved in this process reminds me of a worthy quote by John Madson. “Throughout almost all of human existence, huntable land and huntable wildlife has always preceded the hunter. But in the future this must be reversed. It is the hunter that must cause huntable land and wildlife, and a world worth being young in.” Join in the fun and pull your camp chair up to the fire! Hit the link below to RSVP and you will receive a Zoom link and a reminder in your email the day of the event. Save the date or register for our next Campfire Conversation, Campfire Adventures, and events:March 2nd  –  Campfire Conversation-  March 16-18th – North American Rendezvous 2023, Missoula MT Rendezvous 2023 - Backcountry Hunters and AnglersMarch 16th – Field to Table Dinner, Missoula MT 7th Annual Field to Table Dinner - Backcountry Hunters and AnglersAugust 14-18 - Campfire Adventure – South Fork of the Flathead River, MT, call Rachel or Nate for more information and to reserve your space. Look forward to seeing you all soon!

If you missed Bill’s full interview and answers to Campfire Conversation Quickie Questions in the last issue of The Fireside… here is a highlight of what Bill had to say:

 

Rachel: What are you most optimistic about when it comes to wild public land, water and wildlife?

Bill: The federal government of Canada has a plan to protect 30% of the country’s wild spaces for nature by 2030. This 30X30 initiative has only been accepted by two provinces so far, Quebec and British Columbia. It will be through forward thinking groups like Backcountry Hunters & Anglers to help determine the best lands and waters to protect and that the right to hunt and fish are reflected in this initiative.
