Highlights

One of the hardest things to articulate as hunters is how we can pursue and kill animals for which we have complete admiration and respect. There are no words that can completely capture the psychological experience of the pursuit. Some spend years grappling with it all. Some, a lifetime. There are few things in this life that simply can’t be explained fully within the scope of our language. Hunting is one of them. It’s one of the reasons why our shared outdoor traditions are so sacred. Amidst all of the emotional chaos, however, is a fundamental truth.
•
We love wildlife.
•
Not only do we share a deep reverence for the animals we’ve set out after, but also for those we share the landscape with while exploring wild places. We recognize that we are all a part of a complex and astonishing ecosystem where all parts matter. The Recovering America’s Wildlife Act is a manifestation of that sentiment. This legislation would dedicate $1.4 billion annually to help state and tribal fish and wildlife management agencies proactively manage at-risk species.
•
Hunters and anglers, perhaps more so than any other user group, recognize that improving habitat for one species benefits all of them including wild game.

Today, we’re joining @coloradobha and public land owners across the nation in thanking Colorado Governor @jaredpolis for singing an Executive Order that enables @coparkswildlife to maximize every opportunity to protect wildlife corridors, allowing the free movement of animals throughout their natural habitats.
.
The Executive Order enables the state to increase understanding of the largest threats to wildlife and to prioritize wildlife corridor protection as human impacts continue to stress habitat and critical migration routes.
.
For much more information on how this Executive Order impacts Colorado wildlife management and to join us in thanking Governor Polis for his action on this important issue, click the link in our bio.

Congrats to #publiclandowner @josh_babb1 who put the proper scouting time in to find success on day one of his Utah hunt! As the first non-resident archery tag on record in the unit, we’re calling it one of our #publiclandownerfirsts!
.
As hunting seasons start to open up across the country, don’t forget to drop that tag on photos capturing new and rewarding experiences on public lands and waters.
.
Make this season the season you get outside your comfort zone and explore all your wild lands have to offer.

Throughout the summer we’ve been celebrating the unique ways our public lands and waters bind us together, no matter how different our backgrounds or our outdoor pursuits may be.
•
Though we won’t always agree on the issues that impact the management of our wild spaces, there is more that unites us than drives us apart.
•
We’re happy to have partnered with the @accessfund on delivering this message and on #findingcommonground.

In the high heat of summer few things beat wet wading and punching big ugly flies to smallies lying in wait.
.
You might want to think twice about slipping the bass you catch back into the water, and instead throw a few on the stringer for dinner.

Check out the latest #FieldToTable post at the link in our bio, where @chefrandyking shares his recipe for Smallmouth Bass with wild foraged greens.

Calling all American public land owners! The time for action is upon us. In wildland firefighting, a backburn is setting a fire to stop a fire … burning fuels ahead of a conflagration that must be stopped.
•
This episode of BHA’s Podcast & Blast, featuring Hunt Talk’s @randynewberghunter and BHA President and CEO @landtawney along with host Hal Herring, is our version of a backburn. We are setting a fire in our country, raising a public land owner’s flag and marching on Washington, D.C.
•
The administration’s appointment of William Perry Pendley, an outspoken proponent of selling off our American public lands, to head the Bureau of Land Management, which oversees 248 million acres of our lands and waters, poses an unprecedented threat to our outdoor traditions and shared resources. We cannot allow it to proceed unchallenged.
•
Listen to this episode to gain better understanding of what’s at stake and how Pendley can cultivate the disruption and dismantling of our largest public land management agency independent of congress.

Get engaged and use your voice!
