In this episode, Randy invites two long-time grassroots hunting on the podcast to start giving ideas of where listeners can start with their own advocacy. They helped form and lead a very effective local rod and gun club, Headwaters Sportsmen's Association, which is probably similar to organizations in your state. Past podcasts tell of issues and problems facing hunters. Listeners have made it clear they want some sound starting points to become hunting leaders. Shannon and Vito have been doing this for two decades. They have been involved in politics, policy formation, and building grassroots interest. Not all solutions are the same, but their story and their commitment will give listeners some starting points. Lesson of the day- Policy will be formed by those who show up and those who engage in the debate. Let that be you.
