Wildfire tackles the tough moose questions with guide Guy Randlett

2015 hunt Scott IrelandConcerned about the decline in Maine’s moose population? Wondering if moose hunting will survive? Or if we’ll be able to easily see moose again anytime soon?

On the new edition of Wildfire, my cohost James Cote and I explore these and other questions and issues involving moose, with our guest Guy Randlett. Guy actually won a moose hunting permit the first year DIF&W began issuing them in the early 1980s. Later, he became a moose hunting guide, specializing in hunts for trophy bulls.

Each edition of Wildlife is aired on Time Warner cable station 9 on Tuesdays at 7 pm, Thursdays at 6:30 pm, and Sundays at 9:30 am. Each edition will air for two weeks, so you have no excuse for missing it! You can also access the show online anytime at www.vstv.me.

And please answer the question about moose, posed on Wildfire and posted in the Sportsmen Say Survey section of my website. You can access the survey here. Thanks!
