We covered a lot of topics on the new episode of Wildfire, which begins airing tonight on Time Warner cable station 9 and at www.vstv.me. Each show airs for two weeks on Time Warner on Tuesdays at 7 pm, Thursdays at 6:30 pm, and Sunday’s at 9:30 am.
My cohost James Cote and I enjoyed a vigorous conversation with Don Kleiner, executive director of the Maine Professional Guides Association. Don was once the very capable director of the Information and Education Division at the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. He spends a lot of time now representing the MPGA from the legislature to the Steering Committees working with DIF&W to create new big game and fisheries management plans. And oh yea, he’s a hunting and fishing guide too!
We talked about the many challenges facing Maine’s outdoor industry, concerns about the status of moose, the big game and fisheries plans, what happened at the legislature this session, and lots more.
The Sportsmen Say Survey question, asked of viewers at the end of the show and accessed here, is:
- Should Maine’s Fish and Wildlife Department do more to market hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities?
Hope you get a chance to watch the show and to answer the question.
