Howdy Roamers and thanks for checking out this 2-for-1 episode of the Right To Roam podcast! The Wyoming legislature is in session and that can only mean it’s time for another set of conversations to take place at the Sportsmens’ Legislative Reception. If you missed the conversations from 2018, check out episodes 26, 27 and 28. For the new year there are some familiar voices as well as some first-time guests of the show.
For this first installment, Adam and Lee are joined by longtime friend of the podcast, Jess Johnson. Jess is also the brains and most of the brawn behind the event. Chris Peterson, a Wyoming Wildlife Federation Ambassador, joins in the discussion and makes his first appearance on the podcast as does WWF Ambassador, Jaden Bales. This quick recap covers, albeit briefly, the gist of the legislative session and day’s events as well as highlighting the importance of what it means to be involved in the law making process through proactive influential means.
The second half of this episode finds Sam and Adam in discussion with Bob Budd of the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust, now Governor Mark Gordon, and President of the Senate Drew Perkins. Conservation politics and public lands access are the topics of consideration with each of the guests weighing in. We’re really looking forward to future, more in depth conversations with each of these Wyoming sportsmen.
