Hunters and outdoor enthusiasts in North America and beyond often use the term “North American Model of Wildlife Conservation” without fully understanding its history.

Nosler Pro Staff and host of Fresh Tracks and Hunt Talk Radio, Randy Newberg, sits down with conservation legend and co-author of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, Shane Mahoney, to dive into the topic.

In this five-part series, Randy and Shane explore what the North American Model of Conservation is, how the term got started, the role science plays in wildlife policy, wildlife classifications internationally, the elimination of markets for game animals, legitimate purposes for killing wildlife, the allocation of wildlife by law, the Public Trust Doctrine, democracy in hunting, and the challenges of executing the NAMC.
