233 - Curt McAllister talks Toyota and the Outdoor Initiative
Curt McAllister, the Midwest Public Relations Manager at Toyota Motor North America, recently discussed various aspects of Toyota's involvement in the outdoor industry. Covering 14 states in the South from Tennessee to the West Dakotas, Curt oversees the Outdoor Communications at the national level and is a key figure in the Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers. During the discussion, Curt highlighted Toyota's commitment to giving back to the outdoors, exemplified by their sponsorship of events like Bass Masters, Major League Fishing, and support for environmental projects. Toyota's involvement extends to funding initiatives like the Bison Project with the Sioux tribe and sponsoring National Public Lands Day for 25 years. As an Executive Board Member of Aglow, a scholarship program started nine years ago, Curt emphasized the importance of attracting younger members to keep the organization vibrant. The Toyota Let’s Go Places scholarships program, part of Aglow, covers travel, registration, and first-year membership, offering mentorship and job assistance. The conversation also delved into Toyota's vehicles, such as the Sequoia twin turbo V6 Hybrid and the upcoming Land Cruiser designed for off-road adventures. Curt addressed the issue of high pricing, attributing it to inflation and emphasizing Toyota's disapproval of price padding by dealers. In terms of initiatives, Toyota sponsors Bass Masters, has a fishing team as part of NASCAR, and actively contributes to environmental sustainment goals, focusing on pollinators and supporting habitats for butterflies, bees, and bats in 13 states. The Bison Project, managed by Native Americans, stands out as the largest of its kind. Throughout the discussion, Curt emphasized Toyota's commitment to a family environment and respect for the earth, aligning with their overarching goal of contributing positively to both the automotive and outdoor communities.

226 - Author Mike Arnold discusses his new book "Bringing Back the Lions International Hunters and Miraculous Rescue of the Doomed Ecosystem in Mozambique"
HuntFishTravel Podcast Ep226 - Author Mike Arnold discusses his new book "Bringing Back the Lions International Hunters and Miraculous Rescue of the Doomed Ecosystem in Mozambique" Mike is a Professor of Genetics and has written several books, the first 4 were more of the scientific nature, but the last book is a story driven by passion as a biologist, conservationist, mostly as a hunter and fueled by a non-hunter mentality.  It covers ecosystem restoration and human community improvement Mike shares a ton of facts about Mozambique and its 1 ½ million acres that have been restored with the help of the people and outsiders to a middle-class level. It is historically heaven on earth for big games hunters. In the 1950's hunters and then civil war through 92 shut down tourist/hunters along with travelers.  It’s a safe area now, especially the Southern portion.  Crime is safer than in Atlanta, Georgia. He shares how anti-poaching movement in the area helped and reminds us that Malaria shots are still needed as a visitor. He discusses how the next book will be more on a global viewing of hunting dollar helping hospitals, community development and the wild game protein feeds the people.    Mike’s book has received positive feedback and has encouraged him to write more books.  Even a member of PETA remarked, they did not realize how much funding went back into the ecosystem renewal via hunting.   Links: Website Facebook Buy the Book Here

221 - New Mexico Elk and Navigating the Draw Process with Jordan Christensen from The Draw
“New Mexico Elk and Navigating the Draw Process with Jordan Christensen from The Draw” Jordan Christensen from The Draw stops by for an EXTRA long episode. Normally I’d break this apart into 2 or 3 parts to keep the under 30-minute algorithm happy, but the information imparted was so intertwined there was no way I could break it apart. So go work out for an hour and a half, head up to ice camp and listen along because this information packed episode is epic. Jordan shares his rise in the outdoor industry, and his journey from outfitter to taxidermist to hunting consultant for Cabelas. We talk about permit draws and lotteries and how he helps other hunters navigate the process via The Draw. One of the states and species we highlighted in depth was Elk hunting in New Mexico, he explains the difference between a $750 DIY OTC draw tag vs the $10,000 available landowner tags. And which one is right for you. He talks about what Guided Pools even are and how it works. Then we chat about how We are the Draw service works and the costs you incur by using them. (which is surprisingly low.) We talk about drawing tags, cost of, odds and probably a ton of informational tidbits I’m forgetting about several states and species. And in the end I ask him, “I have no idea what I want to hunt or where, what do you recommend?” And his answer surprised me. The state and specie(s) suggested were extremely doable.

Questions such as: “I change the batteries, and now it’s not sending photos”, “do SD cards in a cellular trail camera get full, or do the transmitted images get deleted once they are sent”, “for the Flex, I requested the HD version, but there is a problem, and it’s unavailable”, “why are my trail camera photos crappy or blurry compared to all these photos other people post”, “should I just go buy rechargeable batteries since it seems like all I do is change them out”, “my cellphone has 5G in the spot my camera is, but the camera isn’t sending – what’s the deal”, “how often should I even be going into the woods to check/fix/battery the cameras”?

218 - Sue Tidwell - Cries of the Savanna and an eye opening adventure in Africa
HuntFishTravel Podcast 218 - Sue Tidwell - Cries of the Savanna and an eye-opening adventure in Africa On this episode, I'm interviewing Sue Tidwell, author of self-published Cries of the Savanna, whose goal as a non-hunter is to make people fall in love with Africa. The book covers her terrifying, amazing, wonderful and scary adventure at Masimba Camp in Tanzania as a non-hunter. (She is not apposed to hunting). Tanzania is a remote area where the people welcome the hunters who give them the meat. The people never waste anything. They lack protein in their diet so they welcome the money (which goes for anti poaching) and meat the hunters supply. She explains about how hunting protects the habitat. They do not have the tools to hunt with, so they poison animals or set traps. She tells a story of brothers watching their herd who are attacked and his 2 brothers are eaten in from of him. She also writes about Lilian a Tanzian game scout who verifies all of her information in the book to be correct. It was a fascinating conversation about hunting Africa as well as the struggles a self-published author faces when going forward with a project like this. Links: Website Faceboook Page Amazon
