The Privatization of Elk Hunting Part 2 - NW Wildlife Federation

The Privatization of Elk Hunting Part 2 - NW Wildlife Federation

Today we are recording with Jesse Deubel, the executive director for New Mexico Wildlife Federation and Ray Trejo. Both guests are passionate elk hunters who reside in New Mexico, we are extending the conversation of how New Mexico continues to support the privatization of elk hunting. If you are a regular blue-collar elk hunter, resident or non-resident, this is an important podcast to educate yourself on how the North American Model of Conservation is being ignored by the state of New Mexico.

Demand that the NM Attorney General investigate the legality of the EPLUS system

For more background and to research the extent of NMWF's calls to action through the administrative process, listeners can read more about the issue at the following link. The New Mexico Wildlife Federation has spent decades exhausting any and all administrative remedies.

I have a New Mexico based hunting podcast called Nada Grande Outdoors. We have been fighting the wildlife federation and BHA on this issue for several years. The picture they are painting of the eplus system is pure bullshit. They will ruin hunting as we know it in NM and have already cost public hunters plenty of draw tags in the past with their agenda. They are purely politically driven with no regard for the future of hunting as they claim.


hey bro I just wanted to reach out you about the audio on your podcast, I’ve been listening to your podcast for a year now to and from work and it seems like within the last month or so the audio is really low so I’m having to turn up my volume all the way up on my truck radio and then when the GPS comes on it literally scares the hell out of me because it’s so loud. That’s why I’m reaching out. Love the podcast and being from Texas it has taught me a lot about elk hunting in general and you actually turned me on to buying Pnuma products.
Keep up the great work bro.
