Episode 16: The Science and Politics of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act
From Christen Bouffard on September 29th, 2020
Do you want more ducks on the strap or dead in a tailing pond? Your vote this fall may affect the outcome for waterfowl. I talk with Dr. Michael Anderson, retired biologist from Ducks Unlimited Canada, about how policy decisions by the current administration affect waterfowl management and possibly even your hunting experiences. You may not subscribe to the science behind climate change or even some of the science of Covid-19, however, there is no denying that the science behind the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) is being compromised by politics. Before you vote this fall, be sure you understand how the all the policies of both candidates might affect your hunting.
