This week on the Montana Outdoor Podcast Host Downrigger Dale talks with Sarah Tilt, Executive Director of One Montana. One Montana is the nonprofit organization that created probably one of the most unique hunter education courses in the world. When you listen to this podcast you will see what we meant by that last statement in just the first few minutes of listening. Downrigger has talked a lot on about hunting access on the Montana Outdoor Podcast, but he has never really found a guest that has cracked the code that unlocks the ultimate secret to better and ongoing hunter and landowner relations, that is, until now. That is why this may be one of the most important podcasts for the hunter who truly desires to become a better hunter AND who wants to give back to the incredible sport of hunting and all those who do their part every day to provide access to the game they love to hunt.
There is a TON of great “take aways” in this podcast but one of the most important is how you can apply to get into the Master Hunter Program, so listen carefully for that as there is a deadline approaching to apply. You will also hear Rigger’s guest, Sarah Tilt explain how the Master Hunter Program was launched to help the State of Montana and private landowners improve wildlife management efforts by restoring the cooperation between hunters, private landowners, and game managers. The program provides advanced hunter education that hones the participant’s overall aptitude and includes training in conservation and stewardship, natural history, ethics, and specialized ballistics and marksmanship skills, among other topics.
