Hunting, Fishing, and Climate Change

Trout angling in the Black Hills of South Dakota
I've been saying it to my students for years: more than just about any other group of non-scientists, hunters and fishers know the land we live on.  This means that they also are the ones who most notice changes, just as you notice when something in your home is moved to a new place.

This article in Outside makes just this case, with the additional point that we who seek our food in the wild are the people who ought to be advocating for real conservation: not just changes to game laws, but changes in the way we live in relationship to our world.
