"The key word is science based wildlife management. And that's what we stand for. We trust the science. It's a science is no sheep bunny we're not going cheap on it. And we've seen that with the grizzly bear. And the government just came in, there was a change in government. It was an election promise and literally overnight. They just stopped it. And now we're seeing predation issues with grizzly bears and we have no management tool to use. We can't increase tag numbers. We can't do anything around it. Controversial motive, but again, we're not relying on science based wildlife management. So there's two campaigns that we've really focused on recently in ones are new kind of an advocacy program called one campfire. And one campfire is designed to educate the non hunting public about ScienceBase wildlife management. Some of the benefits of hunting and basically just have a general acceptance for hunting. It's not a recruitment. It's not the three R's that we've seen in the U.S., the great programs about the BHA does get people out in the back country. We're looking for acceptance saying that hunters have a place consumptive use has a place in the landscape and we're okay with that and not voting against it not having governments come in and shut down hunting and there's other initiatives that have been ongoing we're seeing a big push against the wolf call. We've seen that as well. And we're like, so we had a recent campaign called act now just saying tell the government to rely on the science. That's not managed wildlife on emotion. It doesn't work very well. The 7 tenets of the North American wildlife management model, one of them is based on science. We advocate for that. So one campfire is one of those initiatives that we're trying to communicate that message. And it sounds like what we need down here too. Yeah, it just sounds sensible, right? Yeah. To me, it does. Not even in recruiting hunters, but just educating people about hunting in general. And the things around it, I mean, it's actually better because it keeps more people out of the Woods for me. I enjoy it, but we don't want you, but we just want you to understand that. But I just want you to vote for us. I mean, we talked on the podcast earlier when you had me on about that she pun I did in a very touristy place in Colorado. You know, we ran into a lot of tourists, backpackers on the trail, asking us what we were doing. And when they saw bloody packs and a dead ram's head they obviously had lots of questions. And it was funny just like seeing them once they learned about why we were there and what we had to do to be there. And then even what we had to do after we got the thing back, it was like you just saw their eyes kind of switch from, you know, like, ah, I don't know. I don't know about you to like, oh, that's awesome. And then we actually had people like, congratulating us, asking us if they wanted us to they wanted them or if we wanted them to take our picture together. As a group, and then it was like this total change of like, wow, what is that? What are you guys doing? And then it was just like, oh, that's awesome. Congrats. This is so great. For you guys. What an adventure, all that stuff. And I think that that one campfire deal is just, to me, it sounds like something we should have in our own backyard, right? Definitely check it out. Yeah. Okay. Pretty much. It sounded like you had two things there. Well, I touched on the one campfire and then the second part was that act now. And Greg's leads our government engagement committee team. And that was one of the things that was just, I think we sent how many letters would you send to the government? 50,000. 50,000 letters were delivered to the government saying, hey, you know, we just want you to stick to the science. And because there is that push from certain entities that are saying, no, science, you should be basing it on public acceptance, social license, how people feel based on emotion and not. And we've heard with the Caribou. It's just like, you know, there's some anti hunting groups out there that are saying, let them die. They're stupid animals. They haven't adapted. Let science let science take care of it. And don't mess with it. But the problem is in our argument to that is we have messed with it. Humans are on the landscape. We've changed the landscape. These predators can kill these ungulates because there's logging roads everywhere. There's gas roads everywhere. We've taken the habitat away from wild sheep in some cases and lots of other species as well. And they have nowhere to go. So the predators are now outnumbered because it's easy for them. We've changed the rules. And if we don't manage, we are going to have to accept that we will lose Caribou. We will lose. And that's what we're afraid of is when do we have to wait till they're species at risk to take these extreme measures, or we could just be a little bit proactive and do the right things along the way that science supports, that's all we're advocating for. Well, that's like the point. I mean, I've always made a lot of argument is like, well, let's just let nature take its course. At this point, we can't. Unless my cyanide pill theory unless every human on earth takes a cyanide pill tonight, all at the same time. That's the only way we could wash our hands of it all. And level our cities and remove our fences. We are nature. Yeah, I mean, yeah, we're a part of it and we got to accept that in my personal opinion. And people don't realize that in that instance where they're talking about just let the Caribou die okay, then the wolves die too. It's a ridiculous argument and it definitely comes from people that just don't think about it often, right? I don't know about you guys, but I personally, I think about this a lot, but with hunting and conservation and being in the public, it's almost like we're a volleyball and the public's always hitting us back and forth and it's up to us to decide how we want to land on that person's volley, but I feel that you kind of have to be like bulletproof with your logic and morality too, right? I mean, I think morality is a big thing that can't be overlooked and you do have to take that emotion when people look at killing wolves and stuff like that. I mean, you got to understand that that person sees that thing as a dog. And I mean, I kind of do too. But there's this whole thing, but that's where I'm different from some of these people. And I'm sure you guys are too. I understand that that's part of nature, right? Like there's just absolutely, it's never going to be that there's not going to be killing and in nature and also now with kind of what we were just talking about. There's never going to be a point where we can't shepherd everything, right? We've got our hands way too deep into nature right now to be able to just, especially if it's just one thing. If you just let, okay, well, we're going to manage all this other stuff, but we're going to just let the wolves and grizzly bears do what they want to do. It's just way too late. In that aspect. But so I think alluding to your point on the fireside, it was fire sad, right? Fireside. One campfire. Yeah, I mean, I think that's probably the biggest hurdle that we have is just kind of explaining the logic and also as hunters are conservationists or whatever we want to be, being kind of bulletproof, bulletproof or at least having thoroughly thought through all the stuff that we're acting out in the real world. So it's tough right now because there's also so much information that you can grab from here and there, but yeah, I don't know where that rant was going, but quite often quite often we're our worst enemies too, you know, some of the things that we've done on social media over the years, some of the things that hunters tend to say, we haven't done ourselves any favors. And I think that we as a community need to start articulating things a little bit better. And smoke a pack a day or kill them all is not good terminology. And honestly, who really thinks that anyway, we don't want to see never see a wolf again. We just want to see a healthy balance on the landscape. That's really the message that we want to convey and I think it's really what we want. We love to see a few wolves. We see love to see healthy on Gillette's love to see Elk and moose and sheep on the landscape. But sometimes as hunters, we do ourselves a disservice. I think we're getting better at it, but we still got a ways to go. Yeah, I think. I agree. I think in the last decade, we've gotten so much better at it. And I think everyone's pretty much on board. Maybe there's a select few groups of hunters that aren't on board with all that. But I'm sure they'll get there. One of these days and you know. I love the one camp I already. I can't stop thinking about it. I mean, it's just such a good idea. And I don't know why I didn't think about it. Yeah. Well, it's probably the most important pillar of it. Because I would say it's probably more important than R three because it's just the biggest battle that we're facing right now is just the whole emotional status and being able to at least explain to people your morals and show people the food system that you're running. That's just it. Not everyone's going to be morally okay with taking a live event of an animal or anything. But at least if they can understand it and say, okay, I understand that the accept it. We don't need them to do it. We just need them to understand why and what and how and accept it. And not think that you're just ruthlessly killing sheep for no reason. Yeah, that's the big one. So are you guys, I know you said that you had not even gone on a sheep on or you're just a sheep watcher. Which is awesome. By the way, I didn't mean that to sound like we're out of shit on a shining foundation. I've never been on a T-shirt made that says that later. Keep watching. Keep watching. It's all in pretty good at right now. Checking them out, taking pictures of them. It's just as good, man. That's good to get good at because if you're down in the states, you only get one or two sheep once a year. So you got to get good at being a sheep watcher than you can enjoy it every year. It does bother some people when I tell them. I don't really target cheap. Well, you know where they all are. My secret. It's not my time at that. That time of the year, it's usually not my focus. Yeah. Kyle, have you been on a sheep on? And so my first one, I think, was in 2010. And that's why it really sucked me into this world. You know, I grew up in the prairies and there wasn't there wasn't any sheep, I think, nearby anyway, and I didn't know anyone that really did it. I've always been a hunter, loved to be on the landscape. I remember doing it when it was 6 months while I don't remember those days, but I was literally out in the truck with my father, grandfather at that age. But when I came to the mountains and moved to the mountain areas and started doing my sheep on thing in 2010 was it and luck have it. I managed to get a really nice sheep that year too, and that really sucked me. And so I think I've hunted sheep every year since then. And I've only harvested another one in my odds. They say the year you harvest your sheep, the year you start sheep hunting is the year your sheep was born, using you have to have to be 8, 9, ten. So it's usually 7, 8, 9, ten years before a guy. And my first couple of years, I got two sheep and I was like, oh, this is easy, but also too, you know, you recognize the resource and the value of it. You don't want to go out and kill one every year. If every sheep hunter killed a sheep every year that would not be good for so yeah, I've been pretty selective. I've had other opportunities and I've had the opportunity to be with friends that have got to harvest sheep and I've been on 5 or 6 different hunts where the good guys have been successful and to me that that's just as rewarding now. Totally. So what is it about because sheep hunters are fanatics and people that are here at cheap show? I mean, like Greg, you're sacrificing all this time to be a sheep watcher. But what is it about sheep and maybe Kyle we can start with you? What is it about that first sheep hunt that just made you go all in and dedicate your life to it? I've been hunting my whole life and I went on that cheap hunt and that's the first time I ever questioned why sanity. Really? Sheep hunting is hard. It just is. And even the easy sheep hunts are not easy. There really isn't. And that doesn't demean any other white to hunting. I love, you know, but the reality is is that sheep hunting is in terms of, if you were to look at it as challenging, it is the apex. Mountain goat arguably could be maybe a little bit harder or certainly in the same realm. So I think it's the challenge. And then the other part for a lot of people is being in that landscape. You've seen it leave you're out there. Well, you talked about yours was a more, it was a bit more urban, maybe the area that you were in, but a lot of the areas we hunt northern British Columbia are very remote. You'll go, you very rarely see anyone. And just to be in their backyard to be at the top of the mountain, sharing that with them, seeing them in their natural habitat, just to if I go on a sheep on, I see a sheep, I come away, I change person. It's just so it's a spiritual experience for sure. And being able to see them in their natural habitat, up close or even fire away, but maybe even about 200 yards. We were a hundred yards from a huge band of ram. I mean, lots of rams, 12 rams, maybe. And it was just so amazing to see in that close when typically you're only seeing them from the side of the road or maybe if you're in glenwood springs, you'll see them from the gondola going up to the caves or whatever, but yeah, you mentioned that one that one was crazy because we were 12 miles back, but there's still so many backpackers on the trail and I was like, what are you all doing back here? On Denali, the border Denali. Well, so that was an Alaska that was removed. We got dropped off. But then that one, the one Colorado recommend bighorn huh. We were 12 miles back. People were still walking by us. We were like, what are you doing back here? They were actually going farther and up and over and doing their just for Hot Springs. Yeah. Yeah, for a hot spring. Yeah, exactly. We don't have too many areas like that where the hikers are intermingling with the sheep hunters. Yeah, that's nice. Yeah, well, I mean, you guys don't even have trails, right? It gets all like if an outfitter cuts a trail, there's a trail there, but there's no government managed trail system back there, right? Correct. And the guide outfitters. They don't advertise where they are. They do have horse trails, but they're trying to be discreet about it. They don't want people traipsing through there either, right? So even if there are trails trying to find them is a challenge. So I think quite often sheep aren't on trails, right? There may be outfit or trail in, but then there's spurs or valleys that will be up as well. So yeah, sometimes literally there's been days where I've gone two miles in a day. Just battling up a ravine and trying to get through this thick stuff and just and then ironically, we found a trail and we did the rest of it in half a day, so it goes to show you do good, do a good reconnaissance when you're going in

"D Taylor. I'm Sean de weird. And I'm Justin. Let me find us on the Internet tech talk radio dot com. We'll be right back. Now, back to tech talk radio. So I took a train this last weekend. What kind of like a freight train or what? Yeah, no. Well, you know, I wasn't being a hobo. I actually took an Amtrak. So it has been a long time coming. I've wanted to do this. We were up hiking a few years ago up in the Rocky Mountains, and we saw this Amtrak train kind of snaking through the Rocky Mountains, and I thought, oh my God, that'd be so cool to do. So we started looking into it. And sure enough, you know, there's an Amtrak that leaves from Denver union station that goes all the way to, it's the California zephyr. So it comes from Chicago, goes through Chicago, Nebraska, goes through Denver, through the rockies, to glenwood springs, Grand Junction, Salt Lake City, Reno, and then to San Francisco. Now this is the one that has that big observation deck on top, too, doesn't it? It does. It does, yeah. It's so cool. And it's got some private rooms, roommates, for two people, and then rooms for four. But we decided to go coach class. All right. So yeah, so it was us and it was a group of Friends of ours. So we had two people in their child as well. And then another group of our friends that were just the two of them. And they were, well, they happen to be just going at the same time. They were actually going up to glenwood springs for their anniversary and were like, oh my God, we're going the same day. So we're like, well, let's just ride together, right? So we all kind of got the seats together. So the train left at Denver like 8 a.m.. We got the glenwood of springs. It was a little delayed, about an hour. So we got there around two 30 or so. But glenwood springs, Colorado is very famous for, well, actually two things. One of them being that the glenwood springs hot Hot Springs resort. So you got the natural Hot Springs from there and it's got a nice big resort with a pool and then the second thing they're famous for kind of more of a geeky thing is they're famous for a very famous YouTuber by Wendover, Sam Wendover does runs a Wendover Productions. If you ever haven't seen him on YouTube, I would highly recommend looking up Wendover Productions, but he lives in gremlin springs. Anyway, so yeah, we get up there. The train. Yeah, I never again. Really? No, nope. What was the issue? First off, it's dirty. So we get on the train. We get settled into our coach seats. We wipe it down like we normally do with like an aircraft, right? Wipe down the seat backs and the little tray tables and things like that. Take care of your area. Yeah. Yeah, take care of our area. We get that done. And the thing is as soon as you get seated, you need to run to the lounge car. That's that observation deck. Because there's only a certain amount of seats that you can get. And once they're full, I mean, they're full. So we got up there and we got a table. And we used those antibacterial wipes that you get, you know, for that were made famous and during COVID times, the lysol wipes, whatever. We would wipe the table with a lysol wipe. Pick it up and it was black. Oh. Then we would do another one. And it was black. And a third, and a fourth, and a 5th, and they were black. It was like taking off layers of dirt on these things. I mean, it was disgustingly dirty. And this is finally got to like 6 layers through and we're like, you know what? All right, enough is enough. We're just gonna sit here. I mean, yeah, I think what we're all good. We're not sick or nothing, but it just was dirty, and in the restrooms? Oh my God, don't even get me started on those. Yeah, they were dressed with, right? Yeah. I mean, it makes an airplane restroom look like a Ritz Carlton. Let's put it that way. It was pretty bad. But the trip itself was fun because we, you know, we would only go like 44, maybe 45 miles an hour through the Rocky Mountains, but it was cool to be able to see all the colors of the leaves changing and we're going through the Rocky Mountains. And so yeah, I mean, the experience was fine. The lounge cars where you could buy your drinks and stuff. So we, we all were on vacation and we, you know, being with friends, we were all drinking, having a good time, you know? Whatnot. But on the way back is where it got really interesting. So on the way back, so we left on a Friday. Right. To go up there, we came back on a Sunday. We were supposed to leave glenwood springs at 1205 p.m.. The train was delayed till one 15 p.m.. So we were already by that time too. It was the storm was hitting. We had a big storm roll through. So it was already snowing and cold. Oh, wow. And the train station's got nothing to do. And we're sitting here with a 5 year old and a 6 year old. They're losing their minds. So we had to go back into town, which I mean, again, is this across the street, really. But we went back into town to this little area where the kids could play, and we're standing right across from a brewery, and there you go. It's like 1130 in the morning. We're like, should we? We're like, yeah, why not? You know, we got nothing else to do. So we'd go into the brewery and of course they got kids games and things in the brewery like checkers and sorry and things like that. So we sat there and had some beers. We got on the train. We're going through and I'm in the lounge car. I'm chilling by myself. We're already about, you know, an hour into the ride. And my friend comes up to me, and he goes, hey man, do you carry? Uh oh. I'm like, what do you mean, what do you mean, Carrie? Yeah. Carry a weapon or why would you ask me that on an Amtrak train? He goes, well, your family's sleeping back there. Your wife and your kid are sleeping in it and the guy next to on the other side of the train aisle is waving around like this 12 inch blade. And he's just like, I mean, he's not

That's on our homepage. Okay, Brad, today's subject. We're going to talk about this accident. This incident that happened in Glenwood Springs on this ride at the amusement park. And we're going to talk about releases and waivers. And you know what's what's the biggest takeaway? Um uh, What's the what's the biggest takeaway on this situation? Because a lot of people believe they can't do anything about it. Uh, this stuff, right, you know, and, uh, that it worries me because we've done shows on this before and talked about where your rights are and where they are and what you have available to you in which you don't have available to you. And what you might be able to do in which might not be able to do and it, uh, we're repeating it to this week because I think that when people see it on the news, it's been on the news quite a bit, And they kind of get the idea. There's nothing they can do. Um, uh, about what's happening with with regard to their their cases and with regard to, um if they get hurt an amusement ride or if they get hurt in a in some type of amusement venture We have a lot of recreational ventures in Colorado, and we do have laws that state that they can publish these general liability waivers in the general liability waivers get signed, And as he gets signed, you get bound by him, and but that's not the end of the story. There's certain requirements that the general liability waivers have to include. They have to include certain language, for instance, that they don't have the word negligence in them. They're going to have a tough time saying, you wave specifically the word negligence. How they're written is going to be questioned because there's a lot of questions about Whether or not you you it's in what right kind of legalese that allows somebody know what's going on and understand what's being said, when they're presented and who signs them and how they in under what circumstances. In what the knowledge is of both the persons supplying the recreation and the person who is signing the waiver. So you know, in this particular case, I I'm not going to make a statement is to Weather and Glenwood Caverns. There's lawsuit available or or some kind of compensation available. Those parents who lost their child, It's a tragic event. Um, And the question is was. There's something this with respect Glenwood Caverns? Did they do something who was negligent and inappropriate? And if they did then It has to be addressed. And whether or not the liability waiver will hold up is another question. And I'm not so sure you just give up on it. Right. Exactly, And that's the issue. You know, That's the message. We did a show in this as well. Another show on amusement rides and releases on recreational type matters like one, you know, rafting. Snowmobiles skiing that sort of thing. So we went over the common lawn, which is the court made lives. You know, we inherited it from England. We've covered that many, many times on the show. There's also a statutory loss and you know the big picture in Colorado. That kicks kicks it off is this amusement park ride an incident that recently happened involving the death of a six year old girl? Uh, Brad said very tragic. In Colorado. The common law still applies. Uh so there's a couple of exceptions. Think about this. You have the General common long Then along comes the Legislature passes a statute specifically for the skin industry. Specifically for the scan industry. So if you're skiing and and there's an incident, so they say, Well, you have a release on your back of your ski ticket. That's that's one thing. And then there's a statute that covers and limits their liability. But that doesn't mean the end of the story. Also, then, along comes a Legislature when Colorado wanted to get major League baseball here 25 26 years ago. And they passed the statute because Major league Baseball wasn't gonna come. Let's get past the statute specifically exempting liability and protecting against liability for certain baseball. Batch flying in the air ball being hit balls being foul balls, etcetera, so That's the That's the general picture, but you get back to the amusement. Right? Bad. Uh, these? Yes, they say there's a release. Yes, they say there's a waiver sometimes you sign it. Sometimes you don't. Because it's just gonna ticket. Sometimes it's going to computer, they say, you know, you agree to the terms and conditions. So this is all based on contract lost the Bradleys cover that, you know, we have such things as adhesion contracts. We have such things as assumption of the risk of such thing as waiver, and you can't just automatically assume there's nothing you can do about this many times. There's something you can do legally about These so called Releases and so called waivers, but, yeah, there there are And you know, the first thing that has to be remembered as when we're dealing with this kind of stuff is, um, you know what's somebody's got to look at the circumstances under which things occurred. And the and I Do not think you can ever just go on or take a case and have somebody said they got here to hurt the amusement park. They got hurt in the recreational activity and just say, Well, you don't have a claim. The, uh you've got to see this specific waiver and you've got to see the circumstances under which it occurred. Uh, there is a lot of lot of, uh, of Belief and indications and there's cases out there that is stated that you've got to have the word negligence. If you're going to wait as somebody to wave your negligence. You've got to have the word negligence within the waiver. Um then you got to talk about circumstances under which the ticket was purchased. Under which the ticket got into the hands of this little girl or the parents for this little girl, you've got to talk about circumstances under which the whether or not they, uh there was gross negligence or something that exceeds just regular negligence and whether or not there was a waiver of those risks, whether or not there was an understanding of those risks and whether or not that information was provided. There's a lot of questions that come up. And in this case, I think there will be a lot of questions. Um, I'm sure they're going to get a hold of, uh, an attorney to take a look at it. And I hope the attorney does it looks into it. You've got to talk about whether or not The event was in existence or the existence of the vet was a duty to the public.

I most excited this year to get out with my students in the field to learn about the phenomenon that is our local grizzly creek fire and the glenwood canyon. Flash floods have occurred since then i love getting students involved in science at his happening right around them in their community and we will spend an entire semester learning more about that. I can't wait. My engineering students are diving into the math and engineering of pop up books. It's a really fun in unexpected way to start off the air and to give the students a chance to practice skills that engineers need. they're cutting out shapes and measuring and being precise and analyzing data finding patterns and trying to figure out how pop ups work some of my favorite quotes so far liquid.

Firefighters Battle Massive Fires In Colorado
"More than two thousand firefighters are battling four major blazes in Colorado. Michael Hayden is incident commander for a wildfire in the northern part of the state we're working with the other fires right now trying to share resources we said just about everything we have out and recalling from resources all over the nation. Colorado public radio reporter Michael Elizabeth Sacrifice joins us from the town of Eagle that's near a large fire in western. Colorado. Hi there. Hi there. Thanks for having me on. So tell me exactly where you are what you can see what's happening there. I'm not far from Dot Sarah which was one of the areas on pre evacuation notice which means folks need to be ready to leave at any moment the Grizzly creek fires burning in a canyon nearby about a mile east of glenwood springs and this Canyon is one of Colorado's natural treasures. One firefighter I spoke with described seeing it burn as heartbreaking. This fire has shut down interstate seventy, which is the main east-west highway into and through the mountain communities, and this shutdown is causing major issues for businesses and commuters, and because of this is the number one fire priority the nation to try and get it contained and the highway has been shut down for more than a week already. So the number one priority in the nation. But as we mentioned, there's three other big fires in Colorado right now, what's going on with those? Yeah more than one hundred and thirty thousand acres have burned in total and a few hundred people are evacuated some from their homes others from campsites and trails. There hasn't been any structure loss yet firefighters are working really hard to try and keep that from happening short the playing. The penguins fire north of Grand. Junction is now the fourth largest fire in Colorado's recorded history and these fires are hardly contained all at this point and it's really smoky close to these fires especially. But around the whole state, the State Health Department has issued an air quality alert for the front range and surrounding counties, which warns that at risk folks especially should stay inside let children older adults in those with heart or lung disease. Yeah. I was GONNA ask how the pandemic is affecting all this. How what do we know about how covid nineteen may be affecting? Either the people trying to flee the fires of the the firefighters trying to fight them. Right, the State Health Department warns that there is an overlap the people who are most impacted by wildfire smoke are the people who are most at risk for the worst symptoms of Corona virus. The state said the meeting of Kobe nineteen and the smoke is quote a real public health issue. Some research has shown that exposure to air pollution can worsen the outcomes of catching the virus, and while fire smoke can irritate weakened the lungs and immune system making someone more susceptible to infection the state suggestion to stay inside to avoid the smoke they say is now even more important because it can also help stop the spread of Code Nineteen as well. What do we know by the way about what has caused these Colorado I? Let's see Mr with me. Start Your back high. I was asking about the cause of the first. Yeah. Going there under an investigation, the largest fire was caused by lightning. And right now in the Grizzly Creek fire, the canyon fire was likely sparked by a chain dragging on the highway or maybe a cigarette out the window at originated in traffic. But what's really fueling these fires statewide drought and heat, and we haven't really seen those monsoon rains just yet. Right thank you so much for your reporting. Stay safe. Appreciate it thanks for having me on. That is reporter Michael Elizabeth sacrifice with Colorado public radio.
