Paul Forward, Tom Lohuis and Roman Dial join us from Alaska to talk Dall Sheep hunting and ecology, the warm up in the north and its effects on the landscape and fish and wildlife, and the future of hunting, fishing, and wildlife in Alaska. Paul is a doctor who spends part of his time in the most northern stretches of Alaska treating rural and indigenous communities and a hunter with an obsession for Dall Sheep. He also spends his winters as a heli-ski guide and has seen interesting changes in snowpack. Tom is a lifelong hunter from Wyoming works currently works as a sheep research biologist for Alaska Fish and Game. He has also done research on moose, black bears, and several others species. Roman is a professor of mathematics and biology at Alaska Pacific University and an author who has spent more than forty years crisscrossing the Alaskan backcountry doing research, exploring, and finding material for his two books.
