Ep. 119 Hunting Small Wildlife
In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, Dennis Biswell, an avid outdoorsman and lifelong hunter, joins us to discuss small-game hunting. He covers some of the benefits of hunting small wildlife, state regulations to consider, and how to safely and thoughtfully pursue squirrels, doves, rabbits, and more.
Dennis Biswell is an outdoor enthusiast and enjoys a variety of outdoor activities. He has hunted and fished all his life, and prefers hunting big game with a traditional muzzleloader or crossbow over modern firearms. Dennis processes all his wild game and uses as much of the animal as possible. He’s written articles on tanning hides, hunting, processing deer, and other outdoor skills in MOTHER EARTH NEWS and Grit magazine. He’s also given presentations at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIRS on processing deer, tanning hides, creating patterns, sewing home-tanned leather, and outdoor survival skills.
