Podcast Ep. #41: Farmers, Hunters, and Gravel Roads

Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever have always worked to be collaborative with farmers to find the sweet spot for habitat as farmers try to make a living in harmony with the land.  Through this unique episode, Bob hosts a conversation with Zach Johnson, a guy known as MN Millennial Farmer on YouTube with 300,000 followers and the co-host of Minnesota Public Radio’s Field Work Podcast; Jan “The Embodiment” Payne, who is a farmer, longtime Pheasants Forever chapter volunteer and avid traveling bird hunter; and Tanner Bruse, Pheasants Forever’s Ag & Conservation Program Manager.  The wide-ranging conversation covers soil health, water quality, wildlife habitat, and hunting traditions on the family farm.  The group also provides guidance on how NOT to be a “citiot” when you go bird hunting this season.
