Howard Vincent retires after 35 years serving the conservation groups, starting as a volunteer before his rise to the top position in 2000. The two groups have become major conservation players, the dominant upland/bird hunting group, and conserving thousands of acres per year for habitat and wildlife.
Vincent recounts his rise and the group's accomplishments, how a savvy "big tent" philosophy has brought disparate groups to the negotiating table in the interest of wildlife and habitat. He'll outline how everything from honeybees to sorghum are relevant to hunters. He'll look back on some milestones, and ahead to what's in store for him after retiring at the close of Pheasant Fest 2023.
We go to New Mexico for wild bird public access, and hit on some of the 390 dog names you haven't used yet, but hope to.
