Episode Notes

This week, Southern Ground is joined by National BHA (Backcountry Hunters & Anglers) board member, Jeff Jones. Jeff served as the Southeast chapter president for years before joining the national board just recently. BHA is a national organization that is committed to protecting our public lands. Jeff gives a brief rundown on what BHA is, and talks about some of the current projects they are working on. However, perhaps one of the big ticket items is the bill S.47, otherwise known as the “Natural Resources Management Act”. The conversation revolves around some of the sections of this bill that will directly affect our own public lands here in the south.

It is sometimes easy to forget that people are fighting on the front lines to protect our freedoms. Jeff and BHA is doing a great job to ensure that we have these wild places for generations to come. If you would like to be more involved, head on over to backcountryhunters.org to learn more!
