What started by accident, has grown into two popular TV shows, Fresh Tracks and On Your Own Adventures, accompanied by the long-standing Hunt Talk web forum. Now added to those platforms is the Hunt Talk Podcast where you get Randy Newberg, unfiltered. Randy uses his platforms to advocate for hunters and public access. In addition to representing hunters in Congress and state legislatures, he serves as a volunteer and board member for many hunting and conservation groups.

Among the various developments examined by the study are the rise of popular environmental concern, the emergence of organized anti-hunting activism, the eruption of the modern Second Amendment controversy, and the continued debate over public lands in the American West.
