EP 615: Chris Powell Barking Up the Right Tree: From Ben Lily to Colorado Law
Welcome to another episode of The Rich Outdoors Podcast, where we bring you more than just hunting stories – we’re talking about the heritage and the future of hunting itself.
This week, we’ve got Chris Powell on the mic, a seasoned hound hunter with a wealth of stories and a passion for the pursuit. With recent proposals in Colorado to ban lion hunting under the guise of ending ‘trophy hunting,’ the implications for the hunting community are immense. We’re at a pivotal moment where the definition of hunting is under scrutiny, and it’s a discussion we need to bring to the forefront.
Chris isn’t just any houndsman; he’s spent a lifetime in the company of great dogs, understanding what it takes to nurture a top-notch hunting companion. But beyond tradition and the bond between hunter and hound, he explains how hound hunting plays a crucial role in the scientific management of predator species.
You’ll also hear tales of the legendary Ben Lily, a figure who epitomizes the ruggedness and resolve of historical hunting figures, roaming the Gila country of New Mexico without a horse, just his feet and his dogs.
Whether or not hound hunting is your cup of tea, this episode is critical for anyone who values the hunting heritage and wants to stand up for its rightful place in wildlife management. Tune in, get informed, and join the effort to protect our hunting rights in Colorado and beyond.”
