Bears for America; The ABF

Show Notes

Joe Kondelis, president of the American Bear Foundation (ABF) joins the Houndsman XP Podcast host, Chris Powell, to discuss black bears, bear management, bear hunting and what the ABF is working on all across the United States.

Joe lives in Cody, WY and has led the organization from a regional organization, formerly known as the Western Bear Foundation, to a national organization that is creating grass roots chapters in many states. The ABF is an all encompassing conservation group that represents all bear hunters regardless of region or method of hunting. The ABF is more than a pro hunting group. Hunting is a valuable tool in wildlife management however, the ABF works on many fronts of wildlife management. These efforts include overall bear health, human/bear conflict mitigation, grizzly conflict mitigation in the lower 48 and much more.
