These two 60 minute (with commercials) radio interviews with Jim Slinksy were first broadcast nationally on October 24, and on December 5, 2009. They have been available since that time on the Jim Slinsky's Outdoor Talk Network website (OTN) at: http://www.outdoortalknetwork.com/.
The basic topics of the interview were precontact American Indian land management practices in North America and in the Pacific Northwest and their relationship to historical wildlife habitat patterns and to modern catastrophic wildfire events in the western United States. Discussion includes current academic and scientific misunderstandings of those histories, and their significance regarding current resource management restrictions and opportunities: "using traditional methods to achieve modern objectives."
According to the OTN website: "Jim Slinsky is a sportsman, conservationist and defender of our right to hunt, fish, trap, and shoot.
