Joining us on the show is Jordan Nanney, a wildlife forester for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Jordan is a trained wildlife biologist, forester, fisherman, and hunter who has worked hard to develop his career in the wildlife field. During the interview we discuss his early years as a hunter and how he was inspired to purse a career in wildlife management. We also discuss the results from his research on the effects of timber harvest, fire, and herbicide on elk and deer forage on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, as well as bobwhite quail management strategies Jordan has adopted.
