This Week on HSCF’s “Hunting Matters” Radio and Podcast: Edward J. Hudson of Wild Strongholds

Welcome to the Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF) and Hunting Matters Edward J. Hudson has traveled the world since childhood and recently decided to combine his love of nature, hunting and international travel. During Ed’s childhood, Ed remembers stories of how there used to be more deer, more sheep, and more game. He got tired of these stories and became an avid wildlife conservationist because of stories from the past like these. Since 2017, Ed has hunted in the rainforest and savannah of Cameroon, the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan, the Hindu-Kush and Karakoram Mountains of Pakistan, the Altai and Hangai Mountains of Mongolia, the Zambezi Escarpment in Zimbabwe, the Austrian Alps and even the Danube. Valley of Hungary.

Ed’s passion for conservation prompted him to educate others in the creation of Wild Strongholds, a film production company designed to entertain and educate the public about conservation efforts around the world. Wild Strongholds offers a unique perspective on conservation efforts involving local communities, hunting companies, biologists, professional hunters, and governments around the world. Most hunters are misunderstood and poorly portrayed by a very loud, vocal, and small subset of the world’s population. People in this world tend to listen to the loudest voices and it’s hard to ignore someone yelling in your face. Ed’s mission is to influence public opinion and portray the beneficial impact hunting has on gamers around the world. He hopes that one day there will be more snow leopards, more brown bears, more lynxes, ibex, and sheep so that one day, when his daughter asks him, “Dad, is this how it used to be?” He may answer “No. it’s not. He’s much better now.
