Welcome to The Professor’s Blog on Skinny Moose.  I hope you enjoy the site and content.

You can read more about my background under the ‘About’ tab.  However, the short version is that I have been conducting wildlife research for over 20 years.  I have worked for a state agency as a research scientist and a wildlife biologist.  For the last 9 years, I have been a Wildlife Professor and I have dedicated my career to mentoring the next generation of wildlife  biologists.

The goals of my blog are to help connect you to the science of  wildlife management.  I plan to bring you the latest scientific research in a  casual, fun, and informative format.  Helping people understand the science behind wildlife management, the principles that govern wildlife and their habitats, the ways citizens can use  research to enhance their land and hunting experience, and dispelling the myths that surround wildlife, while fostering an appreciation for the natural world  are my passions.

As you can see from my first post, I strongly believe in mentoring kids and taking them hunting and fishing.  I am certain that you will read more about youth mentoring in the future.

I encourage  you to ask me questions.  I will do my best to  answer your questions and post them on the main page and in the ‘Questions’ tab.
