Congressman Hastings of Washington Calls for ESA Reform on the Outdoor Patriot Show



Austin, TX—  With U.S. Fish & Wildlife’s recent ruling on three rare antelope species, the Outdoor Patriot Show welcomes Rep. Doc Hastings (R-WA) for a one-on-one interview about reforming the Endangered Species Act. This month’s show is now available online at, Apple iTunes, Facebook, Twitter and hundreds of  other online venues.

“This month’s rule by U.S. Fish & Wildlife has again put the spotlight on the Endangered Species Act, a piece of legislation that has not been reviewed for nearly three decades. Rep. Hastings is the Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee and his efforts could significantly benefit sportsmen across the country,” said John Meng, host of the Outdoor Patriot Show.

“The mission of U.S. Fish & Wildlife is to ‘conserve, protect and enhance our wildlife, but this month’s rule on these exotic species does none of that and it will ultimately impact many more animals,” adds Meng. “Rep. Hastings is dead-on with his call to reform the Endangered Species Act, but the ESA has become a cash cow for radical animal activists and returning the ESA to being a responsible wildlife management tool will be an uphill battle.”

One of America’s newest and freshest voices speaking out for our outdoor way of life, Meng is an award-winning writer and editor, who has contributed to multiple outdoor television shows and published more than a hundred articles specific to the hunting and deer industries. He is president of the American Deer & Wildlife Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to growing the outdoor industry and preserving our outdoor traditions through youth education and public awareness.

The Outdoor Patriot Show is available at,,,, Apple iTunes and through more than 100 other podcast directories.
