Last October I captured six mountain lions with my cameras within a 1.5 mile segment of the trail at this ranch. I realized that my good fortune was really tied into the conservation effort on the part of this family for 72 years. Dealing with floods and economic downturns over decades takes an incredible amount of fortitude. We all benefit from landowners who deeply care about the land, watersheds, and wildlife. I felt it was high time to pat these landowners on the back as well as thousands of other landowners who have an active conservation mindset. After 18 hours of interviews, flying my drone for several days and capturing hundreds of wildlife videos on this property, I boiled it all down to 5 minutes. I'll create a 20 minute video for the ranch, just for their archive. But I know most people won't watch more than 5 minutes and that may be a stretch. I welcome your feedback. Give me three areas I can improve. I already have several in mind. Thank you!

This is the place I'd like to have a Camtrapper gathering. That would be incredible to finally meet all of you.

Great video David, you really did a nice job putting this together. The audio and pictures are crisp, clear, and it flows very well.

Well done David. I have a much better understanding of the ranch now. The Armstrong Jessup duo are an enlightened couple. Wish there were more like them, but your new project gives them a voice and will spread the word.

Thanks for the feedback. It is my hope that I can work with great organizations like Colorado Open Lands, Trout Unlimited, Montana Land Reliance, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and others to spotlight their landowner members who are going the extra conservation mile.

I'm just getting started and welcome any ideas.

Thanks,

David

Well done sir! In this country where more land is beneath roads than in designated wilderness areas it's really important to get more landowners thinking about the future of their lands and use conservation easements to protect privately-owned lands from development.
