A Tribute to Jim Posewitz, a Conservation Legend
"One of Montana’s greatest voices for wildlife conservation went silent this summer when my friend Jim Posewitz died at age 85. Since Jim’s death, there have been many tributes to him and his well-lived life. For hunters and anglers especially, Jim was not only a relentless advocate for wildlife but a constant reminder that we must give back more than we take and that we cannot back away from tough fights to preserve our outdoor heritage and the inheritance that earlier conservationists provided to all of us. I met Jim in the 1970’s when his devotion to conservation, his skills as a writer and orator and his sense of humor had already distinguished him as an outstanding leader. Over the last 50 years, Jim has been a guidepost to do what’s right by way of wildlife and we honor his memory by working everyday to build on his wonderful legacy." -Tom France, Regional Executive Director
