The Beaver State Podcast Episode 60: Vegan to hunter with Carla Brauer

June 24, 2021

When animal rights activist and practicing vegan Carla Brauer decided to look more deeply into animal agriculture to be more informed about it, it led down a rabbit hole and eventually to a chicken egg, which was the start of her journey towards hunting, taxidermy and small-scale farming. Brauer is now the Regional Director for Back Country Hunters and Anglers, a hunter education instructor for Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the owner of Dermestidarium Skull Cleaning, a service that utilizes beetles to strip the meat off of bones. We talk LGBTQ representation in hunting, the many pathways people may travel to hunting and the simplicities of doing what you love and helping others find their way there in this episode.
