Joel Webster joined the TRCP in 2007 and has spent much of the past decade working alongside hunting and fishing groups, wildlife managers, decision makers and agency leaders to shape federal public lands management for the benefit of fish, wildlife and sportsmen. A born and raised Westerner and lifelong sportsman, Joel is committed to hunter/angler issues and has been since he was first old enough to carry a rifle.
Joel was intimately involved in the development of the Idaho and Colorado roadless rules and the creation of the new National Forest System planning rule. Joel has worked alongside the TRCP western team to balance public lands energy development with other resources, such as fish and wildlife habitat, and is currently working with diverse interests to conserve unfragmented fish and wildlife habitat in areas managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
Joel lives in Missoula, Mont. and earned a Masters of Environmental Studies at the University of Montana.
When not empowering sportsmen on behalf of our hunting and fishing heritage, Joel spends his time fishing mountain streams for wild trout in the summer and pursuing deer, elk and game birds in the fall. There is nothing Joel enjoys more than stalking buck mule deer in the semi-arid mountain ranges of southwest Montana.
