Karl Malcolm - Archive
Karl Malcolm grew up outdoors in the northwestern Lower Peninsula of Michigan. A childhood spent camping, hunting, fishing, gathering, and exploring without boundaries gave Karl a deep appreciation for the importance and significance of wild places. Among less enjoyable jobs, Karl worked as a First Mate on a charter salmon boat on the Grand Traverse Bays, hunting and fishing outfitter & guide, and consultant for wildlife management programs. Karl completed a PhD in Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, while studying bears in North America and Asia. He also worked as a hunter education instructor in Wisconsin and became heavily involved with the state’s Learn to Hunt Program, hosting classes geared toward teaching ecologically-minded adults how to find, kill, process, and prepare their own wild food. Karl currently holds a two year Presidential Management Fellowship with the U.S. Forest Service where he is applying his interests in wilderness, wildlife, and reconnecting people to the land.
