Twenty sheep were placed in a new home Jan. 15 and flown part of the way by a helicopter. The Foundation for North American Wild Sheep transplanted 20 bighorn sheep from an area south of Zion National Park to east of Kanab, using a helicopter to move the sheep. The sheep were taken from the southern-most location to a staging area near Hurricane, Utah, via helicopter, where biologists conducted health tests on the sheep before moving them by trailer to their final destination.

What makes a gun an assault rifle?
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
VideoBrief President Barack Obama announced support for a new ban on military-style assault weapons, further frustrating critics who say the term itself is misleading and based on cosmetics — not carnage or crime. "The number one myth is these are machine guns. They're not machine guns. They're semi-auto, meaning I pull the trigger one time, I get one bullet," said Jeff Serdy of AJI Sporting Goods near Phoenix. More

The Washington Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
President Barack Obama is using the national debate over gun violence to push for further action on his health care law, including insisting on the kind of mental health coverage states must provide under their Medicaid programs. Obama, unveiling his gun proposals barely a month after the deadly school shooting in Newtown, Conn., will make it clear that his health law, known as the Affordable Care Act, allows doctors to ask patients whether they have guns in their homes and will tell them they are able to report any threats of violence they hear to police.

Toth stated that an attempt to enforce a federal gun ban would result in a $50,000 fine and up to five years in prison. More

The best deep-woods deer cartridges
Grand View Outdoors    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What deer cartridges work in the deep woods? Actually, all of them. A .300 WSM will kill a deer in the deep woods just as easy as it will across your neighbor's big cornfield. Is it the most perfectly suited cartridge to the task? Not so. You see, most .300 WSM rifles are moderately heavy, long-barreled bolt-actions. They're perfectly suited to hunting a diverse countryside, but in the deep woods, you don't need all that reach, muzzle blast or recoil. More
