69-year-old hunter takes dream ram on sheep hunt
The Kingman Daily Miner    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Very few people ever get the opportunity to hunt desert bighorn sheep in Arizona. Each year there are less than 100 tags issued statewide to pursue the most sought after big game animal in the state. This year, Don Martin had the opportunity to hunt with Maricopa resident Glenn Adamson. Glenn had drawn tag number five out of the seven offered this year in Unit 15D. Glenn had gone into the 2011 draw with 17 bonus points. More

Hunting camps full of bonding, laughter
South Coast Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hunting camps aren't just places for hunters to eat and sleep in close proximity to hunting areas, dry their clothes and keep warm between the actual hunting. Whether a tiny, one-room cabin with a woodstove and no running water, or an elaborate lodge with all the comforts, camps are rich in folklore, tales of adventure, memories, family bonds and life-long friends. At some camps, you meet new people who touch your lives, some becoming close friends, even though they may live in another country. More

Montana FWP considers using hunters to kill stray bison
The Associated Press via Billings Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks officials gave their initial approval recently to a plan that would let hunters kill bison that stray beyond designated areas north of Yellowstone National Park and from the Fort Peck and Fort Belknap Indian reservations. The plan is to remove bison that wander outside of defined "tolerance areas" beyond the park and where wild Yellowstone bison have been slated for transfer, such as the two northeastern Montana reservations.

Hunting up game recipes
Athens Banner-Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With deer season over in North Georgia, many families are finding their freezers packed with venison. While most deer hunters love the pounds of sausage, jerky and burger that usually are produced after a good hunt, some might be looking for a new way to prepare the 40-plus pounds of lean meat that the average whitetail deer can produce. Chef Georgia Pellegrini, who recently released a book of memoirs and wild game recipes called "Girl Hunter: Revolutionizing the Way We Eat, One Hunt at a Time," recommends taking a second look at some of the more muscular cuts of the deer this year.

Eric Corey brought joy of hunting to others with disabilities
The Post-Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Eric Corey, who shared his passion for hunting with other disabled people, battled ALS for almost 10 years. The Knox, Ill., resident died Jan. 18 at age 25. Corey began to show signs of the illness at age 15 and was diagnosed by age 16. Still, he didn't let the debilitating illness, one that took his grandfather's life, limit him. The avid hunter — with the help of his parents, Doug and Carol Corey — found ways to stay mobile and continue hunting. More

The Republic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission has voted to reject a plan to reintroduce bighorn sheep to historic range in the Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park area in Western Montana after neighboring landowners voiced opposition. The recent vote is the first defeat for Montana's Bighorn Sheep Conservation Strategy adopted in 2010. The state has a goal of establishing 10 new herds. More

New Mexico further restricts nonresident hunting
NTA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The New Mexico Legislature, in its first session of 2012, made a number of new restrictions on nonresidents that will become effective this year. The Legislature amended the special drawings for licenses that had long provided that 22 percent of the licenses should be issued to nonresidents with 12 percent with nonresidents who are to be guided by a New Mexico outfitter and the remaining 10 percent not required to be guided by a New Mexico outfitter or guide. It now limits the licenses to no more than 16 percent, if that, by providing 10 percent of the licenses for residents and nonresidents who are contracted with a New Mexico outfitter prior to the application, and 6 percent to nonresidents who are not required to be contracted with an outfitter.

Officials consider wolf hunt in Wyoming's Rockefeller Parkway
Jackson Hole News&Guide    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Regional National Park Service officials say they would consider wolf hunting in the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway, if the hunt would help Wyoming meet its management goals. In 1.5 pages of comments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, John Wessels, Intermountain Region regional director, said wolf hunting in the parkway isn't ideal. "NPS preference is to not allow wolf hunting within the boundaries of the parkway, particularly if the state can reach wolf management goals outside the boundaries of the parkway," Wessels says in the letter. "However, NPS recognizes the need for consultation with the state and will coordinate to reach wolf management goals." More

Sage grouse, bighorn sheep habitat vs. oil wells
The Bismarck Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An advocate for North Dakota's wildlife said it's time for state agencies to quit working at cross purposes, with one trying to preserve habitat for sensitive species while another leases oil rights in the middle of the same habitat. Mike McEnroe, who heads legislative matters for the state Wildlife Society chapter, said an example is the state Game and Fish Department's work to conserve sage grouse habitat to keep the bird off the federal Endangered Species list at the same time the state Department of Trust Lands plans to lease minerals in the area.

Hunters and wildlife both win
Carson City News - Carson Now    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The California Department of Fish and Game is pleased to announce four random drawings for big game license tags in 2012. These drawings will raise funds needed for vital wildlife conservation programs. In 2011, DFG offered two random drawings — one for an open zone deer tag and one for an Owens Valley zone elk tag — which together generated more than $130,000 for conservation. DFG will bring back these tags this year and make two more tags available for random drawing — one northeastern California pronghorn antelope tag and one Kelso Peak/Old Dad Mountains desert bighorn sheep tag.

Tips on tracking wounded deer
The Republic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
You know how there's always one guy at any hunting camp that doesn't know the meaning of "quit?" Joe Major, yep the guy who made his name synonymous with bass fishing on False River, was a doggoned good hunter and the first guy to leave in the morning and the last one back at the camp, most times long after dark. And don't ever tell him that you "shot" a deer, because the next words were "as in shot and hit? or shot and missed? or shot and I don't know?" More
