Great Falls Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Call it a piece of hunting history or a catalog of conservation successes and you would be correct. But the newly published "Boone and Crockett Club's 27th Big Game Awards, 2007-2009" also is a collection of fascinating stories about some of hunting's most spectacular trophies. The book is part of a series that spans more than half a century, and it's now available for purchase. It is a 704-page paperback that lists more than 4,900 trophies in 32 categories of North American big game taken between 2007 and 2009. Listings include B&C gross score, final score, location and date of kill, hunter and owner, overall rank and more. More

New Mexico hunters to get more licenses under Senate bill
KWES-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
New Mexico State Sen. George Munoz wants to provide a little relief for New Mexico hunters frustrated by their lack of success in the state's yearly drawing for a license to hunt elk or other big game on public land. Legislation by the Gallup Democrat would earmark 90 percent of big game licenses for New Mexico residents. Under current law, 78 percent of licenses are reserved for New Mexicans and out-of-state hunters get 22 percent. Munoz and other critics contend that quota system shortchanges New Mexico hunters.

The Colorado Division of Wildlife is looking for landowners in southeast Colorado to lease hunting access for the 2011 seasons. The Division's Big Game Access Program, or BGAP, will continue to provide hunters access to private lands for a fifth year while the agency completes an analysis of the pilot program that began in 2007. Last year, 15 parcels of land totaling more than 140,000 acres were enrolled. Properties enrolled last year must re-apply to participate. More

Statesman Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Phillip W. Schneider Wildlife Area in Oregon will be closed beginning Feb. 1 and running through April 14. The annual seasonal closure is permanent and is designed to protect wintering mule deer on the 25,000-acre wildlife area in the northeastern corner of Oregon.

The animal's numbers have been in decline throughout the West. More

Lawmaker aims to make hunting in city limits legal
KSAZ-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
State Senator Frank Antenori, a Republican from Tucson, Ariz., has introduced a bill that would make it legal to hunt within city limits. Senate Bill 1334 would preempt city governments from prohibiting people from hunting on private, federal and state trust lands located within a municipality's boundaries during open season. During open season, hunters within a city's limits could use shotguns, rifles or archery equipment to hunt. More

Pennsylvania board approves limit on tree stands and blinds on state game lands
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners gave final approval to a regulatory change to allow the placement of portable hunting tree stands and blinds from two weeks before the opening of the first big game season to two weeks after the close of the last big game season within each respective Wildlife Management Unit, excluding the spring gobbler season. "Hunters need to remember that locating a tree stand on State Game Lands does not reserve a hunting area," Commissioner Weaner said. "The first person to arrive in a certain spot has the right to hunt that area." More

Too much 'BBD' on TV these days
Great Falls Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A noteworthy trend is developing in the outdoor media and it involves one of my favorite themes — the heavy emphasis on killing and the lack of emphasis placed on hunting. No pulled punches here. Mostly it is an outdoor television industry problem of too much "big buck down" mentality brought to us by grinning red-necked yahoos who hoot and holler and high-five after even marginal shots on game.
