Rules for bighorn sheep hunting in Nevada relaxed
The Associated Press via The Oshkosh Northwestern    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hunters will no longer be mandated to attend a class before they can hunt bighorn sheep in Nevada. In years past, hunters would have to attend an indoctrination course before receiving their hunting tag. Hunters also were required to carry binoculars or a spotting scope of a certain power while in the field. A regulation approved by a legislative panel removes those rules. The Nevada Department of Wildlife says those requirements were implemented years ago when the state was trying to boost bighorn sheep numbers. The purpose was to ensure hunters could tell the age of an animal and prevent the killing of young ones. More

Wild Sheep Foundation presents inaugural artemis award
Wild Sheep Foundation    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recognizing that woman play just as vital of a role as conservationists as men, the Wild Sheep Foundation launched a new service award to recognize the outstanding women conservationists and hunters within its membership. The one question remained, what do we call this award? Research led us to Greek Mythology — which led us to Artemis. Artemis, the great Olympian goddess of hunting, wilderness and wild animals, was often depicted carrying a bow and arrow. She was the protector of all wildlife and wild lands. She was the perfect fit. More

Bighorns settling in to life in Pine Ridge, Neb.
Omaha World-Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Other than wandering down county roads and suffering a few cuts from encounters with barbed-wire fences, Nebraska's new bighorn sheep herd from Canada is adapting to life in the Pine Ridge. "They're learning quickly about fences, mostly navigating them by going under the bottom wire," said Todd Nordeen of Alliance, the commission's Panhandle wildlife manager. Nordeen updated Nebraska Game and Parks commissioners on the bighorn relocation project that brought 40 bighorns from Alberta, Canada, to Nebraska. One ewe died shortly after arrival. "They're doing pretty well" Nordeen said. More

The Desert Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A hiker who went to court to force the California Department of Fish and Game to reveal the locations where bighorn sheep were sighted near the Bump and Grind trail has received the records he sought. In addition to releasing the information, the state agency agreed to pay $22,500 in attorney costs and fees related to Bermuda Dunes hiker Blaine Carian's trip to court to fight for the data. Carian, who lives in Bermuda Dunes, sought the information to prove his point that bighorn sheep aren't usually found near the popular hiking trail. More

Conservation Officer Bob Butcher says two Lytton, B.C., men have confessed to killing three bighorn sheep near Lytton. At this point, the two unidentified men will most probably go through a restorative justice program and will not be facing criminal charges. Butcher said they could have faced "thousands of dollars" in fines if they'd been found guilty in a criminal court. More

National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Action    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
March 13, U.S. Sens. Mark Begich, D-Ala., and Joe Manchin, D-W.V., introduced S. 2188, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012. The bill is the Senate companion to H. R. 822, which was approved by the U. S. House recently by a vote of 272-154. S. 2188, like H.R. 822, would allow any person with a valid state-issued concealed firearm permit to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that issues concealed firearm permits, or that does not prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms for lawful purposes. A state's laws governing where concealed handguns may be carried would apply within its borders. More

I'm a girl, and I hunt
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In Roman mythology, the master of the hunt was the goddess Diana. She was praised for her strength, athletic grace, beauty and hunting skills. In Freemasonry, she was a symbol of sensibility and imagination, of poets and artists. Shrines were erected in her honor; stags followed her wherever she went; she ruled the forest and the moon. Georgia Pellegrini likes to think that Diana's influence has never entirely waned, that hunting was never just about men getting together in the woods. Hunting is for all of us, an extension of our being both humans and animals — our first work and craft, one of our original instincts. More
