Idaho may expand auctions for trophy hunts
The Republic    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Department of Fish and Game officials are fighting a plan to expand special trophy hunting tag auctions after fielding complaints about the fairness of such high-priced hunts for the wealthy. A bill that cleared the House Resources and Conservation Committee on a 14-0 vote would raise additional revenue for wildlife management and habitat protection by holding annual auctions of up to three elk, deer and antelope tags and one moose, wild big horn sheep and mountain goat tag.

Hunting license applications are due in a couple weeks for limited big game. The season itself doesn't start until fall. But the Division of Wildlife wants sportsman to be watchful for some who want to start early. The D.O.W. monitors hunting seasons to make sure things go right. "Our seasons are set based on the biology of the animals," Grand Junction's district wildlife manager, Elissa Knox said. "The animals still have a chance to breed, we're not hunting animals in the spring time." That's why she takes poaching very seriously. More

In the pursuit of his 20-year-old passion for hunting wild sheep, Bill Osuchowski has found himself in some harrowing situations, including a grizzly bear scare, a life-threatening flash flood and a run-in with Mexican police.

A proposal to settle years of litigation and allow public hunting of wolves in parts of the Northern Rockies faces its first legal test, as it goes before a federal judge who has twice rebuffed attempts to lift protections for the predators.

American Hunter    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Not all of us need or want a King Ranch package F-350, when a good ole basic F-150 will get us where we need to go. Brand new, these shotguns will run you less than $500. Best of all, when the moment of truth arrives and the ducks, deer, turkeys or whatever slip into range, they'll deliver the same results as a gun three times the cost. More

Marine sniper shares secrets
Shooting Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Back in the day, whenever that was, 300 yards was the outdoor benchmark that got you into "long-range" territory. Much like catching a 10-pound bass or shooting a 10-point buck, sending a bullet precisely on its way the length of three football fields was quite the feat. This day and age, I have rifles that are zeroed at 500 yards, a mere starting point 200 yards beyond the old long-range benchmark. More

The future of hunting worldwide
The Marlborough Express    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As a bulging human population (now 7 billion, 9 billion by 2050) confiscates the habitat of wild animals, they, and the chance to hunt them, diminish. Hunting has become more contrived and costly in the rest of the world; and on the public estate for free roaming animals it will become increasingly rare. We look more and more unique in being able to offer this. Potentially, hunting has big niche-tourism potential. More
