Bighorn sheep watching is a popular pastime
Island Park News    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A favorite pastime on a clear day is to drive on Hwy 87 to Montana and then drive along Hwy 287 to view the bighorn sheep, mountain goats deer and elk that winter near the road. The sheep are most easily spotted because they forage very close to the highway, and some great photos can be taken with little effort. More

What's the best big game bullet?
Shooting Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When jacketed bullets arrived on the hunting scene more than 100 years ago, their performance on game was a great improvement over cast bullets. However, they still left a lot to be desired when compared to those made today. Their performance on game was not bad when the .30-30 Winchester and .30-40 Krag were the new cartridges on the block, but the introduction of faster cartridges, such as the .270 Winchester and .300 H&H Magnum, put bullet manufacturers in a desperate catch-up situation. Accuracy also left a bit to be desired. More

Missoulian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nonresident hunters will have about 1,200 additional chances to get a Montana big-game license, after the state failed to sell out its initial out-of-state license offering. Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials said price increases and rule changes in the nonresident license programs after passage of last year's Initiative 161 may have depressed interest. The leftover tags will go on the market April 18. By the March 15 application deadline, about 15,800 people had applied for the 17,000 available elk or deer/elk combination licenses. In previous years, there were up to twice as many applicants as licenses for the drawing. More

Sides see eye-to-eye on cougar hunts
The Spokesman-Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
These adolescent males can be trouble. They wander around, get into fights on hostile turf, bother people just trying to mind their own business. The experts don't always agree on the best way to handle these problem teens. Should we hunt them down with dogs, and shoot more of them or fewer? Adolescent cougars, carnivores from the species puma concolor, have for years been a point of contention because of their potential for increased confrontation with humans. More

Keys to wildlife photography
Minneapolis Star-Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
T.R. Michels is often asked what the keys to wildlife photography are. The answer to that is quite simple, but maybe not so easy to implement. The first key is to have a good camera, and good lenses. If you are not selling your photos to a magazine, you can probably get by with a point and shoot camera with a zoom lens. If you want to sell photos to a wildlife or hunting magazine, you'll have to step up to a digital camera that has the ability to use interchangeable lenses. More

Alaska Dispatch    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nobody is going to sneak any Trojan bison into Interior Alaska while Rep. Alan Dick is on the job. The Republican lawmaker from Stony River, Alaska, has made it known he fears the transplant of wood bison, an endangered species, to the Innoko River country could be part of a scheme to stymie human use of more than 1,200-square miles of largely deserted country east of Anvik on the Yukon River.
