Get ready to hunt
Times-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
April is not only about taxes, but about applying for bighorn sheep, moose and mountain goat hunts. Applications for these controlled hunts in Idaho will be accepted through April 30. Each applicant must possess an Idaho hunting or combination license to apply for a controlled hunt. License fees will not be refunded. Hunters who apply for moose, goat and sheep may not apply for any other controlled hunt in the same year except for unlimited controlled hunts, extra deer, elk or pronghorn hunts, controlled bear hunts or depredation hunts. Those who draw a moose, goat or sheep permit and do not kill an animal may not apply to hunt the same species for two years. More

Support the British Columbia Grizzly hunt
SupportTheBCGrizzlyHunt via Go Petition    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hunters and outdoorsmen have long been the true conservationists in Canada, North America and the world. The money spent by hunters and outdoorsmen and the true care for how wildlife is managed properly is surpassed by no group. Several lobby groups have attempted to pressure and persuade the British Columbia government to end sport hunting. Sport hunting is a very useful and important tool in wildlife management and no group is more passionate about wildlife and proper management than outdoorsmen and the hunting community. These lobby groups have targeted the British Columbia Grizzly bear hunt in an attempt to eventually end all sport hunting. More

USA Shooting    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Corey Cogdell fought her way from fifth to first to secure the first Women's Trap gold medal of the International Shooting Sports Federation World Cup season. From the Tucson Trap and Skeet Club in Arizona, the 2008 Olympic Games bronze medalist displayed tenacity and fire as she earned a spot in the final via a five-person shoot-off. At 70 targets, Cogdell shot from the fifth position and overtook her opponents with a near perfect final — dropping just one target to finish with 94 total targets. Cogdell's last World Cup medal came from the 2010 ISSF World Cup in Acapulco, Mexico, and this win — especially the start of an Olympic year — was meaningful and set a standard for Cogdell. More

"I own a scrapbook store. My profession is based on photographs, and I had my iPhone sitting right there in the car with me, and I was just in so much shock," said Wells, who owns Scrappy-Do in Invermere, British Columbia.

Oudoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In 1947, Andy Anders was standing precariously in a giant live oak tree on Blackbeard Island, Ga. It was the first public bowhunt for whitetail deer on that famous barrier island surrounded by saltwater, just north of the town of Brunswick. Anders was one of only nine bowhunters participating, and he and his friends knew, as Native Americans did, that in order to effectively kill deer using traditional bows and cedar-shaft arrows, they had to get in the treetops to hide and ambush wary whitetails.
