A caretaker and a killer: How hunters can save the wilderness
WSF via The Atlantic
By Tovar Cerulli: "Fourteen years ago, I stood in the snow, struggling to digest what I had heard. A group of us, gathered to learn about monitoring and protecting wildlife habitat, had just discovered that our instructor — Sue Morse, founder of Keeping Track — was a deer hunter. I found the news disturbing. How could she work to safeguard the homes of animals she described as "neighbors" and then turn around and shoot one of them? I found it inconceivable that someone could be both an environmentalist and a hunter, a caretaker and a killer."

WSF via SCI
Statement By Safari Club International President Craig Kauffman: "Safari Club International's advocacy team is alerting the international conservation community that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to soon announce a new policy to reject all elephant ivory imports from Zimbabwe and Tanzania. It is unknown precisely when the decision by the U.S. FWS will occur, but SCI will do everything in its power to fight this reckless decision that has no basis in law, science or conservation policy."

Planning for a dream hunting trip
OutdoorHub
Derrek Sigler for OurdoorHub, writes: "How many times have you seen someone on a social media site posing the question, 'If you could go anywhere and hunt anything, what would it be?' I used to answer those truthfully, but it got to be rather redundant and kind of depressing. So I started answering with the most off-the-wall thing I could think of. 'Unicorns on Easter Island,' was a fun one."

Firing off safety tips to young hunters
The Advocate
It was cold and overcast at the Dug Hill Rod and Gun Club when Sam Lee, 14, Kaleb Reid, 12 and Grant Boerner, 11, spotted the turkey, their firearms held upright, each waiting for Hunter Safety Instructor Andrew Gray to say something. "Where's the best place to shoot a turkey? You don't want an animal you shoot to be in pain, so you want a clean kill. Do you have a shot?" Gray asked the boys, and then gestured at a bit of orange plastic netting behind the large bird. "What about that orange back there? It could be a leaf, but it could be another hunter."
