Bighorn sheep to be killed to stop pneumonia outbreak
The News Tribune
Washington state wildlife officials will euthanize as many as 50 wild bighorn sheep in the Naches area in hopes of curbing the spread of a deadly pneumonia outbreak. State Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U. S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services biologists will spend the next several weeks removing sheep from the Tieton herd, about 10 miles west of Naches.

The '40 percent' myth
National Review
Gun control advocates have recently been throwing around an impressive new number. President Barack Obama used it recently, claiming: "as many as 40 percent of guns are purchased without a background check." Vice President Joe Biden and everyone from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal to USA Today repeatedly use it. That "fact" provided the principal support for his first announced gun-control proposal, "universal background checks." But unless you include family inheritances and gifts as "purchases," it is simply false.

Gun control is 'dead on arrival' in Congress
Ammo Land
Alan Caruba, an Ammo Land contributor, writes: "The essence of magic is diversion, distracting the audience to watch the right hand while the left is setting up the illusion. It was a lesson I never forgot as I watch politicians divert attention from their actual agenda and right now President Barack Obama is engaged in that as he goes around the nation asking for more gun control."

Quick tips on backcountry meat care
By Marc S. Smith
As hunters and conservationists, we should put meat care at the top of our priority list. Unfortunately for those not properly geared up and prepared, that's not always the case. Game care should begin immediately after finding and tagging your animal. Getting a game animal down in a remote area is a wonderful experience, but the size of a big mule deer buck or elk can be quite intimidating for a first-time western hunter. Here are a few tips to ensure you get as much edible meat and your beautiful trophy back home with lowest risk of spoilage.

2013 bighorn sheep numbers strong
Valley City Times Record
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department's annual bighorn sheep survey revealed a minimum of 297 bighorn sheep in Western North Dakota. The 2012 count was second highest on record and 5 percent above last year's survey. In total, biologists counted 87 rams, 156 ewes and a record 54 lambs. Not included are approximately 30 bighorn sheep in the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Big game biologist Brett Wiedmann said the northern badlands population was the highest on record, but the southern badlands herds declined slightly.
