Presence of bighorn sheep in North Dakota offers cause for appreciation
Grand Forks Herald
It's a pretty consistent fact of life that the more we have, the less we appreciate it and conversely, what we're lacking we may tend to hold in higher regard. In North Dakota's outdoor world, the whooping crane population is a good example. Their continental population is only a few hundred, and for many people, spotting one as they migrate through the state each spring and fall is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Young hunters age 16 and under have taken 152 Boone and Crockett-qualifying trophies over the past three years. That total represents a 126 percent increase over the previous three-year period.

After gun defeat, where does Obama go from here?
Roll Call
President Barack Obama has barnstormed the country promising action on gun control legislation, and the Senate acted — to vote down the heart of the bill. The president is vowing that the fight for tighter gun control measures is not over. But Obama's cache in Congress has always been low, and it appears his strategy for continuing to push the issue largely rests on something that has proved elusive to him in other recent policy fights, including this one: public pressure.

Bighorn herd reintroduced to Sierra Nevada area
Los Angeles Times
The newly formed group of Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep barreled up rugged Olancha Peak, the 10 females and four males becoming the first new herd of the endangered animals reintroduced in California in 25 years. Once abundant throughout the region's alpine areas, the state's population of Sierra Nevada bighorn had dwindled to two herds by the 1970s. Their numbers have been devastated by disease spread by contact with domestic sheep and goats and unregulated commercial hunting.

Giuliani: Failure to address mental health doomed gun control bill
Newsmax
The Senate's failure to address mental health in the proposed gun legislation weakened it, Rudy Giuliani said on CBS Face the Nation. "If we're really going to improve here ... and attempt to do something to prevent another Sandy Hook, you've got to do something about how secretive these mental-health records are," the former New York City mayor said. "I think that would have made a much more difficult vote for those people who voted against it."

2014: The next frontier in the gun control battle?
CBS News
After the Senate struck down a series of measures aiming to strengthen the nation's gun laws, Democrats and gun control advocates unleashed their disgust in a flurry of statements and speeches: The hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" led a campaign to publicize the name of everyone who voted against the bill; Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., a victim of mass gun violence, sent out an email shaming Congress for having done "nothing" in the face of mass violence; and in a defiant and emotional speech, President Barack Obama lambasted Congress for having "caved to the pressure" from the gun lobby at the expense of protecting "the lives of all our children."

Michigan Tech studies wolf-dog encounters in bear hunting
WWJ-TV
Bear hunters will tell you that a good way to attract a bear is to put out bait. And in 10 states, including Michigan and Wisconsin, that's perfectly legal. Hunting dogs are another useful technique in the bear-hunter's toolkit and 17 states say that's just fine. But who else likes bear bait? Gray wolves, that's who. And wolves that are feeling territorial about a bear bait stash can — and sometimes do — kill hunting dogs released at the bait site.

Mayor Bloomberg says children will 'die' because gun control legislation failed
New York Daily News
A seething Mayor Bloomberg vowed to defeat Senators who voted against tougher gun control laws in Washington. "Children lost. They're going to die and the criminals won," Bloomberg raged at a Manhattan event the morning after legislation expanding background checks on gun buyers died in the Senate. "This is a disgrace." Bloomberg said he was planning to call some of the senators who voted in favor of the bill to congratulate them for doing the right thing — particularly those from pro-gun states.

Mark Dittberner pursues passion, big game
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
Mark Dittberner can still hear the words his Webster Schroeder health teacher said to him one day in 1972: "Dittberner, you're never going to amount to anything." Standing in Dittberner's 40-by-20-foot trophy room stuffed with exotic animal mounts from trips around the world and appreciating the successful life he has carved out as a hard-working welder, body shop mechanic and lawn service owner, I can only think of one thing: "Boy, if that teacher could see this guy now." "I guess I’ve done OK" said Mark as we caught up with the exploits of Rochester's pre-eminent big game trophy hunter.
