Surprised hunter's turkey call brings in bobcat
Outdoor Hub
First-time turkey hunter Bud Griffith, 44, thought the wooded area near his Kentucky farm was prime turkey territory. Problem was, so did the local bobcat population. Griffith's opening day hunt was spoiled in part by a confused bobcat that mistook his face for a turkey. "I was sitting there with my back against the trees and was making the turkey calls," he said. Several decoys were set up a few dozen yards from where he sat with a gun in his lap. Griffith did not notice that a bobcat had been stealthily approaching him from behind, keen on a feathery meal. The hunter saw only a blur before he was hit with a swipe from the feline to his right eye, which was thankfully protected by glasses.

Illegal trophy export attempt of Arctic trophies costs Mexican hunters $80,000
Nunatsiaq
Four Mexican hunters returning from Nunavut, Canada, paid $80,000 in fines before they made a hasty retreat from Winnipeg back to Mexico — heading home without their polar bear and narwhal trophies. The men paid individual fines ranging from $10,000 to $30,000 to the federal government for offenses under the Wild Animal and Plant Protection and Regulation of International and Interprovincial Trade Act and the Fisheries Act.

GOP aims to slow federal ammo buys
The Hill
Republicans want to limit the number of bullets federal agencies can purchase so American gun owners can buy more. Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe and Rep. Frank Lucas have introduced a bill that would prohibit every government agency — except the military — from buying more ammunition each month, than the monthly average it purchased from 2001 to 2009.

California Department of Fish and Wildlife creates 1st bighorn sheep herd in 25 years
Sierra Sun Times
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife, along with volunteers from around the state, have established a new herd of federally endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep. "This is the first reintroduction effort of a new herd of Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep since 1988," said Tom Stephenson, CDFW bighorn recovery program leader. Historically, Sierra bighorn were abundant throughout the Sierra Nevada; however, by the 1970s, only two herds remained. Disease spread by domestic sheep and unregulated commercial hunting are believed to have caused their demise.

NRA expanding into the gun, sportsman show business
The Washington Examiner
The National Rifle Association, arguably at the peak of its power in the wake of its success defeating President Barack Obama's gun control bid, is expanding into a new direction: operating the nation's biggest gun and sportsman show. Long a defender of gun rights, the NRA tells Secrets that it is moving into the outdoors show business to guarantee that gun makers and gun users won't be pushed into a corner or eliminated entirely from the annual Harrisburg, Pa. show for hunters, anglers and campers. "This is fantastic," NRA President David Keene told Secrets.

As Biden speaks and gun show sales continue to boom
The Examiner
In Puyallup Wash., ammunition dealers at the monthly Washington Arms Collectors' show could hardly have been busier and some were thanking Vice President Joe Biden for keeping their sales strong. As Brietbart reported, the vice president predicted the other day that Congress will pass some sort of gun control legislation "before the year is out." Remarks like that are all it takes for the "lead rush" to continue.
