Safari Club International files motion for preliminary injunction against elephant importation bans
WSF
Safari Club International's litigation team took the second step in its challenge to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's bans on the importation of sport-hunted elephants from Zimbabwe and Tanzania. SCI filed a motion for a preliminary injunction, asking the court to immediately lift the importation bans. SCI's motion explained that emergency relief is necessary to prevent harm to those who have elephant hunts planned for 2014 and to the elephants whose conservation has been placed at risk by the FWS's actions.

Nevada wildlife biologists are recommending 100 hunting tags for ewes to reduce the numbers of some bighorn sheep populations and improve the overall health of herds. The Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners earlier authorized the hunt — the first in Nevada targeting female bighorn sheep. Biologists are recommending 85 tags for Desert bighorn ewes found in southern Nevada and 15 California ewe tags in northern Nevada.

Boone and Crockett via WSF
The largest grizzly bear ever taken by a hunter has been entered into Boone and Crockett records. The big bruin, taken in 2013 near Fairbanks, Alaska, scores 27-6/16. It missed the World's Record mark by 7/16 of an inch but landed a spot as the second-largest grizzly ever recorded. The reigning World's Record is a skull found in Alaska in 1976. Bears are scored based on skull length and width measurements.

Hunters, shooters plan to keep spending
The Shooting Wire
While pundits may still be arguing over how much of an economic recovery the United States has experienced since the recent recession, companies that make and sell shooting and hunting products have been fortunate to enjoy a steady stream of business. For 2014, outside of firearms, things don't look like they are going to slow down either. According to a recent HunterSurvey.com poll, the majority of shooters and hunters expect to spend as much on shooting and hunting equipment as they did last year.

Bighorn sheep hold strong through winter weather
The Jamestown Sun
In terms of sheer hunter interest and popularity, the question of, "How did the deer and pheasants make it through the winter?" is asked more often than, "What's the latest on the bighorn sheep population?” It's not because people don't care about bighorn sheep. On the contrary, you'll find interest from hunters, and citizens young and old alike when it comes to the niche population of bighorn sheep North Dakota supports. For instance, each year around 8,000 to 9,000 residents apply for less than a handful of bighorn sheep licenses, with odds of success typically about one in 2,000.
