Bighorns show record lamb recruitment
The Roundup
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.

Outdoor Life Magazine reviews TrackingPoint rifle on the hunt in Texas
PRWeb
Precision Guided Firearms have been the talk of the tech, outdoors and firearms media since their launch in January 2013. While many have discussed the system, very few have had the privilege to actually be able to shoot it and even fewer have been able to experience it off the range and in action in a real life long range hunting scenario. John B. Snow, the shooting editor from Outdoor Life magazine, took the new TrackingPoint system out in Texas to hunt for nilgai to see how the precision long range hunting rifle really performed while in action. Along with other Outdoor Life staff members and a team of TrackingPoint firearm's experts, they took long distance shots and harvested game.

A wild turkey may just have a mind of its own
Portland Press Herald
Bob Humphrey, a contributor for the Portland Press Herald, writes: "Conventional turkey hunting wisdom tells us it's nigh onto impossible to call a love-struck tom away from his hen. Sage veterans will explain it's much easier to call turkeys uphill and all the how-to manuals tell you to avoid obstacles like water and fences when calling a gobbler. Being self-taught, I didn't know any of those things when I killed my first Maine turkey. He was strutting for a hen and when I called he folded up, walked downhill, ducked under a barbed wire fence and waded through ankle-deep water (my ankles, not his) to reach me. I have since learned all that advice is good and holds true most of the time. But there are exceptions to every rule."

86-year-old hunter bags a trophy
Fort Worth Star-Tribune
For Dave Conger, who turns 87 this soon, the outdoors is his Fountain of Youth. "I've hunted and fished all my life," he said. And he continues to do so. "I don't have the strength and stamina I used to, but I can still get out," he said. So, Conger hunkered in a portable ground blind with his son-in-law, Tom Anderson, when a huge gobbler strutted into shotgun range, enticed by Anderson's calling. Conger, of Oak Grove in Anoka County, Minn., fired once, dropping the 23-pound long-beard.

Young voters aren't sold on gun control
U.S. News and World Report
Young people have helped push the gay marriage issue to the forefront, with so many voters 30 and under supporting marriage equality that Republicans have been forced to accept — or at least re-examine — the matter. Sticking to an anti-gay rights agenda could cost the GOP votes down the road and many Republicans are wisely seeing that on a purely political basis, things need to change. The same trend, however, is not mirrored on the matter of gun control.
