Nevada panel votes to keep same quota of 20 black bears for hunters to bag this season
The Associated Press via The Republic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nevada wildlife commissioners voted to keep the same quota of 20 black bears for hunters to bag in Nevada this season. But unlike the state's inaugural bear hunt last year, they decided not to end the season early if hunters kill a certain number of female bears. Under their action, the season set for Sept. 15-Dec. 31 will end if and when a total of 20 bears are killed regardless of sex. Last year, the hunt would have ended early had a sixth female or a total of 20 bears been killed before the end of the season. Fourteen bears were killed last year. More

Oppose export control amendments to HR 4310
NSSF    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Due to outdated U.S. export regulations, the firearms and ammunition industry and many other U.S. industries that export products are at a severe disadvantage when competing with foreign companies. Now some in Congress are going to try and stop export control reforms that are critical to helping U.S. companies compete globally so we can restore and grow the U.S. economy and create more jobs right here at home. That’s why the firearms industry fully supports the ongoing effort to update and modernize our export controls. More

Truth is collateral damage to anti-hunters, legislators
Ammoland    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When it comes to asserting the rights of animals, the end truly justifies the means for the animal rights lobby and their minions in Congress and state legislatures across the country. This phenomenon has been on stark display in the United States House of Representatives and in the California Senate over the recent past. More

New road-kill rules take effect in Idaho
Coeur d' Alene Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
New rules approved during Idaho's recent legislative session allow people to recover, possess and sell certain wildlife killed by accidental vehicle collisions. Individuals who want to salvage road kill must notify the Idaho Department of Fish and Game within 24 hours either in person, by phone or by Internet to receive a salvage permit within 72 hours. Game animals, including furbearers, may now be salvaged, as long as they died as a result of an accidental vehicle collision. This rule change only allows dead animals to be salvaged; it does not allow injured animals to be killed by passing motorists. More

The Hunting Report    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Big game hunters who also wingshoot are likely familiar with the well-respected company David Denies Wingshooting, which has been offering dove and duck shoots in Argentina for more than 25 years.

What you may not know is that these are both under the same umbrella company and have now started a big game hunting operation called Red Stag Patagonia. More

Payson goes wild
The Payson Roundup    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The day held a treasure chest of wonders, left ajar. The Bighorn Sheep Society used the almost mythological curl of the second biggest set of desert bighorn sheep horns ever found to help promote its long, brilliantly successful effort to stave off extinction for the nimble desert sheep. Arriving settlers nearly exterminated the remarkable creatures, since they tended to pose for hunters on rocky pinnacles. Their habit of taking the high ground and scanning the landscape with binocular vision worked fine on mountain lions but not so well against rifles. More
