New Mexico seeks court ruling on bighorn sheep, ibex and oryx hunting license quotas
Las Cruces Sun-News
The New Mexico Game and Fish Department asked a federal court to lift a decades-old order preventing the agency from providing New Mexico residents with the majority of annual licenses to hunt bighorn sheep, ibex and oryx. The department wants the U.S. District Court to lift an injunction in place since 1977, when the court determined that New Mexico discriminated against out-of-state hunters by limiting licenses that would be issued to them for the three species.

Little risk to population in late-day gobbler hunts
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The science behind afternoon spring gobbler hunting has little to do with gobblers. It's all about the hens. Traditional conservation theory held that by mid-May, morning breeding activity was waning and after noon hens were settled on their nests incubating eggs. Approaching hunters could frighten hens off the nests, leaving the unprotected eggs vulnerable to predation.

Antler art — Senior project incorporates hunting
Lone Star Outdoor News
Combining the love of hunting and a high school art project might be unusual, but not for Mimi Sams, a senior at Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas. The Art Studio class project required creating a collection of art with a theme, so a hunting theme seemed suitable for the daughter of Lone Star Outdoor News founder David J. Sams. "I wanted it to be something that reflected my life, and to do something different from paintings or clay sculptures," Mimi said. "And I wanted something that related to my lifestyle and hunting experiences."
