Bighorns bound for the count
Albuquerque Journal
It doesn't take long to understand why this facility in Hidalgo County, 26 miles north of Lordsburg, New Mexico, is perfect for desert bighorn sheep. For the most part, the rugged foothills go in one of two directions — up or down. Looking at a summit from a wash at the base of these red-and-gray walls of rock, you would figure only a bighorn sheep or something with wings could scale them.

The rancher who found the dead animal the next morning applied to the provincial government to keep its massive horns. He also reported them to the Boone and Crockett Club. In March, a team from Boone and Crockett traveled to Red Deer in Alberta, Canada, to assess the horns. These were the largest horns ever recorded for the species.

Reloading your own ammunition: Polishing the brass
By Ken Jolly
Polishing the brass is my favorite step in reloading. Since I have not bought any new ammo in years, my brass casings come from range pickups and reusing my own. No matter where you get your brass, it accumulates quickly. You end up with a cache of tarnished and dirty metal that will polish into heaps of gold (or at least it will seem as valuable as gold to you). New cases for pistols sell for about 9 cents per round, so reusing these are a significant savings.
