The State of Minnesota recently announced that it will hold its first wolf season. The early season would begin on Nov. 3 and continue until the completion of deer season. The late wolf season would coincide with bobcat season (Nov. 24 to Jan. 6) and is also open to trapping and snaring. There will be a total of 6,000 wolf licenses auctioned off and the harvest quota is 400 wolves. However, anti-wolf hunting activists plan to try and short circuit the system. More

In wild animals, charting the pathways of disease
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Peering into the nostrils of wild sheep is part of the nascent field of ecoimmunology, which seeks both to understand the immune systems of wild animals and to use that knowledge to gain a better understanding of human immune systems. Until recently, this kind of knowledge has been gleaned almost exclusively by studying pampered, genetically similar lab animals, which don't reflect a real-world scenario. More

Opposing Views    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hawaiian wildlife officials say they have identified about 100 non-native Axis deer on the northern and southern ends of the Big Island. Authorities believe the mysterious appearance is actually the result of someone lowering some of the deer onto the northern tip of the island by helicopter. On the southern coast, tracks indicate that deer were pushed into the ocean and forced to swim to shore. More

Would you hunt with a 10mm handgun?
Shooting Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Trying to find a semiauto suitable for hunting that is also comfortable to carry isn't easy. There aren't many auto pistols chambered for magnum cartridges, and the few available offerings are too big and heavy for daily carry. The fact that it is the most powerful factory cartridge offered in a traditional 1911 made the 10mm Auto the realistic choice, but the 10mm can stand on its own merits. More

Survival knives: 20 great knives for wilderness survival
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

We all have our favorites and differing reasons why we like one knife above all others. While the concept of "living off the land" with just a knife has more to do with solid outdoor skills than it does with knife choice, it's still fair to say that the quality and usefulness of your knife could be the difference between life and death.
