American Prairie Reserve: Conservation project finding success
Bozeman Daily Chronicle
On the cold and stormy evening of Oct. 20, 2005, 16 American bison were released on the grasslands of northeast Montana. The bison, from Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota, roamed out into a prairie landscape the species had not inhabited for 120 years. Their new home — the American Prairie Reserve — is an ambitious and controversial project that aims to connect 3.5 million acres of publicly and privately held grasslands north of the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge. As bison calve on the APR this spring, the herd is expected to grow to more than 600 head. The vision to support more than 10,000 bison on the Montana prairie, in addition to antelope, mountain lion, elk and countless other species of plants and wildlife, is redefining private land stewardship in the West.

Wild dogs cause problems for people in Nepal
Science News
In Nepal, dholes are known to inhabit Chitwan National Park and Kanchenjunga Conservation Area, but their presence in the rest of the country has been unknown or, at least, unrecorded. But in the 1990s, there were reports that the dogs lived in the Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve, a protected area in the western part of Nepal that the government set aside for hunting. Now a team of researchers has confirmed the presence of dholes in the reserve and found plenty of opportunity for conflict with locals and other wildlife.

Increasing your odds of success during deer season
By John McAdams
In the United States, the majority of big-game hunters use centerfire rifles during the general deer-hunting season. While there are many advantages to hunting with a centerfire rifle, the general deer hunting seasons are often the shortest and most crowded. Luckily, there is a way around these hurdles: hunting during the archery or muzzleloader seasons. While every state is different, hunting with a bow or a muzzleloader will increase (sometimes significantly) the length of your deer hunting season.
