Mountain lion population could pose a threat to reintroduction of bighorns in the Catalinas
The Republic
An already "robust" population of mountain lions in the Catalina Mountains appears to be increasing — and that could pose a threat to a planned reintroduction of bighorn sheep in the range this fall. Lions, which sometimes prey on bighorns, might hinder or even derail an effort to rebuild a herd in the Catalinas. In response, state wildlife officials have approved a plan for what they call the "administrative removal" — or killing — of lions that kill sheep.

Four dead bighorn sheep found in the California desert along with reports of other sickly animals in the region have prompted an investigation into a possible outbreak of animal pneumonia. A National Park Service employee recently found the dead bighorn on Old Dad Mountain, about 15 miles southeast of Baker, Calif., which is near the Nevada border. A news release from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife reported that, in addition to the dead sheep, the employee observed animals walking unsteadily and exhibiting labored breathing.

The rifle and the camera
Sports Afield
The rifle is the primary tool of the hunter. A few hunters consider their rifles just that—tools—and nothing more. Most of us, though, also enjoy rifles for their own sake: the fine lines, craftsmanship, that peculiar combination of wood (or synthetics) and metal that turns a simple, powerful tool into a valued possession, a cherished heirloom, an old friend.

Precision vs. accuracy
American Rifleman
In terms of defensive handgun shooting, it's important to understand the differences between the words accuracy and precision. For your average everyday range trip, precision is what gets the blood pumping — watching as rounds strike repeatedly inside the center-most rings of a target is nothing short of wholly satisfying. In practicing for self-defense, accuracy is what should be valued, which can be simply defined as hitting your target. Whether in the X or hanging on to the edge of the seven ring, a shot on target is an accurate shot.
