Popular hunting program going green
Houston Chronicle
About this time each summer for the past couple of decades, the tens of thousands of hunters who the year before mailed in applications for permits in Texas' Public Hunt Draw Program found in their mailboxes a 90-page booklet containing all the information and application forms for the coming season's hunts. This year, they're getting a letter. And, for all practical purposes, that will be the last time the U.S. Postal Service is involved in any interaction between hunters and Texas' hugely popular Public Hunt Draw Program.

Four inches. That's a little shorter than your phone, a little longer than your thumb and it's the margin of horn mass that dropped the would-be world-record bighorn ram to No. 5 on the all-time list of trophy heads.

Government looking to remove domestic grazing allotments
Ohio's County Journal
Letters seeking signatures are circulating in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives regarding efforts by the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management to remove domestic sheep from federal grazing allotments. The letters are addressed to Department of Agriculture Secretary Thomas Vilsack and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. Half of all domestic sheep in the United States graze on federal lands at least part of the time. The FS and BLM are systematically removing domestic sheep from grazing allotments in the name of bighorn sheep management despite the fact there are reasonable solutions to accommodate sheep ranches.

Summer hunting means it's time to target crows, raccoons
Nisqually Valley News
With the spring turkey hunting season now three days in the bag and rapidly disappearing in the mud spackled rearview mirror of life, hunters may be due for an acute bout of idle hands syndrome since the summer months do not offer much opportunity for tactical tactile tromps through the woods, quarry in tow.

Montana: Public invited to participate in wildlife, plant research at Glacier
Great Falls Tribune
The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center at Glacier National Park in Montana will continue its Citizen Science Program this summer, offering free research and learning opportunities for the public. The program trains individuals to identify, observe and record information on mountain goats, bighorn sheep, pikas, loons and invasive plants in Glacier National Park. These species have been targeted because of their sensitivity to changes in habitat, human disturbances and, in the case of invasive plants, their threat to native biodiversity.

Earth puts on a grand show at America's favorite park
USA Today
On March 30, a 4.8-magnitude earthquake shook Yellowstone National Park. It was the largest earthquake recorded in the park since 1980. A few weeks later, videos allegedly showing large herds of bison and elk fleeing the park went viral. By the time April rolled around, the Internet was abuzz with the rumor that Yellowstone's famed "supervolcano" was on the verge of erupting. Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash says anyone thinking of canceling their plans to visit the nation's oldest and most beloved national park out of fear of a fiery apocalypse should think again.
