Rapid City Journal
South Dakota will use $80,000 from the auction of one bighorn sheep hunting license to help establish a new herd of the big game animals near Deadwood as early as this winter, Game, Fish and Parks Department officials told state lawmakers at a recent committee meeting. The state issues three bighorn sheep licenses annually: two by lottery, one by auction. This is the second year for the auction, which supports the state's sheep program.

Experiencing a turkey hunt for the 1st time
By John McAdams
Big game hunter John McAdams writes: "Prior to this year, I had never seriously been turkey hunting before. I grew up hunting in a part of Texas where turkey populations were low, and I never seemed to have the time necessary to hunt turkey in New York and Georgia while I lived there. However, I recently had a great opportunity to go on a guided turkey hunt on some private land near Spokane, Washington, during Memorial Day weekend. I jumped at the chance to get my first turkey."

8 things no one told you about hunting
The Daily Caller
"Why on earth would you ever want to go hunting?" It's a reasonable question. As a nation, we're getting more and more removed from the wilderness and the animals that live in it, so for many people the concept of hunting is 
foreign. Little wonder: If you're like 80 percent of Americans, you live in a suburban or urban area. Because the population in this country has been trending from country to cities since the end of the 19th century, it's quite likely that your parents and grandparents did, too. If we're not born into the tradition, there are a lot of things that nobody ever tells us about hunting.
