Relocation program restoring Nevada's bighorn sheep to the hills east of Reno
The Reno Gazette-Journal
On a blustery morning in late April, Mike Cox and colleagues scrambled over rocky terrain in search of a quarry as elusive as it is nimble. Pausing during a steep climb, Cox scanned the crags of the Virginia Range with field glasses, freezing as a spot of light color emerged in the lee of a jumbled volcanic formation.

Deadly disease rapidly killing off bighorn sheep near Vegas
The Epoch Times
Wildlife experts in California and Nevada are sounding the alarm about a deadly disease that is claiming the lives of a growing number of desert bighorn sheep in the Mojave National Preserve about 100 miles southwest of Las Vegas. Officials for the National Park Service and California Department of Fish and Game say they may have to resort to killing some bighorns to prevent the outbreak from spreading through the largest herd in the 1.6 million-acre preserve.

Court ruling prohibits polar bear trophies from being imported
Outdoor Life
A federal court ruled recently that hunters who shot polar bears in the Canadian Arctic prior to their designation as a threatened species cannot import the animals to the U.S. Polar bears were listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act in 2008 and are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Hunters led by the Safari Club International argued that polar bears taken prior to the ban (and legally) should be able to be imported to the states. But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit agreed with a lower court in siding with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, prohibiting these trophies from being imported.

Indiana couple hunting bobcats bags leopard in backyard
The Daily News
An Indiana couple defending their home from prowling bobcats got the surprise of a lifetime when the massive creature they shot and killed ended up not being a bobcat at all. State wildlife officials believe it was a leopard. The massive cat, photographed stretched out in a Charlestown backyard early Friday morning has been tentatively identified as one better known to Africa, Central Asia, India and China. Authorities believe the deadly carnivore was being kept as a pet.

Hunting with the AR-15
All Outdoor
While the AR-15 platform is an outstanding choice for self-defense, most people don't give it a second thought as a hunting gun. That's too bad, because the AR, in its many guises, can be had in a variety of configurations that are fantastic for hunting different types of game, from small varmints all the way up to some very large and dangerous game.
