Big-game research a big game of pain
The Daily News
Although not in the job description for a wildlife biologist, it helps if you can take a punch. Woody Myers, a Washington Fish and Wildlife Department big-game researcher, has handled more than 1,000 deer, elk, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and moose in his 36-year career. None of them was tame.

12 hidden gems for hunting and fishing
USA Today
Looking for prime places to hunt and fish? If you're like the majority of American sportsmen, you don't own a well-stocked lake or a forest teeming with deer. But what you do have is access to the waterways, beaches, marshes, woodlands, plains, prairies and mountains that make up the National Wildlife Refuge System. Tending to the habitats of fish and wildlife on more than 150 million acres across the country, the federal system is made up of 561 refuges and 38 wetland management districts. Of those, you can hunt on 367 and fish on 309. In fact, opportunities to take game or catch fish exist in every state in the nation (except Hawaii).

Outdoor Life
Every rifle has its advantages and disadvantages. Some rifles are super light, but not every hunter can shoot them accurately because of the increased recoil.

Not every rifle is up for the job, but here are 10 to take on a once-in-a-lifetime hunt.

In vitro prion protein conversion suggests risk of bighorn sheep to transmissible spongiform encephalopathies
7th Space
Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies affect both domestic sheep and captive and free-ranging cervids (chronic wasting disease; CWD). The geographical range of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis; BHS) overlaps with states or provinces that have contained scrapie-positive sheep or goats and areas with present epizootics of CWD in cervids. No TSEs have been documented in BHS, but the susceptibility of this species to TSEs remains unknown.
