Basin Radio Network
With hunting seasons just around the corner, many prospective hunters are scrambling to find hunter safety classes in their local areas. For hunters not able to find a class before hunting season, the Hunter Mentor Program may be an option.

The Carrier Journal
The first documented free-ranging wolf in Kentucky's modern history was shot and killed by an unsuspecting hunter, state wildlife officials have announced. No charges are expected to be brought because there's no reason for any hunter to expect a wolf to be in the state, since they haven't been here for more than a century, according to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Researchers mourn loss of bighorn sheep
Rocky Mountain Outlook
This year marked the death of a well-known bighorn sheep — a large ram that gave Parks Canada valuable knowledge to help protect his herd in Kootenay National Park. The large male ram, known by park researchers as M645, was found dead this past spring in the Redstreak area of Kootenay National Park. The member of the Radium bighorn sheep herd was thought to have been almost 12 years old.
