National Hunting and Fishing Day this weekend
Tiger weekly    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hunters and anglers have always been among the most vocal supporters of conservation and scientific wildlife management. Over 100 years ago, this group recognized that rapid urban development and unregulated uses of wildlife were threatening the future of many species. President Theodore Roosevelt and these early conservationists called for the first laws restricting the commercial slaughter of wildlife. They urged sustainable use of fish and game, created hunting and fishing licenses, and lobbied for taxes on sporting equipment to provide funds for state conservation agencies. Due to their actions, numerous species began to recover from decades of unregulated exploitation. More



Teen bags a once-in-a-lifetime ram on Hart Mountain in Oregon
The Mail Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When it comes time every May to apply for the requisite hunting tags, the Scott family of Rogue River, Ore., always tries for that one great fantasy hunt, a California bighorn sheep outing on southeast Oregon's Hart Mountain. With just four tags available, they realize it's about as likely as winning a $10 million lottery. Even so, dad Kevin Scott has put in every year since he was 18 years old. He's now 44. Son Dane Scott, 15, has applied twice. Sure enough, the Cascade Christian High School sophomore drew the coveted tag and filled it brilliantly when he shot a ram that exhibited all the flair Dane Scott could have wanted. In fact, they nicknamed the ram Flare, because the end of one of its horns flicked out like a cowlick. More

Hunters asked for Chronic Wasting Disease samples
Jackson Hole News & Guide    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is again asking hunters around the region to submit tissue samples from elk, deer and moose to the department to test for chronic wasting disease. The news comes as numerous hunting seasons open across the western part of the state. The department increased its efforts to obtain samples after a moose was diagnosed with CWD in the Bedford, Wyo., area in 2008, marking the first time the disease has crossed the Continental Divide in Wyoming.

Right to hunt, fish amendment needed
The Knoxville News Sentinel    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's an interesting tactic anti-hunting groups are taking when it comes to states considering right-to-hunt-and-fish amendments to their constitutions: they are trying to kill them with disinterest. When Tennesseans go to the polls Nov. 2 the state's right-to-hunt-and-fish amendment will be on the ballot. For the amendment to become part of the state constitution it will need 50 percent of the total number of votes in the gubernatorial race plus one. Three other states - Arkansas, Arizona and South Carolina - have similar referendums this year. More

Hunting the elusive ibex
El Paso Inc.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The closest Dennis Kauffman ever got to an ibex was years ago when he was sitting on a mound of stones in the Florida Mountains in Deming, N.M., eating lunch. One came running down a path toward Kauffman and stopped just four or five feet from him. "His beard swung in the wind," Kauffman recalls. Then it sprang away as quickly as it burst into view. The Florida Mountains near Deming are the only place in the United States where Persian ibex roam freely. The public can see them at dusk or early dawn, and in the winter they can be hunted. More

Coughing bighorn sheep at Skalkaho, Mont., perplex wildlife officials
The Missoulan    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Standing behind grass taller than its back, a small bighorn lamb cranes its neck to watch the parade of people shuffling up the hillside. Nearby, another four bighorn sheep hardly look up from their morning siesta. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Bitterroot biologist Craig Jourdonnais is leading the walking field laboratory coming up the hill. Every few steps the participants stop to listen. "Hear that?" whispers Neal Anderson, FWP's wildlife lab supervisor. More

Nothing underlines the urban/rural divide in Canada better than the debate over whether to scrap the long gun registry, due to be voted on in the House of Commons. It's a funny thing, but although it's been around for 15 bitterly controversial years, it's only in the last few weeks, as the vote approaches, that certain important facts about the registry have emerged.

We have a lovely and talented local Markleeville, Calif., woman on television. Teddy Carlson-Brown appears at 7 a.m. each Thursday for 30 minutes on the show "The Ultimate Sportsman."

It's fun to see the final product," she said. More

Quest for a place to hunt
Long Range Hunting Online Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A lot of "how-to's" on western hunting deal with the logistics of the hunt. Equipment, transportation, caliber choice, physical condition and so on are all very important considerations and without attention to these details the hunt could be one you would rather forget. Here the focus will be on sources to tap for relatively inexpensive hunts on private land. More
