2013 bighorn sheep survey
Valley City Times Record
Even though results from this summer's survey indicated the bighorn sheep population in western North Dakota remains steady, State Game and Fish Department biologists are concerned about a significant decline in the number of adult rams. Brett Wiedmann, big game biologist in Dickinson, said the July-August survey showed a minimum of 299 bighorn sheep, unchanged from last year and only 17 percent below 2008's record summer survey.

Union leaders opposing California bill to ban lead bullets for hunters
Fox News
Several unions have joined in opposition to a California bill that would stop hunters from using lead bullets, and have asked Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown not to sign the legislation. The Democratic-led Legislature passed the bill earlier in September, based in part on studies that appear to show animals ingest lead fragments found in the soil and the dead prey they eat, which can contaminate the human food supply.

Why don't more hunters use 9.3x62mm Mauser cartridges?
By John McAdams
Today I want to discuss a lesser known, yet potent and versatile hunting cartridge: the 9.3x62mm Mauser. While relatively popular in southern Africa and Europe, relatively few hunters in the United States utilize this outstanding cartridge, usually relying on the more common .375 H&H Magnum instead when hunting large and dangerous game. While the .375 H&H is an outstanding cartridge, the 9.3x62mm can provide 85-95 percent of the power with less recoil and with the added bonus of being able to fit in a rifle with a standard-length action.

UN Arms Treaty will be menace to US for years to come
Fox News
Secretary of State John Kerry's signature of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty was a serious error, one that will have far-reaching consequences for American foreign policy and American sovereignty. Those consequences will be even worse because the Senate, which has signaled many times that it is opposed to the treaty, will likely have no real opportunity to reject it.

Be safe when handling game meat
Odessa American
Levi Stone, a contributor for The Odessa American, writes: "If you're like me, hunting and fishing is more than just a sport ... it's a way of life. It offers both the freedom of being outdoors and opportunities, throughout the year, to provide an array of quality foods for you and your family. Sure, many grocery stores offer a variety of meats that are convenient and readily available, but they fall short to wild game and fish if you're looking for a "less-altered," leaner and healthier source of protein. In addition, the gratification hunting and fishing affords is knowing exactly where your meat came from. However, all meat regardless of the source can be prone to bacterial and parasite contamination, so safe food handling is a must."

Are domestic sheep responsible for the bighorn sheep die-off in the Mojave?
The Wildlife News
Bighorn sheep in the Mojave Desert of California and Nevada have been dying of pneumonia for some months now but, as with many of these outbreaks, the original source of infection hasn't been conclusively identified. Some reports noted that an angora goat had been shot by a hunter and that it may have been the source of infection, but recently, reports have emerged that sheep being trucked through the Mojave preserve may be the source of the infection. According to an article in the Riverside Press-Enterprise, the carcasses of four domestic sheep were found along with pellets near Halloran Summit on Interstate 15.
