Federal land closures do not apply to state-managed hunting areas
The Oregonian
Uncertainty reigning in Washington, D.C., spilled all the way into the ranks of hunters as 561 federally managed wildlife refuges closed nationwide, including those with hunt programs. The closures, however, do not affect state-managed wildlife management areas, all of which remain open.

The best cure for altitude sickness? Time and water
Outdoor Life
When it comes to backcountry hunting, the great equalizer is altitude. How your body responds to the thin air of high elevations will either make or break your hunt. There are a lot of products and techniques out there that claim to shorten the amount of time your body needs to acclimate to altitude. Some folks recommend huffing into a diver's snorkel for weeks prior to your hunt in the mistaken belief that you can train your brain to run with oxygen deprivation.

Tips for Bowhunting fall turkeys
Outdoor Life
Whether you've shot your buck early or are just looking for a new bowhunting challenge, wild turkeys offer opportunity and excitement—and the finest meal ever to hit your Thanksgiving table. While bowhunters continue to discover the joys of spring turkey hunting, autumn's hunt doesn't see much stick-and-string participation. Yet archery gear is legal in all states that have fall wild turkey seasons.

Hiking and fishing the Beartooths in the 'tween season
The Billings Gazette
No mosquitoes, no crowds — that's just the start of what attracts savvy outdoors enthusiasts to schedule trips during the post-Labor Day "shoulder season." Families and inner tubers vacated trout streams to focus on school activities just as fishing was perking up from the summer doldrums. The woods are relatively quiet as the most popular hunting seasons have yet to open. Backcountry permits are easier to obtain for restricted park and wilderness areas. A full season of trail maintenance has been completed.

Gov. Brown signs Bump and Grind, bighorn sheep bill
The Desert Sun
California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill that specifies a three-month annual closing of the popular Bump and Grind Trail and calls for devoting at least $100,000 to monitoring Peninsular bighorn sheep in the area. State Assemblyman Brian Nestande, R-Palm Desert, authored the bill and has said it was intended to be a "cleanup" measure after another bill approved last year didn't specify the three months of each year that the hiking trail would be closed.

Judge throws out Indiana ban on deer hunting preserves
Outdoor Hub
The decision of an Indiana judge may soon allow hunters in the Hoosier state to hunt at fenced deer preserves. According to the Indianapolis Star, Harrison County Circuit Court Judge Evans ruled that the state Department of Natural Resources went beyond its authority in 2005 when it banned the operations. The judge reasoned that since deer at these facilities are privately owned, they cannot be regulated by the DNR. The issue is a controversial one in Indiana and many other states, but plaintiff Rodney Bruce says it is a major victory after years of legal battles.

Bighorn Institute raising money to replace barn
My Desert Sun
Dave Nyczepir a contributor for The Desert Sun, writes: "Desert bighorns see you before you see them. White specks along the mountainside, I needed binoculars to make them out properly. So it was disconcerting to find a 2-year-old youth at attention, observing me, as I adjusted the lenses. 'He's a handsome one,' said Aimee Byard, associate director of the Bighorn Institute. 'He's going to be a big ram.' But the institute's captive-breeding population still needs to eat, and on Aug. 30, the barn housing its alfalfa stores burned to the ground. Three golf carts biologists used to traverse the expansive habitat also were consumed in the blaze."
