West Fargo brothers claim 'twin' rams in Canada
West Fargo Pioneer
Brothers Cody and Kyle Shoman have been hunting with their grandfather, John Kautzman, all of their lives, and that experience paid off on Aug. 21, when both of them shot a rocky mountain bighorn sheep on a hunting trip to British Columbia. "To get a double on rams like this is not something that happens every day, let alone two nice rams like we were fortunate to take," Cody said. "We will be forever grateful to have had this opportunity together."

The ultimate October playbook
American Hunter
Bill Winke, writes for American Hunter: "Opening day is a big deal. As a young duck hunter my entire life revolved around that date. But it is not a widely anticipated event among bowhunters. We tend to have one-track minds we see the rut and only the rut. And since opening day — usually Oct. 1 — is a month before we can expect to see rutting activity, we tend to forget the season even has a starting point. In certain situations, overlooking October can be a big mistake. But you can also make mistakes in October if you don't plan and hunt it correctly."

Wyoming grizzly-attack survivor gives advice
Billings Gazette
Twenty-one years after he was attacked by a grizzly bear sow while hunting bighorn sheep in northwestern Wyoming, Terry Everard still recalls the incident clearly and still carries the now-hidden scars as reminders. Now 58 and retired in Sundance, Wyo., Everard still hunts and still has a great respect for grizzly bears and their power. He preaches safety in the backcountry, including suggesting that hunters and hikers carry bear spray and have it ready for use.

California gun grab: Brown signs lead-ammo bill but vetoes ban on hunting rifles
The Washington Times
California Gov. Jerry Brown split the difference on the pile of gun-control bills sitting on his desk, opting to sign five but veto seven, including a bill that would have banned the sale of many popular hunting rifles. "The state of California already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, including bans on military-style assault rifles and high-capacity ammunition magazines," said Brown in his veto message. "While the author's intent is to strengthen these restrictions, this bill goes much farther by banning any semi-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine."

Custer National Forest
Red Orbit
Custer National Forest is mostly located in the state of Montana, with some areas located in South Dakota. This national forest is comprised of ten sections that equal 1,188,130 acres of land, which are separated into three ranger districts known as Ashland, Beartooth and Sioux. It was created on March 2, 1907 as Otter National Forest, but was renamed in 1908 as Custer National Forest. In 1920, Sioux National Forest was added and in 1932, part of Beartooth National Forest was added. The forest holds many Native American burial grounds, petroglyphs and pictographs. It is thought that Lewis and Clark were the first white Americans to visit the area, which was once used for hunting and shelter by the plains Indians.

Bugling, battling bull elk a sure sign of fall
The Bellingham Herald
It's an eerie, plaintive sound, something like a high-pitched screech combined with grunting and clucking. It can be heard across the forests and meadows of Washington and many other states at only one time of year. It's a true call of the wild, the bugling that bull elk do every late summer and fall. They're competing with other males to be the favorite of females — or dominant male — in the herd.

Two grazing allotments totaling 203 square miles in remote southwestern Idaho's Owyhee County have been permanently retired. Jon Marvel, a public-land ranching foe and a leader of the Sagebrush Habitat Conservation Fund, said his group struck the agreement with two "conservation-minded permittees" who had grazed cattle on the Bureau of Land Management allotments. He declined to name the permittees.

Deer disease now being found in some North Dakota cattle
The Jamestown Sun
A fatal disease that has struck North Dakota's deer population this year is now being found in cattle. Cattle cases of epizootic hemorrhagic disease — commonly known as EHD — have been reported in several counties, according to State Veterinarian Susan Keller. Ranchers, particularly in southern and southwestern North Dakota, should be looking for symptoms in their herds, including excessive salivation, swollen tongues, mouth ulcers, fever, reproductive problems and lameness, she said.
