The Associated Press via The Valdosta Daily Times

The truth about bear hunting in other states
Bangor Daily News (poll answer required to read full article)
Thanks to Bob Duchesne, whose recent Saturday morning "Wild Maine" 92.9 WEZQ-FM show on the bear referendum featured outstanding interviews with wildlife biologists Oregon, Washington and Colorado, we now know the truth.

Researchers tracking 25 collared moose in northeast Washington
The Spokesman-Review
James Goerz was so close he could hear her chewing as she browsed. It seemed impossible that he couldn't put his eyes on the moose, the largest member of the deer family. The cow had been just 50-70 yards away for hours in an old northeastern Washington clear-cut, yet he couldn't see an ear, a leg or even a patch of dark hair. "This is a lesson in how many critters we pass without knowing what's there," the wildlife researcher said as he listened to blips from his radio receiver. A global positioning system collar on the cow had beamed its location to a satellite and down to his laptop computer at 2 p.m. the previous day.

Bill Sargent: Huge wild hog is hunter's trophy
Florida Today
Relaxed in a folding lawn chair next to a cabbage palm with a 12-gauge shotgun lying across his lap, Justin Perchalski suddenly was jolted to his feet by the biggest wild hog he'd ever seen. The boar weighed 340 pounds, measured 6 feet in total length and its sharp tusks were more than 3 inches long. By hunting standards, a wild hog of such size is an once-in-a-lifetime trophy.

Bucks from the hip: 4 great handguns for deer hunting
Field & Stream
In the sport of hunting deer with handguns dwells the spirit of the cowboy who lived by his six-shooter. Today's handgun options include long-barreled quasi-rifles chambered for ­super-magnum rounds. We know, though, that true handgun hunting means revolvers and semiauto pistols, optical sights optional: The challenge is getting close enough — about bow range — and finding the proper rest for a solid hit. Special handgun seasons can add days afield, but hunting with a pistol is a thrill anytime — particularly with any of these four excellent models.

Are crossbows easier than compounds?
American Hunter
Hunter Jeff Johnston writes: With more states legalizing crossbows for normal archery seasons, I sometimes hear traditional and compound bowhunters bemoan that crossbows are much easier to shoot and use effectively on game. Then some crossbow hunters retort that crossbows are not easier. In fact, they say, crossbows are cumbersome and they must get just as close to the game as compound bow users do. While this author believes that hunters should be allowed to hunt in any style or with whatever tool they choose — so long as it's legal in their area — I want to know: Are crossbows easier than compound bows to use effectively?
