Something is killing off the moose
The Associated Press via Republican & Herald
Across North America — in places as far-flung as Montana and British Columbia, New Hampshire and Minnesota — moose populations are in steep decline. And no one is sure why. Twenty years ago, Minnesota had two geographically separate moose populations. One of them has virtually disappeared since the 1990s, declining to fewer than 100 from 4,000.

Fewer than expected take part in deer-hunting opener
The Seattle Times
Deer hunters headed into the woods across Washington for the recent opener, and it was a mixed bag of success with the Okanogan region garnering the best results. "Participation was a bit lighter than expected, but it has been that way for the last couple of years," said Dave Ware, a state Fish and Wildlife game manager. "A lot of people wait until later in the season hoping they might be more effective."

Kansas deer hunting is nationally known, but maintaining status is a challenge
The Kansas City Star
Kansas wildlife biologists marvel at how far the state's deer hunting has come in such a short amount of time. The Sunflower State has one of the shortest hunting traditions in the nation. It wasn't until 1965 that the first modern deer season was opened. And that was after a 50-year closure of hunting in the state. A total of 5,000 permits were issued in that first season and 1,500 deer were taken. And hunters and wildlife biologists thought that was extraordinary.

Outdoor Life Magazine
Niwot, Colo., resident Andrew Dickehage was walking to work before sun-up when he heard a rustling in the brush behind him. He turned to the source of the noise to see three coyotes. The animals took turns lunging at him, cutting and biting his arms, neck and face. The 22-year-old Dickehage said that he feared being knocked to the ground so he assumed a wide stance and began swinging his flashlight at anything that moved.

Pheasant hunting season outlook on par with last year
The Bellingham Herald
The general pheasant hunting season opened Oct. 19 in Eastern Washington, and hunters should find bird counts similar to previous years. Decent to good weather earlier this spring made for good conditions when broods were hatching, especially in Region Two (Adams, Chelan, Douglas, Grant and Okanogan counties). That is particularly good news in Grant County, which has the highest average pheasant harvest rate from 2008-12.
