The Dickenson Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hunters from all across North Dakota this fall are stepping foot in a field or through a shelterbelt in search of pheasants, deer, moose, elk or bighorn sheep. The wild animal is on their mind, but equally as important for those hunters is the safety for the group and its members. "You never know what could happen out in the field," Dickinson Trinity senior Alex Binstock said. "You always have to wear eye protection, have orange on and know what your surroundings." More

Will the hot, dry summer hurt Montana hunting?
KAJ-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
September was so dry in Missoula, Mont., that it broke the dry spell record set back in 1969. And as general hunting season opens, one question being asked is how will past weather conditions affect the big day? This summer was rough for everyone. Hot, dry and smoky. A combination which made early rifle season a nightmare for hunters. "Conditions were very hard. The animals were up high, warm evenings and super-hot days. Very slow hunting, it slowed down the bugle and our success rates were lower than normal," professional guide Gary Gilchrist said. More

Deer hunters must be alert for tree stand hazards
The Florida Times-Union    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While deer hunting statistically is among the safest of all sports, there are inherent dangers of hunting whitetails out of the timber tops. This is clearly shown every autumn by the number of accidents — and deaths — of outdoorsmen who tumble from tree stands. Most hunters who use tree stands are well aware they should use a safety strap or rope of some type. Such straps are made commercially and most tree stands come equipped with them. Many safety straps fit around a hunter's waist or shoulders, with another strap that attaches to the tree. Should a hunter fall or should the stand tumble, a hunter won't plummet to the ground, but, rather, will be held snugly to the tree, where, presumably, the hunter can scramble to safety. More

The Denver Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Like a lot of gals, Jackie Gross still dreams of a perfect wedding day. But before she calls the caterer or picks flowers, the 30-year-old from Silt, Colo., has a date to keep with an unusual guest of honor. Thanks in large part to Colorado fans that rallied in her support, Gross left recently for Zimbabwe to fulfill her role as Tahoe Films' "Extreme Huntress" of 2012, pursuing a Cape buffalo for a forthcoming episode of the TV show "Eye of the Hunter." She didn't exactly leave her fiance standing at the altar, but for the time being he's playing understudy to an ornery African beast. More
