Work to protect Boulder-White Clouds Mountains
Idaho Press-Tribune
In late October, we shared the stage with representatives of several Idaho sportsmen's organizations to announce our dissatisfaction with Congress. For nearly a decade Congress has attempted to protect a true sportsmen's paradise, the Boulder-White Clouds Mountains in Central Idaho. They have failed. The recent government shutdown was a spectacular display of dysfunction. It was the tipping point for many of us in hunter orange and fishing waders.

30 bighorn sheep from YPG to be moved to Tucson
Yuma Sun
The Arizona Game and Fish Department will relocate about 30 bighorn sheep from the U.S. Army's Yuma Proving Ground to the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson in November. There has not been a wild bighorn sheep population at that location for well over a decade. The bighorns, the first of about 100 to be reintroduced into the Catalinas over the next two years, are intended to help re-establish a once-flourishing herd that died out in the late 1990s.

Mountain goats get nonprofit advocate in Rocky Mountain Goat Alliance
Bozeman Daily Chronicle
The record-breaking $480,000 bid for the Montana Governor's bighorn sheep tag set the wheels of Peter Muennich's mind turning. A "(mountain) goat crazy" hunter, he witnessed the auction in Nevada earlier this year. After returning to Bozeman, Mont., Muennich went to the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks office. He learned that unlike elk, bighorn sheep and pheasants, mountain goats did not have an associated nonprofit that helped fund research and conservation efforts.

Cold water means fall anglers, hunters must think of safety
Toledo Blade
With a lot of fishermen still out on the lake as large groups of walleye are migrating back to the western basin, and waterfowl hunters working the rivers and the marshes as waves of ducks and geese dot the sky, fall can be a very productive time in the outdoors. But it is also a time when the stakes get much higher for the angler or the hunter who finds themselves in the water unexpectedly.

Montana hunter bags a ranked bighorn
The Western News
Whitefish, Mont., hunter Glen Prestegaard recently shot a bighorn ram ranked by the Safari Club International record book as No. 3 in the world for muzzleloader hunting. Prestegaard took the ram on public land near Plains, Mont., during a self-guided trip. Prestegaard scouted the area, flew over the mountains by helicopter, then hiked with his black-powder muzzleloader for "many days" before spotting a big ram several miles away.

Dallas Safari Club's auction of black rhino hunt draws praise, criticism
Dallas Morning News
The Dallas Safari Club has created an international debate over its plans to auction a hunt for a black rhinoceros, a species listed as endangered by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. Wildlife experts estimate about 5,000 black rhinos roam the wilds of Africa, 1,795 of them in Namibia, where the auction hunt will be. The Convention on International Trade has approved a sport-hunting quota of five black rhinos annually in Namibia and five in South Africa. Permits are typically issued to a safari outfitter, who sells them to hunting clients.

Watch for nature's signs that fall has arrived
The Desert Sun
Although day length has been getting shorter since June 21, the rate of shortening reaches its maximum in September. By late September, days are getting shorter by a whopping two and a half minutes each day. Although readers may not notice the change, plants do. More specifically, the physiology of plants is affected by the changing length of darkness. Certain plants start their flowering process as nights become longer and this is most dramatic in September.
