Mountain goat hunting
Outdoor Life    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The last time Bob Inman invited Greg Thomas on an adventure, Thompson left his house in Ennis, Mont., at 4:30 a.m. and didn't get home until the next day at the same time. Inman is a wolverine biologist who works for the Wildlife Conservation Society and that time they tracked a female wolverine to her den and unsuccessfully attempted to sedate and implant a transceiver in her kit. They trudged out of the mountains in the dark, beaten and bruised. The memory of that trip was on Thomas' mind when, in October, Inman announced he'd drawn one of Montana's highly coveted mountain goat tags for a unit in southwest Montana's Madison Range. More

Commission changes crossbow rules for 2011
Omaha World Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Wider use of crossbows as legal big-game hunting equipment is coming to Nebraska next year. Nebraska Game and Parks commissioners approved the change in Norfolk, Neb. Crossbows have been allowed as legal equipment during firearm seasons for decades. Starting in 1985, crossbows were allowed during the archery season for those with a permanent disability that prevented them from drawing a bow. The 6-3 vote removed all restrictions on crossbows, including the disability provision and draw weight. Starting in 2011, the new regulations allow crossbows as legal archery equipment for deer, antelope, elk, turkey and bighorn sheep. More

A possible resolution to the long-running dispute over the proposed Lot 48 resort on Columbia Lake in British Columbia was unveiled at the Regional District of East Kootenay meeting. Negotiations are now in progress between the Lot 48 owners and a "national conservation organization" for sale of the property that would be used for "conservation purposes," said property owner Carol Seable. She then asked the RDEK Board to postpone for a year a motion to down-zone the property in order to allow time for the sale negotiations to proceed. More

A salute to whitetails
Petersen's Bow Hunting    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over the past 30 years, Eddie Claypool has been blessed to pursue many different species of animals in many different types of habitat across this great land. From Alaska to Arizona and New York to Nevada, he has lived large and hunted hard. Every outing has presented its own unique challenges, and Claypool has become a rich man from the experience gleaned. And though he has gone through many cycles of obsession with many Western species, one thing has never changed — whitetails have always been his favorite quarry. More

Hunting fills void for retired New York teacher - and his freezer
The Post-Standard    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
After more than 60 years of hunting, Phil Stewart still struggles to answer why it's so important to him. "I hunt because it fills a need somewhere in my being that I can't explain," said the 76-year-old retired high school biology teacher. "I get a sadness, but a thrill, every time I make a good clean shot on an animal and kill it." Throughout his life, Stewart has hunted in New York, Pennsylvania, in addition to Alaska, Canada, Texas and Africa, and for the past two decades he has made an annual trek to Wyoming to hunt pronghorn antelope and mule deer.

Poaching in Montana is illegal - and can be very costly for those found guilty of the crime. In the case of a Florida retirement community developer, the maximum penalty in fines and prison time could reach more than $200,000 and more than 20 years in prison. Why are the penalties so steep? More

Hunters long to rack up trophies
Great Falls Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's that time of year when hunting talk centers around antlers, or "horns." It happens throughout the fall, but in spades during Montana's five-week deer and elk general season. Probably because there are so many people afield now: about 240,000 gun hunters versus maybe 40,000 archers back in September at the peak of archery season. Also, everyone, it seems, wants a trophy rack to hang on the wall at sometime in his, or her, life. Even many meat hunters profess a desire for one big bull elk or buck deer before they head to the happy hunting grounds in the sky. More

New Mexico Wildlife Federation criticizes bighorn decision

Bill Richardson's campaigns helped get 61 Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep moved to state trust land his northeastern New Mexico ranch leases, then got the public banned from the land.
