Valuable info gathered at hunter check stations
The Spokesman-Review
It wasn't clear recently why some hunters were driving past the highway check station marked by big fluorescent orange signs while others willingly stopped and shared the information of their hunt with Washington Fish and Wildlife Department biologists. Sometimes hunter behavior is as mysterious as the ways of secretive whitetail bucks.

Bighorn sheep set for release near Tucson, Ariz.
KVOA-TV
The Arizona Game and Fish Department will release 31 bighorn sheep into the Catalina Mountains. The Catalinas used to have a healthy sheep population of about 75 to 150, but it died off in the 1990s. Biologists do not know the exact reason. Wildlife managers cannot guarantee the transplants' survival, but recent fires have improved habitat. Brian Wakeling is the Division Branch Chief for AGFD.

Still hunting: Step like a deer when the woods are loud
Field & Stream
In all of deer hunting, there's nothing so challenging and rewarding as walking up a big wilderness buck. Perched in a treestand, you all but deny a buck its eyes and ears. Following a track, you at least know there's a deer at the end. On a drive, you have your buddies to thank. But when you still-hunt the big woods, you usually walk alone. You don't know where the deer are — the nearest buck could be right in front of you or a mile and a half away. And it's you, as much as the deer and often more, who will skulk and slink and throw shadows and rustle leaves and brush against branches. Seeing a buck before it sees you is a serious challenge.

Respectful hunters avoid trespassing
Billings Gazette
Trespassing is an easy crime to pooh-pooh when you can hear a rare life list bird species over the hill or if the perfect mountain biking route cuts the corner of someone else's back 40. Even some hunters — the one outdoor group that's specifically schooled on trespassing laws during mandatory hunter education courses — can rationalize going through another person's fence for a quick shot at game that's eluded them everywhere else. But nothing about hunting is more basic than respecting the land that provides our game and getting permission before entering private property.

Mojave Desert: Bighorn sheep numbers way down
The Press-Enterprise
Only a fraction of the bighorn sheep typically seen in a Mojave Desert mountain range was spotted during a recent helicopter survey, a sign that a deadly pneumonia outbreak has taken a significant toll on the population, a scientist said Nov. 12. Crews found no obviously sick animals in many of the other mountain ranges the sheep inhabit in the eastern Mojave. Blood test results will show whether those sheep are carrying the bacteria that causes the disease.

Getting the most from trail cameras during the rut
Ammo Land
For whitetail hunters, there is no more exciting time to be in the woods than during the rut. As you are reading this, the northern latitudes are approaching the peak of the rut and there is a chance that some of you are actually reading this from your blind or tree stand. But is simply being in the woods during the rut a sure bet to get you an opportunity at the buck of a lifetime?

Black Hills bighorn herds hurt by pneumonia
KELO-TV
Bighorn sheep are an inspiring part of life in the Black Hills. They show up along roads, where they can create traffic hazards. But the biggest threat to bighorns these days isn't cars and trucks. It's domestic sheep and goats and the disease they can transmit when they come into contact with wild sheep.

Wyoming ranchers, outfitter say seismic exploration hurt wells, deer hunting
Casper Star-Tribune
Two south-central Wyoming ranchers and a hunting outfitter said seismic exploration on prime hunting land drove away deer, could harm water wells and hurt sage grouse protection. Ranchers Sharon Salisbury O'Toole and Patrick O'Toole complained to the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission in person in Casper, Wyo., saying the exploration company, GRMR Oil & Gas LLC of Broomfield, Colo., didn't file a big enough bond for their work. In seismic exploration, workers set off explosions and measure reflected sound waves to map underground geologic formations.

Boone and Crockett Club bighorn sheep finally scored after more than 40 years
Outdoor Life
The Boone and Crockett Club's Trophy Watch posted this photo of a huge bighorn sheep picked up in the late 1960s by a steelhead fisherman in Spences Bridge, British Columbia. During the past 45 years the bighorn skull reportedly changed owners multiple times and was only recently mounted and officially scored. The horns measure 200 2/8 inches, tying this bighorn with two others as the No. 26 largest bighorn in the B&C record books.
