NRA strongly opposes the nomination of Andrew Traver to head BATFE
NRA-ILA    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The NRA strongly opposes President Obama's nomination of Andrew Traver as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Traver has been deeply aligned with gun control advocates and anti-gun activities. This makes him the wrong choice to lead an enforcement agency that has almost exclusive oversight and control over the firearms industry, its retailers and consumers. Further, an important nomination such as BATFE director should not be made as a "recess appointment," in order to circumvent consent by the American people through their duly elected U.S. Senators.

USA TODAY    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Knox Semenza headed into the Highwood Mountains of north central Montana with his father last month, he had visions of shooting his first mule deer buck.

On Oct. 23, agent Mark Freiberg cited Ernesto Valenzuela of Fort Bliss, Texas, with illegally shooting two does in Arizona's Tumacacori Mountains.

North Dakota hunters take Alaska moose hunt DIY style
The Grand Forks Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Jim Benson and Jeff Boushee had spent more than a week on their own hunting moose in the Alaska backcountry, living in tents and eating dried food.

Pink is the new hunting color
WDBJ-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Now, we know what you are thinking. Treebark, Outfitter Tuff, Realtree, Mossyoak, Woodseye and any other version of camouflage, those are the colors of any good hunter. But if you think pink is not a hunting color, we have to ask, "Where have you been?" Pink is adorning many things in the outdoor world. Camo, bows, fletching, broadheads, muzzleloaders, UTVs and a lot of fishing equipment are all sporting pink these days. More
