Cleaning up bighorn habitat
The Durango Herald
When telephones made the galvanized-steel telegraph line between Durango and Silverton, Colorado, superfluous, the latter fell into disuse, but it didn't go away. As the poles fell, the wire ended up on the ground or draped across whatever was nearby, including cliff faces north of Rockwood, becoming a snare for bighorn sheep, historic residents of the canyon. When bighorn become entangled in the 3/16-inch line and can't free themselves, it's not a pretty end.

FWS triples population goal for Mexican wolves, draws fire from enviros
E&E Publishing
Under a controversial plan that would give Mexican wolves more room to roam but make it easier for people to kill them, the Fish and Wildlife Service tripled the population target for the experimental recovery effort and took steps to protect herds of elk and other large animals from the predators. FWS is seeking to increase the number of Mexican wolves in southern Arizona and New Mexico from about 83 to between 300 and 325 — up from 100 wild wolves called for in a 1982 recovery plan.

5 things only Michigan hunters know
OutdoorHub
Hunters know a lot of stuff. Hunters in the Great Lake State know even more and a lot of what they know has to do with traditions. Hunting is a sport steeped in tradition, and just about every part of hunting season has some tradition involved with it — whether it's deer camp, a lucky jacket or anything else. And we all know where we hunt — hunting spots don't have specific names — it's Bob's Ridge or The Hill. There are a few other things all Michigan hunters know, too.
