Wyoming lawmakers to decide on silencers for hunting rifles
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the woods and on the plains of Wyoming, one traditional hunting sound may soon be headed toward extinction: gunshots. State lawmakers are set to decide whether to allow silencers on hunting guns, a move that has divided the outdoor-oriented state. Proponents say screwing a muzzle onto a firearm to catch the blast and muffle the report will prevent hearing damage and reduce noise pollution. Many opponents insist silencers for hunting weapons gives hunters in the woods an unsporting advantage with yet another high-tech gadget against game species whose defenses have always been only their alertness and ability to run away. An interim Wyoming legislative committee recently endorsed a bill to end the state's prohibition on hunting with silencers. More

Depending on where you live in the United States, deer hunting season is either wrapping up, starting or already in full swing. But no matter where you are in the season, observers say it's been a good year for the hunting industry. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, there was a 9 percent increase in the number of hunters last year compared with 2006. And if seen as an economic sector, those hunters have a significant financial impact. More

Taking a record book Colorado mule deer
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The timber where this giant was located was near the edge of the property, so a careless stalk or any other type of excess pressure could kick him off the land where we could hunt. That was his bedding area, though at first and last light he would sometimes come out in the open with his large harem of does to feed — mostly on a high, exposed knoll of sage. More

Outdoor hub    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The National Park Service will hold a public hearing on Dec. 12 on proposed changes to sport hunting regulations for Denali National Preserve. The proposed changes would prohibit taking brown bears over bait stations, using artificial light to take black bears at dens, taking black bear cubs and sows with cubs and would shorten the season for hunting wolves and coyotes. The proposed restrictions renew a previous temporary prohibition on taking black bears at dens and black bear cubs and sows with cubs. The restrictions also respond to recent changes to State of Alaska hunting regulations. More

Another 4 years and the assault has already begun

What's next? Those of us concerned about gun owner rights didn't have to wait long for that question to begin to be answered. First thing morning of Nov. 7 the United Nations, with U.S. encouragement, decided to reopen discussions on an international arms trade treaty. The treaty talks were derailed in July when the U.S. and several other countries requested more time to work on it. Many believed that move was politically motivated, with Obama not wanting a high-profile vote in favor of gun restrictions on his record just before the elections. New treaty talks are scheduled for late March. More
