Texas deer legislation lacks scientific merit
Ammo Land
One of the state's strongest and most respected voices for Texas hunters, the Texas Trophy Hunters Association questions the merits of two bills currently proposed in the Texas Legislature. The two bills — HB 2433 and SB 1412 — would enact new deer management regulations that could be harmful to deer and reduce hunting opportunities throughout the state.

Wi-Fi rifle lets amateurs hit targets from 1 kilometer away
Wired
A Texas company has begun shipping a rifle equipped with "fighter jet-style lock-and-launch technology" that allows amateurs to hit targets up to one kilometer away, every time. Any potential threats posed by Cody Wilson's 3-D printed gun pale in comparison to TrackingPoint's Precision-Guided Firearm, a series of three firearms that offer tracking ranges of 1,100 meters, 915 meters and 777 meters. "Even a novice shooter can become an elite long-range marksman in minutes, accurately and effectively engaging targets," boasts the company press release.

Reid: Gun control advocates will 'settle' for certain restrictions
CBS News
Following failed efforts to expand background checks for gun purchases, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that advocates for stricter gun laws will "settle" for rules restricting the mentally ill and criminals from purchasing guns. "Someone who has extreme mental problems, they shouldn't be able to buy a gun," Reid said on the Senate floor. "Someone who's a criminal shouldn't be able to buy a gun. That's all we want. We'll settle for that. The people of Sandy Hook will settle for that."

Antler art — Senior project incorporates hunting
Lone Star Outdoor News
Combining the love of hunting and a high school art project might be unusual, but not for Mimi Sams, a senior at Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas. The Art Studio class project required creating a collection of art with a theme, so a hunting theme seemed suitable for the daughter of Lone Star Outdoor News founder David J. Sams. "I wanted it to be something that reflected my life, and to do something different from paintings or clay sculptures," Mimi said. "And I wanted something that related to my lifestyle and hunting experiences."

Drought gobbles up Texas turkey hunt
The Daily Climate
Turkey hunting in Texas dried up along with the state's water due to the epic drought of 2011. And while the drought has relented, turkey season hasn't been the same. Turkey season closed recently in the state, and wildlife officials expect this year will continue a trend the state has seen since 2010, with hunters killing the fewest birds in decades. Turkeys don't mate when stressed by drought, making them hard to find and triggering a ripple effect that plays out over the next few hunting seasons.

African safari preparation: Asking the right questions
By John McAdams
While the majority of outfitters are honest brokers, hunting with a dishonest or unethical outfitter can make for an expensive and exasperating safari. More than a few hunters have had their entire experience completely ruined by hunting with a bad outfitter. However, asking the right questions before you book will greatly assist in identifying an unscrupulous outfitter and make for an even more enjoyable experience with an honest outfitter.

New government report undercuts Obama anti-gun agenda
NRA-ILA
Adding to the bad news for the Obama agenda, a report issued by the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows that firearm homicides in general, and violence at schools, have decreased substantially during the last two decades; the percentage of homicides committed with firearms has decreased; and only a tiny percentage of state prison inmates imprisoned for gun offenses obtain their guns from gun shows. As the Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin characterizes it, the report is "wonderful news for the country and rotten data for anti-gun advocates."
