It troubles Bernie Kuntz a great deal to come to grips with reality, but three-and-a-half years after getting his right hip replaced, and four months after a right knee replacement, He cannot envision ever again scrambling around in the bighorn sheep country of northwestern Wyoming — nor in the Colorado Rockies where he has applied for a permit since the mid-1990s.

Deer hunting rule travels south
The Detroit Free Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Faced with a choice between recommendations from its wildlife scientists on one hand and angry hunters on the other, the Natural Resources Commission opted to compromise on new deer hunting rules in the northeastern Michigan TB zone. Hunters will be allowed to use firearms tags to kill antlerless deer during the regular firearms and muzzleloader seasons, as Department of Natural Resources and Environment biologists recommended. However, they will not be restricted to a blanket three-point (on one side) rule for killing bucks, which the biologists also requested. More

Groups at odds hinder wildlife conservation efforts
The Arizona Republic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
State and federal agencies have spent more than $20 million over 30 years to restore the Mexican gray wolf to its native habitat in eastern Arizona, an effort now teetering toward failure as the dwindling wild population struggles to survive. What has happened has exposed troubling weaknesses in the wildlife conservation system. Politics, competing interests and drawn-out lawsuits hinder on-the-ground work to protect the species, while three groups that should work together - state regulators, the federal government and environmental organizations - are too often at odds.

Sometimes, it really is better to be lucky than good. Dr. Frank Lawrence, M.D., an ophthalmologist discovered the truth behind that adage first-hand on a deer hunt in northern Sonora, Mexico. "I had hunted before in the desert and it was just beautiful," Lawrence said. "This was in the mountains with the scrub oaks and a few (saguaro) cactus, but not a lot of the little cactus. It was really nice. It started snowing and I thought, 'Here I am in Mexico and it's snowing?' But we were in the mountains there and we got a good snow. We had to wait a while to get out, until they cleared the roads. It was really a nice trip." More
