Sheep wars part I
Outdoor Life    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Steve and his brother were busy setting up their base camp after flying into the Brooks Range in northern Alaska to hunt Dall sheep. They were pumped. Months of preparation had brought them to this spot. As they sorted their gear for the arduous task ahead, they weren't too surprised to see a large fellow coming over from a guide's base camp, which had been set up at the airstrip. People are usually few and far between in that country, so cordial visits are normal when running into others. The tone of the situation quickly changed, however, when the guide started talking. "You guys need to stay out of this canyon. There's some rams up there that we're saving for clients," he said, pointing back toward a drainage to the west. More

The Denver Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
A Colorado State House committee will consider a bill that would repeal the 19-year ban on black bear hunting in the spring. House Bill 1294, sponsored by Rep. J. Paul Brown, R-Ignacio, is drawing criticism from animal rights advocates who say that black bear cubs would be orphaned and likely starve to death. The bill would repeal one part of Measure 10, a 1992 statewide ballot measure that banned spring bear hunting. About 70 percent of voters favored the measure. More

Benelli MR1 review: An Italian coyote rifle    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We live in a global economy. Al Voth's television was made in China, his new camo jacket in the Philippines, his truck was designed in Japan but built in Tennessee and now he has a coyote rifle from Italy. Of course, Italian firearms aren't anything new, some of the finest guns made originate from the land that gave us spaghetti. The U.S. Marine's combat shotgun for more than a decade has been the semi-auto Benelli M4 (military name - M1014). Its reputation has been built on their ultra-reliable ARGO (Auto Regulating Gas Operated) system. That same gas system has now been adapted into a semi-auto rifle in 223 Remington and Voth has been successfully hunting coyotes with one. For this review, he will take a look at the Benelli MR1 rifle. More
