With election over, Obama reopens talks on UN Firearms Treaty
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With the presidential election behind him, President Barack Obama has signaled he is ready to restart U.N. talks on the Arms Trade Treaty. These negotiations carried on through the summer, until they abruptly ended July 28 with a U.S. pullout. I wrote then that although the treaty was dead for a time, it could come back up if Obama were to be re-elected. And now, just two days after winning the election, he's back at it. More

Fish and Game seeks info on bighorn sightings
The Times-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game wants information on any sightings of bighorn sheep in or near the South Hills. Recently, bighorn sheep were observed moving south from their usual range, Fish and Game said. These movements are likely due to this summer's Minidoka Complex fires, which burned more than 90,000 acres and started near Big Cottonwood Creek, where the bighorn sheep typically live.

Like anything we spend money on, the more research you do ahead of time, the better chance you have of choosing a good outfitter. According to Doug Benefield from Illinois Connection, a whitetail outfitter in Illinois, you can weed out a large number of outfitters by asking the right questions. More

Mountain goat hunting in the Chugach, Alaska
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Tyler Freel, writes: "I don't know if I would say I take pride in it, but I always do my best to be prepared for any challenges a remote hunt might present. I usually do pretty well, but my goat hunt this year gave me a big reality check. Just five days after returning from my sheep hunt, as I was packing my goat gear in my truck to head down to the Chugach Range, my Uncle Tracy called and asked if I was taking crampons. I didn't have any, so he said to come pick up an old pair of his that he's ended up needing them for every goat hunt he's ever been on. I was sure glad I did. Due to weather, the pilots who were flying my buddy Steve and I into the mountains weren't able to take us into the drainage we'd hoped to be dropped off in and instead had to land us on a glacier."

Desert bighorn sheep get lift as part of journey from Nev. to southern Utah monument
The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The helicopter hovered low, allowing a crew member to shoot a net over a desert bighorn sheep in the southeastern Nevada mountains. A "mugger" hurriedly jumped from the aircraft and ran over to the sheep, giving the animal a shot to calm it down before tying its legs with leather strapping, blindfolding it, putting it in a sack, and hoisting it into the air with three other sheep. With that, the iconic big game animals started their journey to historic rangeland in southern Utah's Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The sheep dangled in the air for a matter of minutes before being carried to a table to get their vitals checked and then hauled in trailers to their new home — a roughly seven-hour trip. More
