Supreme Court to Hear McDonald v. Chicago
from the NRA-ILA
The Supreme Court has made the decision to hear the landmark Second Amendment case of McDonald v. Chicago. The case will address the application of the Second Amendment to the states through either the Due Process clause or the Privileges or Immunities clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The case has major implications for the legality of restrictive gun laws not only in Chicago, but also in other cities across the United States. The decision to hear the case, which will be argued later this year or early next year, gives Second Amendment advocates across America hope that this fundamental freedom will not be infringed by unreasonable state and local laws.

Federal Duck Stamp Issue Ruffling Some Texas Hunters
from The Austin-American Statesman
After a pilot program in 2008, the federal government decided to allow states to sell a federal stamp endorsement this year. The federal stamp still must be affixed to the hunter's license, signed across the front and available for inspection by federal and state wardens. The problem with that is if the stamp doesn't arrive, or it gets thrown away or lost or stuck on his kid's lunch box, the hunter will be considered in violation of the law and subject to a ticket and a fine, $200 at the federal level.  More

There are hunters who go a lifetime dreaming of that big kill. Then there's Simon Hughes, who helped nab a beast of an animal on an East Texas hunt -- while still in the first grade.

The decision, which reiterates a June ruling, was made by the Free State High Court in Bloemfontein, South Africa, the Department of Environmental Affairs said.  More

Reports from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department field biologists indicate above average mast crop production and an early acorn drop. Recent rains across much of the state have also helped generate forb production, adding to the availability of native food sources for deer.  More
