Hunters, Texas left with a quail dilemma
Houston Chronicle    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As Texas' bobwhite quail population continues an ominous, decades-long slide that has seen numbers of the iconic upland game bird fall more than 75 percent statewide during the past 30 years and disappear from some areas of the state, wildlife managers, academic researchers, hunters and landowners are ramping up efforts to keep thorough documentation of the decline, identify factors contributing to the problem and learn how to slow down, stop or perhaps reverse the nosedive.

Linn County Leader    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The annual tradition that is the Bucklin Fox Hunt is reaching a very important milestone — 100 years. For a local family, the tradition of this hunt is not simply one of camaraderie and sport, but of a connection to generations of fox hunters. For Marty Herriman of Marceline, Mo., the Bucklin Fox Hunt is as much a part of his family as any of the myriad of activities we take for granted in our own lives. More

Weston, Mass., residents who are hoping to control the deer population are asking the town to consider bringing in bow hunters. The Conservation Commission wants to let the hunters go after deer on conservation land. They hope that would reduce the population and cases of Lyme disease.

Southampton, Va., board favors using rifles to hunt coyotes
The Tidewater News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A majority of the Southampton County Board of Supervisors favors allowing the use of higher-caliber rifles to hunt coyotes. "If the farmer needs to get rid of them, and if it takes a rifle, that's what they need to do," said Supervisor Chairman Dallas Jones, who represents the Drewryville District. "I don't have any problem with it." Southampton County is among six Virginia localities that do not allow hunting with rifles. Others are Isle of Wight, Goochland, New Kent and Prince William counties and Virginia Beach. More

Summer ocean salmon fishing could be memorable
The Seattle Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This summer's ocean salmon-fishing season could be a memorable one. Early signs indicate schools of chinook are now cruising off the coast of Washington state in fairly good numbers as the nontribal commercial troll fishery — which opened May 1 — has been catching fish when the weather allows them to get out of port.

Virginia not hog wild over pig population
WSLS-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The National Wildlife Federation has highlighted the importance of the feral swine issue, "calling for state and federal measures to remove feral swine, a highly destructive invasive species that is a growing menace to wildlife and wildlife habitat." That may not be possible in many states, said Bob Ellis, the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries' Deputy Director, Bureau of Wildlife Resources. But in Virginia there's still hope. The map of Virginia, where hogs, like coyotes, are considered a nuisance species, shows just a few pinpricks where feral populations exist. More

Michigan group stands guard over sturgeon
Detroit Free Press via Wisconsin State Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
At 6 feet and 100 pounds, the lake sturgeon held by Ed Baker, Kari Dammerman and Nathan Barton was about 80 years old. But instead of roaming the Great Lakes, it had been confined in Black Lake behind Alverno Dam its entire life. The dam was built on the Black River in 1903 during the electrification binge that followed Thomas Edison's invention of a practical electric light bulb. Fish could go downstream to Lake Huron and Lake Michigan by passing over the dam but couldn't come back up, limiting the gene pool to the small number in Black Lake. More
