Ranchers cheered by lifting of wolf protections
The Associated Press via The Times and Democrat    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ranchers in Western states said they're hopeful the removal of gray wolves from the federal endangered species list will make it easier to hunt the predators and stem losses of cattle and sheep. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service formally lifted federal protections for more than 1,300 wolves in Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Utah. That will allow hunting of the carnivores that ranchers say have taken a steady toll on their livestock over the past two decades. More

What makes a trophy whitetail buck a trophy? Is it the experience, the hours of scouting, practicing and time spent in the stand? Is it the memory of your first buck — that 37-inch 4-pointer that still sits proudly on display in your home? Is it the tall-tined, perfect 10-pointer or that massive heavy-horned eight? More

Arizona ranchers shoot mountain lion
Eastern Arizona Courier    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Mountain lions are synonymous with Arizona and are found throughout the state — from the snowy mountains in the north to the deserts in the south. They are top predators whose food preference is deer, elk, javelina, bighorn sheep and livestock. It is the last food preference that usually gets the big cats in trouble with ranchers and necessitates their removal. More

Wild elk back in Missouri    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Elk captured in Kentucky have now been relocated to Missouri. The elk spent three months in isolation to make sure they were strong and healthy before transportation. Missouri has not had wild elk in their state in more than a century and a half. The new herd consists of 28 cows and fawns and six bulls and were soft-released into their new home, 23,000 acres at Peck Ranch Conservation Area. Soft-release is the method by which the pen gates are opened at night so that the elk can "escape" at their own time and on their own terms. More

The trip brought back memories of shooting the critters with his single-action .22-caliber pistol, then bringing them back home to cook on the spit. More
