A deer study that's underway in Utah has provided two things—better information about the number of adult deer that are surviving from year to year and a chance to manage cougars in a way that should benefit deer the most. Starting with the 2011–2012 cougar hunting season, biologists with the Division of Wildlife Resources would like to make the following changes. More

North Texas eNews    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
To be a great teacher, one must not only possess knowledge but also the personality and skills necessary to impart said knowledge to the student. Josh (Jay) Ruby, owner of North Texas Rifle Precision, is a veteran competition long distance rifle shooter and ballistics and reloading expert. He definitely knows how use his rifles to shoot tight little groups at very long ranges (up to one mile), but he also has the people skills to communicate what he knows to his students. More

Pitkin County, Colo., feds differ on roadless protections
The Aspen Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Pitkin County, Colo., commissioners found themselves in the odd position of differing with the U.S. Forest Service on what level of protection is appropriate for roadless areas within Colorado's national forests. The county, preparing to comment on the proposed 2011 Colorado Roadless Rule by the upcoming deadline, drafted a letter endorsing the so-called alternative 4 — an option that puts 2.6 million acres of Colorado's roadless forest lands in an "upper tier" that provides higher levels of protection than did a federal roadless rule adopted in 2001.

Gun-control support often politically risky
Arizona Republic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Historically, Arizona politicians who take the lead on gun-control issues risk political blowback from their constituents. After U.S. Sen. Dennis DeConcini, D-Ariz., emerged as a national champion for the assault-weapons ban, he was targeted by a recall campaign in 1989. U.S. Sen. John McCain's work with U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, then a Democrat, on an unsuccessful bill to regulate gun shows was cited as a motivating factor in a 2001 recall effort against the Arizona Republican. Neither recall proved successful. More
