No one hunts with an 'assault weapon' or do they?
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dan Roberts: "With fall a mere few weeks away and with it the start of the traditional hunting season Nationwide, I thought it would be timely to discuss another in the endless list of lies foisted on a largely ignorant public and intentionally myopic media by Gun Control Advocates, their supporters and Politicians. That being the trite and well-worn buzz phrases that 'no one hunts with an assault rifle' or 'assault rifles' are not used for hunting or other similar, slightly altered, but massively imbecilic and obtuse comments."

Bump and Grind bill goes to governor
Palm Desert Patch    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A California state legislature bill to reopen the upper portion of the Bump and Grind trail to hikers now sits on Governor Brown's desk. The legislation, co-authored by local Assemblyman Brian Nestande, R-Palm Desert, overturns the Department of Fish & Game decision to close access to the upper portion of the trail to hikers. DFG officials closed off the trail with a gate in June 2011, and threatened to ticket or possibly arrest hikers who bypass the gate. More

Casper Star Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Graceful and majestic, elk are one of Wyoming's icons. Large herds draw hunters, photographers and viewers from around the globe hoping to catch a glimpse of a bull's huge rack and hear its roaring bugle. But in many areas of the state, those herds have simply grown too large, said Brian Nesvik, chief of the wildlife division for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Game and fish officials have tried recently to encourage hunting in the larger herds, even offering special elk hunts on private lands monitored by biologists. Department officials are going one step further this hunting season. Hunters can now buy three elk licenses in some areas. More

Trail cameras: New high-tech features to help you scout deer
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Trail cameras have come a long way since the 1880s, when George Shiras III attached trip wires to bulky cameras to photograph wildlife in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Shiras even captured night images with magnesium-powered illumination, which scared the bejeebers out of animals when the flash went off. Instead of trip wires, today's cameras use passive infrared sensors with multiple detection zones to measure changes in infrared energy (or heat emitted by warm-blooded animals). As animals move in front of the camera, they cross from one zone to another, enabling the Fresnel lens (the black or dark gray window on the face on the unit) to detect movement and trigger the shutter.

Avalanche Creek mine inches toward operation
The Aspen Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The latest decision in a convoluted series of rulings and appeals regarding operation of an alabaster and marble mine in the Crystal River Valley, Colo., may pave the way for mining activity sooner rather than later. Brian Ferebee, deputy regional forester for resources with the U.S. Forest Service, has declined to exercise discretionary review of a prior decision that, in essence, rejected limitations on wintertime operations at the White Banks Mine in order to protect bighorn sheep.
