Record pronghorn certified by Boone and Crockett
WSF
The largest pronghorn ever recorded has been certified by Boone and Crockett Club as a new World's Record. The huge buck, hunted in Socorro County, New Mexico, in 2013, scores 96-4/8 B&C points. The new record breaks a tie between two specimens from Arizona. One was taken in Coconino County in 2000, the other in Mohave County in 2002. Both scored 95 B&C points. Club officials say the difference between these old records and the new — a full inch-and-a-half — is an extraordinary jump. In fact, the margin between the now No. 1- and No. 2-ranked trophies is the largest in Boone and Crockett pronghorn records, which contain more than 3,400 entries.

50 years later: Why the Wilderness Act still matters, now more than ever
Rapid City Journal
The westward march of American progress transformed a once wild land mass into an industrialized and increasingly natureless place. During its founding and growth, the nation's appetite for discovery pushed explorers and settlers through forests, over mountains and onto prairies and plains. As the period of exploration and settlement closed, a backlash coalesced into the conservation movement. Fifty years ago, in 1964, the movement achieved what some consider its signature accomplishment: the passage into law of the national Wilderness Act, with its directive to preserve areas of land "untrammeled by man."

Pros and cons of the wadcutter bullet
By John McAdams
This article discusses a relatively uncommon bullet type: the wadcutter. A wadcutter has a flat front and is typically cylindrical in shape. Additionally, the bullet is usually all lead and has no jacket. Though the wadcutter is not extremely rare, it is still a relatively specialized bullet type that is only utilized in a few different cartridges. Like most highly specialized bullets, the wadcutter is great at the job it was designed for: competitive shooting. However, it struggles in applications outside of its primary use.

Do you really need a stabilizer on your hunting bow?
Outdoor Life
If you are a walkabout bowhunter who keeps shots inside 40 yards, you might not need a stabilizer, and certainly not a long or heavy one. This is a surprising conclusion, especially since the archery industry insists that a stabilizer is an essential part of any hunting bow. But a study indicates that unless you shoot in a heavy crosswind, prefer an ultra-light bow or stretch your shots out beyond 40 yards, this is an optional accessory.
