'Chadwick Ram' marks 75th anniversary
Cody Enterprise    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Even a quick look at the "Chadwick Ram" leaves a lasting impression. The ram's Boone & Crocket score - 196 6/8 inches - makes it the standing all-time record for a Stone's sheep. But the symmetry and perfect curling of the horns is unprecedented, said Warren Newman. "It is considered the most perfect big game trophy of any species," he said. Newman is curator of the Cody Firearms Museum of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, where the trophy is housed. More

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service moved forward with a proposal to remove Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in Wyoming.

Ever find those mule deer?
The River Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Scott Hancock was born of outdoorsmen and women. "Out There" is in his blood, the blood of hunters, gatherers and survivors of the millennia. The cackle of a rooster pheasant, an elk bugling or a flock of Sandhill cranes preannounced by their raspy calling, are sounds from another epoch, unchanged, stirring our quiet places to life. More

Hunters want to be heard in study
Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Central Wisconsin deer hunters frustrated by the state's management of the whitetail deer population in recent years say they are eager to see how a Texas expert nicknamed "Dr. Deer" plans to improve the state's deer herd. The Department of Administration hired James Kroll this week as the state's new "deer czar." Kroll was given a $125,000 contract to conduct an independent, objective and scientifically based review of Wisconsin's deer management practices. More

The Spectrum    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Keisha Puffer couldn't have been more proud the day she received her pronghorn mount. After all, the 17-year-old Utah resident and Beaver High School graduate didn't think she'd shoot anything during her first hunt. "My toes always curl up when I'm nervous, and they curled up tight," Keisha said in her Minersville, Utah, home, holding the mount that family friend and Cedar City, Utah, taxidermist Destry Myers spent the last year perfecting.

A recent realization led Larysa Switlyk to take a two-month trip, on her own, to New Zealand. She jumped off cliffs on the Great Barrier Reef. She went skydiving. She swam in waters with 14-foot-long tiger sharks. And, most significantly, Switlyk learned how to hunt. "I had a natural talent for shooting," says Switlyk. "I found my passion." More

Starting 'hunting ranch' in California is complicated
The Sacramento Bee    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Question: I've been toying with the idea of opening a private hunting ranch in California and importing animals (mostly pigs) for the ranch. I'd like to research the licensing and regulations. Are there state and federal regulations? Since the animals will undoubtedly come from out of state, what other agencies (state or federal) would I need to consult? More

Used rifles: The best bargain of all
Field & Stream    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Once the correct social order is established, David E. Petzal explains that the best bargain is not a particular brand of rifle, but a used rifle, and particularly at this point in history. As we continue our descent from the First World to the Third, people are having to part with some very good guns. More
