Don't go lightly into grizzly country
Great Falls Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It is unfortunate that hunters have killed eight grizzly bears in the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem this hunting season. Three of those have been on the Rocky Mountain Front. Beyond educating hunters, there isn't much more to be done about it. We live in a wonderfully wild part of the world — a place where grizzly bears not only roam free but also where they are expanding their numbers and territory. And, grizzly bear habitat is elk habitat, deer habitat, wild sheep habitat and upland game bird habitat. So we hunt there. More

Turkey calling champ, Hunter Wallis
The Scranton Times Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hunter Wallis has had no trouble living up to his name. Just 14 years old, the Newton Lake, Pa., resident already is a highly accomplished sportsman. He hunts deer, waterfowl and wild turkey. In regard to the latter, he's bagged all four subspecies - Osceola in Florida, Rio Grande in Texas, Merriam in Wyoming and Eastern in Northeast Pennsylvania. His bow skills are formidable, no doubt. But there's another reason he's so good - he's got a call like no other. More

Grizzlies claim hunter's elk; trail in Montana closed
Billings Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A hunter's afternoon elk kill quickly attracted grizzly bears foraging nearby northwest of Gardiner, Mont., prompting the hunter to retreat and the Forest Service to close the area. The trail closure is the second in recent weeks around Montana. Lewis and Clark National Forest officials recently closed a two-mile section of trail southwest of East Glacier Park after a hunter was bitten by a grizzly sow with cubs when he hiked in with a partner to retrieve an elk he had shot. The bear was shot and killed by the hunters. More

Sheep station scrutinized
Billings Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Federal and state agencies, sportsmen groups and environmentalists are calling for an end to sheep grazing on a federal research ranch in the Centennial Mountains, saying the decades-long practice is coming at the expense of grizzly bears and other wildlife. The land, on the Montana-Idaho border south of Dillon, is part of the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station, which was established in 1926 to conduct research on sheep breeds, grazing and rangeland health.

What's happening to antlers?
Bennington Banner    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With deer season in full swing, here's something to ponder: Will Vermont's antler-restriction law (the ban on shooting spikehorns), which was designed to promote larger bucks with bigger antlers, someday lead to smaller bucks with smaller antlers? Some scientific evidence suggests that this might be the case. More
