Hidden Impacts
from the Dallas Morning News
It could be months before Hurricane Ike's full impact is realized, but fisheries biologists don't believe the huge storm harmed saltwater fish. Fisherman access and infrastructure are other matters entirely. "The wildlife impact to everything that doesn't fly will be significant," said Jim Sutherlin, area manager of J.D. Murphree Wildlife Management Area near Port Arthur, Texas. He was particularly concerned about reptiles and amphibians. The marshes along the upper coast, from Freeport to the Louisiana border, contain the state's highest concentration of alligators. More

Top 5 Ways to Observe National Hunting and Fishing Day
from the National Shooting Sports Foundation
One of the great annual traditions in the outdoors, National Hunting and Fishing Day, is set for this Saturday, Sept. 27. For the past 37 years, the day has served as a public reminder that hunters and anglers are America's premier conservation supporters. Through licenses and excise taxes, they now generate $100,000 every 30 minutes for fish, wildlife and habitat programs -- benefiting all citizens who appreciate wild things and wild places. More

Hunters' Payback to Nature
from the Waco Tribune
Trapping, hunting and fishing are integral to America culture, teamed as they are with our essential conservation responsibility. Once necessary to survive, hunting and fishing now are two very popular forms of recreation, while keeping millions of American families connected to the land and its precious creatures. Today roughly 20 million hunters and more than 50 million fishermen enjoy the outdoors and generate roughly $70 billion in revenue each year. More

from Field & Stream
Neither Barack Obama nor John McCain are diehard hunters or fishermen, but both claim to be the better man for issues that matter to sportsmen.

Their answers may surprise you. More

Three Generations of Tucson Family Gun for Javelina
from The Associated Press via the Tucson Citizen
The family that hunts together eats javelina stew together. Such is the case for the Heffelfingers, who often boast three generations of hunters out on the field. It helps that dad Jim Heffelfinger, 43, is a regional game specialist for the Arizona Game & Fish Department. He is regularly joined by his father, Bob Heffelfinger, 75, and his son, Levi Heffelfinger, 16, on a hill in the wild "glassing" for javelina. More

Woman Brings Down Huge 553-Pound Bear on First Hunt
from WEAU-TV
A Wisconsin woman had quite a night during her first year of bear hunting, bringing down a massive black bear. Racheal Gifford shot the 553.4 pound black bear Sept. 12 near Cameron, Wis. Gifford says she and her husband have been baiting the bear and watching him on a trail cam for a few weeks. The bear which they nicknamed 'Marmaduke' finally came in close last week and Gifford made the shot from 15 yards. An official scorer from Boone and Crockett will come and measure the bear to see just where he ranks, but Gifford says she believes Marmaduke will put her in the top 10 in state history. More

FKNK Reacts to Call to Close Malta Hunting Season
from the Times of Malta
The hunters' federation (FKNK) said this evening that it condemned all illegal hunting and would never stand by anyone who performed such acts, but closing the hunting season because of abuse would amount to unjustified collective punishment. The federation was reacting to a call by the German-based committee CABS which yesterday called for the hunting season to be closed after its activists in Malta said "hundreds" of birds of prey were shot down on Saturday morning. The FKNK said no solid evidence of this had been produced. More

from The Associated Press
Federal wildlife officials have asked a judge to put gray wolves in the Northern Rockies back on the endangered species list a sharp reversal from the government's prior contention that the animals were thriving. Attorneys for the Fish and Wildlife Service asked U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy in Missoula to vacate the agency's February finding that more than 1,400 wolves in the region no longer needed federal protection.
