Back to basics hunting: Late-season birds and dogs
Outdoor Life
With the final weeks of upland-bird and waterfowl seasons upon us, wild birds are as skittish as ever. They've been pursued, cornered, decoyed and called to by hunters from the Canadian prairies to the Gulf Coast. They've heard it all, seen it all — good callers, bad callers, good dog work to bad dog work. And they've survived it all. To bag birds during these final days, you have to be perfect. Your dog has to be perfect. If he's not, those birds will take advantage of his (and your) missteps — and you'll watch as they flush wild and out of range or never circle down into range over your spread.

DIY taxidermy sees sales of mouse stuffing kits soar and classes sell out
The Daily Mail
They say those who are bored of London are bored of life. But the latest craze to sweep the capital proves that even the most obscure tastes are catered for. Taxidermy or stuffing and posing dead animals, has become an unlikely favorite of the capital's trendiest residents. But you won't find retro stag's heads or large bears in the apartments of Dalston and Hoxton. Instead, taxidermy 2.0 is all about rodents.

Hunting in poor conditions
By John McAdams
Most hunters are familiar with the ideal conditions for hunting big game with respect to the rut, wind speed and direction, the phase of the moon, and ambient temperatures. However, like many other hunters out there, I have to hunt when I have time off from work, and that does not always mean I'll be deer hunting under ideal circumstances. This does not mean you can't be successful. However, it may mean you have to change your hunting methods to fit prevailing conditions.

Game wardens getting some well-deserved recognition
Outdoor Hub
After many years of invisibility, game wardens, "the Thin Green Line," are getting recognition thanks to several reality TV series including "North Woods Law," "Wardens" and "Wild Justice," as well as a number of popular fiction and non-fiction books. Awareness of wardens also jumped this past spring by news coverage of the crucial role the wardens played in the pursuit of Chris Dorner.

Shooting tips: 8 keys to hit more coyotes
Outdoor Life
Coyotes can be one of the toughest challenges for a rifleman. They are relatively small targets, they're constantly on the move, and their keen eyesight usually keeps them at a long range from the gun.

Hunting the alpine tops — a summer hunting tale
Nelson Mail
Zane Mirfin, an outdoor columnist writes: "Tony Fyfe, now of Noosa, but a veteran of the Asian business world, has been on many fishing trips with me over the years, but we'd never attempted an overnight hunting trip before. Being a couple of old fellas on the wrong side of our mid-40s, flying in by helicopter was the way to go, avoiding big hikes with heavy loads, and maximising hunting time in the bingo-zone."

How to haul out a moose with 2 trucks and a cable
Outdoor Life
Alex Robinson, a writer for Outdoor Life, writes: "Probably the most logical reason for shooting a moose is for the meat. Moose meat is some of the richest, most tender, most delicious venison in the woods. I was recently on a trip in Alberta hunting with the T/C Dimension rifle and Rugged Outfitting, and while moose populations around North America are in flux, the area we were in (between Calgary and Edmonton) was chock-full of them. They were in farm fields and frozen muskeg swamps, in the ditches along the roads, and in the expansive logging cuts. In a week of hunting I saw more than 75 moose. Our group piled up the venison quickly."
