Why do we hunt?
San Marcos Daily Record    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Jim Darnell, a Daily Record columnist, writes: "I was recently pondering the question, 'Why do I hunt?' Why am I still so pumped about getting up at 4 a.m., enduring the frigid temperatures, trudging through mud and waiting endless hours for my prey to show? Maybe when you're a young hunter, but at 71? The answer is not found in putting food on the table. In the past we were all hunters. Subsistence hunters. We hunted so that we could eat. Today we don't have to hunt to eat, although I enjoy very much the wild game that I harvest." More

The Jackson Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If 2012 was the year of bow-and-arrow-wielding heroines, Joella Bates hopes 2013 is the year when more women are seen perfecting their archery skills.

Bates, 51, is a five-time world championship archer. She was a Madison County, Miss., Wildlife Resources Officer in the mid-1980s and lived in Jackson for almost two years. Her biggest passion is promoting the outdoor lifestyle to women and children. More

President Barack Obama will unveil his gun-control priorities, alongside a group of children that will evoke the 20 dead children killed in the Newtown, Conn., massacre.

The New York Assembly, where Democrats who have been strongly supportive of gun control have an overwhelming majority, planned to vote on the measure. More

Cars and trucks on a central Georgia highway could one day pass over black bears as the animals scamper under the roadway, avoiding the traffic that's often deadly to wildlife. Georgia plans to add a half-dozen bear tunnels beneath State Route 96 in what will be a first-of-its-kind project for the state. Preliminary plans have already been completed and the state is now purchasing land along the highway, said Jeremy Busby, a project manager for the Georgia Department of Transportation. More
