Whitetail deer skull yields a surprise
Bonners Ferry Herald
After picking up his white-tailed deer skull from the taxidermist this fall, Kody Atkins found out the deer had an uncommon feature — upper canine teeth. The small teeth were located halfway between the molars and the front end of the upper jaw, one on each side. Upper canine teeth are found in male and female elk and are known as ivories, whistlers, buglers, eye teeth or dog teeth. Upper canine teeth in deer are uncommon and even could be considered on the borderline of rare.

Chelmsford taxidermist about more than just stuffing
Wicked Local
For Douglas Perry of Chelmsford, Mass., taxidermy is more than mummifying animals. The true art lies beyond what the eye can see, a meticulous process demanding great knowledge, patience and appreciation for all creatures. The skilled outdoorsman is known locally for his dedication, knowledge and respect for the sport of hunting, the art of taxidermy and, above all, surrounding nature. With more than 50 years of taxidermy under his belt, Perry, 65 and retired, can still be found observing, conserving and preserving area wildlife.

OutdoorHub
Tom McHale, for OutdoorHub writes: "The first step towards healing is to admit you have a problem. I've got an ammunition reloading addiction. I can spend hours fantasizing about all the cool gadgets like case concentricity gauges in the Sinclair Reloading catalog. There. I've said it.

First we'll look at factors you should consider when deciding whether to reload or not."

Missouri deer hunting reaches crossroads
Daily Journal
Missouri deer hunters remember days when they could pick and choose the deer they wanted to shoot. Now, they're lucky just to see deer. Any deer, let alone a big buck. A severe outbreak of hemorrhagic disease during the summer of 2012 hit hard — harder than even the Missouri Department of Conservation first thought. That, combined with the long-term effects of liberalized hunting regulations that allow hunters to take unlimited does in many counties, several years of drought and reduced habitat, has hunters worried.
