US considers lifting hunting ban on grey wolves imported from Canada
Toronto Stars
It was a successful experiment in recovering an endangered species — too successful for some — and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now ponders lifting protections for transplanted Canadian grey wolves across the United States. Almost two decades ago, the wolves were relocated to Yellowstone National Park in an effort to return them to where the animals had been hunted to extinction.

$2 million wolf control proposed by Otter
Idaho Falls Post Register
State Sen. Jeff Siddoway may have been the happiest man in the Idaho House recently as Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter rolled out a proposal for $2 million in startup funds to control Idaho's wolf population. Controlling that population doesn't hit as close to home for many legislators as it does for the longtime Terreton Republican and sheep rancher.

Coyote calling made easy
Outdoorhub
There is an axiom spoken of by coyote trappers and hunters, "Find the food and you'll find the coyotes." This seems to hold true no matter where one is pursuing coyotes in North America. Duane Fronek from Wisconsin finds the areas the deer are wintering and uses that as a starting point. "I look for areas that hold deer like clear cuts that border swamps or setting up on rivers that are frozen over that go by swamps and tag alders," he said. "Deer hang in these areas and coyotes frequently cruise the rivers checking those areas out."

Where have all the whitetails gone?
Outdoor Life
There was an audible buzz at the recently concluded industry shows. In fact, it was more like a roar. The hottest topic wasn't the best bow or newest camo pattern, the buzz was all about whitetails or the lack thereof. It seems as if many industry veterans and influencers who make their living by selling whitetail deer-related products are seeing a precipitous decline in deer population numbers in various parts of the country and no one is happy about it. Keep in mind that the hunting industry is driven by whitetail deer (70 percent of hunters hunt whitetails) and declining deer numbers are a real threat to the industry.

Introducing new hunters to the sport
By John McAdams
Training new hunters is an important task and one that all hunters should take seriously. Expanding our ranks by introducing family members and friends to hunting not only provides us an opportunity to enjoy something that we love with those who are important to us, but also helps to secure the future of the sport. More hunters means more money spent on licenses and hunting equipment, which means more money directed towards conservation efforts. Unfortunately, becoming a new hunter is not always an easy task.

US hunters set new record-low harvest rate of yearling bucks
Ammo Land
More 1 1/2-year-old bucks (yearlings) are getting a pass from deer hunters than at any time in modern history, according to data gathered by QDMA for its 2014 Whitetail Report, now available free online. In the 2012-2013 season, the most recent season with complete deer harvest data available from all states, only 37 percent of antlered bucks killed by hunters in the United States were yearlings, down from more than 62 percent in 1988, the year QDMA was founded. Antlered bucks do not include “button bucks,” so this means that nearly two-thirds of antlered bucks killed by hunters in 2012-2013 were 2 1/2 years or older.
