In 2011, gun owners in the United States outnumbered hunters by 5-to-1. There were 13.7 million hunters in the United States over age 16 — 12.7 million of whom used rifles, shotguns or handguns for hunting, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. That means hunters constituted only 15.9 to 18.1 percent of the estimated 70-80 million gun owners in the U.S. in 2011 — the latest year for which statistics are available. More

Senators Lisa Murkowski, R-Ark. and Joe Manchin, D-W.V., introduced S.170, which would "recognize the heritage of recreational fishing, hunting and recreational shooting on federal public land and ensure continued opportunities for those activities." The bill was referred to the Committee on Energy & Natural Resources. More

Sandhill cranes, and hunters, keep flocking to Texas Panhandle
Ft. Worth Star Telegram    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An hour before daybreak one morning in Knox County, Texas, 10 hunters methodically erected two A-frame hunting blinds near the corner of a rain-starved wheat field, hoping to bag a few of the magnificent sandhill cranes that winter annually in the farm community's wheat, peanut and cotton fields. Forty-two sandhill cranes already were on the ground 25 to 35 yards in front of the blinds, some standing with beaks touching the sparse blades of green wheat plants, others preening the feathers on their backs and still others standing at attention or with their heads pointing to the skies as if pleading to those flying overhead to join them.

Lawmakers need to attack cause of gun violence
Your Houston News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Glen Dodson, a contributing writer, says: "There has been a lot written in the recent weeks regarding guns and gun laws, etc. I decided it was my turn to put in my two cents worth. When I was 10 years old, my dad began teaching me how to shoot a .22 caliber rifle. At age 12, he gave me a .410 gauge shotgun for Christmas. We were taught to respect guns. We were taught to respect life. We were taught to only shoot animals or birds for food and not for fun. We were taught to respect people and people's property. We were taught to respect the family name and not do anything to dishonor it. Most of all we were taught to respect our parents and respect and fear God." More

Do whitetails migrate? Washington study aims to pattern deer movement
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As whitetail deer continue to expand their range in the West, a study out of Washington state is looking to figure out how far they travel, where they go and where they come from. The study is being conducted by the state fish and wildlife department and last year researchers fitted 35 bucks, does and fawns with locating transmitters. Another 35 deer were trapped and tagged this year. In the East and Midwest, rule of thumb says that whitetails have a home range of a few thousand acres. But, researchers in Washington are finding that whitetails will migrate miles from summer to winter habitat. More

Gun control: Founding Fathers vs. today's lawmakers
Real Clear Politics    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Within hours of the Jan. 8, 2011, mass shooting in Tucson, Ariz., that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the local sheriff blamed the state's lenient gun laws. "I have never been a proponent of letting everybody in the state carry weapons under any circumstances that they want — and that's almost where we are," complained Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik. "I think we're the Tombstone of the United States of America." Dupnik would prove to have a knack for intemperate remarks, and this one was historically inaccurate, but the frustration of law enforcement officials in the urban areas of his state was genuine.

How to plan a hunting trip to Africa
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
No longer just a dream, Africa can be a wide-awake experience of a lifetime for North American hunters—far less expensive than a brown bear hunt in Alaska or a trophy-bull chase on an Indian reservation. But as a longtime visitor to Africa and as an occasional Professional Hunter there, I’ve seen plenty of first-time Americans who didn't plan adequately. Here are some lessons from their experiences.
