This is what 4 decades of taxidermy collecting looks like
The Bold Italic
A piece of taxidermy on the wall can be one of the most visually arresting ways to add character to a room; whereas 350 pieces can actually stop your guests at the door, mouth agape and eyebrows at their hairline. And here, in the doorway of Skip and Ricardo's olive green house in San Francisco's Portola neighborhood, we were expecting it. But one can only imagine the reaction of some unprepared Comcast service guy happening upon this exclamation point of a house on a routine Tuesday.

Mauser M12: A new path for one of the world's oldest gunmakers
Outdoor Life
Mauser. Is there any other word in the gun world as iconic? Mauser is the wellspring from which all our bolt-action rifles are derived. Mausers — in their various iterations, along with the eponymous 7x57mm Mauser cartridge — ushered in the modern era of rifles. The name Mauser, like no other, also conveys a specific idea — many would argue it's the ideal — of what a sporting rifle should be.

SurfKY.com

Why do we miss?
Sports Afield
Craig Boddington, a contributor for Sports Afield, writes: "Over the years I have noticed that I am among the few gun/hunting journalists who admit to a missed shot. Fortunately it doesn't happen very often, so only occasionally do I have to 'fess up. Every time I do, I get the same comments, probably from the same people (or types of people). They usually start with criticism of me as a poor hunter and worse shot, and always end with the statement that this person has never, ever missed a shot."

Time to find a good taxidermist is before you bag a trophy
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
At each outdoor show, sportsmen will book trips costing hundreds or thousands of dollars. Then they'll go home and make travel arrangements, practice with their bow, put fresh line on their rods and take the stairs to get in shape. Only later, when the once-in-a-lifetime trophy they so eagerly sought is dead and in need of immediate attention, will they look for a taxidermist.

Supreme Court asked to clarify what it means to 'bear' arms
The Wall Street Journal
Lyle Denniston, writing for the Constitution Daily, reports about two gun rights cases that may get a hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court. Both cases, dealing with restrictions on the ability of minors to possess weapons in public, hinge on the difference between the right to "keep" a gun and a right "bear" one. The National Rifle Association thinks the issue is ripe for Supreme Court review. The justices are expected to discuss the cases and may decide whether to grant review.

The advantages of using a .45-70 cartridge
By John McAdams
While popular in certain circles, the .45-70 Government cartridge does not get a lot of attention these days. The .45-70 delivers bone-crushing power at close range, but is difficult to shoot accurately at longer ranges because its big, slow-moving bullets have a steep trajectory. While the .45-70 is relatively popular among black-powder silhouette shooters and among those who hunt big game in heavy cover, only a relatively small percentage of hunters utilize it.

Alabama hunters failed to report deer kills
Lexington Herald-Leader
Although they did a better job this year than last, Alabama hunters didn't do enough in voluntarily reporting all the deer they killed this hunting season, a state conservation official says. Prodded by an aggressive public information campaign by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, hunters reported killing more than 18,500 deer during the season, which ended Feb. 10 as legal hunting closed in southwest Alabama.
