People who have paid attention to recent outdoors newspaper, magazine and television stories may have noticed pictures of beaming youths following a successful hunt.

Three bills before the Idaho Legislature this year would expand one of big-game hunting's most controversial practices: Selling tags to hunt Idaho wildlife to the highest bidder.

Michigan's new hunting program for children will start this year, with licenses on sale starting March 1. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced that the Michigan Natural Resources Commission approved the program aimed at introducing children under the age of 10 to hunting and fishing. It's called the Mentored Youth Hunting program. A recent law eliminated the minimum hunting age, allowing children under 10 to hunt with an adult who's at least 21 years old. Under the rules for the new youth program, the adult must have previous hunting experience and possess a valid Michigan hunting license. More

Glynn Harris: A bumper year for trophy bucks in Louisiana
Bastrop Daily Enterprise    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The deer season that just ended in Louisiana goes down as a whopping success, writes the columnist. "No, I didn't get my buck but I had the opportunity to interview and write about scores of other hunters who did. I came away from this past season with enough evidence to validate that Louisiana takes a back seat to few other states when it comes to producing trophy bucks." More

Wyoming has finally struck a deal with the federal government regarding how gray wolves will be treated once the state takes over. But environmentalists believe the agreement denies wolves an important refuge. There weren't any wolves in Wyoming until the federal government reintroduced them in the 1990s. Now there are at least 329 in the state. But the state is eager to shrink the population because wolves kill livestock and game. More

The West Texas deer season wrapped up in January and, as expected, it was the worst season in recent memory. The drought of 2011 had a devastating impact on the deer herd and forced hunters, guides and taxidermists to scramble to make the best of a bad situation. Deer numbers were way down and fawns didn't survive. Antler growth was stunted in bucks. The business of deer hunting was bad as the cost of deer feed went up while the quality of the herd went down.
