That marks a 9 percent increase over 2006, reversing a previous downward trend. Conservation groups are noting that these numbers are important not just for hunters themselves, but for wildlife and for the future of conservation. More

Bighorn sheep could once more roam the Santa Catalina Mountains in Arizona — possibly as soon as this fall. Preliminary plans call for "bringing sheep from Southwestern Arizona and putting them into the Catalinas," where the last remnants of a native bighorn herd died out about a decade ago, said Jim Heffelfinger, regional game specialist with the Arizona Game and Fish Department. The hope this time is that changes to the landscape brought on by wildfires and more genetically diverse herds could help with their long-term survival. More

North Texas e-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Luke Clayton, a contributor for the North Texas e-News, writes: "There is a great deal of information available on most aspects of wild hog hunting but the art of using calls to attract porkers within shooting range is one that is often skirted around, probably because of lack of factual information. Through the years, I've had very limited success using calls to attract hogs.
