Taxidermists say accuracy, attention to detail keys to a good mount
Daily Herald Media
Those attending the Wisconsin Deer Classic and Hunting Expo at the Patriot Center in Rothschild, Wis., had no shortage of vendors to visit and seminars to attend, but plenty made time to view the Champions Display presented by the Wisconsin Taxidermists Association. There they were able to view dozens of award-winning mounts of a variety of wildlife — birds, deer, elk, turkeys, wild boar — even an orange and white Bengal tiger.

Big bucks in the sage
Sports Afield
The next time you hunt a big mule deer buck in Wyoming, you might want to thank a sage grouse. That's because a major initiative to conserve sage grouse populations in the West is having beneficial impacts on other game as well—especially mule deer. The Sage Grouse Initiative is a federal initiative designed to conserve fast-declining populations of sage grouse and, hopefully, keep the birds off the Endangered Species List. The work that is being done to improve and save sage grouse habitat is directly benefiting big game around the West, particularly in the state of Wyoming.

KSL-TV
What began as a dozen desert bighorn sheep reintroduced into Zion National Park in 1973 has now become the largest and possibly healthiest herd of bighorn sheep in Utah.

Shed hunting: A sport unto itself
OutdoorHub
Bernie Barringer of OutdoorHub, writes: "I found my first whitetail shed antler purely by accident. I was setting fox traps along a brushy fencerow and there was a shed antler which had been lying there for the better part of a year. I picked it up and brought it home. Despite the fact that it was somewhat chewed up, it was clear this antler came from a big 10-point buck. I became fascinated by the amazing phenomenon of antlers."

Bowling Green Daily News
Warming temperatures and longer days trigger an angler's instinct to reacquaint oneself with a favorite lake, and try new techniques and equipment picked up over the winter.

The buck who carried his rival's head
OutdoorHub
While it may look like a grisly trophy, the story behind the picture of the antler-locked bucks above is one of survival and endurance. Luke Laha, a wildlife management instructor in Kansas, was asked about how he and his students rescued an antler-locked deer that had been carrying around the head of his rival. So how did this deer come to be wearing such bizarre headgear? Laha said that there was once a body attached to that head, before the coyotes came.

The basics of resizing rifle and pistol cartridge cases
OutdoorHub
Every time you pull the trigger, lots of violent things happen inside the chamber of your gun. All of this happens in a split second and is the reason that, when reloading your own ammunition, you need to resize the brass cartridge case. While resizing the cartridge case rarely compresses a case to its original size, it will crush it back within cartridge dimension standards, allowing it to chamber in any gun of the proper caliber.

Patience is often the key to a successful hunt
By John McAdams
As I grow older and more experienced as a hunter, one specific trait seems to become more important to success than any other: patience. I have missed many an opportunity while hunting due to lack of patience and a desire to rapidly accomplish something. However, there have been several events where I have been successful due to slowing down and waiting. The story of my first "trophy" white-tailed deer is a key example of how patience can pay off.
