Taxidermy bill would eliminate interstate game tags, affidavits
Casper Star-Tribune
Before drying out a hide or staining antlers, taxidermist Scott Guenther makes hunters sign an affidavit. In it, they promise that they've truthfully described the animal, any markings it may have, the date and location of the kill, the date it was taken to the taxidermist's shop, and the hunter's name and address. The paperwork is expensive and full of duplication, said Guenther, who owns Gunner's Taxidermy outside of Casper, Wyo.

50 pronghorn missed chance to migrate, endure winter in Wyoming
OutdoorHub
Just south of Grand Teton National Park, the National Elk Refuge in Wyoming is home to one of the largest elk herds in the world. This winter however, a small group of pronghorns will be joining the more than 8,000 elk in the sanctuary. According to the Associated Press, the pronghorn entered the refuge in an attempt to find a better wintering ground than their usual home near Jackson Hole, where 400 pronghorn usually stay during the summer. In winter months, most of these animals move south to the Upper Green River Basin. This year, 50 pronghorn remained.

KyForward
For Kentucky's aging population of deer hunters, their favorite rifle seems to get heavier every season. "That's an issue we all face as we get older," said Gary Roman, a gunsmith at Firearms Service Center in Louisville. "A lot of hunters are looking for ways to lighten their rifles." The rifle favored by Kentucky's older generation of hunters is likely to be a bolt-action, with a 22- to 24-inch barrel, walnut stock and variable magnification telescopic sight.
