Milwaukee Public Museum's taxidermist has eye for detail
The Journal Sentinel
Few people would know, really. But next year when visitors see two Arabian horses pulling King Tut's chariot in the Milwaukee Public Museum's first new permanent exhibit in a decade, they can rest assured the equine models will be as accurate as humanly possible. Wendy Christensen wouldn't have it any other way.

Whimsical taxidermy catches on in Baltimore

Three television shows delve into the art of preserving animals, and its practitioners, who are, as you might imagine, a quirky lot. There are national taxidermy competitions and conferences and even a Brooklyn museum devoted to the art.

Sunday hunting ban to be lifted: Local opinions vary on new law
Tidewater Review
Hunters may soon have extra days added to the game season. Legislation that lifts the traditional ban on Sunday hunting in the Commonwealth of Virginia has passed the General Assembly and is expected to soon receive Governor Terry McAuliffe's signature. Proponents of the bill say the current law is outdated and a lift on the ban could bring additional revenue to the Commonwealth. Opponents, however, worry about the safety of non-hunters who use the woods and the impact on the hunting culture and what is a traditional day of rest.

In Texas there are a variety of small game species available for hunting including (but not limited to) wild rabbits, squirrels, upland game birds such as quail or pheasants or migratory game birds like ducks, geese, mourning doves or white-winged doves.

An ancient fish returns to Texas' Caddo Lake
The Gilmer Mirror
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department released close to 50 paddlefish into Caddo Lake on the Texas-Louisiana border and the river that forms it, Big Cypress Bayou. The release is an experiment, designed to provide data that could inform a future plan for a large-scale stocking at Caddo Lake. While paddlefish populations are faring better in some states, the fish remains listed as a species of concern under the Endangered Species Act and is rarely found in Texas.

Boat isn't necessary for productive early spring sauger, walleye fishing
News Democrat and Leader
The cold, muddy water coursing through many rivers in Kentucky right now brings another round of dread in anglers. This situation seems depressing, but for anglers with level 10 cabin fever after this long, dark winter, it is good news. When the rivers clear and stabilize, the sauger and walleye fishing will take off downstream of Green River Lake, Lake Cumberland, Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley. "I think the fish are there right now," said Ryan Oster, fisheries program coordinator for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. "It is just a question of flow now. When the tailwaters come down to a fishable level, the fish are there and will bite."
