The Alaska Board of Game has approved killing grizzly bears and black bears in a 540-square mile area of interior Alaska to boost moose populations. The seven-member citizen board voted unanimously to kill bears for two years in a portion of Game Management Unit 19A starting in spring 2013 using Department of Fish and Game shooters in helicopters. The department estimates there are 135 to 160 black bears and 10 to 15 grizzly bears in the area that covers the middle portion of the Kuskokwim River and includes the villages of Kalskag, Aniak, Sleetmute and Stony River.

Hunters persuaded the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission to unanimously support a proposal to set aside six weeks to chase black bears with dogs, including one week when the bruins they corner can be shot. Commissioners had scrapped that proposal two weeks ago after the Humane Society of the United States criticized the practice as cruel and unsporting. But they reversed themselves in a special meeting at the Department of Fish and Wildlife headquarters in Frankfort, pleasing hunters and causing consternation for animal rights groups. More

The photo shows a hunter with a proud smile holding a slain, man-sized mountain lion in a snowy wilderness — a memento from a successful Idaho hunting trip that has become a political nightmare for the hunter. He is the state Fish and Game Commission president in California, where cougar killing is banned. Since the photograph surfaced in a California hunting journal, Dan Richards has faced growing criticism, and animal-rights activists and 40 California Democratic Assembly members have demanded that he resign from his appointed position.

Nearly a quarter of Kentucky public high schools have expressed interest in fielding teams for bass fishing competitions.

KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett says the addition will allow many students who don't play a sport to represent their school in competition. He says the organization also sanctioned bowling this year and will add archery next year. More

The Express-Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you're a big game hunter in Pennsylvania, then 2011 was definitely an "up" year, at least when you look at the harvest figures. Sportsmen who pursued white-tailed deer had their largest take in five years while bear hunters set a new harvest record with more than 4,300 bears taken. According to statistics recently released by the Pennsylvania Game Commission, deer hunters harvested 336,200 whitetails during the 2011-2012 seasons, up 6 percent from the previous year's harvest. The take also represented the most deer killed in the state since 2006, when 361,560 were harvested. More
