Increase in hunter numbers might be mirage
OutdoorHub
Tom Heberlein flipped his newspaper aside, sipped his coffee and said skeptically, "Someone needs to explain these higher hunter numbers rather than simply making happy dances about them." It was early October 2012. Heberlein — a rural sociologist who often studied hunters and hunting during a 30-plus-year career at the University of Wisconsin-Madison — was reading an article that said hunting participation increased nine percent nationwide from 2006 to 2011. The article was quoting from the just released 2011 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation.

New batch of B&C scorers in Texas
TWA
Recently, a group of 26 Texans were certified as Official Measurers for the Boone and Crockett Club after completing an intense training program at the Lee and Ramona Bass Conference Building located on the Kerr Wildlife Management Area near Hunt, Texas. The group was made up of Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists, private land managers and TWA staff members. The broad geographic distribution of the attendees will allow for much better data collection for the Boone and Crockett Club and will also increase the efficiency of the Texas Big Game Awards scoring process.

Cooking wild game to perfection
By John McAdams
Eating wild game is one of the most popular reasons that people give for hunting. However, many people — especially nonhunters — are often reluctant to eat wild game. While there are many potential reasons for their reluctance, misconceptions about the safety and taste of wild game are probably among the most common reasons given. Fortunately, wild game can be both delicious and healthy table fare if properly prepared. Probably the easiest way to accomplish this is to use a high-quality wild game cookbook.

Fishing abounds in 4 small, boat-friendly Central Kentucky lakes
KyForward
Some of the best fishing of the spring occurs in small lakes. They are shallower than major reservoirs, so they warm up faster. Fish become active sooner and spawn earlier. Here’s the fishing outlook, and some observations about four small boat-friendly lakes in Central Kentucky: Guist Creek Lake. Anglers have an excellent new carry down area to launch on the 317-acre lake in Shelby County.

Bringing bighorns back from the brink
The Inyo Register
Sierra bighorn sheep spend much of their lives nimbly navigating around cliffs and along rocky ledges far above timberline, displaying an uncanny ability to scramble around what appears to be imminent danger. And for almost 20 years, the bighorns' balancing act has been shadowed by the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation. The nonprofit group originally worked to pull the bighorns back from the brink of extinction, and is currently working to expand its reach so it can keep up with a string of successes that has seen a steady increase in the number of Sierra bighorn, and successful efforts to transplant and reintroduce the iconic animal to two more of its historic ranges in the Sierra.
