The Courier    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Representatives from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission presented a proposal for an urban deer hunt to the Russellville City Council recently at a public hearing. The hunt would aim at reducing the city's rising deer population. Brad Miller, assistant chief of the AGFC, presented several options of controlling the deer population to the council, including educating and prohibiting feeding, fertility control, trapping and transferring deer, sharpshooting and a regulated urban deer hunt, which he said would be the most efficient.

Nebraska lawmakers approve mountain lion hunting bill

Nebraska lawmakers passed a bill that would allow for mountain lion hunting and create a state program that lets hunters donate deer meat to the hungry. The proposals mixed into one bill won final approval, 49-0. State Sen. LeRoy Louden of Ellsworth introduced the mountain lion hunting bill in response to increased sightings in Nebraska. Current state law only allows people to kill mountain lions if they are threatening humans or livestock. State officials say the mountain lion population is increasing, although the number of lions is estimated at fewer than 60 statewide. If the population continues to grow, Game and Parks could create a limited hunting season that would likely allow up to four lions to be taken per year. More

Hunters heading out for spring turkeys, bears
Great Falls Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Montana hunters were expected to be stirring over the weekend: Spring turkey season opened Saturday and black bear season opened Sunday. Turkey terrain will be more accessible than bear habitat at this time of the year since much of the birds' habitat is in eastern Montana where most snow is long gone. While black bears have been reported out of their dens, many likely have punched the snooze alarm and won't be out for a few more weeks. More

State lawmakers have shelved a proposal to let residents of neighboring states purchase Louisiana hunting and fishing licenses at resident prices if those states offer the same privilege to Louisiana residents. Instead, the Senate Natural Resources Committee asked for a study of the idea by state Sen. Barrow Peacock, R-Shreveport. Louisiana residents regularly hunt in Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas, and Peacock said the costs of out-of-state licenses are hard to afford for many people. Peacock said he wants to encourage those states to let Louisiana residents pay the cheaper in-state cost by offering something similar here. More

Outdoor lovers overwhelmingly endorsed the idea of hunting sandhill cranes recently at a series of public hearings around Wisconsin, wildlife officials said. The Wisconsin Conservation Congress asked everyone who attended its annual statewide spring hearings whether they support a sandhill season. Attendees approved the idea by more than a 2-to-1 margin, according to a count the state Department of Natural Resources released. The vote promises to give conservative lawmakers more leverage as they advance legislation authorizing a hunt — and ratchet up an already bitter debate in a state that both prides itself on its hunting culture and serves as home to the International Crane Foundation, one of the world's premier crane conservation organizations.

Younger and older hunters will soon have more freedom to use crossbows beginning this fall. The Kansas Wildlife, Park and Tourism Commission voted to allow hunters 55 and older and those 15 years older with a youth big game permit to use the equipment during big game archery season, according to The Associated Press. Crossbows previously have been allowed for Kansans physically unable to hunt with traditional archery equipment, but this moves the state closer to the freedoms of several other states which allow all sportsmen the privilege.
