Kansas taxidermist finding his niche
The Topeka Capital-Journal
A monster buck resting peacefully in a meadow. A plump tom gobbling thunderously from its roost. A playful otter frolicking in a creek. For taxidermists like Joe Wayner, the complicated process is more than just a hobby or a job. It's an art form, and these are the moments he is trying to capture in time.

Gyotaku: The most ancient form of taxidermy
Field & Stream
The image you see here is a sockeye salmon "fish rubbing" done by my friend Scott Wells. The process is called Gyotaku, pronounced ghe-yo-tah-koo. "Gyotaku is the ancient art of fish rubbings. Fish rubbings are a very accurate way of recording the species and size of a catch, much better than hero shots along with their inevitable 'hidden elbows,'" Wells said. The technique was invented by the Japanese and is the most ancient form of taxidermy. You can read more about the intricacies of Gyotaku on his new website Reel Fish Ink.

New world-record bighorn ram picked up in Alberta
Outdoor Life
A bighorn ram whose horns reportedly surpass the current world-record measurement has been found dead nearly a year after it disappeared from the grounds of the famous Cadomin Mine property in Alberta. The ram was officially scored at 209-1/8 inches net, with only 2/8 inches of deductions. That score exceeds the current world-record bighorn, also from Alberta, which scores 208-3/8. The Boone & Crockett Club announced the official score and indicated plans to convene a full panel to score the ram — a condition required before bestowing world-record status — in the coming weeks.

How mule deer benefit from sage grouse conservation
Sports Afield
The next time you hunt a big mule deer buck in Wyoming, you might want to thank a sage grouse. That's because a major initiative to conserve sage grouse populations in the West is having beneficial impacts on other game as well — especially mule deer. The Sage Grouse Initiative is a federal initiative designed to conserve fast-declining populations of sage grouse and, hopefully, keep the birds off the Endangered Species List. The work that is being done to improve and save sage grouse habitat is directly benefiting big game around the West, particularly in the state of Wyoming.

Hunters: US ban on elephant trophy imports from Tanzania and Zimbabwe will backfire
WSF
The decision by the United States Fish and Wildlife Services to ban the importation of sport-hunted elephant trophies from Tanzania and Zimbabwe will only serve to fuel the poaching of elephants in those two countries, the Professional Hunters Association of South Africa said. "American hunters contribute about 60 percent of all revenue generated through hunting in Tanzania and Zimbabwe and a ban on elephant trophy imports could lead to a closure of a number of hunting operators in those countries and a corresponding loss of income for those communities dependent on hunting for their survival," said Adri Kitshoff, chief executive.
