Boone and Crockett via WSF
The largest grizzly bear ever taken by a hunter has been entered into Boone and Crockett records. The big bruin, taken in 2013 near Fairbanks, Alaska, scores 27-6/16. It missed the World's Record mark by 7/16 of an inch but landed a spot as the second-largest grizzly ever recorded. The reigning World's Record is a skull found in Alaska in 1976. Bears are scored based on skull length and width measurements.

Library turns down elephant head
Columbus Telegram
The Columbus Public Library board meeting had an interesting twist to vote involving an earlier Columbus event. The Chuck Sand Safari Auction held in March at Platte County Agricultural Park had a rather huge piece leftover by the end of the auction. A taxidermy elephant head was among one of about 125 pieces collected throughout Sand’s safari travels. The elephant was offered to the library. Though the board expressed its appreciation, it voted to respectfully decline the generous donation.

Safari Club International files motion for preliminary injunction against elephant importation bans
WSF
Safari Club International's litigation team took the second step in its challenge to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's bans on the importation of sport-hunted elephants from Zimbabwe and Tanzania. SCI filed a motion for a preliminary injunction, asking the court to immediately lift the importation bans.

KyForward
A jointed Thunderstick or Redfin lure slowly worked on the surface along a main lake bank on Lake Cumberland at 3 a.m. in early May could provoke a reaction from a striped bass that feels like it could rip your arm off your shoulder. The savagery of a surface strike from a striped bass on a late spring night on Lake Cumberland is one of the outdoor experiences that sears into the brain, leaving a lifelong scar that itches every May.
