Report shows hunting remains safe outdoor activity
The Waco Tribune
If drivers were as careful as hunters, body shops would go out of business. According to a recent Texas Parks and Wildlife article, the state's hunter safety program has established a welcome trend in numbers of hunting mishaps — hunting accidents and fatalities in Texas continued their long-term decline in 2012. There are still fewer than three accidents per 100,000 hunters. Last year, there were 25 reported hunting-related accidents, five of which were fatalities. And while any fatality is tragic, Texas accident numbers are small compared to the number of hunters — 1,155,542 hunting licenses were issued in 2012.

Outdoor Life Magazine reviews TrackingPoint rifle on the hunt
PRWeb
Precision Guided Firearms have been the talk of the tech, outdoors and firearms media since their launch in January 2013. While many have discussed the system, very few have had the privilege to actually be able to shoot it and even fewer have been able to experience it off the range and in action in a real life long range hunting scenario. John B. Snow, the shooting editor from Outdoor Life magazine, took the new TrackingPoint system out in Texas to hunt for nilgai to see how the precision long range hunting rifle really performed while in action. Along with other Outdoor Life staff members and a team of TrackingPoint firearm's experts, they took long distance shots and harvested game.

Young voters aren't sold on gun control
U.S. News and World Report
Young people have helped push the gay marriage issue to the forefront, with so many voters 30 and under supporting marriage equality that Republicans have been forced to accept — or at least re-examine — the matter. Sticking to an anti-gay rights agenda could cost the GOP votes down the road and many Republicans are wisely seeing that on a purely political basis, things need to change. The same trend, however, is not mirrored on the matter of gun control.

The importance of the follow-up shot
By John McAdams
Utilizing well-aimed follow-up shots is just one piece of the puzzle for a successful hunt. It's not always possible or realistic to do so, but when done properly, it can potentially save you a lot of time and frustration on your hunt. Developing the skills and the mindset necessary to take successful follow-up shots just might be the difference between the trophy of a lifetime and a heartbreaking missed opportunity.

A wild turkey may just have a mind of its own
Portland Press Herald
Bob Humphrey, a contributor for the Portland Press Herald, writes: "Conventional turkey hunting wisdom tells us it's nigh onto impossible to call a love-struck tom away from his hen. Sage veterans will explain it's much easier to call turkeys uphill and all the how-to manuals tell you to avoid obstacles like water and fences when calling a gobbler. Being self-taught, I didn't know any of those things when I killed my first Maine turkey. He was strutting for a hen and when I called he folded up, walked downhill, ducked under a barbed wire fence and waded through ankle-deep water (my ankles, not his) to reach me. I have since learned all that advice is good and holds true most of the time. But there are exceptions to every rule."

Fort Worth Star-Tribune
For Dave Conger, who turns 87 soon, the outdoors is his Fountain of Youth. "I've hunted and fished all my life," he said. And he continues to do so. "I don't have the strength and stamina I used to, but I can still get out," he said. So, Conger hunkered in a portable ground blind with his son-in-law, Tom Anderson, when a huge gobbler strutted into shotgun range, enticed by Anderson's calling. Conger, of Oak Grove in Anoka County, Minn., fired once, dropping the 23-pound long-beard.

Dems push gun control agenda in DC, but not in battleground states
The Hill
Democratic leaders are wooing staunchly pro-gun candidates to run in pivotal Senate races at the same time they are discussing a strategy for bringing gun control legislation back up for debate. The two-pronged effort has prompted Republicans to accuse the Senate Democratic leadership of hypocrisy, but Democrats say it is simply smart politics.
