Organization launched to promote Missouri hunting
The Kansas City Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Shannon Peisert has seen firsthand the impact hunting has had on Missouri's economy. When her family opened Rogers Sporting Goods in Liberty in 1980, the store covered 1,500 square feet and catered primarily to fishermen. Today, that family business, of which Peisert is general manager, covers 52,500 square feet, employs 45 people and does a thriving Internet business. The reason for the growth? Hunting. That's why Peisert volunteered to serve as co-chair of the Hunting Works for Missouri partnership, a group dedicated to promote the major impact hunting has on Missouri's economy. More

Hog hunting expansion bill undergoes slight changes
Rock Hill Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The aggressive effort to reduce the population of wild hogs and coyotes in South Carolina with a night hunting season was toned down slightly with amendments by a Senate subcommittee. The Fish, Game and Forestry subcommittee still would like hunters to kill as many of the invasive and destructive species as possible, but it doesn't want the effort to devolve into a Wild West situation. The amendments to a bill (H.4943) passed by the House would require landowners to at least notify the Department of Natural Resources of plans to hunt hogs, coyotes or armadillos on their property at night during the four-month season.

Muskrat hunting would be limited under new season
The Daily Republic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The state Game, Fish and Parks Commission is proposing an uncharacteristic restriction for South Dakota's new muskrat hunting season that was established by the Legislature. The commission plans to close all public land to muskrat shooting. Trapping muskrats on public land would remain legal. Normally, the commission is a promoter of public hunting areas and owns many thousands of acres of game and waterfowl areas for public use throughout South Dakota. For muskrats, however, hunting would be allowed only on private land by the property's owner or operator. More

David Dirks: Antler restrictions are OK
Times Herald-Record    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you hunt deer in wildlife management unit 3M, which represents the Orange County, N.Y., area in general, David Hartman wants to introduce you to antler restrictions. Several WMUs in the Hudson Valley have been under antler restrictions for a few years. Most of the hunters spoken to who hunt in units under antler restrictions are very satisfied with the results. Hartman leads the Whitetail Management Coalition, a nonprofit that is "dedicated to improving deer management and the hunting experience in New York." Hartman has been spearheading efforts to get the state Department of Environmental Conservation to expand the number of units with antler restrictions. Surely all units within the state could be bound within the antler restriction program. More
