It's far easier to bag a Kentucky elk than to bag a tag
The Courier-Journal
Of the 38,935 hunters who applied for a 2014 Kentucky elk tag, 37,925 got the following message: "You were not selected for an elk quota hunt this year. Thank you for applying. Good luck next year." The application deadline was April 30. Results were posted recently on the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources' website. The polite rejection assumes that those who were not drawn for a tag this year will apply again in 2015. Most will, but the odds of being drawn are not likely to improve.

Winchester's deadly Long Beard XR turkey loads
Ammo Land
Glen Wunderlich a contributor for Ammo Land, writes: "At the end of a day's session at the firing range, a friend plopped down a 12x18-inch turkey target thoroughly covered with shot from Winchester's new Long Beard XR 12-gauge load. "60 yards!" he exclaimed. I knew right then that further review was necessary. Winchester obliged by supplying some of its Long Beard XR copper plated, 3-inch loads of 4s and 6s and some test targets. It was time for the testing to begin."

Independent Record
On a day when the April wind and showers took a break long enough for the sun to come out and warm the Helena Valley, more than 200 young people descended on the Helena Gun Club for a field day to complete their hunter education courses. For some volunteer instructors, the field day marked the first in many future years teaching the course. But for a wily few, the desire to shape a future generation of hunters has brought them back for decades.

You won the big game lottery — now what
Anchorage Daily News
By Cody Jacobson: "Are you one of the lucky recipients of a big game draw tag? If so, then in my opinion you have just won the Alaska lottery. But where to even begin planning? I've worked for more than 15 years in the hunting and firearms industries, and people often come to me seeking advice on what to purchase for their first Alaska hunt. Often, these first-time hunters have won a draw tag — many times after just applying once. Isn't that just how the luck of the draw works."
