Study: Gun violence plummeted, but people think it increased
The Daily Caller
The reality of declining gun violence in America is starkly at odds with public perception, a new study finds. The gun homicide rate shrank by 49 percent between 1993 and 2010, according to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center. Violent crime rates surged in the 1960s and 1970s, peaked in the 1980s and early 1990s, and then began to fall dramatically. The decline leveled off in the early 2000s, but resumed in 2007.

Fishing stick worms for bass in the spring
Wired2Fish
Stick worms for bass are widely regarded as one of the most simple, yet effective ways to catch more fish. In a time where many soft plastic baits look more like spaceships than bass cuisine, sometimes keeping your bait selection simple can pay big dividends. Throughout the spring, it's not uncommon to see Yum pro Matt Reed and Keystone Light pro Brent Ehrler ditch the appendages and opt for the simple, subtle profile of a stick worm. It's almost impossible to fish a stick worm incorrectly, but Reed and Ehrler have keyed in on a few simple, yet very useful tips.

Gun control debate may return as Republicans signal a new willingness to talk
The Washington Post
At least two Republican senators have signaled that they may reconsider their opposition to expanded national background checks for gun purchases, aides said, suggesting that the push for stricter gun laws could return as a top issue in Washington, D.C., in the coming weeks. The gun debate appeared to be largely abandoned on Capitol Hill following a resounding defeat in the Senate. But a handful of lawmakers are showing a new eagerness to engage on the issue after gun-control groups launched campaigns against senators in both parties who voted against the background check proposal.

Bow sights for the western bowhunter
By Marc S. Smith
Bow sights today are as good as they have ever been. Manufacturers are using processes and materials that make bow sights precision instruments. Quality sights today feature second- and third-axis leveling adjustment and include a bubble for leveling the sight right in the pin housing. The moveable, sliding mechanisms of modern bow sights allow archers to dial in their sights to the half-yard. This type of precision coupled with a quality laser range-finder makes accurate long-range archery shots a reality.

How the nontypical Texas archery record fell twice in one season
Field & Stream
Lighting struck twice in Texas last season when two hunters each tagged 250-class nontypical bucks. Both deer were contenders for the state record, but when an official Pope and Young scoring panel began reviewing the second rack, things got complicated. The Texas deer season was less than an hour old, and A.J. Downs had a 28-point buck on the ground that he'd been watching on his trail camera for a month. From the moment he spotted the massive deer in late August, the Conroe, Texas, bowhunter knew it was an outlier.

Montana looks to expand hunting of wolves
Times Live
Conservationists are criticizing a plan by wildlife managers in Montana that would nearly double the number of wolves a person is allowed to kill each year, lengthen the hunting season and sanction shooting of wolves near baited traps. The proposal by the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission officially began receiving public comment on May 13 and is to be voted on by commissioners this summer. The aim is to reduce the state's wolf population, estimated at 625, by giving more leeway to hunters and trappers, wildlife officials said.
