"My favorite thing is taking something that no longer has life and giving it a new life," she said.

Whether you are on the water or in the woods, if fish or game is involved, so is scouting
SurfKy.com
Just because your boat is in the water, doesn't mean that all you have to do is drop a line in order to catch fish. The same goes for the woods. It doesn't matter what game you are after, just surrounding yourself with trees will not guarantee any success. And then there are the signs that give proof that fish or game have been there before. This is especially evident in hunting. Game trails run throughout the woods. These paths are proof positive that some or perhaps many types of critters are moving throughout the area you are in. But again, these signs do not guarantee a successful place to hunt.

Nevada implements bighorn ewe hunts to manage growing populations
Nevada Department of Wildlife
The Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners voted in their January/February 2014 meeting to allow bighorn sheep ewe hunting at the recommendation of the Nevada Department of Wildlife. The first ewe hunt was a decision of last resort based on several factors of bighorn sheep management. Bighorn sheep are now facing issues of overpopulation. "Nevada has been highly successful in restoring bighorn sheep since the first bighorn release occurred in 1968," said NDOW big game biologist Mike Cox. "Bighorn populations went from an estimated 3,000 to 11,000 and we have become victims of our own success."

Fly fishing for bass a subtle presentation with dramatic results
KyForward
Catch a bass fly fishing and it's an experience not soon forgotten: The sight of the fly line rolling forward, a fly landing on quiet water with a resounding plop. A tug on the fly line makes the fly pop, sending tiny ripples outward. The lure is motionless for an instant. Then a bass comes up and engulfs it in a swirl of water. With a sweep of the fly rod, the fish is solidly hooked. The fly line rips a gash across the surface of the water as the bass accelerates. Then it cartwheels out of the water in total abandon.

5 mature buck myths dashed
American Hunter
By Frank Miniter: "When I ask deer researchers what GPS-collar studies are telling them about mature-buck movement the first thing they all tell me is 'mature bucks are individuals.' No deer hunter who has tried to pattern more than one mature buck would dispute that, but this answer bothers me, as it insinuates there are no concrete answers. So I push the deer biologists for more and they say things like: 'Well, on deeper analysis we can fit many bucks into different personality profiles; when you know a buck's personality type you can better predict its movement.'"

Leaders of conservation: MidwayUSA CEO Larry Potterfield
Outdoorhub
This interview with MidwayUSA CEO and founder Larry Potterfield is part of OutdoorHub’s Leaders of Conservation series, in which we sit down with leaders of the North American conservation movement to learn more about the stories behind their organizations and people. The tale of MidwayUSA's rise to outdoor industry prominence is perhaps the quintessential American success story. From a small startup gun shop in Columbia, Missouri, Larry Potterfield built the business into a sprawling online retailer. It all started with a little vision, enthusiasm, and perhaps a bit of 8mm Japanese pistol ammunition.
