Wildlife: Hunters, anglers fund 75 years of conservation
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Later this year, the conservation community will celebrate the 75th anniversary of federal legislation that keeps state wildlife agencies afloat. On Sept. 2, 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act. More commonly known as the Pittman-Robertson Act, it honors its chief sponsors, U.S. Sen. Key Pittman of Nevada and U.S. Rep. Willis Robertson of Virginia. It's difficult to imagine the sacrifice sportsmen — primarily hunters — made back in the early 1930s as this legislation was being formulated. It called for a federal excise tax on sporting arms to ensure a solid financial base for wildlife conservation. Sportsmen demanded that they be taxed to ensure the future of wildlife. More

Sportsmen across the state will be affected by three historic decisions approved during a recent Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission meeting. A plan proposed during May's meeting to push the state's boundary waters from the current 3-mile limit out to three marine leagues — 10.357 miles — drew a 6-0 vote. Stephen Sagrera of Abbeville, La., was absent from the meeting of the seven-member board. For hunters, the commission unanimously approved a shift from a decades-old two-zone, two-splits duck season to a three-zone, two-splits season, a plan that will have East, West and Coastal zones for upcoming waterfowl hunts.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife wants to acquire 1,400 acres north of Merrill Lake in Cowlitz County that includes massive old-growth fir and cedar, ancient lava flows and Kalama Falls. "This has all the features of a national park," said Bill Richardson, Washington-Oregon lands program manager for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

ABC Newspapers    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Anoka is establishing a new wildlife management policy that will allow deer hunting on King's Island. The deer population on the 60-acre island is estimated at 13, well above the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources recommended 10 to 20 deer for every square mile, said Public Services Director Greg Lee. Those deer are moving into the community, being seen on city streets and in residential neighborhoods. And they are colliding with vehicles on Highway 10. "There have been 10 deer/car collisions in the last year," Lee said. More

Don Gensil of Dorrance Township, Pa., makes successful hunting sound simple. "You have to spend your time in the woods. Sooner or later, something is going to cross your path," he said. This season, his 45th as a hunter, Gensil crossed paths with a bear, a buck and a turkey. He brought home all three, a feat that many hunters attempt but seldom complete in the same year. More

Longtime Casco, Minn., dairy farmer and hunter Ken Jeanquart says he often sees wolves around his farm — more every year. "Predator control was good enough with the coyotes in the area, but now we got the influx of the wolves," Jeanquart said. "There's not much of a place for them around here. It's a predator we don't need." And Jeanquart just might get to do something about it. According to the recent DNR's wolf hunt proposal, people will be able to purchase a wolf trapping and hunting license as early as August. More
