New exhibit explores taxidermy, animal bodies in fine art
WFPL-TV
Using stuffed animals in art isn't a new technique — 19th century ornithology expert John James Audubon was also an accomplished taxidermist, and he drew many of his iconic birds of America from his own models posed in the field. But the artists in Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft's new exhibit "Second Life" are taking the repurposing of bio-materials to a new level.

Experiencing a turkey hunt for the first time
By John McAdams
Prior to this year, I had never seriously been turkey hunting before. I grew up hunting in a part of Texas where turkey populations were low, and I never seemed to have the time necessary to hunt turkey in New York and Georgia while I lived there. However, I recently had a great opportunity to go on a guided turkey hunt on some private land near Spokane, Washington, during Memorial Day weekend. I jumped at the chance to get my first turkey.

Virtual sign-in board improves hunting, safety
The Clarion-Ledger
The sign-in board is a fixture at almost every deer camp. Hunters stop by early morning and place a pin or magnet on a map to let other members know where they are hunting. When the hunt is over, they return and remove the marker to let others know the stand is not in use. It is certainly effective, but like all things, there is room for improvement, and Toxie Givens knew it.
