National Shooting Sports Foundation via The Daily Caller    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee has approved the fiscal year 2013 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill that includes $7.5 million to expand and enhance access for hunting, fishing and recreational shooting on U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Bureau of Land Management lands. Securing this funding has been a priority for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, along with partner organizations such as the Boone and Crockett Club, NRA, the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation and others. If included in the final appropriations measure, the funding will allow the Forest Service and BLM to acquire rights-of-way and other land interests from willing-seller landowners to open access to existing federal lands for hunting and fishing where it is closed or significantly restricted.

The state Natural Resources Board is scheduled July 17 to consider the parameters for this fall's wolf hunt. Republican Gov.

Alabama hunting ministry helps youth connect to outdoors
The Birmingham News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Steve Sparks has a special place in his heart for children. He also loves hunting. It was only nat­ural that Sparks, a deeply religious man, found a way to combine all three of his passions. His idea of a Christian-based hunting experience for youths raised some eyebrows when he started it in 2009, but Sparks never let his dream waver. Today, Majestic Outdoors Min­­istries in Pell City, Ala., is a driving force in the area for youths looking for some direction in life. On Memo­rial Day, the nonprofit organiza­tion opened its doors for a field day for children to learn the basics of the outdoors experience. Sixty kids and 54 adult volunteers spent the day learning and teaching. More

Missouri fishermen land proof that state still has catfish of legendary proportions
The Kansas City Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Don't assume that all of the legendary catfish caught in Missouri came from the "good ol' days." True, the Show Me State has a long history of producing huge cats. Riverboat captains on the Missouri and Mississippi rivers talk about fish as big as a man being reeled in. But in a way, that history is still being written. Take it from Danny Calvert and Clay Smith, who both landed monstrous catfish in June — a 98-pound blue cat and a 67-pound flathead — fish that have turned back Missouri's clock. More

Donated doves provide research opportunity for TP&W biologists
San Antonio Express-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Texas hunters forsaking a meal of grilled or fried dove breasts last September will be reaping the benefits of their 1,700 bagged birds this season through research under way at Texas A&M University. "Undergraduates are going over each bird to collect information that will provide an annual index of recruitment and reproduction that does not exist at a multistate level," said Corey Mason, dove program leader at the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. "With better information, we can provide better management. That is what this two-year study is all about." The research being conducted at A&M is the first study of its kind on white-winged doves — one of the nation's most popular migratory birds. More
