Obscure bird could affect control of US Senate
The Associated Press via WRAL-TV
An obscure, chicken-sized bird best known for its mating dance could help determine whether Democrats or Republicans control the U.S. Senate in the November elections. The federal government is considering listing the greater sage grouse as an endangered species next year. Doing so could limit development, energy exploration, hunting and ranching on the 165 million acres of the bird's habitat across 11 Western states.

Judy Onofrio's cow-bone sculptures confront life and death
The Kansas City Star
From the bones of cattle, Judy Onofrio has created beautiful and macabre sculptures in her solo exhibition "Full Circle" at Sherry Leedy Contemporary Art. Although Onofrio has used bones in previous bodies of work, "Full Circle" is the Minnesota-based artist's first series of sculptures to utilize only paint and bones, creating forms that can feel both heavenly and hellish, confronting the viewer with the fragile nature of life and reality of death.

New York socialite tries to find buyer for his $3.4 million Manhattan apartment covered in wall-to-wall taxidermy collection worth $1 million
Daily Mail
With hundreds of proudly displayed taxidermed beasts adorning the walls this may look like the homestead ranch of a Montana hunter — but in fact it is the two bedroom Manhattan home of a New York socialite he has dubbed the "Animal House." Regardless of its very urban location and erudite curator, Gregory Speck's collection is quite possibly one of the largest in the world and is valued at upwards of $1 million. Indeed, 61-year-old Speck is willing to listen to offers for his impressive troupe which stands at 500 strong now that he is selling his luxury $3.4 million apartment which overlooks Central Park.

Lessons learned in turkey hunting
By John McAdams
As promised in my previous article about my first turkey hunt, I'm discussing some of the lessons I learned while turkey hunting. I had a great time, and I got a nice turkey to show for it. However, the hunt was not perfect and there are always things that I can improve for the next trip. It always pays to sit down after each hunt and determine what you did well, and what you can do better for the future. With any luck, I'll get another chance to put some of these turkey hunting lessons learned to use next year.

Rising duck population bodes well for hunting seasons
Houston Chronicle
North America's duck population continues building, buoyed this spring to numbers unprecedented in more than half a century by an unmatched, almost-two-decade stretch of beneficial habitat conditions on northern nesting grounds that resulted in several years of high duck production. An upshot of the strong duck numbers: Texas' 100,000 waterfowlers are almost assured of seeing the 18th consecutive year of liberal regulations govern the 2014-15 duck seasons, which begin with September's teal-only season.

The fine art of stuffing stiffs
The Irish Times
From the moment you walk into Ingrid Houwers's studio, you feel like you're being watched. A red squirrel pauses to dart a beady eye over its shoulder, a fox crouches low to avoid being seen and a buzzard stares out imperiously from its high perch. All of them seem caught in a single moment, suspended in time, ready to scurry or leap or fly in the next second. The Dutch-born taxidermist, who now lives and works in Bangor, Co Down, has the uncanny ability to bring dead animals back to life, or at least to achieve the next best thing: the illusion of life.

The Dispatch
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is planning to conduct a survey of southwest Washington elk this summer to assess the geographic spread of hoof disease and how it is affecting area elk.
