Bill stirs up New Mexico Senate race
The Associated Press via    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An environmental group that is part of a coalition behind a $2 million advertising blitz supporting U.S. Rep. Martin Heinrich's campaign for U.S. Senate has joined sportsmen groups in pushing his legislation to improve access to millions of acres of public land. The measure introduced by Heinrich, D-N.M., calls for an inventory of all public parcels larger than a square mile where hunting, fishing and other recreation are allowed but where access is blocked. It also asks agencies to acquire easements and rights of way for improving access. More

Wyoming Game and Fish Commission rejects new unlimited cougar hunt area
Star-Tribune via Rapid City Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Mountain lions in the northeast part of Wyoming will not face an unlimited quota season this fall. A new proposal by Wyoming Game and Fish Department biologists called for an existing hunt area in the Black Hills to be split in two. One of the new areas would have had an unlimited quota. The area mostly is on private land and the proposed unlimited quota was primarily a response to concerns by area landowners and residents, said Tom Ryder, assistant chief of the wildlife division for the Game and Fish Department. The Wyoming Black Hills mountain lion population is one of the newest in the country and has one of the highest densities of any population in the state. More

Montana eases hunting rules for once-endangered wolves

Montana wildlife officials have loosened restrictions on wolf hunting, allowing trapping of the animals in the state for the first time since they were removed from the endangered species list last year. Passed by the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks Commission, the new regulations also extend the length of the hunting season and remove the statewide kill limit in an effort to curtail a wolf population that has been steadily increasing. Biologists counted at least 650 wolves in the state even before this year's litter of pups were born, which wildlife officials say is well above what is considered a healthy population. Sportsmen and ranchers have blamed wolves for depleting elk populations in some areas and for killing livestock. More

Salmon season opens in California
Appeal-Democrat    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hundreds — if not thousands — of fishermen clogged favored fishing holes along the Feather River for opening day of recreational salmon season on California rivers. Using hired guides, driving their own boats or standing on shorelines in waders or flip-flops and shorts, they spun lines and sank lures in hopes of snagging their two-fish limit. Many were hungry to take part in what officials are saying is the first normal fall run of Chinook salmon since a drastic decline in population five years ago. More
