Hunters urged to take care when harvesting feral hogs
The Fayetteville Observer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Keith Gallaher began feeling ill in late April, some two months after he and his two sons went hunting for feral pigs near Smithfield, Ark. Two months, one hospital stay and many tests later, he learned what ailed him wasn't the flu, as he initially thought, but Brucella suis, a bacteria that experts say could pose a threat to the state's hog industry.

Experienced gator hunters are wanted for the History Channel's "Swamp People," the reality show heading into its fourth season about men and women "who live off the swamp."

Idaho's wolf hunt season open all year
Times-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's not open everywhere, but Idaho hunters now have the option to kill wolves all year. This year's newly approved wolf hunting season allowed hunters to begin killing wolves on private land in the Panhandle Zone, beginning July 1. The rest of the state will open for wolf hunting Aug. 30, and most trapping areas will open Nov. 15. Previously, Idaho's 2011-2012 wolf hunting season was open 10 months throughout most parts of the state. During that time, hunters killed 255 wolves and trappers killed 124. Hunters are allowed to purchase five wolf tags, but half the state’s zones only allow hunters to use two tags in that area. For trappers, five tags may be purchased and used in all trapping zones except the McCall-Weiser Zone. More

Missoulian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Prospective wolf trappers are letting Montana wildlife officials know they're ready to take the classes needed to allow them to take part in the state's first wolf trapping season. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks recently began taking names of people interested in taking the required certification classes. Less than 48 hours later, 312 people had signed the roster. When the FWP Commission approved the state's first wolf trapping season, it required prospective trappers to attend certification classes to learn what it will take to properly harvest a wolf. More

Ruedi water-release outlook looks good for anglers in Colorado
The Aspen Times via Post Independent    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Anglers on the lower Fryingpan River can expect favorable flows starting in late July or early August, but some boaters on Ruedi Reservoir in Basalt, Colo., will be high and dry at the same time, according to federal officials who influence water releases. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service anticipates drawing water from Ruedi that will require releases of 120 cubic feet per second late this month or early in August, according to Jana Moohrman, a hydrologist who works on the Endangered Fish Recovery Program on the lower Colorado River. Those releases will continue until about Oct. 15, she said. More

New Idaho rules aid disabled and young hunters
The Spokesman-Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Idaho Fish and Game Commission recently adopted rules that boost disabled and youth hunters:
  • A companion without a tag or permit will be allowed to assist a disabled hunter.
  • A person will be able to transfer a controlled hunt tag to a child or grandchild.
Idaho lawmakers directed the commission to develop these rules during the 2012 Legislature. The commission also adopted rules that become effective Jan. 1, 2013, that will allow a person age 8 and older to participate in a mentored hunting program without being required to hold a hunter education certificate.

Hot weather pushes bigger fish into deeper holes
The Baltimore Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As the weather warms we must look to the deeper holes to find big fish. Larger fish will stay in these deep pools where the water is cooler until the sun starts to set. Only then will they move out into the shallows to feed, so anglers using artificial baits will find early morning and late evening the best times to fish. More
