Ohio seeks input on new wildlife rules
The Columbus Dispatch    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Open houses — not always the usual order of business at this time of year — will be held Saturday at the Ohio Division of Wildlife district offices. Chief Scott Zody and his staff will be seeking public input on a number of proposed rules that affect hunters and fishermen. Similar open houses are held annually in March. "Ohio's anglers, hunters, trappers and wildlife enthusiast are encouraged to provide their input on any rule being considered for change," Zody said in a statement. Some of the rules, on which the Ohio Wildlife Council is scheduled to vote at its October meeting, involve fallout from recently enacted legislation — House Bill 389 — that governs wild-animal hunting preserves, commercial bird-shooting preserves and the raising of white-tailed deer and other cervids, including elk.

Dispute breaks out over hunters' access to Maryland public lands
The Daily Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A leafy expanse of southwestern Worcester County that was once a timber operation is now in the crosshairs of a debate between state forestry officials and hunters over public access. The Maryland Forest Service has proposed opening the 4,800-acre property beginning with this fall's hunting season to anyone with a hunting permit. The change would create the largest tract open to public hunting in the Chesapeake Forest, a collection of more than 200 woodsy parcels scattered like buckshot across five Eastern Shore counties.

Indiana readies for squirrel-hunting season
Journal Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Indiana's squirrel season begins soon. Aug. 15 is the start of Hoosierland's fall and winter hunting season, a few of which will not end until a month or two into 2013. Squirrels, both fox and gray, are somewhat dependent on forest tree fruit for their food supply. Given the dry weather we have experienced since last summer, hickories and black walnut may not produce an abundant crop — if any. Oak acorns and beechnuts will probably be in very short supply. However, any one forested area may differ from one just a few mile away. The amount of rainfall received will be the deciding factor. More

Duck hunting could be fantastic this year
South Bend Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Farmers aren't the only ones praying for rain. Waterfowl hunters may be on the brink of one of the best seasons in a long time — if we get rain. A lot of rain. Duck forecasters predict a lot of birds this year, but unless Michiana marshes and potholes refill before fall, the birds are going to crowd into areas where water does exist. Good for the guys who hunt there, but bad for those who like to hunt elsewhere smaller areas. "If things get wet between now and October, we should have a great season," said Adam Phelps, Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife waterfowl biologist. More

South Dakota panel proposes boost in mountain lion hunting
The Associated Press via New England Cable News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A state panel has proposed a mountain lion hunting season that would give South Dakota hunters more time to shoot more of the big cats next winter. The Game, Fish and Parks Commission gradually has been gradually increasing the number of mountain lions that can be shot in an effort to reduce the population in the Black Hills and protect elk and deer that serve as the lions' prey. During a recent meeting in Milbank, it proposed allowing hunters to shoot 30 more lions than last year during a season running from Dec. 26 to March 31. The season would end early if 100 lions were killed or if 70 females were killed. More
