Lawmaker, DNR push for Michigan wolf hunt
The Daily Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Legislative efforts have begun to allow wolves to be hunted in Michigan, with a bill introduced by state Rep. Matt Huuki, R-Atlantic Mine — an idea supported by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Huuki's bill, H.B. 5834, recently was introduced and was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources, Tourism and Outdoor Recreation.

The Michigan Natural Resources Commission is authorized to issue orders and establish a gray wolf hunting season throughout the state under the bill. More

So how do you know when election season has arrived? You start hearing the words "hunting" and "fishing" coming out of the mouths of the politicians (and their staffs) hoping to get elected. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has been a frequent source of sound bites concerning the recent release of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's 2011 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation. That survey offered some encouraging news: Hunting and fishing participation in the United States has grown. The survey reports about a nine percent increase in the number of hunters and an 11 percent increase in the number of anglers. About 38 percent of all Americans participated in some sort of outdoors-related recreation. More

Utah's general archery buck deer hunt started Aug. 18, and hunters can expect to see a good number of young bucks. The Division of Wildlife Resources says lots of fawns were born in 2011, and most of them survived the winter of 2011-2012.

Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Animal rights groups say using dogs fitted with electronic tracking devices to hunt bears and bobcats is cruel and unfair and should be outlawed in California. Hunting bears with hounds is banned in 14 states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Montana, Oklahoma, Oregon and Wyoming. A bill that would ban the hound hunting has been approved by the state Senate and is headed with momentum toward the Assembly floor. Along the way, it has illuminated a deep cultural divide in California. More

David Dirks: Kayaks open up broad, new vistas for hunters, anglers
Times Herald-Record    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A growing number of anglers and hunters now are using the kayak instead of the traditional johnboat or motorboat. With a slim profile, kayaks have an inherent stealthiness, which plays well to angling and hunting. They are lightweight and easier for one person to manage on and off the water. Kayaks are also economical and a "green" alternative to using motorized boat. More
