Wisconsin DNR wants to grow elk population
The Associated Press via The Chippewa Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Wisconsin wildlife officials have resurrected plans to grow the state's elk population, raising hopes for a hunt and more tourism dollars. The Department of Natural Resources has wanted to expand a herd in Ashland County and start a second herd in Jackson County since the 1990s. The agency ran into a roadblock, though, when agriculture officials clamped down on deer and elk importation after chronic wasting disease turned up in the state a decade ago. Now the department apparently has located healthy elk in Kentucky and has started talks about bringing some to Wisconsin. More

Maine bear-hunting season set to get under way
The Associated Press via WCSH-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The black bear population is seen as healthy as hunting seasons draw close in northern New England. In Maine, game officials predict a successful one for many hunters because of poor natural food levels that have brought many bears foraging out in the open. That increases chances for hunters who use bait. Maine has the largest black bear population in the East, estimated 25,000 to 30,000, the largest in six decades. More

Hawaii woman reels in half-ton marlin after fighting for 4 hours
The Associated Press via The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A Hawaii tournament fisher fought a 12-foot, half-ton marlin in the Pacific Ocean for more than four hours before she and her teammates got the monster fish out of the water — but she missed out on the glory and thousands of dollars in prize money. Molly Palmer, 28, would have needed to reel in the fish by herself in order for it to qualify as a valid catch for the tournament, according to rules set by the International Game Fishing Association. But her team helped her pull the massive marlin aboard — so all the Kailua-Kona angler got was a fish story. More

Bison numbers up, hunting could expand in Wyoming
The Associated Press via Casper Star-Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Wyoming may expand bison hunting because the state's population is above management goals. A proposal by state Rep. Keith Gingery, R-Jackson, would end the once-in-a-lifetime rule for harvesting bison cows and replace it with a once-every-five-year rule. His draft legislation also proposes lowering the cost of a cow bison license for nonresidents from $2,500 to $1,000. More

The Oklahoman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For many Oklahoma hunters, mourning doves are the best things to come out of Kansas. Bridging the gap between summer's heat and the start of fall's big-game hunting seasons, the annual migration of these game birds marks the beginning of the finest time of year for sportsmen and women across the state with its smell of burnt shot-shell powder and doves frying in the skillet.

Joseph Myers: Tips to change effective range in bowhunting
Ledger Enquirer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you want to stir up a debate among bowhunters, ask what the term "effective range" means. You're liable to get five answers from five hunters. Most people think it's the distance you can shoot a tight group of arrows that will all result in a quick killing shot, and the grouping used to be about as big around as a paper plate. Now, with the advent of better technology that allows hunters to group their shots in a smaller space, effective range has changed to where the shot groupings are much tighter and at much farther distances.
