NSSF reports major milestone for families afield — 1 million new hunters
Outdoor Hub
The future of hunting is brighter today than it was nearly a decade ago thanks to the extraordinary success of Families Afield, an innovative program that has introduced 1 million newcomers to hunting. This impressive number demonstrates that interest in hunting remains high and that what's needed to spark a lifelong passion for hunting is a proper introduction enabled by state regulations. With success in hand, Families Afield's call to action is this: If your state offers an apprentice hunting license, make it a point to bring a newcomer along this hunting season; or if you’ve never gone hunting before, seek out a mentor and give it a try.

The meat-eating habits of deer
Outdoor Hub
Many people may not know that deer, like some other herbivores, eat meat from time to time. It's hard to imagine these creatures as steak-seeking predators, but deer will be quick to take advantage of a nutritious opportunity. Biologists say that this behavior is uncommon and rarely is deer depredation documented. Still, the deer don't exactly keep it a secret. "Some of these animals really are omnivorous," U.S. Geological Survey biologist Pam Pietz reported all the way back in 1998.

The dangers of deer cloning
Outdoor Life
A pair of Texans recently announced that they had successfully cloned a whitetail deer. It seems they have been cloning horses for the past few years (much to the dismay The American Quarter Horse Association who refused to register them) and are now expanding into captive deer. Deer cloning is not new news, Texas A&M University cloned their first whitetail back in 2003 and numerous clones are now in existence. What's news here is, deer breeders are beginning to realize that they have another tool to use in their obsessive pursuit of massive antlers and they are beginning to show plenty of interest.

Hunting prospects vary in Wyoming this fall
The Sacramento Bee
This fall could be a tale of two hunting seasons. Some animals in the northern half of the state look strong and healthy from a wet spring and green summer. At the same time, hunters may see animals in the southwestern portion suffering the effects of a drought that won't quit. "Our antelope fawn production is just a touch better than last year, and last year was horrible," said Green River, Wyo., game warden Duane Kerr. "Last year we had less than 30 fawns for every 100 does (in one herd) and this year is just a couple of points better than that. It takes at least 50 fawns for 100 does to keep the population from shrinking."

Rapid City Journal
Thanks to modern technology that can keep students connected with their classes even when they aren't on campus, a Chadron State College coed was able to accompany her parents on a hunting trek to Africa during most of the first two weeks of the current school year. Tomilyn Trask of Wasta, S.D., was in Namibia, a triangle-shaped country in southwestern Africa, when classes began on Aug. 23. She didn't attend her first classes until the last week of August.

Lessons from an early season trophy
Field & Stream
Labor Day weekend marked the kickoff of most Western whitetail archery seasons, but the majority of hunters won't even take the field until November. Out West, distractions come in the form of mule deer, elk, antelope, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and more. In Washington, whitetails take a back seat until November, when the rut starts in earnest. Until then, many whitetail hunters will be content to fish for a record run of Columbia River Chinook salmon or to pursue a range of fish and game species before taking the field for whitetails.
