The Associated Press via The Argus Leader    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Would-be wolf hunters are lining up for a shot at an elusive prey this fall, when Minnesota plans to open its first season since the gray wolf came off the endangered species list. The state received 23,477 applications for the 6,000 permits that it will issue via lottery system. Department of Natural Resources spokesman Chris Niskanen said all but a few hundred applicants are from Minnesota, but people from 33 states filed paperwork. The season was set in motion after gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan came off the endangered list in January. Wisconsin also has approved a hunt, though litigation might delay it.

Bow hunting approved for deer in Kane County, Ill., preserves
Daily Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
People will be allowed to hunt deer, with bows and arrows, in two Kane County, Ill., forest preserves this fall. The hunting is meant to reduce a white-tailed deer population district staff says is excessive at Brunner Family and Freeman Kame-Meagher Farm forest preserves in Dundee and Rutland townships. The two preserves are among a list of about a dozen where the district thinks the deer population could become too high. An overabundance of deer damages the preserves, as they overgraze on plants and trees, including wildflowers the district is trying to restore. More

Coyotes are getting ugly, and destructive in Onslow County, N.C. The wild animals, known livestock killers, also are eating into farm crops, especially watermelons, local agriculture officials said. The problem is so bad that the N.C. Wildlife Commission recently authorized nighttime hunting. "Coyotes have been killing farmers' calves, goats and sheep; but recently I have heard growers claim that they are eating produce," said Melissa Huffman, an agent with the N.C. State University's Cooperative Extension in Onslow County. More

Austin American-Statesman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nobody knows exactly how many hogs are in Texas, but the number almost certainly is in the millions. Pigs are survivors. Trapping, shooting and drought don't seem to reduce their numbers except locally and then only for a short time. They have become a nuisance in and around cities, and wildlife biologists statewide are working with landowners to develop plans to control them. More

The Augusta Chronicle    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If football and dove season haven't already gotten your attention, the opening of Georgia's archery season is a sign that autumn is close. Last year, 118,500 bow and crossbow hunters harvested more than 68,000 deer in a season that extends this year through Oct. 12. "Archery season offers excellent deer hunting opportunities and a chance to bag a quality buck," said assistant game management chief John Bowers. "Georgia has more than 1 million acres of public land and has had 460 Georgia bucks accepted into the Pope and Young Club." Georgia's rising numbers of record-book bucks also makes it a top destination for non-resident hunters, he said. More

Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you love to hunt ducks and geese and have been doing so for years, then you probably already know you can't always wait for the birds to come to you. Heck, in some years — just last fall in many parts of the country — they won't come to you at all. Or if they do, it's after the season has closed. So sometimes you have to go to them.
