National Hunting and Fishing Day this Saturday    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Washington hunters and anglers will be joining other outdoorsmen and women all over the map this Saturday to observe the 40th anniversary of National Hunting and Fishing Day, created by Congress and signed into law in 1972 by President Richard Nixon. It falls right in the midst of early grouse hunting, bowhunting and the tail end of the high mountain early buck hunt, and if the weather continues to hold, it will be shirt sleeve weather. The observance raises public awareness of the contributions hunters and anglers make to the outdoors, through license and tag fees, matching contributions from various conservation organizations and countless hours of volunteer work.

Public News Service    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Boots, bullets and guns translate into millions of dollars for southwest Montana. An analysis of six years of data from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks shows big game hunting is a multimillion dollar recreation industry in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest region. Hunting expenditures even rose during the recession and elk bring in the biggest bucks. The economic footprint in the region totaled a bit more than $30 million dollars in 2011. It was $26 million in 2006. More

Anglers want snapper limits raised in Gulf of Mexico as fish population recovers
Houston Chronicle    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Gulf of Mexico is teeming with red snapper again after decades in decline, but many anglers are wondering why they are not allowed to catch more. The conundrum is gripping Texas and other Gulf states after the shortest-ever season for the prized species. The run ended in July after only 46 days as part of a federal effort to rebuild a population that nearly was wiped out in the 1980s by overfishing. Now, recreational anglers frustrated at being told to pull their lines so soon when the stock appears healthy want changes in the way the fishery is managed. More

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says the online system called CheckIN Game allows hunters to report their game from the convenience of their home or directly in the field. DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife Director Mark Reiter says the free online system is a big step forward in giving hunters more options to check in their game. More

USDA works with Central New York property owners to hunt wild boars
The Post-Standard    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Tom Dickinson said before U.S. Department of Agriculture officials got involved, he never knew exactly how many wild boars were on his family’s property in Spafford, N.Y. A three-person team of workers from the USDA, led by Justin Gansowski, a wildlife disease biologist, used a combination of trapping and hunting over bait to take out 20 wild boars on the Dickinson's property. They averaged 100 to 120 pounds in weight, he said. Feral swine, which are described as "Bad News for New York" in the new state Department of Environmental Conservation's hunting handbook, are a harmful and destructive invasive species. More

Claiborne Progress    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What was supposed to be a Christmas-like day for hunters turned into anger and frustration when they went to the mailbox and pulled out their quota hunt permits for Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area in Tennessee. After finding out that he or she was successful in obtaining a permit, it quickly was very shocking to see the dreaded special instructions at the top of the permit. The permit, which normally was issued as a bonus to the statewide limit, now seemed to count directly toward a deer hunter's statewide limit. Many hunters in Tennessee are asking how and why this could happen. More

Dogs show off their hunting training, skills
LaCrosse Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
That dog won't hunt, the old saying goes, but here's a case in which the owner didn't hunt — until the dog trained her to. "I did it backwards," Kim Buchanan of Onalaska, Wis., said at a recent Coulee Region Hunting Dog Challenge. "I didn't start hunting until I got a golden retriever and discovered he loved to chase things." So Buchanan indulged Mac's retrieval instincts, and they both became hunters when she was 35. "I'm one of those unusual folks who started late," the 57-year-old Buchanan said as her 3-year-old chocolate Labrador, Rufus, sat patiently at her feet. More
