Waterfowl hunting: How to run traffic on ducks and geese
Outdoor Life
Kyle Wintersteen, of Outdoor Life magazine, writes: "The opening-day optimism was palpable as my watch struck 6:48 a.m. My buddy and I had drawn a good public-land blind, the scouting report was solid, and it seemed like only a matter of time until we'd be enjoying mallard tenderloin. The birds arrived right on schedule and made a beeline for us. I offered them a greeting call. Here they came. Guns were readied ... and the mallards cupped to a blind 500 yards away. Three ducks smacked the water before the shotgun reports reached our ears. And so it continued. Gadwalls, teal, more mallards and even a few pintails skirted us en route to a neighboring blind. I don't need to kill ducks to enjoy a morning of hunting, but having to watch someone else shoot ducks? That's just cruel."

Union leaders call for veto of California lead ammo ban
Outdoor Hub
On the desk of California Gov. Jerry Brown is a host of firearm-related bills, including a controversial ban on lead ammunition for hunting. Many critics believe that the bill will be a de facto ban on hunting, which is exactly why many sportsmen's associations oppose AB 711. According to a press release from Californians for Conservation, several union leaders and their organizations are now lending their voice to the fight and calling on Brown to veto the bill.

Why don't more hunters use 9.3x62mm Mauser cartridges?
By John McAdams
Today I want to discuss a lesser known, yet potent and versatile hunting cartridge: the 9.3x62mm Mauser. While relatively popular in southern Africa and Europe, relatively few hunters in the United States utilize this outstanding cartridge, usually relying on the more common .375 H&H Magnum instead when hunting large and dangerous game. While the .375 H&H is an outstanding cartridge, the 9.3x62mm can provide 85-95 percent of the power with less recoil and with the added bonus of being able to fit in a rifle with a standard-length action.

Trophy bull elk found dead, poaching suspected
WSF
New Mexico Department of Game and Fish conservation officer KC Gehrt recovered a dead, world-class, bull elk outside of Reserve, N.M., Sept. 4. Poaching is suspected. Hunters discovered the rotting, but completely intact, elk carcass in a canyon, a mile and a half east of Little Round Mountain. Hunters in the area last saw the massive elk alive Sept. 1. "It's stealing," hunter Jeff Lewis said. "The state lost a huge amount. That's a once in a lifetime bull." Lewis and his hunting partner Don Roach had been tracking and shooting video of the enormous elk for three years.

Hunting Alaska: DIY Dall Sheep in the Brooks Range
Outdoor Life
Tyler Freel, a contributor for Outdoor Life, writes: "Over the past several sheep seasons, my buddies Steve, Gary, Tim and I have worked ourselves into a groove of relatively easy success, at least by sheep hunting standards. We've had good weather and conditions conducive to limiting out on sheep and being back at the air strip with several days to spare. Our most recent trip, however, taxed us for all of the good sheep hunts we've enjoyed."

Montana bowhunter bags mountain goat, husband and magazine cover
The Billings Gazette
When Kelsie Erickson Burford bagged her billy with a bow last fall on her first goat hunt, she felt both humbled and honored. Little did she realize the experience would get even better. She also bagged her Johnny — as in Johnny Burford, her longtime boyfriend who proposed to her after they caped out and deboned the meat. As an added bonus, the overall experience ended up with her as the first ever camouflage cover girl on Eastmans' Bowhunting Journal.

Fishing for fall river Walleyes
Outdoor Hub
Across the Midwest, many anglers are putting their open water fishing gear away. Some are going hunting, others are getting ready to go ice fishing. However, there are some, probably more than you would think, that look forward to this time of year for open water fishing. They know that right now, in rivers throughout the region, there are lots of opportunities to catch walleyes. In fact, a very knowledgeable river angler recently told me that the period between Nov. 15 and Dec. 15 is his favorite time to catch walleyes. Here are some tips for getting in on this action.
