Deer disease kills thousands weeks before hunting season
WSBT-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A disease is killing thousands of deer in Michiana and many sportsmen are wondering what effect this will have on hunting season, which starts next week. "I've talked to guys that have game cameras full of pictures of deer. Then I'm getting guys that aren't getting so many," said Ryan Purlee, store manager at Lunker's in Edwardsburg, Mich. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources said that 4,200 dead deer have been reported across two dozen counties. More

Nevada waterfowl hunting season looks promising
The Associated Press via San Francisco Chronicle    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Wetland conditions in northern Nevada remain favorable to migrating waterfowl and could bring a promising hunting season, state wildlife biologists said. The conditions follow a botulism outbreak last year that killed nearly 3,000 ducks and other birds in Nevada. The 2012 drought has led to stagnant water and favorable conditions for disease. But with the exception of some isolated incidents, outbreaks this year have been scarce, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported. Waterfowl hunting season opens Oct. 13. More

Disease testing required for game returning with Washington hunters
The Spokesman-Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Washington hunters returning with game from Wyoming or 16 others states and some Canadian provinces must have the meat and trophies properly processed to prevent possible spread of chronic wasting disease. CWD has been found in wild deer populations in Texas and Missouri in the past year, bringing the number of states with verified cases to 17. The others states where CWD has been detected include Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin, as well as the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Outdoors: Beware of UV brighteners when deer hunting
Battle Creek Enquirer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you are a deer hunter, an ultraviolet light should be your best friend. For as long as companies have been manufacturing camouflage hunting duds, they've been using UV brighteners to make their clothing stand out to consumers. And you can't wash UV brighteners out of clothing — ever. While some of today's new camouflage doesn't contain UV brighteners, a lot still does. And it's only by putting the clothing under a UV light, or black light, that you'll see the tell-tale glow of UV brighteners. But, deer only see two colors, and they can detect ultraviolet light.

Hunters active but Canada geese thrive in Minnesota
The Associated Press via New England Cable News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The population of Canada geese appears to be increasing in Minnesota even as hunters in the state have been more aggressive about killing the birds, state wildlife officials said. The state Department of Natural Resources estimates there were 434,000 Canada geese in the state this spring, well above the department's population goal of 250,000, according to a St. Paul Pioneer Press report. Last year, Minnesota hunters killed nearly 239,000 Canada geese, compared to about 181,000 mallards harvested. Even with those numbers, along with the margins of error in counting bird populations, DNR manager Steve Cordts said there's little doubt about one thing: "The population is increasing again." More

Fish hunters use pitchforks, water skis to hunt Asian carp
ABC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Eric Young cruised the Illinois River hunting the high-jumping Asian carp, while armed with a pitchfork and wearing a protective football helmet. These greedy, hungry, flying-fish torpedoes are threatening to invade the Great Lakes, slapping fisherman along the way as the leap out of the water at the sound of boat motors. Viewers might recognize him as "Showtime" Eric Young when he anchored down in the ring as a pro-wrestler, but now he has set sail for a whole new challenge. From Florida to California, Young is adrift in the world of extreme fishing, learning all of the bizarre ways to snag the big one — such as using paddleboards to reel in sharks or to freedive spear-fishing for striped bass — on Animal Planet's TV series, "Off the Hook: Extreme Catches."

Grizzly bites elk hunter southeast of Ennis, Mont.
Billings Gazette via The Missoulian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A Pennsylvania man calling elk while archery hunting recently with his wife southeast of Ennis, Mont., in the Madison Range called in a grizzly bear instead. The man, who wasn't identified in a Fish, Wildlife and Parks press release, was cow calling with his wife about 25 yards away. They were set up along Indian Creek Trail in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. When the hunter heard some rustling in the brush about 15 yards away, he looked up to find a grizzly bear staring at him. The grizzly, a female with two cubs, bit the hunter on the arm and head before running away. The man suffered no life-threatening injuries. More

Julie Geiser: Public lands offer good hunting opportunities
North Platte Telegraph    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Many hunters will be out looking for places to hunt this fall and winter. Those that do not own land or know landowners will be in search of places to hunt. No matter what type of game you hunt, public lands offer great hunting opportunities. It is best to locate good hunting spots and contact landowners for permission to hunt prior to opening day, but often hunters don't get that done and spend a lot of time trying to find a place to go at the last minute.
