West Virginia wildlife officials say a late-summer outbreak of an often-fatal deer disease has killed hundreds of Mountain State whitetails. Jim Crum, deer project leader for the state Division of Natural Resources, said hunters and landowners have been finding carcasses of deer killed by epizootic hemorrhagic disease. "This year's EHD outbreak is not nearly as prevalent or widespread as the one we had in 2007," Crum said. EHD, caused by a particular species of biting aquatic insect called a "midge," often occurs during the late stages of a hot, dry summer. More

Hunting heats up across the US
CNN    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Interest in hunting and fishing is on the rise, and autumn is prime season for getting outside and up close to your food. The number of recreational hunters and anglers in the United States significantly has increased over the past five years, according to a recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey. The number of hunters has increased by 9 percent, while the number of anglers has jumped by 11 percent. Although hunting has always been a way for self-sufficient people to feed their families, another theory for its current popularity is that it also can also be an affordable "staycation" for people trying to spend less in a poor economy.

The Associated Press via Grand View Outdoors    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Louis Dakil says the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation should close quail season. The owner of Dakil Auctioneers in Oklahoma City fears that bobwhite quail are traveling down the same path of the lesser prairie chicken and will be vanishing from the prairie. "I have been hunting 44 years and I have never seen it this bad," Dakil said. "We are at a very critical point right now, I think." More

Oklahoma bear hunters taking advantage of no-limit season
The Oklahoman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The theory that bear hunters would be more selective with a guaranteed three weeks of hunting this season didn't pan out. Oklahoma's black bear archery season recently opened in southeastern Oklahoma, and hunters had killed 32 bears in the first two days. In Oklahoma's previous black bear hunting seasons, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation placed an overall limit on the number of bears that could be killed at 20. That led to one- and two-day seasons as hunters arrowed the first bear that walked by. This year, the 20-bear limit was ended, guaranteeing a three-week season. More

Jerry Brown recently announced signing that relate to the state Department of Fish and Game. Another changes the composition of the California Fish and Game Commission in the wake of a controversy over the former commission president's killing of a mountain lion in Idaho.

Hunting, fishing boost Wyoming economy
Wyoming Business Report    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For about 13 years, Pennsylvania resident Tim Acklin has made the journey west to hunt and fish in Wyoming. From Riverton and Jackson to Buffalo and Gillette, Acklin has hunted elk, deer and antelope in Wyoming and enjoys the scenery and slower pace the state has to offer. Acklin is not alone, each year roughly 100,000 nonresidents hunting and fishing licenses are issued, accounting for about 76 percent of Wyoming's license-related revenues. As they travel throughout the state, they, like Acklin, spend money at Wyoming businesses. In 2011, roughly $2.9 billion was spent by visitors to the state. More
