A stern warning: Never assume your rifle, scope will work
Field & Stream    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Now that hunting season is here, many of us are tempted to grab our trusted smokepoles and head for the fields and forests. But what your trusted smokepole may hand you, rather than a dead animal, is a sharp rap in the nuts, metaphorically speaking, of course. You never, ever, assume that a rifle/scope will work. More

Mash the potatoes, it's turkey hunting time
Pocono Record    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The pursuit of a wild turkey for Thanksgiving, or any other dinner for that matter, creates a special draw for some. It might be the chance to relive a part of history, or it may just be the challenge of hunting this wild American bird that happens to be delicious on the table. Whatever your reason for taking to the woods in search of a turkey dinner, the season is almost here. More

Iowa pheasant hunting woes continue
Journal Express    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Iowa can no longer call itself the No. 1 pheasant hunting state. The title has most likely been handed off to South Dakota, said Kurt Baker, director of the Wapello County Conservation Board. More

Year of extreme weather takes toll on hunting outlook in parts of Missouri and Kansas
Miami Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Quivira National Wildlife Refuge in central Kansas looks more like a desert these days than a nationally known wetlands complex. Ordinarily, the basins would be teeming with water, inviting migrating birds such as ducks, geese, sandhill cranes and even whooping cranes, an endangered species, to stop. Not this year. More

Arizona bulls    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Many bowhunters dream about killing a monster bull elk and one of the first states that usually comes to mind is Arizona. The Grand Canyon State is known for having some of the largest bulls in the country. As a result, drawing a tag in the state is extremely difficult and can take a decade or more to be successful in drawing a tag, especially in the units known for holding world class bulls. More

Taxidermy is making an unexpected comeback and in some of the strangest places
The Scotsman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Late on a muggy Edinburgh morning, in his laboratory in Granton, Phil Howard is bringing a Harris hawk back to life. Or rather, to put it more accurately, he is creating the appearance of life in a bird long dead. This is his great skill. Howard is an illusionist, a resurrectionist; more plainly, a taxidermist.

Huge deer are in the eye of the beholder
Deer & Deer Hunting    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Facebook post was a definite cause for celebration. A friend had just posted a photo of a whitetail buck he had shot. He had been bow hunting, and shot a beautiful 6-point buck. I was one of the first people to "like" the post. Several others had also posted complimentary comments. Oh, but of course, it didn't take long for the naysayers to start chiming in. More

One-armed boy hunter, 11, bags first deer
The Associated Press via Boston Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Justin Ristine, 11, might be the best one-armed hunter around. If ability is judged by percentage of shots fired compared to deer taken, he’s as good a hunter as there is, one arm or two. On his first hunting trip earlier this month, he fired one shot and bagged one deer. The buck died instantly. More

Blind man goes on first duck hunt    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A month prior to our annual group teal hunt this September, I seriously considered canceling it, writes Chad Waligura. Had it not been for two special people coming from out-of-state, one of them our first blind hunter from North Dakota, I might’ve. Carey McWilliams was coming to give me my chance to make history. Not only would he be my first blind hunter, he'd be going on his first ever duck hunt and this would be the first documented wingshooting hunt for ducks & doves for a "non-seeing" person that I'd ever heard about.

Fall turkey hunting tactics
American Hunter    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
With the phenomenal spread of wild turkey populations into areas where they had not been seen for generations, turkey hunting enjoyed a remarkable resurgence in popularity beginning in the late 1980s and 1990s. Turkey numbers were on the rise thanks to conservation efforts and the birds' resiliency to adapt to new environments, and manufacturers responded to the growing opportunities and inevitable interest by developing more and better products geared specifically for the sport.
