Montana hunter bags a ranked bighorn
The Western News
Whitefish, Mont., hunter Glen Prestegaard recently shot a bighorn ram ranked by the Safari Club International record book as No. 3 in the world for muzzleloader hunting. Prestegaard took the ram on public land near Plains, Mont., during a self-guided trip. Prestegaard scouted the area, flew over the mountains by helicopter, then hiked with his black-powder muzzleloader for "many days" before spotting a big ram several miles away.

Dallas Safari Club's auction of black rhino hunt draws praise, criticism
Dallas Morning News
The Dallas Safari Club has created an international debate over its plans to auction a hunt for a black rhinoceros, a species listed as endangered by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. Wildlife experts estimate about 5,000 black rhinos roam the wilds of Africa, 1,795 of them in Namibia, where the auction hunt will be. The Convention on International Trade has approved a sport-hunting quota of five black rhinos annually in Namibia and five in South Africa. Permits are typically issued to a safari outfitter, who sells them to hunting clients.

Hunter saves life of buck as anniversary of accident approaches
The Ledger Independent
Four years after a hunting accident landed him in the hospital for an extended period, Caleb Mullikin found a way to pass along the mercy that helped him recover from his injuries. Every year, Mullikin takes two weeks of vacation from his job in order to spend some time bow hunting. "I've been hunting since I was about 7-years-old," Mullikin said. "It's something I like to do and every year, I take some vacation time to do it." This year, the avid hunter actually saved the life of a buck.

Unlike us, rainbow trout don't mind the cold; go forth and fish
KyForward
Unlike us, rainbow trout don't mind the cold. They bite willingly all year long. Trout strike baits fished through holes in the ice on lakes and in mountainous streams ringed with ice along their banks in the dead of winter. They laugh at this little bit of unpleasant weather.

Hunting lease etiquette and expectations
The Eagle
Farmers and ranchers respect and protect their land in ways that might be lost to more urban oriented city folks. It is not as clear as it once was when it comes to good manners and etiquette in the sport of hunting or in dealing with landowners and hunters (people) in general.

Cold water means fall anglers, hunters must think of safety
Toledo Blade
With a lot of fishermen still out on the lake as large groups of walleye are migrating back to the western basin, and waterfowl hunters working the rivers and the marshes as waves of ducks and geese dot the sky, fall can be a very productive time in the outdoors. But it is also a time when the stakes get much higher for the angler or the hunter who finds themselves in the water unexpectedly.

Bad Taxidermy
Polk Outdoors
Ian Nance, writes for Polk Outdoors: "Taxidermy is a demanding skill so it's no real wonder that disasters strike from time to time. I've never given it a whirl, but I have finer motor skills appropriate for, say, post hole diggers but lack the finer touch for the detail required to cape a deer or hog or duck. I'm pretty sure I'd end up posted online under bad taxidermy. And that's what I'm suggesting here — go ahead and Google 'Bad Taxidermy' and see what pops up. It's good stuff."
