Oct. 4 was the final deadline for species specific proposals for CITES 16th Conference of the Parties, being held March 3-15 in Bangkok. The game mammals proposed for transfer of Appendix are the white rhino, elephant, polar bear and the Pyrenean Chamois — not the African lion, the Zambia elephant, the Pacific walrus or the narwhal, nor is there any Southern African white rhino proposal. In short, Kenya has proposed establishing a zero quota on hunting trophies and live trade of white rhino from South Africa and Swaziland for six years. More

The group's brief is in support of a lawsuit filed in August against the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Natural Resources Board. The lawsuit seeks to stop the DNR from authorizing the use of dogs to hunt wolves without the regulations necessary to "prevent deadly confrontations between dogs and wolves." More

International Paper is giving the state of Louisiana two reservoirs that are popular recreational sites near Bastrop, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said. The Bussey Brake reservoir is on a 2,600-acre site and the Wham Brake reservoir on about 5,500 acres. The company, which closed its Bastrop mill in 2009, impounded both areas in the 1950s. The donation will preserve them for future generations, said IP Senior Vice President Tommy Joseph.

The East-Central Zone was closed several days ago when the harvest reached eight wolves. The target harvest for that zone is nine. More

But over the decades since the 1970s, as farms have wooded over or sprouted crops of houses and businesses, the "bob-WHITE" call has faded and in places disappeared. Through state and federal programs, however, Smith and his family are restoring quail-friendly native grasslands on their 550-acre Craig County farm. More
