10 intense portraits reveal the real faces of America's taxidermists
The Huffington Post
It's easy to gloss over the world of taxidermy, pigeonholing the people who practice the craft as morbid morticians of the animal kingdom. Photographer Mike McGregor would disagree with you, however. He's spent a significant amount of time photographing America's taxidermy community, capturing portraits of the men and women who prepare, stuff and mount the carcass of deceased creatures in a series titled "Preserve." Far from finding the off-kilter artists gruesome or even macabre, McGregor sees the dark beauty in their obsessions, revealing the tender, intricate care involved in a practice many misunderstand.

Whitetail vision: Shedding light on deer eyesight
Outdoor Hub
The general consensus years ago was that whitetails had super vision — they could pick out the slightest movement at great distances and their eyes could bore a hole right through you. But they were colorblind. That's right, they lived in a world of black and white and shades of gray. These beliefs have been proven wrong. Research conducted at the University of Washington and the University of Georgia has revealed some remarkable things about deer vision. They dissected the eyes of deer and looked at them through high-powered microscopes. This revealed some very interesting findings about the differences between the eyes of predators and prey.

Fishing lessons from a master blade runner
Outdoor Hub
One of the best fall lures for fooling a variety of fish is one of the simplest: the blade bait. Consisting of little more than a metal head or belly molded to a thin blade stamped into the profile of a baitfish, blade baits are easy to fish, can catch any gamefish that likes to eat minnows, and are particularly productive when water temperatures begin to drop in the fall — or rise in the spring.
