Hunting season brings cash windfall to states
MSN Money    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Depending on where you live in the United States, deer hunting season is either wrapping up, starting this week or already in full swing. But no matter where you are in the season, observers say it's been a good year for the hunting industry. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, there was a 9 percent increase in the number of hunters last year compared with 2006. And if seen as an economic sector, those hunters have a significant financial impact. More



Ground blinds provide great cover for deer hunting
Grand View Outdoors    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There's no question Rick White would prefer to be up in a tree when he's chasing his favorite game animal. Elevation affords him a better view of his surroundings and keeps his scent up off the ground. But sometimes the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, resident just doesn't have that option. Contrary to what many hunters think, a ground blind won't make you invisible, and it won't contain your scent. In fact, the blind itself likely will have its own unnatural odors. Arguably, it's impossible to mask all odors, but White will spray his blinds — and himself — with Hunter’s Specialties Scent-Away each time he puts out a blind. More

Hunters bagged a record number of deer during Kentucky's modern gun season, which recently ended. "The 92,737 deer reported taken is a new record, surpassing the previous record of 87,205 set in 2004," said Tina Brunjes, deer and elk program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "That's what happens when you get good hunting weather all three weekends of the season. No rain, no snow. It's the first time that's happened since I came here in 2005." More

Nile croc hunted near Miami as potential danger
The Associated Press via seattlepi.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
State wildlife officials have given their agents a rare order to shoot to kill in the hunt for a young and potentially dangerous Nile crocodile loose near Miami. The Nile crocodile, which hails from Africa, can jump higher, run faster and grow to nearly 20 feet, several feet larger than its American cousin, and has a nastier temperament. And while the American crocodile stays near saltwater like mangroves and estuaries, the Nile crocodile prefers freshwater, making it more likely to come in contact with humans and domestic animals.

Bears show signs of comeback in northeast Alabama
The Associated Press via Grand View Outdoors    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Scientists have one more piece of evidence to support a notion that the black bear population is on the rise in northeast Alabama. An image of a bear with a shiny coat of black fur was captured in November by a motion-activated camera in the Nances Creek area, said Robert Carter, a Jacksonville State University biology professor. The image was sent via email to Carter, who studies the black bear population in and around the Talladega National Forest. More

Wyoming lawmakers to decide on silencers for hunting rifles
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the woods and on the plains of Wyoming, one traditional hunting sound may soon be headed toward extinction: gunshots. State lawmakers are set to decide whether to allow silencers on hunting guns, a move that has divided the outdoor-oriented state. Proponents say screwing a muzzle onto a firearm to catch the blast and muffle the report will prevent hearing damage and reduce noise pollution. Many opponents insist silencers for hunting weapons gives hunters in the woods an unsporting advantage with yet another high-tech gadget against game species whose defenses have always been only their alertness and ability to run away. An interim Wyoming legislative committee recently endorsed a bill to end the state's prohibition on hunting with silencers. More

Florida guide uses hunting as rustic therapy for combat veterans
NBCNews.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the swamps and river bottoms near his Florida ranch, outfitter Danny SantAngelo has spent 20 years guiding veterans — some without arms, legs or sight — back to soothingly familiar country: in the field, stalking live prey, armed with weapons. Often, such group hunting excursions were contract jobs that SantAngelo accepted from what he calls "these big, million-dollar-a-year projects for wounded soldiers." For SantAngelo, however, that changed three years ago when, during one outing, he spotted a veteran hunter with tears in his eyes. More
