200 bears killed on first day of New Jersey black bear hunt
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Wildlife officials estimate that 200 bears were killed on the first day of the state's black bear hunt. State officials have said the six-day hunt is needed to reduce the state's bruin population, now estimated at about 3,400. But critics say the state's bear management policy is flawed and was developed arbitrarily. Animal advocates had gone to court to block the hunt, but they were rebuffed by a state appellate court.

Duck hunting in Michigan a multimillion dollar sport
Lake St. Clair Examiner    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With the still of the night just beginning to recede into light of the day, dedicated duck hunters gather and gear up. Their destinations can vary from farmers' fields to duck blinds along the shorelines to layout and sneak boats on the Lake St. Clair in order to bring home those delicacies. And as night begins to gray into day, residents living along the shorelines can hear the sound of gun shot as the hunters zero in on those targets. More

85-year-old hunter from Ionia, Mich., bags deer No. 55
Sentinel-Standard via Chicago Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Bernard Baxter, 85, has shot almost as many deer as the number of years he has been hunting. This year, using his trusty Remington 16-gauge, three-shot automatic shotgun, he shot his 55th, a six-point buck. However, he said he did not think it to be any kind of milestone. "I just figured it's another one on my list," Baxter said. A list is certainly something Baxter keeps handy. He has recorded a journal entry for every hunting expedition since his very first time in 1943. More

WOUB    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says two new options to check game were used by 75 percent of hunters. This is the first year that deer hunters have been able to report their kill by phone or the Internet. Ohio Division of Wildlife Spokeswoman Lindsay Rist says gun hunters have bagged 24,000 white tail deer since the opening of the hunting season. This number is 40 percent fewer deer killed compared to last year's hunt. More

Despite bleak forecasts and predictions for this year's duck season by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, hunters around the area have had some success with duck hunting. Recent heavy rains have helped fill in some water habitats and existing waterways have seen signs of the mass influx of birds predicted by the TPWD that were said to be heading into North Texas after exceptional breeding numbers up north.

Missouri hunters report taking 5 antlered does
Southeast Missourian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Missouri Department of Conservation resource scientist Emily Flinn specializes in deer biology. She says she has received five reports this year from hunters who shot antlered deer that appear, at least externally, to be female. Flinn said this phenomenon is not as rare as you might think. As many as one in every 65 or as few as one in 4,437 female white-tailed deer may grow antlers, depending on the region within North America. It's all a question of hormones. More

Old-style deer hunting appeals to dedicated group
Appleton Post Crescent    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Wisconsin's gun-deer season draws hundreds of thousands of hunters and garners statewide attention, but a much smaller, dedicated group of deer hunters taps into history when they pull the trigger. They hunt with muzzle-loaders — a style of gun hundreds of years old — and often adopt old-style hunting techniques to go along with their antiquated weapons. "Shooting these guns, it's like shooting history," said Gary Clark, 64, of Wittenberg, Wis., who has been hunting with a muzzle-loader for more than two decades. More

Bay City Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Local meat markets are busy processing deer meat brought in by successful hunters. The 16-day firearm deer season ended, and though deer processing activity was down the first week, it picked up steam as the season progressed and ended up by 50 percent from last year, said Meats and Moore owner Craig Owczarzak of Bay City, Mich. "We've had a great turn out," Owczarzak said. More

Florida looks to ease alligator hunting law
Sun Sentinel    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has authorized its staff to begin working on a package of amendments to the alligator hunting law to be presented to the state Legislature. Harry Dutton, coordinator of the alligator management program, said the review may simply streamline a statute that was probably overloaded with rules because of the sensitivity of hunting a former endangered species.

Hunters with physical challenges inspire warden
Pierce County Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A case of the missing doe, a Vietnam War combat veteran on crutches and his deaf hunting buddy was the first encounter when Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Warden Shaun Deeney of Black River Falls, Wis., started his patrol shift on Thanksgiving morning. Little did he know he was about to be reminded why he ever wanted to become a warden in the first place. More

Murray Ledger & Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
You know you're in Brinkley, Ark., when you step out of the truck and hear hundreds, if not thousands of snow and speckled geese soaring overhead. Watch the immense flocks of geese long enough and you'll spot a "V" of high-flying ducks traveling along side. Situated 35 miles from Stuttgart, the waterfowl capital of the Mississippi Delta, Kenny Darnell says Brinkley is a duck hunter's heaven. More
