With amateur taxidermy, you get what you pay for
Roanoke Times
There's a bit of a learning curve when it comes to taking a dead critter and bringing it back to life. Taxidermy is something many kids who grow up hunting and fishing try at some point. Kids gawked at every mounted deer or elk head they came across. The reamed of the day they would kill my first buck, and gave lots of thought to how I would preserve and display the trophy.

See head-butting rams at Utah's Bighorn Sheep viewing day
The Salt Lake Tribune
Few moments in the wildlife world are more violent than the annual mating season of bighorn sheep; at least the events that don't end in a death. It isn't the mating that causes people to cringe, but dominance determination by the rams. Utah Division of Wildlife Resources officials can't guarantee that participants will see bighorn sheep ramming heads, but it is possible during the annual free Bighorn Sheep Watch along the Green River, north of the town of Green River.

Sauger bite during the holiday season
Altus Times
Sauger hover just above bottom right now downstream of dams, waiting for a stunned shad to tumble into their orbit. Their numbers will grow in proportion to the downward slide of the thermometer. The peak concentration of sauger below dams coincides with the coldest weather of the year. Sauger readily bite in water temperatures below 40 degrees, the most reliable winter fish of all.

Deer hunting tips: 6 tactics for late-season bucks
Outdoor Life
When it comes to closing the deal on a late-season buck that's on a feeding pattern, few can do it like Rich Baugh. "In six of the last seven years, I've killed my target bucks the first time I hunted them," says Baugh, who hunts Iowa's late muzzleloader season. "Last year, I killed my buck on the first night.
