NTA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
US Fish & Wildlife Services has begun to implement a zero tolerance policy on trophy shipments with any errors or omissions on import/export documentation, no matter how innocent it might be. Where the service previously allowed hunters to return their shipment to the exporting country for re-import with correct documents, agents are now moving forward with seizures. More

Taking a record book Colorado mule deer
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The timber where this giant was located was near the edge of the property, so a careless stalk or any other type of excess pressure could kick him off the land. That was his bedding area, though at first and last light he would sometimes come out in the open with his large harem of does to feed — mostly on a high, exposed knoll of sage. More

Nearly 300 hunting trophies from the WyoBraska museum in Gering, Neb., are to sell at auction in Omaha, Neb., according to the company Taxidermy-Auctions.

It's going to cost more to hunt & fish in Wyoming
WyoFile    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Wander for a few days along the western slope of the Wind River Mountains in Wyoming with biologist Hall Sawyer looking for mule deer and you might decide not to bother buying a hunting license. Energy development and winter range hammered by drought, have taken their toll on the Sublette County herd. Nurturing that fragile mule deer population is one reason the Wyoming Game & Fish Department is selling fewer hunting licenses these days. More

Wisconsin Indian tribe authorizes deer hunting at night
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In late November, the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission, which oversees the Chippewa tribes' treaty rights in Wisconsin, voted to authorize night hunting for deer by tribal members. To participate in the after-dark hunt, tribal members would be required to pass a marksmanship test. According to an Associated Press report, 74 members met those requirements but, thus far, none have applied for a night-hunting permit. More

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 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 in 2011 compared with 2006. And if seen as an economic sector, those hunters have a significant financial impact. More

A new face for hunting?    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
South Africa's hunting industry has set its sights on growing its already booming business and on casting off its negative image. The country's abundant wildlife, already a top tourist attraction, also draws thousands of marksmen in search of trophies for the wall or meat for the pot. But the industry has an obvious image problem. It struggles to convince the public that shooting individual animals does not threaten species. More

Getting better photos of your hunting trophies, memories
The Patriot News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Several nice photos of young hunters with their deer accompany this column. They are just some of big game "hero" photos — in this case, meaning a hunter with his or her deer — we've received in the week since the 2012 firearms hunting season for deer opened in Pennsylvania. Some, like these that appear on this page, have been relatively good photos, the kind that even many non-hunters can appreciate. More

Wyoming legislators to vote on bill allowing silencers on hunting guns
Los Angeles Times via Missoulian    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. More

Most killed wolves will likely be on display as trophies
Wisconsin State Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What do wolf hunters do with the animals after they shoot them? Almost all of the 116 wolves killed during the state's first regulated recreational hunt will probably be mounted or perhaps turned into display pelts, said Tom Hauge, who directs wildlife management for the state Department of Natural Resources. The hunt, which has been described as a way to control depredation on livestock and other run-ins between wolves and humans, is largely a trophy hunt. More
