Maintaining the legacy
Sports Afield    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The news about the future of hunting isn't as bleak as it may have appeared a few years ago. A new government report shows that hunter numbers have jumped 9 percent in the past five years. The just-released 2011 National Survey of Hunting, Fishing, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation shows 13.7 million people or 6 percent of the U.S. population age 16 and older, went hunting in 2011. That marks a 9 percent increase over 2006, reversing a previous downward trend. Conservation groups are noting that these numbers are important not just for hunters themselves, but for wildlife and for the future of conservation. More

All Africa    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A group of 10 hunting operators donated equipment to boost anti-poaching campaigns in Tanzania. In the meantime, the companies made special request to the government to increase the hunting period from five to around 20 years, which could be considerable for the firms to invest in key infrastructures like roads and bridges for easy access into the wildlife areas.

Wolf-killing by the numbers: Trappers outdo hunters
MinnPost    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dec. 18 may mark the midpoint of Minnesota's new trapping and hunting seasons on wolves, which began Nov. 3 and will run through Jan. 31. Or maybe not. Policy calls for the Minnesota Department of Resources to end the wolf harvest as soon as its target of 400 wolf kills is reached and with each passing day, that goal seems likelier to be reached early. As of recently, two of DNR's three wolf zones were closed for the duration and the overall tally, at this writing, is approaching 300 (updates and a map are available here). More

A female hunter's appeal
Lancaster New Era    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ad Crable, Outdoor Trails staff writer, writes: "Irene Cooney, a loyal reader in Penn Township, Pa., and a longtime hunter, sent me a gently prodding letter the other day. 'You do a lot of articles on men hunting,' she wrote. 'Hope you will run a woman's story because more and more women are finding out what I have been experiencing for more than 53 years now.' Cooney is right. In recent years, the rise of females entering the shooting sports is one promising demographic in a general decline in the nation's hunting population. More

10 rifle shooting myths exposed
Gun Digest    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Down through the years, many gun writers have warned shooters that flattened and damaged bullet points can severely affect shooting accuracy. The issue is one primarily a product of cartridges having been stored inside the magazine of a heavy-recoiling rifle. In such a case, when the rifle is fired, the cartridges sometimes are forced forward, causing the bullet points to impact the front of the magazine, thereby resulting in the flattening of the soft lead points. Over the years, it seems that many shooters have accepted the pretense that such imperfections can cause a bullet to go astray in flight. More
