For New Jersey's legion of tax accountants, boom times come once a year. But local taxidermists can wait for years at a stretch for their biggest moneymaker: bear-hunting season. The walls at Delaware & Hudson Taxidermy in Matamoras, Pa., along the New Jersey border, display a wolverine, turkey and fox — all roadkill. Owner Dave Clark says car-struck critters accounted for much of his business before bear season. More

Between 2002 and 2007, the program involved more than 45,000 acres at a cost of $1.3 million statewide. More

Chris Alberini was excited for the upcoming hunting season in Massachusetts. "I had a ton of good bucks on my trail cameras and it looked like I would have a couple 'slam dunks' on some good bucks," he said. As the season got under way, Chris had plenty of does and small bucks walk by his stand, but the big ones that he had captured on trail camera were nowhere to be found. Frustration was beginning to set it, but Chris stuck it out and continued to spend as much time in the tree as he could. More

Area bass anglers, duck hunters thriving
Las Vegas Review-Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Striped bass are one of those fish that can give first-timers, second-timers and even third-timers a bit of trouble. Sometimes they can be so finicky that they send even the most ardent anglers home in frustration. But the past week or so hasn't been one of those times. In fact, now is your opportunity to get a little revenge for those times when the fishing hasn't been so good. More

According to that gun-totin,' guitar-playin' Texan Billy Gibbons, "The whole world's crazy about a sharp-dressed man." While sharpness can be a matter of debate and taste, it's a fact that being well dressed for hunters who participate in Pennsylvania's late deer seasons means wearing apparel that makes them difficult to be seen. That means, for those who enjoy the challenge of spot-and-stalk hunting, having some type of snow camouflage in their wardrobe. More

Wildlife Management Institute    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Talk to any wildlife biologist in the southern United States about wild pigs, and you're likely to hear something akin to at least one of the following, "They're the four-legged equivalent of fire ants;" "If the average litter is six, typically eight survive;" "Only a fence that will hold water will hold feral hogs." Even the most rigorous scientists are reduced to using these tongue-in-cheek aphorisms to describe the harsh reality and seemingly apocalyptic future of North America's second-most harvested mammalian game species, reports the Wildlife Management Institute.
