From Oct. 24, 2012: A disease has killed more than 8,000 Michigan deer this year, causing some hunters to possibly skip the season and dealing a blow to shops that sell hunting gear. The number of dead whitetails significantly has climbed since summer when hundreds were reported in just a handful of counties. Deaths now have occurred in much of the southern Lower Peninsula, west of Interstate 75, the result of a disease transmitted by a biting fly, according to the state Department of Natural Resources.

NTA Taxi Gram: 'Trophy' definition challenged again
NTA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From June 20, 2012: Our review of the 38,000 comments and suggestions to the United States Fish & Wildlife Service for the next Convention and International Trade in Endangered Species Conference of the Parties also disclosed that the same protectionists are attempting to get the service to narrow the definition of "hunting trophy" used by CITES. They caused FWS to adopt its 2007 regulation that had eliminated crafted items and now they are at it again because the Parties at CoP15 revised the related resolution to make it clear for all that "manufactured parts" from the trophy were included in the definition.

Whitetail Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Aug. 1, 2012: Jason Sawyers had never seen anything like it in years of enforcing Kansas hunting and fishing laws. Sawyers, a lieutenant with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, spotted a large man parading around the ballparks at Lake Shawnee with a baby deer he had captured. The man had the fawn on a pink leash. More

From June 6, 2012: Mountain lions have killed two radio-collared wolves in the Bitterroot Valley since January, a state wolf specialist in Montana says, and two others were killed last year. "I haven't heard of it happening anywhere else," Liz Bradley of Montana, Fish, Wildlife and Parks told the Ravalli Republic. "It's pretty interesting that the Bitterroot has had so many." More

Billings man crafts one-of-a-kind vessel for waterfowl hunting
The Billings Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Jan. 25, 2012: Billings welder Dave Wise has repaired so many jet boats that have been plowed onto gravel bars or run atop snags and boulders that he developed a keen insight into how the river-running crafts are built. So, he decided to build his own jet-powered blind boat. He uses the boat to duck and goose hunt on the Bighorn River in Wyoming. More

Price of hunting waterfowl could go up under Senate legislation    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From May 2, 2012: The price of hunting migratory waterfowl might go up. The administration has endorsed legislation that would allow the U.S.Department of the Interior to set the price of Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamps, commonly known as Duck Stamps, every five years. All hunters are required to carry a stamp, the price of which is set by law. Almost all the money (98 percent) collected goes to acquire land to set aside as habitat for waterfowl. Since the program started in 1934, the federal government bought more than 5.3 million acres, which it added to the National Wildlife Refuge System. More

Outdoors: Beware of UV brighteners when deer hunting
Battle Creek Enquirer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Sept. 26, 2012: If you are a deer hunter, an ultraviolet light should be your best friend. For as long as companies have been manufacturing camouflage hunting duds, they've been using UV brighteners to make their clothing stand out to consumers. And you can't wash UV brighteners out of clothing — ever. While some of today's new camouflage doesn't contain UV brighteners, a lot still does. And it's only by putting the clothing under a UV light or black light, that you'll see the tell-tale glow of UV brighteners. But, deer only see two colors, and they can detect ultraviolet light.

Birmingham, Ala., deer hunter finds spirit in the hunt, taking huge buck
Alabama Live    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Jan. 25, 2012: By his own account, most of 2011 will not stand out as a stellar year for Adam Burt of Birmingham, Ala. Laid off and unemployed for nearly five months, Burt landed a new job around the first part of October. Still, hamstrung financially and mentally by the long search for work, Burt also was concerned getting on with a different company would limit the amount of time he'd have to make the 90-minute drive to his hunting club near Haleyville in northwest Alabama. So Burt climbed into his stand to enjoy a little Zen time and hoped to take a fat doe if the opportunity arose. Euphoric would best describe how he felt leaving those woods a couple of hours later. Riding to camp with a massive 14-point buck on the back of an ATV has a way of doing that. More

New Mexico further restricts nonresident hunting
NTA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Jan. 25, 2012: The New Mexico Legislature, in its first session of 2012, made a number of new restrictions on nonresidents that will become effective this year. The Legislature amended the special drawings for licenses that had long provided that 22 percent of the licenses should be issued to nonresidents with 12 percent with nonresidents who are to be guided by a New Mexico outfitter and the remaining 10 percent not required to be guided by a New Mexico outfitter or guide. It now limits the licenses to no more than 16 percent, if that, by providing 10 percent of the licenses for residents and nonresidents who are contracted with a New Mexico outfitter prior to the application, and 6 percent to nonresidents who are not required to be contracted with an outfitter.
