Montana bighorn sheep find new home in Hell Canyon near Custer
KELO-TV
After a 12-hour overnight ride from north-central Montana, the sheep were anxious to get out of this trailer. So when the door finally opened, they did what Rocky Mountain bighorns do best — bolting into the snow and scampering up the rocky slope to safety, as state biologists celebrated the release. "They looked excellent," John Kanta, regional wildlife manager for the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department in Rapid City, said. "I'm very happy with the results. Everybody looked happy and healthy. We didn't have any injuries that I noticed, and they're all up on the mountain there. So we look real good."

Firearms deer season tallies drop across Upper Midwest
Outdoor Hub
The deer hunting gods and/or state wildlife agencies didn't single out individual states for slower firearms deer seasons in late autumn 2013. No, deer hunting was tougher during November and early December's firearms seasons across the Upper Midwest, with statewide kills falling short of 2012's totals in all preliminary figures released by the agencies.

Jaguars have been spotted in national park for more than a century
Carlsbad Current-Argus
Have the Guadalupe Mountains been home to the black panther in the late 1800s and 1900s? Some say yes and sightings have been recorded. Others discount the black cat's existence in the mountain range. A chapter in W.C. Jameson's book "Legend and Lore of the Guadalupe Mountains" tells of several encounters and sightings of a black panther.

Nebraskan's pursuit of elk takes him to picturesque Montana
Omaha World-Herald
Darkness blanketed Mike Jansen and his guide as they began their trek up the side of the mountain. The elevation in the valley where they began their hike was 2,500 feet. By sunrise, they had worked their way up to 6,000 feet. At 6 a.m., they were atop a ridge gazing down at deep valleys on either side. Jansen paused to drink in the beauty of the Cabinet Mountains that were bathed in the early-morning sun.

Hunting the alpine tops — a summer hunting tale
Nelson Mail
Zane Mirfin, an outdoor columnist writes: "Tony Fyfe, now of Noosa, but a veteran of the Asian business world, has been on many fishing trips with me over the years, but we'd never attempted an overnight hunting trip before. Being a couple of old fellas on the wrong side of our mid-40s, flying in by helicopter was the way to go, avoiding big hikes with heavy loads, and maximising hunting time in the bingo-zone."

How to haul out a moose with 2 trucks and a cable
Outdoor Life
Alex Robinson, a writer for Outdoor Life, writes: "Probably the most logical reason for shooting a moose is for the meat. Moose meat is some of the richest, most tender, most delicious venison in the woods. I was recently on a trip in Alberta hunting with the T/C Dimension rifle and Rugged Outfitting, and while moose populations around North America are in flux, the area we were in (between Calgary and Edmonton) was chock-full of them. They were in farm fields and frozen muskeg swamps, in the ditches along the roads, and in the expansive logging cuts. In a week of hunting I saw more than 75 moose. Our group piled up the venison quickly."

Bighorn sheep leave Antelope Island for former territory
The Salt Lake Tribune
Wildlife biologists went to the "nursery" at Antelope Island State Park recently to help start a new bighorn sheep herd in Utah. Using a helicopter and net guns, a contracted wildlife capture crew started the process of rounding up 30 bighorn sheep from the largest island on the Great Salt Lake. Once captured, the wild sheep were hobbled, blindfolded and flown to a staging area, where biologists from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Utah State Parks and volunteers conducted medical checkups.

Hunting in poor conditions
By John McAdams
Most hunters are familiar with the ideal conditions for hunting big game with respect to the rut, wind speed and direction, the phase of the moon, and ambient temperatures. However, like many other hunters out there, I have to hunt when I have time off from work, and that does not always mean I'll be deer hunting under ideal circumstances. This does not mean you can't be successful. However, it may mean you have to change your hunting methods to fit prevailing conditions.
