Sheepherder encounters new wolf pack near Blewett Pass, Wash.
KING-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Central Washington sheep herder Heraclio De la Cruz's lunch break was interrupted by the howls of a herd dog. He dropped his lunch and, along with the rest of the dogs went to investigate. De la Cruz was about to become one of the first people in the state to have a confrontation with a pack of wolves. State Fish and Wildlife biologists investigated and say, based on De la Cruz's eyewitness account and the injuries to one of his heard dogs, Gabby, they have no doubt they had encountered the newly formed Teanaway wolf pack. They suspect the wolves were drawn to the herd area by the scent of a sheep recently killed by a cougar. More

The zen of a successful big game hunter
The Bellingham Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Big game hunting is challenging. When you look at harvest data, you see there are more hunters who go home with unfilled tags than who bag an animal. But some hunters consistently do better than the statistics. We all know the individual who gets an animal every year, or nearly every year. He or she is usually a step above the average hunter, and all these people share similar traits. More

The National    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The star of the opening day of the Abu Dhabi International Hunting & Equestrian show wasn't a horse, a Saluki or even a prize falcon - it was a gun. The RX Helix, a revolutionary hunting rifle conceived three years ago by a member of the Abu Dhabi Royal Family and created by Merkel, a German gun company wholly owned by the Abu Dhabi investment company Tawazun, is no ordinary weapon.

Disease killing off Nevada bighorn sheep
Reno Gazette-Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Disease might decimate a herd of bighorn sheep that Nevada biologists previously thought faced a promising future. California bighorn sheep are dying of pneumonia in the Snowstorm Mountains about 30 miles northeast of Winnemucca. It's unknown exactly how many have succumbed in what is a rare summertime die-off, but things don't look good, said Ken Gray, an Elko-based supervisory game biologist with the Nevada Department of Wildlife.

Elk in the high country
North Texas e-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There is something absolutely magical about hunting elk in the high country, especially when one leaves Texas' searing heat in early September for 38 degree night's common this time of year in the mountains north of Steamboat Springs Colorado. More

Conflict turkeys, lion quotas on Parks and Wildlife agenda in Colorado
Big Game Hunt    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Colorado's turkey restoration program stands as one of the most successful species conservation programs in state history. Beginning in the early 1980s, wildlife biologists began transplanting turkeys in an effort to restore populations of the small game bird. Since then, wild turkeys have colonized most of the available habitat in the state. They can now be found in 53 of the state's 64 counties. More

Yes! She hunts like a girl
Pine River Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recently Sha Ray Rock made hunting history. It wasn't just that she hiked about four miles in on a dark trail to harvest her mountain goat. Or that she's only 15. Or even that she made the shot at about 614 yards, hitting it right in the neck. She is the first tribal member to harvest a goat using a Brunot tag, which are awarded only to Colorado natives hunting on their tribal lands. More

NRA fights to secure access to federal lands
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Under current land management policies, federal land open to hunting and recreational shooting is not protected from being closed arbitrarily. The ill-defined policy of "open until closed" provides no requirements for an agency to issue public notice, hold a public comment period, or show sound science as the basis for a closure. Moreover, there is no provision that requires land managers, such as the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land management, to even consider hunting, fishing, or target shooting in land use planning.
