Ammo Land
Recent national and state-level research conducted by Responsive Management reveals that obtaining meat is an increasingly important motivation among American hunters to go afield.

No question: Blaze orange safety requirement reduces hunting accidents
Brainerd Dispatch
With Minnesota's small game hunting season underway and the firearm deer season set to begin Nov. 9, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says making a blaze orange fashion statement this fall might not get you on the best-dressed list, but it just might save your life. "Wearing blaze orange clothing is a safety requirement to hunt or trap during Minnesota's small game season or deer season," said Capt. Mike Hammer, DNR enforcement education program coordinator. "It's important to be seen by others."

Bighorn ram numbers a mystery
The Bismarck Tribune
Most everyone who hunts in North Dakota, whether they actually hunt deer or not, knows the opening day for deer gun season is Nov. 8. And unless you were one of the four hunters who have a North Dakota bighorn sheep license for this fall, or if you are a friend or family member of one of those hunters, you probably didn't know for sure that the state's bighorn sheep gun season opens Nov. 1.

My first deer: An unforgettable experience
By John McAdams
Just after first light that morning, my father tapped me on the knee and slowly motioned to our left. I looked and saw two shapes carefully moving through the mist. Looking through the scope on my rifle, I could see that the shapes were two young bucks about 50 yards away, walking warily toward the feeder in front of us, and my pulse quickened. "They’re bucks," I whispered to my father. "Pick one and go ahead and shoot him," my father responded.

The Jamestown Sun
A fatal disease that has struck North Dakota's deer population this year is now being found in cattle. Cattle cases of epizootic hemorrhagic disease — commonly known as EHD — have been reported in several counties, according to State Veterinarian Susan Keller. Ranchers, particularly in southern and southwestern North Dakota, should be looking for symptoms in their herds, including excessive salivation, swollen tongues, mouth ulcers, fever, reproductive problems and lameness, she said.

About 30 sheep will be captured in nets dropped by helicopters at the U.S. Army's Yuma Proving Grounds along the Arizona-California border next month.
