U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT From the Archives – America’s first national park is also one of the best places for wildlife watching. Yellowstone is home to the largest concentrations of mammals in the lower 48 states, including a large population of American bison. Every species here has its own story, like the wolves, which were restored after disappearing decades earlier. While summer is the peak time to visit the park, every season brings something special, from fall’s elk to winter’s…[FULL ARTICLE]

Weekend, June 16-17, 2018 — I know it’s a cliché, but to a hunter, all wildlife is watchable with one nearly worth as much as any other. That changes only with the waning summer and the coming autumn. But summer is that flex time of year when hunters begin to get nervous and start thinking about what they’ll see come September and October. For everyone else, America’s wildlife is massive and diverse and well worth the watching since most of our countrymen don’t have the opportunity to see what hunters see. If they did, the woods would become very uncomfortable for those of us who view wildlife in autumn as not just watchable but edible.
Not to say that we don’t enjoy wildlife year round. We do. Probably moreso than most because of our proclivity towards outdoor – rather than indoor – recreation. Many of us are fortunate to live with wildlife in our backyards. Not just songbirds but non-hunted (for the most part) species like raccoons, skunks, porcupines, snakes, voles, prairie dogs, eagles, herons, and many more, some of which visit us probably more than we’d like but which we tolerate nonetheless and that’s because we view all wildlife as God’s gifts to the high mountains and the low valleys and every place in between.
Americans are fortunate to have such treasure in abundance. Unlike some countries – the UK is an example – indigenous wildlife was shown the exit door many decades ago until the wildlife variety is – well, far less than a variety anymore. Among the pleasures we enjoy about wildlife is photographing them so we’ve chosen this opportunity to showcase the talents of others who spend both careers and leisure time with not gun or bow in hand but cameras as you’ll see in this edition of…

I wanted to use my Tamron 150-600mm lens and see how it worked photographing wildlife. I don't have much experience with wildlife photography so I called up my father. He shot for National Geographic, the Audubon Society, and many other magazines for years.

BOB ROGERS | Monday, June 11, 2018 - All doubts, if there had been any, are now firmly erased. In the case of Kamala Harris, we were warned. As for Steve Kerr, coach of the dynasty plagued Golden State Warriors, he has made his intentions clearly known to the media after nearly every mass shooting event in recent history: He wants to be a politician whose platform consists of two subjects, immigration and gun control. Harris has a history of gun control. As California’s Attorney General, Harris co-chaired the committee to elect Barack Obama as president and called almost incessantly for programs to study gun violence and legislation to ban certain guns. When California Senator Barbara Boxer retired, Harris jumped in to fill the vacant senate seat in 2016. [read more]

SHELBY MURDOC | May 15, 2018 — “Every Marine a rifleman,” they say. The full quote, by Gen. Alfred M. Gray, 29th Commandant of the Marine Corps, is, “Every Marine is, first and foremost, a rifleman. All other conditions are secondary.” Today, the United States Marine Corps is in the process of upgunning its riflemen.
The M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle, originally intended as a replacement for many (but not all) of the M249 SAWs in Corps inventory, has since been designated the new standard infantry weapon for the entire USMC. The M27 IAR is based on the Heckler & Koch HK416, a piston-driven rifle that serves in a number of militaries and is, perhaps, most famous for being the rifle Navy SEALs supposedly used to kill Osama bin Laden in 2011.
