NAT’L – WILDLIFE – Cyanide bombs: US reverses policy on wildlife-killing traps

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has withdrawn support for so-called cyanide bombs, which are used to kill predators of livestock. Use of the deadly devices known as M-44s began in the 1960s and was re-authorised by the agency in June, sparking a new backlash. M-44s have been known to harm humans and kill endangered wild species that are not considered pests to ranchers. They work by…

NAT’L – WILDLIFE – EPA reauthorizes use of ‘cyanide bombs’ to kill wild animals

The Trump administration has reauthorized the use of controversial traps dubbed “cyanide bombs” to kill coyotes, foxes and other animals across the US. The Environmental Protection Agency announced this week that it would allow, on an interim basis, the use of M-44 devices, which trap wildlife with bait before spraying sodium cyanide into their mouths, according to CBS News. The spring-loaded devices, which have killed more than…

IN DEFENSE OF THE PIGEON

HONEST-FOOD.NET From the Archives -Dakota and I ambled down the logging road, grand fir, ponderosa pine, and the occasional black oak lining our path, which led gently down a slope in the Sierra Nevada, some miles from the little town of Quincy. We chatted amiably, getting to know each other; we’d just met. Dakota knew where some…

4 things you need for hunting pigeons

GRANDVIEW OUTDOORS FROM THE ARCHIVES – Pigeons are a huge problem in Idaho. There’s no season and no bag limit, yet the state is still overrun. In wheat fields, corn fields, on dairy farms, in granaries and pretty much everywhere in Idaho, pigeons are there. The state’s pigeon population is unknown, but a local ranch manager told…

The 11 Best Hunts of Summer

OUTDOOR LIFE.COM From the Archives – If you ever wondered why layout blinds are sometimes called coffin blinds, spend some time inside one under the midday August sun. I did just that in Utah last summer. The cool of the desert morning turned to intense heat by 10 a.m. as heat mirages rose off the distant wheat…

Antelope Numbers Across 6 States

GO HUNT.COM – From the Archives – The antelope is one of the greatest wildlife restoration success stories. In the early 1800s, antelope numbered between 30 and 60 million, ranging from as far north as Canada to as far south as Mexico City. By the turn of the century, however, European settlers had nearly hunted them to extinction, bringing the antelope…

SC – HUNTING – Response to South Carolina Deer Urine Ban…

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources released a new hunting rule last week banning urine-based scents, taking away an important hunting tool used by many successful hunters every year.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of false and misleading information driving policy and regulations regarding urine-based scents being a risk for spreading CWD.  The impact of banning…

NY – HUNTING – Webfoot Outdoors and kennel facility a net gain for dogs, hunters

IL – HUNTING – Checking out “Woodstock with guns”: Waterfowl blind draw at Rice Lake SFWA

The venison sirloin fell apart at first bite. Perfect. Too many venison cuts I’ve eaten bordered on jerky chew. As I milled Sunday before the waterfowl-blind draw at Rice Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area, I heard Mike Gensler talking marinades as he turned kabobs on a grill. Regular readers know that’s whom I interviewed. By the 2 p.m. draw, about 1,200 had bunched in front of site superintendent Scott…

WY – HUNTING – Editorial: Best bear defense up to hunters

There are enough studies to show that, in many situations, a can of bear spray is a solid deterrent against grizzly bears. Wyoming Game and Fish recommends people carry a can with them in bear country and provides cans to their staff. That all makes sense and we’re glad G&F is weighing in on the issue. We’re also pleased the department is not taking the matter further and…

Why Do Mountain Bikers Keep Running into Bears on the Trail?

OUTSIDE ONLINE.COM From the Archives – Brad Treat was cruising through a densely wooded trail in northwest Montana last summer when he rounded a corner and slammed into a 20-year-old grizzly bear.

NAT’L – WILDLIFE – To protect wildlife, national park rangers use an unusual tool: radar guns

Some of America’s most iconic animals, from bison and bears to red-bellied turtles and the rare Hawaiian geese known as “nene,” are in danger every day from an unexpected angle: tourists crashing into them while sightseeing in national parks. Managing conflicts between millions of visitors and millions of animals is a constant balancing act for National Park Service managers, and the burden falls primarily on the tiny…

AR – HUNTING – AGFC ready to liberalize furbearer hunting rules

Landowners and managers should get help managing turkey and quail Thursday when the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission votes on new furbearer regulations.

PA – HUNTING – Dixon’s Gunmakers Fair caters to muzzleloader aficionados

It is no secret that muzzleloading firearms hold significant interest in Pennsylvania and across the country. One look at the hunting and shooting section of a well-stocked magazine rack will reveal numerous specialty covers devoted to black powder guns, accessories and their historical times. In Pennsylvania, the popularity of hunting with a “smoke-pole” has continued to be strong, with separate seasons for original style black powder guns…
