DC – HUNTING – Trump opens 1.4 million federal acres to hunters, anglers

President Trump isn’t much of an outdoorsman, aside from golf. But maybe more than any president since Teddy Roosevelt, he understands the importance of others getting outside to boat, hunt, fish, shoot, and hike and their demands for access to federal lands and waterways. “He’s basically said, ‘Git-R-Done,’” said Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, who is spearheading the opening of 1.4 million acres and elimination of 7,500 regulations…

PA – HUNTING – Pennsylvania should keep the ban on Sunday hunting

Spring and Summer Deer Scouting: Will Most Bucks Relocate Come Fall?

REALTREE.COM From the Archives – Many deer hunters out there believe spring and summer scouting is obsolete. They think it isn’t worth the effort it takes to slip on your Mucks or the gas it takes to drive to the farm. In some cases, they might be right. But mid-year scouting is far from worthless.

For the most part, spring whitetails behave similarly to summer whitetails and roughly 40 to 50…

Should polar bear hunting be legal? It’s complicated.

MSN.COM May 28, 2019 – Countries around the world agree that polar bears are in trouble: They’re considered threatened in the United States, of special concern in Canada, and vulnerable internationally. Yet in much of their icy habitat, it’s perfectly legal to pick up a gun and shoot one.

Bowfishing: What Fish Can I Actually Shoot With a Bow?

The Magic & Myths of Fawns

QDMA.COM  From the Archives – I always look forward to seeing the first newborn fawn of the year.
