Doves With Prickly Pear BBQ Sauce

HONEST-FOOD.NET From the Archives – I had hardly loaded my shotgun when I heard someone to my left shout, “Here they come!”

By the time I turned my head to look, a flock of 30 doves roared over the treeline behind us, dodging and zig-zagging like fighter jets coming in for an attack. The guys to my left let loose on them in a barrage of anti-aircraft…

(Nat’l – Hunting) Dove Hunting- A Family Affair

Think back to your very first dove hunt. No matter how many years ago, chances are you remember—the time, place, gun and who you were with. For many of us, dove hunting was the start into the world of hunting and wildlife, forging lifelong friendships, passions and memories. For me, it was about 1966.

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The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has withdrawn support for so-called cyanide bombs, which are used to kill predators of livestock.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…

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…

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.

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.

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.

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…
