    First Bear Hunt In 100 Years-4


    In action last week, Kentucky legislators approved a regulatory amendment that will create Kentucky’s first black bear season in more than a century.

    “Sportsmen and sportswomen of Kentucky should be very excited,” said Steven Dobey, black bear biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “Bears are now well established in eastern Kentucky and research shows that population growth has risen steadily over the last 20 years.”

    A Trophy Llama? Priceless!-19


    You’ve probably seen the television commercials for Southwest Airlines, where someone does something incredibly bone-headed, and the announcer asks, “Wanna get away?”

    We figure that’s probably how Rusty Saunders of Fort Edward, N.Y. felt after he shot—and tagged—what he thought was an elk while hunting in Montana’s Paradise Valley last November.

    Why This Man Will Never Hunt Again-4


    A once-prominent big game hunter and guide whose name and image appeared regularly in national hunting publications and advertisements for hunting rifles will never again hunt, fish or be allowed to own a firearm.

    Once one of the country’s best-known hunting celebrities, the now-disgraced Kirt Darner, 69, was sentenced on Monday, Jan. 12, in Cibola County, New Mexico District Court to 4,500 hours of community service, fined $10,000 and ordered to pay an unspecified amount of restitution to the New Mexico and Colorado game agencies and a Colorado taxidermy business.

    The World Record Elk-6


     Last week, a Boone & Crockett Club scoring panel confirmed that the massive non-typical bull elk taken on Monroe Mountain in central Utah by hunter Denny Austad in September 2008 as the official the new World Record for the category and species.

    The panel determined the “spider bull,” (a nickname bestowed upon the animal because of the tangle of antlers it carried), scored 478 5/8 non-typical, 93 inches above the B&C minimum score for non-typical American elk and more than 13 inches larger than the previous World Record.

    Tracking official scoring data dating back to 1830, the bull’s gross score of 499 3/8 inches makes it the only elk in history that has ever come close to reaching the hallowed 500-inch mark.

    But the massive bull, the hunt, and the B&C World Record title itself continue to be the subject of a heated debate within the hunting community.
