    Hunting Honeymoon-3

    by

    You might say that Bruce and Rene Thompson’s marriage started off with a bang.

    And no, it wasn’t what you'd call a “shotgun wedding.” But that said, a 12-gauge did play a major part in the couple’s honeymoon.

    The newlyweds, who hail from Louisville, Tenn., tied the knot in Jamaica, but flew back to the states to spend their honeymoon turkey hunting in east Tennessee.

    In Cold Blood-10

    by

    If there was ever any question about wolves being ruthless and indiscriminate killers, this week’s story out of Eastern Oregon will dispel any doubt you may have.

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife have confirmed that wolves were responsible for killing nearly two dozen lambs on Curt Jacobs’ Baker City, Ore.-area ranch in separate attacks in recent weeks. The attacks were the first documented losses of livestock to wolves since the predators returned to the state in 1999.

    Mountain Lion Survival-10

    by

    A new study conducted at the University of California-Davis suggests that the conventional advice of standing one’s ground when confronted by a mountain lion and trying to appear large might not always be the best tact. 

    Despite the fact that every state game and fish agency that operates in lion country recommends the opposite, the study concludes that in some instances, running might be the wisest move.

    by

    Considering the economic turmoil faced by many newspapers these days, I guess we shouldn’t expect newspaper reporters and their editors in urban parts of New Jersey to be expert ornithologists when it comes to bird identification.

    That’s asking way too much.

    Death By Baitfish-7

    by

    In what authorities are calling a freak accident, a Huntington Beach, Calif. fisherman choked to death on a baitfish while trying to entertain a boatful of school kids on a fishing trip Friday. 

    The death of Jeff Twaddle, 54, a deckhand on the charter boat Gale Force, was ruled accidental by the county coroner’s office. The official cause of death was “aspiration of fish.”
