    Skull Mounts And Virginia Law-37


    Here at the Newshound, we’re continually supportive of the tireless efforts put forth by those men and women who enforce state and federal game and fish regulations. And, for the most part, we promote respect and strict adherence to state game and hunting-related laws.

    But an incident occurring in Virginia this week has us scratching our head in confusion and bewilderment, to say the least.

    Expelled After Hunting-135



    From News 10 in Sacramento  :

    WILLOWS, CA - A 17-year-old Willows student will have the National Rifle Association behind him when he appeals his expulsion from school for having a shotgun in his pick-up truck.

    Like many youngsters his age, Gary Tudesko likes to hunt.  "I hunt ducks, geese, all types of waterfowl," said Tudesko.

    But last October, his recreational pursuits landed him in trouble at Willows High School.

    "I went hunting before school, me and my friend, and I didn't want to be late so I parked off campus at my school," Tudesko said.

    Tudesko was in class when he was called to the principal's office. He soon learned why.

    Caught In The Act!-12


    Their first mistake was filching the stacking treestand steps belonging to a Michigan State Police detective. The second was committing the act in view of the detective’s hidden trail camera. 

    And last week, two 20-year-old Midland County men owned-up to the Nov. 17 theft occurring in rural Homer Township.

    The confession took place just hours after an article about the incident appeared in the Midland Daily News on Jan. 1. A photo of the two suspects caught on Michigan State Police Detective Sgt. Andrew Longuski’s camouflage trail camera accompanied the news story.

    The Python Hunt Is On-12



    Newhound Python:

    An unusual number of consecutive days with record cold temperatures in typically balmy south Florida has prompted the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to encourage hunters to take advantage of the conditions to cull Burmese pythons and other unwanted invasive species on state wildlife manage areas (WMAs). 

    The reptiles are more likely to be in open areas to find warmth in the sun, making them vulnerable to hunters, said an agency spokesperson.

    Pistol-Packin’ Barista-9



    If you’ve been reading The Newshound in recent months, you’ve seen several references to the increasing number of women who own firearms in the U.S., both for hunting and for personal protection. 

    Just last week we told you about the growing popularity of firearms for women as Christmas gifts in 2009.

    One woman who was fortunate to have a caring husband who gave her a handgun for protection this Christmas already learned the value of her gift when she thwarted a would-be armed robbery at her drive-in coffee kiosk located in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

    Sunshine Espresso owner Michelle Cornelsen was working inside her shop last week when a 17-year-old male strolled up to the service window, pulled a gun and demanded money.

    Buck On A Bus-7


    To many city folks, the thought of a dead deer being transported in the aisle of a public school bus might seem unusual, even to the point of being distasteful.

    But it didn’t bother the members of the Rushford-Peterson High School basketball team, whose bus hit and killed a magnificent 10-point buck while returning from a game in a holiday tournament one night last week.
