    Controversy Over Swedish Wolf Hunt-7


    It turns out that the U.S. isn't the only country that is having a problem figuring out how to manage its wolf population. Sweden has a few hundred wolves and had set up a hunt to cull 20 animals from the population in 2011.

    Hunters were allowed to target wolves in Sweden for the first time in 46 years. But the hunt has been met with resistance from the European Union.

    Both the licensed hunting of wolves and the set limit of the number of wolves in the country, as well as plans for the transfer of wolves from other countries, include elements that seem incompatible with EU rules for the conservation of predatory animals, EU Environment Commissioner, Janez Potocnik told The Local.

    To celebrate the holiday, Outdoor Life is giving away one of the most important guns of all time: a Red Ryder BB gun.

    Has the Red Ryder been a stalwart in the deer woods? Have soldiers used it to defend our nation? Has it made a name for itself as a flat-shooting tack driver?  The answer to all of these questions is no.

    But, the Red Ryder has introduced countless kids to shooting and hunting (who didn't have one of these as a kid), making it a sweetheart for sportsmen everywhere. The gun is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.

    Hunters Save the Day in North Dakota-2


    Theodore Roosevelt was an avid big-game hunter, a conservationist and the driving force behind the country's national park system. Today, Teddy would be proud.

    In Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, hunters have taken more than 200 elk in an attempt to stop overpopulation and overgrazing. Wildlife officials hope that 275 cow elk will be killed by Jan. 20. 

    The plan to allow hunters to cull the park's booming elk herd was controversial at first, because it's unorthodox to allow hunting in national parks. But Congress OK'd the proposal of opening the park gates to hunters, and so far everything has gone according to plan.

    As we prepare to turn our calendars forward to January 2011, several prominent American handgun manufacturers have already introduced new commemorative models marking the historic 100-year anniversary of what is arguably the most famous, durable and imitated pistol design the world has ever known—the 1911.

    And while the centennial of the 1911 handgun will be met with great anticipation by shooters, collectors and gun marketers alike, it is not passing unnoticed in the state of Utah, where its inventor, John Moses Browning, lived and worked in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

    Student to be Expelled After Accidentally Bringing Gun to Parking Lot-20


    A 16-year-old honor roll student will likely be expelled from her high school for accidentally leaving her unloaded, cased hunting rifle in the locked trunk of her car at the school parking lot.

When DeReu, a member of student council and the varsity cheerleading team, heard that a contraband dog would be working the school parking lot in search of drugs that day, she remembered the gun in her car and told school officials about it,  according to

    She will now have to  attend a hearing on Monday in front of the school board, where she will probably be expelled.
