    Welcome to New York II -23

    by

     

    By all appearances, three members of a Brooklyn, New York family were victimized by the city’s harsh and unmerciful firearms laws this week, after police executed a search warrant on their home and found 30 unregistered guns stored in the attic. 

    Thomas and Kathleen Siano, and their son, Vincent, have been charged with criminal possession of firearms.

    Bass Myth Exploded-3

    by

    Despite the widely held notion that catching aggressive bass off nests during spawning season can deplete largemouth populations, a new University of Florida study published in a national fisheries journal this week indicates otherwise.

    Largemouth bass are easily the most popular gamefish among American anglers. When the fish spawn in early spring, male bass make nests in calm, shallow water, court females, and then protect the eggs and hatchlings for several weeks.

    Sierra Club: We Support Hunting But...-17

    by

    In recent years The Sierra Club, the nation’s largest environmental membership organization, has gone to great lengths to appear supportive of hunting, fishing and scientific wildlife management in an attempt to distance itself from more recognizable—and radical—anti-hunting organizations.

    It’s now a supporting member of a national professional organization of hunting and fishing writers and features biographies of its “conservation leaders” who hunt and fish on its Web site.

    by

     

    Thousands of minks are marauding through the Brandenburg countryside, killing chickens and woodland creatures after suspected animal activists released thousands from a fur farm.

    Police said they are still searching for those responsible for the break-in at the farm in Frankenförde, which resulted in the release of 4,000 minks last Sunday evening.

    Tennessee Bowhunters May Pack Heat-6

    by

    Tennessee has joined a growing number of states that are adjusting firearms laws and hunting regulations in order to allow hunters to carry handguns for personal protection while afield.

    A measure passed easily by both houses of the Tennessee General Assembly and signed into law last week by Gov. Phil Bredesen allows those with valid concealed handgun permits to carry pistols for personal protection while bowhunting.

    These Girls Can Shoot-12

    by

     

    Put down your men’s basketball brackets for just a minute and read about a team that made NCAA history this past weekend in another college sport—competitive shooting.

    The Texas Christian University Horned Frog Rifle Team won their school’s first-ever NCAA Rifle Championships on Friday and Saturday, posting a two-day aggregate score of 4,675.

    Bad Call: Gun Retailer Denied Little League Sponsorship-14

    by

    Nothing is more aggravating to baseball fans than a bad call by those officiating a game. And in New Jersey last week, the committee in charge of a little league program made a real stinker.

    In an 8-1 vote, the South Orange-Maplewood (NJ) Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken baseball league rejected an offer from a local licensed firearms retailer to become a $300 sponsor for his son’s team because of the potential controversy it may cause.

    The Cowboy Code-22

    by

    On Wednesday, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal signed legislation adopting an official Wyoming state code based on the tenets known in the West as “Cowboy Ethics.”

    Although the historic Code of the West was unwritten, cowboys, trappers, hunters and others in the U.S. frontier knew it was about maintaining honesty, integrity and courage in a wide-open region where the affects of government barely reached and laws were not always enforced.

    Animals To Get Lawyers-15

    by

    Picture this: You’ve caught and landed your first Northern pike exceeding the magic 40-inch mark. It wasn’t easy, though, as the behemoth put up a respectable battle, and it took you more than 10 minutes to finally get it into the net.

    You’re understandably proud of your angling achievement, and you posted the photos of the fish and details of the catch on your blog. 

    Days later, you receive a phone call from a person identifying himself as the state-appointed attorney for the pike, and he says you’re being charged with cruel and inhumane treatment of an animal because of the extended fight.
