    EPA Denies Lead Ammo Ban-8

    by

    Your lead ammunition is safe for now. The Environmental Protection Agency said on Friday that it did not have the authority to enact a petition that called for a ban on all lead ammunition used for hunting.

    “This is a tremendous victory for all sportsmen, hunters and gun-owners.  As the trade association for America’s firearms and ammunition industry, NSSF is thankful to the tens of thousands who answered our call to action and made their voices heard. Today’s victory belongs to them,” said National Shooting Sports Foundation President Stephen Sanetti.

    Environmentalists run Shimano smear campaign-10

    by

    A recent article by Doug Olander of Sport Fishing Magazine has uncovered one of the most heinous and misguided attacks on the recreational fishing industry in recent memory.

    Olander’s piece is about Shame on Shimano, a campaign that started earlier this summer and is backed by the Natural Resources Defense Council.  And what exactly is the campaign’s claim? Shame on Shimano says that the tackle company is out to destroy the oceans.

    Sara Brandenburg becomes youngest Grand Slammer-6

    by

    Sara Rose Brandenburg may be be the best 16-year-old hunter in the world. Last month she completed a North American Grand Slam (which requires a hunter to kill all four species of North American sheep through fair chase hunting), making her the youngest female hunter to ever accomplish the feat.

    With a tricky 325-yard shot, Sara Rose Brandenburg dropped a massive 41-inch Stone sheep and completed one of the most difficult hunting feats in the world: The North American Grand Slam. What’s even more impressive, is that Brandenburg is just 16 years old, making her by far the youngest woman to ever complete a Grand Slam (which requires a  hunter to kill all four species of North American sheep through fair chase practices).

    Sara has hunted big game all over the world, but she started chasing sheep only one year ago. In short order Sara killed a Dall sheep in Alaska, a desert bighorn in Mexico and a Rocky Mountain bighorn in British Colombia.

    Oregon Hunter, 84, Draws Sheep Tag-5

    by

    For any hunter of the Western states who tries year-after-year to draw a big game permit for a coveted elk area or a once-in-a-lifetime species hunt, here’s the feel-good story of the day.

    Fred Riggs, a lifelong hunter who has lived in Oregon since the 1930s, didn’t even apply for a bighorn ram permit until he was 83 years old because he figured the odds were against him. This year, on his second try, Riggs, now 84, hit paydirt, receiving one of the Lookout Mountain unit’s two annual tags.

    More Politicians Tote Guns For Campaign Ads-5

    by

    November is a little more than two months away and two important seasons are around the corner: hunting season and election season. This fall, you can expect to see those two seasons get mixed together. Maybe it’s being fueled by the Tea Party movement, maybe candidates want to appear tough in a time of need, or maybe Sarah Pain set the trend, but either way, more and more politicians are donning camo and toting guns in their campaign advertisements.

    Hooked: Angler Catches Coyote-5

    by

    Onalaska, Wisc. angler Darren Zumach was fishing for bass on a Mississippi River slough earlier this month when he received a cell phone call from his buddy Bruce Chandler, who was in a separate boat in the same general area. His pal and sometimes-tournament partner informed him that he’d just hooked a 25- to 30-pound pound coyote and needed some help landing and releasing it.

    “What have you been smoking?” Zumach matter-of-factly asked his buddy.

    Illegal 4-Wheeler Sentenced to YouTube Confession-8

    by

    A 29-year-old man who ignored a closed and posted state forest road and caused substantial damage while breaching a locked gate with his Chevy Blazer 4x4 was sentenced by a Washington state judge to make a public apology and confession on YouTube.

    After a six-member District Court jury found Camas, WA resident Rickey Sharratt guilty of misdemeanor destruction of state-owned property earlier this year, a Washington Department of Natural Resources officer came up with the novel idea of filming a video featuring the public lands scofflaw confessing his crime for the viewing public to enjoy. Sentencing Judge James Swanger liked the concept, giving Sharratt a choice between the video or mandatory time on a public service work crew.

    Panfish Plunderers Face Federal Charges-3

    by

    Three men are looking at big fines and possibly even jail time after illegally catching and selling panfish last winter in Vermont and New York. In what has been dubbed “Operation Panfish Plunder” Ronald Martel, Garth Martel and Richard Webster caught illegal limits of panfish in Vermont and then took them to New York to sell at a sporting goods store.

    It’s not illegal to sell panfish in New York or Vermont, but since the trio transported an illegal amount of fish across state lines, they violated a federal statute called the Lacey Act. The maximum penalty is five years in jail and $20,000 in fines per charge. They’ve each been charged with four felonies in federal district court.

    Ted Nugent Fined for Illegal Deer Baiting-24

    by

    Ted Nugent was fined $1, 750 and pleaded no contest last week for illegally baiting deer during a hunt on his television show “Spirit of the Wild.” The rock star and gun rights advocate used C’mere Deer, a high-end deer attractant, to harvest two deer in California where baiting for deer is illegal, according to the Appeal-Democrat, a local California newspaper.

    Shepherd Finds Monster Rack, Big Bucks-6

    by

    Just by sniffing out an old deer carcass, a five-year-old German Shepherd named Sweety has potentially earned his owners thousands of dollars and propelled them into the world of antler mania. 

    While roaming around last spring, Sweety led his owner Richard Ewing to a deer carcass that was rotting away on their property in Ohio. To Ewing’s astonishment, the carcass was attached to a massive pair of non-typical antlers that stretched out over 29 points and measured 24 2/8 inches on the inside spread. When the Boone and Crockett Club eventually took the tape to the rack, it scored 263 inches. It will likely become the fifth largest deer to ever be scored in Ohio, according to The News-Herald.
