    Officials Plan to Shoot Barred Owls to Protect Endangered Spotted Owls-28

    by

    Barred owls are bullies.

    They use their larger size and superior hunting skills to make things difficult for the much smaller and highly endangered spotted owl.

    In forest areas where the two species are found, barred owls thrive while the spotted owl suffers. Because of this, the Obama Administration announced a new plan that would allow government workers to shoot selected barred owls so that their spotted cousins might thrive. It’s survival of the fittest at its best.

    Sneak Peek at Critical Hunting, Fishing, Shooting Bill-3

    by

    Stay tuned over the next days for breaking news of federal legislation that could greatly improve where we fish, hunt, and shoot, the type of equipment we can use while doing it, and even the sorts of animals we can bring home.

    Outdoor Life obtained a draft from the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance that outlines H.R. 4089, a package of four high-priority bills aimed at protecting hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting.

    The most important part of this legislation is a resurrection of The Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act, which would guarantee that National Forest and Bureau of Land Management areas are open for hunting, fishing, and shooting unless closed out of necessity. It would reverse a set of previous judicial rulings that restrict hunting, fishing and shooting on these public lands.

    Mutated, Two-Headed Trout Found in Idaho -4

    by


    I’m not a scientist -- I don’t even play one on TV.

    But even with my limited knowledge of the scientific world, I know enough to say without fear of reprisal that two-headed fish are not generally an indicator of a healthy watershed. The two-headed fish in question is a trout and was just one of many abnormal fish that were regulated to an appendix of a scientific study commissioned by the J.R. Simplot Company.

    36 Vehicles Break Through Ice in Wisconsin Fishing Tournament-3

    by

    Over the weekend, a group of ice fishermen fishing a tournament on Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin decided to to ignore a thin ice warning. They paid the price for it. This from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

    " 'We had some cars that got wet,' a dispatcher with the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department said. 'We had cars parked on the ice like it was a parking lot. Usually they do park out on the ice. That's not unusual. It's just that they parked too close together. It was too much for the ice conditions this year.'

    by

    The crashing moose population in Minnesota has DNR officials considering whether or not to hold a hunting season next year. They will make their decision over the next few weeks.

    The population dropped from 8,840 in 2006 to 4,230 this winter. Biologists said that while hunting pressure and wolf predation were contributing factors, they were not the main cause.

    Is It Hunting If You're Shooting A Camera?-13

    by

    Hunting author and wildlife photographer Richard P. Smith believes the time is right for hunting moose in Michigan – with a camera.

    Moose were reintroduced to the state in 1985 when 59 Algonquin Provincial Park moose from Canada were released in Marquette County. Since then the herd growth has been less than impressive.

    British Skippers Busted For Scamming $99.9M in Illegally Caught Fish-4

    by

    The 17 skippers who admitted to taking part in an industrial-scale illegal fishing operation were fined a total of $1.14M this week.

    Considered the UK’s biggest fraud involving illegal caught fish, the men landed and processed approximately $99.9M worth of herring and mackerel over a three-year period, from 2002 to 2005, according to BBC. The skippers were able to sell the illegally caught fish while evading the European Union’s fishing quotas through a sophisticated system of rigged scales, falsified logbooks and underground pipes.

    Thanks in part to a $300,000 pledge from the Rocky Mountain Elk foundation, wapiti will be reintroduced to southwest Virginia.

    Plans are in place to relocate up to 75 elk from Kentucky to Buchanan County. Wildlife officials hope to host a hunting season in five years. The elk have already been trapped and are being monitored to make sure they are in good health.

    The Kentucky heard is the largest in the East and now has more than 10,000 animals.

    Murder Fur Hire: Animal Rights Activist Solicits Hitman on Facebook-9

    by

    Meredith Lowell, 27, needed something shocking—an event to make a bold statement—prior to her distributing leaflets on the evils of animal abuse. So she went on Facebook to solicit the murder of a random fur wearer to take place outside a library or playground—you know, some place social—in her hometown of Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

    According to investigators, the FBI was notified in November that Lowell had offered between $830 to $850 on a Facebook page, created under the alias of Anne Lowery, for the murder of a random fur wearer. An FBI employee posing as a hitman responded. Lowell offered the undercover agent $730 or the equivalent in jewelry to kill a victim at least 12 years old but "preferably 14 years old or older.”
