    Duck Dynasty Responds to Morrissey's Insults Over Jimmy Kimmel Show-6

    by

    The Robertson family of Duck Dynasty turned the proverbial other cheek to 1980s Smith’s frontman Morrissey on Jimmy Kimmel Live by saying they had no problem with the singer, his displeasure for hunters and meat eaters, or vegans in general. This, of course, after the always-melancholy singer canceled his appearance on the show citing that he couldn’t risk being seen with the Robertson family as they are “animal serial killers.”

    Animal serial killers?

    U.S. Government's Guidelines for Yeti Hunting in Nepal-4

    by

    Slate.com's blog The Vault dug up a painfully bureaucratic memo on yeti hunting from the U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu. The memo is from 1959, it was signed by Counselor Ernest H. Fisk, and offers some guidelines for any adventurers hunting yeti. No, this is not a joke.

    The memo reads as follows:

    Carp Fishery Owner Sues Evironment Agency Over Otter Breeding-0

    by

    Waen Wen Fishery owner Brian Dodson is goody well buggered by the bloody otters that devoured his 22,000 prized carp. So much in fact that he’s suing the British Environment Agency for more than $3,000,000 USD stating that they encouraged the menacing otters to breed near his farm. 

    Dodson, 60, claims the EA illegally built otter “holts,” or burrows, on the  River Cegin less than two miles from his farm. This act basically put hungry otters on Brian’s front door step.

    Just when you thought it was safe to back in the air… cue Jaws theme song…

    Bloomberg Businessweek is reporting that Airbus and the German airline Lufthansa are looking at the possibility of covering their jets with shark skin for better fuel mileage. Ok, it’s not actual shark skin.

    One More World-Record Muskie-0

    by

    $685 Million to be Cut from Federal Wildlife and Public Lands Funds-12

    by

    Barring a last-minute agreement, $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts will be automatically "sequestered" from the federal 2013 fiscal year budget on March 1. Over the next decade, $1.2 trillion in federal spending—an average of $109 billion annually—will be trimmed in similar "sequestrations."
       
    If the budget cuts go into effect, on March 1 all federal agencies must comply with a directive to cut "all non-exempt nondefense discretionary funding" by a uniform 8.2 percent, meaning it will affect nearly every function of wildlife and public lands management, including greater risk of wildfires, less poaching enforcement, slower gun background checks and drastically reduced capacity to enforce environmental regulations.

    Biologists: Giant Goldfish May Take Over Lake Tahoe-0

    by

    Not all is golden in Reno. Well, it is but not the good kind. Biologists are worried that Lake Tahoe is becoming overrun by goldfish.

    The abandoned pets first started showing up in the lake’s pristine water in the 1990s. In 2011, biologists discovered evidence that the eight-for-a-dollar fish down at the Wal-Mart species were adapting to the lake: They caught a 14.2-inch, 3.4-pound specimen, and many more gargantuan golds have been discovered since.

    Bow Mag: New Broadhead Bullet-2

    by

    So, a hunting buddy forwarded this video to me the other day proclaiming its awesomeness. As for me? Well, I think I must be missing something. I have a hard enough time getting my arrows to fly straight with a 125-grain broadhead and can’t imagine how’d they would fly with what amounts to a 300-grain blunt.

    Video: Officer Frees Tangled Bucks by Shooting Apart Rack-10

    by

    This video, first posted on the Illinois DNR Facebook page, shows a trio of officers (one conservation officer, a state trooper and forest preserve officer) closing in on two tangled bucks in a cornfield. It's clear that the two deer are close to exhaustion (and probably  death) when one of the officers starts shooting.
