    While tracking animals for research is nothing new, this video offers a great inside look at how researchers handle the whole darting and collaring process. Elk biologist Jeremy Banfield also notes in the video that, to his knowledge, this is the first time an elk has been outfitted with a video camera.

    Louisiana Becomes 32nd State to Allow Hunting With a Suppressor -0

    by

    Louisiana hunting grounds may be quieter this fall after Governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill last week to extend suppressor use to all game animals in the state.

    Taking effect August 1, House Bill 186 will make Louisiana the third state in 2014 to legalize suppressor use for hunting, according to OutdoorHub. Rep. Cameron Henry sponsored the bill, building off a state law that already allowed hunters to  shoot nuisance species like beaver and nutria while using suppressors.

    by

    After only a few hours of consideration, a Boulder County jury has found ex-cop, Sam Carter, guilty of killing "Big Boy," a beloved elk who frequented an upscale Boulder community.

    The jury convicted Carter on all nine counts filed, four of which were felonies, and concluded that he had schemed to kill Big Boy and lied about putting the animal down because it had been injured. The charges included poaching, evidence tampering, and unlawful taking of a big-game animal.

    Officials Reduce Moose Hunting in Maine and Alaska to Better Manage Declining Populations-0

    by

    This winter we reported on a handful of new moose studies that cropped up in different states like Maine and New Hampshire, as biologists set out to learn why moose numbers were plummeting. Now, in response to preliminary data, wildlife officials in Maine and Alaska have adjusted their hunting seasons in an attempt to better manage shrinking moose populations.

    Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife will reduce moose permits by 25 percent for the 2014 fall season due to the recent impact of winter ticks, the agency announced Friday. Officials in Alaska shut down drawing permit hunts altogether for moose on Alaska’s North Slope, according to a Department of Fish and Game press release from Monday. Both states cited higher than average mortality rates as cause for curtailing their annual hunts.
