The Virginia House of Delegates passed a bill yesterday that would allow statewide hunting on Sunday.
This following the House Committee on Agriculture, Chesapeake and Natural Resources voting 12 to 10 to push the bill to a full House vote last week. The state Senate is sitting on a similar bill and is expected to be vote on it by week’s end.
The 6X7 bull was discovered on Jan. 9 in Byrnedale, Elk County. Wildlife officials ordered tests to determine the cause of death. Results show the bull succumbed to rumen acidosis, a disease that occurs when carbohydrates such as grain or corn are suddenly introduced to an animal’s diet. Wild deer and elk are both susceptible to rumen acidosis, as are domesticated animals like cattle and sheep.
It's official, the Boone and Crockett Club announced today that an Alaskan-Yukon moose killed by Heinz E. Naef of Dawson City, Yukon, is a new world record. The bull scored 263 5/8 inches. The previous record bull was killed in Alaska in 1994 and scored 261 5/8.
As pythons continue to wreak havoc on the Florida Everglades, they are continually coming in contact with alligators. Some of these battles have been documented in photos and video, but usually they are long, drawn-out struggles. YouTube ojatro user captured such an encounter a few years ago, but played his video at X6 speed. The result? A web video sensation. Check out the clip here…
It's been a long, cold week and if you're like us, you are probably ready to cut loose for the weekend. Well, apparently so is this deer. If you don't think this video is funny … just chill bro, it will be Monday again soon enough.
As for the rest of you, do you think the audio on this YouTube video is real, or is this some video editing trickery?
Deer-related vehicle crashes are relatively common, but they’re not often captured on camera. This YouTube video of a snowmobile trek in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula shows footage of a young deer barreling out of the woods and smacking into a snowmobiler’s windshield.
A few weeks ago, a pair of snowboarders made headlines after they were fined for chasing a moose down a ski hill. Well, now it seems the moose are looking for payback. This video, uploaded to LiveLeak, shows a cow moose wreaking havoc on a ski hill. When one of the skiers tries to shepherd her off the run, the moose charges.
Here's a tip for folks unfamiliar with the temperament of cow moose: If she has her ears pinned back and hackles raised, get out of the way quickly.
New Hampshire's moose population has suffered a significant decline in recent years. To understand why moose are dying, state Fish and Game officials are launching a collar tracking study this month. The state's moose herd has decreased by about 40 percent since the 1990s, falling from roughly 7,000 moose to the current population of 4,000 animals, according to WBZ-TV. New Hampshire Fish and Game reports the population peaked in 1996 at approximately 7,600 moose.
Miss America contestant Theresa Vail (left) and hunting show host Eva Shockey (right) are two of the most promising up-and-comers in the outdoor industry. And, we're interviewing them at the SHOT Show next week. If you could ask either of them one question, what would it be? Send your question to email@example.com and we'll select the best three for the interview.
Check out both interviews later next week on OutdoorLife.com.
You’ve just got to love GoPro cameras—even if they are capable of capturing video of your imminent demise. It’s hard to say whether or not this wild boar was intentionally charging the hunter or simply running blindly away from hounds, but there is a high pucker factor involved here. We don’t speak very good French here at OL, so we’d like to offer our deepest apologies if the language in the video is somehow offensive.
