    Photos: Otter vs. Alligator-2


    Yesterday we showed you some of the cutest 10-month-old cougar kitties ever, ripping a deer carcass to shreds.

    Today we’re proud to post a cute fuzzy otter playing vampire on the back of an alligator.

    That’s right. We have photos of an otter tearing chucks out of North America’s top reptile.

    Video: 2 Male Lions Kill Intruding Lion (Graphic Image Warning)-2


    Hunters know that nature can be pretty brutal, and this video confirms it.

    The two 9-year-old dominant male lions attacked and killed a younger male lion who got caught chasing a buffalo into their territory.

    According to the video description, the footage was shot on the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.

    Is It A Wolf, Coyote, or Coydog?-16


    A friend in New Hampshire, Mike Romano, emailed us this morning with a fascinating story and two intriguing photos. Here’s his tale:

    “So Friday morning we woke up to several of our horse fences broken down and couldn't figure out what really happened to them until I saw the attached Saturday afternoon. I had 9 deer in my driveway on and off most of the day Saturday, but in the afternoon I saw they were on high alert, so I looked out my side window and saw this.”

    Girl Shoots Mountain Lion that Stalked Her Brother-1


    During the course of a single week, three cougars were killed at a family ranch in northern Washington this month. The latest big cat was killed by 11-year-old Shelby White, who shot an emaciated lion that had been stalking her older brother near their home in Twisp, Wash.

    Thomas White awoke at 2:30 a.m. to the barking of the family dog on Feb. 20, reports the Methow Valley News. White walked outside and discovered a cougar trying to enter an enclosure of cows and calves. Although he scared away the cougar without incident, the lion returned two hours later and White drove it off a second time.

    Video: Biker Tumbles Down Mountain After Grizzly Bear Charge-1


    Canadian Brad Paras and his cousin Dan England were mountain biking in Jasper National Park last week when Paras spotted a grizzly and her cub roughly 35 feet from him.

    Paras spewed an "Oh, s--t!" before making a hasty getaway. (More appropriate words have never been muttered.) Unfortunately, his “getaway” took him off the trail by a drop of about 50 feet in elevation that dead-ended into a tree.

    While Paras was dealing with the crash, England got off his bike and got his pepper spray ready. The mother grizz charged England but stopped just shy of the spray’s effective range of 10 meters before heading back into the woods. Paras climbed back up the mountain with the bike in tow to find his cousin watching the bear disappear into the forest.

    Video: Woman Kicked in the Head by Cow Moose-0


    A woman walking down the street in Smithers, B.C. was caught by surprise last week when a cow moose sucker punched her from behind.

    This short video shows the moose standing near a house along King Street while a woman walks past. She either doesn’t see the moose or is completely unfazed since they’re common in the area. But seconds later, the cow flattens its ears and follows her into the road. The moose speeds up and the woman turns around just in time to get kicked in the head.

    Q&A with Hannes Els, a Young-Gun African Hunting Guide-0


    At the annual Dallas Safari Club convention I was lucky enough to sit down with two African Professional Hunters – one old school, one a relatively new comer - whose combined experience culminates in nearly a century worth of stories. 

    Hannes Els (the relative new comer) is the owner and operator of Limcroma Safaris. He began his career at the ripe age of 12 when he guided clients after plains game in his native South Africa. Twenty-two years later, he is one of the most sought after PH’s in Africa and his outfit hosts hundreds of clients each year.

    Gayne Young: You’ve been guiding since you were 12?

    Hannes Els: Yeah. Not professionally, of course. You can’t get a license in South Africa until you’re 21. That’s when I got mine. I couldn’t wait.

    Louisiana Hunter Gored by Wounded Buck (Graphic Image Warning)-4


    On Christmas Eve last year Louisiana hunter Bobby Neames shot a big 6-point buck before even climbing his stand. But 15 minutes later the buck charged, and Neames found himself fighting for his life.

    The 46-year-old hunter set out the morning before Christmas in East Feliciana Parish, La., reports the Louisana Sportsman. Neames was expecting company for lunch and still had cooking to do, but the rut peaked on Christmas and he couldn’t resist a quick hunt.

    Neames walked just 400 yards from his home to his hunting spot. As he approached the food plot near his box stand, he stopped in a shooting lane to scan the field. He spotted a 6-point eating rice bran from a feeder 75 yards away. Neames recognized the deer as a buck he’d been hunting for three years, although this was the first time he encountered it during daylight.

    But the bruiser saw Neames at the field’s edge and took off toward a thicket. Neames backpedalled and dropped to one knee, raising his .270 Winchester. He aimed for its neck, the only shot available, and squeezed the trigger. The buck made it just 20 yards along a main trail before Neames heard it crash.

    Neames said he usually waits 45 minutes before recovering a deer. But he felt pressed for time and was confident in his shot, so instead he set off to retrieve the buck after waiting just 15 minutes.

    Video: Wrestling a Giant Grizzly Bear-0


    Going face-to-face with a giant grizzly bear. Laying on the ground while its monstrous paws wave about. These details might sound like the beginning of an exciting This Happened To Me tale, but they're all part of a day's work for Doug Seus.

    Seus, 71, a professional bear trainer, has been working with bears for decades. The bears he trains have appeared in Hollywood movies and shows. The bear in this video is Bart the Bear 2, an 8-foot 6-inch tall grizzly. Seus makes it look easy playing around with and telling commands to a 1,300-pound bear.

    Hemingway's Gun Permit and Thousands More Documents Now Available at JFK Museum-0


    Most readers of outdoor writing know a good deal about Ernest Hemingway. But for those of us who want to find out the details — like for example what Mary Hemingway's favorite hamburger recipe was — there's good news coming from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.

    More than 2,500 documents collected from Hemingway's farm outside of Havana have been newly digitized and made available at the museum, according to a story yesterday by The New York Times.

    What makes the collection all the more interesting is that Hemingway seemed to be a hoarder, saving everything from Christmas cards to tickets to bullfights to the Cuban gun permit pictured above.
