    Army Corps of Engineers Propose Oregon Cormorant Cull to Benefit Salmon, Steelhead-0


    In a move that’s sure to enrage PETA, the Audubon Society, and a host of other groups that often oppose conservation efforts, federal officials proposed killing almost 3,000 cormorants that reside on or near East Sand Island at the mouth of the Columbia River in northwest Oregon.

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers revealed the plan Thursday, according to the Statesmen Journal. Although most folks typically recognize USACE for its involvement in public infastructure, the organization also works on environmental causes including habitat restoration and protecting endangered species. The plan cites an overabundance of birds and their insatiable appetite for steelhead and juvenile salmon (an endangered species).

    Record Freeze on the Great Lakes Has Big Impact on Fish and Waterfowl-0


    This winter’s merciless conditions have brought reports of wildlife struggling to survive all across the country. The Minnesota DNR reluctantly rolled out an emergency feeding plan for its whitetails and a cold-stun kill in North Carolina devastated trout fishing prospects. And even though we’ve officially made it to spring, scientists say the effects from this winter will persist for months to come in the Great Lakes region.

    The Great Lakes have experienced near-record ice cover this year, with 48 percent of the five lakes still covered in ice as of April 10. That figure is down from the high on March 6 when 92 percent of the five lake’s 90,000-plus square miles were choked with ice, according to The Atlantic Cities. In comparison, ice coverage of the Great Lakes maxed out at about 38 percent in 2013 and just 13 percent in 2012. (This NASA photo shows 80 percent ice coverage on Feb. 19.)

    South Carolina's Controversial Cormorant Hunt Culls 11K Birds-3


    More than 1,000 South Carolina hunters received special permits this winter to hunt double-crested cormorants on two lakes in the east-central part of the state. In the span of just one month, hunters harvested 11,653 of the fish-eating birds. One hunter alone reported killing 278 birds, according to The State newspaper.

    Local anglers requested state action to quell the rising numbers of cormorants, which they say eat enough baitfish to negatively impact game fish populations. The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources responded by introducing a special hunting program this year on Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie.

    Epic Snow Goose Shoot Caught on Video-1


    It's snow goose season across most of the country. Snow goose hunting is really about long days of scouting, early-morning hours spent setting up decoys, and long sits in frozen fields (check out our web feature on snow goose hunting maniac Kevin Addy).

    Video: Golden Eagle Takes Down Two Wood Grouse-3


    This video uploaded to comes from Vest-Agder, Norway. An amateur photographer was out filming two male wood grouse fighting for hens during the mating season. Out of nowhere, a golden eagle swoops down and kills both grouse.

    You gotta give that the second grouse credit for sticking around and trying to fight the eagle, though it probably wasn't the smartest decision.

    Zippo Woodsman
    I’m a hatchet man. There may be no other tool that’s as capable of handling so many outdoors tasks: whittling a spear, splitting a buck’s brisket, limbing a tree, pounding tent pegs, truing a table, defending a family… But Zippo’s new Woodsman tool may trump even a 3-pound hatchet. The versatile Woodsman features a mallet, a keen-edged hatchet, a peg-pulling claw, and a tempered saw blade that’s capable of making quick work of limbs up to 4 inches in diameter. It pulls hard duty cleaning up deadfall in my back yard and is a fixture in my pickup. ($80, —Andrew McKean
