    Remembering Dick Cabela: How a Small-Town Businessman Became an Outdoor Retail Titan-0

    by

    Richard N. Cabela, co-founder of the hunting, fishing, and outdoor retailer goliath, Cabela’s, died Monday at his home in Sidney, Nebraska. He was 77. A true entrepreneurial American success story, Dick, as he was best known, was cared for in his final hours by his wife Mary—his longtime partner in life, business, and the field.

    Born in Chappell, Nebraska, in 1936, Dick was known as a rambunctious boy who spent as much time as possible outdoors. But as young child, he was stricken with polio. Doctors told his parents that Dick might never walk again, which the couple and their young son took as a challenge more than a final diagnosis. With determination and some tough love from his parents, Dick was soon walking without assistance or the aid of braces. Throughout his life, he rarely spoke of his bout with the deadly disease, but surely it helped form the gritty work ethic Dick would become known for.

    Video: Students Rescue Buck Locked to Another Buck's Severed Head-1

    by

    Look closely. Although it appears as though both of these animals are dead, one of these bucks is still kicking.

    The two animals were discovered by Luke Laha, a wildlife management instructor at Pratt Community College in Kansas.

    Laha  told the Outdoor Hub’s Daniel Xu that he first saw the deer while scouting some property in south-central Kansas two months ago. “I saw it was a decently-sized buck with what I thought at the time was a smaller buck,” Laha said. “But then I saw that all that was left of the second one was the head, spine, and rib cage.”

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

    by

    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

    by

    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.

    Video: Rabbits Swarm Tourist on Okunoshima Island-0

    by

    This video shows just how nature – or in this case, rabbits - can get when left unchecked.

    Known as “Rabbit Island” or “Bunny Island,” Okunoshima is a Japanese island overrun with rabbits. The island got that way when eight rabbits were brought to the island during World War II to test the affects of mustard gas. The rabbits multiplied as rabbits do over the years (I guess none of that gas was fatal) until the island became what you see above.

    The island is well known as a tourist destination where visitors feed the pesky vermin.

    Minnesota DNR to Deploy Emergency Feeding Plan for Wild Deer -2

    by

    The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources agreed to move forward with an emergency feeding plan for wild deer in the northern part of the state Wednesday morning. Whitetails in the region have been hit hard by brutal temperatures and heavy snows this winter, reports the Star Tribune.

    Although reluctant to allow the emergency feeding, the DNR felt pressure from state hunters and the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association to take action. The two agencies met multiple times in past weeks to resolve their conflicting opinions about supplemental feeding. Last week DNR wildlife chief Paul Telander said the agency objected to the practice of feeding deer. He cited its high cost and questionable effectiveness.

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

    by

    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

    by

    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.

    NJ Girl Lands Record Black Grouper in Key West-0

    by

    A 16-pound black grouper will likely earn Brielle Bennett a new IGFA female Junior record.

    Bennett caught the 16-pound fish off Key West on Nov. 24, 2013 while on vacation with her family. The New Jersey native was fishing with a live grunt when the grouper took her bait and headed for the depths.

    She quickly put the screws to the reel and landed the monster in double-quick time.

    The fish was weighed and documented before being let loose — none the worse for wear.

    The current record is 13 pounds, 8 ounces.

    Q&A with Johan Calitz, an Old School African Hunting Guide-0

    by

    While in attendance at the annual Dallas Safari Club convention, I was lucky enough to sit down with two African Professional Hunters — one old-school, the other a relatively newcomer (check out the Newshound blog later this week for that interview). Their combined experience culminates in nearly a century's worth of stories. Both offered insights on the Africa that was, that is, and that will be.  

    Johan Calitz began his career accompanying his father, clients, and friends afield in Rhodesia at a young age under the mentorship of some of the most well-known professional hunters of that time. Almost 40 years later, he is internationally recognized, not only for his steadfast style of elephant hunting, but for his pioneering work in the hunting DVD market and his participation in the hit TV show Under Wild Skies.
