    As New York Looks To Limit Landowner Liability, Access Could Get Easier - 0

    I have often wondered what the world was like before the days of the electronic media release.

    I suspect there was much of the same with one difference: The barrage of releases cluttered up actual mailboxes instead of those of the virtual variety.

    That said, there are times when one of those releases contains information I'm actually interested in. One such release made its way to my inbox from New York City (of all places).

    The release highlighted New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's list of proposed projects designed to increase and improve public access. But the item that caught my eye might not be the one that you’d expect. [ Read Full Post ]

    President Obama’s Budget is a Mixed Bag for Outdoorsmen - 0

    The president recently unveiled his new budget for 2015. For hunters and anglers, it’s a good-news-bad-news scenario. Some things make perfect sense while others will leave you scratching your head.

    Either way, the president’s budget is a starting place, when it comes to protecting access and investing in America’s public lands.

    The Good
    LWCF:
    The president has included full funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund. LWCF helps pay for fishing access sites, boat ramps, and protecting key habitat, using royalties that oil companies pay for offshore oil drilling. LWCF has given American hunters and anglers some premier spots for chasing big game. Places like the Tenderfoot Acquisition in Montana, the Silvio E. Conte National Wildlife Refuge in New England, and inholdings in the Tahoe National Forest in California. [ Read Full Post ]

    Video: Grizzly Bears vs Campsite - 1

    Zoo attendees in Billings, Mont., were treated to a scene of destruction Saturday as grizzly bears Bruno and Ozzy were let loose in a fake campsite to do what bears do in the woods. The bears shredded a tent, a sleeping bag, and chairs; knocked over and tore through a garbage can; and ripped into food containers. The only thing that survived was a bear-proof cooler that neither bruin could manage to get into.  

    The purpose of the demonstration was to allow Bruno and Ozzy to work through some deep emotional issues both had carried since childhood. OK...

    The real reason for the show was to demonstrate how most bear-proof items aren’t bear proof at all. [ Read Full Post ]

    Whitetail Hunting Tips: Secrets to Off-Season Scouting - 1

    While most hunters spend their spring weekends waiting for turkey season, Aaron Milliken spends hour after hour studying Google Earth. He dedicates so much time to the virtual mapping program partly because it's his job, but also because he knows it's the first critical step in finding and patterning mature bucks. Milliken is a Land Specialist with Whitetail Properties (a real-estate company that deals some of the best deer hunting land in the country) and it's his job to assess properties and predict how trophy bucks will utilize them.

    Earlier this month I spent a weekend scouting and shed hunting with Milliken on his home turf in west-central Illinois. Later this year we'll hunt the rut in this classic Midwestern whitetail country, but first we need to find the right place to hunt. Here's what we did to get started, first with aerial scouting through Google Earth and then by putting boots on the ground.

    After 6 Years, Hunter Finally Takes Monster Wild Hog in North Carolina - 5

    A hunter from Conetoe, N.C. killed this enormous wild hog after tracking the animal for a month. The huge hog maxed out a set of scales at 500 pounds, according to North Carolina Sportsman.

    For six years the hog evaded members of the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club in the Indian Woods area of Bertie County, N.C. Hunters were aware of the hog for several years, and in 2011 game cameras started capturing photos as it roamed the 1,886-acre club. [ Read Full Post ]
