A canine’s ability to detect scent has made it an invaluable tool to man. Federal, state, and local agencies use dogs to detect everything from explosives to contraband. Hunters use them to locate and track game. Dogs are even used to detect diseases such as cancer, or to alert low blood-sugar levels in diabetic humans. So it’s beyond me why some states still don’t allow hunters to use their dogs to legally track a wounded deer.
State agencies say they have many reasons why they won’t allow it: enforcement issues, fear of herd decimation, concern for dogs’ safety, etc. The loophole, however, is that it’s pretty hard to stop someone from walking their leashed dog in the woods. Of course, I’m not condoning breaking state laws … but when it comes to recovering game, you’d think state agencies would be on board with doing everything possible – and that should include using dogs to recover wounded deer in all 50 states. There are too many success stories to ignore it any longer. [ Read Full Post ]

Nightforce was able to keep the costs down on its new SHV (Shooter, Hunter, Varminter) by utilizing simpler controls, employing a less complex manufacturing process, and by reducing the overbuilding that goes into their tactical scopes. The SHV will stand up to any kind of sane treatment, but you can’t break rocks with it, or chock truck tires, or beat recalcitrant mules, as you can with the higher-priced Nightforces.

Hunting season begins this month in many Western states, with applications due for limited-quota permits. These big-game lotteries distribute coveted bull, buck, and ram licenses, but also the antlerless tags that are the consolation prize for most of us without scads of preference points or luck on our side to draw the premium permits. Here are five of the most rarefied opportunities in the West for tags that are big-game hunters’ equivalent of Powerball jackpots, but also some great meat hunts that you’re almost certain to draw.

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.
