A stalk on a mule deer buck starts with a brisk climb, followed by long bouts of complete stillness until the deer is spotted. Then it’s time to step up and close the distance.
Elevation is the stalking hunter’s best advantage over mule deer. A perch on a rise provides a crow’s nest view from which to scan the country with a binocular to look for a buck. Look to the east first thing in the morning, before the view is obscured by the rising sun. Then turn and glass to the west. With the sun at your back, deer stand out like lighted candles.

The 10 nations of British Columbia’s north and central coasts have declared a moratorium on bear hunting on their lands — despite the fact that it is unclear whether they can legally enforce such an act.
"That's an issue that we're facing — how we're going to be able to deal with that without the province supporting us," said Coalition Spokesman William Housty of the Heiltsuk First Nation in an interview with CBCNews. "That's really a problem. We can't walk up to these hunters and say, `You can't hunt here.' We can't write a ticket."
Then why declare a moratorium in the first place?
The answer, Housty said, lies with hunters and poachers who leave bear carcasses to rot despite signs asking them not to. First of all, Housty needs to understand the difference between a hunter and a poacher. The former not being the one that leaves an animal to rot after shooting it. Secondly, does Housty really expect poachers to follow posted instructions? Or adhere to another law that makes what they’re already doing illegally even more illegal?
Another concern has to do with the nation’s ecotourism, which Housty feels bear hunting hurts. (No, but bear poaching does.) B.C. Minister... [ Read Full Post ]
“If this was a vegetarian food festival, everyone would have left by now,” said the complete stranger in between bites of spit-roasted short ribs, as the rain poured down and drenched his hair and t-shirt. I looked at him from under my hood, took another bite of grilled rib steak covered in bone marrow butter, nodded, grunted, and grinned.
Officially, we were under a tornado watch, but not a single one of the hundreds of gathered meat lovers considered heading for the exit. Not that there was anywhere to go. We were on an island—specifically Randall’s Island—in the East River between the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Queens, at an event dubbed Meatopia. [ Read Full Post ]
As of this posting nine caribou hunters are being rescued from ice-locked Coats Island by the Canadian Coast Guard via the Icebreaker Pierre Radisson.
The nine caribou hunters left Coral Harbour in two 24-foot aluminum boats sometime last month. They were waiting out a week’s worth of bad weather when the island they were hunting became surrounded by ice. The group apparently tried to get through the ice Saturday but were unsuccessful. It was during this attempt that their satellite phone went dead. Fortunately the group was spotted by a Hercules aircraft on Sunday. Captain Jean Houde, with CFB Trenton, said the plane managed to drop a radio to communicate with them shortly after. [ Read Full Post ]
Locals call it the “Lunch Counter,” but you won’t find that name on any map. It’s a soaring plateau of wind-blasted limestone and withered wildflowers that, at 10,000 feet above sea level, presides over a confusion of lesser ridges that march west into Idaho’s Snake River Plain.
A rumor of elk—told to a friend who told a friend who told me—has brought me to this southwest corner of Wyoming. The topography that appealed to me on maps is confirmed by the view from the trailhead. If I can grind my way to the top of the Lunch Counter, I should find a wide, grassy, miles-long mesa, a table whose top stays well above the tree line but whose shoulders drop into dozens of timbered drainages.

It is the year of wolf. Or so it seems.
Earlier this year, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota saw their wolf populations delisted.
That those states would have a wolf hunting and/or trapping season has never been in question for many residents. It’s simply been a matter of when. Idaho and Montana adopted wolf seasons soon after the animals were delisted there. Minnesota added a wolf hunt just weeks after its population was delisted in January.
Wyoming, however, is at the head of the delisted-to-hunted train. Wyoming’s wolf population is expected to be delisted on Sept. 30. Wyoming’s new wolf season would open the next day. [ Read Full Post ]
