You've heard why bank robbers target banks: It's where the money is.
The same reasoning should turn your coyote-hunting efforts to public waterfowl areas, state-managed wildlife areas where pen-raised pheasants are released, and anywhere else wingshooters are hammering birds. Coyotes go where the easy food is.

From the country that gave us Nintendo, Pokémon, sushi, and wasabi Kit Kat’s, comes a TV show where a woman ties a piece of meat around her waist and runs from a hungry and surprisingly fast Komodo dragon. [ Read Full Post ]
This video was posted to LiveLeak two days ago and illustrates just how creative a predator the wolf can be. According to the post: "Remote cameras planted by a British Columbia environmental group have captured a wolf capturing one of the spawning salmon in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest.

Wisconsin wolf hunters are doing so well this year that the season might end early leaving those wanting to hunt with hounds out in the cold.
Two weeks after the season opened on October 15, hunters and trappers have filled 71 percent of the quota allotted by the Department of Natural Resources, according to Madison.com. This equates 178 wolves and is a much higher kill rate than last year. In 2012, hunters took 41 wolves or 35 percent of the state’s quota of 116 animals. This year’s quota is 251. Hunters have been so successful this year that the state has already closed three of its six wolf hunting/trapping zones. Last year the DNR didn’t have to close any zones until November 16.

Today’s drugs are, literally, life savers. But nature’s resiliency is amazing, and given time, species will adapt technologically, environmentally or genetically to survive. It’s a double-edged sword – we save lives (both animal and human) but also make what we’re suppressing stronger. We see it with MRSA infections in humans, and now we’re seeing it with heartworms in canines.

It seems a small percentage of heartworms have adapted – by genetically mutating and evolving – and are able to withstand traditional heartworm preventatives that use ingredients such as Ivermectin, Spinosad and Lufenuron.
The mutation in question isn’t really new, but it has finally been agreed upon by scientists. [ Read Full Post ]
Looking for a lighter weight survival knife? The 4.6-ounce UST SaberCut Para Knife 4.0 gave me a good first impression on appearance and listed features. But how would it perform?
Out of the package, both the straight edge and serrated edge were plenty sharp. The straight section slices well, and ends at a very acute point. It has a grooved thumb guard and a finger choil for grip in slippery situations. The full-tang fixed blade is made from 4mm-thick titanium-coated 440C steel, and features a paracord-wrapped handle with a workable (but not great) grip. [ Read Full Post ]

Hit the ground and start walking. That’s the strategy most hunters employ when they enter the woods in search of ruffed grouse. “Cover enough country and sooner or later I’ll find them,” they say to themselves. Add a few weeks of hunting pressure and waning food to the equation, and it all gets a bit tougher.
But you can save steps, increase your flush count, get more shots, and bag more birds if you use some common sense and follow the program below. Ruffed grouse utilize different parts of their habitat at different times of day. Here’s where to hunt and when. [ Read Full Post ]
