The grainy, shaky video below is not for the faint of heart. You can't glean much from the footage, but the screams on the audio track tell the story.
Four pig hunters were hunting with their dogs outside of Darwin, Australia. The dogs caught a pig in a river and one of the hunters waded in to pull them out. [ Read Full Post ]
You love ’em, you hate ’em, and it’s hard to venture the woods without them. Best buds are hard to find. Even if they’re always an hour late or constantly short on gas money, you’ll still lie down in traffic for them any day.
A few years back, after shooting a bunch of prairie dogs, a close buddy of mine came up with the idea to grill and serve a couple of medium-rare pasture-puppy tenderloins to an unsuspecting latecomer friend.
Grilled chislic—which is generally cubed, deep-fried beef—is a popular treat around these parts. It possesses uncanny similarities to prairie dog tenderloin. All we needed was a little special seasoning and a few minutes on the grill, and these tender, moist chunks of pure rotten succulence were impaled with toothpicks and ready to eat. [ Read Full Post ]
The photo above shows one of a handful of billboards that the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has purchased in response to an organization called Project Wolf.
Project Wolf, an anti-wolf hunting group, is putting up billboards "disseminating misleading and inaccurate information relative to the Yellowstone wolf population," according to the good folks at RMEF. The RMEF billboards will be posted in Red Lodge, Cody, Bozeman, and near West Yellowstone. [ Read Full Post ]
Banff motorcyclist Tim Barlett played a mile-long game of cat-and-mouse with a wolf on Highway 93 in Kootenay National Park earlier this month. His story would have likely turned into nothing more than local lore if not for the handful of cell-phone photos he was able to snap during the encounter.
From Bartlett's interview with the National Post:
"[I] was doing about 90km/h in the right hand lane going north and [the wolf] came from the left hand side of the road. It darted out, crossed the other lane and I had to swerve and accelerate to get around it. I went forward about 100 meters and when I turned around it was just standing in the middle of the lane watching me," Bartlett said. [ Read Full Post ]
Spring bear season in interior Alaska is part of my yearly routine. It means long nights of no darkness, the sound of a two-stroke outboard, and a cool breeze coming off the river. But this spring was to be different. In the area we have hunted black bears for years, it would finally be legal to hunt grizzly bears over bait. [ Read Full Post ]
Any hunter who's spent time in wolf country can attest to the predators’ influence. We see wolf tracks, find old kills, and often times we spot fewer game animals. But exactly how wolves affect big-game populations is still greatly unknown. Yeah, wolves eat elk. But, do they kill mostly adults or calves? Do they eat enough elk to wipe out a whole herd? Do they pressure elk into hiding in the timber or force them off their feeding patterns? Are wolves even one of the main factors in elk population dynamics?
New research from the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at the University of Wyoming is starting to shed light on some of these questions. After three years of studying the Clark's Fork elk herd (about 5,000 animals) in northwest Wyoming, lead researcher Arthur Middleton found that wolves might not be as detrimental to elk populations as many outdoorsmen think.
