Often shocking, sometimes funny, but always true animal attack stories.
The folks at Whitetail Properties are planning the "The World's Largest Shed Hunt" on March 1, and to get participants motivated and educated, they posted this video on how to find more sheds. The basics of shed hunting are pretty obvious of course: look for sheds where deer spend most of their time during the late-winter months.
But this video divulges some insider info: bring binos for glassing distant habitat, check honey holes that get a lot of sun light, and focus on field edges. [ Read Full Post ]
Sitka has introduced two new pants for their waterfowl line. The Boreal Bib Pant (pictured) completes the company’s warmest waterfowl system. Working with the Boreal jacket, as well as Sitka’s other layers of high-tech clothing, the bib pants feature Gore-Tex and welded, watertight zippers to lock out the ever-present elements associated with waterfowling (you know, namely frigid water).

A man-eating tiger in India is believed to have killed its tenth victim Sunday evening. The female cat’s latest victim was a 50-year-old man who was collecting firewood at the edge of Kalgarh village at the time of the attack. The apex predator was eating the man’s abdomen and leg when villagers were able to scare it away with shovels and metal rods. [ Read Full Post ]
We don't know much about this video except that it features one extremely lucky deer. Keep an eye on the deer that stays put when the air horn blows. Then, after the explosion, you'll see it scamper off in the top right corner of the screen. The takeaway? Never underestimate the reflexes of a deer.

Most readers of outdoor writing know a good deal about Ernest Hemingway. But for those of us who want to find out the details — like for example what Mary Hemingway's favorite hamburger recipe was — there's good news coming from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.
More than 2,500 documents collected from Hemingway's farm outside of Havana have been newly digitized and made available at the museum, according to a story yesterday by The New York Times.
What makes the collection all the more interesting is that Hemingway seemed to be a hoarder, saving everything from Christmas cards to tickets to bullfights to the Cuban gun permit pictured above. [ Read Full Post ]

Change comes slowly to northern Mozambique. Wally Johnson, hunting legend of the last century, worked the area and shot some very big tuskers there. He noted of the native Makonde people that "their women all had a two-inch nail sticking through their upper lips." Originally an ornamentation, it also had the happy result of making them unappealing to the Arab slavers that trolled through Makonde villages seeking to stock the sultan's harems.

As expected, the Senate endorsed the $1 trillion Farm Bill in a 68-32 vote on Feb. 4 less than a week after it was approved by the House of Representatives in 251-166 tally. President Barak Obama is to sign the 1,100-plus page omnibus package at Michigan State University today.
The bill -- formally adopted as the Agriculture Act of 2014 (H.R. 2642 and S. S.954) -- had been deliberated and debated for more than two years since the 673-page, $288 million Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008 expired in 2012. The 2008 bill had 15 titles, or "chapters," while the 2014 version has 12 titles, including Commodities (Title I), Conservation (Title II), Forestry (Title VII) and Miscellaneous (Title XII).
