2011 was a great year on OutdoorLife.com. We did some big news pieces, like wolves being taken off the endangered species list. We covered some strange wildlife features, like a grizzly chasing down a scalded bison in Yellowstone. And, we posted a ton of crazy photos, like the worst taxidermy pictures of all time. With 2011 in the books, now is the perfect time to look back at the best stories and features of the year.
