Okay, I'll admit it. I've been loosely following this story every since the controversy broke over whether or not the Boone & Crockett Club was going to name the Johnny King Buck the New World Record. Honestly, I could care less because I lost faith in the B&C Club many years ago. I think they've became just another good ole boys club and haven't represented the spirit under which the Club was founded for a long time now.
Just a quick note out to all my hunting/gun toting buddies this morning. I received an email from GunsAmerica this morning about a kids movie out on the market right now. The movie is called "The Iron Giant". Here's the email I received giving me a heads up on the movie.
If you've been putting off applying for a Texas Public Land Controlled Hunt Permit, you time is running out. Actually, if you planned on archery hunting, the deadline was August 4th for the Texas Public Land Archery Permits.
Gun hunters for Texas Whitetails, Mule Deer and Exotics have until either September 4th or the 18th, depending on which one you apply for.
If you're an Oregon Deer Hunter, or you hunt Pronghorn, Bighorn Sheep, Elk or Rocky Mountain goats, the deadline to purchase the application is May 15th.
There are several ways to apply for a controlled hunt in Oregon. You can go to a license agent, by fax or apply by mail.
If you're applying by fax or mail, you'll need this form.
For those of you who put in for the Oklahoma Controlled Hunts, you'd better get over to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife's website and enter before the May 15th deadline.
Starting this year, applications will only be taken online. So don't be looking for the booklets at Wal-Mart or your favorite Sporting Goods stores because they won't be there.
I ran across this story in the Houston Chronical about an outfitter in Texas who runs hunts for young boys.
The outfitter, Mike Arnold is a past president of the Texas Trophy Hunters Association.
His outfit, called the Cross Trail Outfitters, has a simple Mission Statement.
"Building men, preserving our heritage and sharing our faith"
I ran across this story today while browsing a homesteading forum. Seems this lady in Asheville NC, who also is the Wildlife Correspondent for Peta (go figure), sent this letter in to the editor of the Asheville Citizen-Times.
Here is the link.
Wow, this just blew me away when I saw it on Remington's website.
I hope that Remington won't change too many things with the Marlin line. Remington and Marlin are two of my favorite gunmakers and they're both still making them here in the U.S.A. (yeah, I know about the Spartan line of O/U's, rotating block muzzleloaders made in Spain and the Serbian made 798's, but the main line is still made here) I hope they continue to do so.
Four Minnesota Deer Hunters were shot on the opening Weekend of Minnesota's Deer Season. One was killed.
Here's a run down of the shootings from Channel 9 in the Twin Cities.
There has been a rash of poaching incidents in Southeastern Idaho recently and the Idaho Game & Fish is asking help from residents to solve the cases.
These cases aren't cases where someone shoots an animal illegally and puts it in their freezer. These animals were poached and left to go to waste. Poaching really gets my Goat, but shooting animals and leaving them lay to waste really gets me hot under the collar. These a$$holes need caught and sent to prison where they belong.keep looking »
