Senate passes massive conservation bill for positive gain - posted 2 months ago

Would love to see all National Parks and National Monuments open up for hunting rather than spending tax money on hired killers and/or wolves to manage game animals on our public lands.

Oregon hunter used rifle, not bow, for record buck - posted 3 months ago

The title of the article is wrong. This guy is not a hunter. He obviously found this great buck during archery season and decided to cheat and use a rifle. That action then prevented anyone else hunting legally to have a chance at this animal. Premeditated Poaching.

The title should be "Poacher in Oregon Used Rifle not Bow for Trophy Buck"

Wyoming men charged with antler poaching - posted 3 months ago

I am glad to see State Game and Fish Departments finally taking action on early bird shed hunting. These guys are pushing the animals at the time of the year when they are at their weakest to get the antlers the earliest.

After seeing guys chase bucks with snow machines in deep snow in Colorado several years ago just to get them to drop their antlers and, in some cases pushing an exhausted buck till he just stopped and then knocking the antlers off it is sickening. Thankfully, Colorado has finally imposed a closed season for shed hunting and I hope that they hit guys like that with everything they can!

I thought the fines were too light! $1,550 is nothing! They should have been hit with pretty hefty fines for trespassing and for illegally picking up shed antlers in the off season. It does not sound like their vehicles were confiscated but they should have been. Heck, the fines should have been more along the lines of $20,000 each and confiscation of the snow machines and pickup truck.

How many dead elk and deer do these guys leave behind due to pushing them when they are at their weakest? Why should that be any different than someone shooting those animals and leaving them to rot?

Wild sheep wild places - posted 1 year ago

Drawing a bighorn sheep after only 13 years was good luck! Getting a bomber ram was even better! Great job!
