    American Hunter ^ | September 30, 2015 | Jon Draper
    On Sept. 23, Matthew Nellessen of Friendship, Wisc., an avid deer hunter and former U.S. Army sergeant who served with the 961st Engineers in Afghanistan in 2006 and 2007, was scouting a potential hunting area in the Colburn Wildlife Management Area of Adams County when he locked eyes with a wolf only 30 yards away. Acting on instinct he gained from military service, Nellessen immediately pulled his sidearm, a Walther PK .380, and chambered a round. That’s when things went from bad to worse. As he racked the slide, Nellessen noticed two more wolves approaching from the left. “It all...

    ERIE, Pa. -- Deer that have been invading the thoroughbred horse racing track at Presque Isle Downs & Casino in Summit Township will be shot.

    A bill to repeal the state law restricting the use of corn or other bait as an aid in deer hunting passed a Senate committee today with an endorsement from country music legend Hank Williams Jr. Williams, an avid hunter known for singing about the outdoors and rural life, said there are times when it's good to have the option to use bait, such as when a hunter takes along a child, a disabled person or an injured veteran and wants to make sure they have a chance to kill a deer. Williams said many other states have no restrictions...

    Seeing fewer quail on your hunting lease? Maybe it's time you stop pointing the finger at coyotes, raccoons and fire ants and place the blame on your murderous herd of white-tailed deer. Believe it or not, researchers have discovered deer will raid the happy homes of ground-nesting birds and enjoy a nice breakfast of eggs or fledglings. Pam Pietz, a wildlife biologist at the U.S. Geological Survey's Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center in North Dakota, set up miniature video cameras that ran 24 hours a day to document the fate of grassland songbird nests, according to the USGS. She was...

    MACKINAC COUNTY, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says recent video of a cougar is the 28th confirmed sighting in the Upper Peninsula since 2008. The DNR posted a 60 second video Feb. 19 of the cat feeding on a deer carcass in Mackinac County. Two hunters from Remus used a trail camera to capture video of the male cougar repeatedly returning to the deer kill site to eat. The DNR says cougars were originally native to Michigan, but were driven out of the state around 1900. The last known cougar taken in the wild occurred in...

    Washington Post ^ | 12/24/14 | Steve Hendrix
    **SNIP** While its long-term effectiveness is still unclear, surgical sterilization seems to be gaining popularity in this white-tailed-rich region. The procedure, less invasive than dog and cat spaying, is an alternative to controlled hunting, which provokes opposition from animal-welfare activists, and to immunization, which requires yearly doses of a dart-delivered contraceptive vaccine. DeNicola has already spayed a herd in a Baltimore suburb, where a population boom has stabilized. And in Fairfax City, he conducted Virginia’s first ovary-removal program when his team operated on 18 female deer in the police garage. The procedures, which cost about $1,000 per doe, are being...

    Hunters from all parts of the country come to Kansas hoping to shoot a buck with a trophy-class set of antlers. Well, for Chuck Rorie, half of the dream came true Wednesday afternoon when he shot what he thought was a nice buck. Instead, the set of eight-point antlers were attached to a doe. “I didn’t think much about it; it just looked like a nice buck when I was watching it and shot it,” said Rorie, of Monroe, N.C. “But when I was skinning it I realized something didn’t look right. It didn’t have the right private parts. “I...

    It’s not unheard of for two bucks to be seen with their antlers locked together after a battle. Tales have even been told of hunters rescuing a live deer locked with a dead one. But what is a little more odd is when two deer get locked not by their antlers, but by something else. In the case of the video below, that “something else” was a nylon rope, and the two deer needed the help of a Texas game warden.

    Two bucks each tangled by the antlers in the same nylon rope were pulling against each other until a game warden came up with a clever solution. A Texas game warden came to the rescue of two bucks that were trapped in an unusual way—both deer had their antlers tangled in the same nylon rope and were pulling against each other around the pole of a clothesline in the backyard of someone’s house. The unidentified Texas game warden in Comal County used a clever strategy to free the animals, which were thrashing about with their survival in jeopardy: The Texas...

    The start of bow-hunting season has prompted an outrage in the Suffolk County community of Kings Park. As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported exclusively Thursday, residents are upset that bow-hunting is being allowed closer to homes inside a recently-renovated nature trail. Bow-hunter Scott Trafas was readying his bow Thursday, and deer along the Kings Park trail would be well advised to run. It is mating season for the animals, and for Trafas, it’s time to hunt. “We need to control the deer population,” Trafas said. “I mean, people complain that deer run out, and they’re in the road, and they’re...

Since then, hundreds of officers, supported by armored vehicles and helicopters, have combed the forests of northeastern Pennsylvania looking for...

    Ted SieferJune 16, 2014 Deer ticks, also known as blacklegged ticks, are the prime carriers of Lyme disease, which is particularly common in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Large numbers of ticks, the parasites that carry Lyme disease, are expected to emerge in New England in the coming weeks, experts said on Friday. Abundant snow over the winter and a wet spring have created ideal conditions for ticks to come out in the warm weather and try to latch onto hosts, they said. "The next three to four weeks is the peak season of risk," said Sam Telford, an infectious disease...

    Will a warming world eventually kill off roe deer in France? That question is being raised in light of new research indicating that the animals are having a hard time adapting to climate change. In a study published Tuesday in the open-access journal PLOS Biology, researchers tracked the births and subsequent survival of roe deer fawns in France's Champagne region. They noted that spring vegetation on which the adult deer depend for food was starting to flourish two weeks earlier that it did nearly three decades ago, due to gradual warming. But although spring was arriving earlier, the animals' birth...

    The booming deer population in the northern United States is bad for the animal's beloved hemlocks, a new study finds. During Michigan winters, white-tailed deer converge on stands of young hemlocks for protection from winter chill and predators. The same deer return every year to their favorite clumps of the bushy evergreens, called deeryards. The high concentration of deer in a small space saturates the soils with nitrogen from pee, according to a study published online in the journal Ecology. While deer pee can be a valuable source of nitrogen, a rare and necessary nutrient for plants, some deeryards are...

She stared glumly out the window at the Preston, Idaho, cornfields. A seasoned hunter, Alexis let her eyes lazily scan the landscape for wildlife. Still, she was startled when a deer came into view about 200 yards in front of them, just a few feet off the road. Mule deer never appeared in plain sight ten days before hunting season....
