    RAHWAY — A longtime Democratic operative from Union County has responded to the Wednesday shooting of a congressman by calling for a “hunt” of Republicans. James Devine posted several messages on Facebook and Twitter following the Alexandra, Virginia, shooting of U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise and several others by a gunman with a history of violence and of making online rantings against Republican officials and their policies.

    Mason and Joe after a successful day's hunt. As many have learned, teaching a skill can be more enjoyable than exercising it. Last year I took Joe hunting, and he shot his first doves.  In between seasons, I taught him to drive.  This year I asked if he wanted to go hunting again, and he did.  He asked if he could bring a friend, Mason.  Mason had already been dove hunting, he said.  After a few questions, I agreed.  Mason is 16.  The boys were up and ready at 05:30, as I had asked.  It was gratifying to see...

    The city wants to spend big so there's no bang for Staten Island's bucks. Comptroller Scott Stringer is allowing the city to fast-track the contracting process on a $2 million plan to perform vasectomies on the borough's male deer. [Snip] An unrestrained and expanding deer herd can harm parks and private property, spread tick-borne illness and wander into roads more often, increasing the risk for deadly vehicle collisions. [Snip] If the city's plan works ... hundreds of bucks would be tranquilized, captured, given vasectomies and released back onto Staten Island parkland over the course of the three-year study. Mayor Bill...

  • St. Jude asks Decatur County to change name of annual benefit hunt

    St. Jude cited racial concerns in asking Decatur County to change the name of its annual hunt. For the past 40 years, Decatur County has hosted a hunting event to raise money for the patients at St. Jude Children’s Hospital. So far, it has raised $4.5 million. Decatur County Mayor Mike Creasy said the hospital is now threatening to turn down the donations unless the county changes the name of the event. For decades, the event has been known as the Decatur County World’s Largest Coon Hunt. The Coon Hunt Board told Channel 4 that St. Jude has threatened to...

    While the death of a protected lion in Zimbabwe has caused outrage in the United States — much of it centered on the Minnesota dentist who killed the animal — most in Zimbabwe expressed a degree of bafflement over the concern. The discovery that Cecil, the star of Zimbabwe national park had been lured out and killed by American bow hunter Walter James Palmer has resulted in online anger and protests at his dental clinic. Outside Zimbabwe's environmental and activist circles, however, the reaction been muted. "It's so cruel, but I don't understand the whole fuss, there are so many...

    Windhoek (AFP) - A US hunter who paid $350,000 to kill a black rhinoceros in Namibia successfully shot the animal on Monday, saying that his actions would help protect the critically-endangered species. Corey Knowlton, from Texas, downed the rhino with a high-powered rifle after a three-day hunt through the bush with government officials on hand to ensure he killed the correct animal. Knowlton, 36, won the right to shoot the rhino at an auction in Dallas in early 2014 -- attracting fierce criticism from many conservationists and even some death threats. He took a CNN camera crew on the hunt...

    Thanks to hunting season, Christmas comes early for megastores that cater to outdoor enthusiasts. Retailers like Cabela’s (CAB) and Bass Pro Shops are known to draw customers who travel many miles to both gear up for hunting season and browse in-store attractions. “Our stores across the U.S. and Canada are what many of our customers love about Bass Pro Shops,” Tammy Sapp, the Springfield, Mo.-based company’s director of communications said. Bass Pro Shops stocks its stores with log and rock work, large indoor aquariums and museum quality fish and wildlife mounts that “pay tribute to a region’s outdoor heritage,” she...

    CBS News ^ | 10-2-14 | Dave Carlin
    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...

    Animal attacks may not be recorded as defensive gun uses in most surveys, and they are never recorded as justifiable homicides.   But defensive uses of guns against animals occur frequently.   I was surprised to learn of the number of mountain lions that have been shot in defensive situations in Nebraska.   Here is the latest incident. A man in near Chadron, Nebraska shot a mountain lion that was menacing young children near his residence.  He grabbed a rifle and approached the animal, which refused to flee.   From a Nebraska Game and Parks press release: A man reported noticing the animal...

    The outrage about an American hunter, Melissa Bachman, who bragged on Twitter about bagging a splendid male lion, was terrifying to watch. Terrifying, but also deeply troubling on many levels. Emotive outrage and smug judgmentalism are no substitute for rational thought and pragmatic policy. Every year, game hunters travel to South Africa, pockets stuffed with dollars. Most of them are men, who quietly come and go, leaving behind them R6.2 billion in industry revenue, according to Environmental Affairs minister Edna Molewa. But when one hunter, an American television host named Melissa Bachman, dared to boast about her wonderful African hunting...

    So much for the left’s “consenting adults” rhetoric on sex. Forever the consummate conservationists, our self-described “progressive” friends at the ACLU, MSNBC and elsewhere have been ramping-up efforts to downsize from “consenting adults” to merely “consenting” – a far less cumbersome qualifier in the noble struggle for unrestrained sexual license. Tolerating “intergenerational romance” for “minor-attracted” adults is all the rage these days.

    Saudi police are searching for an Indonesian housemaid accused by her employer of casting a magic spell on all his family, causing fainting and epileptic fits to them.
