    >It appears the federal agency entrusted with protecting fish and wildlife in the U.S. has a new mission - to promote and further wind and solar energy projects on public lands, despite the cost to fish and wildlife programs.< >The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is one of several agencies under the umbrella of the Department of the Interior (DOI). In recent years DOI has evolved into a vehicle to further the Obama administration’s push for “clean” energy, using the more than 500 million acres the Department manages to further this goal.< >Many Outdoor Wire readers remember the FWS’s...

    WASHINGTON - One day in the next few weeks, flocks of wild birds from Asia will wing northeast across the Bering Strait to Alaska, where they'll join other birds heading north from their winter homes in the United States and points south. As they embark on their annual spring migration, Asian ducks and geese may be carrying some unwelcome baggage - the highly virulent H5N1 avian-flu virus - that they could pass on to their American neighbors. The deadly bug has killed millions of birds and almost 100 humans since it appeared in China about 10 years ago. It's been...

    CARR CANYON - Public opinion polls show illegal immigration as the chief concern for most Arizonans, but the history of the land now known as Arizona is the history of migration, according to Dr. John Ware, executive director of the Amerind Foundation. "We're a culture of migrants here," Ware told an audience of about 20 people Sunday afternoon at the Carr House Information Center. Not only are we all migrants, we're all of African stock, Ware added. What he described as "genetic markers" prove that modern humans evolved in Africa about 100,000 years ago and gradually spread around the planet,...

    Only my third thread post,so be gentle. Did John Kerry break state and federal law during his goose hunt?All of the photos I've seen DO NOT show a "tag" attached to any goose.Ohio state,and therefor federal,law requires that all migratory game birds that you have killed,but are not in posession of,be tagged with pertinent information.John Kerry said he was "Too lazy" to carry his own bird.If that goose did not have a tag,then I submit that Kerry is violation of state and federal law. Source: Tagging:No person shall give,put,or leave any migratory game birds at any place OR IN THE...
