    President Trump’s proposed border wall has been hotly debated as a political, economic and human rights issue ever since it emerged as a signature part of his campaign platform. But it’s also a major conservation issue, wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin argues. “The impact will be huge. It will be an environmental catastrophe,” Corwin told CBS News on Wednesday. Corwin, a nature conservationist known for his television work on the cable network Animal Planet, is concerned that the wall will dramatically disrupt what has been “nature’s corridor through North and South America” for millions of years now. At least 89 endangered...

    The phrase “get ’em while they’re hot” certainly applied when it came to Arby’s new seasonal offering. Last week, Arby’s announced they would be unveiling a venison sandwich, made from 100 percent deer meat. In addition to the venison steak, the sandwich also came with onions and a berry sauce on a toasted roll. The sandwich was to be available from Friday through Sunday, but as of about noon Friday, a spokesperson reported that all five Minnesota locations carrying the sandwich had sold out. In some case, it sold out in less than a half-hour. The sandwiches were briefly available...

    An Oklahoma girl may make it into the record books after killing a 16-point buck last weekend. Micalah Millard, who is just 14-years-old, was hunting with her father when she spotted a large buck through cameras set up on her grandfather’s ranch. Hours later, the buck reappeared. “I was surprised that I made the shot and hit him,” Micalah told KJRH. “She has killed deer before, but nothing like this. Nobody I know has ever killed anything like this,” said Malachi, Micalah’s father. Now, she must wait 60 days to wait for an official score, but the buck will likely...

  • The Buck Who Carried His Rival’s Head (Deer Survives 2 Months w/ Severed Head Locked in Its Antlers)

    The Buck Who Carried His Rival’s Head While it may look like a grisly trophy, the story behind the picture of the antler-locked bucks above is one of survival and endurance. I recently spoke with Luke Laha, a wildlife management instructor in Kansas, about how he and his students rescued an antler-locked deer that had been carrying around the head of his rival. So how did this deer come to be wearing such bizarre headgear? Laha said that there was once a body attached to that head, before the coyotes came. Laha works as an instructor at Pratt Community College’s...

    Anyone catch this show last night? It is definetely for a small market of viewers. Like me. I loved it. The content interests me. Of course, this coming from someone who's favorite TV program is Duck Dynasty. This show will never take off like Duck Dynasty, but I thought it was fairly entertaining. One reason I like it is because, as I was watching, I was thinking that the left is going to have a fit about these hunters are 'killing defensless deer". I say they are not killing defensless deer... they are killing delicious meat. Besides, the deer have...

    Hunters and homeless people in Louisiana are righteously outraged after state health officials forced a homeless shelter to throw out nearly a ton of perfectly good venison. The meat that had been donated to the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission could have fed more than 3,000 people. Instead, it was tossed in trash bins by officials from the Department of Health and Hospitals who say that state law prohibits the serving of venison in homeless shelters. Not only did the officials toss the meat, they doused it with Clorox to make sure it couldn’t be eaten by animals or, presumably, people. “Deer...

    About a half-million Minnesotans will hit the woods and fields for this weekend's start of the firearms deer hunting season, the biggest annual outdoors event outside the walleye fishing opener. It's more than a hunt. It's a prelude to a feast. Roughly 8 million pounds of meat will be harvested from the state's robust deer herd this season, the vast majority of it Saturday and Sunday. It's lean, high-protein and free-range.

    A 13-year-old British girl shocked her mother by asking Santa Claus for a bunch of presents — including "the real-life Justin Bieber" — and threatening to kill Santa if he refuses to deliver. Metro UK reported this week that the girl, Mekeeda Austin, who lives in Brickhill in Bedford, also threatened to "hunt down" Santa's reindeer so she could "cook them and serve their meat to homeless people on Xmas day." The girl said she was mostly joking.

    As I sit here behind this laptop, I now realize that this definitely wasn’t the brightest idea I have ever had. I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that, since they congregate at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me when we are there (a bold one will sometimes come right up and sniff at the bags of feed while I...

    Associated Press Thousands of pounds of venison donated to food pantries this year has become a contentious gift in three states. Officials in North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa warn that the meat could be contaminated by lead from bullets. Hunting groups are calling it an overreaction. "It's alarmist and not supported by any science," said Lawrence Keane, a vice president and lawyer for the Newton, Conn.-based National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry. "High quality protein is now taken out of the mouths of needy, hungry people." North Dakota health officials on Wednesday told...

    The dead deer's innards are exposed by a perfect neck-to-belly incision. It's time for Dave Wolfgang's students to dig in. "Who would like to take the hearts and lungs out?" the Pennsylvania State University veterinary professor asks four volunteers wearing aprons and heavy-duty rubber gloves. Venison 101 class isn't for the faint of heart. For $99, a deer hunter, a cook, or the just plain curious can spend a day at Penn State's meat laboratory to learn the ins and outs of what to do with a prized carcass

By Winston Ross Sept. 19, 2007 - Had he been a hunter, and had the mottled white doe that tumbled down a hill into his rural Oregon driveway six years ago been an adult, Jim Filipetti could have ponied up $19, applied for a deer tag and gunned the animal down. He could have butchered the deer the state now knows as "Snowball," mounted...
