Wolves Delisted

Today, 02:27 AM

More than 45 years after gray wolves were first listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the Trump Administration and its many conservation partners are announcing the successful recovery of the gray wolf and its delisting from the ESA. U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt was at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge to announce that state and tribal wildlife management agency professionals will resume responsibility for sustainable management and protection of delisted gray wolves in states with gray wolf populations, while the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) monitors the species for five years to ensure the continued success of the species.

Close, but...

20 October 2020 - 02:42 AM

Went out archery hunting in the afternoon shift yesterday for my first time out this season.  I don't have any trail cams out, so I knew I might be in for a surprise.

 

Action was non-stop right up to dark, when I had to scare the turnip tasters away.

 

This buck was chasing does all over the place and grunting all the way.  He came within 30 yards of my hideout but never halted for a second.  No good shot, so I just took videos.

 

Pic (frame grab)  shows him entering the field and chomping on some turnip greens. 

 

Here we go.

Auction

14 October 2020 - 03:03 AM

The Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA), of which I am a charter member, is hosting an auction that ends Thursday, October 15th.  A great chance to get some gear, including firearms, at below retail cost.

 

I just checked the status and many items are currently far below market value.

Ready for some Football?

13 October 2020 - 02:53 AM

Members of the Python Action Team set up to reduce the number of invasive pythons in south Florida under the Python Elimination Program recently captured an 18-foot, 9-inch Burmese python that apparently sets a new length record for snakes captured in the program.

Ryan Ausburn and Kevin Pavlidis caught the behemoth of a snake, which weighed a whopping 104 pounds.

The removal of the pythons is an effort to reduce predation on native wildlife, which has been dramatic since the snakes began multiplying in the Everglades some 20 years ago. The giant snakes have been found to prey on water birds, all sorts of small mammals–which have largely disappeared in vast swaths where the snakes are most abundant–and even on alligators and deer occasionally.

Ausburn and Pavlidis make a living selling products made of snake skin leather. Reportedly, the skin of this snake will go into making special footballs for the 2021 Super Bowl in Tampa.
