Taxidermist, publisher, and marketing genius, Rowland Ward turned mounted animals into a fashionable sensation during the Victorian Age.
by Diana Rupp
Hunters today know the name Rowland Ward mostly because of the record book that bears his name. But Rowland Ward was a fascinating character in his own right. An expert taxidermist (though he preferred to refer to himself as a “naturalist”), Ward was also a savvy businessman and marketing genius who became the most well-known taxidermist of his day, with a shop in London called “The Jungle” that became an almost mandatory stop for any hunter traveling through London on the way to Africa or India. His publishing empire, which he started in part to help market his taxidermy business, has lasted for more than a century.
A study launching this year will measure the actual amounts of venison and other wild protein harvested annually in North America. Researchers will assess the nutritional, cultural, and economic values of this harvest, as well as the ecological costs of replacing this food through standard agriculture and domestic livestock production.
Dallas Safari Club is the founding sponsor of the project, pledging $200,000 over the next two years. DSC officials hope other sponsors will come aboard to help advance the study.
"This research isn't just fascinating. It's critical to help modern society understand the full scale of hunting on this continent, and of the natural, organic, sustainable food that today's hunters provide for their families," said Ben Carter, DSC executive director. "Additionally, this research will help all of us understand the hidden costs when hunting traditions are eroded—or attacked."READ MORE
It's a myth that only younger game animals are good eating. Trophy-size game can also be excellent table fare.
By John Barsness
Some hunters believe trophy-size big-game animals make lousy eating, so they need to be boiled, ground into sausage, or donated. While younger animals certainly provide more consistently edible meat than older ones, my wife, Eileen Clarke, and I have enjoyably eaten plenty of trophy animals and fed them to friends who liked them a lot, too. Eileen writes game cookbooks, and her recipes help. This one is from her cookbook, Slice of the Wild, which costs $25 and is available with Eileen's other wild game cookbooks at www.riflesandrecipes.com, or by calling 406/521-0273.READ MORE

A crucial program that funds public access and wildlife habitat is in danger.
By Diana Rupp
North America's fall hunting seasons are almost here. It's the best time of year--full of scouting, practicing, and anticipation. If you're lucky, you might have access to some private land to hunt. But if you're like the majority of American hunters, rich and poor, East and West, you'll be taking advantage of one of this country's greatest legacies--millions of acres of public land, open to anyone who wants to hunt it. The availability and abundance of public land in this country is one of the things that sustains our uniquely North American wildlife conservation tradition.READ MORE
