Sometimes it's the hardships and challenges we experience on hunting trips that make our adventures truly memorable.
By James C. Reed
If you’re going to hunt in some of the world’s most remote places, you’d better be prepared for some unexpected adventures. Being a hunter with a restless spirit, I can’t seem to get enough of the both the joys and hardships that come with hunting the world’s far-flung regions. Here are a few of the most memorable tests of my “mental fortitude” I’ve experienced to date.
A Party in Pakistan
Now I don’t speak a word of the Pakistani language, but when I was stranded by weather in a high-mountain village not far from the Afghanistan border, with an official trying to extort $1,000 from me with a great deal of yelling and pointing, I understood the word “Taliban” very well.
Argentina dove hunting is the ultimate wingshooting experience.
By John M. Taylor
As the rising sun balanced on the horizon, they came in waves . . . in torrents; doves hurtling toward the millions of sunflowers looking for breakfast. Thumbing shells into the already hot Beretta semiauto, I soon gave up loading the magazine and shoved in only single rounds as frantically as one of Custer’s cavalrymen.READ MORE
A proposed bill may help stop frivolous lawsuits by animal-rights groups.
Legislation introduced in Congress could axe what has amounted to federal subsidies for environmental extremist and animal-rights groups making big business out of suing the U.S. government.
The legislation, a House Resolution and companion version in the Senate titled Government Litigation Savings Act, would amend the existing Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA). Though well intended, abuses of EAJA have escalated into a serious conservation issue with long-term consequences. Costs of defending unnecessary lawsuits against federal agencies such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (over the wolf issue, for example) are an increasing drain on conservation funding and agency personnel today.
The Government Litigation Savings Act was prompted by a coalition (member list below) of wildlife, agriculture, energy, mining, and other resource-based groups led by Boone and Crockett Club.READ MORE
Hunting makes critical contributions to the future of wildlife populations around the world.
"Sustainable hunting will continue to be a major conservation tool in the 21st century. It conserves wildlife populations and biodiversity in general, whereas hunting bans can speed up extinction," said the President of the CIC Tropical Game Commission, Dr. Rolf D. Baldus, at a conference during the international IWA-Outdoors Classic trade fair in Nürnberg, Germany. The conference on "Hunting and Sportshooting in the 21st Century" was organized by the "World Forum on the Future of Sport Shooting Activities" (WFSA). The WFSA represents over one hundred million sport shooters from all around the world.
