1. GA deer more predictable now?
State deer biologist Charlie Killmaster.:
> “Deer are more predictable now than most of the rest of the deer season. Plus now is the time to hunt the bucks you’ve had on camera all summer before seasonal home ranges shift to fall core areas. ”
2. AZ early deer season is almost OVER!
> If you are hunting the pine forests of one of the local units, purchasing an over-the-counter turkey tag for $25 would be a wise choice since both hunts are for the same 3-week season. This is especially true if you are sitting near water….
3. MI special gun hunt set to start.
> Liberty Hunt, a firearm deer hunt on private or public lands for youth and hunters with disabilities, is back statewide Sept 12-13.
4. ME deer permit drawing this Friday.
5. KY has 56K new acres open for hunting.
6. RI: Natl Wildlife Refuge will open to hunters.
Scaled back a but because of opposition from neighboring residents.
7. IA database connects hunters with people who want venison.
Can’t sell venison in IA apparently:
> Hunters can enter their information to the database, including their location. Recipients choose the condition they want the meat when they register, boned out, whole (field dressed), quartered, frozen, jerky, sausage, or any and in what amount.
8. VT publishes list of deer tracking dogs.
> …certified leashed tracking-dog owners who volunteer during the hunting seasons to help hunters locate deer or bear that have been shot during hunting season but not yet recovered.
9. New way to rent primo hunting gear.
> Rather than shelling out big bucks for a once a year, or maybe even a once in a lifetime hunt, Big Sky
will rent you a primo hunting package at about 15% of the cost of buying it. Or, if you want to try out pricey gear before investing in it….
10. Buck’s Labor Day sale ends TOMORROW.
11. How to start a hunting club.
The Hunting Club Bible — great idea. Assuming it includes possession of jerky, hot sauce ear plugs for sleeping and a chore list…lol! Get it at ChristianOutdoors.org.
12. MA: Savage looking to hire various folks.
13. MA: Smith & Wesson Q1 fiscal sales up 124.8%.
14. OH: Bison unlikely to be reintroduced.
No idea why this is even a thought?
> “…no ideal locations left for bison in OH. There is nothing big enough left.
> “Could you imagine hitting one of these with a car? It would happen.”
15. DC: Outrageous 2A bills now under consideration.
> A plain reading…of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s gun bill, now in both houses of Congress, will require current and future gun owners to pass psychology and character tests to continue owning the firearms they already legally possess. When asked, legal experts have been unable to describe how this would be legal. Biden has not commented.
> To obtain this license you would need to prove to unelected officials that you are of “sound mind and character,” you do not “potentially create a risk to public safety,” and you meet “any other requirements the State determines relevant.”
More 2A stuff:
MT governor is anti-gun??
16. Euro Peta goes after hunting video game.
> asking for the game to change direction by replacing guns with telephoto lenses and making the goal to shoot the best photo of a wild animal.
> “…it’s near psychopathic to get a thrill from gunning down other living beings, even in a virtual world…must stop glorifying violence to animals by transforming the players of Hunting Simulator 2 into wildlife saviors and admirers….”
Hard to believe those folks are human beings too…and don’t miss that “must” language and what it implies….
