I don’t think most sportsmen would agree with this. Would you? I for one would like to know what political factors go into determining the objectives for the elk plan.

Dar es Salaam (AFP) – Poachers slaughtering Africa’s elephants and rhinos with impunity are often shielded from police by powerful connections, but a group of conservationists has turned to the anonymity of tip-offs to try to stem the killing. The founders of WildLeaks — a sort of WikiLeaks for the environment — say it is […]
Once again, our 2014 ended with another successful British Columbia bear hunting season. The spring season ended with happy hunters and some incredible bears. The success always amazes me.

I recently sent in my Kenetrek Moutain Extreme boots to be resoled and repaired after two pounding seasons in the mountains.

Jack O’Connor was first and foremost an outdoorsman, but he was also an English professor, which led to the marriage of the two and his prolific writings on everything from firearms, wildlife history and hunting.
