    Pedals, a beloved American black bear who walked upright and strolled around the suburbs of New Jersey like a Hanna-Barbera cartoon come to life, was believed to have been killed by a hunter last week, animal welfare activists said. His age was not known. Since 2014 residents of Rockaway Township have posted videos online of the bear strolling through their neighborhoods and backyards with admirable posture, his forepaws pulled close to his chest. Many commented that on first glance, Pedals resembled a man wearing a bear suit. But it appears that local celebrity was not enough to save Pedals during...

    Rattlesnakes can be dangerous and TerrifyingRattlesnakes are common in certain states others are not. Some like them, some don't, if you encounter one and need to dispose of it. Meet Neal Hunt, he demonstrates the correct, easy, and ethical way to do so. Neal explains itís the best way to dispose of one, see the video below. That man bravely picked up the disturbed rattler and snapped it like a bull whip. The snake dies instantly from the neck break and loses its mobility or any natural body twitch like a bite.

    This is one of the most primitive whitetail deer spear hunting experience that you will encounter. Not many hunter will hunt whitetail with a spear because it requires stealthiness. That stealthiness comes in the form of patiences and self-discipline, the rewards far outweighs the grind. In the video Pursuit hunter, Tim Wells, explains his purpose to experience caveman hunting situations. He demonstrates clearly why the spear is not a very popular weapon of choice to hunt with these days. The accuracy is slim and requires a lot of human-created force to take down animals of a decent size. See the...

Accusations have ranged from there being multiple shots (which seems to be implied in the video), to a 'childish' countdown and poor shooting practice in general, some suggested that their choices in deer taken were unethical, and some accused the video-makers of leaving a deer wandering in pain or dying and wasting the meet (suggestions that while one deer fell, two jumped, implying they were hit).

These large rifles tend to feature tactical stocks, bipods, larger scopes, and tapered barrels.

    EVA SHOCKEY HAS BECOME the face of women in the hunting movement, and that is a big deal. There have been exactly two women to grace the cover of Field & Stream magazine in the last 100 years: the first lady was Queen Elizabeth; the second Eva Shockey. The National Shooting Sports Foundation reported that the increase in hunting participation from 2008 to 2012 among males was only 1.9 percent; among women it was 10. In those four short years, the number of female hunters jumped from 3.04 million to 3.35 million. Did Eva have anything to do with that?...

    Though I wouldn't say they are exactly common, dealing with a boar charge is a distinct possibility any time you go into the woods in pursuit of hogs. The hunter in the video almost learned this lesson the hard (and painful way). Watch the video to see just how close that hunter was to being gored by that boar! See the video here.

    A while back in 2015, Kyle Anderson was following a nice 8-point buck that made its way into Michiganís Grand Traverse East Bay. While he was not planning on shooting the swimming deer while it was in the water, he did not want to lose sight of this beauty. Until this woman got involved. During an ongoing and legal hunt, Anderson says in the video description that he faced multiple instances of harassment, but this woman took the cake entirely. Having already called the police on her for illegally parking her car, Anderson walks to confront the woman who continues...

    There are many hog facts, some for hunting, some for conservation issues, but these are good to know during a cocktail party or just to put more porkers on the table. 1. Wild hogs have roamed America since Hernando de Soto introduced them to Florida in 1539. 2. Male and female wild hogs have tusks. They have extremely sharp edges because the upper and lower tusks overlap. The constant gnashing of teeth sharpens the tusks, which make formidable weapons. 3. Wild hogs are just that, domestic pigs gone wild for several generations. Javelinas or collared peccaries are an entirely different...

    The California Department of Fish and Wildlife enforcement division has a limited number of wardens available to cover the entire State. There are approximately 400 wardens responsible for protecting our natural resources from poachers. Considering that there are over three million sportsmen in California, wardens are definitely outnumbered in maintaining order in the outside world. A few years back I decided to pick up a deer tag down in San Diego County, very near my office at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Early the next morning I met Jason at the parking lot near the hunting area. We...

    You read the headline correctly: Namibia took a giant step forward for hunters yesterday when the countryís Ministry of Environment and Tourism said it will officially oppose any calls to restrict hunting and export wildlife products. Chalk one up for common sense as the Namibian government got around worldwide anti-hunting extremists seeking to stop huntersí critical conservation effortsóand, in turn, destroy the economic benefits hunters provide... the cabinet voted to go on the record as a pro-hunting nation, opposing any and all hunting bans-and to campaign against any bans proposed in the future. ... You may recall that the rhino...
