Remember Rex Rammell? His name was all over this blog for a while in 2006 when the state of Idaho ordered that his escaped domestic elk be shot. Rammell was kind of vocal about that decision. And in case you’re wondering what he’s saying these days, here’s the latest from an AP Story on AOL News:
Rex Rammell, a long-shot candidate slated to run against incumbent C.L. "Butch" Otter in the May 2010 GOP primary, [was at] a Republican rally Tuesday in Twin Falls where talk turned to the state's planned wolf hunt. . . .

Crossbows will be legal during the Keystone State’s fall archery season. The only question is: How much of the archery season?

Bear-related complaints and incidents have risen steadily in New Jersey since Gov. Jon Corzine forced his nonlethal management plan on the state in 2006. So what will it take to get another bear hunt? How about new governor?
“Sportsmen are needed to help prevent the confirmation of Cass Sunstein as head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

A National Park Service release said Chad Gierlich, 37, Chris Gierlich, 35, and Kyle Narasky, 35, have been poaching trophy-sized bucks within Yosemite's boundaries for several years.

I've been blogging for Field & Stream for a year now, and to be honest it's grown a little stale for me. It's a lot of work to come up with a topic, a news item or a link every day and then figure out some way to make it relevant, thought-provoking or funny for the F&S readership.
