    Video: Snook Fishing from a Fly Board

    By The Editors

     

     

    We won't try to disguise this as a possible new trend in fishing. Nope, this is nothing more than a guy with a rod, some video cameras, board shorts that need to be tightened, and way too much time on his hands.

    A story from the Daily Herald says Keith Mohr was in the shower on Friday when he heard a loud crash and his wife screaming. When he realized a buck was tearing his house apart, he reached for a golf club and struck the deer, knocking an antler off in the process.

    Women make up an increasing number of Wisconsin deer hunters, mirroring a nationwide trend. Last year Wisconsin sold 614,435 gun deer tags and 62,000 went to women. That number is estimated to grow by 43 percent by 2030 as more women take up hunting. The Wisconsin DNR has increased license sales with learn to hunt classes and inexpensive licenses for first-time hunters. Many of those new hunters are women.

    Oregon Hits 34,000 Hunters with $25 Fine

    By Ben Romans

    Nearly 34,000 hunters that pursued deer or elk in Oregon in 2012 but failed to complete a state-required report card will have to pay a $25 penalty before they can buy another hunting license in the state.

    A story from the Mail Tribune says of the 298,000 Oregon deer and elk tags sold, the holders of 29,000 deer tags and 17,000 elk tags didn't file a report for the 2012 season. Though some of the 33,600 non-complying hunters purchased both deer and elk tags, the state won’t require them to pay more than $25, and in a perfect world, the state would amass $840,000 in fines if each penalized hunter pays the fee.

    This past Saturday, two men came to the aid of a shark that was choking on a large piece of moose hide in the shallow waters of a Newfoundland harbor.

    CBC News says Derrick Chaulk was driving along a harbor when he saw what he thought was a beached whale. When he and another local man, Jeremy Ball, investigated closer, they saw it was a Greenland shark with a large chunk of moose hide protruding from its mouth.

    Endangered Red Wolves Shot in North Carolina

    By Phil Bourjaily

    From this story in the Huffington Post, six endangered red wolves have been shot in the last five weeks, bringing the year's total to nine of the rare wolves killed by gunshots since January 1. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources commission opened a five-county area to coyote hunting last year which may have lead to accidental shooting deaths of the wolves (in the photo above, the coyote is on the left and red wolf is on the right). Red wolves are smaller than gray wolves and reddish in color. Some pair with coyotes, increasing the chance they may be mistaken for a coyote.

    When You Spend Too Much Time in a Deer Stand

    By Ben Romans

    Spending too much time in a ground blind has apparently affected David and Dean Giarrizzo’s sanity. The two brothers from Ohio recently created what they’re calling a tribute to hunting and America’s number one big-game animal by lampooning a viral YouTube hit, into a viral hit of their own.

    Late last week, a University of Windsor researcher identified a mysterious (and rare) fish hoisted from the waters of Davis Strait in Canada’s northernmost territory.
     
    A report from CBC News says researcher Nigel Hussey, who also works with the Ocean Tracking Network, said the fish, which looks like a mix between a stingray and a shark, is a long-nosed chimaera—a species known to be caught only once before. Photos of the fish have gone viral on the Internet.
