    Video: Florida Black Bear has Rough Landing

    By Ben Romans

    Last Monday, a big black bear crashed to the ground with a thud from its perch 30 feet up in a tree after Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWCC) officers shot it with a tranquilizer and tried catching it with suspended tarps.

    A story from UPI says some residents in the Panama City, Florida neighborhood initially thought the animal was a dog roaming the streets until they saw it climb a tree, but were glad officials were relocating it to the Apalachicola National Forest—especially after its hard landing, which FWCC Officer Jerry Pitts said actually went just as planned.

    Video: This Archer is Faster Than Legolas

    By Colin Kearns

    If you can get past the robotic narrator, the archery stunts in this video are pretty entertaining. (I especially got a kick out of the parts where he shoots while jumping onto a mat.) In the clip, archer Lars Anderson shoots 10 arrows in 5 seconds. His speed secret is holding all of the spare arrows in his right hand so he can fire them in rapid succession. A trick like this might be valuable in a Middle Earth orc war, but in a treestand—not so much. Still, like I said, pretty entertaining. Lars should team up with Joerg, the slingshot guy.

    Reader Photo of the Day: "New Mexico 11-point Muley"

    Photo by Dmgiss. This huge muley was taken in New Mexico. Dmgiss elaborates: "We spotted a group of 5 bachelor bucks about 400 yards away. There were 2 shooters in the group. After 2 hours we got to within 23 yards of the giant 11-pointer. I had a small juniper tree between the buck and myself. I drew back my Bowtech Insanity Cpx and the arrow found its mark. I later recovered my mule deer of a lifetime, and it was done on public land."

    Animal Rights Activists Just Realize Nikon Makes Hunting Scopes

    By Ben Romans

    Nikon, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of camera gear and rifle scopes, has recently met the ire of animal rights groups for producing hunting equipment.
    According to an article in the U.K.’s The Independent, the heart of the problem for many is in its marketing materials; Nikon portrays itself as being “at the heart of nature” in pieces promoting camera gear, and “the proven choice for dangerous big game hunting” in scope write-ups. Animal welfare proponents think it’s a conflict of interest.
    Though the author of the article clearly has a bias against Nikon and hunting, the article goes on to say that many recognized wildlife photographers—some like Stefano Unterthiner, winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year in 2008—have used Nikon products for years, but have just became aware the company also makes rifle scopes.

    Ohio Bills Will Make Fishing, Hunting Easier and Cheaper for Active Military, Veterans

    By Ben Romans

    Two bills currently being considered by the Ohio state legislature could make it easier for both active military personnel and veterans to enjoy the outdoors in the Buckeye State.
    According to an article on, HB 47, proposed by state Rep. Zach Milkovich (Akron, D-35) would waive license fees for honorably discharged veterans, while HB 65 would allow active military on leave to hunt deer or turkey without purchasing a permit from the state’s Department of Natural Resources. Ohio already allows active military members to fish, hunt small game and trap fur-bearing animals without a license, but currently require hunters to purchase deer or turkey permits.

    By CJ Lotz

    Wisconsin is moving closer to allowing hunters to use crossbows during archery deer hunting season. One of the top deer-hunting states, Wisconsin has also been one of the strictest against crossbow hunting.

    The state Legislature is reviewing a bill that would create a crossbow license and allow hunters to pursue deer with the weapon. Proponents of Assembly Bill 194 say crossbows recruit new hunters and retain older hunters because they are easy to use.
