    Video: A Guide to Trading Halloween Candy

    By Chad Love

    This has nothing at all to do with hunting, fishing or anything even remotely outdoorsy, but that's OK because it's Halloween, and this video is awesome. Not only does it remind me of the furious post-Halloween candy-trading sessions of my youth, you might be able to use a few of these strategies on your next gun trade...(via BoingBoing)

    $10M Project to Build Highway Overpasses for Pronghorn Migration

    By Chad Love

    Trains, automobiles, pedestrians and bicyclists all have their dedicated overpasses spanning busy highways below. Now you can speedgoat to that list with the opening of several dedicated pronghorn overpasses in Wyoming.

    From this story on
    The fastest land animal in the U.S. now has safe passage across a Wyoming highway -- extending a seasonal migration that's been going on for 6,000 years. Pronghorn antelope have started using two overpasses atop Highway 191 that were completed this fall, the Wildlife Conservation Society announced this week. Eight-foot high fencing channels the animals to the crossing points.

    Infamous Tampa Bay Mystery Monkey Attacks Elderly Woman in St. Petersburg

    By Chad Love

    Tampa Bay, Florida's infamous "Mystery Monkey" has struck again. The wily primate, which has been on the loose for four years now and has gained national attention, apparently attacked a lady in St. Petersburg.

    From this story on the local Fox News affiliate:

    Wildlife officials are working to trap Tampa Bay's infamous mystery monkey after it reportedly bit and scratched a 60-year-old woman in south St. Petersburg Wednesday. The monkey has been on the run for several years, spotted as far north as Pasco County, Temple Terrace, Town ‘N Country, and Clearwater before ending up in the southern tip of Pinellas County. That's where the monkey has taken refuge for the past year and a half, without much attention. But that all changed Wednesday when authorities say the monkey came from behind the woman while she was sitting on the ground. It's not exactly clear what happened, but the woman ended up with scratches and bite marks.

    Russian Inventor Patents Poop Explosives

    By Chad Love

    I was going to introduce this next story with a (double entendre warning...) crack about deadly payloads. But you know, there's simply no way--no way at all--to do it tastefully. So I won't, except to say that I think this is a Gun Nuts television show segment just waiting to happen.

    From this story in the (UK) Guardian:
    Aleksandr Georgievich Semenov patented an efficiently disgusting weapon system. Using his method, soldiers inside an armoured tank, under battle conditions, can dispose of their biological waste products in an unwasteful way: encasing those materials, together with explosives, in artillery shells that they then fire at the enemy.

    Residents of 'Coon Hunt Court' Attempt to Change Street Name

    By Chad Love

    Yes, this is a real news story and not something from the Onion. Some residents on a certain street in Columbia, Md. are foolishly trying to change the name of their street from one of the coolest names ever, to one of those boring, generic, over-used, whitebread subdivision street names that have zero sense of real place.

    From this story on

    Columbia, Md., has interesting street names that bring to mind hunting and the great outdoors, but residents object to one. “You just buy into a house and then you realize, I'm on Coon Hunt Court,” homeowner Shirley Sickels said. Rosalie Consiglio has been working to get the name changed a long time. “The problems I’ve had is embarrassment with the name,” she said.

    Boy Scouts Kill Rabid Beaver After it Attacks Troop Leader

    By Chad Love

    The headline to this next story may seem funny (OK, so it really is) but anyone who's ever fished out of a float tube knows that beavers can be really scary. And rabid beavers? Nothing says terror like a crazed, rabid beaver coming at you when you least expect it. Luckily, however, Boy Scouts are prepared for that, too.

    From this story on
    A rabid beaver that attacked a Boy Scout leader swimming in the Delaware River was killed after Scouts in the troop pelted it with rocks. The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that 51-year-old Normand Brousseau, of Pine Plains, N.Y., was swimming in eastern Pennsylvania on Aug. 2 when a beaver swam through his legs and bit him in the chest. "I thought it was a giant carp fish," he told the paper.

    Red Tide Blamed for Fish Kill at Texas Beaches

    By Chad Love

    Officials say a toxic "red tide" is to blame for thousands of dead fish that washed up on Galveston, Texas beaches this weekend.

    From this story in the Houston Chronicle:

    State officials confirmed Monday that a toxic algal bloom known as red tide is responsible for thousands of dead fish that washed ashore on Galveston Island the day before. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department biologists found the algae Karenia brevis, one of several types of toxic algae that cause red tide, in concentrations high enough to kill fish in samples taken at Surfside Beach and Galveston Island, said Winston Denton, a biologist with the agency's marine fisheries division and a member of its "spills and kills" team.

    Officials Remove Over 5,000 Pot Plants from CA Wildlife Habitat

    By Chad Love

    The scourge of illicit drug production on our public lands is by now a depressingly well-trod subject, from cartel-funded pot growing operations on national forests to mobile meth labs. It's such a common thing that we should be accustom to it by now, but sometimes the sheer scale and criminal chutzpah of some of these operations still has the ability to make you shake your head.

    From this story on
    The discovery of a large marijuana growing operation in south Sacramento County kept fish and game wardens busy Sunday afternoon. Wardens and other law enforcement officers chopped down more than 5,000 pot plants in the Cosumnes Wildlife Habitat in between the towns of Thornton and Galt.

    Bipartisan National Poll: Conservation is Patriotic

    By Chad Love

    What's just as patriotic as accidentally blowing off a finger or two on the Fourth of July? According to this just released, bipartisan poll from the Nature Conservancy, it's conservation of our natural resources...

    From this press release from the Nature Conservancy:

    Nearing the Fourth of July in the highly partisan atmosphere of a presidential election year, The Nature Conservancy released a bipartisan national poll showing that at least one issue is widely supported by Americans across the political spectrum: the conservation of our nation’s land and water. And, the bipartisan team of pollsters note, from “Tea Party Republicans to liberal Democrats, more than four-in-five American voters say that conserving our country's natural resources—our land, air and water—is patriotic.”
