Kansas Special Hunt Applications open July 16

PRATT­­– Each year, hunters can apply for exclusive entry into areas with limited access through the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) Special Hunts Program. This special access tends to mean a higher quality hunt and potentially greater harvest rates, but just like with any other outdoor activity, nothing is guaranteed. Because access to these areas is limited, hunters must apply online for the hunts they desire. The application period for Fall and Winter 2013/2014 Special Hunt opportunities will open July 16 and close Aug. 11.

Many of these are mentor hunts and youth

'Anyone can shoot'

GRAY – “With archery, anybody can shoot,” says Ron Fournier, director of the University of Maine’s 4H Camp at Bryant Pond and a 4H-certified shooting sports safety instructor for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. “It doesn’t matter if you’re the shortest, the tallest, the fastest or the slowest, whether you’re blind or in a wheelchair – we can get anybody shooting.”

On Saturday, July 6, the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray hosted an educational session with Fournier and his wife Dee.

Free IN beginner waterfowl hunting workshops in August

Three free waterfowl hunting workshops for novices and beginners will be offered by the Department of Natural Resources at three different sites in August.

Similar material will be covered at each, so there is no need to attend more than one. Presentation topics will include waterfowl hunting regulations, goose and duck identification, equipment and techniques. There also will be a show-and-tell segment.

Get kids's good for them!

It seems like every day, I see another article discussing all of the positive benefits of getting kids outdoors.  

I recently came across one from the Toronto Star, talking about how one school was seeing striking results, especially with autistic kids.  (You can read the article here).  Pretty neat stuff!  But isn't it a shame that folks are having to find things like this out?  Wouldn't it be great if something like this were never thought of?  

I know when I was a kid, no one would have ever thought this type of thing would be a problem.  But the world has changed.

When folks ask me

Please tell TriStar Sporting Arms "Thank You" for supporting our efforts to get more kids outdoors!
