How Some Quietly Passed Legislation Should Help Improve Hunter Numbers


Modernizing Pittman-Robertson

How this new legislation should help recruit new hunters. We talk a lot about hunter recruitment here in the United States. It is no secret. Things aren’t great. The number of hunting licenses being sold each year is going down as more and more people drop out of the sport. That’s not good news for

DoNotKnowWhoIAm

Gotta be honest with you.   I am still “out of the office”, but still have not been on the ice.  It embarrasses and pains me to say that!  Actually, I have been on it a couple, three times, but have not found any safe enough to fish.  Now, I am fully aware that ice fishing …

The Soul of the Prairie

The Soul of the Prairie

What does a scarcity of bison mean for Nebraska’s grasslands? The plains bison has earned its standing as an iconic large animal of the American prairie. That status was reinforced a few years ago when the bison was named the national mammal of the United States. Bison capture the imagination of people like few other …
