Wild horses that roam Theodore Roosevelt National Park may be removed, but many oppose the plan

The wild horses that roam freely in North Dakota’s Theodore Roosevelt National Park could be removed under a National Park Service proposal that worries advocates who say the horses are a cultural link to the past.
Visitors who drive the scenic park road can often see bands of horses, a symbol of the West and sight that delights many tourists. Advocates want to see the horses continue to roam the Badlands, and disagree with park officials who have branded the horses as “livestock.”

Iowa Great Lakes Fishing Club has a clear mission; getting youngsters involved in the outdoors

Kids under the age of 16 may fish Iowa waters without a fishing license in an attempt to make it easier for young people to be introduced to fishing. That’s the good news.
The bad news? A lot of youngsters never get the chance to fish because they don’t have an adult to take them fishing. Many youngsters are missing the chance to enjoy the outdoors and have a chance to watch a bobber go down and feel the tug of a fish pulling on the other end of the rod. In northwest Iowa, there is an organization doing its part to change that: The Iowa Great Lakes Fishing Club (IGLFC).

Oley Valley Hunting Club in Pennsylvania celebrates 100 years

A hunting camp in Centre County, belonging to a club comprised almost entirely of Berks County residents, recently celebrated its 100th year as an organization. 
The Oley Valley Hunting Club, established in 1923 with 23 original members, selected a mid-August Saturday to gather some members to honor the club’s century of existence. Located just west of the R.B. Winter State Park office, the camp building sits a few yards from Route 192 (formally Brush Valley Road), and within Bald Eagle State Forest. Ray Rohrbach, of Oley, an 83-year-old member who joined the camp in 1972, recalls some of the history passed down to him from two of his half-brothers.

A sweet-corn approach to mourning doves

As my hunting partner Jim Rundell, of Madison, Wis., and I walked across the field, dozens of mourning doves flew up from the flattened stalks in front of us. We were heading for our sitting spots on opening morning.
With swivel-seat stools slung over our shoulders, we were brimming with anticipation of plentiful pass shooting action in the dove fields. Now, if you thought we were crossing one of the 32 fields the Wisconsin DNR manages for the dove hunt, you would be mistaken.

Venerable Mitchell 300s take anglers back in time

I swelled with pride, even though I had just turned 40 at that time. If old guys were still using reels they bought as young men or teenagers, my Mitchell reels should last till I’m 64, too.
