An archery opening-day giant out of southeastern Minnesota

It’s one thing to get a trail cam pic or two of a mature buck, and quite another to have the buck’s sheds, assemble a library of photos of the deer, and then have that buck walk into bow range on the opening day of archery season.
Yet that’s just what happened to Rochester’s LeRoy Purrier last week when he tagged a giant 6-by-5 that stands an excellent chance of making the Boone & Crockett (B&C) record book as a typical. Purrier became aware of the buck back in January, when he purchased a 90-acre property in the Lanesboro area of Fillmore County.

Ohio individual suspected of trafficking turtles, striking officer with vehicle indicted in court

An individual suspected of trafficking red-eared slider turtles in Cincinnati and striking a state wildlife officer with his vehicle was recently indicted in Hamilton County by a grand jury, according to the Ohio DNR (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.
In July, state wildlife officer Brad Turner, assigned to Preble County, received a Turn-In-a-Poacher (TIP) report regarding turtles being sold in Cincinnati. Officer Turner and state wildlife officer Andrew Dowdell, assigned to Butler County, responded to the location. They found two men selling red-eared sliders without the required propagation permit.

Secluded Winford Wildlife Area supports quality deer and pheasant populations

That narrow access lane off a dead-end road is the only way in and out of the Winford Wildlife Area, a 637-acre floodplain grassland, just north of Oskaloosa, Iowa. 
The public wildlife area was created after the Skunk River blew out a levee in 2008 and flooded adjacent crop fields. These fields had been farmed since the early 1900s, but the levee giving out was the final straw. Farmers working the sandy, silty soils decided it was time to get rid of the headache and enroll this land into the Wetland Reserve Program.
