Archer in Buffalo County, Wis., shoots cougar after fearing for his safety while deer hunting

When 39-year old Wisconsin bowhunter Ben Karasch climbed into his tree stand on Saturday, Nov. 11, he was hoping to see one of the legendary Buffalo County bucks, not an adult cougar stalking him. 
Karasch was hunting on private land in the township of Montana near Gilmanton in northern Buffalo County.
“I’d climbed into my ladder stand that afternoon and by early evening I hadn’t seen a deer.  That’s unusual for this area,” said Karasch.

Partnerships in Ohio help hunters serve the hungry

The spaghetti, tacos, and lasagna served at the City Mission of Findlay, Ohio, likely is made with ground venison, not ground beef, and chances are the mission’s guests never suspect the difference.
Cooked properly, venison can be substituted for ground beef in nearly every recipe without lifting a questioning lip, according to Miriam Ibarra, the mission’s food service manager.
During the 2022-23 hunting season, hunters donated 1,132 deer for free processing. That meat was then distributed to the needy through 60 local charitable organizations and food banks.

Pennsylvania elk hunters enjoy big success

Pennsylvania general-season elk hunters endured rain on day one and some were treated to snow on the morning of the third day of the state’s limited-permit elk hunt.
Pennsylvania Game Commission elk biologist Jeremy Banfield described the remainder of the week as “great hunting weather, with temperatures that make meat care and preparation easy.” The good weather allowed hunters to build on their opening day success.

Hoofin’ it for ducks: Experience the joys of the jump-shoot

The Minnesota waterfowl season has been a head-scratcher at times. The year began with pretty good success, as reported by a wide range of hunters across the state. But that enthusiasm quickly waned as mild weather kept ducks from migrating from northern haunts to Minnesota sloughs.
Then, local ducks soon wised up, giving even grizzled waterfowlers fits. Perplexingly, even when an arctic blast hit North Dakota, blanketing outstanding duck habitat in snow and ice, ducks seemed to have skipped over vast sections of our state.
