First case of CWD confirmed in Yellowstone National Park as mule deer buck tests positive

Yellowstone National Park and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) recently confirmed the presence of chronic wasting disease in the carcass of an adult mule deer buck found near Yellowstone Lake in the southeastern section of the park.
This is the first confirmed positive detection of the disease in Yellowstone National Park.

Best management practices for winterizing boat batteries

There are dozens of opinions about how a boat battery should be treated in the offseason. Some say just top off the charge and pull the tarp on Ol’ Wavewacker.
“A fully charged battery is freeze-proof to about 90 below zero,” they say. “Even the U.P. doesn’t get that cold.”
Some people say, “Just hook a trickle charger to it and come back in the spring.” I’m sure it works for some, but certainly not for everyone.

Want to upgrade your compound bow this offseason? Here’s what to consider

The 2023 archery season is still going in many states, but it’s never too early to reflect on past hunts. How did it go? Would upgrading equipment last summer have sealed the deal on a missed opportunity in September, October or November? If so, now’s the time to set up for 2024.
