Hunter takes one of Michigan’s biggest bulls during December season

Click.
That’s the sound of a firing pin striking a centerfire bullet that didn’t show up for work.
In the case of Lake Leelanau, Mich., native Roger Schaub, it could have also signaled the unsuccessful end to a miles-long stalk behind one of the biggest bull elk in Michigan, which in turn would mean a sixth straight frustrating day in Pigeon River Country State Forest.

Lancaster County leads Pennsylvania in stream projects as ag area improves its water quality

A case of possible hunter harassment has drawn the attention of the Portage County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio Division of Wildlife.
