  1. Gone Hunting
    Hi there, I am looking to get hold of some wild meat for game pies and the freezer this fall. We are moving to NS from PEI next month and I wanted to check if this is legal? If so how can I obtain it? We moved to Canada from England five years ago and my grandfather always hunted game birds...

    I confess that I used to dread hunting season because it seemed unsafe to walk in the woods. The first thing I did when we bought our house 35 years ago was post "No Hunting" signs. But with each November I became increasingly uncomfortable judging and being wary of my hunter neighbors. Those I...

    Pat and I were surveilling a field for night hunting activity when he got a radio call from the state police barracks in Orono. This was before game wardens were issued or had access to any sort of cellphones. The brief message was clear enough: Proceed to Bangor International Airport as there...

    Nathan Bieber, the DIF&W's deer biologist, said that after a mild winter that favored deer survival, and several years of the state's hunters not removing enough does from the landscape, the decision was made to propose the increases. Although any-deer permit numbers are set at the Wildlife...

    In the video, one of the young men was seen kicking the injured deer in the face, while the other stood on one of its hind legs, presumably to keep it from attempting to kick or flee. The two teenagers, who laughed while abusing the deer, then attempted to grab the deer's horns before the...

    When a client called off his Saturday morning hunt with Wayne Bernier of Allagash Adventures Guide Service due to cold weather, Bernier, 51, decided to make the most of the last day of rifle season and head out in search of a buck of his own. And boy did he find one...
  9. Coyote Hunting
    An apple a day might keep the doctor away but definitely not a coyote. Malcolm MacNeil was surprised when his trail camera captured images of seven coyotes sniffing in the woods behind his home in Glencoe Mills, Inverness County. And he wasn't too thrilled about how many of his apples they ate...

    A 104-year-old woman in Wisconsin had a bit of that beginner's luck this season when she bagged a buck during her first hunt. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on Tuesday said Florence Teeters is the oldest person in the state to purchase a gun license and harvest a deer. Teeters was...

    You might follow a deer all day and not get an opportunity for a good shot, or a deer might spook the minute you get up from your stand. That's hunting. It ends this way more often than not. A North Maine Woods deer hunt is not easy, but if you like a vast area to hunt with few other hunters and...

    Nickels, 51, serves as the caretaker on Lasell Island, which is due east of Camden. And during frequent deer hunting adventures, he has been constantly outwitted by the eight-point buck.

  14. Deer Hunting
    I just wanted to reach out to see how folks were making out with their hunting in these two zones. I've been hunting down here with the same group of guys (4 of us) for going on our 3rd year, and we have yet to find success. We have seen a doe, and bear, and have been eating tag soup for the...

    New Hampshire hunters killed more bucks - adult male deer with antlers - last season than in any other hunting season on record, an indication that the state's deer population is growing, partly because winters are getting easier for them. "In many parts of the states, the population is higher...
