Fair Chase Part I: Whitetails

Fair Chase Part I: Whitetails

Wildlife Resources

During rut, when bucks are on the move, a combination of careful still hunting and rattling can pay off. Sure, you’re likely to see a lot of deer while sitting in a stand watching a feeder, but you’re narrowing your real hunting time to the half hour the deer need to eat all of the dumped corn. Rattling tends to be most effective just before the rut’s peak when does are coming into estrus and bucks are looking for a fight. At the actual peak of the rut, the big boys are likely to be with does and can be impossible to call away.


What’s Happened to All The Pintails?

What’s Happened to All The Pintails?

Wildlife Resources

Waterfowl managers across the nation know there is a big problem with the Northern Pintail. Starting in the mid-1990s, precipitation returned to the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) of southern Canada and the northern plains of America. Populations of all puddle ducks species escalated to some of their highest numbers since the 1950s, but pintails languished well below their long-term average, disappointing sportsmen with reduced bag limits and perplexing biologists with a population that should have rebounded with conditions.

With gear loaded, we shove out into the river, slipping the canoe through a small break in the cattails. Where we launch, the current is moderate and the river is wide so the paddling is akin to being on a pond. We spend a few minutes coordinating our paddle strokes and situating our gear before heading downstream. The excitement is evident as conversation is light and brisk. However, our attitudes are merely a ruse, for downstream the roar of Texas’ largest waterfall awaits us. There is no turning back now, so we paddle on.
