NY hunters killed 1,358 black bears in 2013 by Dick Nelson

New York bear hunters took 1,358 black bears during the 2013 hunting seasons, making last year's kill the second highest on record. Most of those bruins were pulled out of the Southeastern Range as hunters took a record 636 - up from the 442 taken in 2012. Of those 636, bowhunters took 201 and muzzleloaders killed four. Percentage wise the male/female ratio was 57-43 respectively. Since bear hunting is prohibited in Montgomery County no bruins were killed in that neck of the woods -- at least no ...

Not much trout action, but thousands attend rally by Dick Nelson

Anyone who missed the opener of New York’s trout fishing season didn’t miss much. No matter where you went, chances were the water was high, fast, cold and muddy - four conditions that make for terrible trout fishing. The only thing the opener had going for it was the weather inasmuch as the sun was shining and there was relatively little wind to speak of — not that there were many fly-fishermen out trying to lay down a dry fly. But trout fishers were well aware of conditions b ...

Looking forward to a successful trout season by Dick Nelson

When most people think about trout fishing, they often picture a person standing knee-deep and alone in a remote stream, fly rod in hand and dressed as if he or she just stepped out between the pages of an Orvis catalog. Indeed, fly fishing has always had a tweedy history, with practitioners viewed as having an unfounded snobbish demeanor that may have began with Theodore Gordon — a somewhat reclusive individual long recognized as the father of American dry-fly fishing. But while that stuf ...

SAFE Act repeal trumps crossbows by Dick Nelson

I received an email the other day from a reader who wanted to know how I compared the NY SAFE Act with the New York Bowhunters opposition to the crossbow, and of the two which I thought was more extreme. The question was a no-brainier since the SAFE Act infringes on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, while NYB opposition to the crossbow is more of a social issue that deprives hunters of a perfectly legal implement with which they can hunt. But, as I wrote back to the reader and wi ...

Speaking of elephants and lions To the editor: In response to Mark Collins somewhat convoluted editorial, which I thoroughly enjoyed,  I think 400 sq. ft. is a ridiculously small area even for a newly born baby elephant and 144 sq. feet for a lion is downright criminal. Once, when I was younger and not as wise as I am now, I went to the Bronx Zoo. There in his 144 sq. ft. cage was a full grown male lion lay sleeping the winter away in his 144' sq. ft. cage. Being a wise acre, well educated ...

Getting our money's worth To the editor: According to the American Zoo Association, the indoor requirement for an elephant is 400 square feet and a lion a measly 144 square feet. On this area they are judged to be able to live fairly normally with room to exercise, eat, sleep and eliminate. Their environment has to be climate controlled with a surface that is easy to clean as well as durable, their water and feed non-toxic. Northville students have this and more. They rate somewhere between ele ...

Death of a beaver pond To the editor: Hi, I'm a pair of young beaver that have come up the river to this side creek to start a family. First we build a dam then a small house. All kinds of animals and birds come to join us and start a family. Trout, coon, ducks, mink, muskrats, frogs and mosquitos, etc. The bear and deer bring their little ones down from the mountain to get a drink and look for frogs. We can handle trappers fairly well if they are careful where they set their traps and only tra ...
