From USA Shooting - 17th Title in Sight for West Virginia as NCAA Rifle Season Starts Phase 2 of 2014-15 Campaign

The West Virginia University rifle program has done nothing to deter us from thinking a 17th title is well within its grasp with a perfect 8-0 record at the midway point of the NCAA Rifle season. The second-half of the NCAA rifle season got underway this past weekend with two months remaining before the NCAA Rifle Championship.

Having not lost in 23 consecutive matches including two Great American Rifle Conference (GARC) and two NCAA Rifle Championships, the Mountaineers own eight of the top-nine aggregate team scores overall. In both and Air and Smallbore events, they currently have four of the top individual scores with no other school having more than one representative in smallbore and just second-ranked Alaska-Fairbanks showing two in Air.

From the Delaware Division of Fish & Wildlife - DNREC Fish & Wildlife encourages successful deer hunters to donate venison to Sportsmen Against Hunger

Delaware Sportsmen Against Hunger Dover, Delaware – With Delaware’s archery deer season continuing until Jan. 31 plus three more weeks of various firearm deer seasons coming up in January, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife reminds hunters that the state’s Sportsmen Against Hunger Program gratefully accepts donated venison for processing and distribution to participating charitable groups who provide meals for hungry Delawareans.

“So far, our donations to Sportsmen Against Hunger are down for this season,” said Kent County Regional Wildlife Manager Bill Jones. “We would like to encourage successful hunters who have more venison than they can use to support this program and help those in need. With the January deer seasons still ahead, we have hopes of Delaware hunters matching – or maybe even surpassing – last year’s total of more than 21,000 pounds of donated venison.”

The 2014-2015 Delaware deer hunting seasons will conclude with seasons open on the following dates in January:

From the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism - Don't miss out on late-season waterfowl hunts

DON’T MISS OUT ON LATE-SEASON WATERFOWL HUNTS Don’t store your waders; late season hunts can still prove fruitful

PRATT — Most hunting seasons, including those for ducks, deer and upland birds, will come to a close soon, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stow away your gear yet. Kansas has several seasons to keep you hunting through January, and goose hunting opportunities that run through early spring.

Depending on weather and snow cover conditions, numbers of geese can steadily build in late January and early February around Kansas reservoirs and wetlands. Consider hunting the Canada and light goose seasons, Nov. 12, 2014-Feb. 15, 2015, and the white-fronted goose season, Jan. 17-Feb. 15, 2015, during this time.
