Calling all foxes
If you have never tried it, calling red foxes in winter is a challenging activity, and the squalling cries of a mouth call alone are enough to raise the hair on the back of your neck, but to a fox they sound like the dinner bell. Each time a fox kills its prey, the victim emits cries...

KUNTZ: Primer on cottontails
Cottontail rabbits breed from early March through September, so February was the final month of the hunting season for me as a rabbit hunter. Now, I’ve been a rabbit hunter since about the time I learned to read, and I favored a .22 rimfire rifle over anything else. I hunted cottontails...

Browning's legendary Auto-5
A couple years ago I wrote that I was unaware of any U.S. company that still manufactured a 16 gauge repeater. That still remains the case, however, readers should know that Browning Arms Co. has announced the return of the "Sweet Sixteen" Auto-5 that featured the unmistakable "humpback"...

Bill would allow 11-year-olds to get a license, others focus on aging hunters
The largest number of hunting licenses in North Dakota is issued to individuals between 12 and 15 years old, according to data provided from the state Game and Fish Department. That range could soon include 11-year-olds if a House bill passes. Rep. Pat Heinert, R-Bismarck, introduced...

Knife collection showcases unique handles
In my collection of handmade knives acquired over the last 40-plus years are a couple handle materials that I never have seen at either of the big International Custom Cutlery Expositions I attended in Kansas City, nor in my stack of knife annuals dating back to the early 1980s.

Economics of hunting
Every time we pull a package of deer steak out of the freezer, I recognize the economics of being a resident hunter. I buy a deer license for fifteen bucks, drive 25 miles from the house and shoot a white-tailed deer. For an extra $10 I can shoot a doe. In fact, I can shoot several...
