Photography / March P.O.M. Contest
« Last post by Michael on March 01, 2020, 07:09:49 AM »
This month the Theme is Predators. Any picture can be entered...
1. Pictures can be shot anywhere, as long as they are shot by you.
2. ONE picture with a maximum length on the long side of the photo must be no more than 800 pixels.(If either side of your image is larger than 800 resolution it must be re-sized to comply.)
3. If you win one month, you are out the next.
4. Anyone can submit images including moderators.  This is because the winner will be chosen by the site on an anonymous poll at the end of the month.
5. Winners will have their picture put on the front page of the site.
6. No artistic creations are allowed.  In general, if you are taking something out of the photo it's ok but if you are adding something to an image or changing the original intent of your image and subject it isn't allowed.  For example, adding in more antler on a deer, cloning in more birds, or adding in rain/snow is no longer allowed. However, if you take the color out and make it black and white, clone out a barb wire fence that was distracting, or sharpen an image that is OK.  The intent of this contest is for natural captures only although other artistic creations can be posted in the photo section.  HDR is allowed.  This is a subjective area to judge and we will have to judge if you have gone too far in post process.
7. Theme: Predators
8. If you accidentally enter two Images the last one that you submitted will be entered in the Contest.
9. Images will be accepted for the contest until the Poll for that month is put up.

They were about a half mile away and 400 ft up the hill.There were two 6x7's. The one in the tree's on the left was big. I would have followed them over to the next ridge but is was about 32 degrees and I was concerned about my battery. When I returned the Drone the Battery life was at 20%. I swapped batteries but the wind kicked up. I had to abort  :angry: My drone is a Mavic Pro with a 4K camera.

General Discussion / Washington: House to Vote on Magazine Ban Bill
« Last post by Michael on February 19, 2020, 07:11:56 AM »
 :angry: :angry: :angry:

Your NRA has learned that anti-gun legislators are attempting to hold a floor vote on House Bill 2240 to ban standard capacity magazines during the floor session this Sunday. It’s imperative you contact your state Representative today and urge them to oppose this egregious legislation!

Click Here to TAKE ACTION!!!

House Bill 2240 bans the manufacture, possession, sale, transfer, etc. of magazines that hold more than fifteen rounds of ammunition. This bill is strongly supported by the Governor and the Attorney General. These so called “high capacity” magazines are in fact standard equipment for commonly-owned firearms that many Americans legally and effectively use for an entire range of legitimate purposes, such as self-defense or competition. Those who own non-compliant magazines prior to the ban are only allowed to possess them on their own property and in other limited instances such as at licensed shooting ranges or while hunting. Restricted magazines have to be transported unloaded and locked separately from firearms and stored at home locked, making them unavailable for self-defense.

All bills must be voted out of their chamber of origin by February 19th at 5:00PM. Multiple gun bills are expected to receive votes in the next few days, so please stay tuned to your email inbox and for additional updates.
Bear Hunting / 700-pound black bear shot in New Jersey sets world record

A 700-pound bear shot in New Jersey last year has set a new world record as the largest black bear ever killed with a bow and arrow in North America.

Last week, the Pope and Young Club, a national bowhunting organization, announced that there was a new world record for the largest bow-harvested black bear on the continent. The bear was shot by outdoorsman Jeff Melillo on Oct. 14, in Morris County.

On Feb. 8, the bowhunting and conservation group Pope and Young Club assembled a special panel of judges during the Great American Outdoors Show in Harrisburg to verify the record, the club said in a news release.

All Other Big Game / Washington Bill Establishes Pilot Cougar Hunt with Dogs
« Last post by Michael on February 04, 2020, 03:11:08 PM »

Legislation introduced in Washington by State Senator Timmy Sheldon would establish a 5-year pilot program allowing hunters to use dogs for cougar hunting. The pilot would then be used to determine the effectiveness and need for such a program moving forward. Senate Bill 5100 is awaiting a hearing in the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Water, Natural Resources and Parks.

Take Action Today! Washington sportsmen should call their state senator and ask them to vote YES on SB 5100. Sportsmen can contact their legislators by using the Sportsmen’s Alliance Legislative Action Center Directory.

Animal-rights groups bankrolled a ballot issue in 1996 that banned using dogs to hunt cougars. However, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is still able to use them to track individual problem mountain lions. Under Washington Senate Bill 5100, hunters would again be allowed to use dogs to hunt cougars in certain game management units in Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, Chelan, Okanogan, Mason and Klickitat counties. The majority of the counties included have prime cougar habitat and a higher population of the big cats.

“The use of well-trained dogs to track and harvest cougars is an way to control those species that have no natural predators, which the state has been doing at great cost to taxpayers for years,” said Jacob Hupp associate director of state services at the Sportsmen’s Alliance. “This pilot program is a positive step toward a broader understanding of why predator control is necessary and how hunting dogs can be used to greater protect Washington’s citizens and its natural resources.”
