U.S. Waterfowl Harvest The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that more than 1.1 million waterfowl hunters bagged more than 15.9 million ducks and 2.9 million geese in the U.S. during the 2011-12 seasons. The previous season, a similar number of hunters harvested nearly 14.9 million ducks and nearly 3.2 million geese. Mallards were the most commonly taken waterfowl species, followed by gadwalls, Canada geese, green-winged teal, wood ducks and blue-winged/cinnamon teal. U.S. duck hunters spent an estimated seven million days afield in pursuit of ducks during the 2011-12 seasons and bagged more than 16 birds per hunter. Goose hunters spent more than 3.6 million days afield last season and bagged five birds per hunter. Alaska A hiker in Denali National Park photographed a grizzly bear for at least eight minutes before the bear mauled and killed him in the first fatal attack in the park’s history. Investigators have recovered the camera and looked at the photographs, which show the bear grazing and not acting aggressively before the attack. The hiker was backpacking alone along the Toklat River when he came within 50 yards of the bear, far closer than the quarter mile of separation required by park rules. The grizzly was killed by officials and turned out to be a 600-pound boar at least five years old. North Carolina Hunters got 173,553 deer, including 80,014 antlered bucks, during the 2011-12 seasons. In addition, 2,775 black bears were taken during the 2011-12 seasons. Wyoming Last fall the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed gray wolves from the federal list of threatened and endangered species in the state. This delisting places wolves under state management. At the end of 2011, there were an estimated 328 wolves in Wyoming, including 48 packs and 27 breeding pairs. This included 224 wolves, 36 packs and 19 breeding pairs outside Yellowstone National Park. The USFWS released gray wolves from Canada into Yellowstone National Park and central Idaho in 1995 and 1996.

Fashion statement From clothing and firearms to wallets, flashlights and even furniture, hunterstyled camouflage has become an essential feature of the products hunters buy for use in the field and at home. Asked by HunterSurvey. c o m a n d S h o o t e r S u r v e y. c o m what percentage of their hunting equipment purchases were in camouflage, less than six percent of respondents said none. That means 94 percent of the sportsmen and women surveyed purchased at least one camouflage item in 2011. Kentucky Hunters posted the 4th best overall harvest with 119,656 deer taken during the 201112 seasons. A record 68 bucks taken during 2011-12 qualified for the Boone & Crockett Club records.
