Releasing a Bear Back into the Wild

Ever wonder what happens to problem bears? Usually they are trapped by game wardens and then released back into the wild. I found this video on youtube of some bear managers releasing a black bear back into the wild. They use noise makers to scare the bear away from humans and re-instill fear of humans. Check out the video:

 

Calico Buck in Wisconsin

I just got this email today. Has anyone else seen or heard about this Calico buck taken in Wisconsin? Appearantly he sold the buck to Cabela’s for $13,000. I wonder what it scored.

A buck that a hunter got in Wisconsin. He sent these pictures to a bunch of people to see what he could get and the owner of Cabela’s paid him $13,000 for the head and hide. A calico buck, like this one is rarer than an albino.
