Canada possibly reversing gun control laws
Prior to my departure to Saskatchewan a few years ago, I bought a Remington 870 12 gauge, to give to my Canadian host and hunting partner. He was appreciative, of course, but more importantly, it saved him from a two-year wait for his government to make background checks as to his...

Bernie Revering column: Goodbye to some CRP?hunting acres
The private lands open to sportsmen -- in too many North Dakota locations -- will cease to yield pheasants and sharptail grouse next October. The reason is the reduction in acreage of the Conservation Reserve Program, as a part of the 2008 Federal Farm Bill. The familiar PLOTS signs...

Bernie Revering column: MN?food banks received a lot of venison
The 2007 deer harvest in Minnesota ranked about fourth in seasonal kills. Not a record, but it did result in a very large amount of delicious wild game finding its way into area food banks. Sportsmen were given the opportunity to do so, thanks to a new plan, which paid for processing...
