The Hunting Poodle
The Gun Dog Magazine website has an interesting article on the development of the standard poodle as a hunting dog. And no, there’s not believed to be originally from France!

The AKC’s Legislative Relations team keeps track of legislation on a state-by-state basis.

A Tick Vaccine?
The CDC estimates that nearly a half million people are infected with Lyme disease every year.
Clinical trials have started for a new vaccine developed by a doctor in Massachusetts that would prevent Lyme Disease in people. The vaccine is designed to deliver “anti-Lyme antibodies” directly to a patient. “The shot would kill the bacteria from a tick bite before a person would be infected.” Annual shots would follow.

Hunting Spots for Next Year
In Upland Nation, Scott Linden lists some ideas on places to check to identify new hunting spots.
- U.S. Bureau of Reclamation https://www.usbr.gov/recreation/
- U.S. Army Corps of Engineers https://www.usace.army.mil/missions/civil-works/recreation/
- State Wildlife or Game Production Areas: see state agency website
- US military bases https://www.iSportsman.net
And of course, state parks, tribal lands, private timberland, hydropower/dam and irrigation district property, gas and utility transmission rights-of-way, paper company lands, privately-owned crop and range lands, state “school lands,” state-owned undeveloped/surplus properties, state forests, conservation group-owned or developed lands.
You get the idea!
