12 Biggest Hunting Headlines of 2012

12 Biggest Hunting Headlines of 2012

As 2012 winds down, it's a great opportunity to reflect on the year that was: the hunts we went on, the lessons we learned, the animals we killed (or missed), the times we shared with others and the stories that captured our attention as a hunting community. And when you really think about it, we saw quite a lot.

There was the bizarre, like the Brazilian fisherman who choked to death on a fish. There was the controversial, like the Wisconsin hound dog that got mauled by wolves, the battle in Minnesota to stop a wolf hunt from taking place or the creation of a PETA porn website. And then there was the always comical Jase Robertson from Ducky Dynasty, who sat down with Eric Conn to talk about life as a bearded (and humbly famous) duckman.


Like any year, 2012 had its fair share of newsworthy happenings. To honor and celebrate the year that was, we at Game & Fish have decided to countdown our favorites.
