Mountain lion photos I took in 1975 of capture, data taken and release of a lion during the DFG's study that ultimately led to their protection. These are not to be used by anyone for any purpose without permission. by Bill Beebe.....
This is the way mountain lions should be hunted in California. With a camera, dogs of course, but no mechanized assistance including horseback. The trophy is your photo.
Yvonne: These photos were taken during the DFG's mountain lion study
in 1975. The capture took place on property west of the Hunter-Liggett
Military Reservation in Monterey County. Participating were a couple
of DFG biologists and wardens, along with the tracker and houndsman. I
participated in the capture. The photos and story appeared in the
Lund Alaskan is as comfortable towing and hauling as it is fighting fish
New York Mills, Minn. - One can only imagine what the Canadian fur trade of the 1600’s could have been if Gussy were there moving pelts and making money in a Lund Alaskan. Hudson’s Bay Fur Company would have been named “Gussy’s Goods” and his likeness still minted on the Canadian one dollar bill.
In reality, Lund Pro Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson is a frontiersman guide who tasks his Alaskan with everything from ferrying trophy bucks upstream to deer camp to holding steady over a school of walleyes in rough waters. The Alaskan, and Gussy, are simply that multitalented. (PS. Gussy’s versatility also has him flinging Rapalas for bass from a Lund Predator on the FLW Tour.)
So sit back and let the trapper and Lund rapper tell you the tale of the Lund Alaskan.
More family-friendly features. Lund quality and craftsmanship. More fish in the livewell. All for a lot less money than you’d expect. Lund boats, built by fisherman for fisherman…and their families too.

Ithaca, NY—Across the continent, birds are in a flutter of wooing and nest-building. Perhaps there’s an American Robin building her mud and grass bowl on your porch light or a Northern Mockingbird weaving a twiggy nest in your shrubs. If you find a nest nearby, you have a front-row seat to the daily drama of bird life. It’s also a perfect opportunity to become part of the NestWatch project at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. NestWatch has been tracking trends in the nesting success of hundreds of species of birds across the country for more than 40 years.
“It’s only when many thousands of volunteers are collecting data over a vast area that scientists can fully measure the impacts of environmental change and land-use on breeding birds,” says Jason Martin, NestWatch project leader. “Take climate change, for example. We need a massive amount of data to investigate the potential impacts that altered climatic patterns may have on breeding birds. If birds start nesting sooner, as some species are doing, they may eventually become out of sync with their food supplies.”
