Hunting Group Says Arby’s Elk Sandwich Promotes Unethical Game Farms

When it comes to Arby’s restaurants, most of us either love them or hate them. Originally erected back in 1964, the original Arby’s was located in eastern Ohio and quickly made a name for themselves by serving only roast beef sandwiches, chips and soft drinks.

Earlier this month, the restaurant chain announced plans to bring back the popular venison sandwich, available with either deer or elk meat, depending on location. Released last year, the sandwiches did experience some success and according to...

Looking to gain additional insight into both the causes and perpetrators of elk mortality in Idaho’s panhandle region, state biologists look very closely at the clues left at each site.

Possible Nebraska Record Elk Arrowed by Bowhunter

Perhaps waiting as patiently as he had done to get an opportunity to hunt elk, Nebraska hunter John Rickard is awaiting the official score of his Nebraska elk taken earlier this month. As dictated by official scoring agencies, Rickard’s 6×6 elk antlers are currently waiting out the 60-day drying process in the basement of his home.  The animal, taken near Chadron, is believed to be of record-breaking caliber and the story behind how he acquired it is every bit as breathtaking as the elk itself. Rickard, who manages the finance department at a local automotive dealership in Kearney, Neb.,...
