Iowa DNR positive about rabbit, squirrel hunting

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

August 31st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa officials have a positive outlook for the state’s latest rabbit and squirrel hunting seasons. The state Department of Natural Resources says the outlook is based on population surveys and availability of food sources. Both seasons begin today (Saturday).

Officials say southern Iowa has the best rabbit densities heading into the fall, but hunters around the state should see better cottontail numbers when compared to last year. The cottontail season will run through Feb. 28. Officials expect above average numbers for squirrels this season. That’s based on the mast production of several hardwood trees, which tends to be tied to peak squirrel populations. The squirrel season runs through January 31.

Cardinals acquire reliever Axford from Brewers

Sports

August 30th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals have acquired right-handed reliever John Axford from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for a player to be named later. The 30-year-old Axford is expected to join the Cardinals on Friday night when they begin a seven-game road trip in Pittsburgh.

St. Louis general manager John Mozeliak calls Axford “a reliever that offers experience as both a setup man and closer. He’s also a pitcher who brings familiarity with the NL Central, pennant-race baseball and the postseason.”  Axford is 6-7 this season with a 4.45 ERA and 19 saves in 62 games. He led the NL with 46 saves in 2011 while helping the Brewers to the NL Central title.

Sports

August 29th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Tyler Bray threw for 169 yards and three touchdowns, and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Green Bay Packers 30-8 on Thursday night in a preseason finale nearly devoid of starters. Bray, an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee, outshined Chiefs backup Chase Daniel while giving starter Alex Smith the night off. Bray hit Junior Hemingway late in the first half for a touchdown, and then connected with Josh Bellamy and Frankie Hammond Jr. for TDs in the second half.

Vince Young had a rough game for the Packers in place of Aaron Rodgers, who likewise sat the game out. Young was just 13 of 29 for 121 yards and fumbled twice, losing one of them. B.J. Coleman was 2 of 7 for 19 yards on the few series he played for Green Bay.

Iowa puts Stokes on scholarship

Sports

August 29th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa junior Darius Stokes has been awarded a scholarship by coach Fran McCaffery. Coach Fran McCaffery says that Stokes, who has spent the past three seasons as a walk-on for the Hawkeyes, has earned a scholarship because of his energy, enthusiasm and hard work.

Stokes, a 6-foot-7 forward from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has played in 24 games over the past two seasons. His father, Greg Stokes, was an All-Big Ten player at Iowa in the mid-80s and his sister Kiah plays from Connecticut.

Iowa now has 13 scholarship players on its roster for 2013-14.
