Goodbye, 2013

Goodbye, 2013

Whew, boy. 2013 was nothing if not a wild, wild year. From animal attacks to dumb poachers to a brewery actually offering a cool $1 million for the capture of Bigfoot, there was no shortage of headlines for me to cover these last 12 months.

In case you missed one (or all!) of this past year's "Wilder World Outdoors" entries, I've categorized them below.

Here's to 2014, folks. Happy New Year!
