    The growing popularity of bird hunting has created an ever growing need for shotguns. Manufacturers are following suit and have produced an abundance of choices for the consumer to choose from. A majority of hunters still use the tried and true pump action models that our fathers and grandfathers used back in the day. However, more and more hunters and shooters are looking for a semi-automatic shotgun that will serve as a multipurpose firearm.   Recently I picked up the Remington Versa Max Waterfowl in Mossy Oak Duck Blind camo. This shotgun uses a new gas system that Remington calls…

    Usually, deer hunters are focused on preparations for the hunting season. But it should not be overlooked that blackbuck hunting success also occurs even before deer hunting season begins. There are hunters that bag huge game hunts even before the hunting season begins.

    By Mark Kenyon As many of you saw, last Thursday I got a shot at the Ohio buck I’ve been hunting the last two years, Jawbreaker. He was the biggest bodied buck I’d ever seen in the wild and the biggest racked deer I’d ever had a shot at either. I’d had hundreds of trail […]

    If early field reports by bow hunters and those hunting on Managed Lands Deer Permit properties are a sign of things to come, Texas hunters should see deer in good condition and above average numbers of mature bucks when the general season kicks off Nov. 1 statewide. "I had a report of a bow hunter in Walker County connecting on a buck that scored 163 B&C ," said Alan Cain, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department White-tailed Deer Program Leader."

    I was organizing some files this weekend and came across an old tattered folder marked “Hunting.” It was stuffed with maps of refuges and deer zones, pocket guides to shooting times, hunting regulations, hand-written notes about which duck blinds were good and how to hunt them, email addresses and phone numbers for past hunting partners, and other scraps of my early hunting days. I also found a crumpled old hunting license for my younger son, Griff. Seeing it all brought back many memories, mostly fond ones of me and Griff and the gang of  waterfowlers that had kindly taken us…
  • To Accomplish Great Things

    zenhunter
    30 Aug 2014 | 8:24 am
    Long ago, author and Nobel Prize winner Anatole France, said that to accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. I can’t think of anything more true of a successful, memorable hunt than that. All of those elements are part of it; the things that make up the act of hunting – climbing into a tree stand, waiting and watching, deciding to take the shot, drawing the bow, releasing the arrow at the right moment – would be but the small moments they are by the clock’s count without the others. The planning, scouting and traveling; the…

    Gray’s Emmy nomination letter   Fathers and mothers who hunt with their kids will agree: the only thing better than you making an amazing shot at some game is watching your son or daughter make one. And while my own successes have made me grin inwardly from time to time, I pretty much save my bragging for things my kids do. Both my boys hunted when they were young, and Griffin still does, at least as much as work, school, and running his own business allow. But I think the lessons they learned in the field – the education, preparation, and hard work required to overcome adversity…

    About the time that I was born, my father traded his deer hunting rifle for a set of used golf clubs. So I never knew my father the hunter, only my father the golfer. He was obsessed by the game; there was no telling when he would pop up from his easy chair and announce, “think I’ll go play 9 holes.”  He took me with him on the longer outings, trying unsuccessfully to interest me in golf. It just never made sense to me; there seemed no point to it, whacking a ball from place to place. I have missed quite a few shots at ducks, some easy ones, but I have never hurled my…

  • Two ways to stay warm in the tree stand

    Our Guest Blogger Program
    7 Oct 2014 | 3:17 am
    The first thing you should do actually happens before you ever get to your tree stand – keep perspiration to a minimum. It’s no secret that perspiration has the greatest effect on whether we stay warm once we’re in the stand. If we perspire, the dampness cools rapidly and, in turn, cools your body that much quicker. Here are a few ways to keep perspiration to a minimum: Avoid caffeine and spicy foods These types of food can stimulate neurotransmitters called acetylcholine that sometimes affect sweat glands. Try to replace them with more bland foods, especially the day before a big…

    We’ve all heard their songs right before dark in the fall, the yips, barks, and howls of the crafty coyote. Now days there is virtually no place in the U.S. where these song dogs don’t roam. Their ability to adapt to urban sprawl and human intrusion is all too impressive. These canines can change breeding habits, diets, and pack dynamics to cope with the situation they find themselves living in. Females usually have a litter of 3-9 pups per year that are generally born in April or May. This coincides with the fawning season for whitetails as well. Predator populations have changed…

  • Could This Gigantic Fanged Spider Kill a White-tailed Fawn?

    One of the worst parts of doing summer work in the woods, especially in the Southeast, is the giant spiderwebs hanging across trails.It’s like these doggone spiders intentionally know you’re going to be coming in to put out some salt, check feeders, clean up stand sites, do trim work or whatever. They’re lying in wait, spinning webs and then lurking … somewhere … waiting for you do do the “Gaaaa!” dance in the woods trying to get everything off your face-hat-neck and wondering whether a spider is about to chew on your ear.South American Goliath…
  • Flexiblity, Realism Top Attributes of This Must-Have Grunt Call

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    Getting a buck’s attention can be done by rattling antlers together, using a good grunt call and realistic sounds, or bumbling through the woods like a clod and scaring off everything around you.Don’t opt for the last possiblity. Rattling may not work as well in your neck of the woods, depending on the number of deer. Which leaves making realistic vocalizations, and that’s something anyone can do and get better at with practice.Click for more information …Having a great grunt call is a plus, though, and one of our favorites is the Duel Game Calls Stretchback Grunt…

  • How Heat Treatment Improves Knife Steel Performance

    Michael
    7 Oct 2014 | 12:44 pm
    The heat treatment process is arguably one of the most key steps in the process of making a tough, reliable knife. Without proper heat treating, the knife would probably fail at some point during its intended use and edge retention will suffer. Possible setbacks in using such a knife would include brittleness and inability to withstand abrasion and physical impacts, resist deformation due to thermal shock, withstand compression forces or even the inability to retain a usable edge. What is Heat Treating? Although the phrase heat treatment may suggest that this process involves the simple…

That’s the Dragonfly Salt’s lowest price on record from the online retailer for this particular model and the lowest I have ever personally seen any version of the Dragonfly selling for, aside from used auction prices or forum sales. The Dragonfly is one of Spyderco’s most popular “little big knives”. A crowd favorite for EDC due to its light weight and compact size. The Salt model has two major differences from a standard…

    In order to improve your chances of survival in times of crisis, it is very important to wear the proper type of footwear. Poor footwear can restrict your movement to a significant extent. When seconds matter high mobility is everything. In addition, you will lose a lot of heat through your feet if the shoes you’re wearing are not properly insulated. Not wearing the right kind of footwear during times of disaster can lead to a host of potentially life-threatening problems ranging from cuts, bruises, sores and infection. In extreme conditions the complete absence of footwear could be a…
  • Lansky Turn Box Review: Crock Stick Knife Sharpener with Ceramic Rods

    Today I am reviewing the Lansky Turn Box Crock Stick knife sharpener (model LCD5D with 4 ceramic rods); one of my favorite sharpening systems for its quick touch up ability, ease of use and portability for carrying in the field. Despite my best efforts, I have never been skilled at manual sharpening with a whetstone. Countless hours of practice have mostly lead to inconsistent sharpness, incorrect edge angles, wasted time and much frustration. This simple little $12 sharpening system from Lansky can alleviate all those complications. The Lansky Turn Box is a very affordable, compact, quick…
  • Nano-Oil Review: Best Knife Lubricant for Smooth Delpoyment

    Michael
    16 Aug 2014 | 9:53 am
    Lubrication is of prime importance to prevent the failure of folding knives, tools and other mechanical devices that create friction. A good knife lubricant applied to the pivot can even make stiff blades much easier and smoother to open or close. For my money Nano-Oil (Link) has been the best product for this purpose. Nano-Oil is a premium lubrication option with a price tag to match, but the performance and advantages it offers over other oils is worth the added cost. If you spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on folding knives a high quality lubricant is also a must to keep their…

    This is a big question: which optics should you choose for your long range weapons? The first thing that you do on picking up a rifle scope is to look through the reticle and put it on target.

This kind of shooting is found in both military and sports. Whatever the field of application, the most important requirement for this type of shooting is the rifle scope.

    The most essential quality in the hunting rifle is that it should be reliable and suitable for the owner. Thus, a prospective buyer should make a list of possible models and then visit his or her local gun shop and try each. Keep the rifle on your shoulder, operate the action, switch the safety on and off, dry fire the rifle. Then buy the one that fits best. Stock fit and ergonomics are important, so if a recommended rifle does not fit you, do not buy it. Even the best rifles in the market, like, the Kimber hunting rifles, should be tested prior to purchase. Although a number of hunting…
