Armed with a scientific analysis suggesting bright pink could be just as safe as blaze orange -- and perhaps less visible to deer -- members of the bipartisan, all-male Wisconsin Sportsman's Caucus donned bright pink T-shirts that read "HUNT PINK" to unveil their proposal in Madison.

    If you wonder how ammo is made, starting with raw metal, check out this video from Hornady. It shows how bullet jackets are formed from copper, followed by insertion of a lead core. The jacket is then closed up over the core with the bullet taking its final shape in a die (a cannelure is applied on some bullet types). Next the video shows how cartridge brass is formed, starting with small cups of brass. The last part of the video shows how cases are primed and filled with powder, and how bullets are seated into the cases, using an automated process on a giant assembly-line. At its 100,000+…

Coleman’s legislation, dubbed the “Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2015″, would not ban online sales outright, but it would impose many restrictions and set up a Federal tracking system to “watch” ammo buyers. While H.R. 2283 would not cap the quantity of ammo someone could purchase, the legislation would impose numerous barriers to sale. Most notably, buyers would have to supply identification in person before the product…

  • Deer Talk Now: Bowhunting Shot Placement is a Game of Angles

    Alan Clemons
    26 May 2015 | 8:44 pm
    When you’re deer hunting and have a big buck or doe within range, your best shot placement on the deer depends on the angle that deer is standing when you release the arrow. Makes sense, right? A broadside or slightly quartering-away shot is what most bowhunters look for. A severe quartering-to or quartering-away is doable but only with the most precise shooting from a confident hunter and even then, maybe not. Those are tough, challenging and potentially wounding shots. And, of course, having a buck or doe right underneath your stand means you’re standing there begging it to take…

The veggies can be prepped a day or two earlier, or even at home to take to camp. Venison can be chunked and marinated beforehand. Add some spicy sausage on the skewers to kick it up a notch. Here’s a great and easy kebab recipe from D&DH reader Stephen Krull. Give it a try!

  • WATCH: Deer Ducking an Arrow

    Daniel E. Schmidt Editor-in-Chief
    25 May 2015 | 10:07 am
    Can a deer duck, dodge or otherwise avoid being hit by an arrow? This is a common topic among bowhunters, especially when bowhunting season starts. Here’s a little insight from a trail camera sequence capture by our editor-in-chief. By Daniel E. Schmidt Seasoned bowhunters often use the “deer ducked my arrow” excuse as a reason why they missed a shot on that buck of their dreams. Is it true? Can deer really dodge an arrow that’s speeding at them at 300 feet per second (or faster)? We’ve addressed this topic many times in Deer & Deer Hunting. We’ve even enlisted NASA scientists…

  • Top 4 Bird Watching Binoculars This Season

    Mark Griffin
    14 May 2015 | 9:54 pm
    Within the field of birding, there are many different sub categories and observing birds over long distances in wide open areas like at the coast or near a lake is very different to going birding in a thickly wooded forest. So it is impossible to say that this is the best birding binocular and leave it at that, you need to decide if you need a pair for a specific niche or if you are looking for a good all round birding binocular that will perform well in a variety of different situations. Small Binoculars A lot of small binoculars have lenses that are in the range of 25mm to 28mm. Obviously,…
  • 5 Best Mountain Hunting Rifles

    Mark Griffin
    6 May 2015 | 3:54 am
    Every rifle has its advantages and disadvantages. Some rifles are super light, but not every hunter can shoot them accurately because of the increased recoil. Some great shooting rifles are just too heavy to pack up the mountain. In my experience, a rifle that is light as possible and still allows a hunter to consistently shoot 1 ½ MOA groups is adequate for normal ranges. Not every hunting rifle for 2015 is up for the job, but here are 10 that I would not hesitate to take on an once-in-a-lifetime hunt. Although these selections are made with sheep, goats, mule deer, and elk in mind, no…
  • How Do Holographic Sights Work?

    Mark Griffin

    Holographic sights are quite common when it comes to shooting. But have you ever taken the pains to know how it works. There are several benefits if you have the knowledge about its working. Shooters and hunters are at times confused regarding the choice of the optic. Besides the riflescopes, if you are planning to buy something else then holographic or red dot sights are your options. As far as the brands are concerned, the Eotech Holographic Sight 512 is doing quite well. So how does the holographic sights differ from the rest of the firearm optics?

  • Case of Chronic Wasting Disease is Confirmed by Michigan DNR

    Michigan Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a case of a white tailed deer that tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease. The animal was initially found in Ingham County and though the state has been diligently trying to protect the deer herds, this is the first instance of the dreaded CWD in Michigan. The game commissions of all states have been watching, testing and guarding against this disease for quite awhile now. CWD is an illness that can infect any member of the deer family and it is almost always deadly. Up until now, however, all the wild animals that have been tested…

    What is the big deal about a single elk that causes it to be closely watched by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission? After all, it isn’t like there aren’t elk in the state. In fact, Nebraska Game and Parks has said that the elk herds are expanding and getting larger. Elk populations are now up around the 3,000 animal figure in the state. It might not seem like a solitary elk would make much difference. Yet such is the case of an elk that was spotted near South Bend, Nebraska. On May 22, 2015, it was reported in the NEBRASKAland Magazine that the elk that had been spotted around South Bend…
  • New Jersey DEP Suggests Black Bear Hunt Changes

    The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is proposing several changes to black bear hunting in New Jersey. If accepted, the revisions would specifically have to do with the CBBMP, or the New Jersey Comprehensive Black Bear Management Policy. Black bear hunting season in New Jersey is normally conducted in December. The hunt that concluded this past December was the fifth year that black bear hunting has taken place. There are some problems, though. For one thing, since the season isn’t very long, bad weather and poor hunting conditions can make the black bear hunting difficult.
  • New York’s White Tailed Deer Numbers Down in 2014

    The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has released its 2014 white tailed deer harvest numbers and they aren’t greatly different than those from 2013. A total of 238,672 deer were taken in 2014 and this is a decrease of only 2 percent from the previous year, when 243,567 deer were bagged. The number is still 5,116 white tails more than the five year average. Of the total number deer that were taken, 108,604 of them were adult bucks and a little over 90,000 were adult does. This is a decrease in the number of bucks taken, compared to 2013, but it is an increase in…
  • Harvest Numbers are Up for Deer in Maine

    17 May 2015 | 7:37 pm
    The 2014 deer harvest numbers for Maine are in and Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife reports that despite the harsh previous winter, the harvest numbers were quite good. Because of extreme cold and heavy snowfall in the winter of 2013, IFW lessened the number of any-deer tags available in 2014 by 20 percent. It was feared that winter-kill numbers would be extremely high, so the decrease was meant to offset the number of deer deaths that occurred because of the weather. Though lowering the number of any-deer tags probably did help the deer, it surprisingly didn’t seem to have…

    EOTech, a division of L-3 Communications Warrior Systems Division, delivers cutting edge technology and products in the fields of holographic sighting systems. Many shooters today view the holographic sights produced by companies like EOTech as red dots, which in the case of eye relief, zero exit pupil, and an unlimited field of view would be correct. However, that is where the similarities would end. Unlike red dot sights, holographic sights use a laser to illuminate a hologram (an etched pattern of a reticle image) set between two pieces of glass. This allows the reticle to be viewed even…
