    Good Game Hunting
    Tim O'Neill
    28 Feb 2015 | 12:24 pm
    This basic game camera from Moultrie offers a 5.0 megapixel resolution, video, infrared nighttime options and some other great options. I recently purchased two and set them up in the backwoods during the end of the 2014 deer season. They were a lot of fun, but I also had some issues to be aware of. All in all this is a decent camera for the price, while giving the hunter the edge they were looking for.

    Editor
    4 Mar 2015 | 4:23 pm
    By Bryan Litz, Applied Ballistics Last month, in the Daily Bulletin, we talked about twist rate and muzzle velocity. That discussion was based on a detailed study published in Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting. In this article, we look at how twist rate and stability affect the Ballistic Coefficient (BC) of a bullet. Again, this topic is covered in detail in the Modern Advancements book. Through our testing, we’ve learned that adequate spin-stabilization is important to achieving the best BC (and lowest drag). In other words, if you don’t spin your bullets fast enough…

  • Swivel Bipod Locking Handle Options

    If you’ve ever used a Harris Swivel Bipod, you know that, without tools, it is difficult to put enough tension on the swivel locking knob to really lock the unit solid. And, if you do manage to get the knob really tight (perhaps by using pliers), it is difficult to loosen with fingers alone. That was why Terry Cross and the folks at KMW Long Range Solutions invented the Pod-Loc™. This system replaces the knurled swivel tension knob with a push-button adjustable handle. Using the handle you can easily set the swivel tension at any level from loose to “rock solid”. And you…

    They say “things are bigger in Texas”. Well shots are longer too. In this video, a shooter successfully hits a 1-MOA target at 3600 yards with a .375 CheyTac rifle. That required plenty of elevation to compensate for the bullet’s drop over its 2.045 mile trajectory. The shooter, Jim Spinella of New Jersey, needed a whopping 60.2 Mils of elevation (26.8 in rail, 22.6 in turret, 10.8 hold-over). Jim had to wait a long time to confirm the hit — with the metal gong situated more than than 2 miles from the firing line, it took the bullet 7.2 seconds to hit the target. Big…

    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…

    Thanks to Jonathan Fassnacht for writing about Bill Vale’s Deer Book. “His book, Taking Pressured Trophy Whitetails is one of the most informative and tactical bow hunting books I’ve ever seen. Bill has the record to prove his strategies. He’s been bow hunting for 40 years and has taken over 30 record animals. In the back of Bill’s book, there is about a 30 page section on trailing wounded deer. I can honestly say, I had no idea that anyone ever got this intense about trailing deer. Bill has collected hair samples from most of the deer he’s shot to compare them once he has…

Cole explained in the forum that he was trying to ambush a nice buck he had been watching all summer. Cole had him figured out. However, every time he was on stand to intercept this trophy, the buck never showed up. Ty suggested a strategy he learned from Bill, but is rarely talked about by anyone else. Here’s Ty’s story of helping his friend Cole who is 3 states away:…

    Read Part One of this feature, published earlier this week …  By Don Higgins Soybean Seed When I started planting soybean food plots, I would simply get some seed from my farming neighbors. It was hit or miss. Some years, it worked great, and I would enjoy some excellent hunting action throughout the season. Other years, it didn’t work so well because the soybeans would “shatter.” That’s a farming term that simply means the bean pods would split open and drop the soybeans onto the ground. I probably don’t need to tell you that a soybean food plot with beans lying in the mud…

    Or … “Shed Scouting is Necessary but Imperfect” Antlers are already dropping and some shed hunters are having some early success. Start scouting for buck activity even before the snow is gone. Whether or not you plan to get out looking for antlers right now, it’s a good idea to at least get out and scout. Drive around and observe where you see deer right now, particularly antlered bucks. Just like in deer hunting, some preseason scouting goes a long way toward later success. Watch for deer using fields in evenings or look for concentrations of tracks or trails in snow or…

To start with the bad news, for the very first time since regulated bighorn sheep hunting started in 1983, there will be no bighorn sheep season this year. The closure is necessary because of an illness afflicting bighorn sheep. Many states have reported the disease, including neighboring South Dakota and Montana.

Since February 2010, over 1,300 dead or dying marine mammals, comprised mostly of bottlenose dolphins, have been found floating offshore of the Gulf or on its beaches and wetlands. Since few animals wash ashore or are found after death, the NOAA says that the carcasses represent only a fraction of the total marine mammals that have died. The number of beached dolphins in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana since 2010 have exceeded past averages by as much as four times. In…
