    This portable battery/charger boasts the most durable solar panel I've ever seen, and it's compact as well. It has helped me extend hunts by allowing me to top off my phone while in the woods, and I've even managed to successfully charge my phone to 100% via solar power. But it's not all fun and games with this product, which seems somewhat less robust than I hoped... and takes longer to charge than advertised. Read the review to learn more....Read Full Post

    My first turkey — taken in the beautiful foothills of Sonoma, California.     I killed an oxymoron this morning. The young male turkey, or “Jake” as he’s known in turkey parlance, was at the head of a gang of five, walking cautiously along a fence line as he craned his neck to eyeball our decoys. At 36 yards I pulled the trigger, and the borrowed 870, tricked out for just such a bird and moment, dropped him with finality. It was only around 10:30am but we’d been at it since dawn. He felt heavy when I hoisted him up, about 16 pounds. More accustomed to…

    I had this stuff for a while before I wrote this review. I used it with some success, and with some failure. I think the chemicals are pretty good, which is the only reason I gave them four stars... but the packaging leaves a lot to be desired. And be sure to never use the solvent unless the area is VERY well-ventilated... it's powerful stuff. But it's made in USA, and I always like that.

  • How Ammunition and Firearms Cartridges are Named - What Makes a 30-06 a 30-06?

    15 Apr 2014 | 12:35 am
    When it comes to naming cartridges, there are no rules. Sometimes they don't even make sense. This often stems from the fact that the folks who develop new rounds are mavericks who don't easily conform. Other factors include changing standards... at one time in the 1800s, caliber plus black powder charge was the norm (45-70, 32-20, 44-40, etc). Along came smokeless powder, and that trend was of course upset. Here are some examples of cartridge names, what they mean, and how they vary....Read Full Post
  • Should You Always Hunt With a Fouled Bore?

    14 Apr 2014 | 5:17 am
    I've hunted for a long time and have made a few great shots along with a bunch of good ones, and I've never babied my rifle's bore. In general, I believe you should always hunt with a fouled rifle bore. How fouled is too fouled? Well, if you eyeball down your bore and see hunks and chunks, you need to swamp it out. Knock out the big pieces and give it a light coat of oil (I like to do the same after toting a rifle in the rain). Read on to learn more......Read Full Post
  • Wheeler Engineering Magnetic Laser Bore Sighter Review

    10 Apr 2014 | 12:44 am
    This is a rare find... a new product that easily earned five stars from me. It's simple, really: a device that sticks to a rifle or shotgun muzzle magnetically and projects a laser parallel with the barrel's bore - so you can get your scope or sights close before you start burning ammo to sight it in. Nothing to go into the barrel, no way it can harm the rifling, and no chance of ruining your barrel's crown. Better yet, the green laser version is easily visible at quite a distance - and a reflective surface is included, in case you want to go ape and boresight at long range. Check out this…

It would make a dinner of filet mignon and the finest wine at a five star restaurant – twice a week at least – look like the bargain of the century. A rice lease. Training for the dog. Sixty bucks in gas every trip. Time away from work. More equipment. None of it mattered; there just wasn’t ever much on the strap. Is there an emoticon for feeling poor, broke? On the other hand, there aren’t enough stars in any restaurant’s rating to match…

    I know a girl who’s never had a bad hunt. Never been frustrated by the situation or disappointed with the results. Doesn’t complain when the walk is long or curse when others shoot too soon and too high at working flocks. She cherishes every moment on the pond, even when it’s slow or worse. There’s no ‘oh well, it beats working’ kind of rationalization; it’s all the same to her, all great. She’s my dog. And while I have respected, even been in awe of the knowledge and skills of many hunters that I’ve known or simply known of, it’s my…

  • Shooting Tips: How to Handle Rifle Recoil

    Alex Robinson
    18 Apr 2014 | 7:19 am
    Photo: Mitch Kezar/Windigo Images Accelerating a bullet from dead still to a couple thousand feet per second (or more) in the blink of an eye equals recoil. It’s Newton’s “equal and opposite reaction” to the bullet’s launch. Rifle weight and shape play into felt recoil, but they don’t change recoil’s kinetic energy, which is a function of the rifle’s mass and rearward velocity. And although bullet speed figures into energy calculation, its contribution to rifle “slap” does not. A bullet that exits fast dumps its energy fast. An…
  • 3 Drills to Improve Your Defensive Shooting Skills

    Alex Robinson
    11 Apr 2014 | 8:14 am
    Photo by Lee Thomas Kjos/The Raw Spirit When you head to the range to develop defensive shooting skills, keep in mind that it should be about more than hitting targets. Too often, people merely work on their marksmanship and not on their ability to apply shooting skills in the context of an unexpected life-or-death situation. To do that, you need to work your brain as much as your trigger finger when you drill. Defensive shooting is something that happens unexpectedly, but this is the opposite of how most people drill at the range. After all, if you knew you were going to be in a position in…
  • Personal Defense: Carry in Comfort With These 3 Holster Options

    Alex Robinson
    11 Apr 2014 | 7:50 am
    Photo by Mitch Kezar/Windigo Images The decision to carry a firearm for personal protection raises the critical question of how you plan to carry. Having a firearm on your person requires that you find a solution that fits your lifestyle and local ordinances, and meets basic criteria for comfort and ease of access. Keeping a weapon or two on my body became a daily reality in 2000, when I entered into law enforcement as a profession. Shortly after this, I began to experiment with different methods of carry, both on and off duty. I now carry pistols (plural) on me just about daily, and I have…
  • Using Laser Sights for Handguns

    Alex Robinson
    7 Apr 2014 | 10:49 am
    Photo courtesy of Crimson Trace Twenty years ago, laser sighting systems on handguns were expensive and unreliable novelty items. Today, thanks to technological advances, 
they are in common use among law enforcement and military personnel, as well as civilians who carry a handgun for personal protection. Laser sights operate by projecting a visible beam of light directly onto a target. However, they’re not magic wands—they have limitations. Under bright-sun conditions outdoors, the traditional red laser beam is not visible beyond a few feet. Newer green lasers are visible at…

In a discussion with “Late Night” host Seth Meyers, Costas said:“Let's make a bet, you and me. Let's say over the next five years we'll do a Google search. We'll have an independent party monitor it. You keep track of how many good and constructive things are associated with athletes having a gun, and I'll keep track of all the…

    Here’s a tip we feature every year or so, because it is something that costs nothing, yet can be very useful in the reloading process. With a simple, easy modification to a fired case, you can determine the length to lands in your rifle barrel. As long as you set the tension right, the measurements should be repeatable, and you’ve just saved yourself $31 — the price of a commercial OAL gauge. To achieve best accuracy with a rifle, you must control bullet seating depth very precisely, so all bullets end up in the same place relative to the entrance of the lands, every time.

  • Why Exotic Hunting is Best in Texas

    Rebecca Gill
    23 Feb 2014 | 4:17 am
    By Martha Gail-Moore The Texas hunting scene has long been some of the best in the States, but exotic animal hunting has steadily increased since the 1950s. Although exotic game animals were first brought to Texas in 1930, it was during the 1950s that really established the market for exotics as hunters became more interested in trophy hunting. An exotic animal is defined as any animal that was brought here from a foreign country. With the passage of the 2014 Omnibus Bill, three key antelope species will once again flourish on Texas hunting ranches as a result. The addax, scimitar-horned…

    Washington, D.C. – Safari Club International (SCI) is encouraged by the United States Fish and Wildlife (USFWS) decision today to revise the April 4, 2014, finding that suspended imports of elephants from Zimbabwe and Tanzania for 2014. Under the revision elephant trophies legally taken from Zimbabwe from January 1, 2014 until April 4, 2014 will be allowed to be imported.  The hunter will just need to be able to demonstrate to USFWS Office of Law Enforcement that the hunt occurred before that date in order to import the trophy. SCI is hopeful that this revision is just the first step in a…

    MISSOULA, Mont.--A massive bighorn sheep that died of natural causes and was later found by wildlife officials could be a new World’s Record, according to the Boone and Crockett Club. The ram was found in Alberta. The skull now is in possession of provincial officials and will be entered into Boone and Crockett records on behalf of the citizens of Alberta. “Many hunters are unaware that Boone and Crockett records include many found trophies,” said Richard Hale, chairman of the Club’s Big Game Records Committee. “The main reason we keep records is to document…

  • Turkey & Turkey Hunting Retro Minute: The Gobbler Named Pep

    Brian Lovett
    16 Apr 2014 | 12:50 pm
    Editor's note: In this recurring blog, editor Brian Lovett looks back on some of his most memorable hunts. This one occurred in early April 2000. Guide Brian Ross and I stood in the rain and strained our ears for something ... anything. But there was nothing. Alabama was silent. So we chatted a bit, and I told him how I'd just flown in from Texas, where I'd killed my first two Rio Grandes. "I guess it's back to reality," I said. Brian smiled. "You're about to hear some reality," he whispered. Needless to say, we didn't hurt the turkey population that day. The next morning brought fresh…

    Editor's note: In this recurring blog, editor Brian Lovett looks back at some of his most memorable hunts. This one occurred in April 2000. When you see a turkey hunting article with the word "Texas" in it, you immediately expect action. Just hang on a minute. I'd actually been to Texas twice previously. The first time, I should have killed two turkeys but missed one and blew my chance at another. Oh, and I'd also stepped right over a coiled rattler. The second trip was painfully slow for Texas, but again, I should have killed two birds. Instead, I spooked one and passed on what I thought was…

It’s a great all-around call that requires very little air, making it user friendly. The Imposter is a three-reed batwing cut. The top reed is standard latex, and the bottom two reeds are thin prophylactic latex. The latex combination and the ever-popular batwing cut make this a great all-around call.

  • Why Did Old-Time Hunters Call So Infrequently?

    Brian Lovett
    2 Apr 2014 | 12:19 pm
    My dad and grandfather tell me that hunters of yesteryear didn't call much. Is this true? Why? — Abe Stevenson, Plano, Texas It is true. And here's why, as stated by Jim Spencer in a recent article: Back in the gloomy, turkey-starved days of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, everybody thought turkeys were on a slick downhill road to extinction. Finding a gobbler track in the mud was an event, and if you went hunting and actually heard a turkey gobble, that constituted a successful hunt. Nobody realistically thought they’d actually kill one, and if the stars somehow aligned perfectly and the…

When you were born and raised in Wisconsin, there's no place like Alabama in March. What could be better? Hmm. How about sharing a turkey camp with a bunch of champion callers? My first trip of the Spring 2000 season had me at The Roost, near Aliceville, Ala. World champs Don Shipp and Larry Shockey guided for Roost owner George Mayfield, and then-Hunter's Specialties pro-staffers Matt Morrett and Alex Rutledge would be in camp later. What…

    18 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    The worst winter in more than a century, still lingering well into spring, has affected white-tailed deer and wildlife to the point that a hotly-debated supplemental feeding program was attempted to provide the animals some relief. The question is, will about $200,000 spent on the supplemental food distributed by volunteers help the deer or be a blip on the wildlife canvas? About 1,000 volunteers helped with the project spearheaded by the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association that began March 6. The distributed more than 528 tons of food throughout Minnesota. The effort ends this weekend,…

    When state agencies start talking about merging, especially those involving wildlife and fisheries, folks tend to take notice. A Pennsylvania Legislative Budget and Finance Committee has released a report about a merger between the state's Fish and Boat Commission and Game Commission. The last formal discussions were about 11 years ago. Nothing is finalized or in the works. “This certainly isn’t the first time that a merge has been studied, but nothing has happened up until this point,” Travis Lau, Press Secretary of the Pennsylvania Game Commission said in this report. “I am not…

  • Kukri History – Roots of the Iconic Gurkha Military Knife

    KB Admin
    17 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    The Kukri (Khukuri), pronounced koo-ka-ree (with stress on the first syllable), is derived from Sanskrit and means razor. This curved and broad-bladed knife resembling a machete is used primarily in close range hand-to-hand combat. It has been the national weapon of Nepal and a part of the soldier’s uniform since 1837 with the Gurkhas’ struggle for control of the Kathmandu valley. The Gurkha soldiers of the Nepalese army, well-known for their fierceness and fearlessness in combat, are trained with the Kukri until they are capable of wielding it as if it were an extension of their own…

    Don’t let the unassertive appearance of the all black Zero Tolerance ZT0100 fixed blade military knife fool you; it may very well be the only tactical knife worthy of the name. In addition to offering broad multi-tasking flexibility, the ZT0100 is equipped with one of the hardest and toughest blades you could possibly imagine. Kershaw, in collaboration with renowned designer Ken Onion, worked on creating this rare masterwork. Zero Tolerance knives are produced by KAI USA, a noted authority in knife manufacturing the world over (Kershaw is also a part of the KAI Group).

  • Best Kukri Knife – Comparison of 5 Top Rated Models

    KB Admin
    9 Mar 2014 | 9:20 pm
    Choosing one single kukri knife as the “best” is very subjective. Everyone has their own preferences and ideas of what makes a good knife. I know many users swear by and will only use authentic, traditional khukuris hand forged by a Kami imported straight from Nepal. These knives have been refined over generations and can be much cheaper than similar quality Kukri knives designed and produced elsewhere. Honestly, I prefer a high quality Westernized model Kukri because they often offer varied blade steels, handle materials other than wood/bone which provide more traction for a…
