A Couple Notes From South Africa

I just returned home from South Africa …… the flight seems soooo much longer on the way home than the trip over, I was worn out (we hunted hard) and I wanted to get home to my family, and delays only made it seem that much longer. I did get a chance to stop in … Continue reading »

Weather was hard on us, but all the guys bagged around 50 dogs per day each, and the whole event … Continue reading »

Prepping the Renegade for Hunting Season!

I spent the weekend shooting the Daystate Renegade, the second bullpup design out of this great airgun manufacturing powerhouse. The first was the Daystate Pulsar, a beautiful and technology packed bullpup.
