A Pair of Brocock Rifles on Squirrel Patrol

Trip to Virginia I’ve made some good friends and airgun hunting buddies down in Virginia over the last 8 years, and try to get down every year to hunt with them. This year I was also meeting up with Rossi Moreale and our cameramen to film segments for the American Airgunner, but had arrived a … Continue reading »

Daylight Raccoon – FX Wildcat Scores

I had gotten up before daybreak and driven to a local farm where I have permission to hunt for predators and small game. My intention was to spend two hours, then go home shower before heading to my office for a busy day. I arrived at a friends farm after a 20 minute drive, parked … Continue reading »

Another Favorite: The Daystate Huntsman!

I am getting a lot of squirrel hunting in this year, having lined up four different farms that are a 15-45 minute drive from my house. These spots don’t get much small game pressure, and the populations of gray and fox squirrels are good. At two of these properties I’ve only seen gray squirrels, at … Continue reading »

Grays and Fox squirrel up next!

I took off last week on the next leg of my squirrel grand slam quest, to Southern Minnesota after grays squirrel and fox squirrel. A friend has a large tract of wooded land he uses for hunting, primarily deer and turkey. He hasn’t been out in a while, but has given me carte blanche access, … Continue reading »

Aberts Down for Squirrel Hunting Grand Slam!

I was at the EBR in Phoenix over the weekend, and though I didn’t shoot (because of scheduling conflicts) enjoyed my time there. Even when you don’t shoot it’s great to see old friends and meet new ones! But since I wasn’t shooting, I had time to break away for a quick hunt. I’ve written … Continue reading »

This little Piggy Meets My Compatto

I was back out in Central Texas on a hog hunt last week, and had four days, so also planned to get in some small game and predator hunting. On the first morning I decided to go after rabbits with one of my all time favorite small game guns, the Brocock Compatto, since hog hunting … Continue reading »

Warthogs and Airguns

While cleaning up my archives, I found this article written about three years ago for one of the hunting magazines, and realized I never submitted it! This was from the hunt where I had Kip and a couple AOA friends along with me to the Eastern Cape in South Africa. Better late than never, right!?! I’d been in … Continue reading »

Prairie Dogs, plinking, and target practice…. summers going well!

Hope you’re all having a great summer so far! I’ve been on the run, since summer started I’ve been to Scotland, Australia, Florida, and California on business. But I’ve managed to get in some hunting as well! I was in Texas a couple times on a hog and small game hunts, was in South Dakota … Continue reading »

Traveling for a Hunt

I’m on my way to California for my spring turkey hunt. In the last two days, I have seen probably over a hundred gobblers and hens within 10 miles of my house. It seems you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting these birds as they prepare for their spring rituals and hunters get ready … Continue reading »

Compatto goes to Texas

The Compatto is a semi-bullpup rifle from the merged design team of Brococks and Daystate, that is loaded with new technology. If you’ve read this blog for long, you know I have a marked preference for compact hunting guns, and the Compatto is certainly compact. But performance-wise it can stand with the best full sized … Continue reading »
