It is possible to hunt hogs in several states, but Texas is my favorite because of the varied hunting terrains, and … Continue reading »

In recent years, many states have crafted airgun friendly regulations for small game hunting with an airgun. There has also been a trend, but moving slower, to add regs on the book to allow big game, and there are currently several states where an airgun hunter can take a deer.

Jim and the Oryx

I’d been invited to West Texas to hunt oryx with an online friend named Chacho Gonzales. I get a lot of invites and can’t do them all, but this one intrigued me because there are only three exotics in Texas I have a burning desire to take with an air rifle; the blackbuck, the aoudad, … Continue reading »

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 »
