Planning a Hunting Road Trip

One of the questions I get a lot, is how do you find places to hunt. While it’s true that in recent years I’ve been invited on a lot of hunts, it is equally true that I am always on the lookout for new opportunities. And I try to find opportunities that anyone can replicate … 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 »

Squirrel Season’s Around the Corner!!

As we prepare to roll into the fall months, I find myself spending a lot more time afield scouting the areas I’ll hunt when deer season opens. Patterning deer activity and deciding where to set up my stand helps my success rate of course, but I also use the time hunting America’s favorite small game, … 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 »

Binoculars and the Airgun Hunter

I had an interesting question put to me recently; If Airgun hunting is a close range shooting application, why do you always talk about taking binoculars as part of your kit? The answer is that there are several reasons, some are general and some are more specific to my aging eyes! The first thing to … Continue reading »

South Dakota Coyote!

A couple months ago I drove the 6 hours to my buddy Brents place in South Dakota, to shoot prairie dogs with a number of new rifles, and thought I’d bring along a couple of big bores to go after coyotes if time permitted. I love this place, you never know what you’ll see, mule … Continue reading »

From My Hunting Journal: Kentucky Squirrel Hunt

Hunting squirrels in spring is a great way to end the winter hiatus, and this trip is another out of my journal from a few years back.

From My Hunting Journal: A Mojave Rabbit Hunt

Here’s an entry I pulled out of my log book from a hunt I did awhile back. I’d time before the SHOT Show and decided to use it on a jackrabbit hunt out in a corner of the Mojave desert I’d been tromping through most of my life. Initially I roamed this area primarily to … Continue reading »

Squirrel Hunting With The FX Royale

The last couple of years I have more used more guns and been on more hunting trips than I could write about, so this month I want to reach back to a gun I used a lot and really enjoyed taking into the field. One of the great things about writing is that I get to try … Continue reading »
