Daystate

Texas Bobcat Hunt

I wrapped up at my office early, walked out of the building, and jumped in my car for the half hour drive to the airport. I’d been spending just about every spare minute of the last few weeks acclimating to my new job and moving my family from the cold weather of Indiana, to the … Continue reading »

The beginning of this month was the squirrel season opener up in my norther neck of the woods, and I laid down my fishing rods (especially tenkara) and started hunting again.

Struck Out on Turkey…. Getting Ready for Round II…..

I’m on my way home after a tough hunt, that didn’t exactly turn out the way I’d hoped. I was in Northern California after turkey. There are easier ways and harder ways to get gobblers out here, you can hunt the vineyards, farms, and suburban areas….. and this is both fun and productive, or you … 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. And while I loved shooting that gun (and it shot very well), my taste run more towards less complex technology for the field…. The … Continue reading »

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 »

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 »

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 »
