Ground squirrels

Prairie Dogg’n!

With spring in full swing, it’s time for my first prairie dog trip of the year! I’ve been out in Denver for my sons graduation from grad school, one more kid to go and I’m tuition free! While visiting I’ve been like a hunting dog made to sit and watch a parade of birds ……. … Continue reading »

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 »

The Wildcat Went Prairie Dog Hunting

About two months ago I received the FX Wildcat in .25 caliber, which I’ve been target shooting at ranges from 20-100 yards, and getting very good results which I’ve commented on from time to time. I really like this bullpup more than any other I’ve shot; the stock is light, ergonomic and compact, but it’s … 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 »

In addition, there are few restrictions on gun ownership and the price of firearms is fairly low. As a result, airguns have remained relatively unknown here as they have not … Continue reading »

The Growth of Airgun Hunting

I was working on an article over the weekend, and was thinking back over my perspective of the growth of airgun hunting in North America. In the 15 years I’ve been back in the States (after almost 20 years abroad), I have seen change. When I came home I thought I was about the only … Continue reading »

Out in South Dakota on a Prairie Dog Hunt

Unfortunately I was late getting out for P-dogs this season and worried the populations would be down and the dogs very wary.
