Hunting Guns

Out on a hog hunt!

Sitting on a plane right now flying back home from Texas, where I attended the airgun show put together by friend and colleague Tom Gaylord. As soon as the one day event was over, Rossi Morreale and I jumped in a truck with our camera crew from American Airgunner and headed off on a multitude-day … Continue reading »

Gearing up for a springer hunt!

As I mentioned in some recent posts here, Facebook, YouTube, and a couple magazine articles, most of my hunting recently has been with PCP’s but this year I intended to get out more with my springers. Don’t get me wrong, I love my PCP’s and they will make up the bulk of my hunting gear. … 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 »

Prepping the Compatto!

I’ll be leaving at the end of the week for a few hunts spread over a dozen days all around the great state of Texas. I’ll be doing hunts for a black buck, hogs, predators, and rabbits using several new rifles. The gun I’ve selected for my small game hunt is the Brocock Compatto, a compact little … Continue reading »

Choice of Caliber

After all these years of hunting, shooting with, and writing about Airguns, the most frequent question I get is “what caliber is best”? The answer I give is probably not the crisp and clear response that is hoped for, because there are many variables that come into play. Personal preference aside; it depends on the … Continue reading »

Mini Expeditions With Your Airgun!

Besides airgun hunting, I like to fish, hike, bike, kayak and camp. To optimize my field time, I’ve been combining these various activities, so I’ll load up my kayak with ultralight camping gear, an air rifle, and take off on an overnighter. This lets me get further into the back country or access areas closed … Continue reading »

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 »

Getting My Airguns Ready to Hunt

This has been a busy week for me; I received a couple new big bores that I’ll be talking about in coming months, and started doing range work. I’ll save the details for later, but it’s hard to imagine the out of the box performance being delivered by todays production big bores! Just a few … Continue reading »
