Jackrabbits

Back on track!

There’s been a lot going on with the new year; the SHOT Show has come and gone, I’ve had a lot of writing work to get caught up on as well as picking up some new publications, and getting ready for more hunts this year than I’ve ever had in a 12 month period. Also … 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 »

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 »

Getting time to hunt??

I was thinking about my airgun hunts this year, those after the Christmas holidays when things start to slow down. There were a few stand outs that I really enjoyed, with a few more to come during the summer before the real season starts back up and my winter hunts kick in. A lot of … Continue reading »

Texas Night Hunt

I booked a hunt through Pete Reyes on his property about 80 miles south of San Antonio, with the plan to hunt Javalina with my .308 centerfire and bring a selection of airguns for coyote, bobcat, raccoons, hogs and whatever small stuff came my way. I would have liked to hunt the javalina with an … Continue reading »

Airgun Hunting the USA

We have a fairly large community of hunters in the United States, and are favored with a lot of game and plentiful land to hunt on. 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 »

Practice Before Hitting the Field

I do a lot of practicing with my airguns before, during, and after hunting seasons. A good portion of this is after work in my basement range at 15-20 yards, and you may wonder what value that has. If I was just shooting off a bench, not much. But I find that using field positions; … Continue reading »
