Shooting sticks

I was in Puerto Rico hunting iguanas a few days ago, and brought a fair bit of gear with me. But I forgot a key piece of equipment, my shooting sticks.

Thoughts on Competition and the Extreme Bench Rest

I’m getting packed up and preparing to leave on an airgunning hog hunt down in Texas for a few days. It’s going to be a lot of fun, getting out in the field for a quarry and in a place where modern big bore airgun hunting really took off. Being out in the field, and … 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.

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. I’d had an invite to hunt a big ranch property in the Western part of South Dakota, so loaded up my (mountain of) gear and made the 7 hour drive. I got in … Continue reading »
