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 »

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 »

Getting Results with a Springer!

Last week I spoke about avian pest control with springers, this week I will talk a bit more about how you can improve your results when hunting with a springer. As mentioned, I took time while shooting in Arizona recently to leave the PCP’s behind and take a number of springers out to hunt. Many of us have shifted … Continue reading »

Avian Pest Shoot with Springers

I had a couple good days at the end of last week with my buddy Scott D and a few others doing a dove shoot with a a selection of different guns. One thing I really enjoyed was one full day in which we only used spring piston guns. First time I’d done that in … 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 »

Urban Hunting Revisited

I have spoken in the past about the fact that airgun hunting is gaining popularity in the US, in part because of increasing urbanization which has resulted in less land available for traditional hunting pursuits. If you look in fields, small woods, areas around railway tracks and industrial buildings you’ll find these areas often become … Continue reading »

Airgun Optics

When heading off on an airgun hunt, regardless of the type of game, the type of gun being used, or even the conditions I expect to encounter, my gun will almost always be equipped with a scope. There are several reasons for this; as the acuity of my eyesight diminishes with age a scope helps me … 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 »
