Texas Bobcat Hunt

I wrapped up at my office early, walked out of the building, and jumped in my car for the half hour drive to the airport. I’d been spending just about every spare minute of the last few weeks acclimating to my new job and moving my family from the cold weather of Indiana, to the … 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 »

It started as a squirrel hunt on a very early fall morning a few years back. I was hunting my friends place in central Indiana, but when I rolled up the drive, my friend came out to meet me. This was unusual, I hunted the property often but almost never saw anybody when I arrived … 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.
