Pest Control

Calling Raccoons!

Many years ago I had an experience that opened my eyes to a new hunting opportunity that I’d not realized existed.

It’s been said that everything in the Texas brushland wants to sting, stab, or bite you, and there’s some truth to that folksy adage.

Pest Control with the Bantam

For this pest control session there were several requirements for the rifle I’d use: it had to be light and compact in anticipation of shooting in confined spaces, it had to have a high shot count as there would be many shot opportunities in such a target rich environment, and for the same reason I … Continue reading »

I just got back from a 9 day hunt in Texas, and had a great time! Started out at a ranch that was a couple hours north of Fort Worth, where I took a nice blackbuck and a fallow buck during filming for American Airgunner. Then I headed out to a ranch in West Texas, … Continue reading »

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.
