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 »

Raccoon in the Morning

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.

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.
