With spring in full swing, it’s time for my first prairie dog trip of the year! I’ve been out in Denver for my sons graduation from grad school, one more kid to go and I’m tuition free! While visiting I’ve been like a hunting dog made to sit and watch a parade of birds ……. … Continue reading »

Spring Around the Bend!

We’re still in winter….. Deep in winter in some of the country…… But spring isn’t too far off.

Binoculars and the Airgun Hunter

I had an interesting question put to me recently; If Airgun hunting is a close range shooting application, why do you always talk about taking binoculars as part of your kit? The answer is that there are several reasons, some are general and some are more specific to my aging eyes! The first thing to … 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.

South Dakota Coyote!

A couple months ago I drove the 6 hours to my buddy Brents place in South Dakota, to shoot prairie dogs with a number of new rifles, and thought I’d bring along a couple of big bores to go after coyotes if time permitted. I love this place, you never know what you’ll see, mule … 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 »

Whats in a trophy?

Like a lot of airgun hunters using powerful adult oriented Airguns. I came to the sport with a lifetime of hunting experience. I was using firearms for small game, mule deer, blacktail deer, feral hogs, bird hunting and predators in my native California for many years before moving to Airguns. As a matter of fact, … Continue reading »
