Prairie Dogg’n!

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 »

Prepping the Renegade for Hunting Season!

I spent the weekend shooting the Daystate Renegade, the second bullpup design out of this great airgun manufacturing powerhouse. The first was the Daystate Pulsar, a beautiful and technology packed bullpup. And while I loved shooting that gun (and it shot very well), my taste run more towards less complex technology for the field…. The … Continue reading »

My favorite destinations Part I

One of the perks of my role as an Airgun writer is that I get to travel to a lot of different places to hunt. One of the questions I get fairly regularly is where do I like to go and where would I recommend others give a try. To this end I’ve picked my … Continue reading »

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 »

From My Hunting Journal: Kentucky Squirrel Hunt

Hunting squirrels in spring is a great way to end the winter hiatus, and this trip is another out of my journal from a few years back. I was living in Indiana, and hunting many of the midwestern states. The first squirrel season in my region, and a place I always liked going to was … Continue reading »

Shooting sticks

I was in Puerto Rico hunting iguanas a few days ago, and brought a fair bit of gear with me. But I forgot a key piece of equipment, my shooting sticks. I made some and got by, but made me think about this critical yet often times neglected article of gear. I think that shooting … Continue reading »

Practice Before Hitting the Field

I do a lot of practicing with my airguns before, during, and after hunting seasons. A good portion of this is after work in my basement range at 15-20 yards, and you may wonder what value that has. If I was just shooting off a bench, not much. But I find that using field positions; … Continue reading »

Out in South Dakota on a Prairie Dog Hunt

Unfortunately I was late getting out for P-dogs this season and worried the populations would be down and the dogs very wary. I’d had an invite to hunt a big ranch property in the Western part of South Dakota, so loaded up my (mountain of) gear and made the 7 hour drive. I got in … Continue reading »

Shooting Positions: Standing shots in the field

One of the requests I’ve gotten lately is to write a bit about the shooting techniques I employ when in the field hunting. I’m going to do so, but preface it with a disclaimer: I am not a target shooter, outside of a brief stint in the army national guard I haven’t had formal training, … Continue reading »
