Small Game Hunting

Airgun hunting small game; squirrel, rabbit, and game birds

Aberts Down for Squirrel Hunting Grand Slam!

I was at the EBR in Phoenix over the weekend, and though I didn’t shoot (because of scheduling conflicts) enjoyed my time there. Even when you don’t shoot it’s great to see old friends and meet new ones! But since I wasn’t shooting, I had time to break away for a quick hunt. I’ve written … Continue reading »

This little Piggy Meets My Compatto

I was back out in Central Texas on a hog hunt last week, and had four days, so also planned to get in some small game and predator hunting. On the first morning I decided to go after rabbits with one of my all time favorite small game guns, the Brocock Compatto, since hog hunting … 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 »

Squirrel Season’s Around the Corner!!

As we prepare to roll into the fall months, I find myself spending a lot more time afield scouting the areas I’ll hunt when deer season opens. Patterning deer activity and deciding where to set up my stand helps my success rate of course, but I also use the time hunting America’s favorite small game, … Continue reading »

Prairie Dogs, plinking, and target practice…. summers going well!

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. But performance-wise it can stand with the best full sized … Continue reading »

Choice of Caliber

After all these years of hunting, shooting with, and writing about Airguns, the most frequent question I get is “what caliber is best”? The answer I give is probably not the crisp and clear response that is hoped for, because there are many variables that come into play. Personal preference aside; it depends on the … Continue reading »

Mini Expeditions With Your Airgun!

Besides airgun hunting, I like to fish, hike, bike, kayak and camp. To optimize my field time, I’ve been combining these various activities, so I’ll load up my kayak with ultralight camping gear, an air rifle, and take off on an overnighter. This lets me get further into the back country or access areas closed … Continue reading »
