Jim and the Oryx

I’d been invited to West Texas to hunt oryx with an online friend named Chacho Gonzales.

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 »

Squirrel Hunting Specialist

Crow Hunting

I was thinking about my hunting plans, and what I have to look forward to as the seasons kick in. So far this year I’ve been out several times for rabbits, squirrels, pest birds (pigeons, Eurasian doves and starlings), coyote, and all kinds of game over in SA. I’ll be hitting the small game all … Continue reading »

Out with the Boss!

I was out a couple times this weekend, getting some practice with my guns before we leave for the Eastern Cape. This weekend I focused on the FX Boss, which is going to be my gun for small game up to predators, and maybe the mini-antelope. As you probably know, this is an upsized version … Continue reading »

Lamping: Turn on the nightlight

I know that installment two of the squirrel hunting piece is owed, but I’m going to take a little side trip before wrapping that topic up. I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking about lights and lighting systems used for night hunting, which isn’t as common in the States, but is used by airgun hunters … Continue reading »

I was thinking about my airgunning adventures for the upcoming year, and decided I’m going for the tree squirrel grandslam; fox squirrel in Indiana, … Continue reading »

Pest Control and Airguns

It is probably safe to say that most of the Airguns that are purchased domestically would be for plinking and target shooting. But the guns purchased expressly for harvesting animals, are most frequently used to shoot vermin and pest species. This can range from shooting the squirrel or starling raiding the backyard bird feeder to … Continue reading »
