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.

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 »

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.

On to the Rockchucks!

In the blog this week, I’ll carry on with the airgunning adventure started last week. I am spending more time in Arizona for a couple reasons; first I have always loved this state; from the pine covered mountains up north to what I consider the most beautiful desert in the world, the unique Sonoran with … Continue reading »

The Masked Bandit; Pest Control or Predator Hunting

A lot of raccoons are shot with airguns while raiding trashcans, pillaging the hen house, or making a general nuisance of themselves, and in fact this is an application for which airguns excel. A well placed pellet from higher powered .22 at reasonable range is strong medicine for these tenacious and tough animals. And raccoon pest control often takes … Continue reading »

Hunting Handguns

After several years of hunting with firearms using conventional long guns, I started to drift more towards handguns using them for deer and hog hunting in my native Californian deserts and coastal hills.

The Urban Hunter

The use of airguns for urban and suburban small game hunting and pest control is one of my favorite topics to write about. A key factor for the rise in popularity of these guns in North America is that increasing urbanization has resulted in less land available for traditional hunting pursuits. If you spend time around more built up … Continue reading »
