Warthogs and Airguns

While cleaning up my archives, I found this article written about three years ago for one of the hunting magazines, and realized I never submitted it! This was from the hunt where I had Kip and a couple AOA friends along with me to the Eastern Cape in South Africa. Better late than never, right!?! I’d been in … Continue reading »

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 »

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 »

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 »

From My Hunting Journal: A Mojave Rabbit Hunt

Here’s an entry I pulled out of my log book from a hunt I did awhile back. I’d time before the SHOT Show and decided to use it on a jackrabbit hunt out in a corner of the Mojave desert I’d been tromping through most of my life. Initially I roamed this area primarily to … Continue reading »

Squirrel Hunting With The FX Royale

The last couple of years I have more used more guns and been on more hunting trips than I could write about, so this month I want to reach back to a gun I used a lot and really enjoyed taking into the field. One of the great things about writing is that I get to try … Continue reading »

Airgun Hunting’s Ubiquitous Game: Tree Squirrels

The gray, red, Aberts, and fox squirrels are all very cautious and elusive animals.  To consistently take squirrels requires an ability to stalk, a great deal of patience, and knowledge of the squirrels behavior.  I do a fair bit of deer hunting and find squirrel hunting excellent practice for bigger game. I also use my airgun … Continue reading »

Another Short Hunt

Was out squirrel hunting today with the Brocock Specialist, love this little gun but more about this later. So far this year has been great for squirrel hunting up here in my new home of Minnesota, as I mentioned in the last post I’ve found a lot of public land to hunt, bushytail populations are … 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 »

Texas Varmint Hunt!

My hunting has been a bit slow over the last couple months, I’ve been traveling a lot for work, doing some family trips (spent this weekend at the Fields Museum in Chicago….love that place!), and thought I jump into my field journal and share a hunt from seasons past. A couple summers back I was invited on … Continue reading »
