Zinke Announces Appointments to New Hunting and Shooting Sports Conservation Council

Earlier this week, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced the appointment of members to the Hunting and Shooting Sports Conservation Council, which was created on January 9, 2018. Former SEAL Zinke has repeatedly described himself as a “Teddy Roosevelt guy.” However, in contrast to Roosevelt’s conservation efforts, Zinke has been actively rolling back public […]

Intuit QuickBooks Severs Ties with Gunsite Academy, Reverses Tens of Thousands in Credit Card Charges. Because Guns

There’s been yet another incident of ignorance merging with a desire to undermine our Second Amendment rights resulting in financial attack on a prominent industry company. This time it’s one I consider the equivalent of church for gun owners: Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona. Gunsite, which was founded by the late Col. Jeff Cooper in […]

Shot Placement: The Ethical Truth About High-Fence Hunting

Hunting is defined as the determined search for or pursuit of wild animals, so it’s logical that Merriam-Webster defines a hunter as “one that searches for something.” In fact, that phrase resonates for many hunters. We search for our game, we rattle, we call, we wait, and still we often trudge home empty-handed. Hunting takes […]

Shot Placement: We Have the (Processed) Meat

Meals in 2018 are a simple process. Pick your poison – fast food, sit-down restaurant, ready-made meals at the grocery store – and you’re golden. Food today comes in outrageously simplistic packages from pre-cut, pre-peeled, pre-packaged apples to sliced-and-diced, single-serving pickles. Whatever you want is available, effort-free. This includes meat, which can be purchased as […]

Shot Placement: Come at Me, Bro

“I hope your dogs eat your face.” “You deserve to be raped. I want to be the one to do it.” “I’m going to hunt your family like you hunted that deer.” These and other gems have become nauseatingly familiar to me. Apparently some people hunt and shoot without ever being on the receiving end […]

I Am The NRA (And You Should Be, Too)

Yesterday I slid my renewed NRA membership card into my wallet. As the red-white-and-blue rectangle of plastic snugged up against my NSSF press card and ragged old Hunter’s Education card, it hit me: 15+ years of membership, and only now am I forced to defend my decision to support the NRA. Over 15 years and […]

Shot Placement: I’m Offended

Full disclosure: I had something else in mind for this week’s column. But then I went scrolling through the posts on Outside Magazine’s Facebook page and my eye was captured by something enviable (a bull elk). No, it wasn’t in the op-ed hammered out by some guy who boasted of his collection of eight firearms […]
