Shot Placement: Thrill of the Hunt

Last fall I found myself sitting in a field of prickly Blue-Eyed grass using a young Foothill Pine for concealment; I’d hiked in while it was still dark to find a place to wait before the sun rose. During the pre-dawn hours the mountains were barely-visible dips and peaks around me and the dark gave […]

Shot Placement: Hogs, Hogs, Hogs

Hog hunting has enjoyed Most Popular Hunt status for some time now. And of course, when people think feral hogs they tend to think Texas. It’s certainly true the Lone Star state has more than its share of the destructive pests, but they’re in far more states than just the one. In honor of the […]

Wyoming To Hold First Grizzly Bear Hunt in Decades

In the fall of 2018, the first legal, scheduled grizzly bear hunt managed by a state government will be held in Wyoming. Much of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) is in the state of Wyoming. Grizzly bear/human conflicts have escalated with the expanding grizzly population. In 2017, of the 56 known and probable deaths of […]

Hunting Is What You Make of It

Without a doubt, the easiest hunts I’ve had were on public land. In Pennsylvania, I sat in a tree stand in a wooded area between a series of farms. A local friend of mine told me the strategy: “Just be quiet and everyone else making all their racket will drive the deer right to you.” And […]

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 […]

What About Your Wads? – Question of the Day

As a waterfowl hunter, part of my daily duck season routine includes picking up spent 12-gauge hulls. If we don’t stay on top of it, hundreds, sometimes thousands of them can become scattered across the properties we hunt throughout the course of a season. Unless they’re salvaged, they’re simply rubbish – every one of them […]

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 […]

Savage’s New Model 110 Hog Hunter

JWT was tromping out in Texas hill country last night popping piggies with a .44 1858 Colt black powder revolver. Quite a challenge which we understand he was more than up to. If he’d been looking for an easier go of it, a good choice might have been Savage’s new Model 110 Hog Hunter. He’d […]
