Who are Hunters?

I took a number of does over the years, to help fill my freezer.

Just who are hunters, anyhow? Strange, bloodthirsty backwoods hillbillies? Or maybe just regular folks? Hmmm...

Bushnell Powersync SolarWrap 400 Portable Solar Battery/Charger Review

Thursday April 17, 2014

This portable battery/charger boasts the most durable solar panel I've ever seen, and it's compact as well. It has helped me extend hunts by allowing me to top off my phone while in the woods, and I've even managed to successfully charge my phone to 100% via solar power. But it's not all fun and games with this product, which seems somewhat less robust than I hoped... and takes longer to charge than advertised. Read the review to learn more.

Montana X-Treme Gun Oil and Bore Solvent Review

Wednesday April 16, 2014

I had this stuff for a while before I wrote this review. I used it with some success, and with some failure. I think the chemicals are pretty good, which is the only reason I gave them four stars... but the packaging leaves a lot to be desired. And be sure to never use the solvent unless the area is VERY well-ventilated... it's powerful stuff. But it's made in USA, and I always like that. Read the review for more info on these made-in-USA gun care products.

How Ammunition and Firearms Cartridges are Named - What Makes a 30-06 a 30-06?

Tuesday April 15, 2014

When it comes to naming cartridges, there are no rules. Sometimes they don't even make sense. This often stems from the fact that the folks who develop new rounds are mavericks who don't easily conform. Other factors include changing standards... at one time in the 1800s, caliber plus black powder charge was the norm (45-70, 32-20, 44-40, etc). Along came smokeless powder, and that trend was of course upset. Here are some examples of cartridge names, what they mean, and how they vary.

Should You Always Hunt With a Fouled Bore?

Monday April 14, 2014

I've hunted for a long time and have made a few great shots along with a bunch of good ones, and I've never babied my rifle's bore. In general, I believe you should always hunt with a fouled rifle bore. How fouled is too fouled? Well, if you eyeball down your bore and see hunks and chunks, you need to swamp it out. Knock out the big pieces and give it a light coat of oil (I like to do the same after toting a rifle in the rain). Read on to learn more...
