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...

Timney Drop-in Replacement Single-Stage Trigger for Ruger 10/22 Review

Wednesday April 23, 2014

Ruger has done some good stuff when it comes to guns, but most of the time, their triggers don't qualify. With the overwhelming popularity of certain Ruger firearms, such as the 10/22 rifle, there's certainly a place in the market for a good, reliable, crisp 10/22 trigger. Turns out, the folks at Timney have come up with a drop-in 10/22 trigger that is easy to install and can do a lot to improve your gun's shootability. Check it out.

Using a Rifle Sling

Tuesday April 22, 2014

A sling can make it much easier to carry a rifle or shotgun... but did you know that using a sling can help your shooting? Proper sling use can make it a lot faster and easier for you to shoulder your gun and get on target quickly, and allow you to make very steady and accurate shots without resting the gun. From which side of your body to carry the gun, to when it's a good idea to remove the sling and set it aside, this article (and its companion piece How to Use a Rifle Sling) takes a good look at slings and what they can do to help your shooting as well as your hunting.

Whitetail Deer Body Language

Monday April 21, 2014

When a deer is hit with rifle or bow, it may drop right where it stood. Often, though, it will react physically to the hit, and leave the scene. The way the animal reacts - and even the way it moves when it leaves - can tell you a lot about where that deer was hit. That information can be crucial when it comes to following up on your shot - should you wait, or follow immediately? Did the reaction give you confidence in a good solid hit, or was it marginal? I also take a look at the (false) myth that a deer that runs with its tail up has not been hit...

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.
