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...

Air Venturi Samyang Dragon Claw Big Bore 50 Caliber Air Rifle Review

Thursday April 24, 2014

This interesting big bore air rifle sure isn't anything like my old BB gun! It's a well-made, heavy-duty rifle that slings big fat half-inch (.50 caliber) projectiles downrange - sometimes with impressive accuracy. I first got interested in big bore air rifles when I started hearing about hunting hogs with air guns, and really wanted to give that a try. Read the review to learn how that turned out, and to find out whether this airgun is for you.

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...
