Sat, 05/11/2019 - 07:21

How a shotgun feels when it’s thrown up on your shoulder is typically our first and most important impression. However that first impression can sometimes be wrong, I’ve had several shotguns that felt really good but never delivered when it was time to hit the targets.

Tikka T1X – Rimfire Revolution

Thu, 05/09/2019 - 22:34

This week, I got my hands on a rifle for review that was a long time in the making. The Tikka T1X, first announced at SHOT Show 2018, has finally hit the shelves. Now despite my own giddiness about rimfires, I know that they aren’t the most popular reviews we publish. But hear me out on this one, I think you are really going to dig it. Why, pray tell, have I been anxiously awaiting a bolt action in 17 HMR?

Alaskan Mountain Goat Hunt: Cold, Wet and Exhausted

Mon, 05/06/2019 - 19:31

As all good stories begin, it all started when someone threw out a crazy Idea: "Let's go shoot a mountain goat in Alaska." said Ben jokingly, yet serious. I don't think he ever expected Don to agree. From this moment on, these two men were hanging on for a ride that they were just barely prepared for mentally, physically and emotionally.

Reviewed: Bushnell Prime Spotting Scope

Mon, 05/06/2019 - 17:43

Bushnell has been all over the map in recent years, in terms of levels of products. They have spent a lot of time solidifying their place at the table on high-end products, like the XRS and HDMR, both contenders in military circles. Then they will turn around and introduce sub $200 scopes, such as the Engage series. It can get a bit, well, confusing. So I am very happy with what seems to be a recent change to the product lines.

Summer Project: Make Your Own Waterfowl Layout Boat

Mon, 05/06/2019 - 17:33

Concealment is the key to duck hunting. This is especially true when they get wary and have been dodging shot for a few months. My first introduction to the layout boat idea was many years ago and I still use them today. In my younger days though, money was a little tighter so two other friends and I decided to make three boats one summer in my garage.

Cougar, mountain lion, puma, catamount, painter -- whatever you want to call it, if you get a text from a buddy who guides hunts for Felix concolor that reads, "Do you want a mtn lion backstrap?" you should answer affirmatively, and then beg for the hams, too.
