A Mauling on my Antelope Hunt

Posted by on in Hunting

So I was out hunting for an antelope yesterday, any antelope. I had an either sex license and wasn't trophy hunting. I was meat hunting, so a small buck or doe would work nicely. My neighbor Rick was with me.

Traveling with Firearms

Posted by on in Hunting

Hunting season is here in many areas, and various forms of transportation will be used to get to the hunt location. Most people will travel in their own personal vehicle. While in might seem simple, transporting firearms can be complicated, since states have different rules. Check the laws before you hit the road to be sure you're complying with them.

My Take on Long Distance Shooting

Posted by on in Hunting

Kenny Jarrett stepped away from the bench and nodded. "Any time," he said. I followed his instructions and squeezed the trigger. Amazingly, the bullet hit the target. I figured it was pure luck. Two more bullets followed, and I was astounded to see a three inch group. I figured I'd be lucky to simply hit the three by three foot sheet of wood the target was attached to. The range was 600 yards. That happened about 10 years ago, at Kenny's personal range in South Carolina. The only reason I shot that group was because I was using Kenny's rifle, and he coached me as to exactly where to hold on the target, considering the wind direction and distance. Kenny has been making quality rifle for more than 30 years, and, in my opinion, is the master of long range shooting. Many years ago, his rifles were coined the "Beanfield Rifles" because they could shoot accurately across a beanfield, which, I expect, is a considerable distance. I believe Jim Carmichel, former Shooting Editor of Outdoor Life magazine, coined that name.

Game Laws That Should Be Scrapped

Posted by on in Hunting

After more than 50 years of hunting, I've become aware of all sorts of wildlife regulations, the majority of them sound, but some that are unreasonable and, in my opinion, unfair. I'm referring to laws that require the hunter to make a field evaluation measurement of the quarry, insuring that it exceeds the minimum requirements. Practically all of these measurements involve antlers or horns. I believe that asking a hunter to make a judgement call on an animal in the field is unjust. I have plenty of examples.

No Revenge On The Attack Turkeys

Posted by on in Hunting

Spring turkey season here in northwest Wyoming is winding down, and I'm not a happy camper. I had high hopes of causing the demise of one of the gobblers that attacked me in my driveway last year. Evidently that will not happen.
