    13 Survival Items No Hunter Should Be Without - 21

    As we get ready for hunting season, it's time to consider the survival gear that we will be taking along with us. And as we wander off the beaten path, we should be carrying the equipment to handle the most common emergencies that we could face in the field.

    1) If you need daily heart medicine, blood pressure pills, insulin or any other vital meds, bring an extra supply of them on all your outdoor trips. Also bring any event-related medications like asthma inhalers in case of an attack, or epinephrine pens if you are allergic to bee stings or certain foods.

    2) A fully charged cell phone or 2-way radio in a waterproof container could be your ticket home.

    3) Wear appropriate clothing and outer wear. Skip the cotton in most conditions, unless you are trying to activate your life insurance policy. [ Read Full Post ]

    Ben Roethlisberger—So Maybe I Was Wrong - 6


    It was just a few short weeks after the Pittsburgh Steelers had won the Super Bowl that I interviewed the game's most valuable player Ben Roethlisberger for Outdoor Life's new magazine feature, "5 Minutes With..."

    The back page series of articles features celebrities who hunt and fish and the questions are an attempt to delve a bit into reasons why the outdoors are an important part of their lives. I don't fancy myself a celebrity chaser, but I'd be lying if I didn't acknowledge that I got a charge out of interviewing folks such as Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry--he called me back four times as I kept losing my cell-phone signal--who struck me as being more of a regular guy than a guitar hero. Or, most recently, Captain Sig Hansen from the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch who conversed with me as if we were sitting around deer camp drinking a cold beer. There have been lots of other pretty cool interviews: Fox News' Chris Wallace admitted to being a newcomer to hunting and I thought that refreshing; NASCAR's Bobby Labonte seemed genuine when he explained that it...

    Time To Make The Donuts - 20


    Spring turkey seasons have opened down south in places like Florida, Alabama, Georgia and elsewhere, with buddies in my broad turkey-hunting circle sharing tales of gobblers with hens, and the frustration that brings, but also 100% success. Hey, that's turkey hunting.

    C.J. Davis just checked in from South Carolina, where the limit is 5 gobblers statewide, no more than 2 per day. He reported that he just got back from hunting the fabled Low Country. “Found plenty of gobbling turkeys, but they were henned-up and generally shut up by 8:30 leaving me to ponder life and admire the beauty of the Savannah River swamp. Two others in our party did better with one killing on the last day while another missed.”

    Sierra Club: We Support Hunting But... - 17

    In recent years The Sierra Club, the nation’s largest environmental membership organization, has gone to great lengths to appear supportive of hunting, fishing and scientific wildlife management in an attempt to distance itself from more recognizable—and radical—anti-hunting organizations.

    It’s now a supporting member of a national professional organization of hunting and fishing writers and features biographies of its “conservation leaders” who hunt and fish on its Web site. [ Read Full Post ]

    The Cowboy Code - 22

    On Wednesday, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal signed legislation adopting an official Wyoming state code based on the tenets known in the West as “Cowboy Ethics.”

    Although the historic Code of the West was unwritten, cowboys, trappers, hunters and others in the U.S. frontier knew it was about maintaining honesty, integrity and courage in a wide-open region where the affects of government barely reached and laws were not always enforced.

    Aimpoint's Big Bet - 11

    How happy are you with your riflescope?

    Before you answer, think about the last couple of years. Have you been jammed up on a shot opportunity because your variable-power scope was on the highest setting? Were you not able to find a close-in deer because you only saw hair at 12x? [ Read Full Post ]

    What's Hot, What's Not - 6

    After spending a couple days here in Vegas looking at new products it is clear that this is not going to be a huge year for new guns. No, instead the story is going to be ammunition. The themes? Value and performance. 

    For value there is a new line of ammunition that Weatherby is introducing that will cost significantly less than what we currently pay to shoot rifles in Weatherby chamberings. Shooters who own either a .257 Wby. or a .300 Wby. will soon be able to purchase a box of ammunition that doesn’t require a second mortgage. [ Read Full Post ]
