  1. Nightforce SHV 5-20x56 Rifle Scope With New Exposed Elevation Turret

    My introduction to Nightforce optics happened only several years ago as I first became addicted to long range hunting. I had recently found LongRangeHunting.com and delved into a world of information about long range shooting and hunting that I could have only dreamed of. At that point I had never even heard of Nightforce, and at the time local stores didn't even carry the brand.
  2. 7 Days in Eastern Cape South Africa

    My dad Floyd and my stepmother Janice had been to South Africa twice, and upon their return the second time in 2014 they said they were going back again in 2016. I had always thought that when my dad started going to Africa, it would be very special for me to join him on an African safari. So I told him that I definitely would be going with him and my stepmother in 2016. The toughest part...
  3. Prone Shooting Position

    Prone Shooting Position By Jim See Prone shooting from the bipod should be our most accurate and precise position, yet some of us suffer in this area. I still see the biggest mistakes in this position at rifle matches from some well rounded and experienced shooters. Most of these issues can be easily fixed by the individual with a little forethought and awareness in their practice. First I’m...
  4. Selecting Varmint Calibers

    Selecting Varmint Calibers By Jared Bauder As I dust off my guns from the winter infestation of cold and snow, I think about the gun options for the varmint season. Phrases like, “speed kills” and “going out with a bang” usually come to mind.

    Athabasca Bear Hunt By Dave King My long time friend Charly Culbertson arranged for his girlfriend and him to go on a Black Bear hunt with his friend Ron Nemetchek. Due to last minute medical problems, Charly’s girlfriend couldn’t go and I was given the opportunity to tag along on what turned out to be a great time and wonderful hunt.

  6. THE GREAT WESTERN HUNT

    The Great Western Hunt By Jim Collier Free At last! As the pages on the calendar slowly peeled away and I approached 30 years of civil service, I begin to think of journeying back out to the Rocky Mountains and finishing my quest for a 1,000 yard bull elk kill. While I already had a long range rifle, I wanted to build one “last great elk rifle”. I began searching the internet for gun parts...

    Things I Learned Shooting Crop Damage Deer By Dave King When I was first approached to shoot crop damage deer I was elated, I initially thought this was an opportunity to hunt whitetail deer year-round but a bit later I discover it was a double edged sword. At first I began the task by the only means possible, I used the knowledge I had acquired during my many years of hunting deer, this held...
  9. WAPITI HUNTING IN NEW ZEALAND

    WAPITI HUNTING IN NEW ZEALAND By Greg Duley My annual pilgrimage to the Fiordland Mountains hunting wapiti (elk) during the bugle took me to the Loch Burn block in April this year. I had been guiding deer hunters for the previous month and was really looking forward to a couple of weeks of hunting and exploring on my own account. Hunting in this wilderness area requires extreme fitness and...

    Gear For Dall Sheep Backpack Hunting By Michael Eichele "This was supposed to be my first backpack sheep hunt and I swore it would be my last."
