  1. Stalking Deer In The UK

    Stalking Deer In The UK by "browndog" Red Stag Following a brief note from Len asking me to describe deer hunting ‘in my neck of the woods’, I have taken a few moments to do so. Whilst nothing I’ll describe here will live up to the long-range aspirations or achievements of others on this site, I hope it will give some feel for (my experience of) UK stalking. I’ll start with a very brief outline of the UK stalking environment and then move on to describe a couple of typical Highland summer...
  2. Dall Sheep Hunt - 2007

    Dall Sheep Hunt - 2007 By Michael Eichele This story begins in the same way as many of my other hunting stories - with the year(s) prior. It was near the end of the season for 2006. I had finally mustered up the courage to hike over a very long ways away from my normal hunting grounds. I had seen a big ram a few weeks prior at the head of a far off drainage but hadn’t seen him for a couple of weeks. In fact I had seen him in the same spot for several seasons including his last sub legal...
  3. Long Range Tricks And Toys

    Long Range Tricks And Toys By Ian McMurchy Much emphasis is placed on high performance rifles, state-of-the-art scopes and the latest magnum cartridge design when the discussion of long range hunting comes up in gun-shops and hunting camps. That equipment is essential. But there is another level of gear - and some specialized techniques - that play a vital role in making long shots. I am talking about the little things that make a big difference, like rock-steady shooting rests and the...
  4. F-Class Competition As Training For The Hunt

    F-Class Competition As Training For The Hunt By Jim Collier "The witch was in full force, I'd danced with her awhile and she lied to me and led me everywhere but the X-ring" unknown author The antelope was about 800 yards away and the wind was gusting between 18 and 25 miles per hour. The 115 grain Berger missed so badly that not a hair was cut. The next antelope was about 950 yards away and the bullet flew so wide it barley even landed within the same county. The third antelope was about...
  5. Alaska Dream Hunt

    Alaska Dream Hunt By Ian McMurchy I just returned from a wonderful hunt in Alaska. I understand that Alaska might not be the first choice for a dream hunt for some readers. Matter of fact I hope to experience the Yukon and NWT before I hang-up my hunting boots. Right now Alaska’s my dream hunting location. I would like to share the realities of such a hunt. So let’s say you have made up your mind to go on a BIG hunt and have the finances in place. First, a person has to get over a sort of...
  6. Do-It Yourself Western Hunting

    Do-It-Yourself Western Hunt Quest for a place to hunt By Jim Brown A lot of "how-to's" on western hunting deal with the logistics of the hunt . Equipment, transportation, caliber choice, physical condition and so on are all very important considerations and without attention to these details the hunt could be one you would rather forget. Here the focus will be on sources to tap for relatively inexpensive hunts on private land. How would it sound to gain access to 50 square miles of ranch...
  7. Gear For Dall Sheep Backpack Hunting

    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." I woke up from my 5 minute nap when one of the only two tent pegs keeping my tent from tumbling down the mountain pulled out of the ground. My heart about stopped when my body weight pulled the tent I was sleeping in down the steep slope. I bolted out of that tent like shot out of a cannon, heart pounding, breathing hard from the adrenaline and...
