The Pet Delicacy

Weekend, Nov. 18-19, 2017 – We know it’s difficult to get by imagining a pet rabbit for dinner. After all, many children who tug at Mom’s apron strings to buy a bunny around Easter wouldn’t think of eating it. Yet, rabbits are in many quarters a dinner delicacy. Rather than explaining our personal bunny-ventures in the outdoors, here’s some culinary…

Mixed Bag Mid-Season Hunting

Weekend, November 11-12, 2017 – This weekend we honor our military veterans. Saturday, primarily, is Veteran’s Day, and what better way to spend it with some aging old military buddies than hunting South Dakota for pheasants. Midway through the 2017 hunting season, all the major species are available: big game, small game, waterfowl, upland birds, and even some migratory…

Nat’l – New Product – Product Review:  Carson Binoculars

PR NET November 6, 2017  – Several  years ago during a 20-year stretch as editor of a major firearms trade magazine, I had the opportunity to  examine a dozen of the world’s best known binoculars side by side. Most of those brand names were already familiar to hunters.  Suffice to say that the “finalists” in the review boiled down to just six names, four of which were on the…

Hunting: The Alternative Solution To High Fat, Low Energy

Weekend, Nov. 4-5, 2017 – We all know that it takes effort to hunt for our supper. Yes, there’s the supermarket and the quagmire of fast food joints, but a steady diet of groceries and gunk may not keep you in shape – at least the shape needed –…

It Seems Impossible But Sometimes There Are Just Days Like This

Weekend, October 28-29, 2017 – Pheasant hunters have been spoiled. In the great grasslands of the Midwest, especially, where pheasants thrive because habitat was once abundant, hunters never ever failed to get their fill of harvesting some of what seemed like the overpopulation of those gaudy looking…

IL – Gun Crime – Why (almost) no one is charged with gun trafficking in Illinois

ABA JOURNAL, October 19, 2017 – To understand why it’s so hard to stop the flow of guns across state lines and into cities like Chicago, you have to start with a simple, well-established fact: Firearms are legal products. 

Goats and Mules. Good Eatin’ This Time of Year 

Weekend, October 14-15, 2017 — Gotcha with that headline, didn’t I? But it’s true. Pronghorn Antelope and Rocky Mountain Mule Deer are things that make dinner special this time of year. Extra special, that is, because of all the pre-season scouting and long hours of work and walking you put in just to get a chance at bringing home…

Dogs and Ducks

Weekend, October 7-8, 2017 – We’ve hunted over several dogs, some the same, others of different species.  All had their good points and, if they were trained correctly, they were mostly all good. The ones that weren’t were those that were either trained too late to make them special or were too early to begin with. After several seasons…

Is 3D Printing Airsoft Guns a Reality?

By Michael Keller — As an airsoft passionate and a 3D printing aficionado, I can’t complain with regards to the wonderful technological times we’re living. I am at the perfect crossroad between technology and airsoft popularity!

With the technological development that happened in the last decade, 3D printers stopped being the Unicorn of technology and became readily available to domestic users. The prices are just right (and still dropping) and…

Bloomberg Viewing California As The Template For National Gun Control

GUNPROPLUS.COM July 25, 2017 – Michael Bloomberg is hoping to convince the GOP that local control is better than national, i.e., federal, control. Translated into gun control-speak, he’s tired of losing the national battle over gun rights with the NRA. The failure of Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns in cities across America was unable to stop gun trafficking from southern to northern states. He then founded Everytown For Gun Safety and…
