Between Predators and Prairie Dogs versus Big Game and Game Birds, There’s Always Bow Fishing

Weekend, April 21-22, 2018 — Back when there was nothing else to do between Spring and Fall except mowing the lawn or searching vole trails for hidden ‘treasures’ left where winter’s snows melted – What! You’ve never heard of voles or the trails…

Going to Extremes For Longbeards

Weekend, April 14-15, 2018 — By now spring turkey hunting is in full swing throughout most of the states.  You’ve watched plenty of turkey hunting videos, checked your gear, plotted where you’re going to hunt and brushed up on your calling techniques. What else to do?  You declare yourself ready. And you are,…

Down Range.  WAY Down Range!

Weekend, April 7-8, 2018 — We were never addicted to shooting more than 200 yards in “the old days,” whenever that was. But hunting etiquette pretty much dictated that you don’t shoot at an animal much farther beyond that for fear of either fatally wounding it resulting in its escape to parts unknown…

Wild Wyoming

Easter Weekend, March 31-April 1, 2018 — This weekend is more or less reserved for peace, quiet, and for the ourdoorsman, the tranquility of stars in the night sky, treks through the snowy high country without gun or bow, and walks along sea or lake shore retrospecting on the hunting memories of past seasons. It is…

Hogging Free Speech

Friday, March 30, 2018 – To a degree, Americans have the right to free speech, according to the constitution. Likewise, Americans have the right to self-protection. But a snot-nosed kid from Florida rejected by several colleges of higher learning in even liberal California, took it upon himself to demonstrate to all others that free speech really isn’t free and, somewhat…

Too Many Turkeys Creating Traffic Problems

Weekend, March 24-25 — I’ve already confessed to not being a turkey hunter. If you’re one of the few who missed the memo, let’s just say that my initial foray into turkey hunting came – and quickly went – when I shot a turkey with an arrow… which passed through the bird and killed a second turkey, as well. I…

Loaded For Bear

Weekend, March 17-18, 2018 — There’s a place in Wyoming that attracts black bears every Spring when they emerge from winter hibernation hungry and anxious for anything to eat that will begin to fill bellies that lay empty from the first snow ‘till almost the last. The place? My back yard.

Seeing wildlife is not unusual in Wyoming. They’re everywhere…

Gun Controllers Want Voter Registration For High Schoolers

Monday, March 12, 2018 — Gun controllers are no longer interested in gun control.  They are interested in being activist protesters holding demonstrations reminiscent of Ferguson, MO, Charlottesville, VA and Baltimore. Now comes the student march on Washington, DC on March 24 with preludes in other cities today and Wednesday.  Of those, the current protests will be media magnets…

Tip-Toe Through the Turkeys

Weekend, March 10-11, 2018 – Yes, that may sound facetious. but by the time tulips start popping up, I’ve already had my fill of Spring turkey hunting and I’m beginning to gear up for trout fly fishing. But getting turkeys out of the way begins not with hunting them but scouting them. By now,…

Gun Controllers Discover the Social Media Mother Lode

Thursday, March 8, 2018 — The NRA has five million members. Everytown For Gun Safety has four million members. Both numbers are likely pipe dreams since neither group allows audits of their membership rolls.

The Mechanics Of Everyday Shooting

WEEKEND, Marc 3-4, 2018 — One way or another, new shooters will make mistakes. It’s inherent in humans to have to learn: how to crawl, how to walk, how to speak, how to do any action that gives us independence. Shooting a gun is no different. Yet, every day new shooters come along thinking that…

Time To Say Hello To Your Favorite Ghost Gun

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 – Hot on the heels of several big box outdoor stores doing the deep dive cha-cha, the magnanimous national sporting goods chain, Dick’s, has just opened the doors to Tom’s, Nick’s, and Harry’s. Smaller in volume than Dick’s, they are nonetheless doubtlessly pumping fists this morning with a half-whispered “YES!” on reading the news about Dick’s…

Weekend, Feb. 17-18, 2018 – Every year about this time, when winter snows blanket much of the upper U.S., it’s time for the dogs of winter.

Miles Not Yards: The Fascination of Shooting Beyond Your Means

Weekend, Feb. 3-4, 2018 — Way back in the ancient days of rifles in your rear window gun racks and braggarts who bored with exploits of bagging a deer at 500 yards, I used to tell my hunting clients, “Don’t try it!” The emphasis then was on humanely bagging a buck with a well-placed shot at 150 yards,…
