8 Mistakes Rookie Coyote Hunters Make

REALTREE.COM From the Archives – Eichler, South, Zepp. They make it look so easy. No matter how many times you watch the coyote-killing team on video, you just can’t figure out how to duplicate their success. While those guys seem to bring coyotes running to the gun every time they make a rabbit squeal, you’ve only managed to call in a few crows and one stray dog looking for an…

Certified wildlife biologist and retired regional…

NY – Hunting – Kuiu Sets Its Sights on High-end Hunting Enthusiasts

WWD.COM April 14, 2017 – Jason Hairston doesn’t fit the mold of the typical apparel executive. First off, he’s a former linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos who retired in 1996 after persistent problems from a broken neck put an end to his professional sports career.

Nat’l – Hunting – High cost of big game hunting

JAMESTOWN SUN.COM March 31, 2017 – Of the couple hundred big game hunts I have embarked upon on this fortunate continent, only about 15 were guided, and most of those were hunts where a guide was required by law (i.e., grizzly bears in British Columbia, Dall and Stone sheep in B.C., the Yukon and Northwest Territories.)
