    Ear Protection When Hunting

    I didn’t wear ear protection when I was in my early shooting career, late 60’s/early ‘70’s, nor in a noisy industrial. Hearing protection wasn’t stress than as now! During the early years of shooting, noisy industry, and racing motorcycles damaged my hearing......you can’t regain it, and like...

    For the Hunting Handloader

    A question for those that use their handloads for hunting......like maybe someone doesn’t! 🤪 It’s probably overkill or paranoia or perhaps both! I grew-up in an region of the country where 85% humidity is quite low and they average 60 to 70 inches rain per year. I always worried about the...

    Sorta Gear Related

    If a shooting range “can” be classified as gear! 🤔 We’ve had a 300 yard range with a backstop at our home for about 20 years.

Many cannot appreciate the temperature extremes we can enjoy. This is only late October, and our home is only at 4200 feet...

    For The Handgun Hunter

    As many of us venture into the mountains chasing Mule Deer or Elk, one of the bounties bestowed upon us is the opportunity to put a grouse in the pot. It doesn’t get much better than enjoying a meal of freshly caught Brookies or a nice grouse or two. With a rifle, head shots on a grouse...

    For the Big Bore Guys

    I got a Marlin Guide Gun (45-70) about 6 years ago, and a bullet mold for casting bullets. Far too much work around the place, and other issues prevented me from doing anything with my new, now old gun! Two years ago, finally got some bullets cast. That was were the process stopped, until the...
