February 3, 2014

D'oh! Dropped the shotgun in the snow? It happens to all of us. Make sure you clean and thaw it out before using it!

Man, it’s cold. Seems to be a common topic of discussion this year, doesn’t it? If you’re like me, hearing about the polar vortex is getting old, and if one more person says anything about global warming, you just might slap them silly. The good news is that there is still hunting to be done and it doesn’t matter how cold it is, you’re going. Hopefully your gun still works. Keeping your gun, be it a rifle, pistol, or a shotgun, working properly when the mercury drops below the freezing mark isn’t all that difficult.

Michigan Muzzleloader Success

December 16, 2013

Robinson Outdoor Products' Jason Herbert harvested this Michigan nine-point on a recent muzzleloader hunt.

Finally it's my turn to write about a deer I killed!
