August 19, 2014

Proper calling is one of the most important parts of squirrel hunting.

Communicating with game is one of the absolute joys of hunting. For squirrel hunters, calling can fire up a forest and increase fun and success, just as it can for turkey, deer, and elk hunters. Calling adds versatility to your hunting arsenal and allows for more efficient and effective hunting. ESG_BrownellsEssentialsKits_PR_400_300...

Dogs Gone By: On the Front Line in the War Against Prairie Dogs

July 21, 2014

The battlefield upon which the author's battle against prairie dogs was fought: Silver Spur Ranch in Encampment, Wyoming.

We awoke at dawn. Most of us were slightly nervous, but energized by the certainty of impending combat. I doubt the enemy ever sleeps. They’re too busy digging tunnel networks. We’d been the ones to choose the field of battle---the Silver Spur Ranch in Encampment, Wyoming. Encampment is an eerily appropriate name given the enemy’s permanent dug-in positions. Our foe has a great propaganda machine, although I have absolutely no idea how they can afford such a thing. As a result, most people know them as those cute, adorable, and cuddly...

Video: Hunting Rabbits with a Tomahawk

June 26, 2014

Stuck-Voodoo

When you think of a tomahawk, the first thing that comes to mind likely won't be hunting with one. There is a small community of devoted tomahawk hunters who harvest anything from muskrats to squirrels and rabbits. Experienced knife or spear hunters may even try one against a feral hog, although it can certainly be more dangerous. In the video below, competitive shooter and Top Shot winner Dustin Ellermann apparently manages to take down a cottontail while demonstrating a Cold Steel Norse tomahawk to students. Ellermann makes the sidearm throw look almost...

Tonight is a Good Night for Frogs

June 26, 2014

Back in the old days, frog gigging was one of the few activities a 16-year-old Southern boy could participate in without causing trouble.

He sat on the front porch rocking, listening; the distinguishing remarks of the bullfrog singing from the pond in front of his cabin. It was almost ethereal when the crickets clicked to the rhythm and the lightning bugs danced in step. He thought of the male’s low and distinguished, “want some, want some.” And the female’s higher, “come n’ get it, come n’ get it.” Arthur Farrell laughed. It was a joke he’d heard ages ago. Back through those ages he remembered the hot summer nights in the South when frog gigging was one of the few activities a 16-year-old boy could...

Plague Spreads Through South Dakota’s Prairie Dog Population

May 19, 2014

Prairie dogs are especially vulnerable to plague due to their densely-packed underground colonies.

Hunters traveling to South Dakota this year may be hard-pressed to see a prairie dog, especially in the southwest parts of the state. The cause is sylvatic plague, and while the plague has been active in the state since as early as 2004, it has now spread as far north as the Fort Pierre National Grassland. The Associated Press reported that the disease is taking a heavy toll on colonies across South Dakota's central prairie. “In the last few years I’ve seen some...

Judge Halts Coyote Hunting in Red Wolf Territory

May 14, 2014

A side-by-side comparison of a red wolf (left) and a coyote (right).

United States District Judge Terrence Boyle recently granted an injunction to halt coyote hunting across 1.7 million acres of land in North Carolina's coastal counties. According to The Charlotte Observer, Boyle made the decision to protect the estimated 100 red wolves living in the area, which can be mistaken for coyotes. The territory is believed to be the home of the last remaining wild population of red wolves in the world, and it also happens to host an increasing...

Video: Hunters Bag Coyote with 1,860-yard Shot

May 8, 2014

In normal circumstances, .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua are relatively big and expensive calibers to be taking coyotes with. For the two hunters in the video below, the additional cost of a heavier, powerful cartridge is a small price to pay for long-range performance. The hunters make two shots on a coyote a little over a mile away---roughly 1,860 yards. According to the video's description, the shots were made simultaneously, although it was the .338 that struck and killed the 'yote. http://youtu.be/6q2ZMTZxHxo...
