STAY COOL – YOU GOT THIS


No Comments

I can’t lie. I missed. I shot and missed and missed again because I was a teenager, a relatively new deer hunter, and I got excited. Really excited! What new shooter hasn’t?

CHOOSING THE BEST CHOKE FOR YOUR GAME


No Comments

With screw-in chokes and multi-barrel over/unders or even side-by-side shotguns, bird hunters have an opportunity to choose the best constriction for the shot they are shooting and game they are hunting. For close shots on birds such as released quail or other tight sitting upland game that present close shots, a more open choke such […]
