Just a quick note out to all my hunting/gun toting buddies this morning. I received an email from GunsAmerica this morning about a kids movie out on the market right now. The movie is called "The Iron Giant". Here's the email I received giving me a heads up on the movie.
You lucky dawgs in the Southern Tier of New York will now be able to take a black bear with the same tag you use to hunt deer. This is the first time in history that the Lower Tier of New York has been open for black bear hunting.
I think it's safe to say that most of us have had to deal with Buck Fever at one time or another. But as most of us know, it's how you deal with buck fever that will decide whether or not you go home with a deer or not.
If you've been putting off applying for a Texas Public Land Controlled Hunt Permit, you time is running out. Actually, if you planned on archery hunting, the deadline was August 4th for the Texas Public Land Archery Permits.
Gun hunters for Texas Whitetails, Mule Deer and Exotics have until either September 4th or the 18th, depending on which one you apply for.
With the rising cost of fuel these days, I can imagine there are a lot of deer hunters who will be looking for ways to cut their deer hunting cost. Maybe this isn't the year you buy that new rifle or bow. Perhaps that new set of Camouflage clothes will have to wait. Or maybe you're looking to get involved in deer hunting but it looks too expensive. I'm going to tell you that it doesn't have to be expensive and you can get started deer hunting for less than $1000 and even less than $500 if you pick your gear correctly.
First off, before I get started ranting, I want to say a big ole CONGRATULATIONS to the U.S. Women's Shooting Olympian, Corey Cogdell for bringing home the Bronze Metal in the Womens Trap event.
Now, back to ranting.
You know what is missing in the Olympics nearly every year? More Medal winners in the Archery and Shooting events!
If you're getting long in the tooth like me, chances are your first deer gun was chambered in 30-30 Winchester. Chances are also good that the Winchester 30-30 you had was either a Winchester Model 94 or a Marlin 336 (or one of the many knockoffs).
I have to admit, as I get older, it's gets harder and harder to think about scouting for deer when it's 100 degrees outside. I'm usually thinking of my next fishing trip or how high my electric bill will be! I'll bet that many of you are the same way, whether you're old or young!
Funny, I was thinking about these two shows and the difference between Survivorman and Man vs Wild when I saw someone mentioned Les Stroud and Bear Grylls in the comment section of the Alaska Experiment post.
I like both Survivorman and Man vs Wild.
I'm not a big TV watcher. I prefer doing things on the Computer or reading a book. I feel like both the Computer and TV have pulled us away from the joys of reading. But anyhow, I don't want to get started on that rant. What I wanted to ask is how many of you have seen this show called "The Alaska Experiment"? If there is one thing that can suck me to a TV it's a show about Alaska.« go back — keep looking »
