The follow-up shot
Sports Afield    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Craig Boddington is pretty sure he's made just about every field-shooting mistake you can think of. "I've misread wind, angles and even range. I've pulled the stupid trick of looking through the scope and forgetting the barrel was a bit lower. I launched a bullet into a berm ten feet in front of me, which didn't in the least impress the animal I was shooting at. And sometimes I've just plain missed." The biggest mistake Boddington's made is what African professional hunters call "admiring the shot." More

Roy and Sawyer Smith hike north from the E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area office on a paved road. Nearly 70 years ago, this road and others were part of the vast Camp Adair Army cantonment, where four divisions trained for World War II battles in Europe. On this foggy September morning, it is not Army camouflage we see but a lot of blaze orange caps and vests worn by young hunters and their dads, moms, brothers and friends. More

Antler rattling tips: How to call in big bucks during the rut
Field & Stream    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Rattling is most productive during the rut — when bucks are more aggressive — in areas where the buck-to-doe ratio is close to even. In areas with a high doe count, bucks have far less competition and therefore have less need to challenge another buck for breeding rights. More

A dream is realized on a hunt for desert bighorn sheep in Arizona. In the dim light before dawn, Dale Towell strained to identify the features of the opposite hillside: black boulders providing sharp contrast with yellow grasses, cholla cactus and scattered Palo Verde trees — the state tree of Arizona.

Hunting season is off and running
The Courier    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Despite a lack of rain making for some dry hunting conditions, the muzzle-loading deer season opened with a record number of hunters entering the woods. Modern technology has made muzzle-loading a much more pleasant experience and created a tremendous amount of growth in both the number of hunters and in the sports popularity. More

In the land of the dove
Sports Afield    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As the rising sun balanced on the horizon, they came in waves ... in torrents — doves hurtling toward the millions of sunflowers looking for breakfast. Thumbing shells into the already hot Beretta semiauto, John Taylor soon gave up loading the magazine and shoved in only single rounds as frantically as one of Custer's cavalrymen. More

Hunter uses bow to bag his first elk
Albany Democrat-Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Steve Owen grew up hunting. "I loved doing it," the Albany, N.Y. resident says. "I've been hunting ducks since I was little, big game since high school." In October 2009, he "rattled in a buck" with rattling antlers, shooting it from about 30 yards away. "I thought if I can do it with a rifle, I might as well do it with a bow. If you're going to be in that close anyway, you might as well use a bow." More
