Eat Jackrabbits

Can you eat jackrabbits? The short answer is Yes. However, if you ask most American hunters if you can eat a jackrabbit, the answers are lots of variants of No. The most common responses are: “You can eat almost anything, doesn’t mean it will taste good.” “I’d rather eat boot leather.” “They are stringy and […]

Legal Lead Ammo

The California statewide ban on lead ammo is now in effect.  Sure condors and other critters will continue to choke on old wheel balancing weights, trash, and lead fishing weights, but that’s because the lead free movement isn’t really about the environment, its about gun control.

Bear Hunting Woes

The deer and bear hunting season started, and we’ve failed so far. Sure we kicked up a few good sized does, and if it was an antlerless hunt I’d have tagged out with my un-scoped CZ 557 Carbine 270 Rifle pretty quickly. But its not antlerless, and it will take a few more hours and […]

His small cabin sits on quite a few acres, backs up to BLM land, and is ideal habitat for Chukars. Just look at the picture below and judge for yourself.

Afternoon Grouse Hunting With Video

I took a break from web work to see if I couldn’t bag a grouse and maybe clear my mind. I’ve been pretty distracted lately. I lost my dog and best friend to cancer a couple of days ago, and its sort of the thing dominating my head space. Anyway, I usually take my 10/22 […]

Elk Hunting, Meat, and Idiots

I’ve been out elk hunting with my girlfriend. She has a few tags to fill, and so I’ve been supporting her effort to do that. It’s the reason that its been a while since I posted anything. She filled her elk tag, as you can see from the feature photo of two beautiful backstraps. We butchered it, and we’ve been busy processing, grinding, sausage making, etc.
