Shotgunning Coyotes: Getting Started by Skip Knowles

SHOTGUNNING COYOTES: GETTING STARTED My brother in law Kenny is a knucklehead. He never listens to me. That may be because he is slightly smart and more talented, but he should still at least feign respect, since I am the one who set him up with my bow hunter sister Nicole, and their marriage of… Read more »

HEVI-Shot Pistol Ammo Test

HEVI-SHOT PISTOL AMMO is Heavy Duty! By Skip Knowles HEVI SHOT’s new line of 9 mm ammo turned in a stellar performance at the range in recent weeks with a wide variety of both handguns and shooters holding them.

It seems like yesterday I was scouting the turkey woods and now it’s already Father’s Day!  Instead of bemoaning the fact that 2015 is half over, I am ecstatic that waterfowl season is almost here!

When the field detection device failed to… Read more »

Unfortunately I didn’t get prepared for teal season (yes, I do Christmas shop on Christmas Eve at 4:00) and found myself wondering why I seem to shoot so many shells at those aerial acrobats but never… Read more »

Memories that last a lifetime

When you think about waterfowl hunting what memory comes to mind? Was it the first time someone took you on your first flooded timber hunt? Or the first time you took a youth out and they shot their first bird? Maybe your first banded bird? Mine isn’t my first hunt, my first band or my best shot.

HEVI-Shot® Magnum Blend is the best

HEVI-Shot® Magnum Blend 3 1/2″, HEVI-Shot® Turkey .662 choke, and a Remington 1187. I paced the shot off at 59 referee steps, no joke, I have 2 witnesses who saw it all. All I can say is , wow what a charge. Don’t pay attention to the 1200 fps, whatever. It lit that bird up… Read more »
