Crossbow Regulations Across North America

Crossbow hunting is one of the fastest growing sectors of the hunting sports. Whether you are a firearm hunter looking to expand your season or looking for a new challenge to rekindle an old passion; a bowhunter who cannot draw a vertical bow due to age or injury or simply enjoy shooting crossbows, the tide is on the rise and states are responding by opening or enhancing hunting opportunities for horizontal bows.

Four Must Have Optics for 2013

Given the rush at the gun counter, it is no surprise that optics is a hot category as well. Going through my notes, I have selected four more optics from the 2013 SHOT Show that you really need to consider before making your next purchase.

Hoyt Spyder 30

Hoyt continues its dominating presence in 2013 with the introduction of the Spyder line, which includes the Spyder 30, Spyder 34 and Spyder Turbo. The Spyder 30 is short, stout and deadly in the field. It is also the subject of Cheaper Than Dirt’s latest archery review.

Gizmos & Gadgets — Turkey Decoys

Turkey hunting is challenging to put it kindly, but more addictive than any other drug nature has ever produced. One of the most important factors to successfully hunting a turkey is to get the turkey in range for a shot of course. Nothing does that better than the right decoy set up.

Democrat Wimp

Will Democrats Sink the Second Amendment or be Scuttled by it?

Often times, when writing about gun rights, I have stated that it is not a Democrat or Republican issue. And while that may be true when speaking about the voting populace, the everyday Joe, it does not seem to be the case in government. For weeks now, all I have seen are headlines of gun control legislation passing this committee or that, a state legislature here or there and always down party lines. While there are exceptions, the voting record makes it clear. The Democratic Party is no friend of the Second Amendment.

5 Steps to Tackling Target Panic

Target panic is more than a problem it’s a disease. It can strike anytime, anywhere and anyone. If you haven’t been bit the target panic bug yet, your time is coming.

Tackling a Turkey Jinx — Broadheads

Turkeys are bowhunting’s ultimate challenge. In fact, I have had better luck shooting pheasant out of the air with my bow than I have turkeys on the ground. That can be contributed to my turkey jinx more than anything, but just because Tommy Three Toes continually vexes me does not mean I won’t be out this Spring looking to sink an arrow in his side.

Simmons Predator Quest

Sight Solutions for 2013

Given the rate products are flying off the shelves at Cheaper Than Dirt! and elsewhere around the country, it’s not worth being too picky in deciding which products deserve flavor of the week treatment, so I am not going to even try. I have already played with a whole goodie bag full of new offerings this year and will roll out a handful of new products each week, so enjoy and keep checking back!

USA Shooting Success

USA Shooting Needs Your Help—Promote the Shooting Sports

In April 1995 the United States Olympic Committee chartered USA Shooting, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, as the National Governing Body for the sport of shooting. The organization implements and sanctions events at the local, state, regional and national levels. It also manages programs for developing shooting athletes from grassroots to Olympic medals.

Equality of Gun Ownership and the Second Amendment Foundation

It does not matter where in the country you live. If your state does not offer concealed carry, you need to get involved. If your state does support your right to self defense and concealed carry, you need to get involved. There is strength in numbers and we need to all come together. The Second Amendment Foundation is leading the way, but we cannot passively sit back and let the other guy do all of the work. The following is the statement from the Second Amendment Foundation.
