NSSF Calls Foul on USFWS Director’s Parting Shot on Traditional Ammo

With one-day left of President Obama’s term, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe acted without dialogue or public comment. Was it one more instance of a public official going rogue and imposing a personal agenda, or finishing the business he was appointed to do? The timing certainly seems suspect, but it is the details that really matter. Here is the full analysis and release from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

Now is the Time to Up Your Goose Game — Decoys

As budding waterfowlers in the 1980s, my brother and I were gifted a dozen goose shells. We were certainly ill equipped by today’s standards, but it didn’t matter much. The Canada goose season was short and the daily bag limits were low. Operating from the middle of the then perpetually not doing well Southern James Bay Population’s wintering area, we just didn’t have much opportunity to truly grind it out and earn our stripes as goose hunters.

Dove hunting isn’t complicated, so don’t make it that way!

Those who enjoy a hunting lifestyle are fortunate. Because hunting isn’t always easy—especially for the millions of Americans looking to get into the sport. Competition for hunting ground, a significant financial investment in gear, and time spent on hunter education, scouting, and shooting practice are just a few of the barriers to hunting participation. Thankfully, some types of hunting (Doves) are simpler than others.

Range Report: Lucid M7 Red Dot Sight

Red dot sights are not only increasingly popular, they have made strides in affordability, reliability, and accuracy. The cheap red dot sights are useful for plinking and getting the feel for a red dot optic. The mid level—over $200, but far less than $1,000—is useful for 3-gun competition and home defense. The Lucid M7 fits solidly in this category.

Hunting season is around the corner, so now is the time to get out, start proofing your loads, and sighting in your rifle. At the moment of truth, your entire season will likely boil down to a single, perfectly-placed shot or you’ll be sipping tag soup for the next 9 months. If you are looking for the latest in ammunition offerings, look no further than for big game this fall. Granted, it is not out today, but it will be soon.
