Air Gun Test: 13 Standard Caliber, Big-Bore, and Spring-Piston Rifles Reviewed | Outdoor Life

Most Americans of my generation have a common experience with airguns—a BB gun introduced us to the basics of shooting, followed by a multi-pump pellet rifle on our way to a “real” gun. Once we got those rimfires and shotguns, that was it for the airguns. But across much of the world, airguns are not the pre-game warmup; they are the main event. In societies where firearm ownership is severely restricted, airgun technology has evolved to fill the void.

Outside of the U.S., an enthusiastic airgunning culture has given rise to a technologically ambitious sporting gun arms race.

In North America, fewer regulatory restr….

Feral Hogs Running Wild In Arkansas; Causing Problems For Farmers

ARKANSAS COUNTY, Ark. – Feral hogs cause an estimated $1 billion dollars in crop damage alone in the U.S. every year. The hogs have also increased in population in Arkansas causing major headaches for farmers.

There are hundreds of animals who call the Natural State home, but farmers say one animal has overstayed it’s welcome.

“They are a whole lot like that Tasmanian devil that use to be on Looney Tunes. They just tear everything up,” Davis said.

Hunting the wild hog


April 9, 2018

By Dan Chapman, Public Affairs Specialist

Elrod lives alone on this 40-square mile barrier island below Savannah. He works when he wants — daybreak, late afternoon, middle of the night. His office is the salt marshes, sandy beaches, maritime forests and cypress swamps that make up one of Georgia’s most beautiful sea islands.

“I never would’ve imagined that this would be my job,” Elrod says, trundling through Ossabaw’s swampy midsection in a scruffy Chevy truck with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle riding shotgun. “But I sure do enjoy doing it.”

He is, officially, a “hog control technician” for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources — the only full-time, government-paid wild boar hunter in the South. The specialness of his job owes to the rapaciousness of the hogs. They’re a nasty, eat-everything, invasive species that are alien to Ossabaw and run roughshod over flora and fauna

County coyote population appears to be steady

  • Oct 4, 2018


A coyote spotted early Aug. 24 in the southern part of Beaver Township was killed later in the day by the Pennsylvania Game Commission after an officer observed its unusually fearless behavior. The coyote is believed to be one of this year’s pups, weighing about 20 pounds instead of the average adult weight of 50 to 60 pounds. It’s not unusual for coyotes or foxes to be out during the day, but animal control officers or local police should be notified if an animal shows signs of mental or physical abnormality.

COYOTE HUNTING TIPS: HOW TO HUNT COYOTES WITH ELECTRONIC & REGULAR CALLS


Coyotes are an essential part of North America’s ecosystem  But they can also be a pest.  They’re notorious for eating pets and small livestock. They’re also numerous in many areas, so their numbers need to be controlled, and the most effective and humane way to do that is by shooting.

Some places even allow coyote hunting year-round to thin the population.  The good news for hunters is that coyotes are a challenging and elusive quarry that makes for great sport.  The bad news is that it’s challenging enough that many find it hard to settle on the right techniques.

3 Critical Coyote-Hunting Tips

by Michael Faw – Wednesday, January 31, 2018

While all hunting is exciting, nothing spikes the excitement meter as high as coyote hunting. In most hunting situations for this species you are sitting on the ground, calling to imitate a meal such as a dying rabbit…and soon you have a coyote turning the tables and hunting you. It’s those many sharp, exposed fang-like teeth that are coming at you in a full-bore charge, and the overwhelming adrenaline rush that follows, that soon converts ordinary hunters into committed coyote chasers.

“While all hunting is fun, coyote hunting is at the top for thrills,” says Chase Watley of Centerville, Iowa. “The calling part is a lot of fun, and hopefully it will lead to shooting a coyote, which is even more fun.” Chase hunts on his family farm, and coyote numbers there have been rising in recent years.

Coyote Hunting Tips: A 101-Guide for the Beginner

BY: TONY J. PETERSON, THESPORTSMANCHANNEL.COM

Even though deer season is closed, there are plenty of hunting opportunities available; save some fawns and have fun by focusing on winter coyotes

Mortality studies conducted by state game agencies are shedding some light on the impact coyotes have on deer populations. The findings reveal a truth long suspected by much of the hunting public – coyotes, or song dogs, are killing machines.

This in itself isn’t such a big deal, until their populations start to increase. More canine bellies to fill means fewer prey animals on the horizon, it’s really that simple.

And worse, coyotes have benefitted somewhat from the anti- and non-hunting public’s distaste for wolf hunting.

8 Mistakes Rookie Coyote Hunters Make

BY BRAD FITZPATRICK 

Eichler and Zepp. They make it look so easy.

No matter how many times you watch the coyote-killing team on video, you just can’t figure out how to duplicate their success. While those guys seem to bring coyotes running to the gun every time they make a rabbit squeal, you’ve only managed to call in a few crows and one stray dog looking for an easy meal. You’ve spent a few months’ worth of rent on rifles, lights and calls. You’re developing tinnitus from listening to the scream of a dying rabbit over and over. And, still, you haven’t gotten a single ‘yote to show for your efforts.

Coyote Nation: A Crash Course in Coyote Hunting

By Tom Carpenter January 30, 2017

It used to be that when small-game, upland bird, waterfowl, and big-game seasons ended, a hunter finally had a chance to pull up an easy chair next to a cozy fire, rest up, and reflect on an autumn well spent.

Ditch that notion. Winter is time to hunt the hunter. Coyotes are out there waiting in habitat near you, and all you have to do is go after them to experience some of hunting’s knee-shakingest thrills.
