    Hello "Fellow" FReepers; Since I was asked to help out on this page, I have been figuring out how do we discuss Prepping with out going over board? So now let us gather 'round and discuss with calm cool head/s & level thoughts. What are we prepping for. [Just remember to use Operational Security Rules (OPSEC), keep your mouth shut on your specific gear] Not everyone here is friendly to our/your cause or self! So now, what are we worried about, storms, economic collapse, civil unrest, grid down, earth quakes, pandemic, or what. I have several nightmare scenarios, that keep...

    Yes, hunting deer with eagles is a real thing in Hungary. Indeed they do, and the eagles are the perfect tool for the job. The apex bird of prey anywhere just has to be the eagle. With massive power and large sharp talons, this magnificent bird of prey has all the tools it needs to down big game. These hunters in Hungary have teamed up with eagles to pursue deer. With amazing gracefulness, the eagles descent upon their prey and make the kill. Human partners move in quick to make sure the eagles are safe. Then the eagles get the...

    No, this isn't the one that you see on youtube of an eagle attacking a small deer. It's another one out in the open field, not sure exactly where. You'll see the eagle come screaming across to nab the deer and they both tumble with the eagle taking a dominant position. Have a look here.

    As a massive hockey fan as I am, I have become fascinated with the penalty box, the Ryker's Island of sports, in reality a jail cell where offending hockey players are sentenced in two- to 10-minute increments for charges ranging from cross checking to hooking, slashing to holding the stick (no jokes intended). When you are guilty of said crimes, your pays the price and has to trudge on - a man down mind you – while the player must sit and watch in timeout in a tiny, isolated space. It's one reason why I enjoy hockey so much. Think...

    Is this really Hunting?Deer season is pretty much done for most of us across the country. We know the real struggle of it, too. Sitting out there through the wind, snow, ice, and all around terrible weather conditions hoping to fill our freezers can be rather daunting. But isn't real hunting all about roughing it out in the wilderness cold? However, there are some that hunt out of luxury deer stands that don’t share this pain. These hunters, the other half, sit on sofas and watch TV while hunting. If it starts to snow, they grab a blanket, turn the...

    Taking 12ga to a whole new level of destruction. 12ga slugs have been rightly known as good stoppers on dangerous game, but tend to over-penetrate in hominids. OATH Ammunition has two new designs that solve over-penetration along with greatly improving reliability in box-fed shotguns. Above is their 1.25oz 1600fps all-copper slug designed to expand to an incredible 2.5" and penetrate just enough to punch through a hostile human with little energy left to harm anyone downrange. If you've ever heard the expression: "a hole big enough to toss a cat through," consider that cats can fit any opening larger than...

They did not start cutting open the pig until they had strapped it to the ATV and driven back home so most of the blood has left the pigs body at this point. They have also shot wild pigs on the ranch before and none of them have been blue.

Fish and Game officials in Preston checked the male after it was killed in late December, and are hoping to be recontacted by the hunter to find out where the carcass is. Spokeswoman Jennifer Jackson says that biologists would like to check it out to see from a scientific standpoint just what was going on with the cougar. They're waiting on the hunter to return...

    Madison - Rep. Joel Kleefisch (R-Oconomowoc) said he's been cited for killing two turkeys with one shot. Kleefisch said Monday he was hunting Sunday in Waukesha County when he killed the tom as well as a nearby jake with pellets from the same shot. He said he didn't mean to shoot the jake but called a warden because he lacked a tag for the second bird. He was told he would be cited since he was warned several years ago about being sure of his target when he dropped three geese with one shot. Kleefisch said the citation is in...

    Many of you hunters/precision long range shooters out there have various methods on gauging distances on long range shots. Here's one method that I came across and by all means let me know what your techniques are. The first is to know precisely where your rifle bullet will hit at the longer ranges, and the second is to be fairly accurate at judging the distance at which the shot will be taken. If you can't do BOTH of those things when you are looking through your scope at an animal - DON'T SHOOT! Shooting JournalAt the range, it's easy to...

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ^ | 12-17-15 | Paul A. Smith
    If you're a white-tailed deer in Milwaukee County, odds are you live in or near the county's park system. The 15,000 acres of parks and parkways provide more than 90% of the deer habitat in the county, according to an assessment by the Department of Natural Resources. That's a lot of land, but not enough for a deer to hide in. Especially if you're a big-racked buck like "Bow Tie." Bow Tie was a very well-known white-tailed deer that was frequently seen in Milwaukee County. Randy Crawford of Wauwatosa is a wildlife photographer and hunter who enjoys viewing and capturing...

    There isn't a clear answer on deterring poachers. The subject itself brings a sharp pain to every landowner’s asses. The right way to handle this is to let the authorities handle this. The following is an excerpt from a landowner on this ordeal and how he handled it. David was a proud new landowner. He bought his 640-acre place in the rural South and started fixing up the old farm house. His land had a garden, fields for planting, built wood duck boxes, and stocked two lakes with bass and pan fish. Life was good for the new country landlord...

    African proverbs have it that it takes a village to raise a child.

I frequently attend these free youth and family pheasant hunts put on by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife during the fall. I go purely as an observer and really look forward to watching the...

The only state that beats us consistently is Louisiana, home of the infamous Duck Commander crew. So to someone who doesn't speak duck, one might think that we California sportsmen kill limits every morning we slide into our waders. As avid waterfowlers know, that simply ain't the case. Our sunny California weather plays a huge role in why we don't kill limits every day at Colusa, Sutter Butte and Gray Lodge refuges. Blue bird days...

    Since 2000, hunting participation by females has risen dramatically in the U.S. In the first year of the new millennium, 5,264 females passed the mandatory hunter education course. The course is required of every hunter born on or after Sept. 2, 1971. By 2010, 8,500 females, 20.3 percent of all students, passed hunter education. In 2014, 16,534 females took the course. Females represented 23 percent of last year's 72,015 hunter ed students.

    I've been fortunate to hunt in North America for more than 30 years, mostly in Wisconsin but also in Alaska, Montana, Canada and Mexico, and have many treasured experiences. The 2015 Wisconsin deer season, however, brought an unwelcome first in my world. A buck I shot Nov. 2 in Richland County tested positive for chronic wasting disease. I learned about the test result on Wednesday. The meat from this buck, which I deboned, wrapped and stored frozen, will be thrown in the garbage. The 30 pounds of sausage made from trimmings will be tossed, too. Destroying the venison goes against...

It's difficult to be cruising social media and see private-land hunters talk about how many deer they saw during a recent hunt. On public land, you're sometimes lucky to even see a deer over a week's period of time. With all the frustrations and challenges, it is not impossible to harvest a buck on public land. In fact, I've had opportunities to take a legal buck every season for the...

    Before you read this story I would like to put emphasis on a couple of points. First and foremost, if you go hunting (especially in a remote area) always go with a partner. If something happens to you, the chances of getting out of trouble increase by having a buddy go with you. I would never go hunting alone, it's just too darn dangerous. Secondly, if you do hunt alone, always take a satellite phone, or a GPS locator with you. If you are hurt and cannot get back to civilization, at least you can let someone know exactly where...

Now deer hunters everywhere use these tried-and-true tactics. We take a look back in our archives to when these trusty standbys were still considered downright bizarre. The brush-country hunters of Texas and New Mexico were crashing antlers together for decades before the trend caught fire in the rest of whitetail country. Although native hunters likely developed the technique, legend has it that an old market hunter accidentally discovered the phenomenon: "He was coming...

Here are six old-school tips worth remembering as you prepare to hit the water for ducks and geese this fall. Add motion - Before motion decoys, hunters used jerk strings and pumped their legs in the water to send ripples through their spread. Another great trick is to mount an electric trolling motor to your blind or on a wood frame painted to blend in, set it near your spread, and let the propeller...

But for many hunters there is just not always enough time to get in the woods and hunt sheds. But with just a few dollars and a little bit of time you can build an antler...

Wes was soon corrected about shoulder carry, and rightly so. Shoulder carry, as exemplified by Senator Ted Cruz in the Picture, is explicitly suggested as a means of safely carrying a shotgun or rifle. It is...

    When it comes to deer hunting bullets, expansion is usually the name of the game. Some of the most widely-used hunting bullets were designed 50 and 60 years ago, when deer hunting was much less prevalent than it is now (simply because we didn't have very many deer). These days, deer hunters as a group wield the most sway with major manufacturers of rifle ammo. We buy the most ammo and demand performance from it. If it fails, we tell everyone about it and buy someone else's product. Enter Winchester's R&D department and a new approach to a hunting bullet....

    She was a big old doe, with that long head and thick, squared-up body; she conducted herself with a caution and attention not seen in the younger deer.

Hidden in a pile of brush, just an odd-shaped stump, nothing to worry about here, I watched her, had been watching her, as she had first appeared and while she worked the thicket, first out of range, now closer, now close...

    Ive always been fascinated with snakes. I will admit that as a youth they absolutely terrified me. While I ran around catching lots of lizards and frogs, whenever I bumped into a snake, I did less catching and more running. As I got older and learned more about them, I began actually seeking snakes out in the hopes of seeing them up close and capturing them. Id carefully handle the nonvenomous ones, take a few photos and then release them. I did get bit a handful of times, but for the most part the encounters were interesting and educational. Every...

The bull elephant had never been seen before, and likely would have died with no one knowing of its existence if the hunt had not taken place.From telegraph.co.uk:Mystery surrounded the identity of the elephant, which was estimated to have been between 40 and 60 years old, but had never been seen before in Zimbabwes southern Gonarezhou National Park.But its tusks, which touch the ground in a photograph taken moments after its shooting, confirmed its exceptional nature, weighing an estimated 120lb each.

    There are a multitude of Choices for Rifle Scopes for Hunting White-Tailed Deer When is the last time you saw a deer rifle without a scope on it? I am betting it has been quite a few deer seasons ago. I think it has been 1970 since I saw a deer rifle in the woods using only open sights. I remember this because it was my first deer rifle, a Winchester Model 94 in 30-30. I bought the rifle at J.C. Penney for $66. I killed my first buck with that rifle at a whopping range of 20 yards....

    Hunting with muzzleloaders is popular enough that most states have special or separate seasons for hunters using them. The rules for those seasons vary, so if you are setting up a hunt, even near home, do a little homework to see which guns, calibers, sights and styles of ignition are favored during those times. In my home state of Washington, the ignition must be exposed, which means an in-line rifle that has an enclosed percussion nipple and cap are not allowed. Also, Washington does not allow scopes on muzzleloaders when used during the muzzleloading seasons. Scoped muzzleloaders can only be...

    Theyve come a long ways, metaphorically at least, from designing outdoor fashion clothes for women out of a home garage in Northern California. Jenifer Adams and Norissa Harman had a vision that spawned a successful company, Girls With Guns Clothing. But while the gals remain small-town at heart, choosing to continue their work out of Red Bluff, a quiet hamlet of 14,000 off Interstate 5, 130 miles north of Sacramento, even for these ambitious entrepreneurs, traveling across a continent, an ocean and hunting the wild lands of Africa in front of a TV camera was something altogether different. Just as...

    The American dentist who sparked worldwide outrage in July when he killed Cecil Zimbabwes most beloved lion will not be charged with any crime because the hunt was perfectly legal, authorities said Monday. Walter Palmer, 55, had all (his) papers in order when he tracked the rare black-maned big cat and took him down with a bow and arrow just outside Hwange National Park in the Western part of the African country, according to Reuters. Environment Minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri told local media that Zimbabwean authorities had conducted an investigation in part with the Prosecutor General, which concluded that...
  • Professor: Whites Hunting for Sport is the Equivalent of Lynching Black People

    The Social Memo ^ | 10/2/15 | Aurelius
    According to Dr. Warren J. Blumenfeld, who is a staff member of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, hunting animals for sport has many similarities to lynching African Americans. In his article "White Supremacy and Devaluation of African [Heritage] Lives," Blumenfeld explains how hunting animals in Africa is very similar to murdering black people. Dr. Blumenfeld begins, "The philosophy and practice of white supremacy devalues all African and African heritage lives whether human or non-human animal. White supremacy links slavery in the "Americas" with the ongoing police killings of unarmed black people and to the killing of animals on the continent...
