Think about how, when and where you’ll use your decoys before you buy As a waterfowl hunter, I love decoys and can’t ever seem to have enough of them. It seems every year I add more decoys to my spread. My collection includes both duck and goose decoys and consists of full bodies, shells, windsocks, silhouettes and floaters. While each variety of decoys will attract and lure birds, there are times, locations and conditions where one decoy type is better suited than the others.   Full-body decoys Full-body decoys … Read more »

Not what you’re looking for? Find more hunting articles! Shooting from the best possible position can increase your success rate As we snuck ever closer to the big red stag, my mind raced. It was like a scene out of one of those futuristic movies where a string of calculations runs across a visor before the shot is taken. We were well within the range of my 270WSM, but we were undetected and I wanted to stack the odds as greatly in my favour as I could. I’ve always been a high-odds shooter, doing everything in my power to increase … Read more »

Not what you’re looking for? Find more articles on hunting gear! Consider the potential weather and terrain when looking at buying a pair of hunting boots While often an after-thought for many hunters, my footwear is most often right near the very top of my hunting preparation list, usually just a tad behind my guns and ammunition. Stimulated, no doubt, by my recollection of boots that all but ruined my first sheep hunt, or to a pheasant hunt, as recent as this past fall, where my wife ended up with cold, wet feet in mere minutes of trudging through a … Read more »

How could any fish thrive in that environment? As we anchored, the current pushed us parallel to the spillway, threatening to swing us back and forth like so much flotsam. We started tossing our catfish rigs into the boil right at the base of the spillway, where six-ounce weights were sucked into the current and carried into the deep … Read more »

Not what you’re looking for? Find more articles on hunting gear! Accurate and fun to shoot for all ages Airguns have been a part of my life for longer than I care to admit. From the time when I envied a fellow kid down the block that had one, to purchasing a top-of-the-line airgun that cost me more than most of my centrefire rifles did. They are a blast to shoot and I have spent countless hours with them, punching holes in paper in an effort to keep my shooting skills sharp. Needless to say, I’m not alone as the … Read more »
