Over the past 25 years I have been forced to carry certain handguns loaded with specific ammunition based on agency regulations.

Once upon a time it was NYPD’s wisdom that forced upon me a 6 shooter with lead semi wadcutter ammo. Not even plus P, the loads gave us the impression the bureaucrats didn’t want us to hurt anybody too badly. I never would have contemplated trying to hunt even small game with those handguns and that amm

I was recently sent a selection of gun rests to review by the kind folks over at RRR and Associates, LLC and came away impressed with the usefulness that these simple rests provide.

We have all been in a situation while hunting during which we needed some support under the front of our rifles in order to make an accurate and ethical shot. Usually we resort to using some other piece of gear, such as a pair of

This video posted by Haakor shows two massive buffalo fighting for dominance. They push and wrestle to the point that one’s horn is broken, but that doesn’t stop them! With blood dripping during the fight, you’ll ask yourself ’til the end: which cape buffalo will win?

He might have got hurt, but that didn’t stop him. This buffalo kept on going, even after half his horn was knocked off. The horns of Cape buffalo are fused at the base and form a solid bone plate over their skull. This is so thick,

Deer season is upon us throughout the country and that means the fall explosion of leaves and the changing of the seasons is here as well. If you are a hunter, the last bit of venison should be just about gone from your freezer in preparation for this season’s harvest. If not, here is a great way to use up a venison roast that just might still be lingering. Hard apple cider is a major component of this recipe as well as a can of your favorite beer. With that being said, how could you not try t

Wouldn’t it be great to somehow manage to “whisper” to that record buck and get him to walk right up to us? For most of us it doesn’t work that way.

Turns out some people, like Maya,  are capable of getting deer to trust them. In a video posted to YouTube by her father Brad Herring. Watch the video below.

I can only assume that her deer whisperer powers were a one time thing, but it looks like an amazing experience that she will never forget.

In his video description Herring says that he believes

The competitive sport of bass fishing is a relatively young one even though catching bass is as old as America itself. In the sport of bass fishing’s young age there have been a few people who have taken the sport from being one that was rarely heard of outside of the Southeast United States and turned it into an internationally followed sport and a multi-billion dollar industry.

These twenty anglers below may not all be tournament anglers to rival the tournament accomplishments of Kevin Van Dam

Check out this amazing video, uploaded by FishEGuy, of a hungry osprey attacking his hooked bass as he reels it close to shore. Judging by his reaction, he certainly was not expecting this surprise visit from the fish-eating bird of prey.

After missing on its first attempt to steal the bass, the osprey makes a second pass but veers away once it sizes up the angler. We have all seen videos of other fish attacking hooked fish and even other creatures stealing fish, but have you ever seen an osprey

Campers at the DeGrey River rest area in Western Australia learned the hard way they need to secure their alcohol, as well as their food, from wildlife. A feral pig stole three six packs of beer from campers, crushed the cans, then guzzled the beer in them. The drunk feral pig then went on an alcohol induced rampage at the campsite.

As reported in The Guardian, the behavior of the drunk feral pig was not too different from the behavior of drunk humans: the pig gorged itself on unsecured food at

In this video by CJMoretta, a homemade bazooka, or really, a tube with a bottle rocket, is used to light a camp fire. These hooligans try to light a fire in the most extreme, maybe dumbest, way possible. There are far more practical and safer ways to light a campfire, but you can’t do them from 20 feet away.

When the bottle rocket ignites, the fuel-soaked woodpile bursts into a massive fireball, setting off a nearby car alarm and sending the guys into a fit of joyful hysterics the way only a big

If you hate going to the mall, and often get dragged there by your significant other or family member, you probably space out and think of things you’d rather be doing, things like fishing. You’ve probably looked at the fish pond near the food court and thought, “Man, where’s my fishing pole?” Well, this guy brought his.

The reactions to his fishing at the mall prank are pretty funny.
