Two of the titans of the sea were caught battling it out over a female near the Maui coast last week by photographer Kate Cummings.

The bull humpback whales, each weighing 30 to 40 tons, fought for 20 minutes to assert dominance. Their conflict comes at the end of the breeding season in Hawaii, when fights over females are relatively common.

Competing whales such as this pair will usually fight by surfacing rapidly and rolling towards their opponent. They’ll then butt heads, slap their tails and p

This marriage proposal is one of the best hunting-themed ones of all time.

 

Kyle Heuerman was with Miss Jennifer Weaver when she shot this trophy buck they named Kick It In on November 11, 2013.

When Kyle calls Jennifer on her cell phone to come down to the treestand because he had a twisted ankle, she gets a great surprise. Not only is her taxidermy trophy buck ready early and waiting there where she harvested it, but so is Kyle with a bigger surprise.

Soon to be Mrs. Kyle Heuerman is quite

The guys from BlacktipH are known for their angling skills, but this is a little ridiculous.

Watch as they land sailfish after sailfish in this incredible offshore trip.

 

It wasn’t just a good day, that was an astonishingly awesome day!

Her name is Patsy, and she is a mean, lean Jack Russell terrier from South Africa. You’re about to see Patsy shakedown a 4-foot-long Cape Cobra, one of the most venomous snakes in South Africa.

Charles Koekemoer, the man who posted this online video, said Patsy found the snake behind a bookshelf, dragged it out to the lawn and “sorted it out.”

You’ll see what that means in the clip below. Let’s just say, we wouldn’t want to be the snake.

 

Despite their small size, Jack Russell terriers are fierce

Semi-automatic shotguns have been around since 1900, and their uses vary almost as much as the people who shoot them. While the market is full of ultra-modern shotguns, from the hunting grounds to the trap range to the field of battle, the classic Remington 1100 has remained as popular as ever.

First introduced in 1963, the Remington 1100 represented a huge leap forward in automatic shotgun design, and it changed the American shooting public’s perception of fi

Every hunter has his or her own motives for heading into the woods in pursuit of their game of choice. One may hunt to feed his family while another hunts for a trophy to hang on her wall. But all hunters have one thing in common, ultimately we are trying to have a successful hunt where we cleanly harvest an animal.

I think we can all agree what constitutes a successful hunt, but how do you gauge an entire successful hunting season ? Do you gauge success by total number of animals harvested? Or

After viewing this video uploaded by YouTube user Felicia Marie, we’re pretty certain it’s one of the more inventive ways of fending off trespassing hunters.

Early in the clip this gentleman triggers a tripwire that sprays paint all over him and his rifle.

The uploader commented that it was a video captured by her mother’s boyfriend, which tells us it was likely a legitimate trespassing situation. Anyone who was allowed to hunt the property would have known about the tripwire, we presume.

What should you look for when shopping for crampons before heading to the hills this winter?

Rambo, anti-bot, 10-point, 12-point, strap-on, clip-on… What do they all have in common? They’re all crampons and considering they act as simulated claws for human feet, it’s not surprising the prospect of buying a pair can seem so confusing to mere mortals.

Don’t Buy on Impulse

While it may be tempting to simply buy the first sharp, shiny pair of crampons that you come across on display, resist the
