This is another one of those touchy subjects with many. It often turns into “I can shoot farther than you” conversation that turns to arguments at times. Even worse when you start throwing in the talk about animal distances!
This is what it comes down to and it is as simple as this. Your maximum effective shooting distance is that distance in which you are comfortable and can consistently put your arrows in a group one after another repeatedly.
Carl Zeiss Sports Optics recently announced the launch of the new TERRA 3x line of 1-inch riflescopes.
TERRA 3x riflescopes offer all the benefits of German quality, design, engineering and performance that you've come to expect from Zeiss, but at a price point highly competitive with traditional 1-inch riflescope manufacturers. With best in class image quality, comfortable ergonomics and robust construction, Zeiss builds TERRA 3x riflescopes to handle the most rugged terrain and challenging conditions, plus they're backed by the Carl Zeiss’ U.S.
Traditions Performance Firearms recently introduced what is calls "the next innovation in muzzleloading"--the Vortek StrikerFire. The gun has been in development since 2008, and rifle takes in-line muzzleloaders to the next level by using an internal StrikerFire system. To cock the gun, simply slide the striker button forward until it locks and shoot! The system allows for faster locktime, the ability to mount your scope closer to the bore, and allows the gun to operate at an ultralight 6 1/4 pounds.

I've been using this marinade for a while now and it is KILLER. Some friends from the island of Molokai shared it with me. They use it a lot on their axis deer steaks for the grill. If any of you have ever had the opportunity to eat axis deer meat you know what a treat that can be.
A trained retriever needs two very important skills: to be steady and to honor another working dog. These two skills are almost as important as a nice retrieve. They are not only important for hunt tests, but they are also important skills for a hunting dog to master.
In yesterday's post, I showed Freighter training "honor".
"Honor" is where the dog waits in a specified area while marks are thrown for another dog.
Ever hear of thermoelectric power? That's OK, you don't have to know how it actually works to use it. You just need a way to turn heat into energy and that's exactly what the PowerPot does: boiling water in this special receptacle will actually charge up your phone, tablet or any other USB-powered handheld device.
The $149 PowerPot works with any heat source, so you don't need a special stove: Electric (although that would be silly, no?), gas or a plain old fire will do the trick because you're just boiling water.

Nothing is more exciting than taking an animal with your bow. All of the time that you have put into scouting, preparing, and finally taking that shot has finally paid off. After all of the celebration of recovering your animal has taken place, the next step that most anyone will want to do is take a picture to remember the hunt.
