|What's New This Month!
|WHAT'S UP ON THE WRITING FRONT?
I am keeping busy with writing this year, and while my primary outlet is still Predator Xtreme, have started doing regular hunting articles for Airgun Hobbyist, and as for the last few years do occassional pieces for Fur Fish Game. More recently I've started a bi-monthly series for the British magazine Airgun Shooter.
|This month I have my regular column, which is an interview with Dennis Quackenbush, and a Passport to Adventure feature on setting up an airgunning prairie dog hunt,|
|I have an upcoming article on electronic callers for airgun hunters, which is an area of interest for any hunters after predators with their airguns.|
|Links to a huge archive of stored articles spanning the last nine years of the American Airgun Hunter. You'll find resources and information on just about eveything airgun related, with photos of guns and game from my own vault and those sent to me by friends from around the airgunning world.|
|Big Bores in the Lonestar State! Texas was ground zero in the movement to grow the sport of big bore airgun hunting, a look back.|
|A new hunting video of my trip out to Arizona a few months ago, Jackrabbit, cottontail, and prairie dogs!|
|Getting Ready for Africa! In september we head back to hunt with my friends and profesional hunters Rob Dell and Andrew Myers.|
|Editorial Comment: As a lot of you that follow my blog or articles in various publications might know, I've been in the middle of selling a house, buying another one, and relocating my family from Indianapolis to Minneapolis. What little spare time I've had, has been spent doing a bit of shooting and hunting with some new guns and gear so that I could achieve "must do" deadlines for print.... and my website has not been getting the attention or the updates with the frequency I've always tried to maintain. In the coming year there is a lot going on; new guns, new gear, and lot's of great hunts lined up. Thanks for the many visitors that have stayed with the site, all the emails have been appreciated, and in the coming year the American Airgun Hunter site will be changing, growing, and improving! As you'll see, I am trying some new formats, and will be adding a lot of video on our YouTube channel.
|The Ameristep Camo Poncho
I've started using this great 3D poncho a lot over the last several months - it goes over anything, it gives great coverage, and breaks up the hunters outline as well or better than anything I've ever used!
|I have a feature in this months edition on using the .30 caliber guns for hunting predators. There is a lot of activity for guns in the caliber by several manufacturers.|
|I have an article iin last months edition on hunting plains game in South Africa with airguns. In next months edition I'll be hunting raccoons with hunting buddy Brian Beck.|
