Airgun Photo Wall
A collection of Airgun Hunting Photos from myself and several of my hunting friends in the USA, South Africa, Australia,
Mexico, Puerto Rico,  the UK, and other places around the world! We're going to put up photos with no more than a
paragraph explaining what the picture is capturing! If you have a cool pic to go on the wall, send it to me!
I Took the Talon-P carbine out for a Minnesota squirrel hunt
and took this pair of grays, one at 30 yards and one at 50
yards. The JSB .25 Kings made a profound impact on these
bushytails. I have a two squirrel limit on several of my
permissions, that I use for short morning or afternoon hunts
around my normal working day
.

Brian Beck Puts the Smackdown on Yotes
Brian to these five dogs during a weekend predator competition in
central Indiana. He used coyote vocalizations and distress calls to
lure them into shooting range, where his Airforce Condor .25
shooting slugs at about 90 fpe, and the Escape .22 for closer range,
did the job. Brian uses both head and body shots, and proved either
works!
Jim's California Gobbler with the Rotek
During the spring turkey season in California, I'd been invited
out to Northern California to hunt turkey with spring piston turkey
airgunner expert Glenn Elliott. Glenn kept us on turkey the
entire trip and with the generous California limits (3 birds per
season/ one per day) we put a lot of drumsticks on the table.
This trip was great, try it if you get the chance!

Jim's Virginia DAQ .452 Whitetail
I'd been hunting in Texas on a ranch that put you in blinds
over feeders in the early morning and afternoon. And
picked you up for lunch and a nap in between. My
cameraman Clay Pruitt and I found that only small pigs
came in during the daylight and the big ones stayed in the
thick brush until nightfall. Our solution? Go in after them,
and it paid off!
Glenn is the California turkey king with an airgun, using spring piston
airguns exclusively. He hunts from a blind, which means he has to do a
very good job patterning the birds. Glenn uses headshots on his birds,
with most falling between 5-15 yards. For those thinking close shots are
easy, out of three birds I pulled the trigger on the only one I missed was at
5 yards.... the 30 and 40 yard birds were clean hits... Hope to hut with
Glenn next spring!
Visiting my friends Nathan Wenger and Chip Sayer on Nathans
farm in Virginia's Shennadoa Valley, we had some doe tags to
fill on his depredation permit. This one was taken at about 65
yards using my Quackenbush .452 short rifle. Love this gun,
Dennis Quackenbush designed it to spec for me, to be
everything I envisioned in a woodland deer rifle!
Recent Features & Videos
I'll keep a cache of recent articles, videos, and other content here, before it shuffles off
to the archive pages. Also be sure to check out the archives, there are articles on many
guns going back over a decade.
"This represents a new opportunity for airgun hunters adequate power, limited reach,
and relatively quiet"
Hunting the New Air Shotgun   
I've been out hunting this unique new air powered scattergun from Venturi Air.  ..
the purpose designed shotshell, It is a
frangible plastic construction filled with either
#6 or #8, though I've been playing around
with lighter and heavier loads.  The gun is
generating around 1000 fps with the #6
shot, and provides a usable pattern from 10
- 30 yards. I knocked doves out of the sky at
30 yards, though for rabbits and squirrel am
keeping the shoots at 15 yards, give or
take.  I'll be releasing another VIDEO soon
using the gun for different types of game.
The gun I was using in this video was using
a standard rifle stock with a pistol grip and
highish cheekpiece, but the production gun I
am now using is dressed in a more
traditional shotgun style stock with a straight
wrist.
In this video, I take the Ruger Talon out for Eurasian doves,
and it does a great job filling the game bag! I like my PCP's,
but there something to be said for getting into the field with a
springer!

Iguana Hunt in Puerto Rico
I head down to the Caribbean for a unique hunt; there is a
population explosion of these cool reptiles, and they are causing
tremendous damage to both native plants and agricultural crops.
Unfortunately, they have to be removed,  and culling them is the
only viable option.
Deer Hunting the New Badger .40
A new gun, and for me a new caliber! It worked a charm
and I'm looking forward to using both a lot more!

This was not a typical hog hunt, I had my light predator gun along when

PCP? Why?
I head back to Texas on another hog hunt, this time
with the Hatsan Hercules, a new .357 from a company
that's been coming out with some interesting and cost
effective performance rifles lately. Let's see how
this works on the Lone Star Porkers!

world.
On a trip down south, there was a short break in the weather
that let us get out after javalina. I was using the Badger .40,
which is one of the best values to be found in airgunning, and
specifically the most affordable of the powerful big bores. The
gun is distributed through Airgun Depot.  

The Badger is accurate, powerful, fairly light (compared to
most other big bores) and because of the simple design it is
reliable. I believe the .40 is a brilliant caliber, that is a strong
performer on deer sized game, while flat shooting enough to be
a solid longer range predator gun as well. . The reason I think
this gun a game changer, is availability and price. Now more
people can buy a rifle without waiting and without the high
costs associated with the fine custom guns, and more hunters
in the field the quicker game laws will evolve!
