Riflescope Magic: Working With Reticles   -  7/21/2014

Global Outfitters Outdoor Articles
GO Outdoor University - Vol. 6
By: Richard Mann
Feature Article - How to - Tips By: Richard Mann

Ballistic reticles have become all the rage. In some ways this is a good thing because it helps hunters hit at longer distances. It can be a bad thing if it inspires hunters to shoot beyond a range where they are capable of hitting, especially if doing so without prior certification their reticle is actually telling them exactly where their bullet will hit. I've experimented with most of the ballistic reticles available and have yet to find one that does not work. The trick is spending time on the practice range to obtain the proper zero and validate additional aiming points.

As far as humans are considered, hunting has been a major staple of sustenance since the dawn of our species. As I sat there in the cold with a light breeze biting at my cheeks, my mind took me back to another time, sort of a daydream I suppose. I thought about those Upper Paleolithic bowhunters some 10,000 years ago, wearing hides and sitting, perhaps in this very spot, waiting for game animals while snow-laced winds stung, wrapped and bit at their faces.

That was a surprise treat running into Larry Houck, the FNH USA 3 Gun team, and the folks from 3 Gun Nation.

If you aren't familiar with 3 Gun competitions, keep coming back to Global Outfitters.com. I will be covering this growing sport very extensively in the coming months.

The 3 Gun format is pretty simple really. A competitor must complete three stages hitting the designated targets. The competitor is timed while completing the course. It's called 3 Gun because the competitor uses a rifle, a shotgun, and a handgun during the timed competition.

I find it curious, if not aggravating when I hear a lot of noise how evil guns are when a firearm is used during a heinous crime. It seems like it is part of the required news reporting.

What about other crimes and accidents?

Just last week we heard of the tragic stabbings at the high school in Pennsylvania but no talk about the weapon used. The media pundits spoke about the alleged criminal and how he must have had some mental problems. He was a social outcast. But they didn't talk knives that much. When a gun is involved, watch out.

The best way to learn the trajectory of your bullet is to shoot at long range. That's not an easy option for many shooters so we rely on ballistic reticles, drop charts or ballistic software to help us reach out and get hits. External ballistics - the flight of the bullet between barrel and target - is just a physics problem. Yes, it's a complicated physics problem but there's always a mathematical solution. Nikon has simplified this math problem so anyone can work it.

SIRT 110 PRO Training Pistol

I was talking with expert firearms instructor and friend Mike Hughes about handgun training recently. I've had trouble with my shots pulling left. As we were talking about my struggles, the discussion evolved into dry fire training, trigger control, grip, as recoil management. There are some gun gurus who preach the rule live fire training is the best and only way to train because you need to learn how to manage the recoil. There are others who like to work on each discipline of shooting in pieces.

I can tell you first hand as a former athlete and trainer, it is a great idea to break down the components, or principles, of the activity separately to find your weaknesses and improve those skills. Breaking down the movements into small activities and getting better at each movement will produce a better result more consistently.

Here is what Mike had to say about dry fire and recoil management...

Ethics is defined by what we do when nobody's looking. We should all follow the letter of the game laws, but ethics transcend what's written in the lawbooks. As ethical, responsible sportsmen, certain behaviors are expected of us. We need to follow the written as well as the unwritten rules; demonstrating respect to the animals we hunt, the land we hunt on and its owners, and those we share the woods with - be they hunters or not. And nowhere is that more important than when turkey hunting.

Seedbed Requirements

Deciding whether to use a tractor or ATV to prepare a wildlife food plant is a big decision to make and the decision may have a lot to do with the success or failure of the food plot.

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you had better plan on purchasing a tractor and plow or contracting with a local farmer to break the plot with a strong farm tractor and plow. Trying to use an ATV in most of these situations can be dangerous, hard on the equipment used and frustrating to you resulting in a less than desirable crop. It's simply more than an ATV was designed to do.

Back in the early 1900's ol' Joe didn't have many rules or much technology to help him almost eradicate the Wild Turkey population. Most likely, Joe used a rifle to pluck turkeys from the roost in bunches. How much times have changed! Modern wildlife management practices and conservation laws have helped bring back this national treasure to record numbers. But, none of this keeps hunters and manufacturers from searching for the best equipment and technology to give them the edge while turkey hunting.

Product Review - Advertorial

G.O. Joe Archer, circa 1912, had to camo-up and develop new tactics before becoming much of a threat hunting turkeys with a bow. In fact, the bow toting turkey hunter reached near extinction as Native American Indians gained access to modern firearms in the 1800's. It wasn't till the very early 1900's when the first archery hobbyist mastered field archery and first considered testing their sporting skills against our almost national bird, the Wild Turkey. The transformation has taken over a hundred years. This is relatively a short span of time in evolutionary terms, and it is safe to say that both human species and Meleagris gallopavo (turkey) species are certainly alive and flourishing.

When most folks think about turkey hunting, they think about spring, and mating season, when you try to exploit a gobbler's amorous Achilles heel by imitating a lovesick hen.

Fall birds are less inclined to come to a call, though they will if you give them a reason. You must rely more on the turkey's gregarious nature.

Deer Hunter Drill - Practice Makes Perfect   -  11/1/2013

Global Outfitters Outdoor Articles
GO Outdoor University - Vol. 1.
By: Richard Mann
Feature Article - Adventure - How to - Tips

When I was 15 I was walking down an old logging road with my rifle slung over my shoulder - feeling for all the world like Jack O'Connor. (I might have even have been wearing a cowboy hat.) Thick laurel bordered the road and visibly was limited. I hadn't gone far when the largest whitetail buck I'd ever seen bounded out, stopped and looked me right in the eye. I struggled to find my breath and to bring my rifle to bear but was too slow doing both and he was gone. Forever.

Wilderness Calls Double D Gravity Deer Feeders

I have watched the Redneck Guru over the past two years working his magic constructing the first deer feeder that is only open for business for deer and large game. He has gone back to the drawing board to include continuous improvements. I have witnessed it in the field and at deer breeder operations. Everyone should step up and take notice of this feeder the hogs and varmints cannot get to.

Establishing Realistic Expectations for Your Gundog Pup   -  10/30/2013

While at a field trial last year I witnessed a handler going ballistic when his dog was disqualified for breaking at the line. As he yanked the dog back to his truck he was yelling obscenities at the top of his lungs. What made the situation worse was that the poor gent had two dogs competing and the first dog took off to retrieve a fallen pheasant, and no lie, the dog grabbed the fallen bird and kept going until he ended up in a corn field about half a mile from our location.

Egyptian Wheat for Squirrels   -  10/25/2013

By: J. Wayne Fears
Feature Article - Adventure - How to - Tips

My introduction to Egyptian wheat, a tall growing grain sorghum, had nothing to do with squirrels. It was simply a supplemental plant for Quail Haven soybeans to run up. The main crop was the running soybeans as a warm season wildlife food plot. However, by early fall I was watching wild turkey and quail going to great lengths to get to the Egyptian wheat seed heads, and more impressive were the number of squirrels coming out of the nearby woods to feed on the wheat seed.

Product Review - How to - Tips

It was the Christmas of Christmas's. Under the red cedar Christmas tree, we had cut behind the barn, brought into the house and decorated with popcorn and colored paper chains, was my very own Daisy Red Ryder Carbine. It was a dream come true. Like Ralph in The Christmas Story, after months of frantic wishing, I had a real Red Ryder BB gun.

I don't remember how old I was when I got the Red Ryder Carbine. Not much over nine years if I had to guess. I am sure it was a financial strain on my parents budget to pay for the gun but thy felt it would help me learn responsibility and to learn the life skill of marksmanship. They were right on both accounts.

Dear Dad,

On this special day reserved to honor fathers, I want to thank you, long overdue as it may be, for one of the most valuable gifts you have ever given me - a love of the outdoors. You dispensed it to me in small increments over many years, and I cherish every moment of its giving.

My earliest memories are of weekends when you would take time out for long strolls with me down the abandoned country road that led to the Clark River near our house. It was just you and me, and I felt important. Those long afternoon hikes down "the ol' backroad," as we called it, were great adventures to me.
