Everyone knows that dogs have incredible noses. But how much do you know about their eyes? As it turns out, a dog’s sight is no where near as good. Instead of seeing things as we do or in black and white, dogs are “color blind”. They do see some colors, but not the same ones we […]

What hunting is really about …

I used to make it out to South Dakota for the pheasant opener each year. While we always shot a lot of birds, the experience was about a lot more than the birds we brought home. This video from Team Wild TV reminds me of what I loved so much about it. While my crowd […]

A great gun — at a great price! This 20 gauge OU has it all – 28″ barrels, a straight “English” grip, and a nice long LOP. It’s pretty light, too, at just 6lbs, 4ozs. These over unders were built for Sig Arms by B. Rizzini, and they’re very reliable and trouble free. You could […]

Here’s a decent looking double that would surely get the job done in South Dakota and Montana. Even if it’s not the prettiest SxS in the world, it sure is priced right. With its ejectors, straight stock, original 2 3/4″ chambers, and slick looking long forend, I don’t see how you can go wrong. JP SAUER ROYAL GRADE […]

Here’s a real rare double. It’s an 8g Sneider made in the 1880s. When this SxS was built, it was one of the finest hammerless shotguns being made in America — and one of the most innovative. E & C Sneider was founded by  Charles Edward Sneider. He learned his trade in Europe and by 1859 he was […]

Here’s something unsual: A hammerless 12g James Woodward & Sons side-by-side shotgun with a second-pattern James Purdey & Sons thumbhole lever. Very odd.
