Turkey hunting has many challenges but one that is often overlooked is proper target acquisition. That problem can be resolved by choosing the right turkey gun sights.
Unlike other sporting birds that are shot while flying, turkeys are taken most often as they feed on the forest floor. The favored target is the brain and neck vertebrae as the turkey sticks its head up to investigate their surroundings. However, getting a proper sight picture on a target that bobs and weaves like an arcade whack-a-mole game can be almost impossible.
Springtime; the weather is getting warmer, the birds are out, and for most outdoorsmen, you are back inside daydreaming of next fall. Some may see springtime as the time of year to hang up your hunting boots and practice your range shooting. However, that is not totally necessary. While springtime hunting takes some thinking outside of the buck, we’ve compiled five springtime hunting opportunities for you to pursue this “offseason.”
Irish Setter just launched the lightest rubber boots in their entire history, the Irish Setter MudTrek rubber boots. These boots are 17-inches, non-insulated and topped with 7mm neoprene for ultimate waterproof protection. They are available in Realtree EDGE camo, to help you blend in with your surroundings.

Last week we had a gorgeous early spring day here in Central Pennsylvania. Not one of those almost too-warm afternoons that brings everyone into frenzy, but a pleasantly mild 50-some degrees, truly my favorite weather. I took the opportunity to head straight from work to scout for deer in the mountains.
Many folks shed hunt this time of year, which I somewhat do, but what I am really searching for is buck sign leftover from last fall's rut. During winter, the deer in this area herd up in thermal hemlock valleys which they don't frequent nearly as much during hunting season, so shed hunting does not benefit me substantially. Early spring prior to green-up is a tremendous time to be searching for new spots. I am looking for general areas with good deer concentrations, and next fall I will do stealth recon missions to verify there are bucks using the area and pinpoint stand locations. The combination of signs I look for are quite simple, yet require tuned-in observation to locate: convergence of deer trails, typically on benches, saddles, and other map features; with scrapes and rubs (preferably big) in the vicinity; and, food (acorns) and bedding within easy reach.
These bagels make for a hearty handheld meal and are truly delicious. If you’re into a high stack of meat on your sandwich, allot ½ lb of venison per person. If you’d prefer a normal amount of meat, do ¼ lb instead.
Hunting is a wonderful hobby, but it can take a lot of energy to plan and execute a successful trip. Sometimes you might just feel like spending the weekend at home after a long work week, relaxing with your family. But maybe you still want to get that same outdoorsy feeling at home as you do when you’re out on the prowl. While nothing can truly compare to the exhilaration and joy that comes with being on a great hunt, these five films do a good job at giving you that same rugged, adventurous feeling.
Returning from his mule deer hunt in Arizona, outdoors content creator Mike Rogers has a few pieces of advice to pass on to other outdoor enthusiasts eager to follow in his footsteps. One of the most important parts of hunting in the desert is finding the highest vantage point and being able to remain resilient in the fluctuating daily desert conditions. This means two types are gear are essential keys to success: clothing and optics.
I’ve always believed that you must suffer before you succeed, that you must go through pain, mishaps, and adversity to make an experience worthwhile. My experience in the eastern Nevada mountains came with no shortage of suffering, but that made it so much more rewarding.
It’s been an elephant in the room within the hunting industry for a while now, traditional ammo that’s made with plastics can lead to greater impact on the natural environment than any of us intended. While it’s responsible to pick up your shells and leave no trace, there are times when that’s not possible. Continuing their 157-year legacy of being on the cutting-edge of innovation in firearms, Winchester hopes to alleviate this with their new line of environmentally friendly E-tech Ammo.
