Steve’s Garage: Wall and Ceiling Organization

Psychological peace can be found in many places; the side of a mountain, the bottom of the ocean, even in your own garage. So, how can a place that holds the most gear, tools, and stuff provide any sense of mental clarity? Thoughtful organization. I like to keep items handy that make it out on every...

That is, until we come face-to-face with with an strong-willed animal like Tyler and Sheena Terryberry of Parshall, Colorado, did during a morning drive on Jan...

First Lite's New Camo Pattern is Perfectly Designed for Waterfowlers

Typha is a Linnaean genus containing some 30 species of rhizomatous semi-aquatic plants, the most common of which are known to you and me as reeds, bulrushes, tulies, and cattails. They’re pretty much synonymous with wetlands and the waterfowl hunting that occurs among them. The waterfowl team at...

How to Snare a Snowshoe Hare

If you are what you eat, then I am mostly snowshoe hare. Or at least I was while living in the frozen wilderness of the Northwest Territories on Season 7 of the History Channel's show "Alone." Snowshoe hares are good eating,, and they taste even better cooked over an open fire with the smell of wood...

How to Kill a Limit of Ducks in a Snowstorm

Duck hunters have a romance about snowstorms that most other hunters don’t share. If you ask a duck hunter what some of their favorite conditions are, they’ll almost unanimously love blizzards.

Video: Is Shooting Off a Backpack or Bipod More Accurate?

After recently missing a shot on a black bear hunt with Clay Newcomb, I wanted to determine if shooting off a bipod or a pack is more accurate. I had my rifle dialed in for the hunt but didn’t have the time to set my bipod up, so I took the shot off my pack and missed low. To test the difference...
