I normally go out and start buying hunting gear just before hunting season rolls around.  That happens to be when I start thinking about it and it’s also when the products are in stores and are also on prominent display.  That’s a good time to buy hunting gear since it’s all right in front of you and you have lots to choose from.  But if you want to save some money, buying right before season might not be the best time to buy.

Buying products in the off-season is a great way to save money.   Products are seriously discounted so that they will move out to make room for products that are in-season.

Example: I just bought a 15′  2-man ladder treestand that normally sells for at least $179 for only $49!  Actually… it was such a great deal, I bought two of them.  The first response from several people was that I would then have to buy harnesses for it and they could cost $99 each.  Nope!  It came with 2 harnesses!  I’ve already put one together and it seems to be a pretty descent stand.  After next hunting season, I’ll have to do an update on how I liked hunting in it and how it’s holding up.

Anyway… This is a great example of the deals you can get when you simply buy off-season.  The dangerous part is…. now I’m excited to see what other great deals I can find now for next hunting season.  Don’t tell my husband!

I don’t want to get too into posting other people’s articles.  But every now and then I run across an article that is just too good to pass up.

10 Ways To Stronger Rifle Field Shooting Positions

By Shawn Carlock

After having spent years in the hunting fields, rifle competitions, and training arenas, I have noted that a high number of missed “field” shots in these conditions were the result of unstable or flat out poor shooting positions. Now, in the areas of hunting, rifle competition, and training, your field shooting position will often be far from ideal. However, there are things you can do to raise your first round hit percentage by improving your shooting position.

1. Get your rifle as close to the ground as possible. The higher your body and your rifle are up in the air, the less stable you typically are. Not all field positions allow you to be right on the dirt, but be there whenever you can. Even if you do not use a bipod on your rifle, simply being prone and unsupported is a better position than sitting, kneeling, or leaning against a tree. The closer you and your rifle are to the dirt, the more stable you will be. Now, getting low may not always be possible, so be prepared for other unique field shooting positions, but try to stay low whenever possible.

Accidents and injuries happen and when we are out in the wilderness hunting and help is not right around the corner, it becomes particularly important to have the right tools for handling injuries and know what to do with them.

Meet Dr. Julia Heinz.  She lives in Alaska and has been hunting all her life.  She’s put together a really nice article, OutdoorMed: Wilderness Aid, that is simple and easy to understand.  She shows what you need to put in your emergency kit and how to use these items.

I love that Julia is BOTH a doctor and a hunter.  She seems like an awesome person and her website is definitely worth checking out: WomenHuntingAlaska.com.  Check it out!!

Happy Hunting!

shooting 01When it comes to learning, games and interactive media are wonderful!  Computers and the internet have made learning many new things fun rather than grueling.  Hunting education and safety are now easier than ever as well as fun!

When hunting, we tend to get excited when we have an animal in our sights.  But just because they’re in your sights doesn’t mean you should pull the trigger.  When IS the correct time to pull the trigger?  What is a good angle and what is a bad angle?  If you pull the trigger, is the animal going to fall down dead because it was a good shot, or is it going to run away hurt?

The interactive game, Shoot or Don’t Shoot, is a good way to learn if you should shoot or not shoot a deer depending on the angle it is at or what is between you and the deer.  Brought to you buy the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, this is a wonderful interactive learning exercise that is very educational and useable.

Shoot or Don’t Shoot
