Pro Membership Update: Steve Jones Backcountry Hunts

By Shane Chuning My first thoughts when thinking of west Texas is flat country. Not much in the way of scenery you might say, at least not what I am used to. All the areas I have ever been to in western Texas have been flat with mesquite, cactus and stickers as far as the eye can see. Well, this road trip had the makings to be exactly the terrain I was accustomed to, while traveling from Utah to Marfa, Texas, to meet up with the Pro Membership winner for a Texas aoudad hunt. After arriving in Marfa, the...

Bass Fishing Roundup

By Chad LaChance The Bassmaster Classic is the most prestigious tournament in fresh water fishing. It’s a three-day event held on the country’s best bass lakes each spring, where 53 anglers compete for the $300,000 first prize and title of World Champion. Television and social media cover the event for anglers not lucky enough to attend in person and this year’s event drew almost 200,000 visitors to Houston’s Lake Conroe. Due to the large numbers in attendance, the Classic Expo has grown into the largest fishing consumer show in the country, with 300,000 square feet of pure bass fishing...

Pathfinder Survival: The 10 C’s of Survival Part 5: Cordage

One thing that is an undeniable truth when practicing bushcraft or working outdoors, is cordages of some type will eventually be needed.

It could be used to wrap the handle or repair the handle of a tool like a knife. Making a primitive friction fire by bow and drill is impossible without strong cordage....

Video Product Review: Green Mountain Grills’ Accessories

I have been using my Green Mountain Grills smoker for a year now without a hiccup. It is extremely hard to mess things up when cooking on it, as it preserves the moisture content within the foods you’re cooking. This year, the focus is on their accessories to go with their popular grills. One of the biggest additions that stood out to me personally is the Wood-Fired Pizza Oven. This literally looks like a miniature Brick House Wood-Fired Pizza Oven. Other than size, the only difference is the all stainless steel construction that will hold up for many years...

Video Product Review: Swarovski X5(i) Riflescope

Long range shooting is definitely more than just a fad. Whether punching paper, banging steel or putting the crosshairs on that trophy of a lifetime, you must see the target before you can successfully connect when we are talking about long range. Making the correct adjustments to elevation and windage are extremely precise when you are talking about taking a shot at 800 plus yards. Being off by a couple of inches at 100 yards isn’t a big deal, but that same error at 800 yards will put you 16” off target and be a miss or possibly result...
