By Rhett L Fletcher  I used to have some bad habits when it came to getting ready for hunting season. Like a lot of hunters I spent way more time worrying about my gear and accessories than getting my rifle ready. I’d go out the day before a hunt and fire off a couple of rounds downrange and call it good. Ready to go. Now I’m not saying this method doesn’t work, but it cost me a hell of a nice deer once, and that’s enough reason to figure out another system. It was early in the morning and frigid as hell and the buck I’d been watching for months, waiting for opening day was just about to cross the property line and step into my kill zone. The monster buck we called “the big ten” flinched as my first round went right over his back. Frustrated, I racked another one…

By Rhett L Fletcher  What makes a shotgun easier to shoot (while still being able to hit your target…)? Ever have a shotgun that you felt like you just couldn’t miss with and then you squeeze the trigger on one that looks really cool, but you can’t seem to hit the broad side of a barn? Here are a few factors that make a shotgun easier to shoot: 1) FIT If a shotgun doesn’t shoot where you look, you’re not likely to hit your target. A comb that’s too high usually means that you’re going to shoot right over the top of your target. A comb that’s too low is generally a lot easier to get used to.

By: Ryan Minehart In this article, I will give you step by step instructions on how to zero a rifle as well as personal experiences on how I zeroed my Browning XBolt Medallion Maple 30-06. First thing you need to do is install the scope onto the rifle. To do this you should first mount the base and rings on the scope. One thing I have heard and believe is splurge on a more expensive and sturdy mount so you know that your scope will be secured for many years of use. If you feel like you don’t need an expensive, sturdy mount, you may encounter more sighting problems down the road. I say this because down the line the cheaper mount can come loose and mess up your zero you previously set. Once you have mounted the base and rings, it’s time to mount the scope onto the rifle.…
