Say you’re sighting-in your hunting rifle, firing 3-shot groups from the bench. It's going well. Your shots are grouping an inch or less. You shoot on, and every now and then a bullet strikes the target a couple inches to the left or right (or high or low) of your main point of impact. You start to get frustrated and think about moving the scope--Don't! As long as 2 bullet holes stay clustered within an inch, you’re in good shape. Any “flyers” were likely due to human error—you've shot too much and flinched a bit or maybe jerked the trigger and pulled the errant shot offline.

Finally, some good news from my home state. In a statement the NRA said: Thanks to Second Amendment supporters around the Commonwealth ceaselessly voicing their opposition to a sweeping gun ban, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 10-5 to reject House Bill 961 on February 17th. Bloomberg’s House majority in the General Assembly is not going to deliver their most coveted agenda item to their billionaire master. House Bill 961 was a comprehensive ban on many commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, suppressors, and standard capacity magazines. The original bill sought to impose a licensing and registration scheme for citizens who wish to keep affected firearms they lawfully owned prior to the ban, with felony penalties for noncompliance. It also broadly banned any part that could [...]

I’ll be bowhunting big bucks in the South in December? Weather-wise, which days should be best? Try to plan your hunts around cool, clear days with a north wind. “Down here, big bucks move the best on cool, bluebird days,” says Jimmy Riley, manager of Giles Island Plantation near Natchez, Mississippi. “We have lots of days when it’s warm and the wind blows out of the south.
