Visiting Scotland, especially its historic Highlands, has been a lifelong pursuit of mine that has finally come to fruition recently. My son, Josh, and I had planned a five-day deer hunt with International Adventures, and my wife, Ginny, was coming as a non-hunter.

Our plan was to arrive in Edinburgh three days early to enjoy the local sites before the hunt, then return to Edinburgh after the hunt for two more days of sightseeing before returning home. It was a great way to not be rushed to reach the hunting area, as well as catch the flight home. Believe me, folks, when I say five days in Edinburgh has barely scratched the surface of things to do and see.


It was with great anticipation that we boarded our jet in Detroit and took a two-hour flight to Boston, followed by a five-hour flight, overnight in our time, to Edinburgh. It was pretty neat to cross the schedules and go from night to day, landing in Edinburgh at 8am. Getting a taxi from the airport was a breeze, and we were soon at our hotel, the Holiday Inn Express – Royal Mile. Despite the jet lag, we were there to enjoy the view, and we walked a few blocks (everything is up or down in Edinburgh) down a narrow, cobbled street next to the hotel and quickly reached the “ Royal Mile”, which is a bustling street lined with shops, restaurants and bars that leads to historic Edinburgh Castle in full view.

One of our first ventures was to take a ride on a double-decker bus, followed by dining, browsing, and shopping. Having a strong Scottish heritage, I had a desire to buy a real kilt in the Weir Clan Tartan of my ancestors. According to Ginny, however, the world wasn’t ready for me to walk around in a kilt. But it looks like pretty comfortable outerwear for me, and I soon found myself in a custom kilt shop.

The store owner listed the Weir Clan Tartan in a special thick book and let me know that although it was not in stock he could order it. When I asked for the cost, he said it was 850 pounds (about $1,000), and I thanked him and bought a Harris Tweed cap instead, which I wore on my hunt with deer. Well, folks, I am, after all, a frugal Scotsman, and I guess the world really wasn’t ready to see me hunting in a kilt and knee-high rubber Muck boots!

We would take a guided walking tour of Edinburgh Castle, which is quite a formidable fortress, and it’s easy to see why it was never conquered. We also enjoyed the National Museum of Scotland, where you can spend a whole day without seeing everything.

In no time, it seems, we were on the bus (which was also used for the tours) provided by International Adventures for a scenic three-hour ride through the Highlands to our destination, Loch Kinord. Hotel in the small town of Dinnet. This is an old hotel which has been completely renovated and offers excellent food (prepared by a chef) and accommodation in a calm and serene setting. The interior of the hotel featured many tasteful Scottish accents, including rugs, curtains and even quilts, providing a very pleasant Scottish atmosphere.

It is no coincidence that many hunters also like to fish. To be successful, both fishing and hunting require many similar traits: patience, ingenuity, high motivation, and many more. I consider myself a dedicated hunter, although I am not always successful, I devote a lot of time and effort to my endeavors. Once summer arrives, the various hunting seasons of fall and spring are finally over; although there may be some overlap in my hunting and fishing, at this time of year it is time to focus on fishing for me. In order to transmit the same fire and the same motivation to summer fishing, it takes some know-how and some thought. Here are some hunting lessons that can be carried over from your deer stand to your fishing boat this year.

Be where the fish want to be

It’s pretty safe to say that if you’re hunting in an area that doesn’t have a lot of game, you’re not going to see much on your hunt. Think about reason. For example, what would make an area deer-free? Lack of food, poor litter cover, or heavy human interference can all deter deer. The same can be said for fish.

A large lake will have fish everywhere, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are evenly dispersed and that every 100 cubic feet of water have equal amounts of fish. That would be silly. Fish will be in pockets of the lake and different things will attract or deter fish to and from certain areas.

Treat fishing like hunting in this situation. You may need to cover a lot of water early and “search” to find where the fish are. Once you find the highest concentrations, focus your efforts there.

Patience landed the big

salto lake

There is no way to have a long and successful career in the outdoors without developing patience. Patience is the essence of hunting and fishing. Patience is what can make a long day pay off in the blink of an eye. Sitting in a deer stand from daylight until dark feels like the longest day of your life until that big buck pops out just at the end of the shooting light.

Patience is also appreciated in fishing. Take it from muskellunge anglers who love the old adage “The fish of 10,000 casts”. I don’t know about you, but if I had to throw 10,000 times to catch a bream, I would consider it a waste of time. But really, the idea is that it takes patience to land the prize, whether it’s a big fish or some kind of prize. You have to have the patience to hold on.

Some of the most successful hunters and anglers are those who are patient. Patience is definitely a learned and painful trait for some to learn. But once you learn that patience pays off, it becomes easier and easier to practice.

Take into account the seasons calendar

Large mouth against little mouth

Conditions during different hunting seasons such as deer, duck and turkey change throughout the year. What deer or turkeys are doing at the start of the season changes drastically at the end. Migration patterns and the influx of fresh birds change the conditions of a duck season. The thing is, you have to be prepared to adapt to the time of the season.

Fish are similar in this respect, as they live at different depths and react differently at different times of the year. Much of what triggers the change in fish behavior is water temperature and changes in daylight hours, so it’s easier to identify the transition from rut in November for white-tailed deer. .

All this to say that you can’t fish the same way all year round, just as you can’t hunt the same way all season long. Different baits and presentations are guaranteed to follow the changing season. You wouldn’t necessarily fish surface lures when the fish are deep in the water column. Do yourself a favor and research what the fish are doing when you can make the appropriate choices.

Hide from the fish like you hide from the game

Travis Smola

This point may seem obvious and silly at the same time. You must hide from the game to increase your chances of success. It is a given. If a deer can easily see you, it won’t hang around long, and don’t even get me started on the turkeys.

Believe it or not, fish can often react differently to a bait if they can see you. Clear water conditions and sunny skies can easily guide you in close quarters fishing situations. Some professional anglers have mitigated this with boat placement and even clothing selection.

On those clear, sunny days, try to stay out of the line of sight of fish. Many pros also recommend light-colored peach shirts and other clothing to help blend in with the skies and break up your hard figure. It seems off the beaten path, but hey, a good angler should take advantage of all the benefits.

Strange parallels

We often think of fishing and hunting as completely different, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Both require dedication and discipline, and not to mention they’re both incredibly fun and satisfying. The parallels are troubling, and what often makes a good hunter also makes a good fisherman. If you want to be a better fisherman, consider some of the lessons you’ve learned while hunting.

BUFFALO – With just one year and one change to complete his five-year enlistment with the United States Marine Corps, Cpl. Seth Rasmuson had started making plans for his post-military life.

He was married to his high school sweetheart, and together the couple had a toddler son. Now the trio were planning civilian life.

“I don’t know if he had quite made up his mind, but he was thinking about something in aviation,” said his father, Curtis Rasmuson. “You know, he liked to fly.”

Cpl. Rasmuson, Buffalo High School Class of 2019, was among five Marines killed when an Osprey plane crashed in southern California on June 8. He was 21 years old.

Two pilots were also killed, Capt. Nicholas P. Losapio, 31, of Rockingham, New Hampshire, and Capt. John J. Sax, 33, of Placer, Calif., and two other tiltrotor crew chiefs, the cap. Nathan E. Carlson, 21, of Winnebago, Ill., and Lance Cpl. Evan A. Strickland, 19, of Valencia, New Mexico.

According to a Marine Corps statement, the Marines were assigned to Marine Aircraft Group 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing at Camp Pendleton. Their MV-22B Osprey crashed during a training exercise in Southern California. The accident is still under investigation.

“We mourn the loss of our Marines in this tragic misadventure,” Maj. Gen. Bradford Gering, commanding general of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to their families and friends as they deal with this tragedy.”

Cpl. Rasmuson spent most of his childhood in Buffalo, Curtis Rasmuson said. He enjoyed big game hunting, fishing, off-road biking around town with his friend, and playing baseball and hockey.

“A lot of what we did as a family was outdoors,” Curtis Rasmuson said. “We hunted a lot, and honestly one of his favorite things was elk hunting and deer hunting. He liked to go fishing, even though every time we went fishing, he was the one who got discouraged the most because he didn’t catch any fish. We went camping and our family did some spring break in Florida and loved the ocean.

His childhood friend and baseball teammate Christian Rhoads remembered Rasmuson as “the kind of person who could always put a smile on your face no matter the circumstances”. The two enjoyed hunting and fishing together, even when they were skunking.

Rasmuson knew from a young age that he wanted to join the US Marine Corps, Curtis Rasmuson said.

“He knew pretty early on, I mean, probably seventh or eighth grade somewhere in there, that he was going to come in and really started talking about the Marines,” Curtis Rasmuson said. “And you know, at that point we thought, ‘We’ll see.’ At that age, they change their minds. But he hasn’t changed his mind.”

At the end of his first semester of high school, Cpl. Rasmuson had accumulated enough credits to complete his high school diploma early.

He graduated from high school in December 2018, turned 18 in February 2019, and was sent to bootcamp in March 2019.

A team leader, Cpl. Rasmuson served an overseas deployment. During his service, he was awarded the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and a Sea Service Deployment Ribbon.

In the spring of 2020, Cape. Ramuson married his high school girlfriend, Avery Burtenshaw, in a small ceremony in Buffalo. Their son, Reed, was born in October 2021.

Cpl. Rasmuson, Avery and Reed were back in Buffalo in May for Rasmuson’s brother’s high school graduation.

“He went fishing one day with his brother, we played with the babies, most of the time we just hung out,” Curtis Rasmuson said. “Time has passed too quickly, I know that. I think he thought being a father was the best thing ever.

The family will hold a funeral in Buffalo on a date to be announced. According to his wishes, cap. Rasmuson will be buried in Little Dane Cemetery in Saint Onge, South Dakota.

A GoFundMe account has been created for the benefit of Cpl. Rasmuson’s wife and son. Donations can be made online through GoFundMe.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is seeking comments on the extent of permitted hunting opportunities in the new Bad Rock Canyon Wildlife Management Area near Columbia Falls.

In late 2021, FWP acquired the 772 acre property along the Flathead River. As a WMA that protects the big game winter range, the site is closed in the winter and open from May 15 to November 1. 30. The property is open for hunting, but FWP is asking for comments on a variety of options.

The alternative proposed by FWP would manage opportunities with a preference for young hunters. Access would be granted by random draw for a one-day reservation for a single group of up to three people, and 50% of hunting days would be reserved for apprentices and young hunters. The archery season would allow access to any age group of hunters by lottery for a period of one week. Other limitations would apply.

Other alternatives include maintaining the exclusive youth-only opportunities that were in place when the land was previously privately owned, or opening the WMA up to hunting by the general public without any age or overhead restrictions. beyond standard hunting season structures and rules.

FWP is seeking comments on a draft environmental assessment that details these alternatives. The EA can be viewed online at https://fwp.mt.gov/news/public-notices or at any FWP office. The deadline for commenting is June 27, 2022 at 5 p.m. Comments can be mailed to Stevie Burton, Montana FWP, 490 N. Meridian, Kalispell, MT 59901, or emailed to stevie.burton@mt.gov.

Using hunt maps for spotting can be the difference between finding your targeted game and watching it get away. Since all maps are somewhat different in their use, no one map will suit all purposes for every hunting or recon mission. We’re not going to try to make this a “card usage 101” piece of information, just try to give you an idea of ​​how to use what you might have on hand and key things to look for . Since topographic maps have contour lines that show elevation changes, it’s often just a matter of finding the elevation change distance between these lines, based on the scale of the map. They are quite good at surveying smaller areas for the purpose of planning a reconnaissance trip.

Hunting maps primarily show topography, but also include roads, trails, water systems such as rivers, streams, lakes and ponds, property lines, and sometimes even such detailed features as property boundaries. trees. The value of this type of information for hunters is obvious. Land Management Office (BLM) are among the best use maps for hunters and even shooting enthusiasts since “more than 99% of the lands managed by the BLM are open to hunting, fishing and recreational shooting”. BLM maps can be particularly useful for hunters in locating new hunting and reconnaissance areas, due to the smaller scale of these maps. They can be used to find new available hunting areas on public lands. It is easier to determine where the natural funnels caused by rocks, rivers and lakes are, where possible food sources are, and the best places to ambush game.

Along the same lines, a simple and effective resource for viewing aerial imagery is to use Google Earth. Although they can vary greatly in scale and detail, the view from above of an area can make the difference in seeing everything from vegetation to parks and even campgrounds that may be nearby. We especially like Google to spot possible funnels and sleeping areas. In some places, the satellite views are detailed enough that you can spot individual deer trails. If an area has Google marked trails, you can estimate hiking times by right-clicking, selecting “routes from here” and then selecting another point using the same method. Just click on “routes to here”. You may need to select “walk” from the icon in the top left of the screen for it to show an estimate of the hiking time. It’s not perfect, but it will give a rough idea. In some areas it will even give you some elevation loss or gain along the route.

Whichever map you choose, they each have their pros and cons, but having more than one available to you means a better understanding of what you’re seeing, especially if the map has been properly updated. We strongly recommend that you use all the resources available to you. Pay special attention to the scale which is usually found in the right or left corners of each card. This will help you estimate the distance to that lonely waterhole, or the height of that ridge blocking access to a key litter area.

E-scouting

Hunting cards for scouting

on X Hunt

We’ve already talked about Google, which is a great digital scouting tool. However, there are plenty of great free hunting apps out there, as well as some good paid services. We can recommend onX Hunt and HuntWise. One of the best uses of these apps is to find public hunting lands and especially the boundaries of public lands, because unfortunately these things aren’t always as clearly defined as we would like. This is especially true for western states, and situations arise every year where otherwise law-abiding hunters find themselves in hot water because they didn’t know where the unmarked lines were. The nice thing about some services like onX Hunt is that they sometimes provide hunting maps with landowner names and boundaries with nationwide topographic and aerial imagery. Another handy feature is saving maps for offline use, as the best hunting sites often lack cell signal. These apps will also often track your route, elevation, and location. You can also map pit locations, track cameras and even water sources.

Plan your reconnaissance trip

Hunting cards for scouting

Studying maps and satellite images of a hunting area can only get you so far. Once you have the right maps, and depending on your knowledge of the area, you should be prepared to inspect what you find on the maps in person. Paper maps are available at BLM Field Offices, but we highly recommend using a GPS or the apps mentioned above to keep an eye on land boundaries as you explore. Keep track of important points of interest as they will be useful in areas where cell service is limited or non-existent.

White-tailed deer hunters will find that they can use maps to plan certain wind directions due to their home region and natural wind sources. This way you can plan to spot food sources or sleeping areas in an area based on your own walking direction. This will help you avoid spooking deer that you are not ready to hunt. In-person scouting allows you to measure and confirm the distances of your walking routes, the exact width of a valley, and the location of the nearest access point. It doesn’t hurt to check cell coverage before you go to determine if you’ll need to use offline maps in remote hunting areas.

Finally, a few safety precautions. Make sure your technology is working properly and your cell phone is fully charged. Take clothes and shoes suitable for the conditions. Above all, remember to let someone know where you are going and when you expect to return.

learning curve

Success in big game hunting isn’t just about maps, spotting, or wind direction. Think of cards as just one tool in your arsenal, but not the only one. We’re so used to having everything at our fingertips now that it might take a bit of work to really understand the basic reality of what our ancestors used to explore the very remote areas we all wanted to hunt. Our dads and grandpas didn’t have Google maps to use, they based their hunting experience on effort and desire. Those who had access to good quality paper maps are the ones who became the best hunters and what we now call the outfitters. Anyone who wants to become a better hunter must establish themselves as someone who is willing to take the next step towards hunting success. None of us need to become a professional card reader, just that we need to take the time to become better acquainted with a tool that has been around for many years: the hunting card.

Have you purchased your new fishing and/or hunting licenses yet?

Please know that your current licenses expire at the end of June, and because our state legislature (Law 356) has passed a number of changes in the licensing structure, here’s your chance to avoid surprises when you get your new licenses.

The new licenses are on sale now, and Wildlife and Fisheries has set up a line on its website — www.louisiana.gov — under “Understanding our new license fee changes.”

Roadside crabbers are among the main changes. You will need a $5 Hook and Line License “for any individual fishing without a mechanical reel or crabbing with a string or set net”. Before this new law, this activity did not require any license.

The LDWF’s rationale for this decision was explained in the agency’s explanation: “Without a licensing requirement, it was difficult for the Fisheries Board to determine how many people were involved in this fishery and the impact of the harvest on the crab population”.

Oh, and will that change?

People with a saltwater fishing license can use it to catch crabs, but you must purchase a freshwater fishing license to have a saltwater license.

And, the saltwater permit allows you to have 10 “recreational” crab pots properly marked/labeled, which is a departure from the decades old regulation to have a separate crab pot permit.

Additionally, if you are taking crabs from a wildlife management area, refuge, or LDWF conservation area, you must purchase a WMA access permit and hold a self-cleaning permit without costs.

Crabeaters are still allowed a limit of 12 dozen crabs per day.

With that explained, here’s a quick rundown of other changes to the 2022-2023 licensing structure (and beyond):

  • Hunters and anglers in Louisiana now have 365-day licenses. This means that all recreational licenses obtained after June 1 of this year will be valid for 365 days from the date of purchase and will no longer have the period from July 1 to June 30.
  • The LDWF offers an automatic license renewal option for online license sales. Athletes will need to upload payment information to the agency’s system and choose to have their license(s) automatically renewed.
  • A wonderful addition is the $4 Disabled Veteran’s Permit which became available June 1st. The $4 fee is waived thanks to donations made to the program by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation.
  • Hunters 17 and under will need a license and corresponding tags to “actively” hunt deer and turkeys. The new requirement extends to lottery or trapping hunts. A lifetime license is also eligible.

But, if the youngster is a “spectator” and not actively hunting deer and/or turkey, he does not need a permit. This exemption applies to young people hunting any other game.

  • The only thing this new law did was remove the long list of fishing activities that required a license.

Now, the new Basic Recreational Fishing License will cover “all legal means/gear” to catch freshwater species, including pots, seines, slat traps, trammel nets, cast nets less than 8 feet, 6 inches, metal nets, pipes, buckets, drums, tires, cans, crayfish traps and crayfish nets.

  • And, the new saltwater residential fishing licenses include “all legal means/equipment” to catch saltwater species like up to 10 crab pots, a shrimp trawl 25 feet or less, and pinch Oysters.
  • For deer hunters, a consolidated licensing structure removes the old big game license and institutes a deer license – you still need a basic hunting license – and the new license includes archery and primitive weapons as well as labels.
  • Turkey hunters will not need basic, big game, and state wild turkey licenses. The new ordinance requires turkey hunters to have a basic license and a turkey license with tags.
  • You need a $20 annual permit (residents and non-residents) or $5 per day to access the 1.5 million acres of the WMA system for boating, hiking, birds and berry picking as well as hunting and fishing.

It also extends to camping: Already in effect (June 1), a $7-per-night WMA camping permit is good for up to five adults camping together. You also need a WMA access permit. All funds generated from permit fees will be dedicated to the management of the WMAs. Youth 17 and under are not required to have a camping permit.

The new law directs that these funds be dedicated to the management of the WMA.

An exemption allows no fees on WMAs for ages 17 and under, as well as Sportsman Paradise licensees and lifetime licensees.

Next week

The LDWF licensing section will be closed June 20-24 for walk-in service at state headquarters on Quail Drive in Baton Rouge. That’s because the section has to deal with “a backlog of mailed and emailed requests.”

Licenses can still be purchased online during this time at louisianaoutdoors.com.

Commercial fishers, including charter boat operators, will be allowed to complete applications during this time and retain the application to serve as a license until June 27 until they can have the application filed.

For boat trailers

Beginning June 27 and several Mondays thereafter, workers from the Departments of Motor Vehicles and State Revenue will be at state headquarters to handle the registration of vessels and boat trailers and to pay the taxes that may be due.

And remember

The check you can make when renewing your licenses for the statewide Hunters for the Hungry program. And the contribution helps defray the costs of bringing venison and fish to those in need throughout our state.

Just last week, H4H collected 800 pounds of fish fillets in Venice and shipped the fish to the New Orleans mission through the Second Harvest Food Bank.

For more information, send an e-mail to the director of H4H Julie Grunwald: julie@h4hla.org.

The 9mm Luger may be the king of modern handgun cartridges, but it is far from the most powerful. If you want to start handgun hunting or want something with a little extra juice for bear defense, the 10mm Auto and .45 Auto are two popular options.

In a first for this series, we run these two semi-automatic handgun cartridges through the Caliber Battle gauntlet. These might not be the best cartridges for handgun hunting or bear defense, but if you have to choose, which is better?

Ballistic

If you did a random poll of gun owners, the majority would probably say the 10mm is more powerful than the .45. In this case, the masses are more or less correct. The average 10mm cartridge will launch a 180-200 grain bullet faster than the average .45 Auto. (Note: The .45 Auto and the .45 ACP are the same cartridge. “ACP” stands for “Automatic Colt Pistol”.)

But modern powder and bullets allow ammo makers to power older ones like the .45, and some loads can compete with the faster 10mm. This .45 Auto from Federal, for example, launches a 205-grain bullet at 970 feet per second (fps) for an energy output of 428 foot-pounds (ft.-lbs.) at the muzzle. This 10mm Auto is also marketed for personal defense and fires a 180 grain bullet at 1,030 fps for a power output of 424 ft-lbs.

The .45 can compete with the 10mm in some matchups, but the 10mm has a higher ceiling. In “Cartridges of the World”, Frank C. Barnes lists the hottest 10mm as producing 680 foot-pounds. of energy, 146 ft-lbs. more than the most hard-hitting .45. The .45 Auto linked above seems to be Federal’s most powerful option (428 ft-lbs), but the company’s hottest 10mm is this 180-grain load designed for hunting, which produces 650 ft-lb. energy to the muzzle.

It’s also worth pointing out that “stopping power” is not limited to projectile energy. A bullet must travel fast enough to reach an animal‘s vital area, and the 10mm velocity helps ensure that this happens.

You don’t have to be a handloader or shoot +P+ loads to find a .45 that can compete with a 10mm. But at the higher end of each cartridge’s range, the 10mm Auto hits harder than the .45 Auto.

Tirability

If you’re familiar with our Caliber Battles rifle, you’ll know that we define “shooting capacity” as recoil impulse plus cartridge cost and availability. This metric is even more important when considering handgun cartridges.

Your shoulder won’t hurt firing either of these rounds in pistol caliber rifle setups, but handgun recoil is harder to control than rifle recoil. It’s also more subjective. Some people claim to enjoy shooting wrist-breaking cartridges while others are incredibly sensitive to the pop and rattle of a handgun’s report.

Anticipating palm pain may cause some flinch when gun hunting, but at least one whitetail deer won’t turn around and eat you. For bear defense, getting multiple shots on target quickly can mean the difference between life and death. This is partly why MeatEater’s Clay Newcomb chose 9mm over .45 and .44 Magnum. Controlling the kick of a handgun can be tricky, and two shots with a smaller caliber are almost always better than one shot with a bigger one.

It’s also worth mentioning that handguns that are painful to shoot aren’t fun to practice. Your bear defense weapon won’t do you much good if you’ve only fired a few bullets because it hurts your hand too much.

In this category, the .45 Auto beats the 10mm hands down, at least on paper. According to Chuck Hawks recoil chart, a 10mm Auto firing a 180 grain bullet at 1,295 fps kicks with 11.4 foot-pounds. of force while most .45 Auto options land within 7-8 ft-lbs. interval.

Of course, this comparison is highly dependent on the weight of the handgun. A heavy 10mm handgun can dampen the recoil impulse and can feel like a .45 Auto from a lighter pistol. But since every action should produce an equal and opposite reaction, a 10mm will generally be harder to control than a .45 for most people.

The .45 also beats the 10mm in cost and ammo availability. The .45 has been around since 1905, has been adopted by militaries around the world, and is commercially popular. These advantages mean that .45 cartridges will be easier to find and available in cheaper bulk options from nearly every major manufacturer.

Federal, for example, offers 27 varieties of .45 Auto, the cheapest of which is $0.75 per round. In 10mm, they offer nine options, the cheapest of which is $1.80 per round.

Versatility

The .45 Auto wasn’t on our list of handgun hunting calibers, and its curved trajectory certainly limits its effective range (it drops about 5 inches at 75 yards but a full foot at 100 yards). But this does not mean that it is incapable of taking small and medium game. Modern soft-point and hollow-point bullets increase efficiency, and Ryan Callaghan of MeatEater once told me about an outfitter he knew who had taken a nice white-tailed deer with the .45 handgun. who was “clicking in the door of his truck”.

The .45 Auto can also be an effective bear defense cartridge. In a recent survey of 93 bear attacks, the .45 Auto was used eight times (tied for second), and all defensive attempts were successful.

Still, it’s hard to deny that, like ballistics, the 10mm Auto has a higher ceiling for bear hunting and defense. Superior ballistics allow the 10mm to take larger animals than the .45 Auto or to take animals of the same size more reliably.

Federal does not offer any .45 autoloads for hunting, but three of its nine 10mm autoload options are marketed for hunting and bear defense. This 180-grain load uses a jacketed Bear Claw bullet designed to take medium-sized game like white-tailed deer; this 200-grain option includes a Swift A-Frame bullet for deer-sized animals; and this 200-grain cartridge uses a polymer-jacketed hard molded bullet specifically designed for bear defense.

When I spoke with Todd Orr, a prolific handgun hunter from Montana, he assured me that 10mm is good for hogs, deer, antelope, and bears. He even caught an elk with one, although he advised to keep shots within 100 yards.

And the winner is…

Skill and comfort matter more in pistol shooting than in rifle shooting. A brand new hunter who can hit a target with a rifle might have a really hard time with a handgun. That’s why, unless you’re looking for big game like elk, it’ll be better to use a .45 Auto you’re comfortable with than a 10mm you just bought at the store.

But if you’re new to both calibers, the 10mm’s superior ballistics and versatility make up for its loss in the shot capability category. Most gun makers offer 10mm handguns, so you won’t have too much trouble finding a gun you can comfortably shoot. Some are also optics ready, allowing you to easily mount a red dot for more accurate shots.

The .45 Auto may have won a world war, but for hunting and bear defense the 10mm is the better option.

Overall winner: 10mm automatic

Seth Feroce responds to the backlash of the bear hunt.

Outspoken Bodybuilder Seth Fierce responds to the backlash he received after posting about his recent bear hunt. The veteran bodybuilder and rugged outdoorsman has addressed followers who have spoken out against his recent hunt.

Not everyone will agree with people’s food consumption methods. We’ve all seen different movements emerge over the past few years dictating the best ways and approaches to eating. Some have denounced the consumption of meat as well as hunting. This brings us to Seth Feroce.

It seems brash and outspoken bodybuilder Seth Feroce has come under fire from his own fans. The controversial bodybuilder. He recently posted a picture of himself on social media after chasing a bear much to the chagrin of many of his followers. In the photo, you can see Feroce holding the bear’s paw in triumph. This display apparently irritated a lot of people and now, for Feroce, it’s getting the backlash.

But Seth Feroce is not one to take matters into his own hands. Although he can deal with the backlash, Feroce does not back down. In fact, the bodybuilder doubled down, posting another set of photos highlighting the recent hunt. Feroce went on to explain that he hunted the animal, not for sport, but to use it as food. As such, Feroce has made it a point to call out those in his audience who eat meat upset by this display. The bodybuilder basically called them hypocrites for criticizing his fighter when they’re doing the exact same thing without the dirty work involved.

My first big game.
Black Bear in Idaho

It was a bucket list item for me.
Something I had dreamed of doing for years.

To hunt, kill, skin, divide, wrap and eat!

I’ve always loved watching nature shows, hunting shows, and recently in the last year, hunting shows are all I’ve watched.
And I wanted to make hunting and gathering a part of my life.

I wanted the feelings of it all.
Kill an animal. Strip it. Cut the meat from the body. I wrap it on my back. Eating meat at camp with my friends. And talk about experience, feelings and emotions and the beauty of nature.
Then take that meat home to feed my family.
The meat that I killed, that I cut up, that I harvested and carried away from the mountains.

So my friend @beyond_the_backcountry showed me his part of the West!
And make it happen!

And He did.
I killed a BIG black bear. I skinned him. He tore him apart. I packed it up a mountain and ate it at camp with my friends.
And I’ll bring home the meat for my family.

I’m proud of it !
And I know some may not like that.
And it’s good.
Maybe some just need a little education and a bit of perspective.
So here’s a little piece.

Black bears are not endangered, they are heavily hunted in the west.
They must be managed. Population control is important for all other game animals, moose, deer, etc.
Black bears and other predators will kill the population of elk, deer and other animals. In fact, male bears will kill female cubs just so they can mate with them. Savage!
Nature is intense.

So hunters help control that, by hunting them, so that we can hunt and harvest those other animals.

Also, the bears are delicious! You can eat them.
The back strap on the mountain was awesome.
I’m going to make bear sausages and bear burger with the rest of my meat.
The fat will be melted for cooking. Bear tallow!
This is the pinnacle of quality.

I loved everything about it!

It’s what we humans have been doing forever and it will continue to be a big part of my life.

It’s clear that Seth Feroce is passionate about hunting and wouldn’t lightly hunt any animal that crosses his path. While there may be people who object to hunting animals for food, if you eat meat yourself, that’s a bit debatable. Feroce plans to use all parts of the bear and not waste it. This shows that he at least respects the animal enough to use it appropriately.

What do you think of Seth Feroce and his recent bear hunt?

Doug Leier: A Few Reminders As North Dakota Deer Lottery Deadline Approaches – Jamestown Sun https://peet-corso.cz/doug-leier-a-few-reminders-as-north-dakota-deer-lottery-deadline-approaches-jamestown-sun/ Wed, 01 Jun 2022 05:00:00 +0000 https://peet-corso.cz/doug-leier-a-few-reminders-as-north-dakota-deer-lottery-deadline-approaches-jamestown-sun/ One of the most important aspects of drawing a North Dakota regular season lottery license is to apply before the deadline.

One of the most important aspects of drawing a North Dakota regular season lottery license is to apply before the deadline. Sounds simple enough, right? Our Licensing Officers could certainly entertain you with the many applications arriving in the last 24-48 hours. Waiting until the last minute doesn’t improve the odds of anything other than forgetting and missing the June 8 deadline. Analyzing past application data and weighing the odds of pulling a favorite tag in a unit with your bonus points won’t help if you miss the deadline.

2022 North Dakota Deer Season Details:

The 2022 North Dakota gun season opens Nov. 4 at noon and runs through Nov. 20.

● The 2022 North Dakota deer season has 64,200 licenses available to hunters, down 8,000 from last year.

● In total, the number of licenses with any antlers decreased by 150 compared to last year, those without antlers by 350, white-tailed deer with antlers by 4,150 and white-tailed deer without antlers by 3 700. Antlered mule deer licenses remained the same and antlerless mule deer licenses increased by 350.

● In addition, the number of muzzleloader licenses decreased by 168 and the number of restricted young mule deer licenses with antlers remained the same.

“Epizootic hemorrhagic disease has significantly reduced white-tailed deer numbers along the Missouri River and in parts of some western hunting units,” said Casey Anderson, wildlife chief for the Department of Game and Wildlife. the Peach. “As a result, licensing allocations in some units have been significantly reduced.”

A General Game and Habitat Permit is required when applying for a Deer Permit. If the applicant has not already purchased one for the 2022-23 season, the license will be added to their cart during checkout. The applicant has the option of being reimbursed for the General Game and Habitat Permit if their deer permit is not drawn.

Free applicants who have already applied online will automatically have their land description carried over to this year’s application. However, any changes to the land descriptions from last year’s application must be made before submitting the 2022 application.

Free entries received by the Deer Gun Lottery Application Deadline will qualify for an all-legal deer license. Per state law, free applications received after the deadline will be processed based on the remaining licenses after the lottery. Generally, only timber-free permits remain.

The total number of deer permits is determined by harvest rates, aerial surveys, depredation reports, hunter sightings, comments at advisory board meetings, and feedback from the public, landowners, and field staff of the ministry.

Additionally, hunters should also keep in mind the continued focus on chronic wasting disease:

● As stated in Chronic Wasting Disease Proclamation 2022-23, hunters harvesting a deer in Units 3A1, 3A2, 3B1, 3C, 3D1, 3E2, 3F2, 4B and 4C may not transport the whole carcass to the outside the unit, except hunters may transport the entire deer carcass between adjacent chronic wasting disease carcass restriction units.

● Also in the CWD proclamation, it is illegal for an individual to hunt big game with bait, or to place bait to attract big game for the purpose of hunting, in Deer Hunting Units 1, 2B, 3A1 , 3A2, 3A3, 3A4, 3B1, 3C, 3D1, 3D2, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2, 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D, 4E and 4F.

“Last fall, 26 deer were harvested during hunting season that tested positive for CWD, including three in new units,” Anderson said, while noting that they were 3C units, 3D1 and 3E2. “It has consequently changed deer management strategies in these units and the surrounding area.”

Plain, free, youth, and muzzle-loading deer gun applicants can apply online until midnight June 8, 2022, on the Department of Game and Fish’s website at gf .nd.gov.

2022 NBA Finals: Three reasons Celtics can beat Warriors, including Boston chasing Stephen Curry https://peet-corso.cz/2022-nba-finals-three-reasons-celtics-can-beat-warriors-including-boston-chasing-stephen-curry/ Mon, 30 May 2022 14:10:06 +0000 https://peet-corso.cz/2022-nba-finals-three-reasons-celtics-can-beat-warriors-including-boston-chasing-stephen-curry/ With the Boston Celtics winning Game 7 over the Miami Heat on Sunday, the 2022 NBA Finals game is set.

With the Boston Celtics winning Game 7 over the Miami Heat on Sunday, the 2022 NBA Finals game is set. The Celtics, seeded No. 2 in the East, face the Golden State Warriors, seeded No. 3 in the West.

Game 1 is scheduled for Thursday in San Francisco. The Warriors are favorites (-155 to +135 in Boston, according to Caesars Sportsbook), but I take the Celtics in seven. I think they’re a great match for Golden State. Here are three areas where the Celtics can work to their advantage to win the 2022 NBA championship.

1. Celtics switch vs. Warriors move

Not only is this Celtics defense arguably one of the best in modern history, but it’s perfectly suited to grapple with all of Golden State’s off-ball moves. Boston changes everything, making life difficult for Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole as they seek to shake off screens and misdirection. This was reflected in the numbers.

The Warriors aren’t a great game-hunting team, which is good because there really isn’t a weak link to hunt on Boston’s defense. It will be difficult for the Warriors to create consistent quality looks on the half court. Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Derrick White, Jaylen Brown, all of those guys can reasonably bother Curry in one-on-one situations, and Al Horford and Grant Williams defend well on the perimeter, so it doesn’t matter which game Curry or Poole end up in late situations. .

Golden State will want to operate early in the shot clock, but with the way Boston is recovering at shooters, a lot of possessions could drag on longer than the Warriors would like — how bad, Boston advantage.

And that’s to say nothing of Golden State’s propensity to turn the buck. Boston is going to put a lot of pressure on the ball. They will chase and double and retrieve and trade. They will grab and hold like Miami grabbed and held them. Will the Warriors be able to find enough space during the series to really get their shots going? In spurts, of course. But in the long run, I think Boston’s defense poses a lot of problems for Golden State.

2. Open season on Steph

While the Celtics don’t offer a weak defensive link for the Warriors to target (according to Payton Pritchard’s time in this series), Boston will go straight for Curry, and likely Poole as well.

Boston spent quite a bit of time researching favorite matchups against Miami, and the team found success. Golden State handled the situation well when Luka Doncic frequently targeted Curry in the final round with pick and rolls; they didn’t want to tip Curry on Doncic just like they won’t want to let him defend Tatum or Brown in the final so they had Curry show/hedge on Doncic just long enough to stop his momentum so the original defender could recover then that Curry was returning to another mission.

All those covers and wing braces digging into the traffic lanes will open up secondary shooters and playmakers for Boston, which is simply better equipped to punish Golden State in this regard than Dallas was. Jalen Brunson is no Brown, even taking into account Brown’s inability to dribble consistently at times. Smart, White, all these guys are going to make plays on the dribble if they consistently catch with leverage in their favor. Boston enters the paint with great success.

If Tatum, who was awesome creating shots for his teammates in Game 7, and Brown are able to use the attention they get to set up teammates for a clean look, the Warriors, who don’t like not double team, will have a dilemma on their hands asking Curry and/or Poole to keep straight.

3. Size matters

The Warriors have, statistically, been a better rebounding team than the Celtics in the playoffs, but look at the matchups. Golden State played a small Dallas team and a Memphis team that was without Steven Adams for half the series (when Adams played, he killed them on the glass). Boston had to deal with the Bucks and Heat, who are collapsing much harder than their small lineups would suggest.

In this game, the Celtics – with Horford and depending on the health of Robert Williams – can play bigger than Golden State, which got great play from Kevon Looney but will obviously get small with Draymond Green at five quite often. Curry, Poole and Gary Payton II, who are expected to return for this series, are all significantly smaller than Tatum and Brown, who will be able to shoot overhead when they enter these matchups.

If Looney has to play long minutes to keep Boston in check on the glass, that dulls Golden State’s offensive firepower, and really, how many minutes can Looney save against Horford and the two Williams over a seven-game series? ? Additionally, Horford will stretch Looney wide out of the paint in single lineups.

Draymond Green is going to fight, obviously, and Andrew Wiggins is a strong positional rebounder (as is Curry), and the Warriors are more than capable of defending or even winning the rebound battle in this game (offensive rebounding isn’t has never been harder to predict with all the long rebounds on 3-point shots).

But Boston, on paper, has a chance to assert some physical dominance on the boards (while understanding that it will try to balance the return in transition to locate Golden State’s shooters). And if so, the creation of consistent second-chance opportunities, combined with the size of the two-way perimeter Boston has, add up dramatically on a streak.
