  2. June 2017 New Zealand Hunt

    Hunting red stag in New Zealand has always been on my bucket list. Soon, my dream of hunting in New Zealand was starting to be realized.
  3. Beartooth Wireless Communicator Review

    How great would it be to be able to turn your smartphone into a 2-way walkie-talkie with text and GPS location messaging, even when you don’t have any cellular reception?
  4. Box2Bench Targets: Right Idea, Right Time

    It's designed for load development, but even if you use it only as a normal shooting target it’s got 30 aiming points and it’s durable enough to be set up multiple times so you can track your own progress over multiple sessions.

  7. Effective Game Killing - Part 2

    The speed of incapacitation or what we call fast killing is one method for which the hunter is able to measure a cartridge’s effectiveness on game in comparison to other cartridges.
  8. Tikka T3 CTR 6.5 Creedmoor + Swarovski Z8i = One Fine Hunting Rig

    As a gun writer with many years under my belt, I have looked through a lot of scopes and it still amazes me how bright and clear the Swarovski optics are in any light conditions.
  9. What's In Len's Backpack?

    Which 51 items are in Len's backpack?
    By Len Backus

    A couple weeks ago I had my hunting stuff spread out on the floor in front of me as I organized for an upcoming annual DIY mule deer hunt in eastern Montana. I get so many questions from LRH members about what’s a good widget to use for whatever. Plus we have a constantly growing number of members who are learning about how to get into western state DIY hunting. So I decided then and there that when I returned from the hunt I would write...
  10. Len's Big Mule Deer Taken With The New LRR Mountain Rifle

    Len's Big Mule Deer Taken With The New LRR Mountain Rifle
    By Len Backus

    Three years ago I booked an LRH Group Deer Hunt with Robb Wiley of Non-Typical Outfitters for 2015. Three years is a long time to wait when you are relentlessly teased over the years with pictures of other big bucks taken by his clients in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Finally it was September of 2015.
    I had planned to hunt with my own rifle in the very popular new 28 Nosler cartridge but made a last minute change. In mid-summer...
  11. 7 Days in Eastern Cape South Africa

    My dad Floyd and my stepmother Janice had been to South Africa twice, and upon their return the second time in 2014 they said they were going back again in 2016. I had always thought that when my dad started going to Africa, it would be very special for me to join him on an African safari. So I told him that I definitely would be going with him and my stepmother in 2016.

    The toughest part about going was convincing my darling wife Sonja that I needed to go because not many people get a...
  12. Nightforce SHV 5-20x56 Rifle Scope With New Exposed Elevation Turret

    My introduction to Nightforce optics happened only several years ago as I first became addicted to long range hunting. I had recently found and delved into a world of information about long range shooting and hunting that I could have only dreamed of. At that point I had never even heard of Nightforce, and at the time local stores didn't even carry the brand.
  13. Prone Shooting Position

    Prone Shooting Position

    By Jim See

    Prone shooting from the bipod should be our most accurate and precise position, yet some of us suffer in this area. I still see the biggest mistakes in this position at rifle matches from some well rounded and experienced shooters. Most of these issues can be easily fixed by the individual with a little forethought and awareness in their practice.
    First I’m going to start with the conventional prone position that encompasses much of the very precision...

    King of 2 Miles 2017

    By Samantha D. Smitchko from Cutting Edge Bullets

    The 2017 King of 2 Miles match in Raton, New Mexico came to a wrap on Thursday, June 29. The 49 shooters were split in 2 groups across 2 days (27th and 28th) for first round qualifications.
    For the qualification rounds, each shooter was shooting at 3 targets: 1543yds, 1722yds, 1888yds, and 1953yds. The shooters had 5 shots at the first target and 3 at the following 3. If any of the targets are not hit with the allotted...
  15. Hunting High Country Mule Deer Bucks

    Hunting High Country Mule Deer Bucks

    By Allen Jones

    I had always dreamed of sheep hunting. I think I read everything Jack O’Connor wrote on the subject, and the thought of getting my sights on one of those keen eyed, curly horned mountain dwellers sometimes kept me awake at night. After moving to Colorado in 1975, I started sending in my application for the limited draw license. Finally, in 1987, my dream became a reality. The coveted tag arrived in the mail. But that story will have to...
