Hunting is by far the largest funding mechanism for wildlife, and the economic benefits go far beyond conservation.
By Shane Mahoney
Gifford Pinchot, first chief of the United States Forest Service and the twenty-eighth governor of Pennsylvania, famously declared, “Unless we practice conservation, those who come after us will have to pay the price of misery, degradation, and failure for the progress and prosperity of our day.”
While many of us now accept the truth in this, it is imperative we also recognize that conservation is not free. There is a price to pay for the management, protection, and enjoyment of our natural world. Wildlife abundance is no accident, and it isn’t free, either. Somebody, somewhere, pays the bills.READ MORE
Weatherby's new rifle for women is accurate, elegant, and fun to shoot.
by Diana Rupp
It’s not surprising to me that many of the women I know shoot Weatherby rifles. Their excellent quality and accuracy aside, Weatherby rifles are often built with Monte-Carlo-style stocks, which tend to fit women better than the more traditional straight stocks on many American rifles. Because women tend to have proportionally longer necks than men, female shooters tend to prefer a higher comb, especially on scoped rifles, since it allows for faster target acquisition.READ MORE

BookYourHunt.com lets you search for and compare prices on hunts all over the world.
When you book a flight, you probably use an online service such as Travelocity or Expedia to search for the best prices. You can find similar services for booking cruises and other types of vacations, but until now, no such thing has been available for the traveling hunter. While you can look up outfitters online, many of them don't post specific prices, making it hard to comparison shop, or even know if a particular hunt is within your price range.READ MORE
A new book by Craig Boddington shares the stories of people who have been on the receiving end of animal attacks.
Incidents of hunters, trackers, professional hunters, and innocent bystanders getting injured or killed by dangerous game animals crop up every year, and the trend toward hunters becoming the hunted seems to be on the increase.
Bears, both in Asia and North America, still take bites out of humans on a regular basis. In Africa, hardly a year goes by when at least one PH, tracker, or hunter gets killed by a Cape buffalo. Leopards have always been plentiful in Africa and are no less dangerous now than they were thirty years ago. Hippos and crocodiles may take the largest toll of all, so it pays to be cautious whenever you approach an African river.READ MORE
