Longer Range & Tighter Patterns with Trulock Precision Hunter Chokes

1740

What hunter doesn’t want tighter and more consistent patterns, while at the same time extending the effective range of the shotgun? The Precision Hunter chokes from industry leader Trulock are custom-built extended tubes that do just that. An extended choke tube like the Precision Hunter offers a better pattern with fewer “holes” than a flush-mounted tube. The extended choke tube from Trulock also does a better job handling heavier payloads of shot and larger shot sizes. Pattern your shotgun with a Precision Hunter extended choke, and you will see that this choke tube will increase your effective barrel length while increasing muzzle velocity. Be Sociable!

vcsPRAsset_2454_121277_c2406def-e438-410f-8fab-4a827f9c1c37_0

There are several great reasons to add a Redhead® Pit Stop Layout Blind to your waterfowl hunting arsenal. One reason is you want to disappear when ducks or geese approach. It sounds simple. Yet the birds’ eyes are so keen, and pressured waterfowl become so wary, invisibility is a tall order. Besides blending flawlessly with the background, a good layout blind must be comfortable, rugged, lightweight, easily hidden, and versatile. The Pit Stop Blind meets every demand. At its core is a lightweight, collapsible steel frame. It deploys in seconds and folds to packable size just as quickly with no nuts, bolts, or pins to lose in the dark, and no tools required. The shell is 600 D fabric in Realtree Max-5 camouflage for maximum versatility in the field, among the cattails, or on a mid-river sandbar. Brushing blinds is tedious and stressful as the morning’s first birds buzz the … Continue reading

vcsPRAsset_2454_121278_71bab972-8c27-4994-aef9-989c954292fe_0

The RedHead® Dog Pit Blind helps your dog accomplish what it was born and bred to do – bring back ducks and geese and drop them in your hand. Your dog wants you to take your limit of ducks and geese as much as you do, maybe even more. If the birds don’t come in and you don’t drop them, Fido doesn’t get to retrieve them. Sharp-eyed, wary waterfowl are alert for anything out of place and any unnatural movement. Don’t let your excited canine hunting companion give away your meticulously placed decoy spread. The RedHead Dog Pit blind provides essential concealment beneath its Realtree Max-5 600D coated fabric shell. Large and plentiful brush loops allow you to exactly match the blind to surrounding cover. Be Sociable! Share this article with a friend. Tweet

Service Proposes Liberal Waterfowl Hunting Season Frameworks

Screen Shot 2014-10-01 at 12.41.31 PM

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) proposes liberal hunting season lengths and bag limits for the upcoming 2014-15 late waterfowl seasons. States will select their individual seasons from within the federal frameworks that establish the earliest beginning and latest ending dates and the maximum season length and bag limits. According to the Service’s 2014 Waterfowl Population Status Report, population estimates for most species of ducks remained strong for this breeding season. The waterfowl hunting frameworks are set using annual results of cooperative population surveys, banding programs and harvest surveys that produce the largest data set on any wildlife species group in the world. They guide the Service’s waterfowl conservation programs and provide hunting opportunities while ensuring the long-term health of waterfowl populations. Be Sociable! Share this article with a friend.

Bipartisan companion bills introduced to increase Duck Stamp price in House and Senate

The stamp’s current buying power is the lowest in its 80-year history.

WASHINGTON—July 17, 2014— Officials from Ducks Unlimited (DU) are voicing strong support for the Federal Duck Stamp Act of 2014, a bill introduced in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate that would raise the price of the Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp (duck stamp) to $25 from its current level of $15. “We sincerely appreciate the interest and commitment of Chairman Fleming (LA) and Ranking Member Vitter (LA) in introducing their companion bills to address this longstanding need to increase the price of the duck stamp, which was last raised in 1991,” said Dale Hall, CEO of DU.
