Unforgettable Adventures and Unyielding Determination

EDGEFIELD, S.C. — Completing just one of the National Wild Turkey Federation’s turkey hunting slams is a remarkable feat, and it’s a goal that many avid turkey hunters aspire to accomplish in their lifetime. Two individuals, though, have achieved something rare through the completion of all six of the NWTF’s wild turkey slams.

In the pursuit of this achievement, Clyde Neely from Kingwood, Texas, emerged as the trailblazer, becoming the first person to complete and register all six NWTF wild turkey slams in 2012.

Fast forward to 2023, and Chip Davis from Grenada, Mississippi, has become the second person to complete and register all six NWTF turkey hunting slams into the NWTF Wild Turkey Records. Davis embarked on his journey toward completing the slams in 1992 when he took his first trip to Missouri. At that time, his goal was simply to harvest a turkey outside of his home state. Upon achieving this goal, he looked to what might come next, and for him, it was going after the Grand Slam ? harvesting the Eastern, Osceola, Rio Grande and Merriam’s subspecies.

“This decision is much like just living life every day,” Davis said. “In life we all set goals, but sometimes we don’t set the biggest goals first.”

After achieving the Grand Slam, his ambitions naturally progressed to the Royal Slam, the World Slam and then the U.S. Super Slam. After 30 years of turkey hunting across the United States, from tent camping to hotel hopping, Davis eventually accomplished the Super Slam, harvesting one wild turkey in all 49 states with a turkey season (Alaska does not have a huntable population).

Please leave wildlife babies alone

Seeing young wild animals alone is common this time of year. Though some may wish to “rescue” these animals, don’t. Wildlife parents are doing their part to make sure their babies survive.

Here are some rules of thumb from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission regarding wildlife babies:

Young non-feathered birds and nests with eggs discovered on the ground should be placed back in the tree. Baby birds covered in feathers found on the ground are being tended to by their parents; leave them alone.A lone fawn may appear to be abandoned or injured, but the mother frequently is off feeding or drinking. Do not move it. The longer the fawn is separated from its mother, the slimmer the chance it will be reunited with her. Know it is normal for a doe to leave its fawn to keep it from being detected by predators. Predators can see the doe as it feeds, so she leaves the fawn hidden and leaves the area to draw attention away from the fawn’s location.Baby rabbits are left unattended through much of the day and night. Mother cottontails do this to prevent drawing predators to the nest. If you see the rabbits, leave them alone.Do not try to raise wildlife babies as pets. As animals mature, they become more independent and follow natural instincts to leave and establish their own territories. Rescued animals are poorly prepared for life in the wild.Most wildlife babies are protected by state or federal law, and it is illegal to possess them.

Dryshod’s All-New Evalusion Boot In Stock and Ready to Ship

Dryshod, the new benchmark in performance waterproof footwear for outdoor recreation and occupational use, continues to advance footwear technology with the most comfortable, highest-performing, and now LIGHTEST WEIGHT waterproof boots on the market today. The all-new Evalusion Hunt, Evalusion Hi, and Evalusion Ankle boots boast a first-ever outsole material that makes them exceptionally light in weight but does so while delivering superior traction and support on any terrain.

Hunters and outdoor enthusiasts know that while waterproof boots are welcome assets in all manner of terrain and climate conditions, they often come at a “heavy” price. It is the weight of waterproof boots and the fatigue resulting from hours of walking difficult terrain that has limited their use for many outdoor adventurers. With the Dryshod Evalusion, that problem is solved.

The Evalusion is the first waterproof boot series to feature the Dryshod-exclusive Dureva outsole technology. Dureva is a lightweight and abrasion-resistant fusion compound that delivers the superior durability and traction demanded in a high-performance outsole while offering exceptional comfort, energy return, and stable footing. This means a secondary rubber outsole is no longer required. By eliminating the need for a secondary outsole, Evalusion boots are nearly one pound lighter than Dryshod’s already lightweight counterparts. Such weight reduction lets you go farther and for longer duration without the fatigue commonly associated with waterproof boots.

In addition to the weight reduction, the Dureva compound maximizes traction performance with the Evalusion’s multi-lug tread design. The tread offers optimal stealth by quietly flexing and bending over ground elements. This is of great value to hunters, of course, but also to anyone moving over difficult terrain where superior traction is essential.

The Benefits of Hunting as a Recreational Activity: Health, Fitness, and Mental Well-being

In today’s hyperactive world, stress and sedentary lifestyles have become more and more commonplace. So, it is essential to participate in activities that promote physical and mental well-being. In our experience, hunting is an excellent recreational activity that provides many benefits. While there are other ways to unwind and interact with nature, hunting also improves your intellectual capability. In this article, we will delve deep into the benefits of hunting as a recreational activity, including its effect on health, fitness, and intellectual well-being.

Hunting as a Recreational Activity

Since the beginning of civilization, hunting has been an essential part of human history. For many people, it’s far a manner to reconnect with nature, escape the hustle and bustle of day-to-day existence, and check their bodies and minds. Hunting consists of pursuing and slaughtering wild animals for meals or recreation. Although some people might also view looking as a strenuous activity, it is a felony and controlled in many parts of the sector.

Health Benefits of Hunting

Hunting is a demanding activity that requires athleticism, stamina, and quick reactions. As a result, it has many fitness benefits, including better cardiovascular health, weight reduction, and elevated muscle power. Walking and trekking while hunting can help you lose up to 500 calories an hour. Hunting can also increase the body’s metabolism, enhancing weight loss due to the adrenaline rush that comes with it.

Nature’s tranquility can help reduce stress and enhance natural instincts. Hunting requires concentration, patience, and mindfulness, improving cognitive performance and reducing tension and melancholy symptoms.

Mental Benefits of Hunting

Hunting requires a lot of focus and concentration, both of which can help improve mental clarity and reduce mental clutter. The isolation and calm of nature can provide a sense of awareness and tranquility, which can help reduce stress and anxiety. The need to think while hunting in unfamiliar territory and tracking games can help hone these skills.

Blackhawk’s Zach Rodman and Jared Halbert Take Firstat South Carolina Tactical Games

Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, congratulates tactical athletes Zach Rodman and Jared Halbert for their first-place finish at The Tactical Games South Carolina Team Event 2023, which took place at The Sawmill Training Complex.

Like individual Tactical Games events in terms of structure, Team Events see two competitors working together to complete various physical and marksmanship stages as quickly as possible. Rodman and Halbert both ran Blackhawk T-Series® holsters and Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear, including plate carrier and belt, to help them secure first-place in the Men’s Elite Division.

“Jared and I have competed against each other since 2019,” said Rodman. “We first met on the firing line in Mississippi, and since that time have remained good friends. I’m more of a team orientated person by nature, so having Jared as a partner over the last two years has been great. Not only is he a great teammate, but as a former champion, he knows what it takes to win. I push hard individually, but there’s an element of not letting your teammate down that makes you push even harder.”

The duo, who previously secured a second-place win when they competed together last season, have praised the Foundation Series and T-Series holsters as a big contributor to their success both in individual and team competitions.

“The Foundation Series Plate Carrier is very minimalist but still holds standard sized plates,” Halbert said. “This design makes it easy to traverse obstacles where other plate carriers would get caught-up. Plus, the removable placard options have proven to be great for mission specific loadouts. Likewise, I’m also pretty particular about holsters, and the T-Series is not only fast, but it also retains the pistol through any kind of movement.”

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation announced today it is enlisting the aid of highly-respected Second Amendment veteran strategist Chris Cox and his public policy/public affairs consulting group, Capitol 6 Advisors, as we forge ahead in our effort to win firearms freedom, one lawsuit at a time.

Cox spent 25 years at the National Rifle Association, including 18 as Executive Director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, where he served as the NRA’s chief political, legislative and legal strategist. Away from politics, he founded an effort to enlist leading cultural brands and talents in the country music industry to promote a wholesome American lifestyle that includes a legacy of responsible gun ownership. He has been a frequent analyst on national news programs and was a primetime speaker during the 2016 Republican National Convention. Cox has been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Daily Caller and other nationwide notable publications. He got his start in Washington in the 1990s as a senior legislative aide to a veteran Member of Congress, managing issues relating to the judicial system and criminal justice reform.

Cox is joined by Cap6 Vice President David Lehman, an expert in strategic communications, data research and crisis management, as well as a proven ability in designing, developing and executing successful corporate, political and grassroots campaigns; Vice President Phil Hoon, formerly Senior Director of Corporate Relations at the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, the largest bipartisan Caucus on Capitol Hill; and Cap6 Coalitions Director Scott Christman, a government relations and public policy professional with more than two decades in federal and state government relations, grassroots advocacy, public affairs/crisis communications and non-profit association management.

“We’re bringing Cap6 aboard in an advisory capacity on a number of different projects,” said SAF Executive Director Adam Kraut. “SAF has been the nation’s leading force in the Second Amendment litigation world. As we look towards the future, I am humbled and excited to have another major influence in the Second Amendment sphere, along with his talented team, available as a resource to help me implement my ideas and shape SAF’s trajectory for the next 50 years.”

“We are excited to work with Adam Kraut and the team at SAF,” said Cap6 President Chris Cox. “The Second Amendment faces unprecedented attacks and America’s law-abiding gun owners deserve real and transparent leadership. I’m proud to deploy my decades of experience advancing the cause of freedom alongside a team I respect and trust. SAF’s best days are ahead of it and law-abiding gun owners everywhere depend on it.”

Badlands® Andaire Line Designed to Beat the Heat

Sandy, UTAH – Too hot to hunt is not a concept we’re familiar with. That said, we’ve slogged through some highly uncomfortable situations that we may not be too keen on repeating. With those hot hunts in mind, we developed the Andaire line of hot-weather gear. 

We started with a wish list of performance features we all wanted to see in hot-weather gear. Superior breathability to keep air flowing. Moisture-wicking technology to help our bodies regulate internal temps. Ultra-quick drying to keep the sticky, sweaty feeling at bay. In other words, we only asked for everything. 

And thanks to Eclipse Air-Vent fabric, we’ve been able to accomplish everything. This is our lightest-weight, most-breathable, hunting-capable fabric. It’s designed to throw off as much heat as possible and still survive the backcountry. 

Available as a men’s Short Sleeve Crew or Long Sleeve Crew and a Women’s Long Sleeve Crew, the Andaire shirts are as close to wearing nothing as we can design. 

Not to leave the bottom half out of the picture, we’ve also introduced a new Women’s Lightweight Legging, which is a warm-to-hot-weather option to the fan-favorite Lagatha Legging. Lightweight, four-way stretch fabric (with thigh pockets) offers the comfort of the yoga/athletic-style pants, with Badlands durability.

Keeping Old West Traditional Ammunition Loads Alive Through Modern Technology

Cimarron Firearms stepped up to fill the need for commercially stamped traditional hunting calibers to support its customers and products.

Cimarron Firearms, makers of quality replicas of Old West firearms, have been quietly filling a hole left wide open when manufacturers of traditional hunting calibers slowly rode off into the sunset. Since 2020, Cimarron Firearms has partnered with Steinel Ammunition to deliver 45-60 Win. and 50-95 Win. ammunition to support customers and the many true-to-original replicas they design and produce.

“While the reloading community for traditional hunting and cowboy action rounds exists, it didn’t help our customers that wanted the experience of owning and hunting with one of our Tom Horn or Presidio lever action rifles,” Bryce Wayt, VP of Operations and Media for Cimmaron Firearms, explained. “It became obvious to us that we needed to provide that optimal experience, and that included providing commercially available ammunition to our customers.”

As American manufacturers rode the wave of self-defense ammunition demands, Cimarron started from ground zero. Sourcing the reloadable brass, bullets, and powder to produce the 45-60 and 50-95 calibers became a logistical obstacle course during the ammunition scarcity months. Perseverance and a determination to provide customers with the same high quality in their named ammunition as in their firearms drove Cimarron to test multiple loaders until finally settling on Steinel Ammunition to load Cimarron’s ammunition. Steinel Ammunition, a premium ammunition company, concentrates on historical, traditional, and hard-to-find ammunition calibers.

Cimarron-Firearms “Presidio” short rifle in 50-95.

Cimarron Firearms currently offers Cimarron stamped .45-60 Win. in a 20-round box for $67.10. The 300 gr. RNFP-coated rounds have an FPS of 1,380. Cimarron’s .50-95 Win. Ammo is also offered in a 20-round box at $67.10. This 350 gr. RNFP round has an FPS of 1,300.

Savage Arms® Expands R3 Efforts, Commitment

Savage Arms recently attended and participated in the 2023 National R3 Symposium in Albuquerque, New Mexico May 22-25, 2023. The event was delivered by The Council to Advance Hunting and the Shooting Sports and attended by hundreds of representatives of state/national agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGO) and hunting, shooting, sports, fishing and outdoor industries across the country. In addition to contributions at the event, Savage’s commitment to R3 is significant and ever-growing.

Savage partners with many organizations that engage in boots-on-the-ground R3 efforts. The company is proud to work in tandem with entities that focus on conservation, mentorship and education. Several Savage partners run unique programming to educate new hunters and shooters, have women-led chapters, host youth events and mentored hunts and more.

Savage Digital Marketing Specialist Kristin Boeshart spoke on the Industry Engagement in R3 Panel at the recent event. Facilitating relationships between industry and NGO/agency professionals on the R3 front is a constant topic of conversation. To accurately contribute to this conversation, the panel of industry professionals discussed current efforts and sparked some new ideas for creative partnerships moving forward.

“Everyone in the R3 community is marching towards the same goal – to preserve the future of hunting and shooting sports,” said Boeshart. “We’re committed to doing our part by bringing innovative new products to the market, creating educational content and partnering with organizations that share our values. The outdoors is for everyone, and we have the opportunity to shout it from the mountaintop through our platforms.”

“We were honored by the invitation to participate in the Industry Engagement panel discussion. We came away with many new ideas to recruit, retain and reactivate hunters and shooters. We hope R3 practitioners at state agencies and non-government organizations find value in what industry brands and manufacturers like Savage bring to the table. Attending and speaking at the 2023 National R3 Symposium was a great opportunity for us to learn more about what challenges the R3 community is facing and how Savage can be a better partner.”

Today is the golden age of bass fishing. With all the technology that has been developed between rods, reels, lines, and lures, we are blessed to have the best gear that has ever been available to anglers. Fishing electronics are no exception in this drastic increase in available technology. 

It wasn’t too many years ago that graphs replaced flashers, and GPS units were nonexistent. Anglers used Loran-C, a triangulation method by radio wave, and it was nowhere near as accurate as today’s GPS systems. Not to mention, that accurate lake mapping was a faraway dream. With today’s incredible mapping systems, precise GPS locators, Chirp sonar, side imaging, 360-degree imaging, and forward-facing sonar, electronics help refine anglers’ abilities to consistently find fish like never before. 

It’s incredible to look at the electronics suites on some angler’s bass boats. There can be as many as three to four graphs at the console and on the bow. The trick is how to mount all these electronics. 

Enter Trophy Graph Systems. Initially developed to help a friend figure out how to securely mount more than one graph on the front of his bass boat, Trophy Graph Systems has grown their product line to be a one-stop shop for anglers mounting and rigging electronics on their boats, both at the helm and also the bow.

Reaching for your pliers, you hear the classic line from the popular tune, and ironically it’s that moment when you realize you are missing your tools.

Nothing will end a day of fishing quicker than leaving your tools behind! When prepping for a trip, every angler knows to bring their fishing rod, reel, hooks/baits, leaders, etc. One would think your pliers, fish grippers, fillet knives, and other angling tools would be a no-brainer. However, we are so used to tools being present that it can be easy to miss when loading the boat! Every angler at one time or another has left their box of favorite baits in the garage, so leaving your tools behind shouldn’t be a surprise.

Let’s take a tour through must-have tools and uses, making them top of mind on your next saltwater adventure. Smith’s Consumer Products professionally design tools for both the seasoned and beginning angler.
