Henry Repeating Arms Issues Recall Notice for Certain Lever Action .45-70 Rifles

Henry Repeating Arms recently discovered a safety issue affecting certain lever action .45-70 Gov’t rifles manufactured between December 14, 2022, and January 11, 2023. Henry is voluntarily initiating a recall to protect the safety of its customers because, under certain conditions, it is possible that some of these rifles may unintentionally discharge without the trigger being pulled if the hammer is released or dropped from the cocked position. To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, owners of a Henry Repeating Arms lever action .45-70 should discontinue all use until it is determined whether or not the rifle is subject to recall.

Any Henry Repeating Arms firearm obtained before December 2022 is not subject to this recall, and no action is needed.

The safety issue leading to this voluntary recall was discovered internally during test firing and is related to firing pins that may not meet specifications. Henry Repeating Arms is ready to replace the firing pins free of charge in the order by which the firearms are received. Information on the current turnaround time for rifles returned under this recall will be provided at Henry Repeating Arms will make every effort to minimize the turnaround time.

Picking the right fishing plier might be a more complicated task than it appears at first glance. In today’s market, with so many different options, sporting different features and materials help complicate this seemingly easy task. 

The first question you should ask yourself is, what is my budget? Where are you going to use these pliers? And finally, what are the features you need to accomplish your fishing goals?   

There is such a diverse selection of pliers that it can be an interesting decision. It’s very easy to end up owning quite a few sets of pliers and switch them up based on what tasks you’re doing, where you’ll be fishing, and what your needs for any trip might be. 

If you’re one of those anglers that don’t enjoy just one type of fishing, this question gets way more interesting. One day might, you might be fishing offshore for tuna and other pelagics, the next day chasing bass and stripers from a kayak, the next stalking shallow flats for redfish, or even a summer foray into a mountain meadow to fly fish for trout. Each one of these scenarios really can call for a very different fishing plier.

Senate Bill Would Conserve Corridors, Habitat in Nevada’s Ruby Mountains

Ruby Mountains Protection Act would conserve 340,000-plus acres home to mule deer, sage grouse, Lahontan cutthroat trout

WASHINGTON – More than 340,000 acres of public lands and waters in northeast Nevada’s Ruby Mountains would be conserved under legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate today.

The Ruby Mountains Protection Act would prohibit oil and gas leasing on more than 300,000 acres of the Ruby Mountains subdistrict of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and nearly 40,000 acres of the Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge. The region provides a critical migratory corridor for the state’s largest mule deer herd, sage grouse habitat, and robust fisheries including Lahontan cutthroat trout, the Nevada state fish. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) reintroduced the bill in the 118th Congress. It passed out of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee in the 117th Congress with bipartisan support. 

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, which now has supported the legislation across three Congresses, highlighted its importance to Nevada’s fish, wildlife and public lands and waters.

“We thank Sen. Cortez Masto for her leadership on reintroducing the Ruby Mountains Protection Act, which would withdraw nearly 350,000 acres of public land from oil and gas leasing, removing the threat of habitat fragmentation while maintaining multiple use,” said Bryce Pollock, BHA Nevada chapter policy co-chair. “Sportsmen and women applaud this legislation that would conserve critical habitat in the migratory corridor for Nevada’s largest mule deer herd as well as streams and lakes populated by Lahontan cutthroat trout.”

Airalite; Packable, Ultralight Protection from the Elements

One of the Most Advanced Rain Shell Available, 100 USA-made

The Airalite is equipped with RECCO® technology for search and rescue detecting as well as boasts an impressive waterproof rating while maintaining performance-ready breathability and a windproof rating to handle extreme winds. 

The jacket incorporates FORLOH’s first-of-its-kind horizontal zippered back vent which was designed to allow excess heat to escape while still offering protection, whether standing in a torrential downpour or simply getting sprayed while fishing in rough waters.

Classic Contender: Meet “Old Bob” Downey

St. Croix pro offers insights on the 2023 Bassmaster Elite Season, builds his own rod, and dives into the slugfest that will be this month’s Bassmaster Classic on the Tennessee River

Competitive fishing’s grandest stage will be in Knoxville, Tennessee, March 24-26, when the 2023 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Toyota comes to the Tennessee River. St Croix Pro “Old Bob” Downey of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota is among the 55 elite anglers competing for the biggest title and payout in competitive bass fishing.

Bob Downey is in his fourth season fishing the Elites. He finished the 2022 season with an AOY rank of 23. So far this season, he has placed 54th at Lake Okeechobee and 12th at Lake Seminole, earning 144 AOY points placing him in 24th place.

“I wasn’t thrilled with 54th in Florida, but I’ll take 54th over 85th any day,” says Downey, who was a lot happier with his 12th-place finish in Georgia. “I’m just trying to stay consistent,” he says. “I had one bad tournament last year, but everything else was decent. That’s what it takes to make the Classic. For me, there’s no secret formula. I’m no better than the best local anglers on any water we fish,” he says. “I work really hard but so does everyone else. I guess one thing I do try to do is keep a calm demeanor throughout every day of competition. That means rolling with the punches and keeping a calm head. Do that and more times than not you’ll find something that works. But that can’t happen if you are totally spun out.”

Downey says he’s looking forward to this year’s events at Lake Champlain, the St. Lawrence River, and Lake St. Clair the most. “Being from Minnesota, those are obviously the venues that set up the best for my style of fishing,” he says. “I really like fishing at Lake Champlain.”

The Nomad Pursuit Convertible Turkey Vest Provides Excellent Functionality with a Minimalist Design for Fast Paced Turkey Hunts

Hunting vests are a necessary piece of gear.  The Nomad Pursuit Convertible Turkey Vest is a leading-edge design delivering a highly functional yet minimalist spin on the Turkey hunting vest. The lightweight and versatile design are exceptional in its class, allowing hunters to choose between wearing a traditional vest or unclipping and converting the bottom half of the vest into a fanny pack.  

The Pursuit Convertible Vest guarantees the only extra weight hunters have to tote around will be the weight of a long beard in the rear roll-top game tote. The game tote has a multipurpose setup, as hunters can use it for extra clothing layers or equipment. This lightweight design doesn’t come at the expense of optimal storage options. The Pursuit Convertible Vest provides multiple pockets to keep the most utilized items nearby. A turkey’s vision is sharp, keeping hunters on their toes during a chase. The chest and side storage pockets allow minimal movements, which are critical to successfully harvesting a turkey. The chest pocket provides room for a rangefinder or cell phone, while the external Thermacell® pocket helps to keep from swatting unwanted insects away during a hunt.

The Pursuit Convertible Vest provides two friction and mouth call pockets, a box call pocket, and a locator sleeve. The zippered storage cargo pocket also has elastic loops to hold strikers and shotgun shells. Hunters can quickly fire off the call of their choice and locate a potential gobbler, all without reaching into far-away bags or pant pockets.

The Pursuit Convertible Vest has a double-padded, high-density foam cushion for optimal comfort, with magnetic closure. The magnetic closure is handy when making a quick move or changing the game plan during the hunt. The vest is available in two different Mossy Oak camo print options, the Mossy Oak Bottomland® or Mossy Oak Shadowleaf®. Both camo patterns have proven to blend hunters easily into the surrounding terrain.

The Pursuit Series is Packed with Performance and Comfort for Turkey Season

The Nomad Pursuit Series paves the way for an innovative turkey hunting apparel line that provides hunters with comfort and concealment on every hunt. Top to bottom, the Pursuit Series has hunters covered with state-of-the-art technology. The Pursuit Series features everything from sun-protective and stain-resistant fabric to styles worn comfortably at every temperature.

Nomad’s Pursuit short-sleeve and long-sleeve designs were developed with spring days in mind as they offer hunters protection from harmful UV rays. Both shirt designs are essential pieces of a turkey hunter’s wardrobe, blocking UVA and UVB rays while providing a moisture-wicking fabric that transports sweat away from the skin. The tops make great layering tools on chilly mornings, but when the sun and temperatures rise during a hunt, they can also be worn alone. The anti-microbial properties of the designs make these styles workhorses for hunters, as the fabric prevents the spread of microorganisms during a harvest. This feature will come in handy for everything from packing out a long beard to processing the meat obtained.  

Like the Pursuit tops above, the Nomad Pursuit 1/4 Zip is another long-sleeve option that delivers hunters +UPF 30 SPF blocking damaging sun rays. The 1/4 zip design allows hunters to unzip the upper part of the garment when needing to cool off or get additional airflow. Hunters will value the garment’s anti-microbial and stain-resistance properties, as they can enjoy it on many future hunts. Constructed with a synthetic material that keeps any sweat off the skin, hunters will stay dry and cool when on a run-and-gun chase of a gobbler.

The Pursuit Pants are a must-have for every turkey hunter’s wardrobe this season. The lightweight 4-way stretch design makes chasing down those gobbles effortless, as hunters will have a complete range of motion. At the same time, the ever-adjust band and never-pop button keep pants fitted and secure during the hunt. Turkey hunters often are challenged with beating turkeys to an intended destination, and sometimes this comes with a lot of movement. All of the mentioned features keep the pant in place during an action-filled hunt. The articulated knees and anatomical shaping provide top performance and fit packed into one pair of pants.

The Pursuit Series is available in Mossy Oak Shadow leaf, Mossy Oak Bottomland®, and Realtree Timber®.

Minneapolis Area Take Kids Ice Fishing Event Sees Record Turnout

Minneapolis trade unions hosted Union Sportsmen’s Alliance ice fishing event on East Rush Lake on Saturday

Spring Hill, Tenn.—Warm winter weather drew more than 100 youth and their families to East Rush Lake in Rush City, Minnesota, for the annual Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA) Minneapolis Area Take Kids Ice Fishing Day on Saturday, March 4.

Hosted by the Minneapolis Building and Construction Trades Council (BCTC), International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC) Local 9, and a coalition of additional labor unions and other supporters, the free event aimed to introduce the next generation of anglers and conservationists to the joys of ice fishing.

This young girl was proud to catch her first fish at the Minneapolis Area Take Kids Ice Fishing Event.

“It was a great day on the lake—by far, the best event we’ve had,” said Dave Morin, an IUEC Local 9 officer and the event organizer.  “Every other year, we’ve had freezing rain, negative digits, six inches of snow—every condition except optimal. This year, we had beautiful weather, the kids caught lots of fish, everyone won a prize, and there were tons of smiles.”

Morin’s favorite part of the event was seeing a young girl catch her very first fish. “She was showing the perch off to everyone, kissing it, and telling everyone she wanted to put it on the wall. She was so proud,” he said.

Taking Up Hunting as a Hobby: 5 Things to Know

Hunting is a grand tradition in America that is enjoyed and practiced by millions of people each year. But why is hunting such a popular sport? As well as being a fun and exciting sport, hunting also benefits natural resource management and wildlife. And that’s not all; the vast amount of money generated by hunting helps to support businesses and create jobs. 

Unfortunately, many people are put off taking up hunting as a sport as they believe that they do not fit the image of a hunter. The stereotypical image of a hunter is often a white male. However, while many hunters are white males, these aren’t the only individuals who enjoy this sport. People of all ages, genders, and ethnicities can enjoy hunting.

If you’re considering hunting and want to learn more about it, keep reading below. We’ve made a list of some things you need to know: 

You Need a License

Before you embark on your new hobby, you need to get a license. However, it’s not as simple as just applying for one. You need to enroll in a hunter education course first. The good news is that these courses are not only informative, but they’re also often a great deal of fun too. As well as this, they’re usually free or very cheap to purchase. You can find a hunter education course near you by searching your state’s game or wildlife commission website. 

Buying the Right Equipment

Before purchasing a firearm in America, you need to ensure you have a license. Once you have this, you can search for the type of firearm you want. The type of firearm you need will depend on the type of animal you are hunting. For example, if you are hunting squirrels, a scoped .22 rifle is perfect. However, you might want to consider a shotgun if you’re hunting a moving target such as a bird or a rabbit.

“Affordable Innovation” has always been the KastKing rallying cry. Now, enter Hammer Braid—a truly new version of braided fishing line.  

Hammer Braid is colorfast, has nearly zero stretch, a higher knot strength, and better abrasion resistance than other brands on the market. It’s everything you want in a premium braided line and precise for any angling condition. 

How is it different? It’s what happens to the fibers prior to the braiding process that sets Hammer Braid apart. Individual fibers are treated utilizing an engineered proprietary coating (EPC) process that provides multiple benefits.

“We’re pre-coloring the fibers prior to braiding, which gives us a much more color-fast product,” says KastKing product development specialist Rex Nelson. “Most companies are coloring the product as a post-braid treatment, but we’ve found the color really sets better within the individual fibers when treating prior to braiding and allows the color to be more permanently locked.” The end result is a braid that holds its color longer than competitive braids.

BHA’s donation will go to the WWF’s Hunters for the Hungry Program to help educate hunters on how they can participate in the program and teach them how to donate meat to H4H for food-insecure communities.

Big Horn Armory (BHA), makers of big-bore firearms, will be donating $3,500 to the Wyoming Wildlife Federation (WWF) to help support its Hunters for the Hungry Program (H4H). This donation will help educate hunters on how they can participate in the program and teach them how to donate meat to H4H for food-insecure communities.

“Since we’ve partnered with WWF in 2020, we’ve been able to donate $8,500 that has been used to educate hunters and support meat donation to food-insecure families within Wyoming. We are happy to work with such a worthy cause that helps impact our fellow citizens of Wyoming,” commented Greg Buchel, president of Big Horn Armory.

WWF’s H4H Program began in the fall of 2018. H4H is looking to deepen its hunter donations with its incredible partnering processors in Lander and Jackson, WY in the future. Over the last four years, over 14,100 meals have been donated through the program to food-insecure communities.

“The continued support of Big Horn Armory and their customers is immense for WWF’s ability to communicate within the Hunters for the Hungry network. We have been able to reach more hunters in specific locales about this opportunity to donate game meat because of the past support of Big Horn Armory,” commented Wyoming Wildlife Federation’s Executive Director, Joy Bannon.
