be fed and though few were familiar with guns, they learned to hunt out of necessity.

Legends of the Hunt SEP 24, 2010 04:48P.M.

It was important to get a good supply of venison for the camps to supplement their provisions and sustain them over the harsh winter months. Moose, blacktail and mule deer were the favorite choice, but in desperation the hunters would bag whatever they could find.

Legends of the Hunt By John Seerey-Lester Presented by Bernard+Associates

In the Coeur d’Alene Mountains of Idaho, a prospector by the name of Pingree joined up with an old hunter called Purvis to get some meat for the table. Both men were originally from New Hampshire, where they had learned how to ski. A heavy snow blanketed the mountains on that late-November day when the men headed out on skis to hunt blacktails. Following tracks not far from camp, they soon found themselves on the banks of a lake. Pingree saw a dark shape moving in a nearby thicket and through the snowencrusted brush, he could just make out the form of a bull moose. During the rut, moose can be quite aggressive and unpredictable, which the men were well aware of. Cautiously they positioned themselves for a shot. Purvis couldn’t get a clear line of sight so he motioned to Pingree to take the shot. Without shifting his position, Pingree raised his rifle and fired. Sporting Classics Legends of the Hunt

The shot only wounded the moose, which immediately lowered its head and charged Pingree. The prospector desperately tried to maneuver around on his skis, but it was too late and the animal was upon him. Pingree was knocked backwards into the snow and as he struggled to get up, the moose pounded him with his powerful front legs.

Sporting Classics Magazine

The prospector’s desperate cries echoed across the silent snowscape. Purvis skied as fast as he could around the thicket and shot the monster as it continued to stomp on his friend. The only effect of the bullet was to redirect the bull’s attention on Purvis. The animal charged the prospector, moving effortlessly through the snow. Purvis managed to grab a tree branch, hoping to swing out of harm’s way.

Columbia, SC --(AmmoLand.com)- As the old prospector and his friend would quickly discover, a wounded bull moose can be a swift and deadly killer.

As the beast hurtled past, it raised its huge antlers in an effort to gore Purvis, but missed. The moose continued high-stepping through the snow and was never seen again.

Throughout the western United States in the 1850s, mining camps were springing up everywhere as thousands of men from as far away as China and England came in search of fortunes.

The old hunter went to the prospector’s aid, but found him badly wounded, his chest crushed under the relentless onslaught of the animal’s heavy hooves.

Many of the tented mining camps were in wilderness areas where the men had to hunt wild game to survive. The huge influx of people had to

Purvis did what he could to save Pingree, but the poor man died within a few hours. The entire incident, which had lasted only a few seconds,

Wisconsin DNR MADISON, WI --(Ammoland.com)- Each year, with the beginning of the Wisconsin bear hound training and hunting season, bear hunters are reminded to exercise caution if they plan to train or hunt bear with hounds. As of September 24th, 16 hounds have been killed by wolves since the July 1st opening of bear hound training season. Hunters should use the caution area maps below to help reduce conflicts during this year’s bear dog training season. Table 1 contains a summary of the 2010 dog depredations by wolves.

Some of these men are known to us personally, and we know their intentions were nothing more than to meet with one another, share a meal and conversation, and be able to exercise their fundamental right to bear arms. These open carry meet-ups are happening everywhere, and this one was no different.

And don’t forget the importance of setting aside time to enjoy the sporting traditions that form the fabric of our communities. Find an event near you.

Someone called the police to inquire as to whether or not what they were doing (simply openly carrying pistols) is legal. Instead of informing the caller that it is, and asking the caller if anything else seems out of place, Madison PD sent 8 officers there to harass, intimidate, and violate many rights of the citizens.

Wisconsin Carry, Inc. has tried to solve this diplomatically, but Madison Police Chief Noble Wray has simply declared all-out war by charging all 5 men with disorderly conduct, despite the Wisconsin Attorney General stating that open carry is not disorderly conduct and should not be prosecuted!

Gun Rights Lawsuit Dumptrunk is Backing Up to Madison Police & Chief

We are calling on the entire country – particularly the grassroots gun rights groups like Wisconsin Carry and ICarry.org who really make the difference these days for support in this. Wisconsin is a most pivotal piece in the countrywide Right to Carry movement. Wisconsin is one of only 2 states left with completely concealed carry prohibition. As such, Open Carry has grown into a sensational movement unlike anywhere else in the nation.

SEP 24, 2010 12:38P.M. Gun Owners Fight Back – Lawsuit Dumptrunk is Backing Up to Madison Police & Chief ICarry.org Fundraiser for Wisconsin Carry Lawsuit.

All attempts will be made to transform Wisconsin into a state where lawabiding can choose which method to carry - open or concealed - based on what suits their needs and personal preferences. All attempts will be made to see this choice be a real right – no permit or license required – like Alaska, Vermont, and now Arizona. Wisconsin can go from red to green on the Right to Carry map in one sure step after the upcoming election. ICarry.org has witnessed countless open carry events – picnics, litter pickups, food drives, rallies, and simple casual get-togethers. These events are very spontaneous – anyone can decide to start one somewhere and people from nearby show up. Through these events, patriotic supporters of the right to bear arms have gotten to know one another, shared personal experiences, shared knowledge and education, comradery, and hopes.

Have you ever wondered how things get out of hand in this country, and freedoms are lost without due process, without legislation even, and despite our Constitution, the highest law in the land? Well, this is exactly how!!

Madison, Wisconsin --(Ammoland.com)- 5 Open Carriers Harassed/Arrested All now charged with disorderly conduct!!! On Saturday, September 18th, a group of five responsible firearms owners gathered to share company and conversation at Culvers on Town Blvd in Madison, Wisconsin. Approximately eight Madison police officers approached the firearms owners who were enjoying food and discussion with one another.

You give power to imbeciles incapable of critical thinking – right and wrong, cause and effect, limitation of power. They open their mouth, or write their name and their foolhardy ideas on paper, and freedom goes out the window. They are counting on zero to minor backlash from this.

Demanding identification of the gun owners, officers used intimidation and coercion in attempts to force the citizens to provide ID. State law does not allow officers to demand ID in circumstances like this, and Madison PD’s very own “legal updates” explains exactly why refusing to provide ID is not “obstructing.”

“I count myself among many gun rights advocates who fundamentally disagree with the State Department’s reasoning.

October

1. Rule 8.6.3 – Ties for Last Position in Final. The new rulebook now gives match directors the option of conducting a shoot-off to decide ties for the last position(s) in an eight-person final. This addition was made to be inline with the tie-breaking procedures now used by the ISSF. At this year’s National Three-Position Air Rifle Junior Olympic Championship, this rule was added to the program so it could be showcased at a National 3PAR event. In the precision event, no shoot-off was necessary, but a shoot-off was required to determine the last qualifiers for the sporter final. This was the first council shoot-off and the event was well received by competitors and spectators. Under the new rule, national level matches are required to hold shoot-offs, but local matches can still break these ties by using tie-breaking procedures found in Rule 8.6.1. Information about whether or not a match will hold a shoot-off must be included in the match program. The shoot-off is run similar to a final, and must be conducted as soon as possible after qualification scores are posted. Any shooters with tied qualification score (not including x-count) for the last place(s) in the final will then compete in the shoot-off. This can be as few as two shooters, or there could be several shooters with the same numerical score. Shooters are first given a five-minute preparation and sighting period. They then shoot five shots on command, “FOR YOUR FIRST/NEXT COMPETITION SHOT…LOAD…ATTENTION, 3-2-1 START.” Shooters have 75 seconds to fire each shot. Unlike a final, scores are not announced after each shot is fired. After all five shots are completed, the range officer will announce the five-shot totals for all shooters in the shoot-off. If possible, shoot-offs should be scored in tenth ring values (requires electronic targets or Orion VIS scoring). If ties remain, single shots are fired on command until the tie is broken.

2010-2012 Three-Position Air Rifle Rules Now Available SEP 24, 2010 10:49A.M. 2010-2012 Three-Position Air Rifle Rules Now Available Free for AmmoLand Shooting Sports News Readers.

Civilian Marksmanship Program CAMP PERRY, OHIO – -(Ammoland.com)- The 2010 – 2012 8th Edition National Standard Three-Position Air Rifle Rules were released in September 2010.

2. Rule 8.5.5 – Protests of VIS Targets. Visual Image Scoring (VIS) such as the Orion Scoring System, has revolutionized the scoring of paper targets by increasing the speed, consistency and accuracy of scoring. Like any new system, the rules concerning its practical use have continued to change as experience is gained and situations arise that warrant change. Rule 8.5.5 concerns the protest procedures for shots scored by VIS targets. Instead of challenging the entire target as was the rule in the previous edition of the rulebook, the new rule states that a specific shot or shots must be protested. Obvious errors, such as when the computer program picks up the wrong shot location, multiple shots on the same bull, or when a paper tear is picked up as a shot, can be brought to the attention of the Statistical officer and changed without an official challenge. If the competitor believes that a shot without an obvious error was scored incorrectly the shot must be officially protested. Shooters must be very confident in their protests, however, since there is now a two-point penalty per protest if the whole number value of the shot does not increase. The Council’s decision to impose a two-point penalty for lost score challenges was adopted so that the score protest procedures for VIS scoring would be essentially the same as they are for electronic (EST) targets where there has been a two-point penalty for lost score protests for several years. The two-point penalty also is intended to avoid slowing down the match when some competitors attempt to “buy points” by protesting several shots that must then be rescored. The incentive is now very high for shooters to only challenge shots that they are convinced should be a higher point value. If stated in the match program, a protest fee (of $3 or less) can be collected for each

The National Three-Position Air Rifle Council•, which governs most three-position air rifle shooting in the USA, releases a revised rulebook every two years. Rule changes are based on decisions made by the Council, which held its most recent annual meeting this past June. The 2010-2012 version of the rules includes several rule clarifications that are based on interpretations issued during the last two years. A few changes were also made to bring three-position rules in line with International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) rule changes. Rule changes concerning three-position equipment were also few in number. A new Daisy replacement stock for the M888/887 CO2 air rifles was approved. This stock features an adjustable cheek-piece and buttplate (once adjustments are set, they cannot be changed during a sporter class competition). Authorization was given for match sponsors to allow “lower-cost air rifles” at the grassroots level. New ISSF standards for checking the size of shooting trouser seat pads and the flexibility of shooting shoes were incorporated into the rules (precision class clothing). Standards for checking blinders and visors were established (see #3 below). The following highlights three of the most significant rule changes.

protest. If a shot is protested, the scan for that shot is then re-evaluated with a “protest algorithm.” If the shooter is granted the point, the fee is returned and score adjusted. If the original score remains the same, the fee is not returned and two points must be deducted from the score of the protested shot. All results of protests are final and cannot be appealed.

AMMOLAND.COM 3. 4.7.7 – Headgear and Blinders. Competitors now need to be more mindful of the way in which they wear their caps or visors while shooting. If a hat is pulled down too far, the sides may be considered side blinders. While side blinders are permitted under Rule 4.7.9, they are restricted to being no more than 40mm deep (downward direction), and also must not extend past the center of the forehead as seen from the side. To prevent cap bills and visors from being pulled down so that they become illegal side blinders, Rule 4.7.7 was updated to state that when a hat or visor is worn, the area on the forehead between the eyebrows must be visible from the side of the shooter. Range officers will be able to check by coming to the side of shooter in position. From that viewpoint, they can quickly determine whether the hat or visor is high enough on the shooter’s head. It is also important to note that the cap or visor is not permitted to touch the rear sight. Some floppy visors or hats may hit the rear sight, so shooters should place their hats in such a way that they do not touch the sights.

WEST POINT, MS --(Ammoland.com)- Q: What is a good call for beginners? A: For ducks, I typically recommend double reed calls. The double reed duck call is what I call the training wheels of duck calls. Now this doesn’t mean that a veteran should not blow a double reed, but they are easier to learn on in my opinion. The double reed allows the caller to lean on the call more and give it more air without the fear of slipping a bad or scratch note.

For geese, I would start out with and continue to use short reeds. There are a few manufacturers out there who make great flute style calls, and in the right hands they can be deadly. But in my opinion the easier style to learn and continue to progress on is the short reed style goose call.

Q: How can I learn how and when to call? A: Learning how to call is a lot easier than learning when to call. To learn how to call takes nothing but practice and lots of it. These days there are endless websites with calling instructions and online lessons. There is also an abundance of calling instructional DVDs/CDs on the market. If you do not have someone who you can practice with to help you correct bad habits, I would recommend purchasing one of these DVDs or CDs and listening to the sounds that the caller is making. If you have access to a local refuge or park, it doesn’t hurt to go and listen to the best teachers of all, the birds themselves. Learning when to call is a completely different story. And no one can really teach it to you. The only way to learn when to call takes time in the field watching the birds.

Mossy Oak Pro Staff Member Cory Dukehart Q: What is the best way to set up if I only have a limited number of decoys? A: Having a limited amount of decoys to use is not always a bad thing depending where you are in the country and the time of the year you are hunting them. One of the best ways to use a smaller amount of decoys is in the early season. I would set them up in small family groups, 3 or 4 birds per group, and then about 10-15 yards away another small family group.

Georgia Hunters Help Fight Hunger SEP 24, 2010 09:14A.M.

Q: What is your favorite way to hunt ducks? A: My favorite way to hunt ducks is in a field from a lay down blind. There is nothing like working in a group of about 20 mallards and having them practically land right on top of you before you call the shot.

Georgia Hunters Help Fight Hunger Fifteen collection sites now available for Georgia Hunters for the Hungry program.

Q: What do you do if ducks or geese are “short stopping” your decoy spread? A: One thing to do is to jump on your call really hard and fast. Get really excited on the call. This doesn’t always work, but I have had success with it in the past. Typically it will pick the birds back up and allow them to drift the few extra yards you need to make the shot. The key to this is to make sure you do it before they actually land. If you see the birds about to set down on the edge of your spread outside of gun range, make sure you hit them with the call then before they get on the ground. Once they are on the ground, there is not a whole lot you can do to get them closer. Q: What is the best call to use for pressured or “call shy” ducks? A: I don’t know there really is a good call for “call shy” ducks. If you have to blow a call make sure it’s a quiet one and use it very sporadically. I would try to stick with slow, relaxed sounds, single quacks, pecking and clucking. If the ducks are call shy and everyone hunting around you is calling a lot, your best move might just be to shut up and see what they do with silence. They might just come right to you.
