Rack one GRAYLING, Mich. --(Ammoland.com)- Successful deer-huntingproperty owners understand that the end of hunting season means that true deer season has only just begun. That’s because they know that, even though the long rut followed by a particularly brutal winter has come to an end, the real whitetail season starts with revitalizing their herd. Feeding is more important now than ever to produce big bucks and prevent infant mortality. They know that without a herd of healthy deer roaming their property, there’ll be just an occasional immature buck crossing within range come hunting season. The best of them know right now is the time to condition their herd, and they do it with Overload from Rack One. The Condition Phase of the IGNITE Whitetail Hunting System is designed to do exactly what it says: condition your herd. This phase is targeted towards the herd as a whole, not just the bucks. When it comes

to staying healthy, conditioning the deer is a major step that many people overlook completely.

nutrition—fat, protein, etc.—that they require to return to good health after the rut. This is another extremely important aspect of herd management for a few different reasons.

“To ensure the health of the herd, we suggest using the Condition Phase IGNITE product, Overload, from the time the rut ends until either the snow melts in the north or when deer start to shed their velvet after growing season,” said Casey Keefer, co-owner at Rack One. “Overload is a premium 20-percent protein deer pellet that can be fed in gravity feeders, trough-style feeders, or spin-cast feeders. This pellet contains all the necessary nutrients that deer need to get their bodies back into peak condition after a long and stressful breeding season.”

First, if a doe is able to immediately begin recuperating after the rut, she will be much more likely to maintain a healthy pregnancy. If a doe is not healthy, her body will naturally abort that pregnancy in order to survive. This leads to a higher rate of mortality, which will decrease the number of deer in the herd in the future. This creates what is commonly referred to as a generation gap. “Overload doesn’t just stop there,” Keefer said. “If the does are able to sustain a pregnancy throughout the winter, the real work begins the minute they give birth. For the first few months of life, fawns are completely reliant upon their mothers to survive. Eating every three to four hours for weeks on end, nursing fawns can in fact, drain the life out of a doe—and that’s especially true if there are twins. We’ve shown that does eating Overload during this time gives them the proper nutrition to support fawns throughout the fawning season into the summer, when fawns will begin to wean off the does and browse for natural forage.” If a doe has twins, the minute her body begins to lack in terms of health, she is very likely to abandon one or both of her fawns just to survive, and once again, decreasing herd numbers. Whether it’s does or bucks, decreasing herd numbers will affect your hunting plans for years to come. When too many bucks die off, the buck-to-doe ratio gets thrown off, and a healthy herd can become decimated rather quickly because of the lack of breeding. Likewise, when too many does die off, the buck-todoe ratio will slide to the other extreme, and the natural mortality will increase due to fighting and competition to breed the fewer number of does.

Rack One Overload Deer Feed Having whitetail in peak condition allows a few different things to happen. In terms of a buck, Overload will pack the weight back on his body after the rut. Regaining weight that has been lost during the rut is a crucial aspect of how long that specific animals’ antler-growing season will be. In addition to its 20-percent protein content, Overload has a guaranteed analysis of nine-percent fat content with a six-percent fiber content to ensure your bucks can rapidly bulk back up.

All in all, the Condition Phase is one of the most important chapters of the Rack 1 Ignite Whitetail System. By using it properly, hunters and land managers can ensure their herd remains healthy and in good balance, thus leading to more successful days in the field come fall. Rack One’s scientifically engineered IGNITE Whitetail Hunting System provides 365 days of complete whitetail nutrition and attraction for your herd. The IGNITE system addresses the evolving needs with a comprehensive line of products that contain tailored levels of nutritional supplements such as protein and fat. This system is comprised of four specific phases—Condition, Grow, Scout, and Hunt. After the rut ends, it’s time to rebuild your herd health in the Condition Phase with Overload, the post-season calorie-consumption feed that helps your bucks recover from the strenuous schedule of fighting, chasing and breeding. As your deer herd stabilizes, the Grow Phase begins with Xcellerator, which is packed with the minerals and nutrients that promote herd health and growth while maximizing antler development among the bucks. When it’s time to set out the trail cams, it’s also time to begin the Scout Phase with the protein and fat-packed Chaos. In Hunt Phase, you’re ready to reign in those deer with Rut Fuel and Acorn Crush, the extremely powerful premium attractants that bring the deer

“If a buck doesn’t put its weight back on and heal his body after the rut, when it comes time to shed his antlers and begin growing new ones—usually about the time spring foliage is beginning to appear—everything he eats will be directed to his body in order to gain weight instead of going toward antler growth,” Keefer said. “These are just the natural steps his body must take to ensure he is healthy again come that shed/grow time. This time is critically important to put mass on his body, so his body can immediately focus on antler growth when that process begins.” For the herd’s whitetail does, there is no phase that is more important to the health and vitality of does than the Condition Phase. Every whitetail herd must have a certain number of healthy, breeding does in order for the herd to grow and succeed. Overload provides does with all the

Team FNH USA results included finishes by team members Tommy Thacker coming in 7th in the Open Division and 9th overall in the match, Mark Hanish who placed 13th in the Tactical Optics Division, followed by the latest addition to the team, Eric Lund in 35th place. Dianna Liedorff placed 72ndoverall, just over Tasha Hanish in 75th. The women of Team FNH USA also took 2nd and 3rd in the Tactical Optics Women’s Division respectively. Ken Pfau, Vice President of Law Enforcement and Commercial Sales for FNH USA rounded out the team’s overall finish in 20th in the Tactical Limited Division shooting iron sights. “Shooting iron sights at this match is always fun.

Tabor Bright placed 17th in the Heavy Optics Division with his .308 SCAR 17s.

BLOCK Targets Launches New Interactive Website APR 04, 2011 01:25P.M. BLOCK Targets Launches New Interactive Website Magnum Research PEARL RIVER, NY --(Ammoland.com)- Magnum Research, a Kahr Arms-owned company and the maker of the Desert Eagle pistols, has teamed up with the popular Discovery Channel series, Gold Rush Alaska. The show begins its second season in the fall of 2011, and Magnum Research firearms will be an integral part of the season. Gold Rush Alaska is a reality show following six unemployed men from Sandy, Oregon who risk everything in the face of an economic meltdown to strike it rich mining for gold in the wilderness of Alaska. Todd Hoffman, the leader of the team, and his father Jack assembled the greenhorn miners to work the claim at Porcupine Creek– one of the last great wilderness expanses remaining in Alaska. Success depends on the team’s unity and fighting spirit to overcome numerous obstacles from wicked weather and mechanical breakdowns to encounters with large bears and moose. The men are chasing the original “American Dream” with the desire to take charge of their own destiny rather than waiting around for a government handout.

BLOCK Targets Launches New Interactive Website

Magnum Research was founded in 1985 in Minneapolis, Minn. with a plan to produce a unique pistol capable of firing magnum-sized bullets in distinctive custom finishes, including a 24K Gold model, for handgun hunters and firearm enthusiasts. By the early 1990s, the Desert Eagle’s unique qualities and unmistakable look earned it starring roles in numerous movies and TV shows. The Desert Eagle pistol had emerged as a pop culture icon including a Playboy cover featuring Pamela Anderson with a pink Desert Eagle pistol. In recent years, Magnum Research encountered its share of economic struggles, and with the purchase of the company by Kahr Arms in June 2010, a turnaround story began to emerge by that fall. Kahr’s goal is to re-establish the iconic Desert Eagle pistol in the market with a “Made in America” theme.

Block Fusion Superior, Wisconsin --(Ammoland.com)- While The BLOCK targets continue to dominate the archery market with new and innovative targets, the company’s new www.blocktarget.com website provides viewers with easy access to product information, videos and testimonials on all of the revolutionary BLOCK products.

It’s very fitting that a determined group of six men seeking riches in the gold fields of Alaska have teamed up with Magnum Research, an iconic American company whose symbol is a 24K Gold Desert Eagle pistol. Each of them personifies rugged individualism, courage and hope in the face of adversary, demonstrating the true fabric of American society.

The completely revamped site features easy-to-navigate menus and an on-site store, making it easier than ever to find and purchase BLOCK products. To learn more about the design of these popular targets, the website features streamlined videos demonstrating the benefits of proprietary design, while the award-winning commercials entertain and educate viewers.

For more information about Magnum Research products, visit www.magnumresearch.com.

The new site also offers interactive games, fan photos, links to The BLOCK Archery Targets page on Facebook as well as information and applications for becoming a BLOCK pro staffer. Up-to-date specials and

Are Hollow-Point Bullets Illegal For Personal Defense APR 04, 2011 10:14A.M. Are Hollow-Point Bullets Illegal For Personal Defense

Are Hollow-Point Bullets Illegal For Personal Defense Many law-enforcement agencies use hollow-point ammunition. There are some famous brands that are well-known as “good guy” ammo, and a prosecutor would have a hard time making the case that one who carries the same ammo in his or her personal defense weapon is being unreasonable. In my opinion, there is no reason not to carry effective personal defense ammunition.

Michigan Coalition For Responsible Gun Owners Michigan --(Ammoland.com)- Q: Are hollow-point bullets illegal for personal defense? What about laser sighting devices?

The same is true of laser sights in my opinion. The technology is mature, widely available, and considered effective by tactical experts. From a legal standpoint, the key is to make sure that any use of force is justified by necessity and that you control your weapon. Insofar as a laser helps with control, it seems to me that it is more likely to help a self-defense shooter avoid liability than create perception issues in the event of a jury trial.

A: There is no statutory restriction on the type of ammo that you can carry in your personal defense weapon. Nor is there any prohibition on sighting devices. There may be some potential concerns about jury perception if you ever have to use your gun in self-defense and find yourself facing charges. (This is much less likely to occur at this point in history than prior to the enactment of Public Act 311 of 2006 [MCL 780.951] which created presumptions that deadly force is appropriate in certain situations and also created qualified immunity to those who use force in legitimate self defense.)

I have personally recommended hollow-point ammo and laser sights to family and friends, and will continue to do so. On a related topic: I have run across examples of engraving on guns, and more than one tattoo, that might lead to extra challenges for a defense attorney. For example, engraving “Widowmaker” on your personal defense gun, or “Make my day” on your arm is certainly bound to give any jury member the impression that you are something less than a responsible citizen who hopes to never face the necessity of shooting in self defense.

There have been examples of prosecutors focusing on the hardware used by defendants. They try to overcome the self-defense argument by painting a picture of the armed citizen as blood-thirsty. In one particular case in another state, the defendant used a certain brand of hollow-point ammo that came in a box featuring a picture of a hawk or eagle talon. It appears that the tactic was successful and contributed to the conviction of an armed citizen who argued that he fired to save his life. I’m told that the particular brand of ammo in question has changed it’s name and packaging.

This information is provided by The Law Offices of Steven W. Dulan, PLC (www.stevenwdulan.com) This answer is intended as general information and should not be relied upon as legal advice for any specific situation or case. The facts of each case vary and you should consult an attorney whenever you have specific questions. Did you Know? In the 4 years (1997-2000) prior to Michigan becoming “shall-issue”, reported incidents of crime averaged 4,509 per 100,000 people per year. In the 4 years after, (2002-2005), reported incidents of crime in Michigan fell 17% to an average of 3,717.

Congressman Refuses Award From Animal Rights Wackos at HSUS

Police Chiefs Add Their Support for Right to Carry Bill HB148 Big Blue Wall of Opposition Crumbles.

IllinoisCarry.com Illinois --(Ammoland.com)- Supporters of Right to Carry legislation in Illinois welcome the new support of the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. Leadership from the organization voted this past week to add their support to Right to Carry bill HB148. Current text in the bill is considered a place holder for new text which is expected to be amended into the bill in the next few weeks.

National Rifle Association FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- This week, U.S. Representative Don Young (R-Alaska) refused an award from the Humane Society of the United States. As we have frequently reported, despite their innocuous sounding name, the HSUS is the most radical animal “rights” organization in the country.

HB148 now has the support of the Chiefs association, the Illinois Sheriffs Association, and the Chicago Police Department’s Sheriff’s Union. Please join us at IllinoisCarry.com for the ongoing discussions about the bill and the support it is gaining as it makes its way through the legislative process.

They are extremely anti-hunting and anti-gun.

There are many organizations in Illinois working to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights. Working with these groups IllinoisCarry has become the central location

According to a press release on Rep. Young’s official site, he was to receive the award for his work on behalf of wildlife in 2010. The release notes that HSUS takes credit for the good work done by local humane societies, but does not own, operate, or directly control a single animal shelter in the entire country, despite a $100 million budget.

Instead they prey on the emotions of big-hearted Americans. They flash images of abused animals on our television screens to raise money that will eventually go to pay their salaries and pensions, not to helping better the lives of these animals. They run anti-hunting and anti-trapping campaigns and are of the same cloth as PETA and other extremist organizations. I can only guess that I was to receive this award due to my support of the Wildlife Without Borders program, which develops wildlife management and conservation efforts to maintain global species diversity. That program is true conservation; what this group wants is preservation. State Mandated Victimhood and You - Perfect Together! To accept this award would be supporting their manipulative ways and misguided agenda, and I want no part of that.” Bravo, Congressman Young.

mistakenly targeted this Jeffrey Muller for revenge. They assaulted him, shocked him with a stun gun, and kidnapped him, driving him from New Jersey to Lake Ozark, Missouri. He was blindfolded, beaten and threatened with death. Fortunately, he was finally able to escape and the kidnappers were arrested. Now back in New Jersey, Mr. Muller is understandably still shaken by the experience and fears reprisal from relatives of his abductors. He wants to protect himself, so he applied for a gun permit. He was denied. Twice. And the reason given for the denial? The Superior Court judge who ruled in the case said Mr. Muller provided “no proof of justifiable need” to carry a firearm! Let’s make this clear: Muller was severely beaten, electrically shocked, abducted, held captive hundreds of miles from his home, threatened with death, and now fears future reprisals.

FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- Blaming America for Mexico’s problems has been something of a national pastime for Mexican politicians for many years.

True to tradition, Mexican president Felipe Calderon has been blaming Mexico’s astronomically high murder rate on Americans who buy drugs and who sell guns, rather than on the Mexican drug cartels who commit a vastly disproportionate share of those murders, and the historic corruption in Mexico, from which the wicked cartels have spawned. However, an article published by the Mexico City newspaper La Jornada suggests that el Presidente might better serve the good people of his country by looking to his southern border, instead of al norte.

As explained in English by the Latin American Herald Tribune, “The most fearsome weapons wielded by Mexico’s drug cartels enter the country from Central America, not the United States, according to U.S. diplomatic cables disseminated by WikiLeaks and published on Tuesday by La Jornada newspaper. Items such as grenades and rocket-launchers are stolen from Central American armies and smuggled into Mexico via neighboring Guatemala, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City reported to Washington.”

The article also refers to “Fast and Furious,” an element of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ “Project GunRunner” operation that allegedly knowingly allowed more than 1,700 firearms to be smuggled into Mexico from our country, including those that may have been used to murder U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Agent Jaime Zapata in February. Increasingly, the question is who knew about the operation, and when. President Obama has stated that neither he nor Attorney General Eric Holder were aware of the scheme. Holder is said to have told his subordinates that letting guns “walk” to Mexico is wrong and should not be repeated. The McAllen, Tex., newspaper, The Monitor, quotes the Mexican government as saying that it “did not have knowledge on an

operation that included the controlled traffic of weapons in Mexican territory,” and that “The Mexican government has not and will not give any implied or formal authorization for this to happen.” Meanwhile, Fox News reports that U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, today issued a subpoena to the Justice Department demanding that the BATFE respond to his March 16 request for information about the operation, the deadline for which passed on Wednesday. Rep. Issa is quoted as saying, “The unwillingness of this administration—most specifically the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms—to answer questions about this deadly serious matter is deeply troubling.” CBS News similarly reported that “The Department of Justice and ATF have missed repeated deadlines to turn over information and documents” to Congress, and further noted that the investigation of Project GunRunner may significantly delay hearings on President Obama’s nomination of BATFE agent Andrew Traver, an activist gun control supporter, to head the BATFE. The BATFE has until April 13 to respond to Rep. Issa’s subpoena. Stay tuned. About: Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group.
