Christensen Arms Ridgeline 28 Nosler – Review

Category : Hunting, Long Range, Rifles, Shooting Gear Review, Stocks, Tactical

Ridgleline-and-Elk

Last year I decided I wanted to hunt with a lighter long-range rifle. My first thought was to build one because I’ve had success doing it in the past.  I soon realized I was going to spend over $3500 in order to build a rifle that weighed in around 6.5 lbs. and that was still capable of consistently making a 1000 yard shot on game.

Lucky Duck Revolution E Caller – Predator Call

Category : Hunting

Lucky-Duck-Revolution-4-coyotes

In November of 2016, my dad introduced me to one of his friends that had recently won the World Coyote Calling Championship.   I had the opportunity to pick his brain about coyote equipment and he told me that the Lucky Duck Revolution E-Caller was the best electronic call he’d ever heard.  The next day I did some research and found that my local Cabela’s had one in stock.  I called and Cabela’s held it for me until I could drive the hour to go pick it up.

SnipePod Bipod Review

Category : Bipods, Hunting, Long Range, Shooting Gear Review, Video

A good bipod can extend the effective range of almost any shooter.  For lightweight hunting, the SnipePod has no equal that I am aware of and I’ve tried just about every bipod made for hunting. The reason its superior is because of its ability to be rapidly deployed, its weight, lack of bulk, versatility, and its minimal impact on zero.

EHP Digital Electronic Ear Plugs EHP-MC1 Review

Category : Competition, Handguns, Hunting, Shooting Gear Review

The EHP-MC1 is rated at 29 N.R.R which is superior to most large shooting muffs.

EHP hasn’t responded to emails, calls or other efforts to contact them. They seem to have fallen off of the earth. Unless we hear something from them in the near future we’ll be removing this review. 

My thoughts were skeptical when I found that EHP (Electronic Hearing Protection) was making in ear digital electronic shooting plugs (EHP-MC1)  by hand in the USA for a very reasonable price. Putting my skepticism aside I ordered a pair and joined the ranks of those I’ve envied for years.  I have now shot 3 gun, IDPA matches, and a mountain lion (see pics below) using the EHP in-ear-canal digital plugs.

Savage Long Range .338 Lapua Hunting Rifle (SHOT Show Video)

Category : Hunting, Long Range, Rifles, SHOT Show 2011, Tactical, Video


Savage decided that for the 2011 SHOT Show they would introduce a new lightweight hunting rifle in .338 Lapua. There wasn’t a lot of hype about it but it was one of the coolest things we saw there. Custom .338 hunting rifles are the rage
