” Southern Ontario Shotgun Hunt December 2013 “
” A 57-year-old ban on silencers, the noise-suppressing devices that are used to muffle the sound of a gunshot, could be lifted this week.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will meet this Thursday in Key Largo to discuss the issue. Advocates say the rule change would be good for a hunter’s health. According to hunters, manufacturers, and the National Rifle Association, a suppressor can protect a hunter’s hearing from the loud bang that is heard while hunting in the field or shooting at a gun range. It would also allow sportsmen to shoot near residential areas without disturbing residents. “
” Hundreds of different bolt-action rifles originated in Europe and the United States, and today hunters have a wide selection of turnbolt rifles to meet every hunting situation and budget. The modern bolt-action rifle is lighter and more accurate than at any time in history. Over the past several years there have been numerous upgrades to bolt-action design in the form of synthetic stocks, improved finishes and better machining, but today’s rifles remain very much true to original designs.
A few bolt-action designs stand out as the best in history. Some have a reputation for rock-solid dependability, some have become hunting field favorites, and others have revolutionized bolt gun design. Certain guns, such as the Winchester Model 70, have been the basis for a number of other, later designs that have also been successful. Others, such as the Remington Model 700, have become so widely accepted by shooters and hunters that you’ll find one in virtually every hunting camp in the country. However, all of these guns, have earned a place in history as the best bolt guns ever created.
Here’s a look at the 10 best bolt guns of all time. Be sure to vote for your favorite and enter the debate! “

” Given the growing frequency with which zombies appear in movies, TV shows, and your worst nightmares, it’s inevitable the zombie apocalypse will soon be upon us. When it comes to surviving this inevitable showdown with the undead, location is everything. Do you live in a state populated with zealous zombie fighters capable of beating back hordes of brain-hungry walking dead? Estately answered this question with its Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Rankings, which were determined using the 11 metrics below that measure fighting ability, knowledge of zombies, physical fitness, and access to weapons…
Active Military Personnel: States with more soldiers per capita means states with more people who are physically fit, trained to fight, and have access to weapons (source).
Military Veterans: Percentage of veterans per capita is a solid way of measuring fighting experience (source).
Physically Active: States with residents who rarely get out of their Laz-E-Boy will not escape the zombie menace (source).
Martial Arts Enthusiasts: Hand-to-hand combat is an important skill when the ammo runs out (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “martial arts” as an interest).
People with Survival Skills: In the long run, knowing how to survive without modern conveniences in a collapsed society will be critical (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “survival skills” as an interest).
People with Knowledge of Zombies: To know your enemy you must know their ways (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “zombies, Resident Evil, Zombieland, and The Walking Dead” as interests).
Laser Tag Enthusiasts: Yes, laser tag. Few things prepare you for a zombie attack in enclosed space (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “laser tag” as an interest).
People with Guns: Shooting a zombie in the head is really the best way to defeat a zombie, and to do that you need a gun (source).
Obesity: The obesity epidemic will yield to the zombie epidemic because the obese will struggle with running away from zombies. It’s really very simple (source).
Paintball Enthusiasts: Those who can slink around the woods unnoticed while splattering their enemies with paint will find success shooting zombies in nature (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “paintball” as an interest).
Triathletes: When everything breaks down, running, swimming, and bicycling will be ideal ways to escape zombies (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “Ironman triathlon” as an interest).
Below is a complete ranking of the 50 states based on zombie apocalypse preparedness. Those at the top are the most likely to survive and those at the bottom are the least likely to. Scores are per capita rankings for each category.”
Despite being physically fit, residents of Massachusetts are almost completely lacking in knowledge of zombies. Ignorance is not bliss, it’s very costly in a zombie apocalypse.
The Tennessee Zombie Response Unit has its work cut out for it because the rest of state is ill prepared to battle the undead. Tennesseans should abandon their company softball teams and form paintball teams instead.
For Louisiana, the downside of letting the good times roll is it makes it very difficult outrun the living dead. Lack of physical fitness and limited knowledge of zombies dooms the great state of Louisiana… once it runs out of ammunition.
Here’s a plan—Alabama confronts its obesity by training for the Alabama Biathalon. It’s a variation of the winter sport, but instead of cross-country skiing you just run around the woods with a gun shooting at everything. It’s like hunting season, but you can’t bring a 24-pack of beer.
Residents of Connecticut should either begin playing laser tag or start seasoning themselves because if the zombie apocalypse started today they’d get eaten up as appetizers.
Even though The Walking Dead is set in Georgia, residents there have little interest in zombies. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, the undead will discover Georgia brains are as sweet as Georgia peaches.
If there were New York travel brochure for zombies it would tout the state’s lack of veterans, limited enthusiasm for survival skills, and scarcity of firearms.
49th—DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Our nation’s capital has almost no knowledge of zombies, martial arts, or firearm ownership. It’s going to be an all-you-can-eat brain buffet for the zombies.
M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-Die. Everybody is going to die. From zombies.
If the zombie apocalypse began today, and you live in New Jersey, the odds are 100% that you’ve already been bitten and have become a zombie, unless you took a course from New Jersey’s own Zombie Survival Course. It’s real, and it could definitely save your life… even though they criticized our article (video proof).

” Patriots celebrate as the Clark County Sheriff’s Office announce that they are ordering BLM agents off of the land in dispute.”
” Though all sorts of guns made their debut at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas back in January, of particular interest are five of the best new bolt action hunting rifles that were introduced before, during and after the show.
Presented in alphabetical order are what we consider the best new hunting rifles of the year.”
” Building on the popularity of these 10+1 capacity guns in 5.56mm, the new Mossberg MVP Series Varmint Bolt-Action Rifle is optimized for premier varmint and predator control. Its patent-pending drop-push bolt-action actually accepts AR-15 .223/5.56 NATO magazines, giving it a real oomph-factor. A 10-round magazine is included in the initial $600 price tag, and we can’t help but think about the customization we could do to this bad boy.”

” A hunter in Bertie County shoots and kills a 500-pound wild hog.
The massive animal didn’t stand a chance against veteran hunter Jett Webb’s .308 caliber rifle.
” It was very surreal,” recalls Webb. “It was a shock. It was very humbling to say the least, when you walk up on a beast that big and you say, ‘Oh my gosh. I had no idea that there could be something that big running around the woods of Eastern North Carolina.’”
” Last month Webb spotted the beast roaming near the Indian Woods on land leased by the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club. It was the same one other hunters had been vying for since capturing it on trail cameras years ago.
” The Mohawk down the back,” Webb describes, “the tusks really lean, the muscular big front end. This is far from a domesticated docile pig that we’re used to.”
Mike Mansell, president of the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club, agrees this size hog game is rare.
“ It takes your breath away for a second to realize how big this hog is,” he says. “It took up the entire bed of the pick-up truck.” “

” The fearless 11-year-old took action when she saw the cougar following her 13-year-old brother as he was walking towards their home in the town of Twisp, population 940.
In a phone interview with MailOnline Wednesday night, Shelby’s grandfather, William White, revealed that it was a fourth cougar killed on his property in the past several weeks.
Mr White, 64, a cattle rancher, said that earlier this month, Shelby’s 13-year-old brother, Tanner, also shot a cougar that has been circling his farm.
‘ We’re real avid hunters,’ Mr White said of his clan, which he described as ‘backwoodsy.’ .
The rancher explained that until recently, local residents were able to keep the cougar population in check by hunting the predators with dogs, but two years ago, the local Legislature outlawed the practice.”

” MasterPiece Arms is continuing the development of their new and original MPAR series of rifles with the latest edition chambered for 6.8mm Remington SPC. A capable hunting cartridge, the rifle is finished to suit with a Vista Camo hydrographic pattern.
The company plans to introduce more 6.8 SPC MPAR rifles in the future with ATACS camo and matte black finishes, as they have done with their MPAR 5.56 rifles.
Like the other MPAR rifles, it is a carbine with a 16-inch barrel, adjustable telescopic, folding buttstock, modular free-floating handguard and short-stroke gas piston operating system. The hand guard has fixed Picatinny rails on the top and bottom but can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs with optional side rails. By default the hand guard is fit with quick-detach sling points on both side to match the QD sling points on the stock.”

” The guide to hunting blades presented in this infographic really helps to identify the best knives for the intended purpose.
The team at USAKnifeShop.com came out with this nifty infographic a while back, and we thought it would be helful for all the hunters out there, looking for something to skin a deer, clean a bird or just complete some basic outdoor tasks.”
” Meet Rosy, the Peregrine Falcon. Suzanne Amadore Kane of Haverford College and Eddy De Mol, Valerie Collete, and Francois Lorrain teamed up to outfit Rosy with a camera that records what Rosy’s world is like. Like the bald eagle, the Peregrine falcon was once on the endangered species list but has been taken off it and is making a great come back in the wild.
Nothing like this has ever been recorded before. The original paper was published in The Journal of Experimental Biology last summer but the video footage from the research was only put on-line a week ago.”
” The MMR is based on Montana’s greasy-slick, unstoppable rotary-extractor action and is equipped with a 24-inch, fluted, Montana #6 contour barrel with a removable muzzle brake. The stock is target-style and can be adjusted for comb height and length of pull. Instead of the classic Model 70 trigger, which is standard for Montana, they use a Timney which can be set at 2 ½ pounds. Calibers include .308, .260 Remington, 6.5/284, .300 Win Mag (if is isn’t in the lineup, whine at them and they’ll build one) and a special version in .338 Lapua. All the metal is Cerakoted in case you want to shoot in the rain, sleet, and snow. Weight is 12 pounds.”
” Researchers in South Africa were recently able to capture amazing footage of a tigerfish leaping out of the water and snatching a bird in flight. This is thought to be the first evidence of a freshwater fish “catching birds on the wing,” the BBC says. “
M400 Predator rifles are chambered for .223 Rem./5.56x45mm, and feature an 18- or 22-inch threaded stainless steel barrel with 1-in-8 twist. A flat-top receiver with Hogue free floating handguard complete the upper receiver group.”
