Show Sponsor

Purchase the Hunting Guns 101 online training and you'll learn the essentials of practical ballistics and what firearms, sighting systems, cartridges, and ammunition you should be using on your future hunts to improve your odds of success afield.

You will also learn things like:

  • The clever (and extremely successful) way legendary hunters like Jack O'Connor and Theodore Roosevelt sighted in their hunting rifles to give them the longest possible effective range afield in the days before laser rangefinders.
  • The little known, but vitally important characteristics true experts look at when evaluating cartridges and specific bullets for a particular hunting situation (and I’m not talking about kinetic energy).
  • The real reasons why bullets will sometimes unexpectedly fail on big game and how to avoid those situations.
  • The important task most people forget to do when traveling a long distance with their rifle for a hunt that can be the difference between success and failure afield.
  • Four different, very specific, and sometimes counterintuitive combinations of bullet characteristics and performance that are virtually guaranteed to deliver extremely quick kills and short tracking jobs on almost any species of big game in the world.
  • And much more
