Fire Eater

Approach Animals from Behind!

The Slug Gun Doctor
While shotguns were never meant to function as rifles, millions of today’s hunters are asking them to do just that. And that’s essentially what makes the tiny Da-Mar Gunsmithing shop with its nondescript storefront a destination at the sleepy cros...

Oh-No-He-Didn't
It's easy for a bowhunting purist to scoff at the notion of taking a deer with a firearm. It's something few riflemen could understand. It's just not the same. Tracy Atchison knows. The 43-year-old railroad track supervisor from Kirwin, Kan., has...
