  • Back Shooting! - It’s good to be back shooting. I took a look and my last time out to practice shooting was August of 2014. Except for getting out to the range for a short while in 2016 for a sighting check on my game rifles and a couple of shots at game, I haven’t fired a rifle …
  • Awesome Hog and Predator Light - Out this last weekend with the SOGNET group for some deer hunting. The we headed out at night for some hog hunting. I broke out my XLR 250 Kill Light® and the group was impressed. It gives you complete target vision at distances at or exceeding 250+ yards with eye shine visible up to 500 …
  • Do-It-Yourself Electronic Predator Caller - I wanted an electronic caller, but it wasn’t (and isn’t) in the budget. But a little foray into the garage yielded the parts needed to put my own together.  If you had to go out and buy all the parts, it would probably run about $80.  It’s not wireless, yet, but it works and works …
  • Prime Times for Fishing (and Hunting) - This is undoubtedly the easiest to use and most informative ‘prime time’ tool I’ve run across.  The ability to look at wind, sunshine, precipitation, and humidity, along with the sun/moon phased ‘prime time’ calendar, makes it supurb. US Prime Times
  • First Hog - Well, a noob at this, bit I still settled down and made the shot count. I saw the group trotting along at about 80 yards, so I had the opportunity to drop prone and put down the bi-pod legs. (1st noob mistake – can’t track running hogs with a bi-pod.) Got the rifle up on …
  • A Thanksgiving Tradition Remembered - I never thought it would happen in my lifetime, yet last year the entire Thanksgiving weekend went by and I never once heard the playing of “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” on the radio.  Whether you were anti-war or not (and I was not), the song was/is a classic.  So for those of my generation that want …
  • Lile Knife and Lindauer Sheath - Sometime, way back, my father Vane Lamar Lindsay purchased two knives from Jimmy Lile.  My brother Lamar Paul now has one and I (Andrew Lamar) have the other.  Jimmy Lile was known as “The Arkansas Knife Maker” and also as the “Gentleman Knife Maker”.  He was well known within the custom knife making trade and …
  • 2013-09-22 Field Report – New CZ 452 Ultra Lux in .22 LR - Well, I sold my CZ 452 Military Trainer in .22 LR and replaced it with an Ultra Lux.  The Trainer shot great and with so many great reports I was hoping that I wasn’t trading down.  But as I’m really enjoying offhand shooting with irons I wanted the longer sight radius the Ultra Lux offers. …
  • 2013-08-25 Shooting at Rudy’s - My wife really does love me!  So we got home from our Anniversary fishing trip and get-away in the middle of the afternoon.  We did a few things around the house and then relaxed.  Jean was going to head over to some friends to help with some post surgical care and spend the night.  So …
  • 29th Anniversary - Married 29 years ago today and we still enjoy doing the same things together. The day after our wedding we were in Minnesota fishing and sailing. We’re not in Minnesota, but we did hop on over to Lewisville, got a room, and have been out fishing since early morning. Outside and fishing with the love …
  • 2013-08-10 Shooting at Rudy’s - I got to head out to Rudy’s for the first time after he offered to let me shoot on his property.  After measuring and clearing brush for about an hour, so I could shoot prone at 50 yards and still have an embankment as a safe background, I was exhausted, breathing deep, and my pulse …
