South Texas Predator Hunt: March 2014

If you’re like me, you find yourself in a bit of a hunting lull during the last part of winter through the beginning of spring.

The remedy I have found for such a situation is predator hunting, and one of the best places to get your predator-hunting fix is in South Texas.

It's not every day that you get the opportunity to fire the largest caliber shoulder fired rifle in the world, the mighty .700 Nitro Express double rifle.

Those are the stats of the gun, here are the stats of the shooter: Cameron Mitchell: Height- 6'4", Weight- 230lbs, Brain cells- Not many apparently! Mr. Bill Jones of Birmingham, Alabama owns this rifle and many, many more equally impressive firearms including Ernest...

Shooting Lighted Nocks at 70 yards
Posted by Cameron Mitchell | 7.24.13

I got the Mathews Z7 and video camera out the other night and took a few 70 yard shots. There are some great benefits to using lighted nocks. They help in game/arrow recovery, provide better feedback on shot placement and they look really cool! There are several great nocks on the market today and the ones I'm shooting here are the Easton Tracers. They glow very bright and have an long battery life.
