Guns & Loads Column

As of today I’ll be writing the Guns & Loads column for Whitetail Journal magazine. Ironically, back about 10 years ago, this was he first column I was ever responsible for. That’s the way things go in the outdoor writing world; when editors change, often so do the writers.

But I’m back! And while I’m still not Jack O’Connor or John Barsness, I do write a bit better than I used to and now you can expect a little hillbilly in every column. The best part is I’ll be writing about the tools you can use to hunt the worlds premier game animal. The first topic will be practice drills and tips that will help you become a better shot on whitetail deer. So get out your 30-30, buy a couple boxes of ammo and a pouch of Levi Garrett. Its time to get ready for deer season.

    My 30-30 has been in a state of “ready” since the day it was placed in my hands. As far as the chew and shells, I probably have plenty under the seat of my truck. Congrats on the column!
