Why the .22-250 Remington?


No Comments

What the heck is a .22-250 Remington good for? Rabbits. Deer. Elk. Seriously. This little hot-rod of a .22-caliber centerfire has been used to terminate everything from tiny ground squirrels not much larger than mice to Rocky Mountain elk.

Any bullet through the chest will do the job, but what are the best cartridges for reaching across the vast, windy plains to […]

Just a Little Farther

Asian Salad

I think it’s safe to assume that most venison doesn’t end up in a salad. Oh sure, you might pile some seasoned ground deer meat onto a taco salad, but really, it’s a rare occasion. As long as I’m on the subject, too many people grind way too much of their deer meat into burger. […]

We’re knocking on the door of April as I write this, and like many deer hunters, I’m anxiously awaiting the turkey season. I know some guys who only hunt deer, and a few that only hunt turkeys….but most of the time there’s a huge crossover of folk who chase both with equal glee and abandon. […]
