The .45 caliber Bushbuck is one badass big bore airgun (that is a 475 grain bullet sitting next to it). Idaho is now allowing big game hunting with big bore airguns starting this fall. We have some deer and elk tags burning holes in our pockets waiting for opening day. Who out there will be the first to take a big game animal in Idaho with a big bore airgun? Tag us if you are hunting with one this year.

We take a look at the Anschutz 17P - 17HMR pistol, then take you with us on a Northern Nevada Ground Squirrel Hunt! Although discontinued, this pistol is a great tool for varmint hunting. It's ease of use and accuracy, make it one of our "must bring" guns when we hit the road for our varmint hunts.
As always, head over to our site to read the entire review and our thoughts, as well as some details from the hunt that were not shown in the video

During SHOT Show in January of 2018, I was asked by then IDFG Commission President Virgil Moore, to begin the process to legalize Big Game hunting with Big Bore Airguns here in Idaho. With invaluable help from folks like @kipperow , @derekcfong and some of the Varminter Team, as well as @airgunsofarizona ( @buchanarobert ) and @airforceairguns , we were able to present an informative presentation to the IDFG Commissioners. Bolstered by @kipperow 's experience and extensive knowledge, the Commission eventually approved this new hunting opportunity here in Idaho.

As hunters here in Idaho begin to hit the field chasing big game (some with Big Bore Airguns) , I will be conducting a seminar to educate/inform around 60 @idahofishandgame educators, staff and wardens on Big Bore Airguns and hunting Big Game. Once again, I was helped immensely by many of the folks that got us to this point.

Idaho Fish and Game is always looking at new ways to increase hunting opportunities for the hunters who hunt in this great state. They deserve recognition for being so thorough while implementing this new opportunity.

I rarely drink caffeine (once every few months), but when I do, this is the stuff that turns me zero to A-Hole in 15 minutes 🙃. You've never seen the terror in CameramanTom's eyes after I pound one of these and get on the freeway! 🥺 😳

From $175 down to $105 for an 5lb keg of #reloder7 ! My local gunship (MidStar Firearms) is blowing out all their reloading supplies, so I picked this up. The way I figure it, these 5 pounds of powder will net me around 2,916 rounds of #17AckleyBee (7000 grains per pound x 5lbs, divided by 12 grains per load. That should last me a little while!

The #24GPC taking out a big, late-season Belding's ground squirrel! @Boomthwap hammered this alfalfa eater with a 90 grain @sierra_bullets GameChanger bullet. It turned him inside-out.

Coming next week! Shooting varmints with a #17HMR handgun is some of the most fun you will ever have in the field. The satisfaction of knowing you were able to hit your target with something so unique, is unforgettable! We get at it on video, so stay-tuned for the video release.

It's happening this weekend! The release of our 3-Minute Ammo Review! This time it's the @hsm_ammo Varmint Blue #223Remington ammunition. We've filed all the flight plans for the ground squirrels who were involved with our video and they've all come back approved! The question is, which one will be the first squirrel sent into space? We will be publishing on a few different platforms, so look for the announcement.

Another .17 Mach2! This one is the old EA Brown and Co. 10/22 conversion in a Magpul stock. It is a blast to shoot and I really wish the barrel/bolt kits were still available! ----------

This would make a really great Varmint Mobile, if it was $10k cheaper!! $21k for this #Roxor. I was told it was more because of the window, winch and some other options. I'm not discounting the versatility and cool factor, so if you can afford it, more power to you! I'm sure they are a blast to roam around in offroad. I'll stick to my air conditioned #Tacoma. -------------------

I just picked-up a Savage A17- 17HMR for $184.00, plus tax at Walmart. Many Walmart's are clearing them out to make room for incoming new stock. Check your local store!

I changed scopes on the @tcarmsco Contender Carbine in 5mm Rimfire. Sight-in with the new Aguila ammo only took 4 shots and the groups were minute of tree squirrel brain at 75 yards. I can't wait to pop some Red and Eastern Fox squirrels with the 5mm soon!

We are finishing up our tests with the @SavageArms A17 in 17 Mach2. I love how smooth the A17s function, when you do your part to clean and lube them. We'll have our final reports published soon.

A 5.56, medium-range, predator poker. AKA: @Stag_Arms Stag-15 Varminter - AR15. It is topped with a Vortex optic and will be dialed in tomorrow. This will be one, of a handful of rifles we are hunting predators with this fall/winter. -----------

Not all modern powders outperform the older standbys. I played with some different 'Lil Gun loads in my Model 43 in .218 Bee rifle. None of the ones I tried came close to my 296 powder load. The difference was night and day, so I'm sticking to my old load.

This morning I was working on some loads for my Martini in 17 Ackley Bee. I had a couple of very good results and have decided on one of them (20 grain Nosler FBHP/RL7 Powder). These will be my red fox loads for this fall/winter.

Doubled-up on the @smithandwessoninc M&P .380 Shield EZ pistols. With all the stuff going on it never hurts to add to your self-defense inventory. Now, the reason for .380 ACPs. About 5 years ago, I broke a small bone in between my right thumb and index finger. After not shooting handguns for a couple of years, I reinjured it while shooting my Glock .40 caliber. I still have my 9s and 40, but I've moved to the .380 for my carry and vehicle handguns, for now. These Smiths are slightly larger than the Ruger LCP I carry, so shooting them is a lot more comfortable. They are nice little guns.

First range day with the Martini .17 Ackley Bee testing some loads. I topped it with a nice @mtcopticsamerica 3-12 scope. It is a perfect, lightweight, fox and bobcat calling/killing gun/caliber. Arizona predators better watch out in a few months!

Well, that's not supposed to happen! 🤔 I only wear my left daily contact while shooting, but this time it popped out behind my shooting glasses and fell on the bench (I do not completely close my left eye while shooting). The world around me suddenly got very fuzzy! 😯 I'm trying a different brand for the next week, so we will see if the issue continues. Who else is shooting with contacts? ----------

We did some range work with #8 different rifles today! Varmint hunting is winding down in Idaho, so that opened up some time to wrap up the testing on a bunch of projects. These reviews and videos will start rolling out next week, along with some cool hunting vids and the long-awaited video on the CZ Model 452 5mm project!

That one shot... Grrr! Using the @franklinarmory F17-SPR AR15 in #17WSM - 75 yards. People ask me which is my favorite 17WSM firearm. This one is my first choice. It functions great, is always dead-on and is so fun to shoot! Shot with the Winchester 20 grain ammo. ----------

There is nothing like hunting in the middle of nowhere! It is exhilarating and at the same time, humbling. We were 35 miles from the nearest town, hunting this huge grassy valley in between some gorgeous mountains. Whether you are in the desert, forest, high mountain grasslands, etc, don't take that time spent there for granted. There are 10s of millions of people in this country who will never get the chance to experience being this far away from people. ---------------
