I understand. If you don't have respect for your game and hunting disciplines you're not a hunter, just a killer.

any interest in the Airbow?
http://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Benjamin_Pioneer_Airbow/3894


It was offered to me, and I did think about it for a little while.

I probably can still get Crosman to send me one for reviewing, but being an @=S+S%^$#/bowhunter I'm conflicted on the product, it goes against all I believe in Archery.


LOL, didn't realise that the word A r c h e r would be banned :):)  funny about those auto correct :)

Great video!

How are you mounting your camcorder on your scope?


Thanks,
 I use the one that Bullfrog sells, they are intended to be used for the camera to record through the scope, but I flip it around and I have the camera above the scope

Got a link to that camera mount? I couldn't come up with anything with a Google search.

I think the company is called Flodida outdoors but I'm not 100% sure,

you could PM Bullfrog and talk directly to him, that would be the best way.

This the one?

http://shop.oldfloridaoutdoors.com/Scope-Camcorder-Mount-001.htm

That's my mount. I have been sold out for some time. I'm not sure whether I'm going to do another production run or not. PM me and I can possibly hook you up with an extra I have laying around.

Edited 10/2/16
I've done a new production run for my mounts and have some in stock. PM if interested.

I think a Pumper Hog would be stretching my luck :) :) :)

I'm excited about getting a new true hunter in, Expecting to put many miles on my boots :)

It would be the triple crown of hog hunting.

If you havent tried RWS pellets in a while give them a try.

You just got to love the "dang" auto correct!  I love it to death!

You just keep on breaking new ground with airguns.

Apparently 17 fpe is the new minimum for young pigs?

maybe, in the hands of an expert that can guage the limits of the rifle.

Thank you for everything that you do Manny.  If not for this kind of evidence, we would probably still be restricted to rimfire for small game across the country!

Nice shot :)
