Greg Hackney Hunting Coons with Dogs

If you like to hunt year round there are a few options you can take advantage. One of those activities is raccoon hunting with dogs. With a year-round open season on racoons, the Sportsman TV set out on a night time coon hunt recently. The trick was finding the right set of dogs. With no connection to any raccoon hunters, producer Jared Serigne took to Facebook to find the right combo of hunters and dogs for the episode- that’s when he found Coon Commander Outdoors.

Investing in a chamber vacuum sealer is something every serious hunter and fisherman should consider if you’re looking for the most effective and economical way to freeze wet or dry wild game, fish and cooked meals. 

And I can tell you this amazing machine will eventually pay for itself because of the inexpensive cost of the bags.

It’s (finally) time to talk turkey

The delay of the 2018 turkey season until April 7 has no doubt been an agonizing wait for members of the Tenth Legion, but now this elite group of hunters are in action. I suspect many got things started on March 30 with the opening of the youth weekend. My 7-year-old grandson worked the squirrels over in February, and is ready to be in the turkey blind on that day.
