Rigged Up: What You Need for Hunting Season 2

Posted on November 02, 2014 by Brooke Chaplan
Hunting

It takes a lot of work to prepare for hunting season.

Planning for the next hunting season begins the day after hunting season ends. You need to check and repair your gear, clean your weapons, and replace broken items to be sure the following year’s hunt is even more successful. Read the list below for items you may need to buy, replace, or repair for hunting season.

Track Locations
The first day of hunting season is not the day to scout your locations. Scout your locations early and often. At the very least, identify and map the areas you plan to hunt using Google Maps. A GPS is extremely helpful when tracking locations as well. A properly-placed camera with a motion capture device attached will keep track of what animals are in the area and give you an idea about the most trafficked areas.

Posted on April 15, 2014 by Brian Braindeaux

Many of our favorite sports have changed drastically over the last few decades; with some becoming obsolete altogether. Some of the sports that were popular with the rich and famous are now sports we all play on a regular basis whereas some sports we all used to play are now nowhere to be seen.

Back in 1946, Formula One became the premier single seated racing sport in the world, and it hasn’t given up that title to any other motorsport. Pre-war regulations used to determine the engine capacity of the racing cars, with manufacturers such as Alfa Romeo leading the way in the competition. 4.5 liter cars were allowed, non-supercharged, to race against a supercharged 1.5 liter model. With only a handful of manufacturers being able to compete, the competition was unlike anything sports lovers had ever seen before. Now, the regulations and the cars have changed exponentially, making the competition faster, more thrilling and far more expensive. The Formula One today is followed by millions of motorsport’s fans; some of which travel the globe in order to watch their favorite driver or team. Although the adrenaline rush of motorsports is far greater now, there was something so fantastic about motorsports back then. We think the traditional sport beats the modern day version, hands down.

      Anyone who is familiar with former NFL quarterback Billy Kilmer probably remembers him as the portly, un-athletic, but very tough quarterback for the Washington Redskins in the 1970s.
