I live on an old cattle ranch in the Ozarks that we manage for deer these days. That means, we work with several game cameras – at last count, 8 – to keep track of how the herd is doing. Currently, we’re watching fawns show up as singles or doubles with their moms. Because The […]
Last year, Remington Arms Company rolled out a line of pump-action firearms featuring 14-inch barrels, no stocks, no pistol grips and measuring slightly longer than 26 inches. The line included a model 870 in 12 gauge, followed by its little brother, the 20-gauge Tac-14. How does a firearms manufacturer design and build these sorts of […]
You know how sometimes you read about something and you want to see it? You hope that someday you’ll see it? That started for me when I was a girl, when I read about Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” housed at the Louvre Museum in Paris. Then, I saw it. I read about Lewis and Clark’s […]
By the time we reached Colorado for the last piece in our Grand Slam attempt for wild turkeys last year, Jessica Kallam and I felt defeated. We’d suffered through sweat-lodge blinds in Florida for days on end, with her never seeing a bird, and me taking a shot (and missing) at a turkey that was […]
One of the perks of this gun writing gig is that I get to meet interesting icons. R. Lee Ermey was one. You may remember him from “Full Metal Jacket,” or as Dr. House’s dad, John, in “House,” or from a collection of other popular movies and TV shows. He hosted 2 shows on the […]
I remember when I met Claudia Chisholm, president of Gun Tote’n Mamas, at her first-ever SHOT Show many years ago. It’s a pleasure to have followed the journey of this woman-owned company as it has evolved from a luggage maker into one of the country’s prominent manufacturers of women’s (and men’s) concealed carry bags. Let’s […]

Crimson Trace is the #1 manufacturer of laser sights and lights in America, for several reasons. Throughout the years, we have noticed that Crimson Trace includes women in its marketing campaigns.

This is way overdue. I spent a fabulous 2 weeks in the United Kingdom last fall, and although I think about those experiences almost daily, I have yet to put them down in writing – except for the sea glass outing, where I met a local sea glass artist on the Isle of Skye, Rosie […]
We are delighted to welcome SENTRY Products Group to our team here at Women’s Outdoor News. Here’s why. Sponsored by SENTRY Products Group I just slipped past another decade of life last weekend and the older I get, the more I realize it’s the little things that make a difference, and I’m talking tangible and […]
I’ve been hunting whitetail deer for several years now, and frankly, although I remember all the hunts, some of the details have faded over time. I don’t think the details of this hunt, my first mule deer hunt, will ever leave. It started strangely and as you’ll see, ended in a way I could never […]
We liked the shotgun shell lighted wreath so much over at Girls Guide to Guns that we decided to make a knock-off — with greenery and extra lights, a mini-schnauzer and a fine bottle of Chardonnay thrown into the mix.
