Humdrum should never describe our shooting range experience. Pack up the guns and ammo, go to the range, shoot at a paper target, reload, repeat. It takes a disciplined person to do this on a regular basis, but if you’ll add in a little “fun factor”, you might find that range drills can be both […]
This should have probably been a first week of January letter, but I bought a house and moved over the holidays … so, it was anything but restful. Now that I am relatively settled, I’m finally finding some time to catch up on a few things – namely my Syren Savvy column. Let’s look back […]
“Archers strive to shoot the perfect score. That is our goal. NASP on the other hand, has perfect archers striving for their personal best,” says Lisa Frye, Kentucky State NASP Coordinator. Frye’s words come just after, Paige Robbins, a NASP® student who attends Simon Kenton High School in KY shot a perfect 300, a rare […]

The following blog is an excerpt from Uncovering the Life of the Original American Patriot by the National Park Foundation. His teeth weren’t all there, and his formal military training was lacking, but that didn’t stop a surveyor and gentleman farmer from Virginia from rising through the ranks to become America’s first president. George Washington set an […]
It’s hard to think of how to best tell about the first day my daughter went on her first turkey hunt. Thinking how to best do it justice. I know as her mother, her best friend, her biggest fan, it was a day my heart found another level of happiness in. This story is not […]

Every year in January, the firearms industry convenes at SHOT Show to showcase new products and conduct business. It’s a crazy week, full of much to see. After a few years, it seems that maybe someone has a new banner or branding, but there’s a lot going on in the firearms industry that doesn’t seem […]
I developed a passion for wingshooting at a very young age. From watching the bird dogs work to the comradery during and after a hunt, wingshooting is a special type of hunting that will always be unique for me. Recently I got exposed to duck hunting (in Northern California) and have become addicted! Based on […]

Obstacles, or challenges, whatever you like to call it, can and will show up in many different forms and if you allow it, can cause mayhem when it comes to Bass Fishing.
