Video: What Shotguns and Shoes Have in Common - Fit Matters

I was super excited to be invited by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to do a presentation for its R3 Harvest Huddle Hour series about choosing a shotgun that's right for you.

It was, of course, inspired by my long struggle dealing with cross-dominance and a stupid-long neck - both of which taught me the importance of good fit, and inspired me to become adept at adjusting shotgun fit.

That knowledge has come in handy in my volunteer work with scores of new hunters, including lots of women (among whom cross-dominance is common).

The presentation covers:
  • What type of shotgun to buy
  • Understanding gun fit
  • Buying a shotgun
  • Safety considerations
  • Ways to practice with your new gun

Video: Dove hunting for beginners

One of my greatest passions is helping new hunters. Usually I do it at in-person events or on my own YouTube channel, but then Covid happened, and then the world Zoomed.

Here's a recent webinar I did for beginning hunters about how to hunt doves in California.

Lots of mushroom hunters see this treat and pass right on by out of concerns it might be a destroying angel or death cap, which can kill you. Not me and Hank - we love these things! In this video, Hank points out the six traits that confirm this mushroom is an eater.

Op-ed: Ammunition background check disaster in California

When the California Legislature enacted an ammunition background check law in 2016, they said it would be convenient and easy for law-abiding gun owners to go through the check.

The state had three years to develop the regulations for carrying out background checks.

So what happened? The state finalized the regs literally the week before the law went into effect last summer, and did such a bad job on them that literally tens of thousands of ammo purchases by law-abiding gun owners have been rejected.

Click here to read what I've got to say about that.
