Hunting season is upon us, but I’m not sure how much and to what extent I’ll be able to participate this year. Work has me out and away from my normal hunting grounds, so unless I can get out later in the season, it looks like my freezer may be a bit short of venison this year.
Still, feral hogs are always in season in Texas, and while they’re one of my favorite prey, it’s hard to beat a nice venison backstrap. One of my frustrations with hunting is the difficulty that non-resident hunters have in obtaining licenses in various states. Texas is one of the more friendly non-resident hunting states, while others such as North Dakota (where I am currently) require lottery registration for tags far in advance of the actual hunting season, which makes it difficult for someone with an unpredictable schedule to take the opportunity to hunt when it presents itself.
But enough of my whining.
In a few days I’ll be picking up my new shoulder rig from TheHolsterSite.com for my .44 Magnum Ruger Redhawk as part of my new handgun hunting project. The idea is to have a setup that is light, easily portable (no snagging a slung rifle on trees or shrubs), and still capable of taking large and medium sized game.
If you haven’t had the chance to see the holsters that Michael makes, go check out his site. I’ll wait.
I’ll be posting pictures and a review of the new rig here in the coming days and weeks, and if I have time to venture out into the woods this season, I’ll hopefully have a few hogs or deer to show as well.
