    Video: Leveraxe Makes Splitting Logs Look Easy-5


    We recently raved about some of our favorite short axes and hatchets, but this new heavy-duty log splitter qualifies for the big leagues. The Vipukirves Leveraxe may be one of the coolest, most-applicable tools designed for campers and wood-stove users alike. Applying an offset center of gravity, the ax creates a lever mechanism upon striking the wood and allows the user to almost effortlessly split stumps into perfectly-sized logs for the fire.

    Video: New KUIU Mountain Star Tent vs. Airboat-4


    Since it started in 2011, Kuiu has produced some of the finest mountain hunting gear on the planet. In the past, their efforts have focused mainly on apparel and packs, but for 2014 they have come out with a tent designed to withstand the strafing winds encountered by sheep and goat hunters on the highest peaks in North America.

    We haven’t had a chance to test the Mountain Star Tent yet, but the first thing that caught our eye when looking at the photos is that, rather than sitting between the tent and the fly, the pole system serves as an exoskeleton over the tent’s fly. According to the press release Kuiu sent out this afternoon: “The unique, freestanding design of the Mountain Star Tent maximizes stability and increases structural integrity in the wind.”

    Father's Day Gift Guide 2013: Best Hunting, Fishing, and Shooting Gear for Your Dad-2


    He's the man who taught you how to shoot a B.B. gun, throw a baseball, and pop open a beer bottle with a knife. The least you can do is get him a decent Father's Day gift.

    Check out our editors' top gift choices for your first, and best, hunting buddy. From handguns and knives to boots and jackets, this round up has it all.


    Zippo Woodsman
    I’m a hatchet man. There may be no other tool that’s as capable of handling so many outdoors tasks: whittling a spear, splitting a buck’s brisket, limbing a tree, pounding tent pegs, truing a table, defending a family… But Zippo’s new Woodsman tool may trump even a 3-pound hatchet. The versatile Woodsman features a mallet, a keen-edged hatchet, a peg-pulling claw, and a tempered saw blade that’s capable of making quick work of limbs up to 4 inches in diameter. It pulls hard duty cleaning up deadfall in my back yard and is a fixture in my pickup. ($80, —Andrew McKean

    Tony Knight: Father of In-Line Muzzleloading Passes-0


    From the late-1980s through the mid-90s, it seems that every hunter who I ran into during muzzleloader deer season toted the same gun: a Knight MK-85. The first mass-produced “in-line, modern muzzleloader,” the Knight Rifle revolutionized the blackpowder hunting game, not to mention most state regulations.

    Once the bailiwick of the coon-skin cap wearing crowd, primitive weapons hunts truly became a sport for the masses once in-line guns were produced.

    Fantasy Gift Guide: 5 Christmas Presents that are Way Too Expensive-4


    Dear Santa,

    I hope this letter finds you well and your reindeer still bullet and arrow free. (Seriously, how has no one taken out Rudolph yet? I mean he carries around a spotlight that all but targets him in early morning and late afternoon and begs to be made the focus of one heck of a taxidermy mount!)

    This year I’ve limited my wish list to five major items and while they total a little over half a million dollars, I think we’d both agree that I’ve been exceptionally good this year.

    Tough Mother Foils Robbery-2


    We all know Gert Boyle as the stern and humorless head of Columbia Sportswear, who used her son Tim as a lab rat to test their gear in a number of hilarious television commercials. Her moniker, “One Tough Mother,” took on a new meaning for a would-be robber and kidnapper last week.

    According to a report on AOL News, Boyle returned to her West Linn, Oregon, home last Wednesday to find a man in her driveway posing as a deliveryman. The man approached the 86-year-old Boyle, drew a gun and ordered her to lead him into her home. She complied with his initial request, but as she was disarming her home’s security system, she tripped a silent alarm that notified local authorities that help was needed.
