Will Primos sold the famous hunting products company bearing his name back in 2006. That hasn’t slowed him down. In fact, stepping away from the day-to-day operations of running Primos has allowed Will to focus on what matters most to him: advocating for hunting. [ Read Full Post ]

The gobbler was, hands down, the worst-looking bird I had ever seen in the woods—bedraggled, war-torn, beat up. Though he had four hens, I was convinced that the tom was one of those loud-mouthed 2-year-olds that had gotten his butt kicked for trying to lay claim to a more dominant bird’s territory. Missing his center tail feathers, the bird sported a short, wispy beard and rarely gobbled unless he was in a tree.
While scouting him one morning, I spied two adult gobblers attempting to join Mr. Tailfeather’s party. He would have none of it. The gobbler’s demeanor changed the instant those toms stepped into his field. First he began gobbling—often, hard, and unprovoked by hen calling. Then, the race and subsequent beat-down was on.

I’m proud to say that my good buddy, Ray Eye, has taught me most of what I know about turkey hunting. He called in my first bird back in the mid-80s and in one way or another we’ve shared the spring—and fall—woods ever since.
Through the years, I’ve had the good fortune of chasing gobblers with some of the legends of modern day turkey hunting but can say with a heaping dose of conviction that no one sounds more like a turkey than Ray. [ Read Full Post ]
Hunters know that nature can be pretty brutal, and this video confirms it.
The two 9-year-old dominant male lions attacked and killed a younger male lion who got caught chasing a buffalo into their territory.
According to the video description, the footage was shot on the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.
