Back before refrigerators and freezers were in every home in America, everyone used to can most of their food to preserve it for future use. Everything from pork to chicken to fruits and veggies were put into glass jars and processed to seal in freshness. As time went on and we became more modernized and our lives became busier we found it easier to just purchase our canned goods from the grocery store instead of doing it ourselves. Not saying this is a bad thing, because not everyone now days has the ability to grow their own fruits and veggies, hunt and fish, or grow their own chickens, hogs, and beef to process.
In today’s economy it is more important than ever to revert back to some of the old ways of doing things, such as ...

I know different states have different rules about wearing orange when you are out turkey hunting and I have recently seen some discussions about it. There are alot of people that think you should wear orange so other hunters know you are there, but we all know how great a turkeys eyesight is so it makes it hard to get them to come close enough for the kill shot as opposed to wearing full como. As I was growing up I was always told to identify my target before I shoot, but apparently some people never got this message, so I wear full camo and make sure I have nothing with any color that may be mistaken for the head of a turkey. If I am sitting in the woods and I see another hunter walking thru I make my presence known to him just in case ...

I am excited to announce another new product coming soon to www.yourshooterssupply.com. It is the new 4-L (last light lazer locator) Lazer Locator that was invented by a fellow hunter from Ontario, Canada. As most hunters know, the best time for Deer hunting is in the early morning or the late afternoon as the sun goes down. Let’s say you are in your stand and you see a nice buck around 200 yards away and he is in some thick brush. The sun is getting low in the sky and he is taking his good ole time working his way out where you can get a good shot. Finally he steps out into the open and you take your shot. The deer jumps up in the air, turns, and heads back into the thick brush. You know you hit him so you wait awhile for him to ...

I am pleased to announce that I have teamed up with some new suppliers and will be showcasing some new products on my website as well as in local shops in the Pa area. It is a daunting task to come up with new products that the hunting and shooting communities will like and actually be able to use out in the field, so I was pleasantly surprised when a gentleman contacted me about a new deer call system that he had developed and wanted to know if I wanted to sell it on my website. He is currently working with several businesses that are going to endorse his product so this will help get the word out and make this the next big thing on the market today. Although he developed this for the archery hunter, I feel it would work well in the ...

There are alot of businesses out there now days that cater to the hunting and shooting industry, from the large chain stores like Gander Mt., Cabellas, Dicks, and Bass Pro to the local mom and pop gun shop down the road to thousands of online stores. I had recently lost my job, so I was looking for something I could do to earn a little money till I found another job, (which has been very hard in this economy), so I started an online business to sell hunting and shooting supplies.
Being new to the online selling business, I knew I would need to do something different to stand out from all the others that are out there so I researched many other sites and suppliers to see what was out there. Some of the biggest problems I seen have been ......

Being that I operate a website that sells hunting and shooting supplies, and I am an avid hunter, you can’t help but notice how technology has make its way into the turkey call industry. As I research what new products are out there for 2013, I notice an increasing number of electronic calls on the market. Now, being the older fella that I am, I have to wonder if these calls can really be as good as the old box call or mouth call. I gotta say that it can’t get much easier that just pressing a button on a little box compared to practicing for months, or even years, to get the sound just right. I actually saw the other day you can even upload differt game calls onto your smartphone to use when hunting, so yes, there is an App .........

With spring turkey hunting just around the corner there are a few things you will want to do now to be ready for that opening day in your area. To me, the most important thing to do first is get out into the woods and scout for birds in your hunting area. As you know, you can hunt for a lifetime, but if there are no birds around that will be all you do is hunt and not enjoy the kill also. So, what do you look for? If you are lucky enough to have some snow on the ground you can just walk around in the area you like to hunt and look for tracks, areas they have been scratching the ground for food, or actual birds themselves. This would be a great time to take a youngster along to help get them interested in the sport and start teaching them ...

As I sit here at the computer with the low winter sun shining through the window warming my face, I can’t help but think about the fun we had deer hunting this past season. One of the best things about hunting is just being outdoors getting in touch with nature. While you sit in your stand you get to hear some wonderful sounds from the birds, squirrels, turkey, and other animals. Another favorite of mine is getting to spend quality time with my family and friends remembering hunting seasons from the past and looking toward the future.
Now that we are in the cold month of January, deer season is over but it is now a good time to get outdoors and look for signs of deer that make it through and maybe find yourself some nice sheds ...

During the past month since the Newtown Ct. shootings, the issue of gun control has been a very hot topic of discussion. I am an avid hunter and sportsman that owns a website called yourshooterssupply.com, and I am constantly reading articles and blogs about the subject and trying to find new suppliers from the hunting and shooting industry to put their products on my site. With the talk from the President on banning assult weapons, high cap. magizines, and restricting ammo sales, the demand for these items has gone thru the roof. In my opinion there is nothing about these items that are dangerous, but more so it’s the hands they are in that make them that way.
Through all of the debate, the one thing that noone seems to be talking...

I had read a story the other day about an older gentleman talking about how he was raised around guns and it got me to thinking about the differences from then to now in my life and family.
I was born in 1965, the youngest of 3 boys, on a big farm in central Pa. For as long as I can remember guns were always a big part of our lives. Not only did they help put food on the table, they were a sort of fun and relaxation after a long working season on the farm. When we were young we always had toy guns and my father would use them to teach us the do’s and don’ts of proper gun safety. By the time we were around 6 or 7 we got a daisy BB gun and we thought that was just the cats meow. Now we could go hunting with pap and dad, or at ...
