 Howdy Folks!

Hop in the truck with me.  This week I'm taking you on a wild hog hunting adventure with Billy Kilpatrick and Terry Tate.  Billy and I are headed down to Terry's.  We're hoping Billy will be successful with one of Terry's big bore rifles.

Did you know that there are big bore air rifles on the market shooting over 500 foot pounds of energy which is more than ample for harvesting any animal in North America?

I've been shooting and hunting with air rifles for the past couple years and highlights this week what I considers to be the perfect air rifle for hunting hogs, predators and exotics. It's an easy to handle 45 caliber carbine sporting a 20 inch barrel.

Howdy Folks, today I'm taking you on a quail hunt to Hidden Lakes Hunting Resort.  My buddy, Terry Tate, is on this adventure with me.  Places like this are the only place you'll find quail, they've been gone from there for about 25 years.

Howdy Folks!

I have had quite the adventure spending time with big bore air gun designer and builder,
Terry Tate.   I'm kinda sad to see our time come to an end.

Howdy folks!  You have got to listen to this week's show!  I'm talking with big bore air rifle designer and builder Terry Tate.  We had quite an adventure hog hunting, and I got my first big game with an air rifle.

Howdy folks!

This week I have the pleasure of talking with Terry Tate.  If you recall, he's a designer and builder of big bore air rifles.  He's been giving me lessons before we go out hunting with the air rifles for wild hogs.

I can't wait!

Terry Tate lives in northeast Texas, a place called Cumby.  Last week we talked with him about hunting with air rifles, and this week I asked him to come back to talk about how he discovered his passion for building them. 

Did you know that air rifles have been around since the Fifteenth Century? The Lewis  and Clark Expedition might have failed had it not been for an air rifle! That's right the expedition had only one air rifle but it was capable of shooting multiple shots and shooting them very accurately. The Native Americans encountered  along the way were usually given a demonstration of the 'silent and deadly' big bore rifle. When they saw tight groups shot at extended yardages, from a weapon that was almost as silent as their bows, they were awe struck.
