Join Luke as he travels to East Texas to hunt quail with his buddy, Terry Tate.
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.
Luke talks with Texan Terry Tate about their hog hunting experience with big bore air guns.
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.
Luke talks with big bore air rifle designer and builder Terry Tate.
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.
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.
Listen to the extended conversation with Luke and Terry Tate
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.
