We hope you’ve already filled a bow tag this season and tasted backstraps again. If not, you’ve still got time to get in on the action. Turn to page 11 to take a look at some of the latest hunting firearms for 2018. We inspected cham- bers, pulled triggers and checked accuracy on a bunch of fine options. It might be time for you to up your game and spring for a new deer or coyote gun. Or you might just want to see what’s out there. Either way, we’re sure you’ll be triggered to get out in the woods, field or treestand.…

Venture Scout Builds 200 Fish Attractors MADDY AGERS, of St. Louis, believes in the Scout tradition of good deeds, but instead of helping a little old lady across the street, she created 200 fish-attracting structures at Jerry P. Combs Lake east of Kennett. Agers joined Venturing, a co-ed program of Boy Scouts of America (BSA) in 2014 and tackled the fish-attractor project as part of her quest for the Hornaday Award, which focuses on conservation. Deer Feeding Restrictions Expanded THE MISSOURI Department of Conservation (MDC) has expanded restrictions on feeding or placing minerals for deer to seven new counties in response to new cases of chronic wasting disease.

BOLT-ACTION BROWNING X-BOLT HUNTER .30-06 Springfield, $899 WHAT WE LIKED: It improves upon a classic A-Bolt design, features a free-floated barrel, extremely crisp trigger and a wide variety of cartridges for whatever game you’re pursuing. WHAT WE’D CHANGE: The proprietary bases and scope rings can be tricky to find. LAUNCHED IN 2008, a little over 20 years after the A-Bolt made its public debut, the X-Bolt made an impact on the bolt-action rifle market. Some of its more noteworthy features are the 60-degree bolt throw, detachable rotary magazine, bolt unlock button, and its recoil inflex technology that helps mitigate recoil by pushing the stock down and away from the shooter’s face. The feather trigger is crisp and can be adjusted from 2 to 5 pounds. Contrary to the classic A-Bolt design, which features a hinged…

IN 1967, Thompson/Center offered the first Contender: a single-shot, hammerfired pistol that could be easily converted to a rifle, a shotgun or a muzzleloader. Although it looked like nothing else on the market at that time, shooters and hunters immediately fell in love with Thompson/Center’s new handgun. In particular, competitive silhouette pistol shooters favored the T/C’s lengthy barrel and robust grip as well as the fact that the Contender could be modified to fire a variety of cartridges. Many of those silhouette shooters were also hunters, and the Contender became one of the top options for handgun hunting. In 2013 Thompson/Center dropped the Contender from their line, but within two years the company brought back a new, sleek, modernized version of the pistol. The modern T/C G2 Contender looks very much…

DEER HUNTERS are always looking for an edge to help them harvest that buck of a lifetime. And as any successful deer hunter will acknowledge, information is the most valuable resource when hunting trophy whitetails. A“tactic” is defined as an action or strategy that is carefully planned to achieve a specific goal. However, that doesn’t mean a specific tactic will work every single time. All good hunting tactics will work at times. But used at the wrong time, a hunting tactic that runs deer off your property will mostly help your neighbors. TRAIL CAMERAS In the past, gathering information involved long hours of boots on the ground to find deer sign, locate active trails and, hopefully, spot a trophy buck or two. Having to work for a living limits most hunters’ scouting sessions…
