Ask a buddy about their bucket-list shotgun and chances are you’ll hear a litany of British or Italian masterpieces, or just as likely Grandaddy’s old L.C. Smith radiant with memories that somehow slipped out of grasp through the crevices of time.

Sauer Introduces SL5 Waterfowl Shotguns

San Antonio, Texas (October 19, 2022) – J.P. Sauer & Sohn, Germany’s oldest manufacturer of hunting firearms, is pleased to introduce the new line of SL5 Waterfowl shotguns. 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 12, 2022 – A newly released State of the Birds report for the United States reveals a tale of two trends, one hopeful, one dire. Long-term trends of waterfowl show strong increases where investments in wetland conservation have improved conditions for birds and people.

As of September 2022, Muller Chokes added RETAY 12, RETAY 20, and MOBIL 20 to the H2O Waterfowl/Hunting choke tube family. All three new styles are now available for purchase online or in-store.

Whether a beginner or an advanced shooting enthusiast, be prepared to shoot over 200 clay targets a day as Fausti wingshooting instructors teach you ways to improve your shooting ability and then get in the field with the dogs and live birds on the last day.

APEX Ammunition, makers of premium, ultra-high-density Tungsten Super Shot (TSS) shotshells, is pleased to introduce its new limited-edition, Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat Waterfowl Blend. 

WASHINGTON – The Department of the Interior today announced that more than $31 million in grants has been approved by the Migratory Bird Conservation Commission, which will conserve or restore 116,305 acres of wetland and associated upland habitats for waterfowl, shorebirds and other birds in 18 states.

APEX Ammunition’s Waterfowl TSS/S3 Steel Blend shotshell line has been named Editor’s Choice by Petersen’s Hunting magazine in their Gear Annual which can be found on newsstands now. This award comes as APEX is gearing up for the 2022-2023 waterfowl season with deadly new loads designed for quick, clean kills.

If you want your dogs to be sharp on Opening Day, you’ll have to run them in the summer. But hot temperatures and high humidity can make it difficult. A gun dog’s drive may override his ability to know he’s overheating, so it’s up to every owner and handler to keep their dogs safe.  

Boss & Co, London’s oldest gunmaker, has revealed one of the most complex and beautiful guns ever created, featuring entirely new innovations to the gunmaking industry. For the first time ever, a rising third bite action has been paired with a side-lever over-and-under format – the most challenging possible configuration.
