Since 2012, Shotgun Life has been entertaining and educating readers online about the best in wing and clays shooting. We don’t believe in pay walls. Shotgun Life has always been free to readers, with the help of advertisers supporting our editorial mission. Unlike print, Shotgun Life has amassed an online archive of stories, since our inception, that is always available 24x7 whether you’re interested in researching a sporting shotgun, outfitter, destination or simply to become immersed in our international coverage from your PC, phone or electronic device of your choice.

Part of our free-of-charge mandate is the publication of several free e-letters:

  • Our “60 Seconds With…” series of shooting tips taps into the minds of some of the best wing and clays shooters of a generation including Anthony Matarese, Jr., Chris Batha, Don Currie, Gil & Vicki Ash, Warren Watson & Mike Wilfley and Tom Huggler among others. “60 Seconds With…” is distributed every weekday morning.
  • “Shotgun Life Gear” tells you about the best accessories for wing and clays shooting, bird dogs, shotgun maintenance and of course great clothes. Subscribe and you’ll receive it every weekday afternoon.
  • “Robert Milner’s Gundog Chronicles” features the wisdom of one of the greatest living gun dog trainers, Robert Milner. Expect it every Saturday morning.
  • “Eukanuba Dog Training and Nutrition Tips” comes out two Sundays per month. The world-class scientists and dog trainers behind Eukanuba’s™ Premium Performance line-up covers performance nutrition, exercise and recovery and optimal nutrient delivery.

Shotgun Life does not sell its subscribers lists, or make them available to advertisers. Your privacy is ensured. We look forward to having you join our community of well-informed enthusiasts.
