Walkabout In The Weminuche Wilderness

Herschel Smith · 05 Aug 2018 · 34 Comments

"There are no socialists in the bush" - HPS All of my physical training only barely prepared me for the difficulty of the Weminuche Wilderness (pronounced with the "e" silent).  It's National Forest land, not National Park.  The Department of Agriculture no longer prints maps of the area, so we relied on NatGeo for the map, and it's good, but not perfect. We have a lot of ground to cover, including traveling with firearms, the modification I made to one of my guns for the trip, the actors…… [read more]

Five Top Hunting Cartridges For The 21st Century

BY Herschel Smith
14 hours, 48 minutes ago

American Hunter:

Federal’s brainchild was released at the 2018 SHOT Show, and made some serious waves among both long-range shooters and hunters who love the .22 centerfires. Designed to give supersonic flight out past 1,300 yards—the .22 Nosler will drive the high B.C. 90-grain Sierra MatchKing to 2700 fps—the .224 Valkyrie gives true long-range performance with very little recoil. I spent some time with it on the range, and could watch my own vapor trails to nearly 900 yards. But it’s not just a target gun; the 90-grain Federal Fusion load gives deer hunters who like the .22s a perfectly viable deer cartridge, nipping at the heels of the 6mm’s performance. The 60-grain Nosler Ballistic Tip load—at 3300 fps—will most certainly create the ‘red most’ varmint hunters love. A fast twist rate and high B.C. bullets are all the rage these days, and the .224 Valkyrie epitomizes that formula.

This is an odd-sounding paragraph.  It’s difficult to tell whether he thinks he is discussing the 24 Valkyrie or the .22 Nosler, or both.  That one sentence needs some serious editing work.

Anyway, the 224 Valkyrie gets more attention, as does the 6.5 Creedmoor, and he also discusses the .28 Nosler.

Announced at the 2015 SHOT Show, the .28 Nosler was the second in a series of proprietary cartridges from Nosler based on the .404 Jeffery, and designed to fit in a long-action receiver. A true magnum—even without the moniker—the .28 Nosler will better the velocities of the 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum by almost 100 fps, driving the heavy 175-grain bullets to 3140 fps. The .28 Nosler gives a shooter a blend of horsepower and tolerable recoil, which can handle nearly all North American game, and makes a good choice for longer shots at African plains game. It shoots flat, and the Nosler 175-grain AccuBond Long Range bullet is a perfect mate to the big case. If I owned a 7mm magnum—I’ve fallen under the spell of the .300 Winchester Magnum for decades—it’d be a .28 Nosler; the design maximizes the long-action receiver for the 7mm bore diameter.

Once again, I find that this entire paragraph needs serious editing work.  It’s surprising they let this one go through.  Regardless, the .28 Nosler seems like a beast of a round.

Still, I suspect it will be a very long time before any cartridge replaces the venerable 270 Win for white tail deer hunting.  It remains the most used cartridge in America for that purpose.

Coyote Attacks In Sundry Places

BY Herschel Smith
14 hours, 59 minutes ago

Dogs being attacked by Coyotes has become a routine occurrence throughout the country.  But remember, it can happen to humans as well.

The child had just gotten off her school bus and was walking toward her house, located in a wooded area, when the coyote approached her and bit her on the leg, the television station reported.

Multnomah County Animal Services spokesman Jay LeVitre said the girl was taken to a hospital and treated in case the animal was rabid, KATU reported.

Michelle Dennehy, an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman, told KATU that in general, coyote attacks are extremely rare.

“With any animal, and coyotes are no exception, we see more problems when, for example, they’re being fed and they become habituated to an area,” Denehy told the television station.

What he said is a load of crap.  Ask any Raccoon hunter in the South who’s killing the ‘Coons and destroying his hunting?  Or go out in the field to a deer stand just before dawn or walk into any field around me just after dusk and shine a flashlight around you.  Tell me who has all those eyes?

As for deer hunting, one commenter told you why there are so few of them now.

Why are there more coyote sightings ___________ (fill in the blanks.

Deer and coyotes have expanded their ranges since the White man. They love the landforms and uses we create. Had three or four setting on the golf course in Snotsdale by my office for years. Kept the rabbit population in check, Bobcats galore too.

Hunters don’t hunt them anymore also helps. We have a standing order in my hunt club that every hunter must shoot a coyote whenever they see one. If you get caught NOT doing that, your out!

(One area I had hunted Coues for years in had an estimated 97,000 deer in it in 2000. Eight years later it was down to just over 14,000. Fish and Game at their annual meeting said it was ML’s. Tags were no more than 50/year. They eat a deer a week in AZ.) … Trust them at your own risk, they appreciate the flexibility in your love of nature.

Folks, the country is going to have to deal with the notion of the hatred of guns and mankind’s dominion of nature as a moral mandate from God.  If America doesn’t come to terms with that, not only will the wicked humans in the inner city continue to prey upon other humans, but you won’t even be able to allow your own pets or children into the yard or on your porch without being closely supervised with an armed presence.  Perhaps you should ask if you can do that anyway?

As for deer hunting, it will perish as a sport if we don’t cull the Coyote population.

Man Punches Black Bear In The Nose

BY Herschel Smith
15 hours, 26 minutes ago

In Western North Carolina:

A Haywood County man says he battled a bear outside his home and he has the scrapes and bruises to prove it, WLOS reported.

Sonny Pumphrey was in his driveway Tuesday afternoon when he says a mother bear and her two cubs showed up. He says the cubs ran off but the mother bear reared up and attacked him.

“She made a charging dead run at me. That sucker was eyeball to eyeball to me,” he said.

Pumphrey says he punched the bear in the nose, but then she dropped down and bit his hip.

She kind of shook me a little bit, and I’m still … I’m hitting her steady on the top of the head just as hard as I could swing, man, for dear life,” he said. “I just continue pounding and pounding and pounding and she’s continuing trying to bite me. And like I said … she got a hold of me and then shook me a little bit, then she let go and she took a swat at me. And when she took a swat at me she knocked me about 8 feet over on the concrete.”

Sonny’s wife Betty heard the screams and rushed to his aid along with their little Yorkie, stunned at the sight of a large black bear in their driveway.

“I saw her stand up and rear her paw back and all I seen (sic) was a mouthful of teeth,” she said. “And I just knew he was going to be gone.”

This happened near Waynesville.

WAYNESVILLE – A Haywood County man says he punched a mother black bear in the nose after she came toward him at his home off Liberty Church Road.

Sonny Pumphrey, 78, was working in his driveway Tuesday afternoon when he said he looked up and found himself eye to eye with a black bear, according to a post on his Facebook page.

I’ve hiked and backpacked near this area many times.  Honestly, I don’t think I’d be working anywhere around there, even in my own driveway, without carrying a legitimate self defense weapon.

I’m glad he survived, but punching a bear in the nose is not a viable strategy.

Extended Chamber: The Real Culprit In The California Shooting

BY Herschel Smith

WTSP.com:

Authorities say Long used a .45-caliber Glock 21 handgun during the attack. The weapon was purchased legally. Investigators say it had an extended chamber to hold more rounds.

Something tells me that an extended chamber would be dangerous.

Hunting Black Bear With The Ruger AR 556 In 450 Bushmaster

BY Herschel Smith
4 days, 13 hours ago

We discussed this earlier, and a reader sends this my way.

I have been involved in shooting probably 100 bear or more in my life so I have seen what works well and what does not. You would expect that bigger is better, but I would argue against that logic. Many magnums (IE: 7mm Rem. Mag, 300 WSM, 28 Nosler, etc.) are what people show up with because of this thought. These rounds tend to penetrate through and through and then dump the rest of their remaining energy (typically a lot) into the tree or hill behind the bear. There’s a good time and place for them, but it is not hound hunting. On the other side of the coin, I have seen a bear shot with 44 Mag, 45-70 Gov. and 32 Special, to name a few. All of these do a much better job at killing these predators. Why? Because the round is so much bigger in diameter, the shock of the bullet going into the animal is much more traumatic. Also, because they are going slower, they will actually be caught within the animal, capturing 100% of the energy that the bullet left the barrel with, transferring into killing power. With this logic, I knew that the 5 rounds of Hornady 450 Bushmaster with a 250 gr bullet from the Ruger would be devastating on a black bear. If you disagree, that is okay, but personal experience has really proven this to me.

I have absolutely no doubt this round will kill any game in North America within 100-200 yards.  Beyond that I would want something with a higher BC to prevent the loss in velocity and to ensure an ethical kill.  Then again, my eyes can’t see 400 yards anyway.

But this hunter clearly likes the heavy bullet with the high exit muzzle velocity.  He also seems to like the Ruger AR 556.

Contest To See Who Can Be The Worse Gun Rights Offender

BY Herschel Smith
4 days, 13 hours ago

Is it the first circuit court of tyrants deciding for Massachusetts?

“(T)he First Circuit of the US Court of Appeals ruled that the right to self-defense is at its “zenith inside the home,” and the right is “plainly more circumscribed” outside.

“The “core right” protected by the Second Amendment is for citizens to use arms in defense of home, the court said in its decision. “Public carriage of firearms for self-defense falls outside the perimeter of this core right.”

Because after all, when a man leaves his home, he is no longer made in God’s image and not worthy of self defense or protection of his family.  Here the tyrants did it to the peasants.

In another case, the peasants did it to the other peasants (via WiscoDave).

The sweeping 30-page measure will raise the legal age to buy semi-automatic rifles to 21. To obtain such weapons, people will need to pass an enhanced background check, take a training course and wait 10 business days after a purchase.

I-1639 also will enact a storage law. Gun owners who don’t secure their firearms with devices such as a trigger lock or safe could be charged with gross misdemeanor or felony “community endangerment” crimes for allowing prohibited people (such as children) to access and display or use the weapons.

Essentially, it declares all semi-automatic guns is an “assault rifle.”  Nope.  Can’t use it for defense of home and hearth or children and wife.  Just because.  Man isn’t made in God’s image at all.  We’re all just animals to the folks in Washington.

They don’t need black-robed tyrants to lord it over them.  They strip themselves of their God-given rights voluntarily, making it even easier for the communists to load them onto trains.

Stephen Willeford: Reckoning With History

BY Herschel Smith
5 days, 14 hours ago

Texas Monthly:

On most Sunday mornings, Willeford would have been 45 minutes away, in San Antonio, at the Church of Christ he and his family had attended since his kids were young. But on November 5, 2017, he decided to stay home and rest up. He was scheduled to be on call the upcoming week at San Antonio’s University Hospital, and he knew he’d inevitably be summoned for a middle-of-the-night plumbing emergency. He had drifted to sleep sometime before 11:30 a.m. when his oldest daughter, Stephanie, came into his bedroom and woke him up. She asked if he heard gunfire.

He did hear something, but to Willeford it sounded like someone was tapping on the window. He looked outside but didn’t see anyone. He pulled on a pair of jeans and went to the living room, where the walls were less insulated. The sound was louder there. It was definitely gunfire, he realized, but he couldn’t tell where it was coming from.

He rushed into a back room and opened his steel gun safe, where he stows his collection of pistols, rifles, and shotguns. Without hesitation, he snatched one of his AR-15s. He’d put the rifle together himself, swapping out parts and upgrading here and there over the years. It was light, good for mobility, and could shoot quickly. It wasn’t as accurate as some of his other rifles but good enough to hit the bowling pins he and his friends used for targets. He loaded a handful of rounds into the magazine.

[ … ]

As he approached the old white chapel, he screamed as loud as he could, “Hey!” To this day, he’s not sure why—he knows that giving away your position is foolish, tactically—but friends inside the church later told him that when the gunman heard Willeford’s cry, he stopped shooting and headed for the front door. “It was the Holy Spirit calling the demon out of the church,” he tells people.

[ … ]

Willeford propped his AR-15 on the pickup’s hood and peered through the sight. He could see a holographic red dot on the man’s chest. He fired twice. He wasn’t sure he’d hit him, though he was later told that the man had contusions on his chest and abdomen consistent with getting shot while wearing body armor. Regardless, the gunman stopped shooting and ran for a white Ford Explorer that was idling outside the chapel, roughly twenty yards from where Willeford had positioned himself.

As the shooter rounded the front of the Explorer, Willeford noticed that the man’s vest didn’t cover the sides of his torso. Willeford fired twice more, striking the man once beneath the arm—in an unprotected spot—and once in the thigh.

[ … ]

Willeford believes that what happened that day was a battle between good and evil. He says he was terrified, but he thinks the calm he experienced was the Holy Spirit taking over. He tells people he thinks it was the Lord’s hand shielding him as the man doing evil fired over and over again in his direction. And looking back now, he feels like God had been shaping him every day of his life, carving him into the perfect tool for that day.

[ … ]

He’d even had discussions with a police officer friend, long before his encounter with the gunman, about where to aim on a moving target wearing body armor: the side, the hip, the leg. More preparation from God, he believes.

[ … ]

For most of the afternoon, he was convinced he’d be going to jail, despite repeated assurances from the officers interviewing him. He’s always told people: if you use your gun, even in self-defense, expect to spend a night in jail before it’s all sorted out. He talked to five different law enforcement agencies, but his worries were assuaged only after the district attorney for Wilson County, Audrey Louis, introduced herself and put him at ease. She told him she had friends in that church, and she gave him a hug.

[ … ]

When the owner of Sons of Liberty learned that the rifle Willeford had used on the morning of the shooting had been confiscated and had yet to be returned, he insisted on building him a new one. It’s painted a desert camouflage, with a brown Texas flag on one side and a passage from Romans 13:4 on the other: For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. (Law enforcement recently returned the rifle to him in a ceremony at the church.)

[ … ]

So in those moments, when his mind is unoccupied, here is what Willeford is fated to ponder: if he’d arrived fifteen seconds sooner, Kris Workman might still be able to walk. If he had been there a minute earlier, Workman’s mother, Julie, might not have a bullet hole in her leg. If he’d gone running when he first heard the tapping on his bedroom window, maybe he could have saved some of the children.

When these thoughts start to consume him, he’s learned to remind himself he did the best he could.

There is so much there it’s difficult to mine it all, but a few things jump out.  First of all there are the tactical lessons.  Body armor, legs, hips and head.  Remember those lessons.  I will too.

Next, while I understand the need to collect firearms for forensic analysis, that firearm was Willeford’s and law enforcement had absolutely no right to keep it that long.  Not to law enforcement: be about your business.  The property you have belongs to someone else, an individual or the taxpayers.

Then there is the issue of the fact that Willeford was certain he’d be jailed for doing the right thing.  What a sad commentary on the state of America.

Finally, he did do the best he could.  There is no reason to second guess what happened.  He did God’s bidding.  I am a Calvinist.  God ordained that Willeford would be there that specific day, that he would have access to firearms to protect the community, and that he would respond.  And God made his shots true.  He was God’s tool for righteousness that day.

No regrets, no looking back, sir.  You did great.

But for God’s sake, Stephen.  Keep loaded magazines handy.

Mid-Term Election Discussion

BY Herschel Smith
5 days, 14 hours ago

Take advantage of this as a free thread to discuss the mid-term elections.  I’ll kick it off to observe that we always knew that Trump gave us more time, an oasis in what is still a very dry desert.

Remember that approximately half of the country is still collectivist and thinks of the state as god.  Marx and Freud did their jobs well in the colleges, as did Horace Mann in the public school system.  Coupled with an anemic and powerless church who refused to teach their congregants theology and instead fed them crumbs and sweet snacks, and it makes for a country that cannot be turned.

America is divided, and it will remain so.  Even now, the lines are hardening.

Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Case Challenging California Concealed Carry Law

BY Herschel Smith
6 days, 14 hours ago

The Hill:

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a case challenging the constitutionality of California’s concealed carry laws, which give locally elected sheriffs discretion over issuing licenses for good cause.

Sacramento County residents James Rothery and Andrea Hoffman, who were denied licenses more than 10 years ago, argue the law deprives them of their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms for protection outside the home and violated the clause of the Constitution that affords everyone equal protection under the law.

The law allows each city and county the power to issue a written policy setting forth the procedures for obtaining a concealed-carry license for good cause. It also allows retired police officers to obtain concealed carry permits without having to show “good cause.”

The residents argued the Sacramento County sheriff was issuing permits to friends, donors and supporters but excluding others.

But state officials said Rothery now has a concealed carry permit thanks to a new sheriff, who changed the definition of good cause after taking office in 2010. That definition required only a stated desire to have the ability to carry a weapon for purposes of self-defense, or defense of a family, to obtain a license. Hoffman has not reapplied for a permit since being denied in 2008.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s decision to dismiss the case. The court held the Second Amendment does not protect, in any degree, the carrying of concealed firearms by members of the general public.

The decision by the Supreme Court not to hear the case keeps that ruling in place.

So the decision the SCOTUS made pertained to Mr. Rothery and that Ms. Hoffman could have ameliorated this situation with a simple re-application.  Easy, right?

Not so fast.  This doesn’t change the rest of California, nor does it ensure that their rights will be honored in perpetuity.  That would require a SCOTUS decision, and they weren’t willing to give it.  Do not entrust your rights to black-robed tyrants.  You’ll be disappointed.

As I’ve said many times before, rights come from the Almighty and thus are as immutable as He is.  The constitution is a covenant and contract (remember those classes in covenants and contracts, lawyers?).  It means only that the state (county, state or FedGov) is or is not honoring the duly constituted covenant under which we’ve all agreed to live.

Thus it means that the state has declared war on its people.  Broken covenants means being cursed by God.  It’s that simple.  You don’t break covenants without consequences.

Maryland Kills Its First Red Flag Gun Confiscation Victim

BY Herschel Smith
6 days, 14 hours ago

Via Fred Tippens, news from Maryland:

FERNDALE (WBFF) — Anne Arundel County Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred Monday morning in Ferndale.

Police spokesman Jacklyn Davis said officers responded to 103 Linwood Avenue at around 5:15 a.m. to serve an “emergency risk protective order,” also known as the red flag order.

Police say Gary J. Willis, who was the subject of the Extreme Risk Protective Order and the Emergency Petition, answered the door armed with a handgun.

When officers began to serve Willis with the order, he became irate, opened the door to the residence and grabbed the gun according to police. They say, an attempt was made by an officer to take the gun away from Willis when Willis fired the gun.

A second officer fired their service weapon, striking Willis, who was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Davis says no Anne Arundel County officers were injured in the struggle. The suspect was pronounced dead on scene.
