You don't have to lose your hunting edge during the winter months. Instead of parking it in front of the TV watching hunting shows or spending time on the range to try to maintain skills, you could be out hunting coyotes.

I took a much needed deep breath. I had been squealing hard on a diaphragm turkey call for five minutes or more. Indeed, that is not an effective turkey calling method. My ridiculous sounding calls were, in fact, to attract a coyote within shotgun range.
As I began to call once again, I caught movement far up the valley. A loping animal paused long enough for me to get a good look through my binoculars. "A coyote is on its way," I whispered to my wife, Dian, who clung to her...

As Congress and the White House debate the gun controls they want to try to put into place, a negative side effect would be the impact on conservation funding and public land access. These programs are paid for by Pittman-Robertson funds derived from excise taxes placed upon firearms and ammunition.
In 2012 Pittman-Robertson funds generated over $370 million for state game and fish agencies to use to increase access to landlocked public lands, create and fund new shooting ranges,...
