Close Shots


The 2019 convention in Reno will once again host Wayne Van Zwoll and his always popular shooting seminars. This time Wayne walks you through the process to get up close for that all important shot.

Deer, elk, pronghorn – whatever the game, close shots are best. Here’s how to get close, and shoot better when you can’t belly behind a bipod. Also: rifles, optics and loads Dr. van Zwoll favors for thickets and open places, and why trends haven’t changed his mind. His firearms background, fine photography and 45 years afield have made him one of hunting’s most widely published journalists. You’ll get facts, insights and techniques to enhance your hunt!

SCI Counters Antis’ Lies About Federal Commission


Safari Club International isn’t about to sit by idly as anti-hunters attack a federal conservation council and its members.

Anti-hunters never let facts get in the way of an emotionally-based false argument, as is evidenced in their attacks in the media on tomorrow’s meeting of the International Wildlife Conservation Council in Atlanta, GA.

“The shameful criticisms of the IWCC from the anti-hunting community are not surprising but are characteristically unfounded and disappointing,” said SCI President Paul Babaz. “Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke has assembled an advisory group of individuals with scientific expertise and hands-on experience with the conservation strategies that are succeeding in Africa and elsewhere around the world.

“Not only is the hunting carried out by the members of the IWCC and their constituencies sustainable, but it has been recognized by scientific authorities around the world, including by the IUCN and CITES, as having a significant role in the conservation of many species. It is time for the anti-hunters to grow-up and recognize that hunting has historically played and will continue to play an important part in international wildlife management and conservation,” Babaz stated.

See You In Reno!


Honest folks, I really enjoyed our convention just past! This was in spite of myself because, as a small exhibitor as well as an attendee, going into an unfamiliar venue to set up shop ranges from daunting to downright terrifying (depending on the moment). Continue reading See You In Reno!
