MODERN & TRADITIONAL MUZZLELOADING
Don’t Skimp on Scope Mounts
By Richard Mann
“Just any old rings and bases” can be the wrong choice and the weak link that fails at the most inopportune time.
There you stand, rifle in one hand and a riflescope in the other. Since duct tape and baling twine are not options, how shall you bring them together? Sifting through the myriad riflescope rings and bases on the market seems more trouble than it’s worth. A friend who runs a local gun shop told me 90 percent of his customers don’t care which rings or bases he uses to mount their riflescopes. They should. There are a lot of different mounting systems, but from a practical standpoint, only two distinct types: fixed and quick-detachable. The first decision you need to make is which bests suits your needs. Because I write about rifles and riflescopes for a living, I am constantly swapping scopes for testing. The easier I can make that process, the better I like it. For that reason, I use a lot of quick-detachable systems.

Traditions Nitro Fire:
By Layne Simpson
The new Traditions NitroFire is a revolutionary development in muzzleloader technology. This muzzleloader uses Federal’s new FireStick system which is touted as being incredibly simple, easy, and safe to use when compared to the traditional way of loading a muzzleloader.
How does it work?
Well, the muzzleloader does not have a normal breechplug. Instead, the user simply inserts the FireStick, which is basically a container with a pre-measured powder charge, in the breech. The bullet is loaded through the muzzle as normal and seated against the FireStick with a ram rod. Finally, the user must simply insert a regular 209 primer in the base of the FireStick before firing.
This whole process is designed to be much easier, faster, and safer than measuring and loading a charge of loose powder or even pre-formed pellets. The FireStick contains an optimized load of powder designed specifically for use with the Federal BOR bullet, so the NitroFire is capable of outstanding accuracy. It also requires far fewer tools and accessories than other muzzleloaders.
Finally, it’s also very easy to unload and clean.
For all those reasons, the Traditions NitroFire is billed as the ideal choice for hunters who are just learning how to use a muzzleloader.
Note: the Traditions NitroFire is a great muzzleloader, but some states do not allow hunters to use it during dedicated muzzleloader seasons. Verify that it’s legal to use in your state before purchasing.
Losing The Right To Hunt ......
by Toby bridges
We're closer to losing all opportunities to hunt than many of you may realize. There are many people ... anti-hunting organizations ... and state, federal and global agencies which are hell bent to eliminate hunting. And, yes, some of those "agencies" include a number of so-called "Game & Fish" departments. How they are accomplishing a well funded effort to put an end to hunting just may surprise you. This article shares a look at a new 2022 website which aims to counter the efforts and lies of that anti-hunting movement.
Note from MountainGnome Online: We have an old saying in the hunting, farming, and ranching community about these over populated predators..."SSS"!! Continued...
10 Deer Hunting Myths Debunked
A talking head on outdoor TV puffs his chest and declares, “Man, the full moon is the worst time to hunt!” Sounds pretty good, and you buy it. Your daddy told you never to overhunt a spot, and you never doubt Pops. Stands to reason that if another hunter tromps too close to your treestand, your day is ruined, right?
Uh, no, to all three of the above. Let’s change your thinking on some misguided beliefs about big deer and how to hunt them.
5.) The more acres you hunt, the better your chances.
Dieter Herbert is a 27-year-old New York City carpenter who bowhunts the suburbs near his home on Long Island. Most of the tracts that Dieter hunts are 20 acres tops — big enough to hide a big deer, and small enough for one man to scout and hunt effectively.
In November 2019 a huge buck with a split G-4 popped up on one of his trail cameras. Dieter scouted and tracked the beast for a year, and last Halloween he shot him. The giant net-scored 197 4/8, the new state-record typical bow kill.
It’s human nature to think that the bigger the farm or woods you hunt, the better your chances of killing big deer. No, just the opposite in many cases.
When you hunt a public area or a private farm or wood of 200 to 2,000 acres, you’ll have to share the land with a few to an army of other hunters. People will roam and drive all over the place and hang treestands. To a mature buck, pressure changes everything, and it takes only a few days of that fracas for him to deep-dive for cover and go nocturnal.
Think about those small and likely unhunted woodlots and thickets near home that you drive past every day. If you can get sole permission to hunt 10 to 40 acres in just the right spot, you’ll be able to scout it and hunt it the way you want to, like Dieter Herbert does in the New York suburbs. I doubt you’ll shoot the next state record, but putting an arrow into a 130- to 150-inch buck is very doable.

Recipe: old fashioned homemade chicken & dumplings
By Linda Griffith
This recipe was handed down from my husband's family. It's a family favorite and you can see from the directions that it is kind of hard to put into a recipe. It's a lot of work but well worth it. There is never a dumpling left when this is made. I have to call my children and let them know that I made them so they can come over and get theirs. If only they would bring their own bowls.....

Google faces fresh lawsuit from three US states over invasive location tracking practices
by River Hart
The tech giant is accused of "manipulating" users to perform systematic surveillance.
Washington state and the District of Columbia, as well as Texas and Indiana, are suing Google for deliberately misleading users in order to collect their location data. The lawsuit alleges that Google has manipulated its customers by allowing them to believe that they had successfully disabled location tracking.
Three general attorneys, including Washington DC's Karl A. Racine, have stated that Google's misrepresentations are not only a clear violation of user privacy, but that they make it almost impossible for anyone to keep their location data confidential.
