We are the largest and most popular animal, hunting and archery information sites on the Internet. We are also the most popular after Cabela’s. Finally, we get more page views because there is so much more to see.
We started in 1997 as an all-volunteer public service to hunting. However, when our financial backers died or moved to Florida we had to take in advertising to pay expenses. No one has ever taken a penny in salary.
All our information and pictures are free and downloadable. Please scroll down to learn more.

Shooting Advice
Courtesy of Split Rail Outfitters

I suggest you sight your rifle in to hit 2 to 2.5 inches high at 100 yards; that will put most rifles dead on at 200 yards and 6 to 8 inches low at 300 yards. This allows you to hold right on the animal at all reasonable ranges and not worry about holding over or under. When you get it sighted in, get away from the bench and shoot it from hunting positions. Then do three things – practice, practice and practice.
