from TIME Magazine
Americans are afraid of this economy. As a result, they're getting locked and loaded. According to the SportsOneSource, a research firm that tracks the sporting-goods industry, firearms sales in large retail outlets are up 39 percent this year.

Numerous Reasons to Hunt Texas Exotics
from The Monitor
The excitement of spot-and-stalk in the rocky hill country for Axis deer or the wide open grassland of the South Texas coastal prairie for Nilgai antelope makes Al Senteno, Jr. one of those Texas hunters who are wild about exotics. If the beautiful trophy mounts don't do it for you, Senteno said the table fare procured from harvesting Texas exotic game just might. More
