Wayne LaPierre: The United Nation's treacherous assault on our freedom
The Daily Caller
The tyrants and dictators at the United Nations will stop at nothing to register, ban and eventually, confiscate firearms owned by law-abiding Americans like you and me.

WTVR-TV
Opening day of bow season for deer hunters saw three hunters go to the hospital, after falling from their tree stands. Injuries that could be avoided, experts said, if those hunters used a safety harness.

The ultimate October playbook
American Hunter
Opening day is a big deal. As a young duck hunter my entire life revolved around that date. But it is not a widely anticipated event among bowhunters. We tend to have one-track minds we see the rut and only the rut. And since opening day — usually Oct. 1 — is a month before we can expect to see rutting activity, we tend to forget the season even has a starting point. In certain situations, overlooking October can be a big mistake. But you can also make mistakes in October if you don't plan and hunt it correctly.
