I’m happy to announce the addition of a new writer this month—Josh Honeycutt. He’s a highly accomplished hunter, and his first article for the digital magazine is about how competitive shooting can improve your skills in the field. Honeycutt gathered input from two of our favorite pro shooters and hunters, Doug Koenig and Bruce Piatt, and outlined eight reasons why competitive shooting doesn’t just give people an edge on the range. Check it out “How Competitive Shooting Makes You a Better Hunter” here.
