New virus has infected more than 71,000 people globally

A viral outbreak that began in China has infected more than 71,000 people globally. The World Health Organization has named the illness COVID-19, referring to its origin late last year and the coronavirus that causes it.


Why Every American Should Be Proud of Presidents’ Day

In general, most people are aware that it’s a day set aside to honor the Americans who have served as our presidents throughout our nation’s history. But for many Americans, this holiday represents little more than an opportunity to relax at home or get out of town for an extended weekend.

Yet Presidents’ Day also celebrates a remarkable fact of our nation’s history that every American should be proud of: for 244 years, power has been transferred peacefully from one United States President to the next 44 times. This is not a power line determined by birth or military power, but by the people.

The desert locusts in this arid patch of northern Somalia look less ominous than the billion-member swarms infesting East Africa, but the hopping young locusts are the next wave in the outbreak that threatens more than 10 million people across the region with a severe hunger crisis.

Bivystick-Turn your phone into the best backcountry safety device

By: The Bivyteam 7/4/2018

Have you ever been turned around and not had cell service? In today’s world unfortunately many do not know how to use a topo map and a compass and even if you do many times you do not have it with you when you find yourself turned around or lost. If this happens and you don’t have cell service you may be in trouble. That is what the Bivy is all about – giving you that piece of mind that you can reach the outside world without a SAT Phone. PREPPER DAVES

I love the feeling of watching the LTE bars drop away as I pull into a canyon or get further away from a paved road. It is that feeling of letting go. Knowing that no text message will stop your train of thought, that you have no need to obsessively check your phone for updates, notifications or messages. It is that feeling of being able to be completely focused on what you’re doing.  This is the joy of getting off the grid. We all need it. Some more than others. It is important to our sanity.

Sportsman’s Warehouse carries firearms and shooting supplies for every purpose

We have a local Sportsman’s Warehouse and in my opinion they are better than any other national sporting goods chain and definitely better than Dick’s. The following excerpts are from the Sportsman’s Warehouse website; check them out to see more. PREPPER DAVES

“Sportsman’s Warehouse carries firearms and shooting supplies for every purpose, available online or in-store. Whether you’re into target shooting, hunting, reloading, or EDC (Every Day Carry) and self-defense, we have what you’re looking for. From muzzleloaders to MSR’s, and everything in between, we have thousands of guns to choose from.

Don’t forget to stock up on necessities like ammo and cleaning kits at our everyday low prices!”

Winchester Model 94 .30-30

PREPPER DAVES 10/19/2019

When you think of lever guns you think of the Winchester Model 94 .30-30. The Winchester Model 94 .30-30 is the gun that shot that Big Buck grandpa always told you about. The buck that was tucked in brush so thick he could barely get it out and back home that day.

THE BUCK OF A LIFETIME: A HUNTING STORY

By: Jacki Billings (GUNS.COM) 10/18/19

Have you ever been out hunting and that big buck gets the drop on you; you dare not make a move for fear that he will bolt and now you can’t do anything but freeze and watch  what he does in the hopes that you will be able to get that shot? Nick’s story follows that same path when on his last hunt he sees the biggest buck he had ever seen. (PREPPER DAVES)

I was getting ready to move down to Florida and I knew it was going to be one of my last hunting seasons in Pennsylvania. I was living in State College, Pennsylvania at the time. I had graduated from Penn State and just stuck around. One of my very good friends from my hometown of Scranton worked for the Forestry Department in Pennsylvania as a forester. He had the inside scoop on all the good hunting spots. He couldn’t go with me on opening day but he told me about this one spot.

The Hunt for a First Hunting Rifle

Author: Jon Little (CABELAS)

“I’d lived in Alaska 17 years before I ventured out on a moose hunt, and that was a one-day outing with a buddy who packed a .338 “Alaskan Special”, while I carried only binoculars.

My opinion is that the weapon should fit the target species, sure, but more importantly, they should match the size, weight, skill and temperament of the person pulling the trigger.

I sat, listened, watched, learned and made it my goal to bag my own moose by the following season. That was September 2004, and by the spring of 2005, I launched my quest the only way I know how. I annoyed people with questions. I peppered just about every hunter I met – most of my friends and neighbors – about firearms, bullets, ballistics, moose behavior and so on.
