This channel is more reloading focused than hunting, but this recent episode of Johnny's Reloading Bench includes a little something for everyone based on recent posts in a couple of threads. This show includes reloading; deer hunting: and a bit on his most recent hobby, raising pigs and chickens; wrapping up with home sausage and venison snack stick production using products from The Bearded Butchers (*another good channel).

Johnny (real name Shannon) is in his own words, "An idiot and his reloading press... hoping not to blow my face off...". He is quite funny, and he does some good load work ups and component testing for quite a few different cartridges. I found his series on reloading for 6.5 Creedmoor very informative, and in fact lead me to select the Speer Gold Dot 140gr .264"/6.5mm bullet as a hunting bullet for my X-Bolt. It is a laser beam with that bullet over Reloader17, with a muzzle velocity of 2789fps. His ballistic gel tests are what convinced me. I enjoyed his series on .243 Win also, but wish he'd tested more bullets and powder combinations. Over the past two years he's gotten into raising chickens and now pigs. Both of which make an appearance in this video and add some comic relief. Most of his chicken & pig content is on a separate youtube channel of his. I watched his videos as he fixed up some outbuildings to turn into his coops, and getting his first chickens. Sounds like several of you might enjoy those.

This is only the 2nd catch and cook type video Johnny has done, his first one was just a while back, in which he goes squirrel hunting and then makes squirrel tacos.


Feel free to share any other good channels or episodes of hunting, shooting or even wild game cookery and sausage making content. I'd ask that you refrain from adding any crap about balloons, Communists, conspiracy theories, antigovernment sentiment, and politics of any form or fashion. Greatly appreciated.

Here's a good tracking on snow hunt from the mountains of New Hampshire. Beautiful country. Could easily imagine it being a hunt in our Cobequid Mtns, with all the scrubby beech and the hobblebush. It is a fairly long video, but a great example of how tracking on snow is done for someone new to the game and wanting a primer. For the action scenes LoL he gets on a track at 6:40; gets eyes on the deer at 27:20 with shots fired not long after; and catches up to the wounded buck @ 36:55. Buddy did a great job reading the tracks and planning his approach. Gotta love when you can buttonhook an expert buttonhooker! After watching this hunt, and one of the others above, I also have a better understanding of this most recent ammo shortage. Holy crap these boys put lead in the air!
