"We're talking about one heck of an expert there my friend," said show manager Bob Davis.

Debuting in 2009 on the Outdoor Channel, Bone Collector hit the air with a mission to document the culture of the hunter, the brotherhood of sportsmen and effort to show "the warts and all" in their adventures across the globe.

NRA Pistol Manager meets with NRANews in Fairfax, Virginia headquarters

Fairfax, Virginia - Do you ever watch NRANews?

Maybe you only listen to them on SiriusXM Satellite Radio?

The only real difference between the two are the bumpers. So what's that?

Bumpers are the commercials that play between interviews. If you listen to the show on SiriusXM then you hear regular radio commercials. But if you watch Cam & Company on then you get the bumpers. Personally, I'm a bumpers guy. That's because the bumpers feature my people.

Frederick, Maryland - There were plenty of winners in NRA/Mason Dixon Big Buck Contest at Frederick Fair Grounds this January. Best in Show Sheds, Junior and more. But what caught my attention was the Female Best in Show. That was none other then Raquel Harrington of Maryland.

"It was my first hunt. Not of the season but of my life," Raquel said with a smile. "Yea, I'm a little bit spoiled."

An avid pistol target shooters, Raquel finally plunged into the hunting pond after some prodding by her Father and Uncle. In fact, it was her Uncle who served as wingman during this 2011 excursion on the family's Montgomery County Farm. Nothing like putting your money where your mouth is.

"It's kind of a funny story," Raquel explained. "It all started with a nap."


Earlier this month, I told you that I was going to try out my new set of Earinc/Insta-Mold custom fit ears. Since then I've used them twice and the difference is amazing. So I went back through my notes and put together at two part series on the man who made it possible ... Ken Dennis.

Frederick, Maryland - Three years ago, Ken Dennis was looking for a new set of ears. Not the ones he was born with – of course – but the pair one employs to protect their hearing when working heavy equipment or shooting firearms. That's when he found Earinc/Insta-Mold. Calling the company for more information, they invited him out to Colorado to learn about the system first hand.
