Cat And The Hat

Cat And The Hat

Crosman friend Terry Tate of east Texas checked in to report of this bobcat he recently shot on his ranch.  Terry has been featured on Benjamin Hunting before and while his hat gets a lot attention, it’s his shooting that is proving the Benjamin Marauder .25 as an exciting tool for varmint control and small [...]


Playing Through

Playing Through

Hal Hunnicutt of North Carolina lives on a golf course where he pitches in with pest control: From the den, across the backyard, to the left of the telephone pole, over the fairway, to the edge of the woods: 135 yards. Lowest mil-dot on the CenterPoint scope and the Marauder .25 put it right in [...]


Rogue The Right Tool For Hogs

Rogue The Right Tool For Hogs

Following their recent trip to Texas for predators, prostaffers Ed Schultz and Chip Hunnicutt traveled to Pennsylvania in pursuit of wild hogs.  ”Hogs have a well-earned reputation for wrecking farmlands, gamelands and being a general nuisance,” said Hunnicutt.  ”While some folks are trying to convince you that small caliber airguns are okay to take hogs, [...]


Texas Predator Hunt

Texas Predator Hunt

The mission was simple:  footage of the new Benjamin® Rogue™ .357 taking a coyote. The plan: hook up with Dan Goodenow of Jim Shockey’s The Professionals in west Texas and outfitter Desert Safaris for a predator hunt. The result:  the promise of the Rogue as a versatile, high-performance air rifle  was proven, as it was [...]


Easter Woodchucks

Easter Woodchucks

Airguns have long been a great introduction to the shooting sports and the current lineup from Benjamin are helping to develop tomorrow’s hunters. Over the weekend, 12-year old Cal Upham ventured into the outdoors with a Marauder Pistol looking for woodchucks. “I’ve been shooting since I was seven,” said Cal. “My Dad first took me [...]


Spring Is Best Time For Chucks

Spring Is Best Time For Chucks

Prostaff report from Steve Upham I love to hunt woodchucks in April/May, especially with a strong breeze, when  their keen senses are somewhat hindered. After a long winter locked down in their dens, these pesky critters take to the field edges in search for the new fresh spring grass.  This big adult female had a [...]


Early Bird Gets The Pellet

Early Bird Gets The Pellet

With colder weather moving in over the weekend, prostaffer Steve Upham took advantage of limited food sources to do a little crow hunting with the Benjamin Marauder .25 featuring a CenterPoint Power Class 3-9×40 optic.   “A single shot at thirty yards was all it took,” said Upham.  Crows have fantastic eyesight and typically post a [...]


Beaver Fever

Beaver Fever

Terry Tate despises beavers.  Can’t stand ‘em. They wreak havoc on the stock tanks around his Texas ranch by boring holes into dams and “can destroy a large lake in a few years.” So when he won a Benjamin Marauder .25 caliber at the L.A.S.S.O. big bore shoot in Oklahoma last year, the writing was [...]


Marauder Pistol Sinks Snake

Marauder Pistol Sinks Snake

Thanks to Jim Hirsch of Texas for sending in this great tale of a recent adventure in his neighborhood. Living near a small lake in urban gated community in North Central Texas it’s not unusual to see many different types of critters when venturing near the water. Last fall I began to notice frequent visits [...]


Coyote With The Marauder .25

Coyote With The Marauder .25

The phrase “all hat and no cattle” does not apply to Barry Stewart of Texas.  When we asked him how long it would take him to get a coyote with an airgun, his response was to the point: “how soon can you get me the gun?” Barry shot this coyote last Tuesday on his ranch [...]


Upham Takes Fox With Marauder

Upham Takes Fox With Marauder

Prostaffer Steve Upham was enjoying an uneventful Sunday morning when his son called him over to the window: skirting the yard was a red fox. His son grabbed a video camera and Steve began squeaking at the fox, getting it within ten yards of the house. Never one to let a hunting opportunity go to [...]

No Hiding On Silos

No Hiding On Silos

Prostaffer Ed Schultz makes a difficult shot look easy with the Benjamin® Marauder PCP in .22 caliber. Notice how the rifle barely makes a sound as it takes out the pigeon on the right, perched atop a silo.  No PCP on the market can match the performance and value of the Marauder.


Squirrel At 45 Yards

Steve Upham whacks a gray squirrel with the Benjamin Trail XL 1100 powered by the Nitro Piston.


PCP Or Nitro Piston? We Like Both

PCP Or Nitro Piston? We Like Both

When it comes to choosing an air rifle for hunting, Benjamin has something for everyone.  Our Nitro Piston break barrels lead the industry in power, precision and low noise.  Then there are the pre-charged pneumatic, PCP for short, options that bring a whole new level of power and convenience.  Multi-shot magazines, wicked quiet and deadly [...]


Upham On Shot Placement

Upham On Shot Placement

Once you choose a caliber and choose a Benjamin, it’s time to take it outside.  Prostaffer Steve Upham explains the finer points of shot placement on critters you find in the woods so you’ll know right where to place your pellet.  The line of Benjamin Nitro Piston and PCP air guns are so accurate, putting [...]


Nitro Piston Wallops Woodchuck

Nitro Piston Wallops Woodchuck

Less than 24 hours after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery, prostaffer Steve Upham is back in the field shooting the Benjamin Trail XL 1100.  Although he could not stalk game on foot, the Nitro Piston-powered break barrel made quick work of this woodchuck that stepped out smack dab in the middle of the trail.


Not All Small Game Is Small

Not All Small Game Is Small

Benjamin prostaffer Steve Upham heads south to help alleviate a raccoon problem.  Shooting the Benjamin Marauder PCP rifle in .22 caliber, he comes across one of the biggest raccoons he’s ever seen, perched about 80 feet up a tree. The safety on a Marauder is within the trigger guard, just ahead of the trigger. What [...]


Around The Farm

Around The Farm

Benjamin Prostaffers Mark DeBoard and Chip Hunnicutt had an opportunity to hunt pigeons with John Klosenski, Shooting Sports Manager for Kittery Trading Post in Kittery, Maine.  John has hunted with airguns for nearly thirty years and is an avid Benjamin and Crosman fan.  ”Benjamin has the total package with the Marauder rifle: accuracy, power and [...]


Bring Enough Gun

Bring Enough Gun

Chipmunks present a unique challenge due to their size and quick movements.  Steve Upham, just a day out of knee surgery and unable to stalk the woods, was fortunate to find this little critter taking a break along the path.  That the Benjamin Trail XL 1100 made quick work was not surprising, but knowing how [...]
