Welcome to the Origin Story of Hunting Trigger : Real Expertise for True Shooters
Trust Your Equipment, Focus on the Shot
We’ve all been there, scrolling through endless product listings, searching for that perfect piece of gear. It’s frustrating, right? You look for advice, but often, you stumble upon articles written by people who’ve never actually held a firearm. That’s not what you need.
Here at Hunting Trigger, we’re on a mission to change that experience. We want to empower you to make the best decisions when it’s time to choose your gear.
But we’re not here to convince you to buy something and send you on your way. We are hunters, competition shooters, gunsmiths, outdoor enthusiasts, former and active-duty military personnel, and law enforcement professionals. We bring decades of real-world experience with firearms, and we’re here to provide you with the knowledge you need to make the right choice for your needs.
Hunting Trigger was born from frustration. A group of us was searching for solid advice about which firearms products to buy, and we were disappointed with what we found. It became clear that the top search results on Google needed to be authored by fellow hunters or shooters. Instead, they were dominated by content created by marketing experts, not people who genuinely share our passion for firearms and shooting sports.
Frankly, that irked us.
When it comes to firearms and accessories, wrong information isn’t just a waste of money; it can also jeopardize lives. We believe that’s unacceptable. So, we committed to collaborating exclusively with real-world experts who possess genuine, relevant experience.
We set out to build a platform for these experts to share their knowledge with the firearms community.
The Hunting Trigger Approach
Today, Hunting Trigger has been joined by several former soldiers, instructors, and competitors, all driven by a deep desire to pass on their experiences to the next generation of shooters.
How Our Writers Operate
- Researching: Just like you, we’re active on forums and follow real shooters, experts, and gun enthusiasts on YouTube. The key difference is that we do this professionally, and we can sometimes write off ammo purchases on our taxes (for work-related reasons, we promise).
- Real-World Training: Many of our experts are instructors, range officers, or gun store owners. We’re continuously honing our skills at the range, and we’re always learning from other subject matter experts through training classes. This ensures that we can evaluate guns and gear effectively and pass on the best possible advice to our readers.
- Hands-On Testing: We thrive on getting out into the field and rigorously testing products ourselves. Much of the information out there consists of people regurgitating product listings or promoting their favorite retailers. We’re determined to be different. We provide genuine, first-hand accounts of product performance based on actual field use. Unlike many other sites, we actually use the products we recommend. And we believe that makes all the difference.
Our Editorial and Review Process
- We consistently seek out experts to join the Hunting Trigger team.
- Behind our expert writers, we have a dedicated team of technicians, editors, artists, photographers, and marketers who work tirelessly to keep our site running and provide you with the best experience.
- We don’t clutter our site with third-party ads to ensure you have a seamless browsing experience.
- To support our operations, we earn a small commission when you purchase through our affiliate links. We never accept money or products in exchange for positive reviews. We want you to join our email list, use our affiliate links, and support our writers on Patreon, but we won’t push it because we despise websites that do. If you find our information helpful, great! If not, that’s okay too.
Our ‘No AI’ Policy
The content on our site is meticulously created, reviewed, & published by a team of expert writers and editors who consciously choose not to use AI. Our team’s expertise ensures that every buying guide, how-to article, and product review is original and tailored to your needs.
What Sets Hunting Trigger Apart
- We only bring on board subject matter experts with real-world experience, along with industry-leading editors.
- We don’t just talk the talk; we walk the walk. We use the products we recommend by hunting, competing, and training with them to assess what works and what doesn’t.
- Our reviews are unbiased, grounded in our personal experiences with the products, and not influenced by manufacturer advertising copy.
- We employ a data-driven and results-based approach to all our testing, striving to be as scientific as possible and providing multiple points of comparison to help you choose the product that suits your specific needs.
Our Promise to You
We pledge always to offer you our genuine opinions on everything we discuss here. We collaborate with the best writers to provide you with the most accurate information, whether it’s about selecting the best rifles, crafting your survival foods, or everything in between.
But remember, we need your help!
We’re a close-knit group, and we were hoping you could engage with us in the comment sections, asking us questions about what you want to know. We’re passionate about our work and eager to share our knowledge, but we can’t do it without you.
