“I’d give you 50/50 odds, but that’s okay. This will be an easy hunt—low pressure, great scenery, and a few days out of the office. Take the gear, guns, and new knives, and see what you can get.” An experienced hunter will tell you it’s a tall order to round up three individuals relatively new to hunting and expect success. Even more so when the quarry is the decidedly skittish and notoriously wily Merriam turkey of the inland Northwest. Our content team consisting of a crew more accustomed to shooting through the lens or casting a fly than staring down the bead of a shotgun would make for ..read more

The Danny Peretti Story: The Man Behind The Forever Warranty
The Buck Knives Journal
by Justin Barr
1y ago
A Buck knife is intended to last a lifetime. “All Buck Knives are guaranteed” can be found in Buck literature dating back to at least the 1960s. For many decades, Buck has been replacing or repairing knives they deem to be defective in material or workmanship. Now, if you’ve submitted a warranty claim in the last 25 years, it’s highly likely that Danny was repairing your knife. In 1976 Danny Peretti’s only knowledge of Buck Knives was that his neighbor worked there. This neighbor, Pat Cappiello, also happened to be friends with Danny’s older brother and another Buck Knives long-timer, Bill ..read more

The Opener: A Waterfowl Hunting
The Buck Knives Journal
by Justin Barr
1y ago
As a young hunter, my family celebrated ‘the’ duck opener in Wisconsin as one of the most prestigious holidays. It brought in friends and family from across the state—dusting off their canoes, patching their neoprene waders, and hitting the marsh for a traditional Midwestern wild duck chase. I’ll never forget the smell of decomposing vegetation as we navigated the sea of towering cattails with nothing but a compass, handheld mag light, and like the old matriarch leading her herd to water, generational intuition. Despite this lack of modern technology, we made it back to the same hole befor ..read more

A Legacy of Antelope Hunting in Eastern Montana
The Buck Knives Journal

It was October 12th, 1991; I was 12 years old, following my dad through the early morning darkness. The evening before, we’d seen a group of a dozen antelope and knew it held a shooter buck – perfect for my first antelope tag. As the sun rose, my dad spotted the herd, and we began to belly-crawl through the sagebrush in the direction of the antelope. We came to a stop at about 150 yards out, and I prepared for a shot. Just then, my dad looked over and whispered to me, “Here, use my gun.” Family photo of Mark, age 6. My dad’s rifle, a Ruger .270, was my dream rifle at the time – most likely ..read more
