Some Neat Stuff

FIrst, for those of us who like to take a LOT of equipment and gear, the ultimate gear bag. Recently used one and it kept all my duffles and sleeping bag etc. nice and clean and dry. Check out:

www.bigfootbag.com

Next is something that I just got and it is slick. Called the IC-UC Quick Sight, this is a hunting tool for guides and guys who hunt with clutzy partners who cannot spot game when it is being pointed out for them. This little device works so slick, we all need one when we are hunting with a partner. So simple it is scary. Just hold it out at arm's length, put the critter in your pair of circles and tell your buddy to look through the right side circle. He WILL be able to see what your are seeing through your circle. Ultimate test, worked for me and my wife (we do not see eye to eye on anything related to hunting and shooting, so this is a hell of a test!).
Check out:

NOw for another slick hunting tool, although maybe not for long rangers so much. I recently hunted in Africa using a shooting tripod called a Bog Pod and it is a fine rifle rest. Took a Stoney Point setup over but it went apart in the bouncing and abuse from the hunting truck. The Bog Pod stood up to a lot of abuse and enabled me to make some nice kills. Really like the handle on the BogPod and the index marks on the legs, plus the head swivels 360 degrees.

Am using Bushnell's new 4200 Tactical 6-24x50mm and it is a very good scope - BUT it needs more elevation latittude. Some of my friends have bought the scope and they are also encountering a need for a sloped base or shimming to get the zeros lower in the elevation turret. Really like the crisp and accurate turrets, up to 20x the optics are excellent, fall off a bit at the top power but many scopes have this affliction. IF you have a straight taper barrel on your rifle you will need fairly high rings, the 50mm objective is a bit bulky. Overall the scope is NOT big and bulky, it is a very nice size for a hunting scope. Really like this scope, and it is priced very reasonably. Buy one now and you get a free jacket!

WWW.bushnell.com (I think)

Ian M,

I enjoyed to reading. Thanks.
I'm interested in the bushnell riflescope. How many MOAs does it have all together? How many MOAs in one full turn of the turret? I hope I did not ask too many questions.

I've seen it around for about 530 which is the price it is at all the hunting stops. I would try to get maybe on ebay or in some ads for like 500 around that price.

ericstokes250,

Thanks for your response. I have been searching and I believe you're pretty much right on the money. Best I've seen so far is right at $536.00.
Thanks again!

thanks for the review on the bi-pod I have just started to look for a good one.
The stoney junk I had wasn't worth a hoot.

Rh

I might add I have been using the safari sticks not the bi-pod with the yoke
