    Proud Dad!!

    I understand your envy, my Dad passed when I was young. I had to learn a lot on my own and hunted almost exclusively solo for 30 years. I am so very lucky to have my Boy as my hunting partner! He has taken many Turkeys, 4 Blacktail bucks, many varmmits and loves to catch fish. He also took...

    Proud Dad!!

    Thanks to all for the positive praise, I had my Boy read this post and comments and he simply looked at me and said "thanks Pa, I love you." That for me is priceless!! Also worth the pack out. We rough taped the buck at the Taxidermist yesterday and he has 39 inches of mass and rough scored...

    Real Hunters?

    My Dad used to say "I see a lot of people fishing but very few fisherman". I suppose that could be true for hunters as well. I met a group of archers years ago shooting archery tournaments they were called the Montana Bowzmen. They shot traditional bows and wore furs and deer skins around the...

    Problem with my rangefinder. Could use some help or suggestions

    I love my Leica 1000R! It has proven itself as a stand alone rangefinder with angle comp from 10 to 600 yards. Easily ranges to 1000 plus even in harsh conditions. My favorite archery rangefinder by far! I also pack this as a backup to my G7BR2 rifle season because it has been so reliable...

    Testing the Mark 5

    Man I would love to fondle one in person, I have been looking at that scope(and the Kahles) for my new 300 PRC but it currently wears an NXS 5.5-22x50 so Its really a want and not a need. How is the reticle at 5 power? It looks a tad thin in the pics, also is the illumination center dot only...

    Need some advice....

    All great advise above for sure. I think it could simply be body position or bipod preload. Could be both. I would repeat the test again and focus on dry firing that should show the reticle moving toward the impact shift. I have no experience with Atlas bipods but I run Harris S series and...

    Problem with my rangefinder. Could use some help or suggestions

    First off yes smoke will limit your ranging for sure, I live and hunt in Northern Ca I know this all to well. I have a few Leica rangefinders including the 1600B and most have been very reliable. I love my 1000R for bowhunting and have had if for years, also have an older LRF box 1200 that...

    Looking for comments on Leupold Impact-29 reticle

    So that reticle in SFP is only accurate at 3 magnification levels; minimum, middle and maximum. That will take some math on your part. I have that reticle and have had some great success both hunting and targets, targets out to 1550 yards! I have also had good luck ranging with that reticle...
