Please read the description of the forum choices before posting in this (Long Range Hunting) forum.

Does your topic have the word "hunting" or the name of an animal? Is it about your last hunt or where you plan to hunt or which outfitter you use to hunt?

If it is really mostly about hardware it probably belongs somewhere else. Most of any topics that are incorrectly placed in this forum should be in "Bullets, Barrels and Ballistics".


PS: Three nights in a row this week I got up at 3 am to "hunt" prairie chickens at dawn with my camera with its "long" 600 mm lens. Can I put that topic in this forum?

Each spring the mating season finds the males staking out individual territories on a piece of ground called a "lek" or "booming ground". Each morning the females show up and the males do stupid things to try to attract a female. Very much like a high school dance.

Awesome pics Len. But I think you might get upset if you don't find the right forum. Sure wouldn't want any toast butter on those pics.

Len, I think they're in the right place. I've not quite seen such a fine example of tricyclic precession as the second photo though. Maybe it should be in Barrels, Ballistics and Cooking Pots!

ps: Nice shooting!

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
