    Leupold BX-5 vs Vortex Razor HD Binoculars?

    I recently sent a pair of gold rings in for service , They were replaced with 12x50 santiams. I have only had them out twice turkey hunting so far but I can say Im impressed with the clarity and light gathering ability thus far. Also , I cant say enough good things about Leupolds customer service!

    Looking at a new antelope rifle...

    She has shot a fair amount of game , but has never been out west. She usually shoots an 18 inch 308 which I had to download a fair amount because of the short tube. While a fine close range gun , the long range ballistics are weak. Hence the 243.

    Looking at a new antelope rifle...

    Well.....after searching all over northern Michigan for a Howa 25/06 , I struck out. Legacy said 4-6 months most likely so Krista has a new 243. I found a 280 ai that really really wants to spend some time with me too.

    Introductions from a future regular.

    I've been at it since 84 , guided 60 some hunters at 95% success. The few tags that go unfilled are usually due to poor marksmanship , unability to hike , or time constraints. Yes I have seen guys with a once in a lifetime tag in their pocket hunt the weekend and go back to work for monday...
