New Gear

3 posts in this topic

What is it about buying new gear that makes you wonder if you will be satisfied with it? Here is my story...

Earlier this year, I started to purchase a Deer Rifle as I don't mind shooting borrowed gear, but everyone likes their own suff. I chose a Tikka T3 stainless on black 30-06. I recieved many pros and cons from friends and family.(family likes, friends criticized) Then it was down to putting the scope on it and received many suggestions from everyone on the planet. It was so overwhelming that I didn't even believe the magazine reviews anymore. I decided to call Nick at Optics4hunting.com and WOW!! I spent a few good hours and talked about options and differences among all of the manufacturers. We finally decided to go with the Bushnell 3200 Elite 3-9x40 with Firefly reticle. I can honestly say that I haven't been more sure about the purchse. He gave me his word and from what I have seen here it is honest. Well I fired the rifle yesterday and it was the best feeling to see my friends look at the target after 3 shots and say WOAH!! That is SWEET!! The 3 shots were 1 inch high center of target and about the size of a quarter apart. A big thanks to Nick.

Now if deer have a plus sign on them I'll be set.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
