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.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
