- My preferred weapon(s):
.257 Wby mag.
.338 Lapua mag. (for those times when my shoulder needs tenderizing)
- What weapon(s) do you hunt with?:
- My preferred optic(s):
Leopold (After hunting and guiding hunters extensively on horseback, which in my experience is the toughest test a scope can get, only Leopold, Swarovski, and high end Burris scopes proved that they were head and shoulders above the competition in holding a zero)
As for binos and spotting scopes Swarovski has served me well. Steiner predator is my favorite choice for those more budget conscious early years of my hunting career.
- Gear I cannot live without:
- My horses!!! LOL, Badlands packs, Irish setter boots, My sheepherder tent, .257 Wby., Leica rangefinder, and on and on and on. Oh and how can I forget my coleman heater for those cold november days in a SK deer blind!
- My best hunting tip:
- Hunt all day, every day. Many of my best trophies and most memorable experiences have happened during mid-day or on 'poor' hunting days.
- My other interests:
- Training horses, Taxidermy, Dreaming of Africa!!!
