Wyoming elk hunt
Sys-Con Media    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
So you want to go on an adventure into the Rocky Mountains and hunt elk. Hank Huntington has done it before and has not shot an animal yet, but the shoot is only a small part of the experience. There is more to it than shooting an animal. Packing in by horseback, living in the mountains and riding through some of the most beautiful country you have ever seen is the best part of the experience. You can drive through the mountains on the interstate, but you can never appreciate the beauty of the west until you are back in the dense forests, mountain meadows and valleys. More

Deer behavior during the rut
Big Game Hunt    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Big, mature whitetails don't get that way by being dumb. A true trophy deer has figured out where to bed, when to move and when things just "don't seem right." It's as if they develop a sixth sense. There is a brief window of opportunity, however, when his defenses go down and that big buck turns his attention to other matters. To an avid deer hunter, there is no more exciting time of year - it's the whitetail rut. More

Leupold Mark 4 riflescope review
Big Game Hunt    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over the last few years the interest in higher power scopes with more durability has increased among hunters. Some hunters look to these scopes to improve visual clarity at longer ranges in order to increase the range at which they can consistently make a kill shot, while others want a more rugged scope that can take a few bumps and scrapes. For decades Leupold has developed their line of tactical Mark 4 scopes that offer both a rugged scope and optical superiority. For this review we'll be taking a look a the Mark 4 lineup of scopes along with a closer look at a Mark 4 LR/T 4.5-14x50mm Illuminated Mil-Dot scope. More
