    Looking For A New Pack? Definitely Consider The AKEK CLIMAX !!

    Sign me up. SW CO and willing to recruit some other locals for reviews. On tap for me this year, weighted pack workouts, as much hunting as I can manage in CO, and fingers crossed for at least one other state for elk.

    SWFA 3-9 unicorn quick look

    Replaced a mildot version with a new mil quad today. Didn't notice the eye piece needing to be overly extended. Three shots to sight in, only because I didn't see the first shot immediately, measured 0.6 mil left, 1.5 mil low with scope, corrected on dials and sent one dead center.

    The SWFA 5-20 is on sale for like $750 right now. I'm partial to the reticle, so I chose it over the NF SHV F1 for about the same price.

    Can I add a stud to the power ring on the SWFA 3x9??

    Someone recently posted that an M4 thread will fit it. I need to try it; $35 a pop will add up for me on throw levers.

    SWFA HD scopes 40% off

    I really like the 5-20, that is a heck of a discount! personally I wouldn't bother with the illumination, it works great right at first and last light, but the battery dies quickly and I'm not sure how it would do in the cold. To me the glass is much better than the 3-9 and 6xs, you pay for it...

    Opportunity for first Elk Hunt in Montana

    There have been some good prices on Meopta binoculars in the classifieds lately, like $500 for 10x42s. I can't imagine upgrading them for my style of hunting. No idea of the Leupold binocular quality/durability, the Meoptas are good to go. Range finder and know what range that bullet hits...
