No way, I can't believe I won! I was thinking how I really need to upgrade from the $60 BSA scope I have been using for the last 6 years. I'll send you an email right away. Thanks so much Robby and Vortex!
Everything just shipped today Josh and Gentry. I emailed you the tracking info.
BTW, Brian Bitter, our Huntin' Fool Winner, did claim his membership. He's one of our followers who for some unknown reason can't post on the comments but he said he was really glad to win the Huntin' Fool membership as he's wanted one for years.
Thanks to Vortex and Huntin' Fool for the support. I've worked with both these companies for years and have been very happy with their products and customer service.
Hey Robby, the scope arrived yesterday! I'm really excited to get it mounted up and sighted in. It seems really solid and great quality from an initial inspection. It will be a great upgrade for me and I can't overstate how thankful I am for you doing this giveaway!
Thanks for the heads up Josh. Looking forward to hearing about your experiences. Don't forget the Vortex LRBC on their website is a great tool for predicting where those hash marks will put your bullet. I found it very accurate once I knew my bullet velocity. All the best!
I received the book in the mail. I can tell already I am going to have a hard time putting it down. Reading about the first BIG deer you took and how that put you on the path you are on was as exciting as reading your blog posts that I enjoy following. I have already realized what sets you apart from the average hunter, and by average hunter I mean everyone else. HA HA Thank you for being an exemplary mule deer hunter and sharing your incredible knowledge with us. The knowledge gleaned from reading your stories and advice won't be wasted. Thanks again!!
Hi Gentry, thank you and that's one of the best compliments I've ever received. Hope you enjoy the book and remember that there are a lot of other hunters out there that you can learn from their books like Dwight Schuh's Open Country Mule Deer, David' Long's Public Land Mule Deer, and several of Mike Eastman's books and Kirt Darner's Giant Bucks and others. Thanks for posting.
