    Marsupial vs Kuiu bino harness?

    I’m planning to replace an ancient badlands binocular harness and have narrowed my choices to the Marsupial enclosed and the Kuiu Pro bino harness. I will be using this for a set of Leica Noctivid 10x42 glasses, and plan to attach a rangefinder pouch and lanyard as well as a pouch to the bottom...

    Tikka T3X Lite Roughtech vs Savage 110 UL

    My 13 year-old son is going elk hunting with me for the first time this year, and I'm thinking that he might prefer shooting a .308 to shooting my lightweight 300 WM. I also wouldn't mind adding a .308 bolt gun to my collection. I'm debating between picking up a Tikka T3X Lite Roughtech or...

    Another year that I can't even get to mt account despite logging in early. One would think that CPW could figure out how to deal with increased traffic when they release leftover tags...

    Swarovski Z5 vs Nightforce SHV

    I am wrapping up my Tikka T3X 300 Win Mag build (already have a Manners EH stock, and am having the barrel threaded for a brake), and am now trying to decide on a scope. I am down to two options that are very different from one another, and would love to get input from those of you that have...

    Scope/DNZ rings for Tikka T3x 300 Win Mag

    I 'm building a Tikka T3x in 300 Win Mag, and am trying to select a scope and rings for the setup. I'm leaning towards a Vortex Razor HD LH 3-15x42 in a DNZ Game Reaper Mount. Does anyone know if I should use a Low or Medium mount with this setup? The 42mm objective seems to be right on the...

    Aftermarket stock for Tikka T3x

    I have a new Tikka T3x Lite 300 Win Mag inbound and I'm having a very difficult time finding a high quality (B&C doesn't qualify) aftermarket lightweight hunting stock for it that doesn't require modification for the ejection port. It seems like most manufacturers are sticking to the original...

    Stock recommendations for Tikka T3x in 300 win Mag

    I’m in the process of building a Tikka T3x in 300 win Mag with a Hardy CF barrel, and am trying to select a good stock for the build. I’m planning to use the rifle for hunting and general long range shooting, so want to keep the weight somewhat in check. I’m looking at McMillan and Manners, and...

    Between an upcoming trip to Belize and just wanting to treat myself to better optics for hunting I have decided that it is time to upgrade from my trusty 10x42 Vortex Viper HDs. I'm looking at a wide variety of optics ranging from Leica Trinovids (~$900) to Swarovski SLC (~$1,550) , and finally...

    Vortex 15-45X65 or 11-33X50

    I do quite a bit of high elevation archery backpack elk hunting, and have had a Vortex Viper HD 15-45x65 for the past few years. While I have liked the scope, I have found myself leaving it behind on my tougher trips due to weight constraints. At the end of last season I sent my scope in for...

    Hill People Gear Kit Bag for elk hunting

    When I'm hunting Elk and I get into animals I will usually drop my pack (a Kifaru DT3) asap to call, stalk, and hopefully get a shot off. The result of this is that if I have a long stalk I might find myself far away from my food, water, and other gear. I'm thinking of adding a HPG kit bag...
