Hey Roksliders, I got wind of this last week and just had to get it out to you guys. This head-to-head live optics shootout sponsored by S&S Archery will be held exclusively at the Northwest Mountain Challenge, Tamarack, Idaho shoot, June 22-24.

I so wish I could go to this just to do the head-to-head on the optics.

The cool thing about it, is not only do you get to compare glass outside where we actually hunt, people also get vote on the optics–talk about an unbiased review!

Last year over 100 people submitted their votes. S&S posted those results here:

2017 Optics Shootout Results – S&S Archery Backcountry

Some non-surprises there but also some surprises.

So if you can make the Tamarak shoot, you can participate and vote. If you can’t make it, watch for the results out later this summer on the S&S blog. I can’t imagine a better way to see for yourself how glass stacks up.

Also, the Northwest Mountain Challenge at Tamarack shoot is a great way to fine tune your real-world shooting skills. This is the only shoot Rokslide sponsors, so be sure and let them know you’re a member if you show up.

Post up here if you’ll be going of if you have any questions.

Robby Denning
Robby Denning started hunting mule deer in the late 1970’s, only missing one season in 35 years. At 25, he gave up the pursuit of all other big-game to focus on taking the best bucks possible. He began hunting the West on a DIY budget hunting an average of 30 days a year for mule deer. Robby loves the hunt as much as the kill and the entire process from research to scouting to hunting. He’s killed four bucks over 200 inches in the last 15 seasons, mostly on easily-obtained tags. He owns a public-land scouting service and runs a private-land outfitting business helping other hunters in their pursuit of deer and elk. Robby has scouted and hunted literally thousands of square miles of mule deer country and brings a wealth of knowledge about these experiences with him. To him, the weapon of choice is just a means-to-an-end and will hunt with bow, rifle, or muzzleloader – whatever it takes to create an opportunity to take a great mule deer. He is also the author of "Hunting Big Mule Deer" available on Amazon. Robby believes all of creation is from God for man to manage, respect, and through which to know its Creator
