3. SO THE BACKSTRAPS ARE GONE–NOW WHAT?

Often underutilized and doomed to the grinder, if used at all, the shank of your buck may soon become your new favorite cut.  Host of TV show MeatEater on the Sportsman Channel, master of wild cuisine and in general cool dude, Steven Rinella, details his killer recipe for venison Osso Bucco.

4. CALLING IN THE WILD (COYOTE CALLING TIP)

“As we dive into January the coyote breeding season is upon us. Distress sounds begin to take back seat to coyote vocalizations. To increase your success, take time to learn the coyotes language. If you want to kill large numbers of coyotes this time of year, you must be proficient with vocalizations. You can use your e-caller or your favorite mouth-blown call. Here’s one tip on how vocalizations can help you have more success.

Many of us scout for big game – you should be doing the same for coyotes. The night before you plan to hunt, go out and do some interrogation howls in the areas you plan to call. Document where you find coyotes and what they are. For example, was it an adult male, a young female, a breeding pair? When you hit that stand in the morning, you’ll have a better idea of what sounds will trip that dogs trigger and get him or her to come in. You’ll make each stand knowing first, that coyotes are there, and second, who they are. This gives you a significant amount of confidence, patience to wait longer if necessary, and a very good idea what your sound sequence should consist of.”

FIVE STAR FRIDAY – VIPER HD BINOCULARS

Posted on Updated on

I looked forward to trying out my new Vortex Viper binos on the Antelope Hunt this year. The binos worked perfectly and were crystal clear. They helped me spot over 40 bucks and was able to field judge them much better than I ever could before with my old pair of binos. I let my buddy look through them after I kept out spotting him throughout the hunt. After he looked through them, all he wanted to do was borrow my binos each time we glassed an animal. The HD Vipers proved to be just what we needed to spot and tag this great goat. I’m sold on them. Thanks Vortex!

FIVE STAR FRIDAY – VIPER HS LR

Posted on Updated on

“I just wanted to take the opportunity to tell you how pleased I am with your products. Earlier this summer, I bought the Viper HS LR 4-16×44 to put on top of a Browning Long Range Hunter in .300 WSM. The first weekend that I had it out, the rifle was knocked off a table onto concrete! Needless to say, I wasn’t super happy at the ‘character’ that my new riflescope had just acquired. Once I calmed down, I gave both the rifle and scope a thorough inspection and thought ‘Well, at least Vortex has that VIP warranty.’ To my surprise, nothing was shifted or broken and point of aim was still point of impact.

Now, fast forward to October. I was able to take that rig (and its new found ‘character’) to southern Colorado a couple of weeks ago and knocked down my first bull elk. At 12,000 feet above sea level and 578 yards, the Viper performed flawlessly. Using the exposed elevation turret took all of the guesswork out of where I needed to hold and the glass was more than clear enough, even though the sun wasn’t over the ridge line yet.

Thanks for making a product that performs as expected, despite a hunters best efforts to tear it up! You’ve earned a Vortex fan for life.”

Kindest regards,

Jason

MY VORTEX STORY

Posted on

“Thanks for manufacturing top notch optics I shot this bull at 850yds using my Vortex Viper HSLR 6-24×50. On top of my kimber 300 win mag! Amazing clarity and deadly accurate I also used your ballistic software to dial it in and it was spot on! The second picture shows the location I shot from as well as my brother Travis C. on his way up to help me pack him out! Brutal pack out but I had an awesome hunting partner!” – Eric C.
