Last week,The House Committee on Natural Resources (Chaired by, Utah Senator, Rob Bishop--known to want Federal Lands turned over to the states) compromised with the Senior Minority Senator from Arizona, Ra'ul Grijvala, and voted to send the version to a vote in the House of Representatives.
By the time this is published, the deadline for reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), may have come and gone. Expiring September, 18, 2018, the LWCF was created on the heels of the Wilderness Act. It utilizes NO Taxpayer dollars to protect national parks, ensures access for hunting and fishing, open space purchases for playgrounds, sports fields, bike paths, hiking trails and much more—all on federal, state, local and private lands and waters.
The pace at which archery tackle is technologically changing boggles my mind. But, for me a Traditional Archer, a couple different types of bows, and the right arrow/broadhead set-up has been set-in-stone since 2005, when I was just one year past my first Traditional kill, using a 125Gr. two-blade Eclipse Broadhead (from my friend Blake's line of Broadheads), on a fine Mule Deer.
For those of you that have the largest and the smallest of our ProHunter sized Binoculars, we have two new Standard BinoBro and Prohunters availabe--Small available now, and XL available, September, 1st.
Many don't know the difference between a Porro Prism and a Roof Prism Binocular.
We're happy to announce our tenth size to fill the gap between the XS and the existing Small size. The NEW Small will fill the gap needed for smaller Roof Prisms, such as: Swarovski, CL 10 x 30, Vortex Diamondback, 10 x 28 and many other makes that are just under or about 5" in height and about 5" in width.
The New size, as of August 15, is SMALL. The OLD Small is now the Small Tall. See our online sizing chart and PDF on the landing Page.
The height of your binocular is the most important dimension needed before ordering.
It seems with the advent of the internet and the pervasive gear and Hunting Forums, hunting enthusiasts flock to, the idea of “What’s in your backpack?” has taken on a life of its own.
The topic of gear never dies. We all seem to be gear-heads. We are normally seeking a lighter, cheaper or an expensive upgrade-solution that we perceive we need.
Many of us on budgets don't spend the necessary money for a pack that can haul heavy weights, so many hunters suffer with a pack that is ill-equipped to carry heavy loads.
I know I did for years, as my mentor, my brother-in-law used old-style military pack boards for meat-hauls. We'd all suffer for hours at a time on long meat-hauls. I'm not sure his motives, other than budget, or no pack suited him, but it was if to make me tougher, or to never want to use such ill-equipped packs for meat hauling, ever again!
We're on the road for a few weeks: June, 25-July, 8.
If you need something during this time, give us a call, text, or email, this week, June,18-24.
