How I Mount My Binoculars on a Tripod

I’m a late-comer to mounting my binoculars on a tripod, and it didn’t take long to convince me that it’s a great way to glass. It wasn’t until I took the time to try this technique that I understood the hype. The stability of the binos is massively enhanced when […]

While both fixed-blade and replaceable-blade knives have their advantages and disadvantages, there are several reasons why […]

My Tripod Setup Guide

Use of Rests in the Field for Shooting (bipod/pack/tree/tripod)

Field shooting while hunting poses numerous challenges to new and experienced hunters alike. The biggest challenge will be the hunter themselves: “buck fever,” stress, nerves, pressure, whatever you want to call it. Seeing the animal of a lifetime within shooting range raises the adrenaline, unlike anything else. Taking the shot […]
