Equipment Utilized:

  • when whitetail hunting in New York State I like the lightweight and clarity of the Apex 8X42 for all round hunting use.
  • when turkey hunting and IBO competition; I love the rainier 8X32 - when I need to see the spurs or rings! I find the 8X32s out perform most other companies larger heavier optics.
  • when I am chasing elk, moose or caribou through remote vast lands; I never go without my Alpen 15-45X60 spotting scope. The light weight never causes me to leave behind. I also use this scope, with its convenient tripod, while sighting in my muzzle loader at the range - makes sighting must quicker and effective.
