I have used Alpen optics for over 15 years now. I first started using Alpen optics because they were affordable. But after years of use and experience with other optics I understand Alpen quality is as good or better than anything on the market, even as good as optics costing 3 times as much.
I guide backcountry dall sheep and bear hunters here in Alaska so I need my optics to be clear, lightweight, durable and functional. Because most of my hunts are backcountry backpack style, I have to be very weight conscious. Therefore I have found the model 267 Pro-Series binoculars along with the model 735 18-36 x 60 spotting scope to be a great combination for this style of hunting. I also have found the Kodiak model 2045 3-9x40 to be a dependable scope to top my trusty hunting rifle. One other thing I have found about Alpen which I need to mention: they keep their word when it comes to the warranty of their optics.
Here are some facts about me:
- I am passionate about God, family, country, and the outdoors. I try to keep the priority in that order.
- I am a husband to my beautiful and amazing wife Shaunna for 17 years.
- I am a father to 5 boys and 1 girl ranging in age from 14 – 2 years old.
- I have hunted the wide open spaces of the Western United States since I was a boy and have been guiding in Alaska for 10 years.
- I have had 100% success guiding dall sheep hunters.
- I train all year long to be physically prepared for my backcountry adventures.
