Our old friend Mark Boardman of Vortex Optics jumps on to talk backcountry optics. Specifically, we discuss the pros and cons of mounting your high powered binos on a tripod. Is it necessary to still carry a spotting scope if you have a good pair of high powered binos? Mark gives us his take and breaks down his optics lineup he takes on a backcountry hunt.
Then we discuss the alarming downward trend in the # of duck hunters currently chasing ducks and geese in North America. Delta Waterfowl’s Paul Wait drops by to break down the numbers and what they mean from a conservation standpoint. Bottom line is that we’ve lost over 1 million duck hunters since 1975. Shocking really when you consider we have longer seasons, higher bag limits and more ducks than at any time in recent history.
We round out the broadcast by checking in with Accubow creator and CEO Matt Pell. The Accubow is the gold standard when it comes to tools designed to help your archery technique and training.
We’ll see you Saturday morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio!
