Cazenovia, Wisconsin. After a morning of hunting turkeys on the Duren family farm, Steven Rinella talks with guests Paul Neess and Mark Boardman from Vortex Optics, along with Doug Duren and Janis Putelis. Subjects discussed include: the difference between red dot sights and laser sights; how far is "too far" when taking a shot; Charlie Brown optics wisdom; patterning your shotgun; the widely misunderstood differences between 1inch and 30mm rifle scope tubes; parallax and MOA (minute of angle) in layman's terms; what to look for when shopping for binoculars; the quarter-mile buck hunter; "running" optics; and the best rifle scope to buy if you're a hunter who predominately hunts whitetails in the midwest, occasionally hunts big game out west, and hopes to one day hunt Dall sheep. // If you're enjoying the podcast, do us a favor and share it with a friend!
