This Week on The Revolution with Jim and Trav: Early Season Elk and Deer
Don’t wait for the rut, early season elk and deer hunts offer hunters some serious advantages in locating and tagging bulls, cows and big bucks. So, this week on The Revolution with Jim and Trav, the boys are going to the pros for warm weather hunting tactics. Joining them will be Roger Raglin of “Roger Raglin Outdoors”, Dean Capuano from “Swarovski Optik Quests” and Mrs. Bunny. The Revolution is presented by Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network and MyOutdoorTV!
Western Hunting Optics with Dean Capuano: Is Bigger Always Better?
The idea of hunting “smarter not harder” isn’t a new concept, and that wisdom is especially helpful for physically demanding western hunts. Let your eyes be your legs! Dean Capuano, host of “Swarovski Optik Quests” on Outdoor Channel, says having good optics can help hunters maximize their time and energy. A good spotting scope, he says, enables a hunter to glass and spot animals that are miles away, determine their size, and from there decide if they want to pursue that animal - all without leaving their glassing location. Chasing down every animal you see is fine, however, you lose a lot of time and run yourself ragged hiking the backcountry when your eyes can do the leg work for you. Spotting scopes are ideal for long range, lengthy glassing sessions. Dean says that Swarovski’s BTX Eyepiece makes glassing even easier by allowing hunters to use both eyes, instead of one. It’s like having binoculars on your spotting scope. He’ll highlight the advantages to this modular setup.
