On Braai day I provided this gentleman with a large Guinea Fowl to braai for his family. I didn’t have a range finder with me as I was just out testing a load. While waiting for the barrel to cool down we struck up a conversation, when I noticed the bird. I asked him if he had meat for the day and if he’d like the guinea fowl if I could get it. His face lit up with a huge smile. My estimated range was around 480m, I dailed in 2.7mills, held a 0.2mill wind call and sent one. Initially I thought I had missed, in my mind I recall seeing the bird twitch... but it is still walking normally. I stay on him for about 10seconds before he started wobbling and then tipped over. I have never seen a bird to that. 140g Hybrid target went straight through him, entry and exit wound was the same size. This guy could not believe how far the shot was, and he was so happy once I told him it had gone down. Looking forward to 2019 hunting and the hunting trips we have booked. - - - - - #boltaction #vortex #vortexnation #pewpewlife #65creedmoor #smithoptics #guns #gunsofinstagram #pewpewpew #firearms #rifle #tactical #gunsdaily #sickguns #weapons #merica #gunporn #gunchannels #gunfanatics #gun #concealedcarry #gunlife #tacticaltraining #sniper #longrangeshooting #longrangehunting #precisionrifle #boltaction #precisionrifleseries #tacticalgear #hunt
How could someone be in both the most remote and vast country imaginable, but also stuck inside a tiny computer screen? Thanks to Skype of course! September’s Hunt Year Round Episode just got recorded and will be going up in due time. We talked to @ryanm_82 literally as he sat overlooking some amazing mule deer country in NW South Dakota. Stay tuned! - - - - #vortexnationpodcast #vortexoptics #vortexnation #southdakota #huntyearround #hyr #hunting #outdoors #adventure #explore #deer #muledeer #whitetail #bucks #bigbucks #fallishere #fall #freedom #bigsky #bigcountry #country #dakotas

First elk hunting trip was a blast. Eating soup but learned a lot and will definitely be going back! @zackaroofa_supertramp #elkhunting #tagsoup #bcha #vortexnation #publicland #idahoelk
What a view this morning, I could watch them get upside down all day! Nothing like watching them roll in flipping!
Never ceases to amaze me how they know how to return to the same places year after year, things change so much I don’t know whether they are a week ahead of time or if they are back to how they used to be!? Either way we are pleased to seem them return and are enjoying watching their numbers grow, they are settling in nicely and as tempting as it to get after them we’d rather see them continue to grow and become relaxed in their new home for the winter!

Another hunting season in the books. No complaints as always.
Had a great time talking with the guys at the @vortexnationpodcast a few weeks back. Give the show a listen for great 2A and hunting content and a few laughs along the way... #Repost @vortexnationpodcast with @get_repost ・・・ The crew sits down with Josh Froelich (@josh_froelich ), Open Division competitive shooter and 2018 IPSC Shotgun World Champion, to talk open division shooting, why he runs so many red dots on his guns (Yes – more than one on each gun!) and the overall experience competing in the IPSC Shotgun World Championships in France. We learned even more about his reasoning for switching from fighting MMA for years to transitioning into the 3 Gun arena and also how his new eating habits have helped take his shooting game to the next level. Josh also explained the awkward high-school-prom-like tradition of World IPSC Shotgun shooters trading jerseys at the big match! - - As always - let us know if there are any topics you'd like covered on the Vortex Nation podcast by asking us on any one of our social media platforms and using #VortexNationPodcast . - - - - #VortexNationPodcast #VortexNation #Vortex #Podcast #3Gun #IPSC #Competition #PewPew #Optics #shotgun #worldchampion #guns #sickguns #competition #competitiveshooting #secondamendment #2a
Shooting the .30-06 in years in prep for the late October Deer Hunt. Best knowing it’s still zeroed. Shot a group of three @100 spot on. Attempted @200 interrupted by non stop swirly gusting wind. #zeroed #tightgroups #vortexnation #vortexoptics #hunt_az #silvertip
I often don’t complain about Arizona weather because I can shoot year round. But damn, its almost October and it’s still 100°F. - Please 8 lbs-6 oz newborn infant Baby Jesus cool off Arizona so I can break out my new @511tactical jacket. - 📸: @redstitchtargets in Colorado - #nosnowdays #ipsc #uspsa #3gun #3gnaz #3gunnation #ladiesof3gun #worldoftroy #vortexnation #vortex3gun #lucasoiloutdoors #WPT2 #teamtuffshooters #darksideshooting #glock #glock17 #girlsandguns #womenwhoshoot #withwinninginmind #thepewpewlife #qlmf #shredderlife #shootbrasseatgrass #arizona #hot #rickybobby #talledeganights
In mid-August, Dan Vastyan @TransientOutdoorsman set out for northern British Columbia to film a mountain goat hunt with @FinlayRiverOutfitters. On the fourth day of the hunt, he connected with this billy, which should score high enough to qualify for Boone and Crockett All Time. - - Perched high on a cliff just above tree-line, the goat bedded down as soon as they spotted it. The guide’s rangefinder, which did not compensate for angle, read 240 yards. Dan’s Fury binoculars read 150 yards. The shot angle was the steepest that Dan had ever taken on a big game animal. Two well-placed shots from Dan’s 300 WSM, topped with a Razor HD-LH, tipped the goat off the cliff and into the trees below. A short hike to the base of the cliff revealed that the goat was much larger than any of the hunting party had anticipated. Dan is extremely grateful for the opportunity to harvest any mountain goat, let alone one of this caliber. Profuse thanks go to his guide, @kote74 , and hunting partner, @carrick.luke who snapped this photo. - - Because Dan carried about 25 pounds of video gear on the hunt, cutting weight in other areas was extremely important. He took a 50mm Razor HD spotting scope instead of a larger model, and found himself at no disadvantage compared to using a larger spotter. Unfortunately, they could only use spotting scopes for about half the trip, because the area was blanketed in thick wildfire smoke much of the time. Dan was also able to take a beautiful wolf on this incredible trip. Follow @TransientOutdoorsman to see the complete video and other photos from the trip. - - - #vortexoptics #vortexnation #billy #wolf #hunting #outdoors #alaska
In some countries, firearms are heavily restricted to sporting use only. In Ep. 19, Josh talks about being at the IPSC world championships in France and talking with some of the international competitors. One guy, even when simply dry firing in his basement, always has to have his shooting jersey on when he has his gun in order to be legal. Crazy stuff! - - - - #vortexnationpodcast #vortexnation #vortexoptics #pewpewpew #freedom #2a #secondamendment #usa #godblesstheusa #shooting #shootingsports #ipsc #shotgun #worldchamp #3gun #competition #competitiveshooting #gunlaws #guns #rifle

Grouse...giving bowhunters hope since the beginning of time. It’s hard to pass up one of these guys, especially when they are this big and you are down to your last protein bar.
Early morning “grind”. 50 lbs of DIY venison brats DONE and sealed and put in the freezer. I can’t say enough good things about @avidarmor and this work horse of their A100 vacuum sealer! These things truly are game changers when it comes to self processing your wild game! - - - - #bratwurst #brats #venison #wildgame #whatgetsyououtdoors #itsinmynature #iamsportsman #meat #meateater #hunting #themeats #diy #foodie #food #sausage #bowhunting #vortexnation

I stalked into 55yds to get a closer 👀 look at this Axis Deer herd... But there was not one mature 🦌 Buck in it. Since my freezer is still kind of full of Ground Axis Venison, I decided to put the bow down and pick up my @vortexoptics tripod and binoculars and recorded 📱them with my @phoneskope instead. Because “Sometimes I just like to watch .”😍😜 • over and over again. 😂• 🤓📲 • #bowhunting #axisdeer #phoneskope #vortexoptics #vortexnation @phoneskope @vortexoptics

Had an absolute blast hunting and hanging out with a great group of guys this past weekend. Learned a lot hunting the hills of SE Minnesota and even got to help pack out a great buck shot by @hayden_krimmer ! Had a few pretty cool hunts, and now back to hunting around home in northern MN for a few weeks.
What are you working on today??? Some Monday night Dryfire with my @atlasgunworks Titan SE Pro. Sitting nicely in my @webertactical Holster.

There’s some sort of “peaceful” feeling when I’m sitting in the forest ; 20ft up a tree 🌲. My Everyday worries and problems just washes away while Mother Nature rejuvenates me once again. Whether I Harvest an animal or Not... I don’t care. Because It’s more than just bowhunting to me; it’s my lifestyle. 📸: @lint_hikes#Repost @lint_hikes with @get_repost ・・・ Maui is a small island, and there isn’t much public land available to hunt. You gotta KNOW someone to gain access to wild areas, and these spots are carefully guarded (justifiably so). When my friend @maedaoutdoors invited me to go hang in a tree all day and see if we could spot some deer/pigs, you better believe I said yes. • • • Check out his page if you’re into getting your dinner from the land, and not just the grocery store. He makes some really cool videos and is a wealth of knowledge regarding the outdoors, not to mention one of the best archers I’ve ever met.
