Minox Riflescope Open Box Blowout Sale

Cameraland NY

Uncompromising Value – The MINOX ZA3 and ZA5 Riflescopes

Deciding which Riflescopes to own can be daunting. Perhaps the single-most important hunting gear you’ll ever purchase, there are dozens of brands from which to choose, each with seemingly endless choices of models at widely varying price points, and each claiming the “best” this or the “most” that.

At MINOX, they’ve simplified the process while distinguishing MINOX Riflescopes from the rest by creating Riflescopes with the features hunters want most. Like special glass from SCHOTT – the legendary German glass pioneer, fully multi-coated lens elements, precise windage and elevation adjustments, up to 5 times magnification zoom ranges, and argon-purged water and fog-proof design – all at surprisingly affordable price points. Plus, MINOX backs each Riflescope with a comprehensive Full Coverage Lifetime Warranty and the heritage of one of Germany’s premier sport optics companies. For the uncompromising shooter, MINOX Riflescopes stand distinctly alone in providing uncompromising value.

We just reorganized our show sample/demo and open box inventory of Minox Riflescopes and have some fantastic values. These scopes are in as new condition (never been mounted) and come complete as a new one would.

The lineup of fully-featured, high performance MINOX Riflescopes is designed to meet the practical demands of any hunt, from the low magnification needs of woodland hunters to the higher power requirements of the open plains and high mountains.

Cow fights Black Bear

I just received this email today. It is quite an interesting story with great pictures about a bear trying to attack a cow. The cow’s really take it to the black bear in this battle:

Interesting photos from a ranch in the Kettle Valley , BC area where every year they have to deal with some pretty weird stuff.
This year a bear had been bothering the herd and I guess enough was enough. Read on…
A couple of evenings ago, Wayne went out to check the cows and saw a very strange sight and was able to photograph the event.
A black bear approached our cow herd which turned out to be a very big mistake on his part.
The blonde and white Simmental cow we know as I-12 went right for him. She is a very good cow, a very attentive mother and about
12 years old. She’s in her prime and knows that bears are bad news.


She tried her best to mash him into the ground. 
There are a couple of photos where the bear is biting I-12’s leg and clawing her face but she is not giving up. Her stiff tail shows
how agitated she is. Wayne said all the cows were bawling, the bear was squealing, the calves were running around with their
tails in the air.



A younger cow, R-55, an Angus-Cross cow, age 7, is helping her out as best she can. It is an incredible photo to see two cows at
once trying to crush the bear.
I looked up the calving records of both cows who are so aggressive in these photos and they are both good, calm cows around us
and have given us no troubles whatsoever. I’ll have to add in my notes that they have a very distinct dislike of bears.

We’ll be watching I-12 over the next few days to see if she needs treatment for infection. I don’t know how willingly she’ll come
to the corrals for treatment, but she might not have a choice.


Finally, the bear decided to vacate the area. We thought he’d be dead for sure, but there was no sign of him the next day. 
We’ll have to keep an eye out for eagles in the trees or flocks of ravens flying up. We’re sure he’s got some
broken ribs out of the deal at the very least. Wayne couldn’t believe his eyes when he witnessed this ruckus.
This is another once-in-a-lifetime photography event to add to all the others he managed to document this
summer. It is amazing. Whoever said Cows were stupid are so Wrong….they have a heart and a mind too!

Bear Attack Season

It seems like this time of year always brings a barrage of bear attacks. Since the year 2000 there have been 2 deaths and 38 injuries from grizzly bears in British Columbia alone. There have been 2 deaths from bear attacks in BC since the year 2000. In the past week of this year there have already been a number of incidents.

A black bear attacked and killed an elder in the Xaxli’p First Nation whose remains were found last week near Lillooet, B.C. Bernice Evelyn Adolph was reported missing, police used dogs to find her remains on Thursday near her remote property. Here is a quote from the BC Coroners Service:

"After reviewing the autopsy results, evidence from the scene, and expertise and information provided by conservation officers, the B.C. Coroners Service was able to confirm a bear attack as the cause of her death," spokesman Mark Coleman said in a release on Tuesday. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2011/07/05/bc-woman-bear-autopsy.html

This incident happened on July 4th in Oweekeno BC, Canada. The survivor John Johnson was picking berries when a grizzly protecting her 2 cubs attacked the man. John walked 1.5km’s to his friends house where he was helped to the hospital. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2011/07/06/bc-grizzly-conservation-officers.html http://www.theprovince.com/technology/just+been+mauled+grizzly/5055950/story.html

On July 6th Scott Smith was jogging on a trail in North Vancouver up Mount Seymour. Scott, while on his regular run turned around and saw a bear running after him. Scott ran as fast as he could but could not out run it. Luckily there were dogs being walked by a dog walker and they scared off the bear. Conservation Officers were informed and the bear was shot as it was to acclimated and aggressive to humans. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2011/07/06/bc-north-vancouver-bears.html

The year before I harvested my trophy grizzly bear in Bella Coola, British Columbia there was a man named Brent Case who was attacked in the same area. A bear was destroyed after the attack but they were unsure if it was the same one. There is a possibility that I harvested the bear that attacked him a year later. Here is the story http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2008/05/16/bc-bear-mauls-man.html

It seems that bear encounters are definately on the rise as we increase our habitat while decrease theirs. The other problem in BC is that many people are against hunting and not enough bears are being hunted so they lose their fear of humans. It is unfortunate that they end up attacking people and then are killed by Officers. If more bears were hunted there would be less of a chance of being attacked as their fear of humans would be re-instilled. The following is a video clip showing an example of bears living in our urban areas: http://youtu.be/fmihiIdzgxY

Of course the little things sometimes solve the biggest issues.
* Make sure your lens is clean (and not with the bottom of your shirt) by always having a lens cloth or a lens pen with you.
* Never use Windex or any other soap based cleaning products on your lenses. Use a good quality lens cleaning fluid. The best way to use lens cleaning fluid is to spray it onto the lens cloth and then wipe the lens clean. Never spray it directly onto the lens.
* Information is your friend, so if you want to know more get a book or DVD to gain more insight.
* It can’t hurt to keep a flashlight in your camera bag (we carry LowePro, Promaster & Tamrac bags. It’s always nice to see what you’re doing. All photos are not taken in well lit areas (Candids at backyard events at night, Fireworks, Sunset pictures, etc).
