Vortex Viper Scope Deal

I saw this deal come through the wire today on the Vortex Viper Scope which people speak highly of:

Camera Land has a SUPER SPECIAL on the Vortex Viper 6.5-20x44mm Plex Riflescope Only $259.99

Cameraland NY
We just received a new shipment of these scopes. They stopped making this scope at the end of last year, however, they were so popular we asked Vortex to make more for us at a price that would make our clients happy. At $259.99, IMO, there is not a scope out there to compete with this value.

Effortlessly shrugging off recoil, moisture and darkness! The Viper’s status as a premium riflescope won’t be as easy to shake. Discover a riflescope with incredible performance features like premium, fully multi-coated optics with 95 percent light transmission, heavy duty Precision Force spring systems and the glass smooth Precision Glide erector system—delivering all this and more at a price that should have pulled a few more hundreds from your wallet than it did.

Cultus Lake Bear Killed

So this makes 167 bears killed because of attacks, conflicts, or threats this year in BC. 163 black bears and 4 grizzly bears. I hope anti-hunters and animal activists see that if there is no hunting, the animal population loses its fear of man and will continue to have these conflicts. Bear hunting in BC has declined and is not keeping up to the population increase of bears. People who disagree with hunting bears need to give their head a shake and realize that they live in a house that obstructs wildlife habitat and therefore causes conflict.


Sage Grouse Declining

Too bad the numbers of the sage grouse have decreased by 98%. Their mating rituals sound unique; being able to inflate their chest  sacs with 5 litres of air is incredible. Apperantley the sage grouse do not go within 2 kms of any unnatural disturbance.


Check this out if you want to know more about grouse hunting.

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.

Grizzly Accidental Deaths

It is too bad that grizzly bears, especially sows get killed by trains.  I know a lot of animals meet their demise on the train tracks. Hopefully some type of solution can be figured out to reduce the number of grizzly bear and other animal deaths by train accidents. Perhaps some type of scent sprayed on the tracks would deter animals from coming near. I know dogs hate sour apple smell. Another idea would be to run electrical wire along each side of the tracks through high animal population areas although it would be costly.





This 5 year old grizzly sow was killed by a car in Banff.  Unfortunately it was already the second one this year:


Binocular Trade in Sale

I just got wind of this deal where you can trade in an old pair of functional binoculars and get up to $200 off a new set of Leica Binoculars. It is a great way to get into some premium optics and recycle your old binoculars while getting more than you would if you sold them:

Leica Sports Optics is offering a consumer trade in program on NEW full-sized Ultravid HD binocular.

You are able to trade any functional binocular for instant savings toward the purchase of any new 32, 42, or 50 mm Ultravid HD binocular – does not apply to Leica compact binoculars, Ultravid BL or BR models, or Silverline products.

Trade in can be any make/model of binocular in working condition – clear image with functional focus mechanism. As always, if you do not have a unit to trade in we can offer a suitable trade in (We are still offering the Timberline 8×42’s @ $59.99 that will still allow you to benefit from this exciting promotion.

You can trade the binocular in to us and receive and instant savings of an additional $100 off the purchase price of any 32 mm Ultravid HD ( 8×32 , 10×32 ) or $200 off any 42 mm or 50 mm Ultravid HD model ( 7×42 , 8×42 , 10×42 , 8×50 , 10×50 , 12×50 ) that we would normally offer to you. That’s correct, whatever we would normally offer to you is being sweetened by Leica by $100.00 – $200.00 depending on what unit you purchase.
This is a great opportunity.

Please feel free to contact Doug or Neil @ 212-753-5128 with any questions or to arrange a trade-in/purchase.
