It’s just me, peeking into my blog. Just checking on you all. Hoping you’re doing well.
Those reports from George Thornton and the Outdoor Legends Tour have been pretty cool, right? What an amazing opportunity.
Well, I’m popping back in with a little post to get you prepared for the spring season. With all this overseas excitement, you didn’t forget about turkey season, did ya? I didn’t think so.
So, here’s a question for the ages: What’s better than finding out you’re good at something?
Answer: Finding out you totally stink at something (ranging turkeys in the field), then realizing there’s something you can do about it (use a rangefinder).
A couple coworkers and I did a little experiment. We stuck an Avian X decoy in various hunting scenarios — in an open field, across a creek bed, up a hill side — and did our best to guess the yardage.
Then we were gut-checked by a Leupold RX-1000i TBR rangefinder.
Nothing beats being told you’re stupid by a piece of gear that weighs less than 8 ounces.

You’ll see me totally blow my first attempt at guessing the distance to the decoy in an open field.
You’ll witness my superstar dance as I manage to somewhat accurately guess two out of three scenarios.
You’ll understand why I desperately need a rangefinder in the field.
